Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Well, counting each of the pieces in the Modern Scenics as a 'figure', and breaking out the barge as eight pieces, that puts me at 277 figures @ $1.48/ea.  Trying to be good and resist getting any more of the Expansion sets (although I REALLY want the dinosaurs)!

Ok, thanks to Ladystorm's and Ratmaster2000's kindly input, I did the calculations and it appears I'm at 363 minis at $1.18 per mini.  ::):

 

I had to make some judgment calls, like the Tree of Despair I counted as 1, since it's intended to all (tree, victims, vultures)be assembled into one piece; but the Barge I counted as 8, since the passengers, lost souls, and driver are all separate figures.   I guess it all averages out...

 

 

Those seem like reasonable numbers.

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.

I'm not done pledging yet so I will hold off on the calculation . . . ::D:

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      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 $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (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.

      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:
