  1. Well, I really feel they will be splitting the core (If you did it with the ants, I am hoping they will do all AND add the queen in the breakout), but if not I MAY just get one core and sell off/trade what I don't have interest in (Like those zombies).

    I still want to sculpt Eddie someday, but...IP.


    JUST DO IT! After all, didn't seem to bother HEX3D 🙂 Come on, Iron Maiden and Bruce Dickinson (Yes, the REAL Bruce Dickinson) would probably be flattered!

    You can sculpt him all you want, you just can’t sell him 🤣

    I am sure no one would mind:)


    Seriously, I'd love to see an expansion/add-on of Eddie from different Album Covers! I worked at Music Plus back in the day, and Iron Maiden's Live after Death album had just came out. When the promo was over, I was allowed to take a bunch of the posters home. I had three of them  over my bedroom window. Loved working there.

    No, that is GW. Reaper puts melons on anything that is female. 


    Reaper does like their skulls and undead. Won't really put them on figures that they have no place being on.

    With 2 weekly games I don't care if I have integrated or basic bases these days. I'm just glad the Reaper oval fits on  round base. I'm definitely not a fan of that style of base shape.


    While I like having the minis similar to the actual base size stated in the 5e books, if it's a little over or under, I'm not gonna scrap the mini because of it. One of my Weds players is a necromancer & he can summon up a minotaur skeleton CR, so he picked up the large based but oversized Pathfinder Deep Cuts minotaur & it can look odd on the grid at times, I'm not gonna say he can't use it. It's large size base & he bought it for the game. Now if it was a huge base, then yes I'd ask if for a more appropriate mini.


    I wonder if the fulfillment date might get closer due to not as minis in this KS then before?

    Most of my mini's are display, competition and or sale so I go with whatever base is most thematic. I also have access to many Base STL files and many happy seppuku molds. Yes, early fulfillment would be nice, especially since some will be Bones USA allegedly.

    I like the new bases having something on them as opposed to just being plain, but I'd prefer that they were separate from the figure.

    Having the base be planks or cobblestones or whatever isn't helpful if I want my adventurers to be in the woods.

    Pegs on feet and corresponding holes on the base would be the best of both worlds, IMO.

    You be surprised what an x-acto or hobby saw can do:)

    The wall looks nice. Thought why they would have a statue of a skeletal pharos I don't know.


    I am all about undead, so this is cool. Maybe someone is an Iron Maiden fan?

    *sigh* I wish it still had the two axes or at least a sword and axe (or two swords). Don't think it is going to happen though, as Ed said he liked the sword and board look (that was his reply to my question about getting options to swap out the shield if possible).

  6. I still use my .4 nozzle as well, what I think helps is I print everything at .15 layer height (at least I think that is what it is in cura haha) and 10-15 percent infill. Granted most of my FDM printing is terrain pieces. The only real reliable models I find that work great mini's wise are from artists that specifically work toward making the model FDM friendly. Honestly, the only one I have found that hits that mark has been Arbiter miniatures. His undead is awesome. Busts seem to come out well on FDM, and are more affordable then resin (and you don't have the issues associated with hollowing in resin).

    This is my view. I don’t want more adventurers unless they are unusual and underrepresented figures. Or at least female. Like, I just don’t need another bare chested male human barbarian. 

    I think having a core set that has more monsters and weird things and then an adventurers set would fill out both needs. Or maybe it is time to retire the core and lean harder into the expansions. Have the “core” pledge be two expansions of your choice or 1 expansion and 2 encounters. Then can split things up thematically a bit more. Can still do a “fan favourites” or whatever that is a mixed bag. 

    YES! we need more female representation ! I would love to see some bare chested female barbarians😆J/K

    Here's the owlbear encounter!  Love those cubs!

    I almost thought this was the bones black owlbear, but it is a different sculpt.

    Looks like Momma owlbear is pretty similar in style to the one from B5 Dungeon Dwellers.  Curious to see how they compare size-wise.


    Which I found odd, as this model along with a few others, had already been released in Bones Black and were added to the Kickstarter.

    Just putting this out there in the context of current events as they affect the current Bones Kickstarter, with no political subtext intended or implied:

    Just tried to fill up the family sedan, using a $50 bill for the task.  We live in the part of Nevada with some of the least expensive gas in the state, plus I used a ten cents a gallon discount from the grocery store we frequent and it still sucked up the whole $50 and only brought it up to just past the 3/4 mark.

    This is putting a significant dent in what I can afford to set aside for the current Bones Kickstarter. 

    I'm sure there are quite a few other people who find themselves in similar circumstances.

    I'm in better shape than a lot of people as my disability pension has a COLA clause that saw a significant raise come my way in January, but it is being eaten up at the gas pump and now at the cash register every time I go to the store, leaving ever fewer dollars for "frivolities" such as kickstarter campaigns.



