A future example is a NPC, that the players are gonna encounter. She is a tax collector that is forced into being the new leader for the town the PCs are in. Book, she suppose to have half-plate & a great-sword. Looking at my stash of minis that is a hard combo to find. 


the Bones V fan favorites female landsknect! Too bad she’s so far away. I know you aren’t looking for a mini, but Hasslefree also makes 2 versions of a female landsknect that matches that description. 
 

the world will be a better place when there is a bones female landsknect in every household...,

My world will be better when I can get a unit of 10-12 of them! ::):

 

Planning on doing some head swaps and arm and weapon repositioning to give a bit more variety to the group.

Does it seem like longer than usual for Kickstarter to be sending the backer info to Reaper?  I don't seem to remember waiting over 2 weeks before... more like a week to 10 days...

IMO, they can space it out if they like, maybe it will make the next section of waiting seem shorter...

I backed another Kickstarter that ended the day before Bones V ended. They got the information back last Friday (and it was a much smaller Kickstarter), so I imagine that Reaper may not yet have the information, or could be getting it soon(tm).  Plus on Reaper Live last week they said that after they do get the information that Kit has to work his magic before the pledge manager will go live for us.

Having worked with significantly smaller databases (as well as bigger ones, just in a different capacity), I can see it potentially taking a week or so for Kit to get all the data into the pledge manager and make sure it is working as expected, and even then I expect there to be a few issues that crop up after it goes live

 

So realistically I'd say 2 weeks after they get the data from Kickstarter before the PM opens would not be unreasonable.

Ok, I just checked; for Bones 4 the Kickstarter ended on September 2nd 2017 (Update 77), and the Pledge Manager opened on September 10th (Update 78). Eight days.   So remembering it going much more quickly in the past was correct.

I was enthused to see more pages of kickstarter feed to read through, only to find discussions on the history of GW and Dremel's. Could we do some more kickstarter fun in here? :p

 

What's the thing that you're looking most forward to for this KS?

 

I'm so glad to see Zombie Dwarfs, and the Elemental Scions will play a nice part in my ongoing campaign I think.

But those dragons.. these will be my first adult sized dragons, not counting Bones 4 Argent (plan to use him as a god).

Next up would be almost everything in the Fan Favorites expansion :p 

 

For my wife it will likely be the Yokai and the mouselings xD

Aside from the ship, I look forward the most to the Dark Depths, The Goroloth and Arakoth.

Also...I want to take that Lion Dragon, remove the wings and make a giant sabretooth from that.

I still need to look back over everything to remember what I'm excited about, cuz there's just so much! Townsfolk are still quite near the top of my list, though. 

 

Even though we have no need and no space for that ship, I really can't stop thinking about it. So many fun ways to paint it keep popping into my head! :lol:

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D

I'm definitely looking forward to the ship. I have never run a nautical campaign, but it looks like I'm going to have to do so at some point. It's a shame my campaign world doesn't really lend itself to a seafaring campaign in the same way as a world where the oceans are continuous...

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
