A Big ol' Pile of Them Bones!

Get in on Reaper's Bones Kickstarter Before it Ends!

The clock is ticking on a one-of-a-kind deal from Reaper Miniatures—one that any tabletop gamer is not going to want to miss!

Affordable and high quality miniatures from one of the best miniature companies in the biz? Nearly 10,000 backers have said "Yes please!" to one of the biggest game-related Kickstarter projects ever and stomped every stretch goal presented—and then some! Have no idea what I'm giddy about? Let me explain...no, there is too much. Let me sum up. Gamers love their miniatures, and they really like the Bones line of plastic miniatures released by Reaper Miniatures. But Reaper just can't produce them fast enough, and plastic molds are phenomenally more expensive than those old metal molds. So Reaper has turned to Kickstarter to raise the funds for a whole bunch of new plastic molds, and the initial response has been overwhelming!

How overwhelming? Reaper modestly proposed $30,000—enough for thirty new molds to double the available miniatures in the Bones line. Current funding has them at sixty times their goal, and you may ask yourself "Why should I kick my hard-earned gold pieces towards something that's already funded?" Because you're guaranteed to get not just one miniature, or two, or even twenty: we're talking hundreds of miniatures at the Vampire backer level! This is one heckuva opportunity to start your minis collection if you're a new gamer, or round out your collection if you've been gaming long enough to wear your d20 out into a sphere! Even better, Paizo's CEO Lisa Stevens has given her enthusiastic two thumbs up to the Kickstarter project, and now you'll get a chance to have our iconic heroes from the licensed Pathfinder Miniatures included in your backer level (along with a pile of our delightful Goblins)! All of the miniatures that you get are the same great sculpts that you'd expect from Reaper Miniatures, only easier on the wallet!

Check out all of the existing Bones miniatures right here at Paizo.com—and get ready to see a whole lot more of them with the Reaper Bones Kickstarter!

I don't care what anyone thinks! This is so worth it!

Its every patriotic American RPGer responsibility to join into this!

Anyone who doesn't pledge will rue this day for all eternity.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Ridiculously good offer on minis. Works out to less than 50 cents each and will keep going down as the rewards grow over the next couple days.

That's not to mention the approximately half-price paints, cases, etc. that are available as options.

Taldor

Right now at the 2,000,000 point, with the addition of the Grave Danger pack, but before the Storm Giants, you get 215 minis for the 100 dollar Vampire level backer reward.

215 minis for 100 bucks.

Keep in mind, they wont be shipping until March 2013.


I backed this a week ago, and I'm stupid excited about it. I was excited before but with each hour that it increases I only get more giddy. A little less than two days to go, I wonder how high it will get?

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I personally hope that Paizo and Reaper are encouraged to make more Pathfinder minis after this Kickstarter.

I'm still waiting for a goblin commando bones.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

At current rates, it looks like it might be an hour, maybe two if everyone goes to sleep, before that $100 will also get you 2 storm giants.

I think they've raised $120k in less than 5 hours. If that somehow keeps up, they'll get another million dollars.

Edit: And 37 minutes later, they've hit the next stretch goal. Giants for everyone!


PROTIP: You can, say, select Vampire level and pledge $300, and get 3x Vampire level.


PROTIP: The Vampire level includes a large metal figurine of Reaper's mascot Sophie... but if that isn't your cup of tea, you can exchange that for an extra $25 credit to spend on add-ons!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules Subscriber

Aaaaaaand... there goes another stretch goal. Next up: four more minis, these ones halflings/gnomes. All we need is another $180,000. I figure... by the time I wake up in the morning. <Grin>


Wow, this is quite amazing. I want to get in on this... too bad I had to pay tuition last week and am now broke.

Just don't eat for a week. Even if you're relatively fit, there's ALWAYS a bit of fat to burn! You'll enjoy a slimmer physique and STILL take advantage of this fantastic offer!

Remember, Reaper is supporting pledge changes even after the kickstarter ends. You can pledge one dollar now and adjust upwards when you have more money.

Presumably there is some kind of cut-off for the pledge adjustments, though. Have they stated what the deadline is? If the cutoff is within a week or two, it might not make a lot of difference to some people going through financial trouble at the moment.

Vampire Level is so obviously extremely worth it. I couldn't believe what a big bunch of really nice miniatures goes with it.

AAarrrrggg!

Thanks you evil Paizo people - now my wife will ban me from reading the Store Blog as well as the Paizo Blog!!

