I just upped to 250 when I went through the list with my wife last night. We're nearing $400,- as it is. I had promised myself I wouldn't order the same amount as in Bones 4...

But everything's just so.. pretty! o.o 

 

Of course you won't order the same amount.  That would be lame and silly.  You will just order MORE! See, promise kept. Easy peasy. :winkthumbs:

I'm sure many of us are in the same boat (it's $100, in case you didn't know!) as you so at least you have lots of company.  We did around 300 on B4, already at 1200 this time with all those goodies left to see.  Hang in there, it'll be worth it when that big box shows up!

1200!? jeebus xD haha, you're in for a good time when it lands :D 

 

Question btw! I've just joined in on the fun of this chat (I just couldn't find time for it!). but 457 pages is abit much to go through. are there any gems or extra pictures in here which I should try to find back?

I'm also going to use the yeti set for a jungle encounter. I will use the B4 apes along with the B5 yeti minis. I'll  just paint them appropriately. Just another species...

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.

Due to unforseen home problems, my son and I have painted few bones (from Bones 1, 2, 3 and 4) and have a stack that measures about 1.5 feet by 2 feet by 3 feet high(!!!) of bones waiting. And we are still in for this one..(can't have enough dragons, wyverns, drakes and wyrms) and can't wait for things to settle here to get on with existing figures.

Well my private inbox here is always open if you're looking to get rid of any of it.  ::D:

 

I'm really glad to hear you're doing this with your son.  I am also, mostly son and his sister joins in on the painting as well (she's killer with dragons!)  It's a really rewarding way to spend time with the kids I think so kudos to you!

Excellent!  Thanks for the feedback.  I'm sold on it now, after hearing from you guys.

Storage space.  Well, Ikea has some great display cabinets that you might convince your significant other to allow in the living space... if you're lucky.  LOL.  Storage for the unpainted is the age old "stashed in a box in the basement" concept which keeps most of us from getting kicked out.  ;)

 

That's entirely too much to go through if it were me.  Fortunately I've read the entire thread.  I really don't think you'll be missing much by skipping it and just starting reading what comes fast and furious the next few days.  If there's something specific you're in need of or a burning question you need answered, I'm sure someone would be glad to do so or at least point you to the proper place to look.  So relax and just enjoy the ride!

I think the hierarchy is :

In packaging, unassembled  (have not opened package yet, probably for resale)

< out of packaging, unassembled (opened packaging, checked for issues, first good look)

< o.o.p. assembled (basic assembly done)

< o.o.p, assembled, primed (cleaned, fills done, basecoat/priming done)

< o.o.p., assembled, tabletop basic (3 colors+ black)

< o.o.p, assembled, tabletop advanced (more than 3 colors+black, shading, highlights, finished base)

< Display level (you know it when you see it)

< competition level

 

Feel free to add or modify this, just my opinion.

 

Sadly, most of what I own is currently stage 3.

Welcome to the fun!!  For Bones 4, by the time the last box was shipped, we had blown through well over 1000 pages of Enthusiasm!   Best bet is try to catch up on reading the thread at least once daily.

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go
    • By Guindyloo
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kontraros/order-of-cthulhu
       
      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
