Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

$1.22 Million in 24 hours is a "respectable amount".

 

Thinking back to Bones 4, I never expected this much, this fast.

So far, B5 is ahead of every other Bones KS at this point of the game. 

Well ahead of Bones 4, and just barely ahead of Bones 2.   I expect that it will continue to pull ahead of B2 as the day progresses.

I'm happy for Reaper, though the amount of pledges surprises me a bit. I have not yet seen that many things that I really want (guess 1000s of Kickstarter minis from different companies will make you jaded ... though dragonmen and catfolk are definitely calling my name). Maybe a lot of new people who don't have a stash as big as mine and want a "basic" foundation for the mini collection?

One thing to note is that Kickstarter funding patterns have changed this year.  Many of the bigger Kickstarters have smaller finishing surges relative to their initial surges.

That's not to say that Bones 5 won't finish higher than all previous Bones campaigns, but the medium isn't as predictable as in years past.

Or possibly word has gotten around that Bones has improved in quality (with Bones 4 and Bones Black).

 Even though we have started really strong, I still think around $3.5 million is going to be the final number. Maybe close to 4

I think that folks are getting weary of investing heavily in new/questionable companies on KS. That is why you see such a strong support here. Even though there were delays on B4 they did keep us up to date on what was going on. AND them they delivered! Look at Catalyst Games Battletech KS, it smashed their expectations, even though their previous KS had delivery problems due to their shipping company. They changed companies and are keeping buyers up to date.

People are leery of some companies because of past issues.

Oh, I don't worry about the finish pattern when they drop the pirate ship / Asian ship during the last 48 hours ;)

 

i still wonder, if they showed something big on the map - something special - a crazy show piece model (like a ship, a giant monster, a special type of reaper model like a special sophie, etc) would that help cause a larger increase during lulls.   

 

Like if ppl knew, that 5 steps on that map from now, is an asian ship , would people now add 25-50 to their pledge now?

Wow so not keeping up. I wish pictures would get moved to the first page. Pretty much everything in the early morning update is gone already- there'll need to be more soon it seems.

Now to scroll 5 more pages.

So far not feeling the Daimyo expansion. The dinos in pt1 just do nothing for me. I would never be able to use them and would have to store or sell, both of which are a hassle.

Thing in the well if it's gettable separately will be mine.

Hopefully someone posts pics of the toolbox video. I am not able to watch video, and I'm curious what the never before shown mini will be.

I wonder if they'll get the pics updated before we hit the next goal. I kinda doubt it. <_<  Hopefully they're have the next update, with the next set of graphics ready to go.

The Catobelpas, i believe, is supposed to be in that size range, so its perfect :)  no issues with it.

Too small.  The Catoblepas in D&D 3rd edition is Huge.

Also, i do need epic golems, etc (ie. Iron Colossus from 3E Epic Level Handbook) . Stuff like that; and one of my players shape changes and is normally in Titan form, hence i want a true titan model :) :) 

Just an FYI, but the WizKids prepainted miniatures released two versions of a Huge Titan mini 18 months ago in Monster Menagerie 3.  I have both, and they are pretty decent.  They actually go for fairly cheap on the secondary market (~$5 last I saw).  It's called an Empyrean in the set (the 5e name for them).

That was 2 editions and almost 2 decades ago...

You have your needs.  I have mine.

 

Besides, StarFyre was discussing 3rd edition, and how bigger is better.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
