Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

It looks like I'm ending up at about $2.42 per mini for 250 total, but I didn't get a core set, I just took the figures that I wanted the most piecemeal so I could spend more on the large/huge figures that were higher priority since for the most part, I'm going to want the human sized figures in metal instead. I still have a few more things in my cart, but I might not get those now because y'all made me add up my previous 3 orders and yikes. :lol:

No no... don't blame us for not getting stuff. Get the things you want!! 

 

I do agree about wanting the human size stuff in metal instead. Bones is best for big figures I think. And mmmm so many good big ones!

How likely is it that new human sized bones will get remolded and cast in metal?  I'm conscious of having metal figures redone in Bones, but I'm not aware of any instances were the reverse is true.  It may just be that I haven't been paying attention though... :huh:

There have already been a few models from Bone 4 released in metal.  Check out DHL SKUs 03848 and higher.

Just ordered her!

 

I think the sci-fi dinomen are also out in metal, as well as some of the female fighters.

A good number of the character size models released in bones end up in metal. If you look at the metal DHL line in the online store and sort by sku down,  you'll get an idea.

Just did - saw some more dino folk, townsfolk, and penguins at least. I probably will hold off on them until I find them necessary, although they are great. After all, plastic ones are only several months away.... not like I don't have 20 minis to paint. 20 boxes of minis to move.... ahh crud that might be too literal.

Core looks transposed should be 163

chrono 38

Darkreach 45

At least that's what I get from the pledge manager pictures. The other expansions look right, and I'll take your word for the add on's:)

I know we sprue small things together,  the actual number is very probably somewhere between the two for core and would account for those expansions. 

 

As I'm sitting at my gate ready to board for Origins, I am not going to fine tune the numbers right now.  Remind me mid-July when I expect more unclaimed time and I'll see what I can do then.

I love the human sized Bones in terms of making gaming a friendlier hobby.   I've given away a few dozen Bones character figures to people I play games with, without any remorse. I would never do that with metal. 

 

I'm at about $1.50/mini.  If I add 2-3 more core sets, I can get that down to about a $1/mini.

Absolutely. The human size Bones are great for new painters, and excellent for throwing on a table. I have used metal for so long though that I prefer it for gift pieces, even for tabletop. My players also know that if they wreck my paintjob I, the DM, will drop a meteor on them.

Going by what's in my cart at the moment, I'll have 28 figures, at $11.80 each, but I'm mainly wanting the big ones like most of the dragons...

      this is a reprint of the well regarded boardgame  Caustrophobia (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36932/claustrophobia) and it's first expansion with all new art assets and minis (unpainted)
       
      Monolith has already manufactured the game so it will be limited to 10,000 copies *I;ve asked and there are spares to cope with loss/damage during delivery)and deliveries are scheduled for January so minimal risk so ideal is you want to KS but worry about getting stung (but on the other hand if you don't like KS as a shop probably not for you)

      This one just went up. Seems like a smaller studio with some cool sculpts. The cost per figure seems reasonable, although shipping is a bit of a bummer.

      The book looks great!
       
      Also, the ala cart minis are a nice touch!
