Reaper's Bones KickStarter is a project to ramp up the production of the Bones line and get you the game models you want now!
Reaper's Bones KickStarter is a project to ramp up the production of the Bones line and get you the game models you want now!
17,744 backers pledged $3,429,235 to help bring this project to life.

Leaping Lizards!!! $930,000 Stretch Goal Achieved!

Remember everyone: You will need to add the pledge amount for the extra Options you want to your pledged Dollar amount by clicking the "Manage your Pledge" button.  After the Kickstarter is over we will send out a survey in which you tell us which Options you want the funding applied to.  You MUST pledge enough funds to cover the Level and Options you want before the kickstarter Ends!

One of the strengths of the Pathfinder Miniatures line is the creative, evocative character designs. Their Iconic characters, representations of the class in the game, really stand out as not just illustrations, but living characters of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting of Golarion. To that end, we introduce here 7 Pathfinder Iconics for the Pathfinder Bones miniatures line. With this goal, you will get Seelah, Damiel, Merisiel, Feiya, Valeros, Amiri, and Seoni! These 7 miniatures will now be automatically included in your Vampire or Undertaker Level pledge.

Our last big Pathfinder monster was the Iconic Red Dragon from the front cover of the Core Rulebook. The only way to outdo that is with the Iconic Jabberwock from Bestiary 2! To get one of these, simply increase your Vampire or Undertaker Level pledge by $10.

It's Pirates! Five pirate models, perfect as either Characters or enemies, will be added to your Vampire or Undertaker level Pledge if we meet this goal!

And then there's this pack of Sea Monsters. 2 Tiik Warriors, a new Tiik Champion (concept art by Talin), the Beast of Blood Reef, and the dire Sea Lion, all ready to terrorize your ship-bound players. Remember the rules for drowning? What about swinging swords while submerged? Well, be ready, because you're going to need them!

This is the one you've been waiting for! We present to you Nethyrmaul the Undying! This enormous undead Dragon can be yours simply by increasing your vampire or Undertaker Level pledge by $25. Concept art by Wayne Reynolds.

And what Dragon would be complete without a Treasure Hoard? These items of Dungeon Dressing will be added to your Vampire or Undertaker Level pledge when we meet this stretch goal!

NOTE: We're about to begin having only one active revealed tomb at a time. It has been really exciting offering up 2 tombs at once, but as we get closer to the final day, we want to be sure that we're focused and ready. To that end, on Wednesday, we'll start showing only one tomb/goal at a time.

Hold on to your hats, Boneheads, we're far from the end, and moving faster than ever!

Whether you’re into Wargames, Boardgames, or RPG's, we've got you covered! But now we need to make sure that everybody knows about us!

      @ B. L. Zeebub: That $4 mil figure has been confirmed by Reaper earlier somewhere in these comment threads.
      @ Reaper: Why no Harsk, Lini, Alahazra, or Alain? Do you not like dwarves, gnomes, oracles, or cavaliers? There really should have been three sets of seven Paizo iconics... and without those add-on goals, you're relying entirely on new backers to build the total, and to me that seems dangerous to the momentum of this thing.

    2. Creator Kermode Bear on August 19, 2012

      Thanks guys! I will try not to shame myself. (o:

    3. Creator B. L. Zeebub on August 19, 2012

      @ Kermode: I'll second Jim's second link there. If you're really totally new to painting models period, look up a tutorial on dry-brushing and one on washing (er. .. for the sake of completeness and ease, check out "dipping" too). Two pretty basic techniques that will net you very good-looking models without years of experience and surgeon's hands (blending and active highlighting just take a lot of practice).

    4. Creator B. L. Zeebub on August 19, 2012

      $4 freaking million?! Who reported that (although, we cleared what, nearly $100, 000 in 24 hours already?)? I hope not--I'm nearly pledged dry. . . but the dracolich is really sweet.

      @Kermode: There's the Ultimate Miniature Painting Guide (check coolminiornot.com), clips from (or buy the whole things, but they're pricey) Miniature Painting Secrets with Jennifer Haley or Natalya, or How to Paint Citadel Miniatures (I don't work for them, but it's a good basic guide). Otherwise, my local gaming shop is frequented by a Golden Demon winner and apparently when he's around he's happy to share some tips and techniques--maybe you could ask your shop about it. Basically bug anyone you know who's good about techniques and scour youtube for videos, and above all keep practicing! Good luck.

    5. Creator Kermode Bear on August 19, 2012

      I guess I had better learn how to paint minis... Can anyone recommend some good tutorials?

    6. Creator Hun on August 19, 2012

      OMG... Awesome...

    7. Creator Ramon Gomez on August 19, 2012

      "Reportedly". HAHAHAHAHAHAH

    8. Creator Dan d'Lyon on August 19, 2012

      Oh, and how freakin' awesome is that dragon?!?!?

