The sheer thought of adding 200+ unpainted figures to the queue is laughable really, in my neck of the woods anyway. Not to mention adding all of those figures in one, single shot. The Reaper Bones Kickstarter however may be too good to pass up.
For the 'Vampire' level you get all of the figs shown here on the left, by the time lunch rolls around here on the eastern seaboard there's a good bet owlbears and griffons will be included as well. This brings the total closer to about 220 figs, or about .45 cents each.
I've got a bit of geekin' out money squirreled away and I was eye-balling Super Dungeon Explore, which is a fun, light boardgame that comes filled to the gills with 52 cool looking miniatures. A game I can play with friends and family, and a lot of figs to paint. An extra thirty bucks and I get three times the number of figs with the Reaper deal.
A hundred bucks could also buy the excellent boardgame Eclipse, one of those games that you're always glad your buddies own because normally you wouldn't drop a hundred bucks on a single game.
Bah, I don't know. I'm an impulsive buyer, but often suffer buyer's remorse as well. I'm a minis gamer, but also not painting a lot of minis right now. There's other boardgames that have been on my wishlist for some time like Dominant Species, Eminent Domain, Alien Frontiers...heck, I could almost get all three of those.
So I don't know, with the Reaper deadline approaching (about 57 hours) I do have a little breathing room to think about it, but I still don't have a clue. The figs would be a great haul, and at a great price. Some boardgames would get more use though, without a doubt. Super Dungeon Explore solves both issues to an extent.
What do y'all think?
