Reaper Bones second Kickstarter

Another Reaper KICKSTARTER for more Bones figures.  There were some problems with the last one, and some of the figs were disappointing, but on the whole I was pretty satisfied and expect that they will have learned from the last one and choice of figs (less susceptible to weakness/bendiness) and quality control will be better this time.  But even if some figs need work, getting a bunch of huge figs for peanuts compared to metal prices makes it worthwhile for me.

A little different this time around - the regular $100 set which will keep getting add ons, a $50 expansion that will get add ons, and individual add ons.  For those that just want a few things without getting the giant set, they have an option where you can just plunk down $1 and then be eligible to get individual add ons - so if you just want a couple of dragons or demons, or a set of mouslings, there's a way to do that pretty easily without having to get the massive set.

Timeframes are a bit disappointing, with a year before rewards start rolling out.  I had hoped that their experience from last time would let them speed it up, but at least they're being realistic.  Maybe they'll under promise and over deliver on timeframes.

Check it out, reserve a spot, and watch it grow!


  1. Reasonable views. I am interested but I have done nothing with my first patch except look at them with the kids. I would also like some information about their plans to improve the quality so that all the models have noses. I am not concerned about occassional miscasts getting through but all the Cowgirls being aliens is a bit of a problem.

    1. Yep. Noseless cowgirl was disappointing. I have used a number of mine so far, but haven't gotten to fully painting any of them. I did wash a lot of them to color-code and bring them out a bit for short term use. Haven't gotten around to doing re-bends on any yet.
