Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Bones V Kickstarter

The fifth Bones Kickstarter launched in the middle of this week, and it got off to a great start, pulling in over a million dollars in its first 24 hours.

If you’re new to Reaper’s Bones projects, the way this works is that there is a core set of miniatures, and then a lot of optional add-ons. The core set starts at around 60 models and gets bigger the more pledges are received. So the more people who pledge, the more models everyone receives in their core set pledge.

At the time of writing, the core set has over 100 models and looks like this:

The model I’m most interest in is this one from the add-ons:

Models in the Kickstarter, especially the core set, and typically available at an 80% discount to their retail price. These Kickstarters are a great way of kickstarting (see what I did there?) your miniatures collections or of adding a new block of models to your existing pile.

My history with these projects is that I have backed the odd-numbered ones. My only core set came from the first Bones project back in 2012, and it’s about two-thirds painted now. My current allowance lets me buy exactly three models this time around. A trio of war mammoths wouldn’t be a bad thing though….

Visit the Bones V project page to see how big the core set is now.

    The mammoth does look pretty cool, I agree. Took a look and over 1.5 million now!

      Yes, this is going to be a real test of my ‘8 to 1’ rule. I have an allowance of 5 and it’s looking like 2 mammoths, 2 ballistas, and one of the dragons will be my pledge for now.
