    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    15-17k is what my math says as well.

    Bones 4 is Coming Soon!

    If you are worried that you don't have a large enough budget for Bones 4, take a look at this blog post (http://lostpapyr.us/posts/7-2013-09-13-adding-more-fun-to-the-reaper-bones-kickstarter) from just after Bones 1 fulfilled. My friends and I split the core set and a bunch of add ons, then held a draft to break the set up. We did it for Bones 2 and 3 also. If people are interested I can share the time lapse video of our Bones 3 event.

    MS High Density Paint?

    I see the first group of 18 colors is available today, but I don't see a set that I can order. Can we order the 18 individuals and get the set, or do we have to wait a bit longer for the set. Will the set come in a box like the master series paint sets? Thanks, Steve

    Average Force Cost

    I have a stats page on my task force builder website (http://www.cavcomcon.com/about/summary.html). According to that page, 3,000 is the most popular task force size with 26% of task forces created. 2,500 and 2,000 are numbers 2 and 3 with 19% and 13% respectively. This isn't just limited to tournament task forces, but I thought it might be interesting. Steve

    I'd change that card and why

    I've got three Ogres, but I've never fielded more than two of them. Costs too many points. Sometime, I would love to try 3 Ogres and two Recluses in a section. I did field 3 Mastadons (in a Black Rose force) once. The blaster made a huge difference there. I got 2 or 3 crits with a 9 during the game, as I recall. Between blaster and Dueces Wild at least one of the mastadons was guaranteed to crit each turn. Steve

    Oops, I got those confused. Sorry. I understand what you're saying but I still feel like the combination of the Wasp and "Fire and Fury" is too good. Steve

    But the EST is adding +3 to effect DV to the Wasp and everything within 6" of it, that's the big difference. +3 to a whole section is worth more than _1DV, +1 DT and FIST for a unit. I'll add that if the Harm missiles become official I have less of a problem with the Wasp. I don't particularly want rockets to be more powerful. I was thinking 10-12 points/DT instead of 15. Steve

    As the rules stand now, I agree with Vil on the Dragonfly and CFP. I guess if you're improving CFP somehow, I'll wait and see. I feel like the Wasps are too cheap. With the Adonese electronics doctrine, they can cover a lot of units with their electronics. OTOH, spiders are too expensive -- the pop-up is nearly useless. I think the same goes for the recluse, to use the pop up, I give up my electronics which was the point of having the unit to begin with. I also think that the Infantry rocket upgrades may be a little too expensive, or not powerful enough. I'm paying 45 points to add a rocket to a fragile unit, that's not likely to survive. I can buy an air strike for 50 or an orbital pinpoint for 60 -- either one seems like a better deal. Steve

    quick question

    I believe that you could use both the Emperor and the Mastadon if you use the "Pressed Into Service" doctrine which allows you to use faction specific models in your independent task force. Without that doctrine, you couldn't use either one of them. Steve

    Overlord Gunships [CAV]

    These are awesome! I've got a couple of Overlords that I need to paint, but I haven't figured out what I want to do with them yet. Steve
