This is when I'm glad my DM is crazier than me. No WAY he's passing on that ship! So I get to play on it without having to buy it!

Yeah, $100 for the ship seems crazy cheap.
It would be stupidly easy for us to talk ourselves into three of them.

One for thePCs, one for the bad guys, and one ghostly....

But Megan has also said that I will be the one painting all of them.

But... I still want three ships... the bad guy ship would be the only truly redundant model.

The core set is probably the most meh they've ever offered but almost every theme set is amazing. I know I'll pick up most of them.

The $1 Buy In ends tomorrow at 5PM CST, if they are not sold out before then.

The $1 Buy In allows folks to pledge a buck - but still get the Kickstarter prices on the Pledge Manager.

So, anyone that thinks that they might want that pirate ship, but doesn't have the $100 ready, now is your last chance to be able to get it for a buck now and $99 later.

Ditto for the add ons and expansions - my wife was kind of 'Meh' until one of their most recent reveals.

The model that caught her eye, and fired her enthusiasm, among all the giants, dragons, and undead?

The halfling doxie. (The tiny tart, the wee wench, the half-pint harlot, the teapot trollop... we had a bit of a competition going....)

You joke - but that is exactly what my wife is doing for the halfling doxie mini.

They've also been known to add models to the pledge manager that don't appear in the KS.

This is the first Bones KS I've tracked, and it's insane how much stuff is in it...

I mean, the value is real here. For $147 I can have all the D&D figures I'd EVER need PLUS a new Chaos War Mammoth for my WHFB Chaos army. That's nuts.

My problem now is that if I back this, I will want more than that, and it doesn't matter because it would be worth it...

If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

This will be the first Bones campaign I don’t back, but I just can’t justify it. I’ll have to buy the coolest minis when they hit retail.

Truer words have never been spoken.

Though I think I've only bought 2 core sets ever (I and II). With how long production is on these it can be hard to really know what you'll be into/can use in 18-20 months when they deliver but thankfully you can add stuff in the pledge manager generally up to the last 2-3 months of production.

And a few go on to be dealers... If I sell off the weredinos, I can afford that cybernetic claw monster... *Hands start shaking*

I actually did that with Bones I and II - but when Bones III happened... I was married. We... argue who gets what minis. (It is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. )

The Inquisitor is always welcome to piggyback on my pledge.

I've been so good this time and all I've put in for is a core set.

That all changes when the pledge manager hits though.

Surprised there's been so few demons and giants this time around, but I guess since we got so many last time they're taking a break from them?

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Interestingly figure 808 is already in bones, I have one in my desk right now.

I wish they had lead with Chronoscape, rather than the lackluster Fantasy Japan/Greece/Sea (you choose which). Might have attracted more gamers to the party.

I hate steampunk, so it’s a good thing most of those are urban fantasy. Also, didn’t we already get a few of these sculpts in Bones?

For Reaper chronoscope stuff always sells less well than fantasy, so while there's some demand it's not surprising they don't make it the main focus

> Also, didn’t we already get a few of these sculpts in Bones?

Yep. The Steampunk Witch was miscast so didn't hit retail, iirc. I'm guessing these will be in Bones Black, so will have better detail.

Would have been nice to at least have a different version, unless they're just reusing previous molds. Or that these models had replaceable hands (ie. no weapon version).

Whatever. I'm interested in Steampunk / Western, and Modern / Horror. I guess part 3 will be sf. Hoping for no dino men!

Really bummed out that Brinewind expansion moved from being Undead Pirates to the regular kind as well. I guess it is kind of inevitable as Reaper stuff is made more for tabletop adventuring rather than army collecting. Looks like I will dump that expansion and go for something else.

So, other than the 3rd part of brinewind, and another dragon apparently, I ‘think’ there’s one more encounter set. We’ll see if they throw something wild in towards the end. Overall, my favorite bones KS by far.

I'd be pledging more as there are some great looking dragons in this, but Bonereapers have eaten up my budget; thankfully the Reaper Pledge Manager will be open for ages so I've got time to get the money in.

Even so they are well over $3million now so its not as if they are pained for money
