  1. Same. That was the first thing that came to mind.
  2. I'm planning on using this in my Exandria campaign (Critical Role Universe). I absolutely love how reaper gives us these gems to drop in wherever we fancy! Not too familiar with Greyhawk so no ideas to add there, but I am planning a sort of "tavern-crawl" clue-mystery themed one shot and it all starts and ends at the Green Griffin.
  3. that sword looks like its damascus.... are those 3d print layer lines or did you paint it that way? for real it looks awesome!
  4. I found a new recruit on RTB Pro Tips twitch stream just this morning & this is their first Reaper kickstarter. I only joined the Reaper party AFTER bones 5 had closed so I was a late pledge, and haven't looked back since. I'd say that the superfans probably just show themselves more than the rest by staying engaged, here in the forums and elsewhere on social media.
  5. As far as I can tell, The only paint color offered here that is discontinued is MSP Gutter Grime, which was part of the RVE paints. Ghostfire is still available in the High Seas Horror fast palette and all the others featured in the photo are available in the store... In Bones 5 they had Foerster's favorites which was 12 paints pulled from existing paint colors and then they had the 12 new colors that were added. So maybe there will be these + another option with 12 "new" colors that fill in old holes. Yeah, the triads are being broken up as certain paints get the chop due to sales performance and that is super sad but there aren't any of the discontinued triad paints shown here. Chestnut Gold, Palomino gold and Buckskin Pale were in a triad, but Chestnut gold was discontinued (I think it was replaced by Golden Griffin Tan)... Shield brown is in a still available triad, same with twilight blue, stone grey, Aged Pewter and Old bronze, all still available. The rest (Succubus Kiss, Yellow Mold, Spectral Glow and Goblin Skin) are MSP Bones colors that I'm not sure were ever part of a triad and were never cut from the line. I'm probably going to skip this "Painter's Pick" option as I am only missing the Goblin Skin color from this offering.
  6. Hokay, so... just ruminating about Bones 6 and something occurred to me: I went back to the Bones 5 Kickstarter page to look at the zombies that came in the core set and I completely forgot how big the Bones 5 Core Set actually was. It had... ready for it? 152 miniatures included. Makes me wonder how much will get added to the Bones 6 Core Set and I bet that will change a fair few peoples minds about backing.
  7. After seeing the tease of the Bones 6 Core set last night, I was at first disappointed but as I look more at the spread of options I realize that a lot of holes in my collection would get filled up. The only zombies I have are those that came with Bones 5, and now I can have a proper horde! The bog monster is awesome, and the tiefling dancer girl too. Some of them are most likely to be painted and/or sold but I'm realizing now that I would use more than I first thought. I'm an aspiring new DM and probably because of that, this core set may serve me better than most. I had hoped for more new sculpts in the core set though if I'm being honest. My initial thought is that with the assumption of there being some kind of undead expansion (evidence: the skeletons revealed earlier in this thread and the bones 6 Emblem with the raven holding a bone) the zombies COULD have been lumped in with that, allowing some other... more desirable minis to come with the core set. You can't please everyone and none of us have the same needs or wants so let's just all be glad Reaper even cares to consider its customers opinions... *cough* LIGHTHOUSE *cough*
  8. I'm interested to see what minis they will add to the relaunch, looks pretty cool...
  9. Just backed this for a few of the models... the Gutterborn Scum looks sufficiently creepy, the Aland with the lamp for a head has caught my eye as well as the Jammed Door with a skeleton which gives me (CREEPY) vibes of the talking door knockers from the Labyrinth movie. This looks like a game that I might enjoy but I have no plans on ever playing, so the minis I get will either proxy for D&D or just be for painting & display. Boris is an amazing sculptor and I'll be happy to have more of his work in my collection!
  10. I'm pretty excited for this, especially curious about new designs in the future. I have lots of models to base and I'm not the biggest fan of basing... Got lots of Wrath of Kings minis that need base inserts so here's hoping they fit the bases that came with those!
  11. My hoard is definitely Reaper heavy, followed closely by wizkids(which is an almost 50/50 mix of un-painted and pre-painted - Trying to collect as many of the Critical Role minis as I can as well). I have a few batches of minis from random kickstarters and a score of old legos and weird toys that I've salvaged and need to either kitbash or fix up for the tabletop. Recently I got an order of Irowind Metals, and I have a cart almost ready with Darksword Miniatures. I have a diorama planned that is missing ONE model which no ones makes that I will either have to commission or attempt to sculpt myself as the pose and clothing are so specific, I'm having a hard time finding suitable kitbash options. My wishlists are still pretty long and I've got minis up to my ears, but there are a few holes in my monster line up as well as some that I want purely for display. My biggest hang up right now is storage and display. Bones 6 is gonna add to that issue but I love Reaper too much to not join in. I'm also a paint addict and I'm hoping for some new/revived colors.
