Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Always great to watch those Reaper Live episodes and see "my" Bones models on the turn table. 

They are real! People are touching them! :wub:

 

I'm not trying to be difficult or anything, but with Brexit looming at the end of march, it's scary to think what happens if there won't be a deal being made. I know from reading the last time around that Bones III took quite some time to arrive in the UK, and then shipment from there, ofc, also took some time.

In theory, there is supposed to be a grace period until 2020, but noone can tell you right now if there won't be a hard Brexit. In that case the stuff would be taxed from the US to the UK hub, and then again to the EU countries. In my case, that would be 19% taxes + x% duty (depending on what "type" the customs officer places those Bones in), which would be a lot of money.

I get what you're afraid off, so am I.

On the other hand, there is even talk of not going into Brexit after all, it's all unclear.

 

I think Reaper will deliver soon, and at least this year.

 

I'm looking forward to the loot.

In case I wasn't the only person to miss it:  The new Reaper Live Episode on Youtube (#14, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMTR_Ofm7z4) shows off a number of the Bones 4 pieces.  I got really excited because at 27:50 they pulled out the Portal!  There's definitely enough room to throw a mini through.

 

Also, @ladystorm, since I thought this was a contradiction to what we already knew, can you confirm what Ron says at 30:25 about the Portal?

WUT?

That would be awesome!

Same!

 

Fan favourites is one I hemmed and hawed about for a while but I'm very glad I went for it in the end!

I picked this one up no problem, as a matter of fact I picked up all the expansions and core set. The one I kept till the end though was chronoscope, was the smallest of all expansions and did not have a lot of wow factor, but I do not have ANY of the mini's so I figured why not. Besides, I have many conversion ideas lined up for quite a few (especially one in particular which doesn't have time to bleed!)

Chronoscape was the longest choice for me too. I haven't been doing anything scifi for years now. But I decided at the last minute there were enough unique and interesting minis in it to make it worth it. I've been stockpiling Bones for all future gaming situations.

The Chronoscope one is the only one that I didn't go in for. I don't really mind; I'm not that into the sci-fi stuff. They'll end up in retail if I want them, and the ones I like the most in the set are also in metal now (unless I'm mistaken) - the spacedinopeople. Very glad I went in for the others though!

Now who wants to guess which figure from Chronoscope is going to be kitbashed into Jesse Ventura:)

I am starting to get really seriously excited. The games I've run during the last two weeks have really needed stuff from this KS.

I'm currently on enforced furlough. Reeeeally looking forward to the upcoming box so I can have something to do with myself. Enforced furlough might not end for a while...

GAh.. so much kickstarter all due! I'm looking forward to the Reaper DOOMBOX, even if I have no idea where I'm gonna put it all.

But! DOOMBOX! *rubs hands together* Worth the wait...

I left chronoscope in the end, while I like sci-fi as a genre none of my friends are interested in playing any sci-if rpgs so they’d have just been adding to my painting pile with no particular purpose. There were a couple of models I did really like the look of, but like Cyradis said, I can always get those at retail if I want them later.

I got two expansions, didn't bother with Lost World, Chronoscope, or Fan Favorites. I wanted about 25-30 % of Fan Favorites, but I just couldn't do the price of it, even if I might have been able to sell a lot of it in the secondary market. I also figured that several of the minis I liked I'd probably prefer to get in pewter anyway.

 

I'm looking forward to delivery. I have gotten through most of my Bones 3 miniatures, though I've been on hiatus due to a job change and having to work to get some licenses for the new job. So, unlike with Bones 3 arriving after I'd already finished Bones 2, I actually have some minis left in the queue, though they're mostly humanoids that I prefer to save in case they wind up being needed for a player character at some point...

      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!
