Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I have really been on the fence with if I want to add more or not on this kickstarter. Still a little disappointed with some of the drooping models from the last one.  But I know I will have regrets...

 

So fare I have

* Pirate Ship

* Shadows of Ravenhome

* Demonic Temptation

* Hench Women

* Extra Halloween

* Charnal Pit of the Ghoul Queen (just added today)

 

Still have these on my wish list (i guess it should be my maybe list)

* Dark Depths expansion

* Brinewind Expansion

* Kid Heroes

* Shavynra the Slayer

* Brinewind extras

 

So $155.00 + $4.63 shipping

 

I decided no on the Sirens because they are translucent...

I know alot of this KS will be in Bones Black. I'm trying to get a List of what will be bones black and other materials. I know people are asking about what things will be made of. :) I'm trying to get the go ahead and make sure things are final first.

Wait, seriously? Why would they do that, and why wasn't such info in a Kickstarter post/update?

I was in doubt about them, decided not to, so if they're translucent, I'm happy with my decision.

Bones update #66 -

Well then, guess that takes them off of my list.  Pity, they're great looking sculpts, and one of the few female sculpts that made it onto my short list (I don't really enjoy painting minis of women), but I'm not a fan of translucent casts. 

 

Glad to see the info is finally mentioned in the pledge manager, since this info was not there originally.

Yeah, ok. Glad I didnt mis-remember. :) In the pledge manager it also states it in the description. 

 

This Bones 5 Option Reward features five sirens on a sculpted water-texture base that will be injected in a translucent blue color. Limit 10 Song of the Sirens Options per pledge. Sculpted by Christine Van Patten.

Why not?

 

Most of us (I think) prime before we get to painting anyway, so it's just a matter of how carefully you prime.

It seems like every update is later than the last. I come into update day excited. It ends up just being frustrating lately. It seems to me that they've lost sight of the core of communicating with us in the pursuit of various vanity projects in other media.

 

and...

As soon as I posted they uploaded the update. Two identical pictures, but at least it's of cool figures. Brinewind looks supercool, but it always did. The catfolk on the right seems to have on very uncomfortable boots, after looking at her companion's feet. They both have really sweet hats, though.

I'm glad the Sirens will be translucent (and they always were denoted that way).  I plan to paint them up as Nerieds, keeping them mostly translucent so they look as though they are made from water.

I actually ordered two of this set, as I'll paint the second up as opaque humanoids to serve as sirens.

 

I know there's someone in the last kickstarter who got two copies of the Stygian Barge, so he would get two copies of the translucent "souls."  He painted one set up as spirits, remaining largely transparent, and the other set he painted up as regular humans, representing the same souls before death.  The paint jobs were quite well done, and you couldn't tell the models were themselves translucent plastic.

I read that as the base was translucent, but if it's the entire mini, eh. I'm leaning towards not adding that one in due to that.

ummm...Oh nevermind, that poor horse is all black and blue...nothing to see here:)

 

As for the sirens, I personally think it is awesome they are translucent (I may need two now). Hmm, were can I get the maximum coverage on a tea light:) And if you want a regular mini, just use badger stynlrez with your NEW Reaping Badger airbrush.

      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
