Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion


Recommended Posts

Quick question Reaperbryan, and I think you might have already answered this:  you mentioned that the clear weapons are a hard styrene plastic.  Is that the same plastic that you mentioned Katie has been testing for the Legendary Encounters, or was that test on the standard translucents Bones material?


It shouldn't make much difference, but I'm just curious - I know that the Tamiya Clear paints work great on the Bones, but if it's a different plastic being used for the weapons...

I'm going to need some glowey weapons.  Red or Blue? that breaks down evil & good, while purple would be general purpose magic. 

I should only get 1. hmm  


what do Y'all think ?


I think this kickstarter just got a lot more expensive.


For the glowy weapons I agree with some of the previous comments.

I see the clear useful for invisible weapons, maybe for ice.

-blue for general magical weapons,

-green for ghostly or undead beings,

-purple for evil or cursed,

-red for flame/heat


Would have been nice to have a sword or two with a tubular blade included.

Will probably adding those fire giants to me pledge my bones 1 storm giant is going to be teeny tiny now though......he may have to go.


Not being greedy, are we likely to see more addons added later, to squeeze us even more dry seeing as we can keep adding, and adding, and adding and adding........ :)

We are pretty sure that this is all of the power ups, although we certainly might come in and add something later if it strikes our fancy.


Honestly, though, 80% of our backers are expected to lock in once and be done with it, and never return to place additional "orders" even though the system allows it, so we tried to make sure as many as possible were there for that initial wave of availability.

I'm willing to bet you are wrong on the 80%. I think it will be much closer to 50%. So good news for Reaper. :lol:

I'm trying to decide if I need the new Fire Giants. How tall will the new Frost Giants be in comparison? I think I remember someone saying they would be 90 mm? Compared to Sir Forscale, in the preview pic, they look to be more like 75 mm though? /shrug


Also will there be any chance of some new scale Cloud Giants at some point?

I like the current Giants and had bought them. I'd much rather get new poses but can live with slightly different sculpts but if not changing much, I would wish for two changes: a more upright pose for the fire giant bodyguard (on a game table now no one can see his face which is facing down too much) and a more active battle pose for the queen.

Aye, these giants will ALL be mine. MINE! !!! !!!!!


QFT, I will need all the giants.


Agree with Pingo

Would love to see the female in a more dynamic pose if at all possible. All the dudes look like they are waging a war and she looks like she bought her first push up bra and wants everyone to check it out. I mean, I do have her in metal and bones since I do think she is lovely, but would love to she her on par with the males action wise.


I personally love the giant weapons.

I am very interested in these clear weapons. Trying to decide if I need one of each. Do you know if they will still be rigid when clear?

I'm intrigued by the variety of colors. Why do you want the different colors?


Because you're only allowed 10 of any given reward.

Katie clarified.  She is using the Tamiya clears on the existing translucent Bones models from B1 & B2, not on styrene.

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      A new kickstarter from Crooked Dice. I've been following the publicity for this and it really appeals to me. Lots of very colourful figures and most of them are a nice change from the usual predictable gun-toting heavies. I've collected plenty of Crooked Dice figures over the years and always been very pleased with the quality.

      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.

      Nice models and one of the SG is a 20% discount on the Kimera Colors range (They will open a pre-order for their "almost-impossible-to-buy" colors at the end of April)

      Pretty straightforward, a lady with more or less clothes.
      Introducing "Misa, a Night to Remember"! 
      On our store there is already an alternative version of Misa. In this project we decided to make it with more accessories, and through the objects, a different pose and always ... less dressed!
      She will be available in 75mm as well as 32mm scale, base and fullbody. By pledging you will receive the .STL files (unsupported and pre-supported) once the campaign has ended.
      So Happy 3D Printing everyone!
