something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

Have you received that mail about the KS being about to finish? 

I thought It was supposed to arrive when we were 48h from the end, but I didn't receive anything... 

Are you already a backer? I think it only sends to people who haven't backed yet

I think they were among the famous "faceless" minis from Bones 1 whose faces didn't hold detail properly. They never made it to retail because of the quality issue so now that Bones Black is here, taking another crack at them seems logical.

All those for fixed behind the scenes in bones 1 or 2. Of you order them from the site now you’ll get the fixed figures, but they never took new pictures for them, so they look like the gimped versions.

I can't find the picture, but we've seen a preview of a piece of terrain with a pit full of bones and goop in the middle of it, right? I'm guessing that's the charnel pit.

I’ve watched enough dr who to know that Santa can fit in with any of those!

I wish we had better pictures of the ghoul encounter. Seems really grainy compared to the others pics we've been seeing.


Added another $12 for the sirens, though!

Most of what we are seeing are not pictures of actual prototypes, but computer renders.

If we reach the other 2 parts and they are as defined as this one, yeah I'm in.

The only way they can do that with sci-fi is either brand new sculpts or redoing ones that are already done in Bones. 

If it's brand new sculpts, I will probably be ecstatic. 

If it's redoing previous sculpts, it will either be several models I don't want/need because they're one offs OR it will be things I already have a ton of.

Oh, I know that, but the ghoul encounter looks like it was sculpted out of green stuff and not on a computer, but then photographed in grayscale to match the other pictures. I think pictures of the greens would look better.

Since the sculptors are Julie and Bob,you would be right. They don't do digital sculpting

Update 4:

It's 9:27pm, we're at $183K for the day, and just hit 17,745 backers!

Pledge volume is still holding at about $10K/hour.  It spiked up earlier in the evening to unlock the nereids a bit earlier than I thought, but has slowed a bit since.  I said I thought we'd hit 2.95M by midnight, but that looks like a stretch now.  If pledging holds at this rate on average, we'll end up closer to 2.85M.  We should still see more than $500K tomorrow.


Here are stats for all the Bones KSs:


  Pledged Backers $/Backer
Bones  $       3,429,235        17,744  $ 193.26
Bones II  $       3,169,610        14,964  $ 211.82
Bones III  $       2,730,365        13,465  $ 202.77
Bones IV  $       3,051,004        16,200  $ 188.33
Bones V  $       2,819,510        17,753  $ 158.82*


Bones V isn't really comparable though because it's only up until tonight - the night before the last day.  It looks like the pledged amount per backer is the lowest of any of the KS by a lot.


But what did the earlier KS look like on the last night?  Like this:


Day before last - totals    
Bones  $       2,671,039        14,108  $ 189.33
Bones II  $       2,578,883        14,183  $ 181.83
Bones III  $       2,149,579        12,225  $ 175.83
Bones IV  $       2,506,347        14,690

 $ 170.62


For each KS, pledge per backer increased significantly on the last day.  Bones (1) was different, but the others all increased by $18-$30 per backer on the last day.


Right now Bones V has more backers than any of those and there's tons of cool stuff that people will want.  That's why you see a huge jump in pledging on the last day.


Bottom line, I think it's almost certain that B5 will beat Bones I, III, and IV.  The question is whether it will pass Bones.  Bones had near the lowest pledge per backer, so I think it will.  V will have a lot more backers, and there's a lot of cool stuff to make people want to pledge more.


Oh, and I think we'll probably only get 1 more ding tonight, maybe - right around midnight or a bit later.  We might get another overnight, and then there should be a bunch tomorrow.


Here's the graphs from 40m ago when I started writing all this stuff:

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.


      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
