What do you guys and gals think about using the Mandupar Pass with the Bones 4 Gorillas?  I just finished painting our two cores worth of Gorillas and am wondering if it's worth picking up this encounter.  Can't decide if those Yeti would look appropriate alongside the B4 Gorillas.  Would appreciate any thoughts.

 

 

I think it would work great with the B4 Gorillas instead of the Yetis.  I'm not so sure about combining the Yetis and Gorillas in the same scene...

 

I think the terrain pieces would make a great jungle monkey temple with gorillas guarding it.

That's a great point, thanks. 

 

The yeti are "sorta kinda" close enough to be a cousin (different species) of the gorillas.  Was thinking something similar to the way there were similar but different primates in Planet of the Apes.  Gorillas, Orangutans, Monkeys, etc.  They would likely not end up "yeti" in this usage I suppose, but a species more similar to the great apes we have from the prior KS.

For those who missed it, someone brought up what the rear of the Yeti temple looked like:

Slightly detailed. Texture, craggy, a nook chipped out where an ancient statue may have been.

 

 

Not an overly detailed description but it's something at least.  I'm glad to hear it's not a flat surface.  Wish we had pics!

That Learn to Paint Kit would have been great if it'd ship sooner than the rest of the KS, or if they would release something similar in the store with Bones 4 minis instead of 5 as a "while you wait" measure.

Folk have always recommended the LTPKs for people asking in the KS comments what they should do until their pledges arrive. Quite a few people seem to be getting into the hobby with those Bones KSs since it helps to get a lot your roleplaying needs met rather quickly. Those people are probably the ones most in need of a LTPK, but those are also the people who don't have tons of backlog already and want something to learn and paint now. Atleast that was how I was feeling last KS.

 

Also, the miniatures in the LTPK aren't unique (thank Tymora) but from what I can see from the Core and Dungeon Dweller sets. With so many characters in those I don't see the need to have doubles of those figures.

Couldn't agree more.  Shipping these earlier would be a great boon for many - including Reaper themselves (and thus, those addicts among us who gain when Reaper benefits).

I agree with this.   Even a ships early option would have been better; get it to folks 8-12 months before the actual KS delivers.    It really seems a wasted opportunity.

That's what I expected to see when I heard it was getting it's own pledge option. Weirdly, the 40-buck option didn't seem to mention the ltpk at all.

Or another method, perhaps release it to retail and allow KS backers a coupon to pay KS pricing but get it from a FLGS or via Reaper site.  Tons of ways they could do this that would be better than putting off potential new collectors for a year or two.

Awe inspiring detail there, thanks for sharing it.  Are there other images on his FB page?  I'm leaning more and more toward adding this.

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.
