Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

So here is my plan:

I'm cleared by the surgeon to be back in the office for less than 4 hours a day. Preferring to work mornings, I leave at noon.

 

As soon as we can get the images to upload into the update, I'll post it. (yes, now assigned to me) 

Once posted, I need to supervise on the floor for a project.

If time permits, I'll return to my office to answer questions, monitor comments, that kind of thing.

Then I leave for my weekend.

So I thought there was something BIG coming for this update? Was it Argent or the nomination? (Congrats on that by the way!) Man, just to be a completist, I may actually order Chronoscope IF i have an extra fifty bucks next month (or before the 3rd of September, it could happen haha). I mean, they seem to be hammering that one a bit, so I may just get em to say "yah, I got all the expansions from Bones IV":rolleyes:

Talking of the Fan Favourites expansion; Was it ever decided if the centre of the Mystic Portal will be clear or opaque plastic?

I do not remember that coming up on the livestream or anything recently. Maybe @Reaper Ron can shed some light::D:

That is a great question that we can't answer yet.

We won't know which way it is going to go until we see the production proofs.

Lalalalalala... I can’t hear you! ::P:

 

You have to stop talking that way! That’s the only one I’m missing too...and the urge is strong to remedy that. Must resist. Just wish it had a little more “Wow” in it like the other sets. 

 

 

  And, hmmm, the Frost Giant... I’ll say this, in general the details on her are beautiful!   And on a positive note, the offending areas certainly look like they’d be easy enough to slice right off they are so clearly defined and undercut. Or it also looks like it would be super easy to greenstuff in all the gaps, both between and under, to make the lay of the fabric look a little bit more natural.

So I am looking at the concept art...then I look at the figure...then I look at the concept. First, do not get me wrong, it is great concept art, but now that I see both I feel that the figure DOES look like a frost giant, and (and I think I thought this when the art was out, but never said) the concept art... I dunno, more looks to be Barbarians? They look just too on the light side to be Giants IMHO. 

 

As for the extension of PM, it's just making it harder NOT to be complete and get Chronoscope. And I keep getting more ideas to use them in some kind of Diorama setting:

309-311 - I could either do some kind of Mars Attacks or (using  310) some kind of Captain Pike Star trek dio. Does anyone know of a good Pike stand in, and weena (or whatever her name is, she reminds me of Weena from Time Machine)

319 -  I could saw off the horns and spiky bits, and do a Jesse Ventura mini, after all I am sure he has no time to bleed and would make a great sexual tyrannosaur!::P:

327 and 328 - a Metropolis dio?

321 - ooh, a monsters inc! Dio :rolleyes:

Not sure what to do with the rest, maybe just practice techniques or *gasp* put them on that bay place:rolleyes:

Do you have a rough idea of when you may see those proofs that you can share with us?

Question. Important one.

 

You're in Texas...

 

If I remember correctly, production is in China...

 

Will the War of Escalating Tariffs affect Reaper and/or Bones 4 in any way?

      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:
