Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah don't get me wrong, I think all the chrono stuff is super cool, but I think when all is said and done, if I can't put my finger on a use for it I probably have to wait for retail and see if I want it  (and have the money) then.

My issue with the Chronoscope stuff is the unifying theme is "Scifi" so other than that there is no real theme between all the minis... So while I could use some for one thing, I cant use others... And don't have enough of the one thing that I would want for the intended use...

 

Side note... I think I am gonna get the andromedan princess in metal while waiting for this to fufil....

This is the campaign setting that has been used at the last couple of Reapercons.  It's a fantasy world with horror elements, and is not tied to any one game system.

I think it's a wise choice for flexibility. Can easily stretch from medieval fantasy to 20th century for some minis. Gives a lot of value. I'm not sure what a third expansion would be, but I think I'll need this. I'm figuring this first part is about 40$ and fills gaps I have.

I think that I'll be in for $300 during the kickstarter, then bump it up in the PM when I get my tax refund next year.

The only thing "scifi" is the rifle, but it could be a coil rifle or other black powder type weapon... I even had a race that uses "wand Muskets" which were basically muskets that were loaded with wands... that allowed non casters to activate...

It would be relatively easy to chop that rifle off and replace with a spear. 

 

@Clearman - that's exactly what hat I was thinking! Great minds think alike!

Yeah I'm going to have to start being choosy, especially as more gets revealed. Not needing the chrono expansion saves me some headroom in the budget though.

Yeah I looked... That would be a bit cost prohibitive for the amounts I want....

I am there with you. I like the Chrono expansion, but It will not make the list if they keep pumping out cool stuff... Maybe in the pledge manager... maybe

Yah that's what I am thinking too. Unfortunately at this point, I'll probably have to stay with my low pledge and pray things get better so I can bump up for a lot of what is available before July comes.

My tax return (if I get any) will probably be how I get all what I want (or get my Ebay sales moving). Unfortunately things are bad right now, to the point I have had to file one of those B things:( not even sure how the next month will play out. Everyone please pray our family gets through all this BS this month. Thanks everyone!

Really excited to see what will come next in this Dreadmere expansion. Jacob, Reisman, Worden and Wladislaw are good examples for "thugs" for me. They don't look heroic and I can see them robbing a struggling PC behind a tavern as well as storming a castle as part of an angry mob or robbing merchants on the lonely roads around the village. 

I've got them in metal (though I've named them the Hansen brothers) that I use for Frostgrave.  They are quite nice.  I could do with another set myself.  Pretty sure that I'm in for this expansion even though I have all of the existing minis in metal/resin already.

Same here. They're good minis, and having duplicates isn't a bad thing. Plus now (18+months from now) I can chop up the Bones ones for conversions without worrying about destroying/ruining a metal or resin mini.

So was this in a pathfinder game system or something else entirely?

 

Neutral setting using whatever rules ReaperWolf uses for Rcon that year. This year it's Castles & Crusades (I think).

I'm still over pledged for what I want.. the core this time is much more in line with what I need.. the expansions not so much but we'll see what Dreadmere holds in the future.. now do I buy more paint in the colors I already have, or just multiples of any new colors.. *ponder*

i want a Roc

 

and sea serpent

 

and pirate gnolls

@Sirithiliel do you want with or without Elephant? I am curious. Not advocating for or against either option. Also, what wingspan does it need to have to consider it a Roc? (Could somebody just sub a 1:1 scale Raven to use as a Roc?)

 

I thought they once did a sea serpent in separately based pieces. Tail + U shaped half coil + Head. All based emergent from water. That would be cool. Add additional U segments to create longer serpents. 

 

I liked your pirate Gnolls drawing.

I'm so conflicted with the Dreadmere expansion...  Some of the human-sized ones I might have in metal but then they had to include a boat.  I really want that boat. 

I can build that boat. Still nice to have as a timesaver. Building a boat that nice takes time.

I'm in for Dreadmere too. Who doesn't need a barrel of fish?

Multiple barrels of fish would be nice, also crates, tabled fish, fish on smoking racks...

 

Also, additional boats. Like a pirate longboat, armed with swivel guns. Or a small pinnace with a nine-pounder Cannon mounted forward, a barge would be good, or maybe a keelboat. 

 

Additional things of gruesome, I am not much of a fan of those.

I actually like the Chrono set for that reason.    I see it kind of like a Reaper Sci-Fi sampler.  It gives me a chance to get a hands-on view of a lot of their different sci-fi figures, try out paint schemes, etc; and then I can decide which ones, if any, I want to build units of.

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
