I see to recall a video where it was stated that while there would be some Chronoscope figures that it wouldn't be a big part of this KS.  And not much in the way of SCI-FI.

I thought he said the Chronoscope expansion isn't until later on the next map.  If it's not until Map 6, that's discouraging, because they initially started this project planning on only 5 maps. 

I'm getting really discouraged about sci-fi in Bones 5.  In Bones 2, the Chronoscope expansion was revealed before the mid way point, and the first unlock of it was on Day 19 at $1,965,00. In Bones 3, we had the Blackstar Corsairs revealed AND unlocked on day 1, and the Sledgehammer unlocked on day 12 at $1,310,000. And in Bones 4, the Chronoscope expansion was revealed on Day 2 and fully unlocked by Day 12 and 1,210,000.  And here we are at day 17 and $2,031,000 and no sci-fi in sight. 

Not going to stop me from backing, because there is stuff I want, but I was really looking forward to some new sci-fi stuff this time. 

 

I don't think we've heard anything official about Chronoscope (through KS channels) only Ron's teasing.  I'm getting discouraged, too.  There are other places I can spend money if this KS doesn't have anything for me.  I know it's the slow week, but I'm seriously contemplating cutting back my pledge.  Right now I'm looking at ~$75 worth of items we're interested in.  And the $50 for the expansion is only because DH wants the new Yephima.

Sure, but I didn't think it was going to make Bones 3 look like a bounty of Sci-Fi.  Bones had only Blackstar Corsairs (5 figures), the Sledgehammer, and Space Mouslings.

You can paint over it though...

But you loose the ability to take advantage of the translucent effects if you are doing any sort of color scheme change on a colored translucent figure.

Gee, thanks! <_<

 

If it means anything, most of the prepainted are the non-character figures. PCs are either Wizkids Unpainted or Reaper.

Let's hope it doesn't end up as an undefined blob in the finished piece. 

 

 

They could make it a separate part & have the user install themselves. I know Reaper likes to make idiot-proof minis but something like this they need to do something like this. Make it a "model". If you can't assemble a model, get a cheap plastic kit & learn!!

Can I ask what colour you’re using.

Usually white because I like to paint bright colors and think they pop better over white. I have used black in some situations though like when painting Garghuk. I primed him with black and then did a zenithal highlighting spray with white.

They showed it again.  An artist had this on their twitch stream, and Reaper reached out, and plan (hope) to make it into a mini for the Core set.

I need that down in the depths of my soul!!! ::o: 
 

Spoopy time!

GEM DRAGON!
Hoping to be translucent (color not defined)

The Gem Dragon has a 2" base


Ooo gem dragon is nice, love the crystal spikes. I am also hoping for clear. (Which would most likely mean that I get more than one of them.)

If it's cast in translucent red we get a Ruby Dragon.

 

If it's cast in green, an Emerald Dragon.

 

Blue a Sapphire Dragon, orange a Topaz Dragon, purple an Amethyst Dragon.

 

If it's cast in clear we get ALL of these things and more. And will need to buy a new model EACH TIME. A Jade dragon, a Lapis Dragon, a Diamond Dragon, an Opal Dragon, a Turquoise Dragon, an Onyx Dragon, an Obsidian Dragon...

 

A new model needed EACH TIME.

 

Think of teh monies, Reaper... A new model for every gem...

ReaperPeeps are looking for suggestions for a name for it, they gave details on how to submit them but audio was so bad I didn’t catch them.

      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.
