Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure the human sized or smaller figures will eventually come in metal. It makes sense if they do. I mean Reaper has the files/sculpts already might as well use them. I for one am glad they are as I'm not a fan of Werner Klocke's Bones sculpts for example. Way too much detail that gets lost in the translation.

 

 

 

He's a great sculptor, but I tend to agree that his detailing gets dulled in plastic. Bones is improving over time though; maybe this version will be better. Still, if there is a market for the metal (and I think we've proved there is), may as well make them in both materials! Heck, it would make for good stuff to test color schemes on. Test a figure's composition in Bones loosely, then do a really kickbroccoli paint-up on metal.

Ooooh yep, comparing the preview gallery to the core and lost valley set, I think you guys are right. This makes me quite happy. I hope the deep and bloodstone gnomes get metalized too. They're wee sized. 

 

If more of the little ones come out in metal then I can more freely fling the Bones ones at Sir Cyr and friends, yay! 

 

*back to scheming about my volcanic-lighting color scheme for Dance of Death Dragons*

Blodstone Gnomes should be in metal already (unless these are new sculpts) under the Warlord line.

Speaking of viewing the Core Set, those images aren’t showing up for me on the KS page (I use the app), only in the Pledge Manager. Is this a hiccup or intentional?

 

I recall them saying that they could no longer update the KS one once the KS ended so its just on the pledge manager site now. 

 

(could totally be wrong!)

That's accurate. The number of images and traffic was getting to be too much for KS's servers the last week or so and updates started to glitch out and the main page wouldn't update properly and eventually they just said forget it and made this side page to show the details:

https://www.reapermini.com/bones4

Which sadly they stopped adding things to.

The current state of the campaign page is the last state they got to be stable.

One of the reasons I haven't gotten Dreadmere is I'm hoping more of them come out in metal.. and thats the only reason I'm disappointed in the Geniekin size.. i was hoping for both of them in metal..

Thankfully, after I order Fan Favorites expansion with money from ebay sales, I will have just under $150 to go. Soon i'll be able to turn my monthly allowance to other endeavors :)

And not to kick a dead horse, but @Reaper Ron, can we please get a yes or no on whether or not the trolls will get the battering ham? Honestly, this is what has kept me from pulling the trigger on that ONE pledge.

I know I'll beat myself up later if I don't get the core set but I also can't get myself to commit to it. 

 

I'm not crazy about a lot of but there are a few things I really like.  It would also give the kids a pile of figures to paint.

The Core Set is broken down in several parts you can pledge for separately.

Having figures to fling at munchkins is a good thing :poke:

      About
                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".
