Apparently the Pledge Manager is down for some, and not for others. I can't access it. 

Hmmm. 

Wait patiently. 

The next event to be watching for is money leaving your credit card. 

 

The event following is: KS passing all that data and big piles of money to Reaper. That is about 8(?) days out. 

 

Then it is time to jump into the Pledge Manager.

Also Chrome. Windows 10. I could try Firefox, I s'pose, but.. eh. Probably it's a hiccup.

They had an impromptu Twitch stream today. Bones 5 was the 55th best funded Kickstarter ever. 

 

(Each Bones KS falls within the top 0.4% [or 0.04%?] of all Kickstarters.)

 

Sorry, going from memory.

In the final minute of today's twitch stream they answered a question about the color of the pirate ship.  There will be at least two different options, one of which will be translucent green.

I missed the live broadcast but tried to watch the recorded version while on my break at work so I rushed through it and missed that info. 

Thanks for posting it here.

 

Thats probably upped my pledge by another $100.

I really love that monster! Thank you for making it ^_^

My baby will be 2 years old when this fulfills... is that too young to get her into painting them? :lol:

 

At this point in her life, she's pretty much just eating the paint. She's practically a new Buglips. :lol:

That is at about 53:30.

My KS payment did get sorted out; my payment showed up in my on-line account. ::D:

 

I checked the pledge manager on my computer (only had my phone before), and I'm getting the same error as some others from the laptop as well.

My immediate thought for how to use the Ghoulsbane figure was for a particular fight in the Curse of Strahd campaign. There's a monster that uses the stat block of a Shambling Mound, but feels random when you imagine it as a plant creature. It works a lot better as a grotesque pile of animated flesh, sinew and bones... basically, that would be a great figure for it.

My current plan and reasons why:

Expansions 

Getting:

The reasons I am getting these expansions is because they build onto each other, plus they interact well with figures from Bones 4.

 

Dark Depths: May try to make the Dragon Turtle from Bones 4 into a biome with all the creatures swimming around it while I do a resin pour. 

Brinewind:  Will expand the ghost pirates and Dreadmere from Bones 4. Allowing me to build a small island, swamp pirate village and a Port with a hidden cave. Like the non combat sculpts.

 

Maybe (in this order)

Chronoscape: I am sad there are not more civilian types in this expansion, plus I don't like the 3d renders that much (look too smooth)

Greek Odyssey: lots of large sculpts, some did catch my interest but I will need to decide on them (plus I dislike 3d sculpted fur when compared to hand sculpted). 
Dungeon Dwellers: I didn't buy anything from reaper during the promotion so those would give me a nice range of figures, plus I like the orc design and the kobolds fit with Bones 4.
Fan Favourite: Cockatrice, Axoloti, chicken swarm, vampire I love, but everything else is meh or not yet done.
Daimyo: Have the rising sun board game, so other stuff is more interesting. 

 

From Core

This time the core did not really call out to me so I will just pick and choose some things.

Getting:
Kid Heroes: Children will really make the civilians from Bones 4 and Dreadmere come alive.  

Gem Dragon: 4 dollar dragon. Plus painting gems seems a nice challenge.
Maybe: 
Player characters (there are some non combat minis in there) OR Feature Creatures (The stag, weasel and trolls)
Sadly most of the other sections only have 1 or 2 figures I like and I don't feel they are worth it overall (e.g. Monsters: Basilisk, Constructs: small scarecrow, Undead: undead giant plus reaper [the undead lords would require me to buy a horde of skeletons], )


Extras 

Getting

Townsfolk: Lots of fabric to paint, some kids and I can put them anywhere. 

Dragon Bust: Want to paint a bust.

Aganzarax: Like the base and general body shape of the dragon (Those horns)

Bust Collection: Want to try painting human busts.

 

Maybe:

Krateryx, Shadow Dragon: Like the body posture.
Brinewind Extras: Work with Dreadmere and Brinewind. /

Henchmen if the pictures come out.


Extra Maybe

Shavynra the Slayer: The posture and body shape seem interesting (not as interesting as above)
The other dragons if better pictures come out and I like them.
Song of the Sirens: Once again I seem to be going for the sea theme.
Maybe one of the Encounter sets (Vampires or Skeletons or Dwarves)

Payment has gone through.

Now to wait for a while for things to settle down.

Then slowly add some more in the PM till I get what I really want.

I will probably shuffle the money around drop something/add something.

Fun times.

 

As somebody who only paints for display and fun I can use creatures in armies to my own desire not being limited to rules.

So Undead and Monsters will find a way in my collection.

 

The Ship and the Sea Creatures are awesome.

I was wondering about the Brinewind Extra Set, it's wonderful, but the only thing I find a bit odd is that the Bar wasn't a separate add on.

Why?

Because I could use doubles of carts, boats,docks,  barrels and such, but I would only need one Bar.

That's preventing me from getting an extra copy of the set.

I was planning on getting doubles and flipping the bar around creating a free standing bar with an enclosed work place in the middle.

 

I see someone else here has already posted they were planning to do the same.

 I read that, I was thinking about it, but not sure if it would fit.

It would make an awesome diorama.

On the other hand, I imagine some people might like to have the Bar but don't really need a bunch more barrels, because things like that are readily available from other manufacturers. An "extra" bar would probably be a relatively easy thing to re-sell on the secondary market.

      Hello!
       
      We're back with another small campaign. 9 minis sculpted by Boris Woloszyn, we cast in crisp resin and the whole set is 50USD. (40USD if you pledge during the first 12 hours)
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/barbarians-bards-and-buccaneers
       
      Thanks or having a look!

      Does anybody know where i can see a video with the Deathrattle Ballista in it, not just the rendering?  Or at least the rendering with a size indicator of some kind?  I looked back at all the Bones 5 Live videos and saw no demos.  I pledged rather a pretty high amount compared to the average pledge (call it temporary insanity), and I am trying to decide how many ballista add-ons i would like.  Reaper has been good about showing most everything else, at least over time.  Friday's showing of the dragon Wolf rendering was promising.  Any info on the ballista would be appreciated.  The Catapult is too big for me to consider for my purposes but if the ballistas are much smaller, i might get 3 or 4.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915792245/1614419087?ref=6j5c5t&token=15b18208
       
      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.
