Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

4133 posts in this topic

Welp, while I've been less than enthused about many of the reveals so far (personal taste, not a knock on Reaper), I've got to say that I'm very happy with the Tree of Despair and the Dreadmere expansion.

 

I can't say that I will 100% keep the Dreadmere expansion on my "must buy" list, but it's there right now and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next for it.

Nothing much interests me yet beyond the core set. I'm hoping for some nice creatures coming up in the stretch goals.

 

I need something to wow me like the BFG, Mashaaf, or Nethermaul did in the last few. I'm guessing there will be something because there's a lot of time left.

So am I correct, did I hear them say that the chronoscope expansion is done, there will be no more additions? Just trying to figure out what I will budget for and knowing this will help (well budget from here to July 2018 haha).

 

Correct; Reaper has confirmed a few times that the Chronoscope Expansion has only 3 parts.

 

Huzzah!

 Looking at the tree, the space between the rope and chain on the left and right.  It looks like you could hang a victim on each side.  Lots of versatility!

Very nice!! I guess people really want that tree!

 

 

I think it's both the tree, for those who up their pledge when a goal is announced, and the chronoscope expansion being completed for those who up their pledge when the goal is achieved.

 

I'm very impressed with the new backers added just before the Ding, and the 2K+ hours we have had after the ding. I suspect we will Ding again tomorrow.

I would also think the new expansion has something to do with it. I wonder if there is really a way to find out what the breakdown is...the PM could be an indicator if it is being utilized and data can be extrapolated from it in some way already.

While I am not an official source, I would say the Chrono. Expansion is complete.  All expansions in past Kickstarters have only had three sub-set additions; and the fact there is no more blank space on that Expansion's graphic is a sure sign.

Great that helps a lot as far as deciding where in my after KS list this expansion goes. Should be worth $50, but definitely want Core and my other fave add-ons first. Depending on what dreadmere unlocks, that may go in also, but so far not on my list (and my wallet is happy about that).

I do t have the graph link copied on my phone, it's in one boots summaries, and I posted it a bit back here. 

 

But on that graph I note slope of the line during the middle of the Bones 3 ks was steeper and set to intersect the line for Bones 2 if it had been given more time and had continued on it's then current trajectory. Theoretically given enough time, Bones 3 would have met or exceeded the funding of Bones 2. 

 

Bones 4 curve mirrors Bones 3.

 

 

i wonder when the pie throwing would occur.

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      About this project
      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
