    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I was between gainful employment during KS1, sadly, but I did Bones 2 and 3. Billy bookcases can get glass doors, and you can add extra shelves, too. I have the top half of one as my minis display, with the bottom half for gaming books. I'm going to need to rearrange and buy another one once I get Bones 4 painted up. I'm running out of room.

    It helped that I was working at a call center that didn't complain when I painted minis at work. You get a lot done when painting during a 10 hour shift... I recently changed jobs, and until I get into a comfortable state at the new one, painting is probably going to be much harder to accomplish, sadly...

    Catfolk feet?

    Yeah, I am a hard pass on most of the recent catfolk. They look smooth, with almost no fur detailing, like they're sphinxes without actually having the right head scuplts to be sphinxes. I've been dissatisfied with their overall smoothness, and I hadn't even noticed those feet. Yeesh.

    I got two expansions, didn't bother with Lost World, Chronoscope, or Fan Favorites. I wanted about 25-30 % of Fan Favorites, but I just couldn't do the price of it, even if I might have been able to sell a lot of it in the secondary market. I also figured that several of the minis I liked I'd probably prefer to get in pewter anyway. I'm looking forward to delivery. I have gotten through most of my Bones 3 miniatures, though I've been on hiatus due to a job change and having to work to get some licenses for the new job. So, unlike with Bones 3 arriving after I'd already finished Bones 2, I actually have some minis left in the queue, though they're mostly humanoids that I prefer to save in case they wind up being needed for a player character at some point...

    The Skyless Realms -3D Printable Tabletop Models

    And once again, I find myself wishing I had the funds to buy a 3-D printer...

    Very cool. What's the bamboo made from?
  8. I spent about 3 weeks at home with my newborn after my wife had to return to work, and most of that time was spent with the baby in a bjorn on my chest. I watched TV, played video games, read, ate lunch, pretty much everything. He'd fall asleep in there, get fed in there, pretty much everything was possible, and I wasn't as hampered. I don't think that painting miniatures would have been possible with the baby in the chest, but maybe... I wasn't really back into painting at the time.
  9. As a backer of Bones 2, I got a copy of 77354: Sir Daniel, Mounted Crusader. As was acknowledged at the time, there were serious issues with the mold, such as him having a left hand on his right, and no hand at all on the left side. Seeing as the miniature is only now being announced in the Coming Soon section, should we take it that the mold has been corrected to have the correct hands?
  10. Dangit. I forgot to get my entry in before midnight last night. Another year missed. C'est la vie.

    Announcing Reaper Bones Black!

    The Bones Weapon Sprues from Bones 3 are really nice for replacing bent Bones weapons. They're sturdier, and generally just convenient to use. Very glad I got an extra set back during the KS...

    Announcing Reaper Bones Black!

    I see from the Previews section a "Bones Black Owlbear." Looks really nice, makes me somewhat sad that I got an extra during Bones 4 of the other sculpt, since 2 different sculpts are better than two monsters with the same one, but I may have to get this new guy. He is listed as being $7.99.

    I'm happy to paint and post some free promo minis

    I backed the smaller pads a while back, and really love them. I desperately wanted to back this one, but I didn't have the funds at the time. I really wish they'd just get these in a web store already. It's something I've been waiting on for years at this point...

    I passed on Dance of Death, mostly because I try to buy miniatures that might see some playtime, not just be for display, and I didn't think I could make that work in any way. I picked up 2 copies of Argent, however - one to be a Christmas gift for a friend in 2019, and the other to be a Platinum dragon alongside my Ma'al Drakar. I got Rocky at my wife's request (first time she's ever insisted I back a specific miniature), and I have the Roc on order, too. Still not sure if I'll paint it up as a Roc or as a Phoenix. I really wish we'd been able to get that in translucent plastic as well...
