Completely agree.

I can't think of an any sort of use for it in any game, yet somehow I really want to paint one.

 

same, i'll have to get it at retail

 

i only wish the shark mouth was open, their mouths flop open without any muscle control to keep them shut when they're dead and hung like that

What examples from previous Bones projects were only sold as sets?

 

Dragons Don't Share 2... (Well, at least parts of it are only in the full set.)

Any others?

 

Like others I'm planning to get 2 Dwarf King's Crypt sets. Gotta have 2 of that dwarf statue. 

Well that’s just it. As far as I can recall, nothing from the previous Bones kickstarters has been presented as an “encounter” before, and there’s what, 4 of them on offer in this kickstarter?

 

I suppose it could be argued that Dragons Don’t Share and the Dwarf Kings Companions were presented as sets in their kickstarters.

 

DDS was sold as a set at retail, DKS was not. It’s pieces were only made available individually.

Does anybody know where i can see a video with the Deathrattle Ballista in it, not just the rendering?  Or at least the rendering with a size indicator of some kind?  I looked back at all the Bones 5 Live videos and saw no demos.  I pledged rather a pretty high amount compared to the average pledge (call it temporary insanity), and I am trying to decide how many ballista add-ons i would like.  Reaper has been good about showing most everything else, at least over time.  Friday's showing of the dragon Wolf rendering was promising.  Any info on the ballista would be appreciated.  The Catapult is too big for me to consider for my purposes but if the ballistas are much smaller, i might get 3 or 4.

All we have seen are the renders so far to the best of my knowledge. They are showing pics of the new stuff as it is printed and prototyped. And welcome to the place.

I have been figuring the wheels on all three siege artillery pieces are planned to be identical in size. If that helps?

 

But there is no particular reason to make them identical in size. The wheels do seem to be identical in design. But they could shrink or enlarge them to suit.

I'm thinking,  retail will probably be full sets or individual figures. Only way terrain is sold is full set.

 

I'll be getting a bunch of the encounters even with having Fat Dragon & other stl file terrain. Good stuff!

I suspect that the decision about whether to sell as individuals or sets will depend on how the pieces are set up in the mold(s). If they're all in one mold, they will almost certainly be sold as sets, since otherwise you're guaranteed to have one part sell better than the rest, leaving you with the extras of the lesser selling items that would be molded at the same time to build up in the warehouse.

I really wish I knew.

 

I would probably buy several, if it was sized to fit on a ~50mm base, but I suspect it is bigger than that.

If I get two of those, my hope is that I can cut the King off the top of the second sarcophagus and put a female dwarf on there. Just not sure which Bonesium female dwarf would work best based on the positioning.

I think the best choice in Reaper's catalogue is GWYDDIS, DWARF VALKYRIE

 

I think you may have found a winner.  Might have to reposition those arms though so they’re  in closer to the body

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
