Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread ((RPM CLOSES December 1st))

Recommended Posts

Cool!  I always wanted that knight, but never had it in the budget to pay the metal price! 
 

Is Eve an existing figure too, or is she new?

Very rough but this is where it standsa WIP so to speak

 

That looks very, very, highly Mil-Spec. Don't ask me how I know...  :lol: :ph34r:

 

(The USAF has books (entire books!) called Fault Identification manuals which used a vertical, flow down the page, formatting which could be useful here...did USN have anything similar?)

She exists. Although I couldn't tell you from what event. I picked her up at Origins a couple of years ago and I'm sort of confident she was a limited run figure. Happy to be getting a bones version though. It's such a nice mini that I've been reluctant to start her. This will eventually give me something to practice on. 

 

Nevermind all that above. She can be found under the number 01450.

I just realized that except for the thematic changes, she is the twin of her sister the Christmas Eve figure.

She is existing. She made her appearance a couple years ago, without any fanfare. Same year as the Halloween tree.

Eve came out during ReaperCon. The same year as the Knight.  2017 perhaps? One of the years, it was held at the former Best Buy building. 

 

I wanna say she was also the Visit the vendors, get a mini redemption offering as well.

 

I've got both in metal so this one is a ehh for me.

So I just went back through the updates at the end of the Bones 4 campaign to see what some of the "special" unlock points were:
 

Core Set Extras were not added until 4 days before the end of the campaign (update 55)
at 46 hours to go, Fantasy Scenics were added as an additional stretch goal along side the previously revealed Blacksting at $2.21M (update 58)
Update 60, which announced the unlock of a core add-on at  $2.29M  also added the Blacktooth terror add-on stretch goal along side the previously revealed Stones Tiles add on at $2.38M
at 30 hours to go, Dance of Death was added along side the Blacktooth Terror and Stones Tiles add on at $2.38M (update 61)
At the $2.38M unlock, a core addition AND the skeletal dragon add on were announced for $2.48M (update 62)

at 24 hours to go, Treebeard was added to the $2.48M stretch goal. (update 63)
at 21 hours to go, Fan Favorites part one was unlocked (update 64)

Update 65 announced the unlock of the $2.48M goal. Nothing new was revealed in this update. 

Update 66 revealed a core addition stretch goal at $2.63M
Update 67 unlocked the $2.63M core addition, and announced the Stygian Barge pt 1 stretch goal at $2.8M

at 6 hours to go, Fan Favorites part 2 was unlocked (update 68)

Update 69 unlocked Stygian Barge pt one at $2.8M and announced the Stygian Barge pt 2 stretch goal at $3M
at 3 hours left, Nyarlathotep was announced as a $2.9M stretch goal (update 70)
Update 71 unlocked Nyarlathotep, and announced the addition of the Argent stretch goal at $3M along side Stygian Barge Part 2
at 90 minutes to go, Fan Favorites part 3 was unlocked (update 72)

at one hour to go, Sophie and Friends was added as a Core Stretch goal of $3.1M (update 73)
at 40 minutes to go, Fan Favorites part 4 was unlocked (update 74)
update 75 announced the unlock of the $3M stretch goals of Argent and Sygian Barge pt 2
at 15 minutes to go, the Talin Art Book add on was unlocked (update 76).
update 77 was the close of the KS at  $3.051M, and Reaper added the Sophie and Friends to the core anyway, even though the $3.1M goal had not been reached. 

Now, we can't assume that they'll do the same things at the same points this time, but I thought it would be helpful for people to see this. 

 

 

VERY helpful - I was trying to explain to some impatient backers several days ago about how it's normal for the middle part of the Kickstarter to be slow, but things really pick up toward the end, but I didn't really have solid examples I could give to show just how many stretch goals we actually start plowing through over the last 48 hours - your list is a great illustration of just how much of a difference those last two or three days really makes, compared to the doldrums in the middle!

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
