Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, NecroticDamage said:

Also, as I am new here, does anyone know on average these minis will take to hit retail once all waves of the kickstarter go out and are received? Or even ones from the previous kickstarters if they haven't hit the market yet?

 

     It takes from a year to two years for the stuff to hit market.  Bones 4 was just delivered this past Spring, and very little has been released yet, as they only release 20-25 models a month so as not to flood distribution channels. As the number of total figures grows in these Kickstaters it takes longer to get them all out.    

 

    Also, there are a very small handful of stuff that has either never hit market, or took a few years, from previous Kickstarters; a couple becuase of faulty molding, and some like the Bones 3 Weapon Sprues that they never could figure out a practical packaging system for.

I wonder if this deceleration is something Reaper did on purpose. I mean, with Shavinra, the Greek Expansion, Spiders and the Giant things were going quite fast: maybe too fast, considering how early we are. Ruin Wights and Dark Elves aren't the kind of stuff that inspires increased pledges. Wonder if Reaper keeps this kind of stuff to reveal it when a break is needed, or it was really prepared to be revealed now. 

 

 

     Probably a valid theory. Everything can't be a big "Wow!" reveal, and they tend to keep those to launch the KS and then to wrap it up at the end.    Reaper are experts at managing these Kickstarters and know just how to manage reveals to squeeze the most out of their backers' wallets, and have us enjoy it while it's happening! :lol:

I like the Darkelfs. They fit with the ones we got from Darkreach, and I really liked those. 

I have 12 or so Elves painted up, so they haven't jumped to the front of my painting queue, but they're a solid addition to the core. 

There were a lot of options and Add Ons revealed recently, so it's nice we're back on to core unlocks. That's money I already spent :lol:

I am really excited still and I wonder what other expansions are coming.  Maybe a pirate one?

 

I looked through all of the ReaperCon images and it looks like most of those items are in the KS already.  I am really hoping for more giants and demons/devils.  I know another giant is coming, but I don't think I have seen any previews of demons/devils.  Maybe they were just in Bones 4 (which I missed).

There was a succubus trio in the Reapercon photos I think , if you count them as demons...

Here's what came to mind when the pirate ship was relieved    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OMlaUnkY1w

Garfield's Halloween Adventure

Garfield Over the Raging Sea We Go

  • Sixty men all lost at sea,
  • All of them drunk except for me,
  • 'Twas I who had to face the storm,
  • With nothing in sight to keep me warm.
  • Yo ho ho ho,
  • Over the raging sea we go,
  • Yo ho ho ho,
  • Wherever the four winds blow, hey!

 

Welcome!

Great Poem!

Don't recall seeing this in previous comments here, but over in the KS comments there is discussion of making the Ship in translucent material and Ron & Ed are going to actually seriously research it. It may be a strong possibility if they can do translucent in styrene & abs. If so, we may be able to get a translucent green ghost ship to go with the sailors from the last KS.

 

Oh please No!

Only if they do it in two versions then, we need at least one generic ship to be able to function as a Navy/Merchant/Pirate Ship.

While I love Undead it would be too specific in translucent.

It might put me off buying it.

Translucent wouldn't bother me. It's easy enough to paint over. Plus, you get the benefit of having translucent windows for the captain's cabin!

A slowdown right now is expected. The middle couple of weeks are all about adding backers slow and steady, increasing social media awareness and keeping everyone tuning in each day to consider upping their pledge. These types of campaigns really only expect about 1 percent of their final total in the middle days. They have said in the last few campaigns that spacing our the goals to try and hit ~1 a day in the middle period see to be their goal from an engagement standpoint. 

 

I did a quick graph of the last couple of kickstarters

Bones 4 is in Blue.

Bones 3 is in Red ( Extrapolated to equalize the days) 

Bones 5 is Grey

My projections for Bones 5 is in yellow.

image.png.33dbc7d66cb531756e9ed9f384777c47.png

 

I followed the last two kickstarters very closely and they followed a fairly predictable trend of early jump, slow growth, then big party at the end. There is something different about Bones 5. It got a much bigger jump out of the gate both with backers and money. My estimate is that we are trending to $4.5 million. And we really are to set some new Reaper records they will spring some extra great stuff on us.

 

* Not on my methodology- I calculated the percentage of total that was pledged by 11 days in Bones 4 and used that to project the total for bones 5. I then used the percentage for each day in Bones 4 to project the per day in Bones 5. Certainly not perfect but I used Bones 2,3 to extrapolate for Bones 4 and it tracked fairly well

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.
