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:

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

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 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'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
