@Smokestack New Zealand has a weird thing where it has a threshold of $60 for duty and GST where you wont get charged for importing things, $205 is right on the edge and if I go over its about and extra $104 NZD and it gets seized by customs until I pay it. soooo I think ill keep it how it is

That is actually normal practice.

We have something like this, where you pay nothing for a package with a combined value of under 22 Euro, you pay 19% taxes (VAT) between 22-150 Euro and customs of varying percentages for anything worth more than that.

But ordering stuff for under 22 Euro is kinda unrealistic anyway.

Super excited I could add some bases at a smokin price!  So got some bases and flight sticks. 

 

My budget was set for $400 and looks like my total after adding everything I want is $397.43.  That puts me at $40/month for the next 10 months. So this is my list (subject to change).

 

I am getting:

Dreadmere

Fire Giant Huntsman

Paint set B

Roc

Zombie Dragon

Frost Giant Raiders

Rulers of Hell

Black Sting

Black tooth (not my style but this should deliver around my son's bday and he'll love it)

DoD

Moss beard

Nyarlathotep

Argent

Coming in to this one, I felt like I had pretty much everything I needed already, so I put down a pledge of $1 on the first day and awaited developments.  I ended up at $430...

 

It looks like I'm in for:

 

Chronoscope

Dreadmere

Lost Valley

Fan Favorites (between the gate and the mammoth I'm happy; more cavalry will be needed expansion at retail)

 

High Rollers (just for fun, to be painted in the colors of the original dice distributed by TSR)\

Paint Set A

Living Statues- Spartans

Living Statues- Amazons

Tree of Despair (to go with Dreadmere, most likely)

Paint Set B

We Will Roc You (because huge birds are not a practical thing in vintage lead)

Thunderfoot behemoth (for Lost Valley)

Fantasy Scenics

Blackfoot Terror (also for Lost Valley)

Stygian Barge (not sure why, but it calls to me...just put some coins in my mouth when it's time...)

 

 and some core bits

Monsters x2 (#1 son is a wyvern fan)

Dire beasts (want the crab for Ghost Archipelago some day)

Villagers (since one always needs more)

Snake Cultists (added last to round at close to 430 as possible, will be wanted for Ghost Archipelago)

Ghost Pirates (for...guess...Ghost Archipelago)

Sophie and Friends (because everyone needs a barmaid Sophie).

That's only $48 in core, so I don't think a whole set will be added at the last minute

Looks like you can also buy bases in the pledge manager?

 

With the ForgePrints AdventureScapes and other KS coming up, I cut back to "only" pledging for still more than I do for most of my KS. :lol:

 

I pledged more for the Secret Weapon Miniatures game tiles, Bones III, Bones II, and that's it! 

 

How was everyone's pledges for Bones IV vs. other projects?

As always for me Dwarven Forge is a lot higher. This one will either stay at 150 bucks (low shipping) or balloon to 350 or so (the next big tier of shipping)

See y'all at Reaper Con. 

Speaking of Reaper Con.

 

Considering the amount of digital sculpts in Bones 4, I wouldn't be surprised if their were a large number of prototypes displayed during the convention.

 

Seeing a full sized Argent would be fun. (Though I can't make it this year, so I'll trust you all to take nice pictures).

Couldn't  be around for the final hours, as we had company over last night.   And I just spent this morning trying to catch up on about 20 pages of "enthusiasm" here! Really makes me feel for all of you who had to do the same catching up over the last weeks! :blink: We all talk a lot! ::D:

 

Like others, I feel the ending was a bit mediocre.  But maybe that's because a lot of us have done all this before, so we constantly need bigger and better to be impressed.  

 

There seemd to be a lot of hints and teases that were never followed up on, which is odd for Reaper, as they always seem so careful about limiting what they say, and managing customer expectations.   I wonder if the employees were swept up a little in the excitement of it all just like us, and that combined with fatigue made for some "loose lips".

