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:

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.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
