Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Anything is removable with a dremel! Mwuhahaha! :devil:

As an alternate solution, I might try to find a halfling hurling a pumpkin. Probably not a readily available mini, but doesn't hurt to look. If I can find that, a couple halflings standing on the pumpkins, some of them hurling them makes an excellent war wagon.

A few pumpkins would be relatively easy to make greenstuff or sculpie clay. I think I'd rather do that than try to separate them from the cart with a xacto knife.

Yeah, I thought about that too. Reaper even has a set of pumpkins, so might just be adding a pre-made pumpkin to a halfling's hand. None are really in a throwing pose that I can find, but I can make it work.

And if we can't, we hassle @Froggy the Great until he spills the beans on Frankensteining halflings :wow:

-You don’t need to even sculpt pumpkins; just go to your local craft store this time of year and look for “Putka pod mini pumpkins”. They’re seed pods that resemble pumpkins when dyed orange. Craft stores sell them for potpourri etc. 

 

i got got a whole canister a couple years ago for half off after Thanksgiving.

And they won't decay? I have a pretty severe mold allergy that triggers CF related symptoms, so I tend to stay away from natural things unless I know they are properly baked and sealed up.

The ones I have are several years old, and show no signs of aging.  Since they are a commercially packaged and sold product ( as opposed to something out of somebody’s backyard), I would assume they are pretty well dried and prepared before being sold to the public as decorations.  That being said, you could always give them a shot of spray varnish just to be sure...

I always do that when dealing with organic stuff.

I use tea. coffee , herbs and real twigs and branches for my bases.

Some are years old like you mentioned as well and haven't decayed.

Coming down to it. The only thing I’m waffling on is the “hut” / izba house. I don’t have much terrain like that, so it might be a fun new thing. No interior is a bit of a con; Still good for wargames though...

gah!

Ummmm....yes? ::):

 

That's a pretty good argument!

 

I was thinking of adding one extra since i do have an extra Blacktooth Terror, the poor Thunderhoof might feel left out for ordering just one.

But just adding this is so lame...

So I might need another thing or two...

On the other hand I already ordered a lot...

Decisions, decisions.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.

       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!
