Help me understand.

Everything in this purple list comes with the $100 pledge right? It seems like a good deal. Has anyone ever bought their products?

Source: Kickstarter - Reaper Miniature Bones 2

>> No.27873413

The sculpts are good, not great, the cast quality is very good on big stuff, ok on bulky human sized, and kind of weak on the thin stuff.

The material is pretty squishy, but it bends back into shape without much fuss, and can take a beating without being destroyed.

The value is pretty great for what you get.

Pic related, a giantess from the first kickstarter.

>> No.27873484


Hmm, so, would you say its worth it? The sheer amount of minis for that price seems amazing.

Could you compare to GW plastics? Those are the only ones I've ever handled.

>> No.27874550

Different anon
They're a softer plastic. Pretty flexible. Supposedly they don't need to be primed, but it still works best if they are. From that big list of minis you have, you can get a good idea of how detailed they are.

Snakeman from the last one.

What is up with all of these number captchas?

>> No.27874843


Yes, especially since they'll almost certainly add more before they're done.

>> No.27875256 [DELETED] 

hm, is it just me or is Bones 2 a worse deal than Bones 1?

$100 instead of 50, you don't seem to get twice as much. Or is this my imagination?

granted the minis are of stuff I'd find more useful (easier to get lots of skaven, beastmen, skeletons, zombies, etc.) but nonetheless... double price value, not sure if that's as good of a deal

>> No.27875287 [DELETED] 

or was bones 1 $100 per vampire pack? actually yeah I think ti was $100/pack, disregard.

>> No.27875733

Last time, I bought 4x vampire sets. My wife is dutifully painting em, and they look great. I might get another 4x of these, then I'll really have an awesome bunch of packs of armies. I'll have 72 undead (16 mummies, 16 ghouls, 36 skeletons) in this one alone, which will make for a nice force.

>> No.27877068

150 figs for 100 buck is quantity vs quality.
If they end up adding 50 figures to core before it's all said and done I won't pull my pledge.
Right now, there's only about a 1/3 of the core figures that I find interesting. How many hero sets does one need?

That's Google using you to confirm addresses they scan while making Google Street View maps. It's vaguely creepy in a Big Brother sort of way.

They've revealed the next stuff in Expansion 2.

Sill no word on when the Core Set gets bigger, though...

>> No.27880011

Okay, let's break this down.

1. Pledge at least $1. You can order anything you like that's available. Just want a particular dragon? Pledge $15, chose the $1 option, and when pledge manage comes around say "I want this $15 dragon" and reaper will be all like "Cool, we'll take your pledge and give you the $15 dragon as a reward after we make it."

2. Pledge $100, Get the Core: Curretly sitting at 153 minis and 70-odd bases. Roughly 0.44 per piece, (or 0.65 per mini and the bases are all free, whatever)

3. Pick and chose your Additions: On the orange backgrounds you've got a buffet of choices ranging from $10 to $30. Pick which ones you like, increase your basic pledge by that amount (or TO that amount)

4. The Expansion Sets: Each one is $50.
>Currently, Set 1 is the only complete one (39 figures for $50, or $1.28 apiece for multiple large figures).
>Expansion set 2. is only up to 12 figures for $50 ($4.16 per figure, Fairly close to Bones retail on large figures)
>set 3 which is 10 figures for $50 ($5 per. Again, close to bones retail, and a damn good deal on that terrain.)

Well, there's no rule that says you can't paint them villanous colors and have them be bad guys. I agree more monsters would be more useful though.

God, I really hope this takes off. I'm not denying that Core is a GREAT deal, but dropping 100 bucks on a bunch of dudemen isn't something I'm 100% sure I can afford right now unless it's a mindblowing deal, and I'm not sure this will be /quite/ good enough to justify to myself just yet.

I want this, but I just don't know if it's worth blowing pretty much my only spare 100 bucks on as it stands.

Okay sweet!
Never used them before, but, uh, sure, why not?
>Tentacles and shadow demons

Okay, Reaper? hi, this is the gaming public.

We'd like, y'know a THEME or something to these?

I mean, seriously, i would have been cool with set 1 being all random stuff, 'cause random stuff is cool, we need more random stuff.

But set 2, you open with calvary and town guards, and now it's angels and tentacles? The fuck? C'mon, a little consistency please? I really want those dudemans on horseback, hell i want more dudemans on horseback. I want people riding velociraptors, people riding eagles, people riding unicorns pegasi and plain old regular ponies (cutie mark not required)... And instead i'm looking at... tentacles?

