Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I don't think they're adding anything else. In 3 all the stuff they added was in the first couple months after the pledge manager opened.

In other words: feel free to dump your wallet at them, abandoning all logic, from here on out.

In Bones I and II, there were no power ups at all. Bones III had all the power ups added in the first update after the KS closed. This one waited a bit, but still only had one new mini added. Considering they previewed some items that they never put in, like the dumpster, it's a little problematic.

Aside from the dumpster, what was previewed and not added? 

 

Not sure if that is problematic; they have to be able to fulfill all their promises. If extras would strain that, they probably aren't a great idea.

Well only two things pop out at the moment. One that we all talked about BUT only saw as a special edition Christmas mini (Cat Dragon), and one we saw previewed but have not heard about since (Battering ham for Trolls add-on). Still waiting on a hard yea/nay confirmation on the battering ham, my pledge on trolls is hinging on that::D:

 

And just to clarify, cat dragon was ONLY ever talked about, never really previewed or anything. It was just a great chat we all had during the kickstarter::D:

It doesn't seem likely at this point, @Rotiahn.

Thank you all for the clarity. I've maxed out everything I wanted to pledge for in the Kickstarter and then some.

 

I'm really psyched for so many of them. I think the Atrolabe is the only item I want but am going to leave till Retail. It's so pretty, but the other pieces with it just aren't calling to me.

Today's payday, so I get to add to my pledge!

 

Hmm...

 

Maybe the wyvern and the wraiths...

I'm glad we have gotten the Genies and Rulers of Hell in the last two updates. I'm happy with both, for the most part. The Efreeti looks great. On the genie I'd prefer to see a strap or something holding the sword on her, as it is now it looks like it's just glued to her rear (yes, she's a genie, it can just be magically held there, just looks a bit odd to me). I love the male Ruler, apart from his back plates, I'm hoping those get altered a little. I'm a little less sold on the female (I would have preferred the standing pose in the concept art over the strolling pose in the render and the sword in the opposite hand from the sheath) but those are relatively small complaints, she still looks good.

 

Going off of Phoenix Rising's comment a couple weeks ago, I organized the minis we have not seen sculpts/renders for yet in order of what I'm most interested in seeing. What are you guys most interested in?

 

I'm most interested in: 
1. Add on - Frost Giant Raiders and Winter Wolf 
2. Add on - Argent's updated scales 
3. Fan Favorites - Isobael 
4. Darkreach - Stone Lurker 
5. Dreadmere - Herbalist 
6. Dreadmere - Terrapin and Guide (pack has been shown) 
7. Dreadmere - Spirit Beast 
8. Lost Valley - 4 Jade Fire clan 
9. Add on - Half-Orc Ghost 
10. Add on - Charon 
11. Darkreach - 5 Deep Gnomes 
12. Darkreach - Rockmaw 
13. Core - 2 of Sophie's friends (seen Sophie and Duelist) 
14. Darkreach - 2 Dark Elves 
15. Dreadmere - Halfling Lantern-bearer 
16. Dreadmere - Lady Swashbuckler

Got a 3 (out of 3) on my evaluation at work which is pretty uncommon around here.  Now if my department has money at the end of the fiscal year (June 30th) then I am getting a bonus!  So maybe my pledge will be a little bigger than originally thought.

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. 

the new Adon Enforcer CAV that Talon Games sent as a bonus for the CAV II KS has some awesome details. It is a much firmer Bonesium, too. 

More figures like that, and I think even metal purists will be impressed.

I think Mossbeard is perfectly playable!  I envision doing an Ogre (the sci-fi giant tank game) type scenario where Mossbeard has to cross the length of the table, faced by never-ending waves of re-spawning goblins who are trying to stop him with their little-bitty swords and arrows.  :lol: 

 

When I ordered Mossbeard, I had no idea what I was going to do with him.  I just figured that if I didn't buy him at the KS price, I never would.

 

NOW I know what I am going to do with him!

Zombie dragon, Nyralathotep, and Argent added!  I've ruled out a couple other things so probably add a little next month and I'll be done!

I think I am about $70.  I might cut out a few bases which would bring it down a little more but my son's bday is in March so if this stays on schedule it would be nice to have some Bones to give him as a present.  He really likes the Thunderfoot and Blacktooth so I might add them.

You can't deprive a child of dinosaurs if they love dinosaurs. Pretty sure it constitutes child abuse. You should get dinosaurs for your munchkin. :poke:
