And wait...  Bones and Bones Black?  Surprised to hear it won't all be Bones Black, given just how much nicer it is to work with (in some ways)...

 

They said that the current plan is for more of the smaller minis (ones with finer details and more potential for bendy weapons) to be in Bones Black, but more of the bigger ones in the regular Bones material. 

 

Later today I'll comb back through the video and pull out the exact info they shared about the KS in general. 

 

Huzzah!

Currently, I will seriously cherry pick this one, as I am feeling a bit negative about Bones KSs.  It depends on how my missing half pledge for Bones IV is resolved.  It has now been four weeks since I sent the email, and I am missing 8 large purchases from my pledge, including both Dance of Deaths.  If that is not resolved soon, I will probably give this one a miss.

I wouldn't worry overmuch, you should definitely get the rest of your order, it just takes time. It took 20 days for them to respond to my missing pieces and I was Wave 1 US and sent my detailed list of missing minis/parts after a full inventory around the time wave 2-3 were getting theirs. I would wager they're a bit more backed up now, but if you've been waiting four weeks your email is probably getting close to the top of the pile.

I love Reaper, and I quite like Bones, but I'm thinking this one might be the one where I seriously cherry pick stuff. I've still got the majority of the other 4 bones KS projects still waiting for paint.

That said, everything that has been previewed so far would make the cut.:rolleyes:

 

Haha, this is exactly how I feel as well. My shelves are so full now, I don't know how I'd make space for a similar sized ks. I'd have to pick and choose... and I'd choose everything they've shown so far ::D:

I'm really excited about the updated Cloud & Storm Giants.  The Bones 1 ones were nice sculpts but way undersized, even before Giants got their upgrade.

Facebook discussions have also indicated we should look forward to a Hill Giantess and Zombie Giant.

I'm very much in agreement with previous posters who are saying they will only back for lesser amounts, but that they want every sculpt that has been shown so far!

 

But I will sound one note of caution: After some disappointment in Bones 4 I shall not pledge for ANYTHING that we only get shown as artists concepts.

I will likely be in for all the things again. I am feeling burned out right now with both bones and kickstarters in general. I am also neck deep in fantasy monsters... but....

 

Delivery is likely 2 years away. I don't know what I will want in 2 years, and know I will regret it if miss out. Also, most of my fun is the actual review, comments and anticipation aspects that the kickstarter and message boards bring. The entertainment value is really there... and I get new toys on top of that.

 

My excitement has even brought some of my group into Bones kickstarters...

I'll certainly be cautious of any previewed miniatures. Even digital sculpts. I'm still a little raw about Argent getting a major size down. Most everything else turned out more or less agreeable, but a major advertising point for Argent was the size, and there was no communication about the change. I think something that they definitely need to do before the next KS is launched is get a new communications guy/gal. ReaperBryan did a lot that still hasn't been replaced, and that needs to be addressed before I will feel as fully invested in Reaper as I was back then.

I remember them holding up Argent in all his 12 inch glory on Reaper Live and talking about how long it took them to 3D print it. Now that I know that just because I see it in hand with Ed and Ron that it's not final, all future Bones KS pledges from me will be wildly reserved.

Finally, I don't have to pretend that I know this is coming anymore.  Still can't show you what I'm making for it, but at least now I can admit that I am. ::P:

I think you meant that you don't have to pretend that you "...[don't] know this is coming..."

 

Also, what're you making? Tell us!

Right, that's what 4 years of linguistics training will get you. :rolleyes:

 

A thing.

Wait. Is that, "4 years of training will get you: a thing?" Or was that two answers to two different points of discussion? 

 

If "A thing" is meant to indicate what you're making, then I have additional questions:

1. Is it "a" thing, or several things? Or several things that comprise a set, therefore counting as simultaneously single AND plural?

2. Is this actually a veiled spoiler that Reaper has acquired a license from Marvel and that Bones V will have a major Supers expansion, for which you are sculpting the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing?

That’s what I said on B4. Guessed what the retail would be on the figures I wanted and only bought the set if that guess at the retail sum was greater than the KS cost.

 

Wound up several hundreds of dollars.

I'm mostly just looking forward to the chronoscope expansion or unusual ones. bones 1-4 have given me about all the fantasy minis I need.