    I definitely feel you on this one. I have a newer vehicle which uses E85, so gas is cheaper BUT this stuff was below 3 bucks before all this world craziness. And I only have this vehicle because someone hit the family in our old car, and now our insurance is higher, so kind of negates any savings:( Yah, my wife got that COLA increase this year too, but my VA didn't:( However, I see they have changed how they categorize  tinnitus and it is now viewed as a by product NOT a main cause. I am praying I can finally have my rating upgraded and classify my hearing loss as service related.

    Anywho, I digress, so to get back on point I personally have one other view that (for me anyways) affects how I feel about the kickstarters. When bones 1 & 2 came out, the basic line was how expensive the steel molds costs and how the kickstarter would help with that and EVENTUALLY would be brought stateside. Then Bones 3 and 4 came and it was still overseas. Then when 4 and 5 came (maybe just 5?), bones black was a thing and the molds were not interchangeable, and then after 5 and here in 6, stuff is in OG bones, Bones Black, and NOW bones USA, and they ALL non interchangeable. Now I can totally see that USA is geared more towards mini's and NOT big mini's and terrain, but having 3 different mediums mixed in a kickstarter seems odd to me. USA shouldn't need a big infusion because it is similar to metal spin casting, and Black is supposed to be superior to OG, so I am trying to understand why we are supporting all 3 in a kickstarter that is supposed to get us new steel molds? If it is just black and USA, that would make more sense. Can black NOT handle big models as well as OG?

  8. I think the biggest thing they should have done for the core set, (and this is just MHO) was NOT have the zombies be the bonus. There were so many other cool things they could have chose and they (IMO) were the weakest (for me anyway).


    At this point, I may be in for only the sullenhall and the ants probably. Nothing against any of the mini's, great as always, but as others have said, with THREE core sets at my disposal there is not much I need for normal adventures. Now as everyone has said, if there was something niche, I may change my mind. Since ants got split out, I am hoping more gets that treatment (I really want those sophies). Am disappointed that the queen is not in the breakout:( 


    I am also disappointed there are no busts,kaiju or 3 stage adventurers (Ron verified that on a recent reaper live when I asked. He said they showed it last year and it MAY be shown or probably NOT AT ALL). And what happened to the cool "encounters" idea from 5?

  9. Those are all awesome sculpts, but is that last one on sale from a company? Because it looks familiar...:)


    oh yah, I have printed this one. Great bust from White Werewolf Tavern, I was on their Patreon for a while, then they started to have issues. But they have great models when they are on it, like this one for example:


    and here's one from Daybreak (I know, elf, sorry)


    I would buy busts like this all day if reaper had some in their Kickstarter!

    I might even be from 1st edition, it's a older Dragon cover. Number 119 to be exact.


    Anther encounter I'd love to see is this one, anther favorite fantasy picture (oddly both from the same artist Daniel R Horne)



    Oh man, loved this cover from back in the day. I may even still have it, if the magazines didn't get damaged or tossed:(

  11. Well, not entirely Bones 6 Kickstarter related, but I just realized I am not sitting on 100 projects pledged on kickstarter:( Hmm, I may have a problem. Now, onto B6 specifically, I know personally, B6 started out with nothing I really wanted/needed but when the shadows expansion hit they finally pulled me in:) I love undead (skeletons especially), so I think I'll definitely be getting that one. NOW, as others have said, if they split up the core set I will definitely be getting some ants! Hopefully we get some THEM! sized ants, but I guess I'll take what I can get:)


    I may not like EVERYTHING reaper is putting out, but that is the beauty of these Kickstarters, there is always SOMETHING I like. As long as they keep doing that, I am in!

  12. I have only seen a few things that I liked (like the ants, but not being "THEM" sized, even that interest is small), and a lot of the stuff they show, I have found in 3D already. 3D also allows resizing if needed. The tavern for example hasn't shown anything I don't already have access to, even the barmaid just shown is already something I have something similar to.

    While looking at my past purchases from MMF I noticed I bought a bunny rogue that was a better rep for one of my player's rogue character, I printed that yesterday. Afterwards, printed up a Yuan-ti/medusa (half human/half tail body type) sorceress stand in & was worried a bit as she is a slightly complex, bigger figure then I've been printing. I checked the print before I left for work tonight, & it appears I've got a print to clean up in the morning. :winkthumbs:


    So I didn't clean the print when I got home this morning, but I did before I left for tonight's FLGS game. As I thought the figure was a large size figure, I was worried that it wouldn't print right. Much to my surprise she was medium size but slightly larger figure due to her tail half. Figure is from Epic Miniatures. I wanna say this is only the 2nd figure I've printed from them (first was their version of the catoblepas, anther reason why I was worried about the failure as I had a hell of time getting that figure to print correctly).




    Her skirt kinda gives me that, "oh crap her legs didn't print feel", even after seeing the sculpt in person, but it's just that a skirt that covers her front half. There is a little bit of mis-print near the area where it'll glue to a base on the back, so I'm not worried about it. She'll make a great end boss for side mission in my Weds Night "Saltmarsh" campaign.



    This is the bunny rogue, even has a eyepatch, as my player's rogue is a ex-pirate.



    Which month/set from epic is that medusa from? I thought I had all of their sets, but I fail to remember that one:( Funny, I don't recall have failures with epic before.
