The budget is in tatters. At least .. at least I can spread it out over a few months, it won't impact /quite/ as catastrophically as it would else.

 

You had to know that was the case going into this, right?

 

I knew my wallet wouldn't survive intact. I've already started flaying it, but it hasn't given up any more for pledges! ::(:

 

I too am glad I can add to it over the next several months.

Well, I'm no longer lurking anymore.  Now to spread my lovely presence to this forum.  After backing a BUNCH of money on Bones 3, I am super excited for Bones 4!

 

Alas, I don't have access to near as much funds now as I did those years back, to the point that my pledge is under half of the average right now.  Thankfully, the Pledge Manager will be around to take our money for the next year; I wouldn't want to miss out on the dinosaur models!

 

(Also thankfully, my wife and step-daughter are excited for many of the new models, particularly the female giants and the "cute" models, so was will be painting some models together.)

Today is now the 4th best day of the kickstarter. Only $11,011 to go until today takes over the 3rd spot, so that'll happen this next hour. Currently sitting at the point where we were at between 2100-2200 yesterday. Amazing gains with the latest reveal.

 

Need 13 more backers today to push today up another slot.

I'm hopeful that there will be extra translucent options this time. I guess there's no chance of getting the two large dino options as translucents? It would be really cool though!
 

Others that would be interested in translucent, would be the tree (imagine a ghostly tree!) and the 2 rulers of hell. Even the skeletal monsters would be fun as translucents. :D

 

Guess I'll have to wait and see, and hope!

I'd guess DoD would be around $200-300 given similar size resin dragons.. but I'm not holding my breath..  

 

I would bet on the higher side, but yeah, that sounds plausible.

 

Nethyrmaul was $300 in resin.

Extra translucent figures would be great this time. Not sure that'll happen to figures that have already been revealed though, though possible if enough people request a translucent T-Rex.

Dang.  That is exactly what Glitterwolf would want, but he so wrapped in the double VAT issues that he isn't going to enjoy it like he should... :down:

 

 

It's allright.

I will put my trust in Reaper to help resolve problems if they occur.

I actually got more annoyed by the fact that someone attacked me for asking questions.

 

WTH would someone attack you for asking RELEVANT questions, this is your money we are talking about:( What, you were infringing on their gazebos questions or their "nothing to do whatsoever" comments in the KS comments? Was the attack on KS? I hate we cannot get that modded:(

Do you have to have the 100$ pledge level to receive core set? Can I be at the 1$ pledge level and just increase my pledge when the pledges are being finalized in years time or whenever and receive the core set still?

Yes, that's exactly how it works. As a matter of fact, you do not even have to get the core set at the 100 buck level. they just did it to give people options. I am currently on the buck or more, and will eventually before PM closes get the core set.

@ladystorm can you move this to the information thread:)

I'm amazed that Dance of Death is out, that it's only $30, and that it is *not* the capstone of Bones IV.

 

I believe pledges have jumped in *many* multiples of $30.

Hmm, spring 2017...Just one season off:)

Ah, but if we're talking about southern hemisphere seasons. Then we're early!

 

Hey, I'm *in* that picture! Second red shirt from the right. The unshaved one.

 

Wait... I'm a Red Shirt?!

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      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
