Probably my last order for this KS, as it's a big one. Also, probably my hobby budget for the next two months as well, ha ha. I wasn't sure if I was gonna be able to put a order in this month, but I really didn't want to not do it & then have to do anther "Oh crap I need this, this, this" before it closes next month or Sept(now?). Anyways here is today's damage:

I'll probably get the war machines next month. I was kinda on the fence with them but at the prices they are now, I'd be dumb not too. Other then that I think I may re-think the mouselings. I'm friend of Gene Van Horne & I'm a fan of his work but the smaller mouselings are where my loyalties lie, but I thought if I'm to give these guys a chance, why not KS price. We shall see. About the only other things I'm still looking are the townsfolk (thou I've got the first set from Wizkids(the one with the LED forge)) & I really don't use townsfolk all that much in my games. Again, KS prices. Also, maybe the busts but the 3 offered I'm not all that thrilled about, but I still like to see the bust succeed for future offerings.

I got the three busts for the same reason; I want to encourage Reaper to make more of them in Bones. I've never painted a bust before, I think it may be fun, but I'd rather not spend $40+ on a resin one to find out.

Same here as well.  Bones is an ideal medium for beginner busts for people who want to try out painting larger scale without being afraid of ruining a $50-$100 model.

I'm glad I have Dragon bust in resin, if it's in original Bones instead of Bones Black as Ron alluded to, I'd be disappointed when receiving it.

Sure hope it'll be in Bones Black, as I could have sworn that's what they were originally saying it was going to be.

 

Floppy regular bones would be a disappointment for something like that piece...

Was going to mention this as well.

Having painted several bonsium dragons and knowing where the pain points are in regular bones, that bust doesn't really seem to have any of them (Wings, ankles, etc).  I guess a lot of it depends on how the detial translates to the medium but for larger scale things without long thing areas it works pretty well. 

Black would be better of course, given that busts are very seldom of any game use and are mainly a thing for pushing your skills, but I don't see bones being that bad for it.....

Yah I do believe it was originally, one of Mal's heads. Julie swapped it for the current one.

 

I didn't get the Bones dragon bust, mainly cause I have the original one. I never got the lady bust in the 3 pack, when she was available at RCon ('18 I think) so at least I'd be getting all new busts. I currently have like 3 or 4 bust & one of those is the dwarf one from Reaper. Gotta love Hobbytown discontinued prices!!

Seconded.

And I didn't pledge for the busts, I don't like painting Elves that much, it would have been nice to have different races.

Maybe one Elf, a Succubus ( everybody wants Sophie, right?) and maybe a Human Town Guard.

Next time?

I'm hoping.  I like the one with the dragon but I'm hoping by buying several (And using them to teach some friends to paint) I can help encourage Reaper to make more.

Totally makes sense to have Sophie in a Reaper KS!! (her dice don't count!)

I do this often. I got a second set of villagers in Bones 4, and swapped heads and/or arms on the second set so that no two are identical. I got 2 sets of the dire critters, and gave one set drastically different bases and/or paint schemes, as well as with the wyverns, beast skeletons, griffons, etc. I hate identical duplicates, because it's easier to track multiple models in an encounter if there's some way to differentiate them.

 

Brilliant! I need to do this. I have multiple sets of villagers in metal and bones.

I think the issue is whether or not the Bones version will have the crisp detail that the resin does.  I know Reaper thinks Bones is just as good and their house painters can do a marvelous job with them, but I have handled some that look like they were cast in marshmallow and not plastic.

      Just throwing this out there for anyone interested (yes I did back and no, I don't know them)...
      I did back their last KS as well and was happy with the results. They did a great in keeping people up to date and got all of the files out quickly.
       
      The figures look "funny" in the pictures due to them using the print-ready 3D files. I think that at the smaller scales especially, they are enhanced just enough so they will keep their detail and make them easier to paint IMO.
       
      Anyway take a look if you are interested!

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.
