@R2ED I feel similarly. I got into bones when Bones 4 was late backing.

 

I first found them because my FLGS carried tons of them. Then I scooped up some old Bones 3 and 2 stuff from ebay. Finally backed the core on 4. Spent the next year regretting the the expansions I talked myself out of and tracking them down second hand. 

 

I went all out on this one.

I'm getting back into my painting groove after injury, even though our last in-person game was over a year ago. And I'm moving so I'll have to look for a new gaming group. I enjoy just painting what I want to paint instead of what is needed for the next game, but it's sad to just put them away in the "done" drawers instead of using them.

 

While I'm not sure if I'm going to back again, Bones have a really special place in my hobby-heart. Without them I'd be far away from having the repertoire of creatures to populate most of my games with miniatures. New lines of plastic miniatures might have been released since the start of the Bones line, but they still make the bulk of my collection and I like how good they're suited to build little groups and warbands of a large variety of creature types.

I’m wave 5 USA shipping; I did a $600 core pledge and then added like 4 more orders in the pledge manager bc i might as well have to wade through all my miniatures, ala Scrooge McDuck, in my bonus room. 
 

I have wayyyyyyy more than 20 miniatures. My goblin math is hobgoblin level.

I am in wave 1.  The Grow in the Dark ship probably doubles the size of my box.

 

Grow in the dark sounds terrifying for something already so large.

 

😄

In the interests of stirring enthusiasm I was thinking of sharing pics of the Bones 5 Core Set that I won on Reaper Live last week. It's due to arrive Wed.  What do you want to see first?  What should I paint first?  Will the box be big enough for the cat? Which cat will try it first? 

 

 

The box is always big enough for the cat. Reach into the box and pull something at random.

I don't even remember what wave I'm in. It'll come when it comes. Probably right during the height of canoeing season. Oh well, they keep. 

 

I'm going to paint the leucrotta first, simply because I like the Miniature Monday black panther and think it would look great on this mini.

We're in Canada, so the waves don't apply to us. For you and me, it'll be bundled up and shipped to the distribution center in Calgary (or Toronto for the Eastern folks), and then parceled out to the backers. Some of us are achingly close when they arrive.

I'm looking forward to getting pings about my city again, and maybe this time it might actually be my package! 

 

Also, if it's shipped to Calgary as distribution ohhhh yeah that's gonna be nice to get mine a day later..

Ah are they doing that again this time? Worked well for Bones IV.

      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.

      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.
