I got a paint set and 8 minis lol.

my pledges go down each KS as I get more into display painting and larger scale.

I'm in for the living statues (male and female) the frost giant ladies and rulers of hell (two sets) 

 

I'm currently expecting fewer than 50 minis from Bones 4, which is, by far, my smallest Bones KS order.

 

Of course, that is counting "Dance of Death" as one miniature, and counting it, and the tiny "PvP" die from the High Rollers set as equivalent items.

I'm not sure this is the best way for me to count things. :upside:

2 to 2.5 years for each core set.  In My Experience.

 

 

 

 

If I finish painting any one of the three Bones KS core sets I own before I die, I would consider it  a tremendous victory.

 

(One each: KS1, KS2, KS3)

That sounds about right in *my* experience.

 

I really need to pick up the pace as I may be dead by then. But still hoping for immortality. :zombie:

I highly recommend painting an entire Core Set at least once in your life.. You need to be determined about it (blogging or keeping a diary helps), but it gives you a great deal of satisfaction, and forces you to paint a lot of figures you might not have gravitated to normally.   My entire Bones 1 purchase  (Core Set and a bunch of add-ons: 266 figures) took me from June 2013 to December 2016.

As someone who had two children with dragon picture (2D) mobiles I applaud this. But you might want to go with extra bright and extra high contrast color schemes if you want the baby to pay attention to them.

We definitely need some incentive for Brigid to stay in the playpen - she has now mastered the arcane art of The Doorknob....

Well I was regretting getting the core because of all the human sized figures and most people wanting to get those figures in metal instead.

 

Lots of you made me feel better about it and now I'm not regretting getting the core with all the human sized figures!  So thanks!

 

To celebrate I decided to add the Wraiths to my order ::D:

I'm thinking of the value of this kickstarter not so much in terms of price per miniature, but as literally YEARS of pleasure getting them all painted.

Unpainted miniatures are also valuable as a means to fill your free time later on when you don't have any money to spend on other expensive, but more fleeting hobbies, such as golf or auto racing.

They also serve as inspiration when you are writing a scenario. (That looks like a relaxing miniature to paint. Third level PCs can handle a chimera, right?)

 

The Auld Grump - hey! It was a roleplaying encounter! It's not like the PCs will attack as soon as they see a monster, right? <_<

Just one set of wraiths? You need at least three to have 2 full NOT ringwraith sets:)

I must be the odd one out. No wraiths for me. Nothing wrong with them, just.... they aren't as fun to me. I'll be happy to snag some retail when I have need for them on a tabletop though!

I get that.  I honestly wasn't going to get them but they are only $10 so I figured what the heck.  That will probably be the last figures I get though.  From here on out it will probably just be bases and maybe the paint sets but I am undecided on those.  They are just such a good deal to pass up.

      A set of 13 hand sculpted 28mm scale sinister robed figures, for all of your pulp, horror and fantasy games.
       

       
      I backed Midlam’s Village of Witches and was very happy with them. The minis are very well cast and pretty reasonably priced.
       
      I’m particularly fond of the guy with the bells.

      About
      Hi to all and welcome in my new Kickstarter campaign! this is a little campaign, composed by three busts. Each of them is a part of a story, a legend born from folklore or...yes, why not, by me. So, let's begin to show you my three last works!
        Kuzunoha, the fox of Shinoda (large size bust)
       Kuzunoha is a popular kitsune in the japanese folklore. She was the kami of Shinoda's temple and, assuming human form, she got married with the poet Abe no Yasuna. From this love was born Seimei, a legendary Wizard. Foxes, in Japanese mitology are powerful demons and i feel myself linked to this mystical figure. Kuzunoha is a  resin bust high 10 cm and composed by four components to assemble with glue and paint. 
      Windo the traveler (Small size bust) 
      Windo is a little bust high 5cm and composed by three components. Windo is a mage...a bard and an old traveler. He tell stories to every one that want to speak with him. 
      Sometime, when I play with my immagination, I like to think that Windo is myself in the next 30 and in another world full of magic...yes...for me is really funny. So, take a look! 
      this is Windo!
        Le Chat, the monster hunter (Kickstarter edition) (large size bust)
      Le Chat is already produced but this model is really important for me so I wanna give him some optional part and create some new version of this model. This character is inspired by the cat with the boots and  by some videogame. Is an interesting kit composed by much components, much of them optional. In this special edition, Le chat has two optional medallion, a chaos star and an head cat! Hope that you like this model high 8 cm and composed by 10 components ( optional parts included)
         Medallions of Lechat Kickstarter edition
        IMPORTANT!!! In this campaign the principal rewards are two LARGE SIZE BUSTS and one SMALL SIZE BUST so, if you choose only one of the two busts, you'll be able to order  Kuzunoha or Le Chat at the end of the campaign!
      the optional medallions of Le Chat At the end of the campaign, you'll receive anyway the optional medallions of Le Chat for free!!!
      Medusa shield if your order will be over  € 50, will be also included a special gift for you, the medusa's shield! This is a bonus gift and in a limited edition. Is the shield of one of my models, Alcibiades the centaur. Is a little object molded in resin and golden powder
        For every question or help, please, contact me. I am at your disposal!
        The production of this little set will start really soon you'll receive your rewards shortly after the end of this campaign!

