    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I feel like this part of the Kickstarter has become agonizingly slow. I hope something jolts people awake tomorrow.

    I’m psyched for the Leucrotta more than anything else. An adventure I want to run has them as an encounter, and I had no idea what to use to represent them.

    I assume that the Storm Giant and Cloud Giant are meant to be analogous to the male and female statues in the Greek Odyssey expansion.

    Lots of people have been spamming the comments of the Kickstarter with their wish lists for minis. Does Reaper pull the ideas for the "fan favorites" minis from the "Bones You'd Like to See" thread on the forum, or do they pull them from the comments of the Kickstarter?

    I was preparing an adventure for game night, and I realized there aren't any Ettercap or Ettercap equivalents in Bones. I feel like that's odd for a staple monster. I hope that this spider mania might lead to one.

    The wait is getting to me!

    Historically, have expansions ever crossed maps, or have they remained confined to one map? There are six unlocks left for this map. 2/3 of them must be Greek Odyssey and Dark Depths, right?

    I, too, wish that the spider were smaller. I can use medium-sized and large-sized spiders in my games. I have never needed a huge-sized or gargantuan-sized spider.

    Is shipfaced what you get when you drink too much grog and pledge for this expansion?

    Yeah. I was just feeling silly.

    What do ya'll think "everyone's favorite subterranean antagonists" in the next unlock for the Core Set will be? Grimlocks? Kuo-toa?

    I'm excited about everybody else's excitement and the potentially high price point! That should unlock a lot of new minis!

    But...but...that's a dwarf and two gnomes.

    It's weird, but I feel like the miniature I want the most is the female halfling in the Dungeon Dwellers expansion. Do ya'll know how many female halflings are in Bones right now? None. Do ya'll know who really, really wants to play a female halfling in my next campaign? My wife. That little miniature will help a lot in the spring.

    Ghosts of Saltmarsh introduced a Sahuagin subtype with a sword, a subtype with a warhammer, a subtype with a glaive, and a subtype with a quarterstaff. It's too many different subtypes to track in a combat when you have two miniatures to represent them, but I know it's a long shot to expect Reaper to meet the need for one specific adventure.

    I hope that the next "underwater" expansions give us a large-sized crayfish, a large-sized eel, a large-sized hermit crab, a large-sized octopus, and/or a large-sized sea slug. They would all fill gaps in the Monster Manual/published adventures. Sahuagin with slashing weapons and bludgeoning weapons would also be awesome. A boy can dreeeeeeeeeam.

    Yay! New not-Sahuagin!
  18. I'm a gamer, not a hobbyist. I don't paint minis. I don't convert minis. My biggest need is "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" minis for the monsters, creatures, and NPCs that you find in rulebooks like the Monster Manual for D&D. I need something that I can pull out of the package, plunk down on the table, and have my players recognize right away. I feel like Reaper's biggest advantage is that Reaper has the capacity to release minis much, much more quickly than WizKids, which releases minis at a glacial pace (I feel like we will be on the 7th edition of D&D before WizKids releases even 1/4 of the Monster Manual for 5th edition). I also feel like Reaper's aesthetic isn't as much "cartoony" as "classic" and prefer that aesthetic to WizKids, which I feel like is much too modern for my tastes.

    I would love more Tiik/Slithe/Sahuagin too! Ghosts of Saltmarsh introduced a plethora of new subtypes of Sahuagin, and using one Tiik miniature to represent them is next to impossible.

    I have seen pics of a Tiik Warrior that was converted into one, and it's awesome, but I'm not a hobbyist. I don't even paint my miniatures. I just want something that I can pull out of the package and plunk onto the table.

    It's kind of an obscure monster, but it's also a major encounter in the starter set for D&D 5e. The official miniatures go for $25 to $35, due to rarity, and no major miniatures company makes a generic one yet. From the Forgotten Realms wiki: "Nothics were the result of a curse befalling wizards who delved too deep into arcane knowledge. Once transformed, the nothic held no discernible memory of its former self, except for a faint notion that there might be a way to reverse its condition." And, even if you don't play D&D 5e, what DM wouldn't want to terrorize a party of adventurers with a one-eyed horror driven mad by dark secrets?

    I hope that the next expansion to the Core Set gives us gribbly monsters like a Nothic or Stirges. I know that they aren't as "Ooh! Ah!" exciting as dragons and giants, but they are core monsters in introductory adventures of D&D 5e, and neither are available in Bones.

    A shadow dragon in smoke gray translucent is awesome, but I was really hoping to see a new model!
