Probably is.

She has dogs, worked with rescue groups, did S&R with them, all that.


Thank you, ladystorm, for the further details!

Wow, had no idea about the bard figure.  Even more glad I'm getting the fan favorites now, that's cool. 



Glad to hear I wasn't the only one!

   As folks make their final decisions, you need think about February 2019, and which things will you be seeing photos of posted in the Bones 4 Shipping thread, over which you'll be kicking yourself and saying, "Why didn't I get one of those, when I had the chance and they were priced so reasonably! 


You know we're alll going to be doing it... So plan ahead! :lol:

Good point!:lol:


Did anyone who was at the party yesterday take any pics? Did you post 'em somewhere?

There are a lot of tiny details that are fun to find. For instance: The Ettine in the Core Set is wielding a sort of axe-like looking weapon. On closer inspection, I'm pretty sure that it's an anvil tied to a tree-sized club. :D

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).

I think most, if not all, digital sculpts were given away at the party.

Yes the Cultist lady is something I really wanted too.

And I'm not really a Chibi fan, I've painted one, and I do have a few unpainted ones.

But the only one I liked was Cleocathra..she didn't show either.


Well, maybe next time!

Can't win them all.


And this is a huge succes, I mean asking $30K and getting over $3M is awesome right?


So where or what is this cultist? Sorry for my ignorance, but were is this from?

Ok, my going to reveal a lack of knowledge that I probably shouldn't, and probably reduce any small "forum cred" I may have had, but what is the significance of the so specifically named, Isobael Bard, figure in the Fans'  Favorites Expansion.



I know everyone else already answered this, but Izzy had said she wanted a bard to sculpt and I think that's how isobel came about.

@Ratmaster2000 The cultist was a preview in green.

I would have been in for that cultist. I'm not that into the Mythos creatures but am building up a cult that will be summoning the more traditional demons or undead and such.


Time for me to step back from the PM, let my wallet relax and focus on some other things. In a couple months I should have some cash and I can continue to wrack my brain over how many living statues do I need, do I need both paint sets, one, none, how many armoured goblins, etc.

Well I've definitely spent more this time around. But then that wasn't hard.


Bones 1: $0. I was making next to no money as a home care aid, my partner was paying for job training.

Bones 2: $0. I was unemployed, my partner was being screwed over as a pharmacy tech.

Bones 3: $60. The state of CA was telling me I'm unemployable, my partner was tired of being screwed over and looking for better jobs.

Bones 4: $115 minimum, probably closer to $200. I'm writing for commissions, my partner works for the IRS.


Jobs are important.

@Chaoswolf reading the comments after the fact, I had much the same impression of the "enthusiasm" here as well.


In any case, this project is going to be successful in taking more of my money over the next year than any other. I couldn't afford more than a minimal pledge now, but when all is said and done we'll be spending $717, before shipping. That includes an extra roc for a friend. 


We're very excited for the dragons, the barge, the mammoth, the portal, the turtles, the lady giants!!:wub:, the djinn, and all the other spiffy stuff. There's so many cool pieces in this KS!

No Mr Bones?


Did I miss him?  I tried checking back and 80k posts and 540 pages here I couldn't find mention of him or his missus.




He led the campaign..no mini was revealed.


I would like to see the end of the comic, but I guess it will not come anymore.

      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)
      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.

    • By Knight of the Dinner Table
      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 ...
