Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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.

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.

      First time making an opening post for one of these, so if I do it wrong I'm sorry.

      Legendary Dragons: A 5e Supplement
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/782735675/legendary-dragons-a-5th-edition-supplement?ref=user_menu
       
      Red dragons, black dragons, green dragons, gold dragons. They are great, but we’ve seen them before.  What makes a dragon unique among all others of its kin? What is its history, what are its motivations, and most importantly, what makes it legendary? Legendary Dragons answers all this and much, much more!
      Jetpack7 aims to bring back the mystery to Dragons and to make an "ordinary" Dragon encounter... extraordinary!
      12 New Unique Legendary Dragons with Stretch Goals of up to 20 Dragons! We’re cooking up content for your 5th Edition game! You’ll not only have brand new Legendary Dragons and their lore to throw at your players, but some new monsters, too!
      New Dragons New Wyverns New Drakes New Hydras Not only will GMs and Players get 12+ Legendary Dragons (with the option for up to 20), we have some other dragon-related goodies that we are planning:
      New Kobolds New Dragon Races New Lairs Dragon Cults Dragon Riders Dragon Hunters Dragon Hunting Factions Dragon Hunting & Monster Hunting Economies New spell components you can only get by hunting Dragons Enhance existing spells with your new Dragon spell components Dragon hoard Items Dragon Tactics and how to use Dragons effectively in your game! Aerial Combat Options And much, much more… Legendary Dragons is estimated to be at least 100+ pages.
      We also teamed up with some of the best 5E writers in the biz!

      In our earlier supplements, we didn’t skimp on art. In fact, when Jetpack7 was created, we set out with a goal of having the best art in the industry!
      In Legendary Dragons, you can bet on seeing many full-color, full-page, high-quality art pieces produced with the same care and attention as our other supplements.
      Check out some of the Dragon related art we have done for other companies!

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      I was in on the Chibi project they did earlier this year and it was delivered on-time and the quality was good.  This looks like an interesting assortment of figures, including good deals on  bunch of Heartbreaker stuff!
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/impact-miniatures-presents-the-lost-ks-mini-projec?ref=friends_launched
       
      Their synopsis:
       
      Not All Minis go to Heaven
       Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to.  
      Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end.   
      Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day.  
      Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run.     
      We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere!

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification
