Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

At this point, based upon how many of my minis  from Bones 1, 2, and 3 have been painted, my Bones 4 figures will be painted by my granddaughters. :B):

Spartan statues will be really great for anyone practicing skin, plus they are bigger so it’s eaiser to see.

I looked through my stash of Bones 2 minis yesterday and can proudly say that I painted about ... 50 of them (in addition to other minis like Zombicide etc). I have painted one or two minis from Bones 3 ... so ... I can't wait for Bones 4 to arrive ;)

 

The barge is great, I might add another one so I have two: one to leave in the original state, the other to see if any and how much bash-kitting is possible.

Someday I will paint dragons don’t share and the worlds biggest undead dragon lol.

 

out of curiosity, where do people put their HUGE models? Do you have a designated shelf? I have a display cabinet but it’s an antique and I think a dragon would take up  half the shelf.

Honestly, when they arrive and get painted.... I have no idea. I'll be living in a shoebox. Good chance some will have to go on my ceiling.

I’m  trying really hard to resist getting more, because the Harryhausen fan in me wants to have the marble statues, the bronze ones, the golden ones, the silver ones, etc....

 

 

Remember that the Greeks are thought to have painted their marble statues to be more realistic looking. (The world's first maxiatures.)

 

I wonder how smooth their blends were?

 

:rolleyes:

Paint? No, for a mosaic look, you should really use glitter, applied one bit at a time.

 

It's the Vegas way.

Most of them live on my mantel.   My Spawn are allowed to play with those, as long as they are returned. 

 The PF dragon fits in the small display cabinet on my desk. (middle shelf) - it has elaborate/delicate basing. 

The DDS dragon has moved to the mantel and the kingdom death Phoenix perches on top the case instead.

At the moment all of my minis big and small live on tv trays set up in the corner of my gaming room, where the DM sits so he can grab anything he needs.... 

 

Of course, when Bones 4 gets here I'll be more than tripling the number of minis, and more than octupling (8x) the number of large and above minis... so I plan on setting up shelves in the GM's corner of the room to hold all of the minis.. I'm thinking the shelves will start roughly a foot away from each window at the height of the TV trays and go up by a foot or a foot and a half per shelf. The huge ones will probably all end up on one of the higher shelves/the top shelf.

I haven't painted any of my large minis. For one thing, I'm moving in less than a year, so I don't fancy just packing them away after they've been put together and painted. And when I do get them together and painted, I'd like to have one (or more) of those nice IKEA glass shelves to put them in. I do have a wide wall shelf that they could fit in now. But... above listed issues.

FYI, Craigslist and Swip-Swap groups are great for things like Detolf display cases and Kallax storage shelves.

 

Those store my board games, and my display minis.

 

I am planning to get more Kallax shelves along with Alex drawers for storing my plano trays of minis and my terrain.

The only good thing about being made to traipse around IKEA with my dear wife is that I get to plan more units to store figures in.

 

Oh, and buy meatballs and gravlax!

      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:
