Welcome! As a fair warning, I think we all say things like, "set for life" after our first Bones Kickstarter. Doesn't stop us from backing the next one.

 

I have no idea what you're talking about, you're crazy. :mellow:

Finalized my pledge and decided to only do two ships; I feel like my self control is getting better in that my original pledge was $600 and never changed and then only just changed another $94 which includes the shipping. Sitting amongst my piles of Bones 1-4 and various other Kickstarters littering the floor of my bonus room helped me maintain my self control.

Now that more time as passed and we are nearing the end of the PM, I am wondering which things people are ordering duplicates of and why.

 

For instance, I see the most recent posts have duplicates of the disapproving hand, pirate ship, ballista, and catapult. Why not the trebuchet too? Also, why not other spell effects?

Well, I'm looking at doubles for the Overgourd, the wraith riders, Halloween Knight & All Hallow's Eve, and maybe a couple others.  Mostly they're things that I just really want to paint in different ways.

Most of my duplicates are for gaming purpose., Mostly so I can make 8-12 figure units.

                                                                                

1) Dark Depths Expansion x2  (So I can make units of the Merfolk, Slithe, Merrow, and Brine Goblins.  Things like the Jelly fish will be nice to deploy in pairs as well.)

 

2) Dungeon Dwellers Expansion  x2   (So I can make units of the Orcs, Goblins, Wolf Riders,  and Kobolds                                

 

3) Dwarf King Crypt X2  (Mainly for the pair of statues, and perhaps some of the other terrain bits, as well as a unit of Dwarves and Zombie Dwarves)

 

 4) Catapult  (Because I can see times where I would want two in a game) 

 

 

   While I'm not technically ordering two of any of these Extra Sets, I am ordering single extra sets to go with the ones that I'm already getting in the Core set. So technically I'm getting two of each set for unit building.

 

5) Catfolk  

6) Boulderkin

7) Zombies

8) Elves                                                   

     

 

And speaking of catapults, was anything ever said again about the possibility of them making crews to go with them?  I remember it was brought up very early in the post Kickstarter days...

I've ordered duplicates of each siege engine, and also the dwarf king's crypt, so I can field an extra statue and have more zombie dwarves. I'm also adding on the zombies set so I get duplicates of those.

I have duplicates of all the dragons, dragon bust, spell effects, the giant awesome spider, goroloth and the core set. There was so much stuff in the core set that I wanted more of for Pathfinder encounters that it worked out cheaper getting a second box. I couldn't decide what colour I wanted the dragons to be, so I figured one chromatic and one metallic for each dragon was the way to go.

 

Valfuryx- green and brass

Agansarax- black and bronze

Shauna - blue and copper

Iildreadis-white and silver

Kalanzar- red and gold

 

Oh, and since he's a shadow dragon....Krayteryx- solid inky and one transitioning from smoke to solid

As Chris Palmer stated, I’m mostly picking up stuff for my dnd gaming at this point. Three wraith riders wasn’t enough in the course pledge to satisfy my perceived need. I have the Halloween knight and All Hallows’ eve figs in Metal from ReaperCon so extra of those aren’t a need, for instance.

I doubled up on Petey, because I want to paint them up as concrete statues (one of them will be damaged) on either side of the entrance to a post-apocalyptic restaurant that will be the start of a "dungeon" for my players to explore. I doubled up on Brinewind because I think I'll enjoy painting everything in the set except the Sons of Barty and the critterfolk. I doubled up on the Brinewind extras because I fell hard for Brinewind and there are a lot of interesting and useful bits in it. I doubled up on Chronoscope because they put together a good Chronoscope collection for Bones 5 and should be encouraged to do more of that in the future, also, nightgaunts (Tickle, tickle). 

 

I'm considering doubling up on Gallowgard (because I think I might want to make a permanent display piece and definitely want one to use on the table), Krateryx (because my plans involve hollowing him out and shoving a light in his head, which may result in a need for a backup), and if the PM goes on too long maybe the core set (because it is chock full of so much good stuff)

 

I ordered one catapult and one balista. I don't think the trebuchet looks very good, I can't put my finger on why, but it doesn't work for me. I'm not trying to fill out a large army, so couldn't think of any justification to get multiple catapults or balistas.

I've gotten duplicate for either painting variations or gaming, and i always buy 2 sets of the new paints.  I dont currently play a character who uses the wall effects, but when I do I'll probably regret not getting more.

 

Extra Walls of Stone x2

Extra Walls of Thorns x2

Rune Wights x2

Extra Overgourd x2

Extra Halloween x2

New MSP Paint Colors x2

Disapproving Hand Spell Effect x2

No duplicate for me. There is so much other fun stuff the I could be getting instead of a duplicate (and I try to keep to a budget). But if I had the budget for duplicates it would probably be civilians, dragons or an expansion/encounter.

Have you done the tropical griffons yet? I'm curious to see them.

I normally don't do duplicates.

And when I do, I try to convert them to look different.

Didn't get dupes this time.

      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
