  1. This is the second miniature I've ever painted, and the first with Reaper paints. I figured that a brush holder would come in handy for the all the Bones V painting in my future! The only Reaper paints I own are the Bones V paints (Learn to Paint kit and the two collections), plus two bottles of Reaper MSP 9038 Rainy Gray. Overall I'm really pleased with the way this first attempt worked out! I primed everything with 9038 Rainy Gray, then put on the base coats. The wings and ears gave me the most trouble as I had generously overpainted with 9410 Dragon Green, and was attempting a w
  2. The other big "sleeper hit" for me personally is how much the quality of Bones has improved. The last time I bought Bones minis was in 2016, and my opinion back then was that they were a good mix of detail, durability, and affordability. Bones Black is a huge step up from the 2014ish white Bones that I'm familiar with, and the classic material has been improved so much I couldn't tell at first glance where it was used in the Core set!
  3. Definitely, @cawatrooper! That's partly why I'm so impressed with Dungeon Dwellers; I can already tell I'll be plonking down 99% of it regularly. I agree with @YronimosW that it seems poised as a perfect starter collection for newer GMs and players. It pretty much sells itself as a small dungeon in a box! It strikes me as a great companion gift or upgrade to a "Learn to Play D&D" kit. It certainly would have been extremely appealing to me back in 2010 when I first wanted to try D&D and bought a 4E starter set.
  4. As a first time Bones backer, I have to agree with @YronimosW that the Dungeon Dwellers expansion really blew me away. I almost skipped it, and didn't really pay the box much attention when everything arrived; I was too excited about the skeleton pirates in Brinewind! But when I finally started sorting through it, it quickly became my favorite box. There's a great selection of classic "generic" adventurers, the variety of monsters is great, and I really, really like the little pile of treasure. 😁
