I will keep that in mind - I did notice some people mentioning it was Canada-friendly, but I will admit, international shipping for a box that size is not cheap over here, and I know shipping your flatrate boxes to Canada can get expensive too (I once was forced to get very creative getting a lot of comics from Boston to Vancouver.) But who knows what'll be the case by the time I have spare minis?

 

I was also considering two of Deep Depths. Very excited for Part 3 reveal today, I think that'll be more of a deciding factor.

There are a couple folks here who live close to the border. Occasionally the box walks across.

Thank you for the welcome! First post and first time I'm getting in on the Kickstarter. Even though I eyed the past two from afar, I wasn't painting yet when they were happening... It was tempting, and now that I've started painting, I regret not having the Dreadmere figures I was so in love with last time.

All I need now is something to bridge the next year-and-a-half...

 

I am in a somewhat similar boat. Looked some at Bones 3 because one of my GMs was backing it, but didn't have the interest at the time. I became significantly more interested by Bones 4 and backed fairly substantially, despite having never painted before in my life... Luckily I took to it pretty nicely after ordering the two Learn to Paint kits. If you haven't started those yet, that is a pretty good place to begin.

Glad you could join in on the Kickstarter this time. They really are a lot of fun!  Be sure to try and witness the last 48 hours of you can. It will be wild!

Here is your day 29 and a half-ish update.

 

Yesterday saw good growth and the best total since day 8.

Late backers are starting to come in now.

Gap in dollars to Bones 4 has diminished, but we are still on track to do very well. The day 30 graph is a bit misleading since we have more to come today.

I have, I have - started this year off painting. I still haven't done the Owlbear mini that I got for free, though maybe it should be up next. I was afraid of messing it up because I liked the sculpt so much - but now I know I can get another one as part of Dungeon Dwellers...

Some, if not most of Dreadmere is available now in the Reaper store...

 

And Maggotcrown Ogre will be the bonus mini for Nov....

 

Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

Don't be to afraid of messing up to badly. If you really don't like a paintjob, just bathe the mini in Simple Green for a day or so, then scrub it and most of the paint should come right off. I've had to do this for a couple of minis myself and it worked like a charm.

I have a question. I've backed this one and I backed Bones 4 but I never found out where to get the images for the signature indicating being a backer. Where are they/how do I do that?

 

 

They were posted early on in this thread.  Give me a moment and I will see if I can track them down.  

 

Edit: Found them! https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88670-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/&do=findComment&comment=1878206

 

Once you have them, save the one you like to your computer. Then click on your profile in the upper right of the top of page.  Then click count Settings.  Then click Signature.   There you can add links and a photo to your signature.

Also, “messing up” is just part of learning. It’s fun to keep your early figures and compare them later on. See how far you’ve come :winkthumbs:

It was only a lighthearted acknowledgement of feedback; it was not a hard commitment to create and add some kind of Cryo Tank Terrain item to anything. 

Thanks for clarifying that - I had to step out of the room and came back in to the end of that, and wasn't sure what had happened.   Then I saw people talking about Cryo Tanks in the Chronoscope expansion last night, and wondered what I missed.

I'll keep this in mind - I'm near Vancouver, so the possibly of the box not even touching Canada Post is certainly an option. 

 

There are also places at the border to get a post office box, or that hold packages for a while. Can get items delivered there. **waves from Vancouver**

 

I'm debating having mine sent to my mother in Oregon, who would road trip up with the loot. Maybe... maybe not. Can decide later.

      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):
