Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Giants are my favorite kind of D&D monster.  I'm so excited for these minis and today's update looks great!  One month to go!

The thing that caught my eye was this: "This model's discoloration is a result of the recycled material used in the molding process.  This is not considered a defect." 

 

Can you tell us more about using recycled material? I think it is awesome to reuse and recycle. How much Bones material is recycled plastic as opposed to new? Because if Bones is yanking plastic out of the system to make us fun stuff, I like it even more. Are the blisters also recycled (are they recycleable for that matter)?

Man, I’m sooo glad I added those Frost Giant Raiders to my pledge.   They turned out great!

Love the update... especially since I am getting everything showcased.... One disappointment is the dire lion. Seems a departure from the concept.

I'm glad that little explanation was in there, because when I first saw it, I was going to comment to ask about what the discoloration was, because I couldn't decide if it was the material, paint or light. 

As for using recycled material, I'm guessing that these were test shots, and that Reaper is looking to avoid any noticeable patches of color like this for KS or retail fulfillment, even if they are using recycled.   I can just imagine the sort of emails Reaper Customer Service would get:
"My Bones giant has big red swirls in him! He's defective!"

Probably, but I am curious if the material used in general is recycled. I'd quite like it to be. If that meant that Bones had some funny color swirls, I'm content with that. We paint over it anyway.

I truly don't wish to open old wounds, but I'm still very much in two minds about the Frost Giant Raiders. It may be just the angle that the picture has been taken at, but the face of the Ranger looks rather masculine to me.

She's fierce and vicious and rugged. I think it is fitting. They can't all be princessish like Yephima (awesome, but very different).

I, for one, am very happy that the caribou is still strapped to her back.

I'm a little nervous about the weapons on those Frost Giantesses.  I was hoping to see less bend.  :unsure:  Hard to say if it's an issue or not without seeing it in person, though.

I think the final production shots have come more in line to what the artwork showed, so I am very happy how they came out. The ranger does look a little "boyish", but she did in the concept art too IMHO, so not unhappy about this. I do have one question, was the vote for update for the NEXT update? Seems we all want dreadmere or darkreach:) (they are tied atm), so was shocked to see giants (of course maybe I read the post wrong)

 

NEVERMIND, it does say 1/25 update, sorry.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      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.

      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.
