Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Having worked in client services for a long time I can say 

“we got 100 emails about this”

sounds more impactful then

”some people posted on the forum”

and we can also do both. I don't see why we have to do one or the other. It helps to vent our disappointment to each other as well, and it'll help me compose a more calm email to Reaper when i can vent my real feelings here. 

I'm flat chested. I don't take it personally that 98% of female miniatures out there are huge busted and that is the only 'sexy' way to be female in this gaming world. I don't care about that. I don't care that according to the standards set by everything in the media and gaming and everywhere else, 'i'm not 'sexy' 

 

what i DO care about is that 98% of those female miniatures out there are so horribly armored in spandex-armor that wouldn't do anything to protect them but shows maximum boobs, or in armor plates that have boob shaped bumps hammered into them for maximum boob exposure. I hate that. I really do. It makes 0 sense, it's only there so that they're 'sexy'

 

i just liked that FOR ONCE a miniature broke the mold of what is normal and sexy. They had armor. I don't care what size the boobs underneath were. They had actual ARMOR. For battle. Real armor that covered them like armor would. Not spandex-armor that contoured to their bodies unrealistically, not boob shaped breastplate to show off as much as possible

 

they had real armor, they looked like real actual warriors, and i liked it.  That is what people had been asking for.

And then Reaper does a 180, removes the armor, to show maximum boob and gives them contour spandex armor. The very thing i despise in female miniatures but have to deal with anyways because no one wants to make a real woman warrior apparently, and if i want to paint or use a female miniature i have to use what is standard, aka large and unarmored boobs on an otherwise armored female warrior

 

it just sucks that they decided to go so far away from what they had shown us, from what people had asked for. 

I'm not trying to personaly attack you. I could take every big busted woman miniature as a personal attack against my figure, but i don't. I care about the fact they took something that was different, that was unique and new, that was often requested by fans...and turned it into more of the same that 98% of the genre already is.

I didn’t say people had to do one or the other. 

It just looks like people want to repeat the same complaint on the forum and that’s it.

 

if people are so concerned and upset I guess I don’t understand why no one can take a few minutes to organize an email subject like for everyone to use, post it here and in the comments and say “hey we are sending emails voicing concerns”

I agree Guindy. I don't think the malice is warranted.

On a different bones subject,

did anyone else think the giant demon couple would make interesting faun type creatures without the wings? 

I’ve tried modding bones in the past and it’s normally pretty comical and never gets finished.

Guindyloo, your reaction is exactly the sort of thing I'm going for. A protest that doesn't offend or inconvenience those who are happy with the status quo will never be effective. You should organize an email campaign to Reaper to complain about our opinions being expressed.

 

My only complaint about your response is your assertion that we are somehow shaming large breasted women. No one here has attacked large breasted women. I'm not even sure that there are humans that don't love breasts, in all their sizes and shapes. Our complaints have been in the unnecessary expulsion of breasts through and around armor. Cup size is not the issue, it's exposure. Any amount of breast tissue, smooshed behind actual armor, contours to the armor. That is what we asked for, that was what we were offered, and that is not what was presented after they had our money.

While the disappointment on translation from concept art to actual model is on topic, yall are dancing on that line that will get your conversation relocated to Bees into one of the Women's Body threads.

 

Please stay on topic.

yes, having seen them as they came off the printer, I can see that mod being pretty easy to accomplish.

more so for her, than for him.

I hadn't thought about that conversion as my attempts at modding are also typically pretty comical, but they would be really lovely fauns. :wub:

I tried modding a male giant to a female but in involved me stabbing myself and I gave up. I’m hoping filling wing holes is easier

They would make a great pair of nature gods.  Or paint them up in bronze as statues of Satyrs.  I may consider backing them now.  I rarely use Demons/Devils

Well next time try not stabbing yourself and see if that works out better. ::P:

Stabbing self is not recommended in general. I don't think blood makes a good primer. Does it? 

 

Also, lacking wings would potentially be an easy mod, depending on what else is on the back. If it is a tangled mess of hair like my Dark Sword demoness, it would be tough. If it is a shirt or something, much easier.

      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)

      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      Project: Captain Redbeard's Pirate Dwarves
       
      About this project
      Avast me hearties! Splice the mainbrace and beat to quarters, that galleon is bilged on her anchor and ripe for the picking! Bring us alongside Gibbs. Boomer, get ready on the gun! Pete my boy, are you loaded? Hefty, Sharktooth, Deadeye, follow me! Gyaaarh! 

        This project is to fund production of a pirate dwarf crew, a set of unique miniatures forming a warband of adventuring buccaneers for skirmish gaming or a unit of mercenary fighters in a larger dwarf army. 
      They are 28mm metal miniatures, sculpted by Mark Evans, who produced all the dwarf sculpts in our previous kickstarter. 

        This time we have decided to offer only one pledge level, with all stretch goals being free additions to the set. If you want multiple sets just increase your pledge amount accordingly. 
      Pledge price includes FREE SHIPPING in the UK and discounted shipping of just £2 for anywhere else worldwide.
       If successfully funded each backer will receive one each of Captain Redbeard's crew plus any applicable stretch goals- 
      1. Cap'n Redbeard   2. Bo'sun Gibbs   3. Deadeye Dan  
      4. Hefty Hawkins      5. Slick Willie         6. Sharktooth Jack
      7. Pigwash    8. Little Pete      9. Boomer Svensson and Swivel Gun
       The Captain himself. As gnarly a swashbucking, treasure-hungry dwarf as you could ever hope to meet. He'll fight anyone and anything if there's a promise of doubloons which makes his crew a useful mercenary force to bolster any dwarf army (just don't pay him in advance).
       The captain's trusted Bo'sun, often found leading boarding parties or manning the ship when the captain takes a raiding party ashore.
       His aim is as good with his axe as with his pistol, as many an enemy has found out
       Avast behind! The crew will often mutter about hefty, but not within earshot of him. If you have a door to kick down, a bear to wrestle or a sandwich to eat, he's your man.
       The general opinion among the crew is the Willie fancies himself, with his goatee, ponytail and feather in his hat, he cares a bit too much about his appearance.
       Sharktooth is just a thorough git, a complete thug with a pair of wicked short knives that earned him his nickname. 
       Rumour has it that Pigwash was once captain of his own ship, nobody knows for sure and nobody likes to ask because of that big axe he carries around.
       The smallest of the crew, some say he's overcompensating but with his blunderbuss he can clear a deck or blow a dwarf sized hole in a city gate.
       He's got you covered, the swivel gun is small enough that the crew will often take it ashore for some extra firepower.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
