Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I have two themes picked out for my DoDs, both somehow volcanic. 

1) Icelandic volcano dragon vs lightning dragon - volcanic lightning is crazy neato. Inspired by the eruption in... 2010? 

2) Hawaiian volcano dragon vs tropical dragon - much burning. Inspired by the 2018 Kilauea eruptions. 

 

Nah... who'd'a thunk the rocks nerd would theme things off rocks... no... not predictable at all.

You have painted most of your bones3 minis?   Did you do the first KS as well? 

I finished 1 and 2, but have only painted 1/3 of KS3 core - im still looking at 2 years at current pace.

 

I didn't get the core set of bones4 - just a lot of Dinos, and some extras. (Bring on the BOAT!) 

I was between gainful employment during KS1, sadly, but I did Bones 2 and 3.

I'm going to have to go to Ikea and buy some bigger bookcases.. I noticed the Ikea ones are taller and have 6 shelves than my current Sauder bookcases which only have 5.. .  

Billy bookcases can get glass doors, and you can add extra shelves, too. I have the top half of one as my minis display, with the bottom half for gaming books. I'm going to need to rearrange and buy another one once I get Bones 4 painted up. I'm running out of room.

I'm probably going to start with things that can get popped right into a Ravnica D&D campaign, like armored gobbos.

Ikea has some all glass display cases which I use. they are a nice size and because they are all glass the shelves don't hide any display space.  in addition they have a nice flat top that will support very large displays with ease.  and they are less than $50 each even without a sale making them perfect candidates.  I have 3 and will probably need to pick up a couple more. at least...

Are you referring to the DETOLF? I personally went the BILLY approach, but the DETOLF could be good with some modifications to add more shelves (which there are guides for online). Not sure I'd use them as-is for standard minis.

All I know is, it better be bigger on the inside or else I won’t have the space for it.

Same! :blink:

I suspect I will be able to fit myself in the box, with room to spare. 

There had better be pictures! :lol:

I am thinking it is likely to be terrain. Probably the column toppers for the graveyard....Maybe something from Fantasy Scenics or one of the boats or carts...oh or that sweet portal!

 

Bah! I have no idea!

Oh, yeah, the toppers... Hmm...

My DoD is going to be a simple, simple paint job.  One dragon will be painted as if it were pewter, the other bronze, and the base will painted to look like wood. 

Basically, I'm going to make it look like it's some expensive and heavy piece of artwork like you would find in some posh art gallery.

i think my 2nd DoD, which is going to be a gift to my sister, will be a red vs white dragon. She's a very big fan of game of thrones, so i think she'll like the fire and ice reference

Remind me when I get the box. Then there will be pictures. 

 

My group's cat-herder has been told that I'll be mostly working from home once I get the shipping notification, in hopes that I don't miss the box at the door.

Heads up!

 

I'm out of office most of tomorrow and therefore the Friday update won't be posted until later in afternoon instead of my preferred earlier in morning. 

 

I didn't finish it today before I had to leave and neglected to get the files into the cloud so I could remote in.

 

When my ride gets home, he'll drive me in to office in order to get this done; current meds equal no driving.

No worries @ladystorm! Stay safe and healthy. We can try to be patient in your absence. It might require you bribing the canines with bacon though. :poke:

      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. 
      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.
