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

      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
