Crowdfunding Spotlight: Reaper Miniatures Bones II Kickstarter

2 Oct

Now this KS is the one I’ve been waiting for! Yes, it’s the second Reaper Miniatures Bones 2 campaign over on Kickstarter.

Having missed out on the last one, which believe me, I’m still kicking myself about. If you don’t know, Reaper Bones miniatures are a cheaper alternative to their usual metal lines, made up from the majority of their already existing figures, just made in a soft polymer type plastic. The first KS was to expand the initial releases from a handful, to many new bones figures. So successful was the last campaign, the second one was sure to come!

Now, with this new KS, they again want to bring out lots more new figures, both big and small, but need us to help fund this task! What do you get for helping support this campaign? Oh my friends….lots and lots and lots of bones minis!!

I was pretty gutted I never got in on the last one to be honest, cash flow and  stuff gets in the way sometimes, so I ducked out, but wished I hadn’t, and I imagine lots of others did too.

So for a $100 pledge what do you get I hear you ask again? Well, take a look at this, and this is just the start, as the stretch goals get passed, they will be adding more figures to the core set, plus you can purchase add ons too. You know the score, more they raise, more goodies for those who pledge at the $100 level.

Expect the core set to expand a fair bit, they aint even at $1 million yet (the last one hit nearly $3.5 Million!) just what exactly will be added will be revealed when the goals are reached, but no doubt everyone in on this will bag plenty of nice miniatures. Yes, and before I get someone saying “You only do 15mm” etc, indeed that is true, but me and my boy do play warhammer as well, and while I love 15mm, lots of the core set will get used as nice proxies for our forces, as well as make a start on some new ones. I’m also seeing us revisit dungeoneering in 28mm (Oh my lord, what am I doing…..)

By now your guessing that I’ve backed this KS, and that is true as well, me and my kid are splitting this between us, and even so I’m a bit unsure about where I’m going to get the cash to pay for my pledge, I know that we’ll be well rewarded for what we put in. Reaper have a solid record for delivering a KS of this scale, so I’m in no doubt they’ll end up sending me a lovely parcel when everything is sorted.

Seriously, if your interested in this great KS, you should get yourself in on it, I missed out last time (I really wanted Cthulhu, but he never calls!) and realise my mistake when I saw what was up for offer. I say go for it and pledge, if you don’t have the money, go and find it, sell a kidney/grandmother/etc to raise it, you have a few weeks (well, that’s my plan anyway!)