As for the third expansion set: It was modern terrain, awesome modern terrain. Well worth the cost, since a laser-cut dumpster, which looks like ass, will set you back $6.00. But now, you've gone and added zerg / aliens, so, it's Sci-Fi now... Don't jinx it. put some CAV units in there or a properly stompy robot or something.

>> No.27880234


I'm not backing out. But I am cautious in my optimisim. Last time the thing went berserk right at the end and the core exploded... until the gnomes came but whatever. I'm holding out to the end here.

Well, last Bones, the core had somewhere around 220 figures (not counting those tiny familiars) when it ended, and that INCLUDED translucent figures.
So if they want pledges to hand on at the end, they'll need to come at least close to that.

>> No.27880461

Yeah, unless we get another big-boost, we won't see that display piece they were teasing in the last video.

This. This so goddamn hard. I was really hoping Expansion 3 was going to be all terrain. It might have gotten fewer purchases but I think it would've been more honest in its sales numbers that way.

>> No.27880555

You mean 4 days.
Yeah, and that teaser display won't be part of core. Last core set had 5 large pieces in it, and we've already seen 5 big guys in this one.

I got a first wave slot so I'll wait until the very last day to see where they take us, but what else is there that could be added to core? A Sophie, fairies perhaps? Idk, but it would be awesome if Reaper added some clear/translucent figures to the core like last time.

Yes. Pledge $50, when pledge manager comes around, pick expansion #3. You're done.

Agreed. Even if those goals are far off, knowing what's coming will likely keep interest building.

By all means, please continue flinging insults from your position of perceived moral superiority. The day anybody on /tg/ has never bitched about a sequel or successor work is the day /tg/ collapses in fiery ruin.

Reaper II is great value for money. It has also been handled worse to date than the previous KS. Attempting to shut down discussion of this KS's flaws in comparison to its predecessor is misguided at best. Said flaws do not cease to exist simply because Reaper II still offers a large amount of minis for very cheap.

Being able to add-on the big dragons is a plus. But the expansion sets kinda suck since it's $50 for figures of varying quality. For a lot of them, you'd be better off buying singles off ebay.

The deal on paint, however, is pehnomenal.

They'll probably keep doing Bones runs until the end of time.

They're selling tons of individual Bones, but the high initial cost of producing Bones molds makes it hard to expand the line without a large influx of capital - thus the kickstarter takes the place of outside investors and ensures they won't be losing money making a mold for a poor selling Bones miniature.

The thing is the expansions are fine in principal, it makes sense as they were actually dangerously close to losing money on the last kickstarter. The biggest problem is the fact that they're not even showing the next step in both, therefore people don't know what they're pledging for and are less likely to chip in the $50 for what is less value and might not even have anything they want.

I really wish this was as good as last time, but this time around I might just do core + a bunch of paints. We're never going to make it to the boneyard.

It's a question of how much you want, and of what.

Because if they had a hundred more backers last time they would have had to take out a loan to actually pay for all the minis + shipping (I'm making up this number, but they were pretty close to net loss). Obviously they're going to do their best to avoid that this time.

The problem isn't' that they didn't make enough profit, it was that costs were exponentially rising due to way more backer than they expected. It's simply too risky to do the same thing because with the increased awareness they were pretty much guaranteed to lose money.

it's not even about more shit for core necessarily, i just think there should be paths.

Each xpack is its own, then core/addons. And I think core and addons should alternate. Trick cards should be sprinkled on top, not a replacement for actual goals. And the trick cards should sometimes be added to the xpacks. I'm in for expansion 1 but I wouldn't mind another little something to make me feel good about it.

Also they need to fucking finish 2 and 3 so if they havea 4 and 5 they can get those going. They obviously have the expansions set up so that if they finish it'll still be profitable so they may as well rush em out so we can decide. I'm eyeing the fence for 2 but I wouldn't say I'm even on it.

Bases are nice but they are a slap in the face if that's the only core goal. They should be an EXTRA on top of regular goals. We should be looking at a legitimate purple goal right now, as well as one for each xpack, and then, also, the bases which we've already earned- they shouldn't even be a 'goal' just a 'look what you earned and didnt even know it! yay!'

They could just as easily have you enter your country and province and calculate your shipping based on that. They don't need your goddamn phone number for it.

It's not about the spam. The calculator is missing the most basic functions that everyone who has taken any kind of compsci class knows to incorporate. It's cute that they use SSL to "protect" your info but that does pretty much nothing. The first "law" or rule of design is that everything you can do you must be able to undo it after.
