    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    It looks to my untrained but eager eye that the top of the wall above the portcullis looks hollow. Hollow-ish, at least. I wonder if it could be cut out and a raisable one could be put in. Or if Reaper would kindly make such arrangement s out of the gate?
  2. Box was waiting for me when I got to work this morning (a shame when you have to have packages sent to you at work, but they brighten up a work day) and I wasted no time. I chose the Duskwarden, the River Widow, and a wee velociraptor for my minis. Topped those off with a pair of paints that caught my eye through the bubble wrap they were in and a skull barrel that lost its integrity. Planning on getting the BoGW back on the road Monday.

    I'm hoping the pulp encounter is a byakhee chasing a car full of investigators. One driving, one holding a lantern so a third can read from a tome, and the fourth shooting or swinging a weapon at the monster.

    Talespinner designed a great portal for Bones 4 Fan Favorites. Has anyone confirmed a FF 2?

    I just realized that they're only showing two of the harpies. Did we lose the other harpies? They were great!

    Joining Twitch isn't worth any amount of paint. Unless is was a bottle of DNP.

    Surely they'll leave it separate so that people can load their boulderkin into it. The guns aren't a selling point for everyone. I'd be more likely to need a ship for a fantasy game where they'd be out of place. The guns worry me, since they seem so prominent that even if taking them out is an option the ship will still have gun ports down it's side. It does look better than the other one, though.

    I just got brave enough to add up the stuff I'm wanting. Presuming the Pulp Encounter is $18 I'm looking at just under $200. I feel like that can't be right. The Greek expansion is a probable add. The ship is a desperate desire, but there are so many things that can happen between "We're making this awesome ship" and "Here's the ship" that I'm actively trying to not get excited about it.

    I noticed a call for a stegosaurus mini over in the KS chat just now. I thought to myself, " I know just the Steg for the job! I've seen it somewhere around here..."

    So, if they stick to the average of 14 unlocks per map, with five maps confirmed, we're probably going to get less than twenty more unlocks. Since I'm fairly confident that the pledged amount will probably double in the next three weeks, that seems stretched pretty thin. I'm placing my bet on a mysterious sixth map making an appearance, and upping the unlocks to upwards of thirty more, most of which will come in the last two or three days of the KS.

    If they cast it in a nice brown plastic then a wash and a dry brush could get it table ready in no time.

    That ship is too big. Way too big. If they pull it off at a good price I'm gonna need two. I guess 2021 me is gonna have to sleep on a twin mattress to empty up some space.

    There are only (wow, yeah, "only") about 50 minis in the core that I'm significantly interested in. Even then, it's something like $2.40 a mini, so it's a great deal at something like a third of retail plus a huge number of minis to trade for something you do like.

    Here's hoping for a coelacanth in the Dark Depths expansion. I don't think I'll end up convinced to get the expansion, but I'd definitely get a coelacanth or two down the road.

    I'm glad that Sir Forscale has started putting in appearances. I hope that they skip to the Pulp stuff soon. I'm digging the spiders, but having a severely arachnophobic means I'd never put them on the table. Of course, if I didn't want him to explore an area of the map too thoroughly I could put one of the silk wrapped bodies near it and he wouldn't even think of checking that corner out.

    I don't have much use for the kidventurers myself, adorable as they are, but I have a friend who really enjoys running youth D&D games, so they'll be given to him. They do look fun to paint, though. If they're a reasonable price when they break up the Core I might get a second set of them so I can paint them. If not, my friend might get them prepainted.

    I'm eager for the rest of the Greek Expansion reveal. Part one is almost enough to sell me on it out of the gate. I'm also looking forward to the Pulp Scene. I'm almost certainly in for a Core, the villagers, and two or three of the dragons.

    You can't help someone or some company that isn't willing to admit that it needs help.

    From the KS page: ALL OFFICIAL COMMUNICATIONS FOR THIS KICKSTARTER WILL BE VIA KICKSTARTER UPDATES ONLY. This is why we're annoyed at their communication choices.

    They showed off a 12 inch 3d print of Ardent as well. Best to presume that nothing is finalized until it's absolutely finalized.

    Has it been stated anywhere that the Core will be Bonesium or Bones Black? The inclusion of the kobolds makes me think Bonesium or a mix.

    By all the Gods and Devils, I desperately hope you're wrong, but that seems tragically likely.

    I wish they'd spend less time twitching and twiting and add some size reference to the KS images. This thing seems kind of slapdash so far. If only they'd had a forum full of people telling them that they needed to get someone whose job it was to do this when Ladystorm left. It's really our fault, since we didn't mention it to them.
