Bones 6 Enthusiasm and Commentary

Here's a thought - from the KS comments thread:

Quote

The sets revealed are too specific to settings and have limited value in my opinion. 

Is it possible the flavor text for the various reveals is turning some people off to various sculpts/options?

Sort of like how we know some people won't buy a mini labeled sorcerer to use as a bard or cleric.

 

Are some people doing things like looking at the Fire Newts, and thinking "Well, I don't have the Caverns of Doom in my campaign so I can't use those"

Unfortunately for Reaper it’s a double edged sword. There also people who want to led by the hand, or don’t understand the idea of proxy figures, and if they want to play a Wizard, they will only search for something labeled “Wizard”. 
   Likewise with the detailed settings in the Kickstarter. Some people will look at the Owlbears and have no idea how to incorporate them in to their campaign. This gives the less-creative or less-experienced DM some ideas of how to use them.

I dreamt last night that they released another variant of the ant queen for people that don't buy the core. She was on a three inch base and was a cross between the ant queen and the queen from Aliens, with a horrible, slimy ovipositor wrapped around in front of her, halfway through laying an egg. I was very disappointed when I woke up.

 

@Guindyloo would be all over that in seconds. ::D:

I dunno. I'm not reading the itty-bitty flavor text and probably not the only one going by pics only.

The 30th anniversary dragon is the only thing I've pledged for (for better and worse...) this kickstarter.  I'm reassssssonably confident that Reaper will go ahead with it regardless whether the total is hit or not but on the remote chance they dont, what would that mean in my case, do I just cancel my pledge?  Really don't have any interest in anything that has actually been unlocked as of yet so I dont really have a desire to redirect the pledge to anything else...

I have a very high level of confidence the 30th Dragon will be offered, regardless of the overall total pledge amount. If not, though, get the paint sets. You'll be out by the time they're shipping...

I work exclusively with what's on sale 🤑 so have similar shades in different consistencies. What I've found out is that this isn't a bad thing, since you can use thicker paints for basecoating, thinner paints as color-matching thinner, etc. Craft paints are for terrain, but I tried filling a GW pot with red craft paint (the previous paint was red and dried out, of course), and, with thinner, didn't notice any change in my painting (advanced tabletop, mostly basecoat and wash for gaming rather than display). I've also found that some color primers work fine as basecoat. (Styrelrez or however it's spelled Ebony Skin is a very good brown to start with, Metal can be applied directly, and Neutral is a good khaki. Other colors I don't really recommend.) Only drawback is that I've bought so much paint that I don't think I really saved money. 🤪

 

Still waiting for more mini's in the core. CMON's prices are around 150 mini's for $100 + shipping, and this include some larger mini's and a game. Retail is also competitive for sets, though I never see bulk Reaper. Haven't missed Bones V. Still have plenty of mini's to paint from Bones I-IV, CMON's Massive Darkness and Zombicide: Black Plague, Archon, KDM, Mantic orcs and undead, etc. etc. Who remembers the Stephanie Law Dark Sword KS? 😄 

I don’t think CMON board game minis are comparable with Bones minis. The original Bones material was about the same standard as the CMON minis, but Bones Black is much higher quality in terms of the sharpness of detail, etc.


You also get a much wider variety of sculpts.

In the past anything that has been revealed has been unlocked for the pledge manager, whether the goal was reached or not.
