Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I also was a little disappointed with the lack of caribou.

 

I liked the way it made the point that this was a GIANT, not just a humanoid mini that happened to be cast bigger.

Alright, now we can have Reaper make an entire sprue of animal carcasses to hang over her shoulders! ^_^

 

 

That's really good idea, and would have all sorts of uses outside of the Giant.

That is an awesome idea! It would have all kinds of uses,

 

Scene setting, dungeon dressing, modifying minis

I'm thinking an orc or a string of goblins would work as well. :lol:

Alright, I snuck in another order. I am up to:

 

Core

Four expansions (not sci fi)

Both paint sets

Fantasy Scenics

Dance of Death

Stygian Barge

 

I have a long list of what I want to still add. Not sure how much will actually be able to be added.

I, too, am a fan of Giants that have looted or "upcycled" Little Folk items on their person, so that it shows scale without needing Sir Forscale next to it.  Bags of loot, kegs as flasks, and of course, like we've all been discussing, corpses/preserved food.

I was planning on painting the eagle on the first Frost Giantess' helmet as an actual bird taken as a trophy and nailed to the helmet, in that style.

Remember we also have a Roc coming in. And they're often pictured carrying some other known large beast.

Lots of room to attach just about anything in those talons. Like two TWENTY caribous!

You can pledge for them, so I hope so >.> were they not a-go?

 

I just hadn’t seen anything but drawn art for them. Not having a good idea on the timing of these things (and with the caribou incident) I suddenly got worried.

On a related note,  has there been a confirmation that the cat people are still a go? 


Update 86 had them:

I second the return of the Caribou!

It makes the mini more interesting!

Any other prey is also cool.

Can someone explain the below images to me? Anyone else feel that some of these sculpts are a little too WoW-looking?  I was really enthusiastic about pledging in for my first Reaper Core Set, plus some extras, but looking closer I'm not so sure. Many of the weapons look positively cartoonish, and the big smooth features remind me of HeroForge, and not necessarily in a good way.

Or are these just temporary images of incomplete projects?

An official answer would have to come from Reaper, but the warriors and demon look like 3D renders while the wizards look like actual sculpts.

      This one is running low on time, and is absolutely hilarious.

      Kickstarter is live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/plastcraftgames/exo-mankind-reborn-board-game
       
      An upcoming kickstarter by Plast Craft games, an established maker of terrain for various genres.
       
      This is their first foray into miniatures as well as an actual game. 
       
      Should note that English is not their first language, but they've been very responsive whenever I've sent a query about one of their buildings.
       
      The link below is to a draft of the kickstarter not the kickstarter itself which will launch on May 2nd.

      About this project
       In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale... and this tale is one of bringing the works of Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate to life in the form of metal miniatures suitable for both collecting and gaming.
       Peter Firmin and Daniel Postgate, Oliver's son, have given their licensed blessing to this project. Every miniature produced will be lovingly packaged in the heart of the lead belt, otherwise known as Nottingham, and then shipped to all backers. There are many more miniatures in the offing provided funding is reached which will encourage me to keep going....and to ensure my bank manager doesn't rue the day I walked through his door a few months back with a tiny acorn of an idea.....
       The 16 initial sculpts, by the awfully talented Martin Buck, have already been mastered by the also talented hands of another dedicated Noggin fan, Peter Brown of The Mouldmaker. Each miniature is on a 20mm round base (although these have shrunk slightly in the moulding process) and average about 30mm in height.
       Peter Firmin has been actively involved in the consultation, refinement and approval of the final figures after all, they are his creation! Daniel Postgate, Oliver's son, is of course involved in the project for Smallfilms.
      They will be cast in a white metal alloy and boxed in a rather nice presentation set unless you choose the single blister option.
      Packaging work in progress  Although all of the miniatures look wonderful in the bare metal as supplied, they really come alive with the addition of a little paint and colour - look at what can be achieved in the pics below - fabulous paintwork from the gifted hands of brush maestro Andrew Taylor
       
       
       
      A lot more sculpts are planned, some are works in progress that will be posted as updates throughout the course of the Kickstarter. This Kickstarter is to allow the production of the first 16 sculpts as a set and to finance the production of the rest.

      Hello guys! 
      I am here to show you the new KS from Ludus Magnus Studio coming this spring!
       

       
      Black Rose Wars is a board game that will guide you into the world of Nova Aetas.The Black Rose lodge meets to determine who will be the new Magister, the keeper of forgotten magic. The most powerful mages affiliated with the lodge will confront each other in a series of epic and captivating battles, exploiting the arcane powers in their possession. The event, which determines the destiny of the lodge every ten years, will be hosted in the rooms of the Black Rose manor.
       
      In Black Rose Wars, each player uses magic to collect Power Points by killing the other mages, destroying the rooms of the lodge, making them unstable or completing personal missions. At the start of the game, each mage begins with spell cards selected from a school of choice. Each of the Black Rose Wars schools contains different and unique spells, which leads to different victory strategies. Each school, like Divination and Trasmutation, have different type of spells which gives the mage different strategies to become the most powerful mage.

      Or you can ask here and I will do my best for answer!

      Hello everyone we are venturing into the Kickstarter realm again with a fully digital to cast project. Warning this one is on the artistic nude side, so be careful if at work or sensitive area...
       
      "In the desert realm of Tharaa, summer’s heat lies as heavily upon the lavish court of the Sultana as it does upon the simple shops and homes of her subjects. Yet they are the ones who rejoice with the cool evening zephyrs that race refreshingly through their markets stalls, tents, and villas; breezes that never seem to reach the perfumed halls of the Sultana’s court. On those stifling, windless, near endless days; comfort, pleasure, and even mere distraction elude the powerful ruler. Her great wealth, her many servants, and her countless possessions seem more burden than blessing. On those days when clothing itself seems a pointless effort, the beauty and power of the human form acts as reminder that modesty can be a needless vanity..."
