    Aaarrgh! Curse you, Reaper! How dare you put out such cool minis! YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS! (Actually, I will pay for this. In for another 50$).

    Looks like a DING!

    Need about 320$ every ten minutes for that, but early tomorrow is not unlikely, IMO. I think it is most likely some 1$ backers getting off the fence and bumping their pledges. We may also be getting a surge due to Ebay re-sellers.

    For me, an old lead head, Bones Black hits JUST the right point between quality of casting and price. I am not that great a painter, so the additional quality of resin or high end plastics is really wasted on me, as I am not up to that standard. That being said I did pick up one of the Murkillor resins from the Reaper store as a gift for a friend of mine who IS an awesome painter. He will be having a happy Christmas!

    I <3 Tananda 4EVA! Seriously a "Mythadventures" set from Reaper would SOOOOO get my money. Especially Aahz, Gleep, Guido, Nunzio, and Don Bruce!

    My issues have also been very minor. I can only think of 2 from bones 4, and I was all in for the minis except for the Spartan/Amazon statues, which have grown on me, I will probably be getting retail,( D'oh!) and the modern scenics. One was the switch on the female in Rulers of hell from a lefty to a righty. No big deal. The other was when someone forgot to send the STL file for the base on the Maggotcrown Bonesack, as that mini (IMO) really NEEDS a base. Again, no big deal. The Frost Giant Raider changes did not bother me, nor did the alteration to Argent. Can't think of any others that departed too radically from the concept/renders shown in campaign.

    From the campaign page: (quote) YOUR BACKER RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS KICKSTARTER If you do not log in and confirm your pledge in the Reaper Pledge Manager by August 31, 2020 you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after August 31, 2020. Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics. If you confirm your pledge late (after April 30, 2021) some items may not still be available. This means that part, if not all, of your rewards may not be available and/or your pledge may be forfeit. (End quote) So it looks like a soft close on April 30 (6 months), and a hard close on Aug 31 (10 months). Also note that Reaper DID extend the pledge manager for 1 month (at backer request) for Bones 4. Could happen again, but I would not count on it. Just noticed the date in the second bit is 2021. Emailed Reaper to ask, I will share the response.

    19 more backers, and Bones 2 goes down. Bones 3 already kissed the mat. Next is Bones 4.

    Nominal scale for 28mm is 1/56. Where things get weird is whether the measurement is "eye height" or "top of head" for a 6 foot human. That being said, these measurements, IMO, are really only critical for "true line of sight" wargames such as warhammer,etc. And even then, really only in tournament play. Again IMO, as long as you are within 20% either way, I'm good with it. I have some 1/72 scale historic minis that I based on 1/2 inch thick glass tiles that hit the right height on the tabletop, they just look a little skinny compared to other 25/28mm minis. Most Sci-fi vehicles are actually 1/72 scale, especially heavy armor, from what I have seen. The only way you are going to get 10 GW space marines physically inside a GW rhino is to not assemble them and throw in the pieces. Add-on = And even then, it probably would not work for a devastator squad.

    Ah, yes. Rico, Private, Skipper, and Kowalski.

    Zooming in, seeing the deep undercuts on the ammunition, I would say it will be CAST as a separate piece. Whether it will come that way is anyone's guess. I don't think it would be too hard to modify, given the size and shape. There were several complaints in the last Bones about poor quality pre-assembly, and Reaper said they would keep that in mind for the next project. How that will work out between better or no pre-assembly is a crapshoot, really. Honestly, as a modeler, I would rather they came unassembled so I can do any necessary trimming or modification myself. It is very unlikely a stranger will take the care assembling several hundred or thousand models that I would assembling my 1 - 3 models.

    Probably the same ones who "forget" and "remember" rules when it most convenient for them on the tabletop. Just sayin'.

    Honestly, as much as I love my Goblobber, with the bend in the throwing arm, the obvious tension in the torsion rope bundle, and the presence of the release rope, the Reaper model is a SUPERIOR sculpt. I am ordering 3.

    If you want to mod the reaper catapult into something similar, this was the complete kit. As assembled Bones 5 Hammerfist Catapult Does not look like a difficult Conversion. Hardest part would be Characterful Crew.