This is an absolute ridiculous deal. Sure I have to wait until next spring, but holy crap. If I JUST put in 110 dollars for vampire and the pathfinder red dragon, and was only considering the pathfinder specific minis, it would be a good price. 9 we be goblins + 11 iconics + 1 huge dragon for a $110 would be acceptable. I get almost 200 miniatures on top of that. I will be painting for months and I love it.

I had read about making the exchange and that paizo was going to have a manager portal at some point, but I don't see either option at this point. Are the exchanges only starting after the funding deadline? I'd also like to look at the paint and case offerings, but don't see that either....any chance you have links?

Reaper has said that once it is over, it is over. Reaper does not have to offer rewards for money after the KS has ended. That is at their discretion. Why take any chance? If you pledge a dollar, you are only guaranteed a dollar's reward.

I found out about this by Lisa and Erik talking about it during a seminar at Gen Con. I got in on it after getting home. At the time, it was at $1.3 million.

Now, it's at $2 million!!!!!!

Gamers love their minis!

I've been backing this since the beginning, very worth it. For those who haven't seen this line the plastic is a little softer than I was expecting, it's not the hard plastic you get from Privateer Press or Games Workshop, for example. I got a minotaur and two packs of kobolds, the quality is good with a few mold lines but nothing that detracts from the models. I highly recommend this line if you're looking to expand your mini range, as mentioned $100 gets you over 200 miniatures which is a great deal.


Darn it, after resisting for days I finally gave in. Lots of minis for me, a $100 dent in my checking account.

Gotta give them time to set up the interface.

When you contribute you select a reward level. Say, Vampire at $100.

So you pledge $100 and get a but-ton of happy, naked minis.

Now, as you look around you see the Fire Giant Warriors ($10) and decide you want them only, shucks, that isn't a rewards selection. Well just click "maqnage your pledge" and add $10 to your original $100.

But don't change the reward you chose originally! Keep it at Vampire.

So you should have Vampire selected as a reward and your pledge would be $110.

Shortly after the kickstarter ends Reaper will be sending out a pledge tool so that us plastic addicts can decide how to spend that extra money.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Wow... I just had a look out of interest without really intending to buy anything, but that's just jaw droppingly great value. I was just scrolling down and being continually amazed at all that was being produced for the various levels. It's really great to see something like this doing so very well, and I certainly can't resist pledging in.

Andoran

Come on, everyone, only another £20,076.00, and I get a plastic version of the metal figure I've been using for PF Society since Season 1!

I can convert him to sit on a mount, or just use him as a spare, for when I don't want to risk my paintjob.

If I don't have to worry about my mini overbalancing, or chipping, it frees me up to be climbing, levitating, flying all over the scenario, and I can give the GMs even more headaches than I already am!


Awesome kick starter, thanks paizo for allowing Pathfinder licensing.

Andoran

£12,329.00!

COME ON!

Andoran

£8,472.00!

OOOOOOHHHHH, YEEEEESSSSSS!
I CAN TASTE IT!

My wife and I backed it last night. We were going to for some time now, and just finally jumped in. Since then, I've been refreshing the page and watching the amount climb and climb.

The whole time, I've had a horribly geeky grin on my face watching as the number of minis we're getting continues to grow and grow.

Taldor

Four free golems for vampire pledgers is the next goal.

Yes, but I want my golems!!! :)

Increasing a pledge later doesn't help unlock anything. I'm hoping we can push a little bit more this last day to get those golems, but it started to level off yesterday.

So many people are getting in on this Kickstarter that I'm starting to wonder how many people will be left to buy the minis at normal price when this is all over.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Next goal 2.44M for four Golems.

Current count for Vampire is 221 minis for $100

But it does mean that someone who can only pledge one dollar today can add minis to his pledge later.

You will be able to increase your pledge when the Pledge Manager comes online for around 30 days.

11k people is a drop in the bucket as far as mini war gamers go.

I for one am at to much money in the kickstarter, but want more figures, just not in the bundles, I don't want to pledge 4 vampires for 4 bat swarm sets, so I will just buy 2 at retail (yes I am doing 2 vampire levels)


Matrixryu, I've got most of those minis in metal already, so I've been able to resist jumping in with both feet. The few I do want can be picked up later. I'm only in for $69, for a paint set, the orc set, and a case. I'll be picking up several giants, the griffon and owlbear, and the ginormous undead dragon later. Thus far, I'll still be ahead. But it is so very tempting to drop an additional $300 to get everything in March . . . .
