Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Yeah. The same decision making team that thought it should go felt that incorporating a thread about being disappointed by its absence into an enthusiasm thread made sense. Bones 5 will be made from black licorice at this rate.

 

While I enjoy black licorice & minis that double as a snack might come in handy, I'd rather have the caribou back... :down:

Everyone knows shoulders are a human's greatest weak point.  They must be protected at all cost.

Honestly, I figured that thread would either be merged or locked. It took longer than I expected. Because, while reaper is a great company, and takes our input seriously, at the end of the day it's still a private business, and they're gonna make the desicions about their product in their own way. 

 

Would I like to see the giantess keep the caribou? Yes. It's a neat detail. Do I expect reaper to make alterations to an expensive product because of that neat detail that they may have had good reason to cut? No.

Agreed. I've really grown attached to the idea of a sprue of dead animals (it came up in the Caribou discussion) which sadly is unlikely to happen so now I've doubly saddened myself. But not enough to not get the Huntress. She's fierce! And hey, who knows what Bones 5 will bring!

Put it in the bones you'd like to see thread! Lots of the suggestions in those threads make it, in some form, into mini form. I'm pretty sure there's lots of support for the dead animal minis (me for one).

 

Not that I like random dead animals. Just that minis of them are handy.

I agree with pretty much everything @redambrosia has said. 

 

A sprue of dead animals would be really useful. I know of some that Figone distributes animal minis and dead animals, but 1) high shipping costs, 2) delay time, 3) horrible packaging on resin and they'll probably come broken. With the heat-freeze trick you could probably even make Bones dead critters fall into the shape you want (like over a backpack). 

Plus they'd be useful for general adventuring, either as a "congrats you defeated this bear" or a "oh no, you encounter a dead bear, why is it dead?" situation, for whatever animal is in question. Knowing my groups they'd probably light it on fire either way.

Red pretty much summed up what I expected too.  There's usually one or two disappointments in every Kickstarter, the sheer number of models makes perfection impossible.  

 

I'm curious if you could use the heat trick to make a Bones animal look dead by heating it over an appropriately sized & shaped surface.  (Shoulders, floor, etc.).   We're much more likely to get a live caribou mini than a dead one.

Experiments could be done on the Bones unicorn or the pack camel (carve off the pack) to see if they can get bent into dead-poses.

Well carrying a dead unicorn would pretty much scream "bad guy" in my group.  Shame there are no Bones deer.

On the subject of dead unicorn screaming bad guy, Giant taking her pet to the local cleric to be resurrected.

Oops.

Yep somehow I did an oops, maybe even a Whoops!

 

A while ago I did my first round of locking in some of my selections in the pledge manager. 

I've gone back in several times to plan out the rest of what I want and what I should lock in next so I can budget.

 

When I went in tonight I noticed that everything I had locked in previously now showed that I had locked in two of each of those things.::o:

 

Don't know how or exactly when that happened. I think I can work with that, but I am concerned I don't do that again as I don't need 3 of each.

There's a bug that makes everything display as if you've ordered double. If you exit out of the manager and reload it it should display correctly. I've seen it a few times (and was hopefully optimistic the first "Bank made an error in your favor, collect free minis"), but it is only a bug.

Not really a bug. 

 

It is a caching issue. Log out, clear your cache and it's fine when you log back in.

That is still a bug.  A bug in the cache, but still a bug.  37 years in computer support so I know bugs.

      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.

      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..."
