Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Given that the minis can be made in any color, does that mean even the translucent minis in the expansions are "Bones Black"?

As it happens this was answered in the last Reaper Live show at the 27:16 mark in response to a question asked by an obviously very intelligent and no doubt handsome viewer. -_-

 

Short answer yes.

Bones Black translucents were shown in the Feb.1st update and will also be shown in a future Reaper Live episode.

The terrapin is, but I wouldn't worry too much. The owlbear isn't as easy to slice up (I trimmed some edges and cleaned mine) but it is still easier than metal. Unless you really want to be chopping the terrapin into stew meat, I don't think you'll have too much trouble. 

Thanks! That's really good to know. ^_^ I was just gonna change up their equiment a bit so they aren't so samey samey.

I want to say that one one of the Reaper Lives they said they could make translucent Bones Black but I don't recall if they said these would be them.  So I wouldn't be surprised if they were.  But don't hold me to that.

Is it wrong that I now wish for a limited production resin edition of the pack turtle?

I have an urge to put a small boy on it - dangling a carrot from the end of a string tied to a stick.

I've been thinking about this for a few days but have been unable to think of the proper word for it- whats the word for like a litter/palanquin type seat (covered) that goes on an animal's (like an elephant) back? I feel like I've only seen it in cartoons and it's vastly impractical, but I'd still like to see one that's on the pack terrapin.

Yes, absolutely, I've been clamouring for a howdah on the back of the tortoise since the minute I saw the artists sketch. 

 

This figure has so much potential, a wide variety of loads for different genres/periods could be added, a palanquin for wounded adventurers, a miniature swivel gun or harpoon,,, the only limit to the items that Reaper could add are our imaginations.

Your comment made me think of having a young boy hanging by his belt from the tortoise's mouth! Would make a light hearted chuckle.

I made the mistake of adding up all my  Bones 4 orders yesterday ... :lol:

 

But the exciting part is, when this box arrives, the status of my D&D game will jump from "miniatures for the most important enemies and ofc for the player characters, the rest gets a paper stand in" to "miniatures for ALL the things". This core set really is great at bulking up a game master's repertoire, and together with the fantasy expansions it hits a lot of common game situations. Holes still left, like more skeletons or dragons, are easily filled with what's already available in Bones.

 

I may need to change my shopping strategy now, I'm no longer in the stage of needing basically everything, I'm sure that's gonna happen

I had to quote this so I could because the forum wouldn't let me like it again!

There is no information if our Bones caught their ship, is there? 

 

And it would be interesting to know which Bones are the late arrivals, but I get why they don't announce that. "I'm not even getting set xyz, just send my stuff out already!!!!"

I figure we'll be told whether or not they did in the next update.  If they missed their ship, there's not much any of us can do about it.

      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.
