I had a dream last night that the ship got made and was everything I wanted it to be. I remembered that it had a lower level and opened it up. The lower deck was full of flumphs. This morning I was amused remembering it when it hit me: when I'm not using the ship I can cover the deck with painted minis and use the lower deck to store unpainted ones.

That's a great idea!  

 

It reminds me of those action figure or diecast vehicle carrying cases that would double as a play set as well. ::):

All Reaper needs to do is add hinges, and a convenient carrying handle. :lol:

Perhaps make a pluck foam insert to fit it?

WOOOHOOOO)! Happy Snoopy Dance! Snagged a Wave 1! I was caught in the KS meltdown on day one. After a half hour of trying to get a pledge to go through, I wound up in Wave 3. Bumped up to 2 earlier in the week, and just snagged Wave 1! Go Me, Go Me, Uh-huh.

Edited, just in case.

Few things from the stream...

 

They said the Chronoscope expansion (encounter?) should have cryo tanks.  They will be trying to get more chronoscope information available tomorrow.  There will be a chronoscope encounter.

 

 

There may be an art book made available, no real details and it sounded like that information was based on an offhand "yes" from Ron.  Not sure if they meant within the kickstarter or after (I assume after).

 

 

 

 

 

I'll buy anything with cryo tanks as long as dinosaurs aren't part of it.  Conflicted about the art book. We have some previous ones, and haven't really done anything with them, not sure we "need" another.

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.

 

 

It's still going to be a great deal in 2 years.  @ $1.53 per piece that's less than half the retail price per bottle of paint or figure.  Yes,  they already have a LTPK for folks who want to start now. but for people who just want to dip their toes in to THIS KS, it's a sweet package.   

 

I regret not getting the paint from B4.  I told myself at the time I didn't need new paint, but now I do.  Some of my RMS paint is ~15 years old.  The last of my Pro Paints have dried out. So I'm looking down the road at what the situation might be in another year or two as regards paints.  KS is  a good opportunity to have fresh paint delivered along with the figures.

And, now my long time lurking here has payed off. I picked up your dropped wave 2 slot!

That's not me again, is it?

 

 

If it's the pirate ship, that ad  is vintage from 1974.  It's not available for sale anywhere.

I would like to see an art book covering all 5 in one volume, perhaps with painted and unpainted versions of each mini. Call it "The (R)Evolution of Bones" (yes, Reaper you have my specific permission to use that title).

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go

      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):