      Campaign link, because I'm awake now:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gameenvy/the-worlds-most-versatile-painting-handle-and-grip?ref=user_menu
      About
      The Hobby Holder is the only all-in-one mini holding solution and the most versatile painting handle and grip on the market.
      And now it is better than ever with the addition of an injection molded Ergonomic Grip Mod and XL Stability Bar that seamlessly integrate with the original Hobby Holder!  
      Since our first campaign was a smash hit last year, the original Hobby Holder All-in-one Miniature Painting Handle and Grip (Patent Pending) by Game Envy has had a global impact on miniature painting with well over 4000 painters in 54 countries now using the Hobby Holder as part of their painting arsenal!
      We have talked to hundreds of painters across the globe at conventions, online and in person, and we have listened to your wants and needs. Now we are back to add two new pieces to the Hobby Holder system: the Ergonomic Grip Mod for even greater control and comfort and the XL Stability Bar for more support with a wider range of miniature sizes. We are also adding more color to your desks with New Colors of the original Hobby Holder parts with a second production run!
      Make painting more miniatures a New Years resolution!
      The Hobby Holder is the World's Most Versatile, All-in-one Miniature Paint Handle And Grip 
      The translucent blue parts are resin printed prototypes. Attach Miniatures to the Hobby Holder with Standard 28mm Bottle Caps or Even Wine Corks for Pinning. 
      Accepts 28mm plastic caps; Citadel ™ Paint Caps; Formula P3 paint caps; and 20mm wine cork. With the innovative bottle cap attachment method, just stick your miniatures, based or unbased, to a standard soda/water bottle cap with your favorite sticky stuff (we use Loctite Fun-tak, the best blue-tak on the market!) and you can quickly and easily screw them on and off without ever touching the miniature! Perfect for batch painting because you can switch even wet miniatures without smudging.
       
      New Ergonomic Grip Mod Provides Even More Control and Comfort Tailored to How You Paint.
      Clicked into the Ergonomic Grip rotate your mini 360 degrees easily with one hand! The new Ergonomic Grip Mod gives even more support when attached to the bottom of the Hobby Holder Base and allows the use of the Stability Bar and Grip at the same time. Simply click in your Hobby Holder Base and start painting. The QuickClick design allows for Full 360 Degree Rotation of the Base with one hand while attached to the Grip Mod.
      The Ergonomic Grip Mod is two pieces and can be taken apart and weighted if desired. It also has the option to add two standard nuts to screw in the original #6-32 bolt to lock down the Hobby Holder Base and now a 1/4" bolt to attach larger platforms if desired.
      NEW XL Stability Bar Offers More Room For Larger Miniatures With the Same Superior Support.
      The New XL Stability Bar uses the same QuickClick design as the Standard Size Stability Bar and attaches right onto the Hobby Holder base in Upright or Grip modes.
      The XL Stability Bar accommodates miniatures with up to 70mm bases with ease and the offset finger support design allows you to attach miniatures that are even taller than the bar itself. The angle of the XL Stability Bar has been adjusted slightly so that even with the taller profile it is comfortable and easy to use with large or small hands.
      Ultimate Support, Brush Control and Comfort with the Original Stability Bar and NEW XL Stability Bar  
      The stability bar rotates 360 degrees so you never have to let go of your miniatures.