    9. Creator Dan d'Lyon on August 19, 2012

      Reportedly they have this mapped out to $4 million.... I think there's A LOT left to see.

    10. Creator Lordlupus on August 19, 2012

      Imagine if all 5000 backers wanted the Jabberwock, if all of us pledged $10 extra now, that's additional $50,000 added to the total pledge which will bring us closer to the next stretch goal.
      That's why pledging earlier now is better than pledging later.
      The only issue is pledging for the deep dwellers will only give us a maximum of $35,000 (if every backer pledges for one which is a iffy) and that is not enough to bring us to the dragolich which is what I assume everybody will want. (5000 x $25 = $125,000!!! in the pot)

    11. Creator Dominik Dalek on August 19, 2012

      @Andreas: I don't think there's much left below the dragon's lair. ;)

    12. Creator Andreas on August 19, 2012

      I wonder whether that $100k jump isn't a bit large… We won't be seeing new stretch goals for a while after the next one.

    13. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      Kickstarter gives you 7 days if the first payment doesn't work.

    14. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      Just read that latest update, looks less rosy than a week ago. Hmmmm, maybe you can only swap around for the same amount now. Time for another email.

    15. Creator John Pope on August 19, 2012

      Whatever you pledge needs to be on your credit card the day the KS ends.
      Reaper may have the option for you to increase your pledge and pay more later, but don't count on that and make sure you have your pledged amount available on the last day.

    16. Creator Stephen Rodger on August 19, 2012

      A thirty day window - fantastic! To me it means that I can get the Vampire plus a bit then up it on my next pay run,which falls in the window.

    17. Creator Rick on August 19, 2012

      That's it. Double Vampire.

    18. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      Yes, upgrade if you can afford it, that's better for you and everyone else. If, like me, you can't afford it right now but get a paycheck after the Kickstarter ends, you can do your best now (koffkoffVampirekoffkoff!) and add a bit afterwards.
      Quote from mail from Reaper

      "Reaper Miniatures says:

      Thanks for backing our project the best you can!
      We will be running a Reaper pledge manager utility for about 30 days after this ends... after that you may have to get what you want from retail sources"

      So there is a small window for adjustment, though I don't imagine you can change your pledge level. Just stuff like, hey - I *will* have two more dragons please after all. (This last bit is a guess but I'm not going to risk not being in at Vampire)

    19. Creator Steven Allen on August 19, 2012

      I would like to see some creative dungeon doors as well. Perhaps some caryatid columns of beautiful women, monsters and heroic men would be a nice addition as well. A pair caryatid columns supporting a double stone door would be a nice addition to any collection.

    20. Creator Brian Oz on August 19, 2012

      Dang - $100,000 difference between the next two pledge levels. My greed is insatiable, get that difference down so we can get more, more, MORE! :)

    21. Creator Jordan Peacock on August 19, 2012

      The dungeon dressings look great! But if there's ever more in this vein, I suggest that a dungeon DOOR marker would be especially handy. ;)

    22. Creator Andreas on August 19, 2012

      @Steven: Don't wait to upgrade, do it now. If more people do that, the strech goals will be reached more quickly, giving us more stuff!

    23. Creator Ksempac on August 19, 2012

      Michael > Once the Kickstarter is over, it's too late to add anything to your pledge money. If you wanna get something else at Kickstarter price, it's now or never.

    24. Creator Ogaday on August 19, 2012

      Do you have sculptors in mind for all this gorgeous concept art you're throwing out?

    25. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      They said there would be a Pledge Regulator for about 30 days when I mailed that exact question

    26. Creator Michael Taylor on August 19, 2012

      I'm sorry, but I'm dumb and need it spelt out for me - after the campaign ends, will we have the opportunity to add additional levels/pledges, or will what we pledge is all we get to spend after it comes to a close? Pledging all that I can afford to help out but doesn't mean I don't want more when I can afford more.

    27. Creator Steven Charlton on August 19, 2012

      I have the feeling that in 5.8 days I will be updating my pledge - the add-ons keep getting cooler. Woof!

      I wonder if the Reaper folks had any idea this was going to head off to the stratosphere like this?

    28. Creator Teskal Flink, Wereskunk on August 19, 2012

      in D&D very old dragons have this size without problems.

    29. Creator B. L. Zeebub on August 19, 2012

      Um. . . is that picture really to scale? Does the ol' RPG even have a size category for that?!

    30. Creator Vinsssounet on August 19, 2012

      It's not a Zombie T-Rex.

      But it tastes almost the same.
      Thank you, Reaper !

    31. Creator Brad Dobberfuhl on August 19, 2012

      Holy crap Nethyrmaul is sick!

    32. Creator Matthew D on August 19, 2012

      That dragon looks awesome. Can't wait to get it.

    33. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      Stupid spellchecker, I said Dracolich!

    34. Creator Jeff on August 19, 2012

      A Draconian! whoa!
