Sorry for the ramble but mini are so inspirational for me. Each Kickstarter is a storybook waiting to be open.

When the end of the kickstarter was nearing, I found myself paring away some pledges so that I could add a couple of the expansions. I held myself to a limit and was pretty proud of myself, until they revealed the Fan Favorites expansion. I checked it and thought that it would be great to add on in the pledge manager after the Kickstarter..............and then I saw the Buglips figure. Instant click and add on, and I went way over budget due to shipping costs.  It cost me some money, but I couldn't not get it because my friend has been immortalized.

 

I am a poorer man for knowing @buglips*the*goblin, but I am rich in stank (which is the goblin word for 'friend'. I guess that makes Buglips VERY friendly).

This made me think of that scene in Iron Man where Stan Lee shows up with a package for Tony Stank! Now we know @buglips*the*goblin secret identity!

No, she was going to be separate, so those aren't an issue.  The issue I had was the ropes I was going to have holding her onto the beam.  They would have to both be a part of her and a part of the beam; where to I put the break in the rope so it matches and models up well.  Very hard to do right.

 

I'm not certain we'll do the plaque either, I mean the beam is a big plaque.  could just put nail head in behind the beam to make it look like shes fastened from behind.  That said, the plaque does add something, but it would then HAVE to be molded as a part of the beam (mostly from a molding cost perspective; every part added adds cost to the molds and later to the end product), and I think that defeats the purpose you are looking for.  I need more thought on it.

Yup, if you wrap the ropes completely around the beam, then model the ones on the mermaid, it leaves modelers an option that is easy to do. Simply add ropes to a sign, shark, goblin, etc...

Looking at the comments on KS and MAN, there are a LOT of people who can't be bothered to read!  How does the PM work?  Can I increase my pledge?  Same basic questions over and over again.  Going and looking at FAQ is too hard?  Crikey, you just have to scroll down two questions to see the answer to the person who asked basically the same thing!!  Then there's the "How long is the PM open", which is answered on the front page of the campaign.  Yeesh...  Glad I'm not the one responsible for having to answer them all (politely).  :grr::blink:

My pledge was definitely low-ball - just the core @ $120 - while my "wish list" is over $800 right now. I'll make it up a bit at a time while the manager is open, spreading out the hobby money to keep it affordable.

 

Nice to see you stop by!!  ::D:

i guess i see bones a bit different (and not really what their goal is).

 

I want a bunch of their versions of D&D monsters that others have not made yet and if they are cheaper, so be it.

I hope you are all happy. Spent the last 30 minutes whipping up another tortle on heroforge to go with the spikeshell antipaladin. It's either customs or wait 2 years for Bones 6, hope I can persuade them to make turtlefolk adventures party and wait another 2 years after that for the minis...

so you can offload the mammoth from the ship, with siege weapons attached to it, as you assault the ruins of ravenhome?

For those wanting the "Balding Rogue" he is a Dark Heaven metal release already. He's been out for quite awhile now. I know "evil" metal but he's there if you want him now.

I haven't decided what I want but I think I'll probably go with a Core set this time around, it's been awhile (B1) but I'll weigh what looks good for me now as this is the first Bones KS that occurred while running games at the local game store. Others have just been "oooo this is cool, I'll buy this". 

 

Expansions, I'll probably get more then B4 this time around. I picked up 2 from that one. Couple of them are a must (Greek, Brinewind), some are a ehhhh (Damiyo, Dino-people are a major turn-off for me) & I don't need it due to have most of it in metal already (Dungeon Dweller). 

 

Encounters, these will most likely be all of them. I like the idea & all of them will be neat to have.

 

Ship, this one I'm not sure. I'm getting the Unpainted version of the Falling Star from the local shop already, so do I really want 2 ships? (I guess good for s2s combats). Still like Mal, it's one thing I probably won't get when it comes to retail due to price, so buying it during pledge period is important.

 

Overall, lots of very nice minis came out of this KS. I was happy with the overall route of the KS.

I would like to see this as well, however I think that some of the reluctance has to do with violating WotC IP.

In Twitch just now it sounds like the plan is to have more than one option for the ship so that is good news! Not sure if it will be Solid and Translucent Green or Solid and Translucent Clear or possibly all three, but with what Jon said it sounds like it wont be just the one :)

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
