Well the new Bones addon looks to be Undead Pirates, which makes it a must-buy for me. Was going to go for Dungeon Dwellers, but this is far more useful.

I can only imagine how I will fare when the Pirate Ship is released...

Ok, I'll have to paw through the PM once it's done and see how it shakes out. So far the Storm Giant is the only "I'm buying that and I'll figure out why later" item.

I'm kind of in the same boat. While I like some of the individual figures a lot, they are all in sets I'm not that interested in as a whole. I'm probably just going to pledge for the individual add ons I want, and wait for the pledge manager to see if I can get the other figures I want, without too many figures i know I'll never paint.

This is the first Bones KS I'm not pledging $200-300 out of the gate. It's just not wowing me like previous KS did.

Yeah, same for me -- there probably is stuff I want here but I really don't need another core set of "maybe I will need this someday" minis. Got two of those from previous Boneses!

I don't even need the undead giant because I have one from Zombicide Green Horde...

I’ve never done a Bones KS, and there’s so much going on it’s overwhelming.
I shall read the rest of this thread to glean info, but a few questions..

UK postage, any rough ideas? I will get to the PM which I think might have more info on it, is it based on how much ends in the box? (So if all I did was Core, is it set, or fluctuating?)

Then there are various things. Core Set. Add-Ons. 3 Expansions (Samueai, Greekish, something else).

Now to me how it looks is it is only Add-ONS you can buy individually. Everything else is the packaged price, 120, then 50 for any given expansion.
Are they still adding to core even today?
But expansions 1 & 2 are complete, and they are working through the second and third parts of 3 to unlock it all.
Or will items still get added to all the 50 dollar sets as time goes on?

This sum it up correctly? Minus the few gaps I’ve fielded questions about?
Thanks for any regular Bones Ks’ers who can help.

At the moment you can only get the full main pledge, and each add on,

however during the pledge manager period after the KS in previous reaper projects you've been able to get smaller sets of minis

cant help on shipping other than to say the early ones came from the USA so got hit by customs charges, but they've now got a UK based prescence so that my be different nowe

Ok well thTs useful none the less, hopefully someone else can weigh in and add to the info.

So now they are on the Underwater expansion, the others are finished now?
Or will they add to Greek still perhaps?
I think from my reading, yes Core Set is still getting things..
(And the backer number and social media exclusives etc)

Core set might well still expand. The factions which are already 3 parts won't expand while those at less parts will so theres 2 expansions for the 2 sea expansions 1 for the greek expansion but none for the samurai and dungeon expansions.

Second part of the Dark Depths looks great! Glad to see the Fathom Tyrant pop up already. Hopefully that'll mean there's something REALLY scary/cool in part 3. I love that there are lots more sea creatures added. Especially those Brine Goblins! They look great!

I'm not much of a fantasy gamer or collector but that Gallowgard diorama and the Greek Odyssey expansion are potentially turning my 'want to paint' propellers.

Or skeleton pirates......

I am hoping the Sons of Barty are a specific option in the pledge manager.. else I will try to get them retail.. They are drowned pirates yes, but they could ALSO be Grandfather Nurgle children..

Good observation!

Unfortunately, if its in an Expansion, it won't be sold as a subset in the PM. You'll have to wait until retail (ugh -- long wait).

Pirate ship is revealing on Monday.
Whether that is the point in the stretch goal queue it will be, or if it is becoming an auto add on. Currently unknown.
But we will get pictures and a price

I was surprised to see that low of a price. The Wizkids one is what? $250? Granted that's painted but still.

It looks from the pic that the pirate ship will be multi-deck, so you can lift off each deck to get to the one underneath.

This is absolutely what I want from pirate ship terrain BUT only if it isn't bendy, if each deck can be removed easily without stress or damage to the kit, and if it will also lock together reasonably well as needed. I guess Reaper can do that with the grey Bones terrain material they used in #3, and presumably #4? But can they do it at that scale?

That's the $100 question, isn't it?

Do I trust Reaper and the sometimes slightly bendy Bones Material?

I'd love to get this ship for terrain, but...

I mean you might *want* a bit of flex to avoid damage when you're disassembling it deck by deck, but if it's as flexible as the Dragons Don't Share terrain it will look like Salvador Dali's melting pirate ship.

As are many things discussed here.

But things there are hard to find at times, and many times someone here will know the answer, or find it out, and post it here.

I got the barge last time, it was in regular bones material but didn’t have any bend to it and came in multiple sections. I wouldn’t worry too much about the main body of the ship being bendy.

Yeah it was mentioned in the comments in reply that it shouldn’t have a load of bend to it I believe.

Those move quickly, so if you miss something it is possibly gone for good..

Man, I feel simultaneously crazy for wanting to buy that massive ship that I realistically just will probably never use, as well as being crazy for passing it up at a hundred dollar price point.
I think the wallet will ultimately win, and I'll manage to pass at that price... And then spend two years scouring eBay for it at a price less than $200, two years from now.
