Reaper is at it once again. They’re looking to expand their range of Bones miniatures and have taken to Kickstarter to do it. Like before, they’re offering a bucket of miniatures at a low cost, and they’ve already started making their way through several stretch goals, adding even more value to the main pledge level.

From the campaign:

Thanks to you, all of our Kickstarter projects have been amazing success! We’ve added over 500 new models to the Bones range, and we’ve discovered that these products are monstrously popular. You wanted more! More Monsters! More Demons! More Dragons! More Characters! More variety and more amazing new models!

You’re in luck! With our last Kickstarter projects we only scratched the surface. We have many more models that we think deserve to be added to Bones both new sculpts and classic favorites. We’d like to see if you think so, too!

Bones are still really expensive to produce, and we still need your help to expand the line. Your support makes the molds that we need to produce the figures, and in exchange you get the first crack at these figures for a fantastic deal!

As I mentioned, the campaign’s doing well. They’re more than 20x funded with still 31 days left to go.

    Hah- Gauth is part of the core batch this time. And they’ve got Dicelings and Minitaurs.

    It seems that the Reaper fellows feel that the Bones lineup has a good representation for ‘core’ elements (adventurers, monsters, terrain) and this kickstater will be going into some of the stranger things that Reaper likes to do.

    So- it is a big kickstarter, it raise over 600k on its first day, so that would make it finish at somewhere between 1800K and 2 million.

      Halfway there, and if the late bump is as big as the start bump, they’ll be well above 2 million.

      We’ll see how this goes, but I’m now thinking that tripling the starting bump will net me a low estimate.

      • odinsgrandson

        My prediction for this was VERY low this time.

        In the first 24 hours, this KS only did about 650k, leading me to predict that we’d see a finish a little under 2 million. However, the funding ended all the way up at 3 million (past Bones 3).

        I’m thinking that a lot of people started out thinking “dude, I have three KS worth of bones minis, what need have I for more?” Or, like Davos, figured that they had other avenues for cheap minis.

        But as it unfolded, it became clear that Reaper was trying to get some weirder stuff into Bones- a lot of stuff that you won’t see on every D&D table (like the prehistoric sets and the chibi stuff). These are not minis that are readily available from other cheap lines.

        I also may have mis-represented the initial jump- maybe the starting spike didn’t end after the first day (some KS have a longer initial spike- I think it has tot do with how well they get the word out at the very start).

    At one point I would have been all in, but in the years since Reaper Bones hit the market there are so many alternatives out there for cheap minis. The new unpainted lines that Wizkids released this year for Pathfinder and D&D minis are comparable in price and have much sharper detail. But there is a “Quantity has a quality all its own” angle that you could still rely on for the Bones KS.

    • I’m looking to see what sort of “super-huge mini” they have, like the Terrasque and Tiamat from previous campaigns. Those are the ones I’m mostly interested in, since those are harder to find out “in the wild” and certainly can’t be found at the same price as you can get in Bones (for example, my I Can’t Believe It’s Not Tiamat from the last Kickstarter was $60).

      I haven’t seen any of the Pathfinder ones in person, but the D&D ones were a big disappointment for me- especially compared against more recent bones stuff.
