1. Hi, new to the forum and first time backer of the Bones KS. Only started painting recently and I am super excited to get my hands on these minis (I know, 2019 is a long way away).

Welcome! I got into mini painting because of Bones 1 KS, that wait for the first delivery was killer (good anticipation, but...). I ended up buying all the learn to paint kits that Reaper sold on their website while waiting.

Reaper has said that they don't offer parts of the core set separately early in the campaign. That's a late-campaign addition for reasons of developing and maintaining excitement.

 

(There are comments to that effect earlier in this thread; only 160 pages to read to find them. :poke:)

 

True. I even think it makes sense.

 

The only downside for me is that it makes it very hard to gauge my own pledge right now, because I can't be sure whether the core set has crossed the "buy this thing" vs. "pick up a few items" level yet.

 

Yeah, yeah. First world problems and all that. ::P:

I grow irritable.

It's my own fault. Experience has taught me that the reading of comments sections on the Internet is all too often a waste of time, effort, and blood pressure medication. But some of the folks on the KS comments are really, REALLY, out of line. 

Perhaps I am too self centered. I tend to think most people think the same way I do (a fallacy if there ever was one). Y'see, I originally dropped a buck, just to be able to cherrypick from the items offered. After considering what was offered in the Core Set, and what was LIKELY to be offered as stretch goals, I changed my mind and dropped a C note, followed by some sawbucks as some of the add ons appeared and appealed to me.

I have not bought all the add ons. I don't want them all. And that's okay.

Screaming about how I don't want Skeletal Monsters and you're all a big doodoohead for putting them in there and you never add anything I want and wah wah wah... is not okay.

Y'see, I've already put IN for the stuff I want. I may pay more, as more is unlocked; I may not. Up to me. But as far as I'm concerned, anything added to the core set now is FREE. And it is not in my nature to complain about free things handed to me, unless they're going to be a hassle to dispose of, like used mattresses and large heavy appliances that don't work. 

So if Bryan is going to ship me his old mattresses and his burned out microwave as Special Stretch Goals, then he and I are going to have harsh words. But CHIBIS? Seriously, people? FREE chibis? I didn't WANT them, because I didn't know they EXISTED. As it is, I'll likely end up painting them for Dances With Mouselings and collect many smooches. At absolute worst, I'll give them to the kids at work.

What's the PROBLEM? Jeez.

And that Facebook jazz is why there exists an account for Tom O. Bedlam, and why there's this other account somewhere else under my right name that no one ever looks at except my coworkers and a few people I knew in high school.

 

 

Well some people will complain about everything.

If I get something for free I don't like, I will happily donate it in a box of goodwill or maybe even sell it on evilbay ( OMG free Money! The Horror!!!).

Or just give them to my nephews as toys.

 

As for fartbook, just not my thing, but I have no problems with it.

If I want to post about silly things or mundain activities to friends, I will post it here in the randomness...

I don't Facebook, for one.

 

I daresay I may be missing useful things. But from what I hear I am also missing some very tedious and missable things.

 

About 40% of my Facebook feed has a striking resemblance to this forum.

Yeah I got the one with the skeleton, knight and orc and played around with that. Think it actually turned out pretty well despite my complete lack of artistic ability.

 

Bones are great for gaming, but they are also great for practice.

 

The low-cost of Kickstarter Bones is remarkably freeing, when you want to try something crazy, silly, or unusually difficult.

 

I hope Bones IV enhances your experience so far!

I got about 100 minis from a friend's Descent v. 1 and they too are great for practice. Doesn't matter much if they don't turn out great since they were freee.

My new Pig Faced Orcs would never have happened if not for a largish bag of leftover Bones orcs. Not only good practice, but conversions are WAY easy.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
