did I read somewhere that the new KS the white bones will be.a little darker, one of the reasons I did not buy any bones at retail for awhile was I could not see the detail very well in the packaging.  Now bear in mind my eyes are pretty bad without my reading glasses for detail 

 

And this would be why so many of us do a wash of brown liner to start when painting Bones.  It helps you see the details so much better!

I'd like chime in that statistically, we have only had a 20% return rate of backers form previous projects, so while this is your experience, and I do not wish to dismiss or discount it, for 80% of our backers, this is their first Bones KS, and to them it is ALL new and exciting. Well, mostly, at any rate. We have a diverse customer base to anticipate the needs of, and prepare for, and that means that common fantasy races and themes are repeated often.

And technically, this is my first TRUE KS, as I missed the last one and bought the core set off Ebay::o: And extra sets of the chill out, wild west oz and savage worlds groups:) I am hoping the core set gets more cool stuff to woo me to buy it:) I am all down for the griffin, wraiths and dice though:) Heck I may even throw down for the trolls. If I don't use them, I can always sell em::P:

I love goblins, but it's a bummer that all the sculpts in the horde o' gobbos are so much less re-poseable than other bones goblins.  It's why I didn't order any extras of them in bones 3.  I love the Pathfinder goblins and even the OG bones goblins for how easy it is to mod them into unique poses.  One of my li'l pathfinder gobbos is even making an obscene gesture, bless his heart. :wub:

Yeah, I think the paint jobs will be the defining factor for individuality.

 

Although sculpt C (scimitar with shield) can be converted into throwing all sorts of gobliny things (molotov, bottle of eeew, severed head...)

I really hope I can get the pig and cart by themselves when they split up the core. Otherwise I'll be waiting for retail.

 

We have started to prefer getting heroes in metal for better detail. I agree with a lot of other people, I didn't need another set of Goblins in B3 and the same is true today. Other than checking all the boxes on missing dragons I don't need more generic dragons either.

 

So far looks like I'll be getting the crab/croc group by itself and the not-modrons. We are repeat backers but I haven't even bothered to put in my $1 pledge yet since there is no rush. So there might be a lot of former backers still sitting on the sidelines like me and that could be why the 20% seems low.

 

I'd love to get in on terrain but I suspect it will be more pieces like dragons don't share or bonehenge rather than terrain I could actually use regularly like resin bases. So we will see.

Wait, so if we paint a goblin blue we get a visit from the Magnificent Buglips?  Do we get multiple visits for multiple blue goblins?  Because, I'm thinking I might need to stock up on blue paint!

 

You might not be so enthusiastic to meet @buglips*the*goblin once you've been greeted by his stench. 

 

Just saying.

 

But wait... I think I have painted a blue goblin...

*runs off, checks her AD&D Partha paints. *

 

*finds them all there*

 

*collapses and wipes forehead in relief*

...and caught up! (For only about a minute, I'm sure)

 

I managed to snag a wave 1, backer # 748 on my phone during lunch yesterday, woo-hoo!

 

So, gazebos are a thing?

 

And 20% of us are obsessed.

 

and HOLY FREAKIN' COW!!! A big ol' dragon in the core set!!

 

I'm in soooo much trouble; I like pretty much everything so far.

I'm not gonna complain about getting a veritable army of goblins, but... Would anyone be interested in a trade? I've got a real soft spot for the Pathfinder goblins!

Not sure if you were joking or not, and I'm not trying to give you a hard time, but if  you didn't know, selling/trading discussions aren't allowed on the forums.

Via PM's is ok, but Reaper assumes no responsibility for any such agreement between forum members.

Ooh this is a FABULOUS idea, I hadn't thought of thrown stuff!  

 

The core set is looking more and more likely for me.  I love the armored gobbos, direcritters, all the various NPC's, and the minitaurs.  Oh and the rat ogre will be great for Blood Bowl.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
