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.

      the mighty Troll (work in progress)  
       
       
       
      Goblins ... iconic fantasy creatures, maybe not the most dangerous, comical at times,
      And Trolls ... Trolls may be a bit slow ... not to say stupid, but they are big, and strong! (and always hungry!)
      Together, Trolls and Goblins are a force to reckon with!
      This campaign is a small group of goblins and a big troll to accompany them. If they are funded, we'll add more goblins, for larger warbands, some characters to lead them, and more trolls!
      Goblins are among my favorite figurines to carvings, different expressions, anatomy, costumes and armours ... I have many of them in the pipeline, and I want to sculpt many more!
      You can pledge for a warband of 5, 10 or 20 goblins. If you pledge for 5, they will be the 5 goblins you see here. If you pledge for 10 or 20 models you'll get 2 or 4 of each of them. However, you're more likely to be stretched, they'll be swapped with other miniatures so you get the minimum amount of doubles. And some of these goblins thrown in the larger warband will not be your average goblin canon fodder!
      If you want to add a Troll (or several!) To your goblin warband, just add $ 22 (per troll) to your pledge.

      About this project
       
       
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is a narrative miniatures board game that plunges you into the heart of the Hundred Years’ War. In this dark, medieval universe, kings plot for the throne of France, and on the battlefield their heroic knights clash with foes both real and legendary.
      For more than a century, from 1337 to 1453, the fields of France rang to the sound of constant warfare. The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars ever fought and is the source of many of our collective ideas about heroic knights of old. It was also a time of myths and legends, and a fervent faith in the literal truth of the doctrine of Holy Mother Church. It is this world of strife and faith that this game recreates.
      In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, all the creatures that the medieval people thought were real, are real. Whether they are represented on tapestries, in stained glass windows, or in illuminated manuscripts, we take them at their word. It is this dark and epic universe that you will explore in the game’s many scenarios. Some are historical, with no taint of the whispered legends of strange creatures. Others are replete with the supernatural or (saints preserve us) demonic.
      You are free to control the army of miniatures that represent your heroes, knights and peasants as you wish in order to achieve your goals. You will decide who moves and where; whether your forces explore, pray, converse with locals, or simply charge into battle. But before we get to the field of glory, you must first choose your side.
        
      Joan Of Arc, Bertrand Du Guesclin, La Hire, Gilles de Rais & Jean de Dunois (miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted)  The French have a very large army whose leaders follow the code of chivalry to the letter. These noble knights form the main striking force of the army, with their infantry taking a subservient role. The French employ few archers, but do hire efficient crossbowmen to fight alongside their men-at-arms. All these warriors fight on behalf of the King of France, who sees the war as a chance to reclaim lands lost to the English under earlier monarchs.
      The Black Prince, Falstaff, John Talbot, John Chandos & John of Lancaster (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The English king considers himself the legitimate heir to the throne of France, and there is some truth in this. In fact, he only failed to gain the crown because the French changed the rule of royal succession to stop him.
      The English army, though considerably less numerous than the French, are formidable combatants, who often have the best strategists. Their longbowmen wreak havoc on the battlefield, and have repeatedly bested the cream of French chivalry in battle. This is a slight that the French knights are determined to avenge.
      Archange Gabriel, the Unicorn & Angel (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The army of God is made up of powerful, heavenly beings like the angels and archangels. They fight their righteous battles alongside the lesser creatures of God, and the weary mortals who struggle with sin, but are devoted to their creator.
      The Holy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.
      The Witch, the Werewolf & the Ghost Warrior (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The Devil’s army is made up of all sorts of foul creatures: werewolves, demons, skeletons, dragons, witches, and many more. Countless fallen mortals march alongside this monstrous host, having cast aside their God and sold their souls for mere wealth or power. It is rumoured that in this dark time, when the End of Days has never seemed so close, even the Devil himself may make an appearance...
      The Unholy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.

      Another set of plastic minis for the Ogre game, or for fans of retro style tanks.
       
      I don't see a pledge that includes the Ogre game, looks like just minis this time.
