Looks like it might be too large, even for them. I don't know if the base size in game is going to change, but this bad boy would break it even if they went to 100 x 150mm.


Meh. We use models we think look cool and just go with appropriate base size, but I understand we’re probably in the minority.

I don't think the Mammoth is that big, it's surely smaller than a GW Stonehorn and a Stonehorn fits on a 50x100.

EDIT: Nevermind, just saw Sir Forscale next to it...

Yeah, it is a bit too big, but I will get one anyway!!!!

I just want the dread wolves and one of the scarecrows. If I put in a pledge of £1 now is that level of specific availability likely to come with the pledge manager based on previous Bones Kickstarters?

Any firm indication on what will be in the original bones material as opposed to Black in terms of the larger models? I'd ideally like to avoid getting any of the original, hydrophobic, sticky, garbage PVC of theirs, but I do Like the Mammoth, and would like to grab some of the wargamer-friendly pieces like the warmachines.

Still kind of underwhelmed by this Bones KS but I went ahead and pledged $1 just to get access to the add-ons. There's at least one or two of those I'd like.

The dragons are nice,but I've already got a bunch of unpainted Bones Dragons (including that huge not-Tiama figure) so I'm not interested in any more right now. I'd normally be up for Japanese or dinosaur miniatures, but combines they loose their appeal for me. At this point definitely pick up that Catobelpas(sp?). Not sure what else, though.

Well, you’d probably have to buy the scarecrows together, but the price would be about the same as buying one at retail. The past campaigns broke up the core pledge into groups based on their section title, so “Scarecrows” would be one option and “Dragon Wolf” would be another.

I was only briefly able to tune into Reaper Live yesterday, but it seemed like they were hinting at a Cthulhu themed add-on expansion coming up. That would make me pretty happy. The samurai dinosaurs look decent enough but don't really do it for me. Some more Lovecratfian minis (like the thing in the well they already have) would be more up my alley.

Wow... the first half dozen or more waves are already sold out despite the delivery being April 2021(!). Regardless, the prices are great and I can see why folks would want to pledge but it's not for me. I am intrigued to see what scifi stuff they may eventually add though.

Nothing wrong with waiting to see if they have what you want. I've been in Bones I-IV, and am also waiting. Reaper had an sf expansion set in previous KS, so keep watching. Myself, I'm looking for Gloomhaven proxies, particularly demons and uniques. 28 days to go!

Just note that the whole waves thing doesn't really work with Reaper, its more of a KS general policy setup.

Reaper does the whole fulfilment in one big go, staggering it by region and their plan is to try and do it so that people get their stuff around the same time. So that means they do Australia first and then whilst that stuff is on ship/plane they then get to other regions like the UK/EU and last USA (since their site is in the USA so that only has to go by domestic shipping). The waves help them sort things out at the back end, but otherwise once they start shipping a region it all comes out in one go. So generally you're talking a few weeks difference between waves which is simply the volume of orders being processed rather than any staggered wave release.

On the first day when the site was crashing and stalling due to the volume of use they actually said in their twitch that entering into later waves was a good way to get in without the site stalling (since no one was going for latter waves and everyone was going for the current lowest wave).

Also, Reaper may do some jiggering if a few specific add-ons are late. Frex, for Bones IV, the chicken hut was one of the late items, so they pulled these orders aside while fulfilling others. I forgot how this affected international shipments. Also, for the US, at least, they were doing one wave per day.

Still waiting...

Well, the daimyo expansion looks like a must-buy for me. I hope they also make some easterners who are human at some point.

Which of these guys are add-ons vs. the core set?

EDIT: Left and middle ones are add-ons.

I think I'm out, this time... Melty, blobby faces on human-sized Bones in previous KS just aren't as good as the detail in CMON releases, and CMON gets me a game too. Plus, pretty much nothing here says "buy me now". Not for $120. Not compared to Nolzur's.

Preview of the possibly upcoming Greek set add-on, but I already have Mythic Battles KS set (when are they gonna send me my free stat clips???



Reaper also posted some preview pics in their update (still no sign of sf) but this is the only important one.

The dragons and hydra look good. Also excited by the warmachines, Kings of war armies will be littered with those in years to come.

Hoping the core set is available piece meal in the pledge manager, I like the zombie giant but don't want the rest.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

Excited about this one. The core set is a good deal, the dragons are cool, and I like a lot of the add-ons. I'm in.

I’lol be selling or trading away my zombie giant, something to keep in mind if you can’t find a deal better than the cost of shipping me an envelope full of bits.

The core set will absolutely be available a la carte in the pledge manager, probably even before the campaign ends. They've always done that in the past.

There's actually been quite a bit of stuff previewed for this upcoming Greek expansion back at Reapercon.

Minotaurs, Cyclops, heroes and Giants (who could double as the Gods themselves) I can remember seeing photos of. Went ahead and posted them here for those not in the mood to search.

Taken from Reaper's forums where members posted a lot more photos of possible sneak peaks-

Oh wow! Some nice stuff there for the Greek myth expansion. Not sure that I need a GIANT Zeus, but still quite badass. This maybe my favorite bones KS yet! Fingers crossed that some new mini-taurs (as in the Bones 4 kind) make it in as well!

Still sticking out of this one, just got my household effects from Delhi and yeah, 15 years of "sure why not I might paint it someday" adds up.

But still, maybe when it hits retail.

I would be sorely tempted by a handful of that Greek stuff, but...in reality I'd only want a handful of minis...so I'd probably end up waiting till retail regardless of the discount.
