    Got my Wave 3 shipping notices today (3 grey ships, items in the last container). 

    I also won a water-damaged Bones 5 Core Set on Reaper Live tonight. It’s been a pretty good day for once. 

    Figures, the one night I miss a show (in my defense I was sick and sleeping all day haha), and they give away damaged boxes.

    **US Bones V KS USA News**
    Fire marshal approved the things! We spent the afternoon prepping the warehouse again for fulfillment, restocking numbers and getting stations stocked up for a big day tomorrow. It's home stretch time, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    So, are you saying that Reaper bones 5 is "fire marshal approved!" :)

    My initial thought was to spray paint the entire ship with a base layer of brown, but I also thought perhaps this would be time for me to experiment with an air brush.  I've never used one before and don't know a single thing about an air brush.  My biggest concern is that I don't want any areas to be overpainted (too thick).  I know there is a risk of this happening with spray paint, so I am wondering if this could also be a risk with an air brush in the hands of a newbie?

    Use Badger's stynlrez, it works great.

    Not just that, at least for me, but the cost to get into using an airbrush is a bit daunting if you want one that's quality. I've seen some cheap alternatives, but not sure if I want to venture into it or not.

    If you don't want to spend the money on Vex, get a badger 105, it is a great starter airbrush. Then get a compressor like a california air tools CAT-6s, it is a great compressor and not noisy at all.

  4. So, just got my box and it seems I did go lighter this kickstarter (even with the last minute addition of Chronoscope). Still need to do fine inventory of things, but everything item wise seems there (now I got to go through expansions and stuff to make sure all parts are there). 

    Two things I noticed 1)So, sophie's dice was NOT in the core set box, correct? So the set should have been loose in the shipment? 2) did anyone else who ordered the new colors have their lotus orange seem almost empty? I weighed all the other bottles and they were .9 oz while the orange was .5 oz. And it was the only one with a grey cap. And the busts seemed smaller then I thought they would be. I'll have more observations once I get into everything.

    I agree with both of the above. I got the busts for 2 reasons:

    1) To show an interest and hopefully convince Reaper to make more.

    2) They're inexpensive enough that if I paint one or two, decide it's not really my thing, and never do another one, it wasn't a very costly experiment.


    I would have preferred a little variety in what was offered, though. Three elves isn't really super exciting. An elf, a dwarf, and an orc would've been better, IMO.

    If you don't want them, I'll gladly take them.


    I think this is the main reason why I didn't get those. I've seen one already at RCON, had it in my hand & even back then I was eh oh on it. I've seen & bought a few busts, those just didn't capture my interest at all. I agree with the better variety thou, I think that would have helped more sales on those. Heck even a helmeted warrior would have been a better choice. 


    If Reaper doesn't do more busts in the future, I've got a couple 3d printers & almost all the 3d retailers offer busts, some are pretty reasonable too.

    Two great patreons for busts come to mind: Loot studios (okay, a subscription not a patreon, but all there stuff is awesome) and Clay Cyanide. White werefolf tavern has had some good ones.

    Those WizKid bases are barely even bases st all. 👀

    I just toss 'em in a box for the day I find a use for them

    Seriously. They're flimsier than gluing a figure to a penny. 

    Pennies are what I use under the base to weigh my mini's down:)

    The less stuff comes on sprues, or with stuff to cut away, the better! I was just preparing a figure and as I snipped the head, it jumped away from me, presumably into the void, never to be seen again.

    ... Bring on the Bones instead.

    When you clip them, cut them into a small box, that way they do not go far.

    One of my favorite sneaky hacks is to take a figure with an integral base (that I don’t care about), and so as to not add height, is to flip a reaper base over, set the integral base down in the reaper one, then base the figure and cover it over. 

    Yup, I have done that on a few of my mini's, looks really cool and gives them more depth:)


    Recently though, I have jumped onto both of Casper Gad's base kickstarters (I actually did the commercial tier on both) so I will be using those now (previously I was using reaper's lipped bases and using milliput and happy seppukku base stamps). I really enjoy these, and they look great off my FDM printer (most of the rest are really detailed and would be better off a resin printer)

  7. So, I just thought I'd pop in here (I didn't get a ship, and probably will not, where the 'ell would I put it), and ask a question.

    So, Sophie's revenge IS a pirate ship, correct?

    It's a 32 Gun ship (capable of 32 guns, 32 mounts correct?)

    It comes with 20 guns, but everyone wants the full 32?

    It's not a ship of the line, it's a pirate ship, would a true pirate ship have a full complement of guns?

    Just wondering.

    I'm sorry i didn't see your question on live last night. I do no know if the bust will be coming to retail, but I can say that they arn't in the 5.5 PM because they didnt sell to well during the initial KS. The retail question is so far out that I dont know what will be released and when at this point, But I will do my best to keep asking and have a list of things to see if we can compile it to say "Yes retail" or No Retail" ETC. At this juncture I don't think any higher up decisions have been made regarding that. 

    And any chance to get the images like we had for bones 4? That would help.

    I hope these turn out well and that they go to retail. Bust painting is intimidating to get into, especially because the larger display figures tend to be quite pricey. Bones busts could be a great niche for starter busts to help people decide if they like the style of painting. 

    There are a lot of 3D patreons that offer busts, so there is that:)

  9. So I asked this question TWICE on LIVE, and no response so I am asking here:


    Can we please get a page with all the bones 5 stuff showing pictures like we did on bones 4? It would help greatly to inventory our stuff, especially NONE of the power ups are on Kickstarter AND they are NOT in PM 5.5


    Also, will Bust collection come to retail seeing as it is not in PM 5.5, which I assume was because it was not popular?

    @Reaper_Jonand @Reaper Ron can you help on this? Thanks.

    When I get mine you'll get pictures of Lizard on Boat :poke:

    I thought we were getting pictures of Cyradis in a box::o:

    (and Yes, if we get that, we'll get pictures of Paul in a box again, he's all excited)

  11. the 2nd half of Shav, bust collection (which is what I was missing), the ghost ship and dragonfolk and wights (oh and camp scenics). With that said, I got shipping notice today around 1:40PM PST. I am wave 5 if that means anything, and I locked my initial order literally hours after PM was live. Hope that helps.
