Sweet mother of bacon bits! My Bones Kickstarter order has arrived! I was on business travel in Ohio all week, and got the call from the Fiancee that of course they were dropped off while I was out. So, what was the first thing I did when I got home, jet-lagged and travel-grimey? Of course, I opened up the box and inventoried all of them on my dining room table!
|Prepare for unboxening!|
|So many bags! (oranges included for scale)|
|The cat was helping.|
|All set out, arranged and and labeled by group.|
Having now given the sculpts a once over, I am entirely pleased with my choice to back the Kickstarter, despite all the delays. The sculpts have a lot of personality to them, and there is a good variety, even among similar pieces. The only downsides I see are:
- A bunch of the minis got bent in transit, but that is fixable with a regimen of hot water to soften the plastic followed by cold to reset them in the proper position.
- Some of the smaller sculpts are a bit murky in the details, and some of the faces on the medium sized figures look like they're going to be a challenge to paint, because they're not super defined.
|I hear they have pills that can help with this problem|
Nevertheless I am really looking forward to doing some test paints, though I'm not really sure where to start.
|This guy was one of my surprise favorites. |
He looks like an evil fantasy version of Mac Tonight.
