I like the smaller figures... the latest are made of a harder plastic and don't have as much issues as the ones from KS 1 to 3

Big models are a great values in any Bones KS... much cheaper than when they hit the general sales...

Could you expand a little on this?
If this is a kickstarter then what is the expected completion date?
Also, if this is an ‘add on”, what is it adding to?  I know there are items that Reaper do which would fit with the Greek myths but they seem to be randomly placed amongst other miniatures in their range.  Is there a group of Greek myth minis that these are adding to?

The sculpts look good so I am interested but I have nil knowledge of Reapers Kickstarter programme.

I assume this is a Kickstarter to come.

Nice looking mythical creatures!

It will be part of the current KS, which ends the end of the month IIRC, but doesn't fulfill for a year or so afterwards. Lock-in for pledges is August 30 2020 or something like that.

The KS has a Core Set, plus various small add-ons, and then typically has one or more supplemental thematic sets. It looks like this year there is a Dungeon Expansion, and Asian-themed expansion, a Greek Expansion and an Undersea Expansion.

Last time the expansions were $50 add-ons, and the core set was $100. This year I think the core set is $120. I haven't noticed if the expansion prices have gone up or even if they've been shown yet.

Also: because they have so many backers they divide them up into waves for each mailing region. Each wave has a later fulfillment date than the previous. When I tried to back this KS, the wave I was trying to back had filled up before I had managed to sign in!

At the end of the KS they will charge my card as usual but I will have until the end of August next year to add on or make changes to my pledge.

The first two add-ons are 50$ also this year. The Core Set has gone up by 20$ compared to last KS Core set which was indeed 100$

Wow, loving the look of this Myth stuff. Not too pleased with the base pledge at the moment though.

Thanks to Sir Barnaby for the additional information.

In common with a fair number of war gamers, I tend to have a butterfly mentality, so will likely have moved my interests on from the Greek myths by the time these minis appear.

Hats off to all of those involved in the kick starter.  I envy your forward planning and patience.

I've never signed up for one of these, so I thought I'd dive in.  I admit the core has  many figs of limited value to me (especially the kid hero sets), but it is an adventure.

Being in Belgium, I expect my wallet to get whacked with pretty awful duty... Any one have experience with receiving these on the continent pre-Brexit?

Love the greek stuff but have no use for any of the figures in the Basic Pledge  :-[

My stuff from Bones 1 is still in the box it came in.

Pretty sure you can get just extras, if you want.
i.e. use the $1 pledge then add what you want in the pledge manager.

This said, love the greek mith options. Plenty of uses (OGaM, Broken Legions...)

Or just wait and pick up the single figures you want later when they're released? :D

I didn't buy in to any of the reaper kickstarters and I regretted it at the time, but now I'm glad I didn't; it's a few less pounds of crushing weight of unpainted miniatures for me to deal with :D

I jumped in for a $1 and will probably go for the Greek mythic stuff and a few bigger add ons (dragons and the War mammoth)

That said I got the Lost Valley stuff (which is very nice) on the last KS and haven't done anything with it....

Remember, you don't have to pledge for the core.  Just pledge at the 1 dollar level, but add money up to what you want.  That's what I did for Bones 4, and in the pledge manager you can add even more stuff.
