Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Considering Argent is just an inch shy of the colossal red dragon figure from Wizards I honestly think hes the best deal in quite awhile for in game DoD is awesome as a set piece though. and looking at the pose im thinking i might sneak a clear sticky tac piece right on his back to have a figure perched their as a rider.

 

Currently planning a good final battle with a Ancient Red/Black with a Lich Riding or a Gold/Silver with a Solar on his back if the party is an evil one

Gotta name him "Old Pyrite"!!

 

Players may think he's a old Gold dragon....

 

He needs a name as lengthy and fancy as himself!

 

hezikabadadia! I typed in the first and then face rolled on the keyboard for the rest!

Also the Fire Giant jailor, the Statue of Dagon, the town extras, and I *think* a couple of others (on top of the various translucent/transparent weapon sets, and the invisible Kyphrixis). 

Were any of those stretch goals that were previewed/revealed and not met? or were they literally surprises after KS ended?

But nothing huge and expensive like a $60 add on

 

i think I am dropping the boat too, not worth it for us and we probably wouldn't use it in gaming

Yah, unless something great is shown if/when they show pt3, I am passing.

Removing the boat put me at $2 short of what I pledged, I will have to add in something small from the coreset

They have bases for $2 in PM right now.

I hope the Reaper folks are whooping it up right now in celebration.

 

 Actually, I hope they're cleaning up and going home to sleep...

 

 At the mo, my list looks like this:

 

Paints A+B, cuz... paint.

High Rollers

Rocky the Red

Spartans, male + female

 

I'm definitely going to be adding in Izzy's art book, and getting doubles of basically everything on my list, as well as the Sophie and Friends set (cuz ya can't have a KS without getting a Sophie. There's like, a law, or something.)

Possibly adding in:

Small World Heroes

Villagers

Roc

King Cobra

Stones Tiles

Fantasy Scenics

Maybe Dod and Argent as well

well, I'm looking at just under $700. Still a lot less than last kickstarter, and even within throwing distance of my mental budget.

 

core, big demon guy, huntsman, trolls, amazons, tree of despair, glowy paints, baba's house, c-cans, Big Bird, giant girls (with clothes, even,) large-scale female demon (And brother), scenics, ent, one of each expansion and the barge. Plus spare apes for supers RPGs.

 

What I'm wondering is if reaper is going to add stuff in post-kickstarter, like last time.

 

The dragons, especally DoD look nice, but I have too many dragons from previous kickstarters already; I'll never paint them all. The giant snake would be fun to paint up as a jade statue for scenery, but I'm getting a ton of scenery this KS already. Dragon turtle for a space creature, but I've got space creatures already (Even if they aren't as nice, damit) Rocky to maybe give to cousins, but by the time the KS showed up they'd probably be out of the age range of appreciating them. dinosaurs. Dinosaurs. DINOSAURS (Forces my 10-year-old-self to look away from the pledge manager).

I pledged $300. Thought I was in pretty good shape, but pledge calculator has me at $993.00 + $25.82 shipping.... Gah.. $1018.82... So that means I have to find $718.82 before the pledge manager closes...

 

That breaks down to

$200.00 in Core

$57.00 in bases

$200.00 in expansions

$152.00 in core set extras

$4.00 in flight poles

$337.00 in Add ons

 just spot adding... This looks like it will be my most expensive Kickstarter. 2nd one was $800 in pirate ships and 3rd was bones 3...

I'll be pondering whether or not to add Argent and the Skeletal Dragon later.  I like them, and I did want to get a dragon this go-round, but boy did I blow the budget already.  Gotta start the restraint somewhere.  ::(:

 

Nyarlathotep is a must.

 

I'm a little frustrated by the Fan Favorites.  There are some things, maybe even "enough" things, that I want and can almost justify the expansion.  But I'm getting very strong reactions against the items that I don't want.  It's an extreme want/don't want situation.  I want those maggots.  I want the dark dwarves.  I want the Bog Skeletons.  I want that Mammoth.  The rest?  No--I just don't have a purpose for them.  Truthfully, I could do without the dwarves, but I like duergar like some folks like drow.

 

I had also hoped to see Stygian Barge III.  I am very intrigued by that...Charon?  Crowned Wraith King?  Inquiring minds want to know.

My pledge amount has been going down in each subsequent Bones kickstarter since the first. In Bones 3 I didn't even get the core or any of the expansions.

That looks to change with Bones 4. It's easier to list what I have little or no interest in than to list what I want.

No to:

The wraiths.

Paint set A.

Skeletal Monsters.

Nyarlathotep.

Chronoscope Expansion.

Fan Favorites Expansion.

 

On The Fence:

Dragon Turtle.

King of the Jungle.

King Cobra.

Agramon Duke of Hell.

Stones Tiles.

Argent.

Darkreach Expansion.

 

Whew!

And that was leaving off Baba yaga's hut (cause I don't think I would use it) and Dance of death (because I don't think it would work in a game... That does include 2 Argents and 2 Barges though...

Agreed. I like that Mammoth (actually want 2 -4) and I like the catfolk and bard... the rest I could live without...

This is about $300 more than Bones 3 for me... I did not get the expansions in 3... Really want to get them this time. Though Chronoscope is out... I like 4 figures in it and want 20 of 1 of those 4...

 

I hope they leave the pledge manager open a little longer this time.. Really want 4 of the barges.... I think I can make them into

A: a pirate ship

B: a pirate hunter

C: A flying ship

D: a Starwars Hutt Sky barge

 I had to work hard to narrow down my selections to the bare minimum of stuff I was absolutely positive I really wanted. Anything above and beyond that which might get added later is entirely dependent on finances and whether or not I find better things to spend my money on.

I held out well in the end.  Locked in for Nargaulath, Fire/Hill Giant Houndsmen, Blacksting, and the big Treant.  

 

So far I am still holding strong on NOT ordering DoD but it looked even better on the after party video.  I love it but I just have too many unpainted dragons so I really need to be strong.

 

That fan favorite Xpac has stuff that I absolutely love  (portal, slaad) but I'm going to have to wait for retail on those... hoping on seeing the slaad in metal tbh...

 

Will wait to see some of the concept art realized as masters before I decide on them... (frost giants, devils,nyarlathotep)

I ended up pledging less than what I know will be my minimum order. Decided that I could use the cash elsewhere right now. The PM will be used...

 

Definitely will buy

Core set

Dreadmere expansion

Lost valley expansion

Hill giants

Wraiths

Trolls

Baba Yaga's hut

Hill giant huntsman

Frost giant raiders

Fantasy scenics

 

This puts me at $347 with shipping which is my limit at the moment. I hadn't planned on buying a bunch of giants but after seeing the models and because I already own a few I went for groups of them.

 

Haven't worked out what my total list cost will be yet because I'm a bit scared to see it. :wacko:

      Goblin Troublemakers  
      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.