 

I hope the third part of the barge group is unlocked and added to the PM.   Judging by what was added to the PM in Bones 3,  it seemed to be stuff that really went logically with things in Bones 3 that had already been unlocked.  (Like the Dagon Statue because Dagon was already there, and the Werebeasts 2, because Werebeasts 1 had already been unlocked).  So I'm hoping the third part of the barge set is specific enough to that set, it makes Reaper want to include it now.

 

Also surprised there was no cat dragon.  Of all the things that was fan mentioned, this seemed to me to have the most fan base support.   Even if they had just presented artwork, and not a render.  To me it seems it was a missed opportunity, as who knows if there will be that kind of groundswell of support again...

 

 

That all being said, I had a blast!  One of the main reason these Kickstarters are so appealing to me is the social aspect.  These 530+ pages of good humor and support are worth a large part of the Pledge value in my opinion.  Thanks all for adding to the Reaper Kickstarter enjoyment!  ::D: This is the most enjoyable way to buy minis that there is. 

 

  It will be fascinating to see what develops over the next few weeks!

Dreamt last night That I was painting the Nyarlathotep mini, except that every time I looked away it changed a bit. Thankful not even Reaper is that realistic!

I woke up and immediately went to the kickstarter and then sadly remembered the excitement is over. Well back to painting up the previous bones and waiting happily for the new ones.

Is it wrong that I'm suddenly already bored with all my new Bones 3 minis now, and want all this cool new Bones 4 stuff instead! :lol:

Spend $100 more on 4 than on 3.

I would have spent way less for Bones 3 than I now have.

On my wish list right now there is stuff for $755 before shipping and VAT. 

The bf offered to pay for the terrain and dinos/animals, since he wants that stuff as well for either Warhammer or wildshaping use, and we won't need it twice. @Thes Hunter 's breakdown of the sets was really helpful to figure out what each animal in those sets costs.

 

So now my wishlist includes:

Coreset

Dreadmere

Darkreach

Lost Valley

Fan Favorites (least favorite expansion, so that one is gonna go first)

Hill Giants

Wraiths

Narglauth

Fire Giant Huntsman

Paint Set A (maybe not)

Trolls

Rocky

Dragon Turtle

Skeletal Monsters

Tree of Despair

Baba Yaga's Hut

Paint Set B (also maybe not, but more likely to stay than A)

Zombie Dragon

Hill Giant Huntsman

Roc x2

Agramon

Frost Giant Raiders :wub:

Rulers of Hell

Blacksting

Thunderfoot

Blacktooth

Fantasy Scenics

Skeletal Dragon

Mossbeard

Stygian Barge

Argent

Artbook (maybe)

 

Uff, would have been easier to write down what we don't want. But he other way around I just got reminded of all the awesome stuff coming to our doorstep 2019. I should be well rounded to deal with most DnD situation, maybe a little light on dragons.

 

Oh, and I somehow had nightmares of someone having a face out of that moss/rotting texture of Mossbeard. :blink:

Currently about $300 lower than Bones 3.

 

Among other things, I haven't pledged on the Chronoscope, nor Lost Valley expansions. Nor have I chosen the scenery ones, and none of the dinos, nor the original Conan ones.

 

Though Bones 3 had a lot of post-campaign add-ons that I pledged on. All of the DVDs; Savage Avatars 2; clear Kyphryxis; larger fire giant resculpts added +$200 (with shipping).

 

If the same thing happens with Bones 4, I ain't done paying.

 

 

BTW, I *really* want to see a Sophie adventure band featuring her friends.

 

I'm also curious about the lady minotaur's name.

 

Classic cow names are (Google search): Bessie, Clarabelle, Betty Sue, Emma, Henrietta, Ella, Penelope, Nettie, Anna, Bella, Annabelle, Dorothy, Annie, Molly, Gertie, Daisy.

 

Though my vote is for a pun, so I'll call her MOOnica.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
