  1. Yes. I would just feather a line of neon green along the outer edge of the blade to make it look like a blade. As it stands, it looks like a lightsaber. Agreed, the cross guard is metal and should have a glint, at least along the edge reflecting the color back from the blade. You could or could not do the hand as well, and it’d be fine if you’re just wanting to be done with it.
  2. Per a suggestion in the Bones 6 enthusiasm thread, I’m posting this here: Hun or Mongol raiders on horseback Ancient Persian Ancient Babylonian (anunnaki) South and Central America (couatl) Pan-Polynesian A Chronoscope series specifically targeted at the ancient legends of Atlantis.
  3. Yes, there are a variety of looks to monsters that I’d love to see represented. Sometimes they do that as with their Bones 1 harpy and the updated harpies in Bones 5. They’ve done it with hydras as well. I can think of several legacy inspirational series for future KSers: Hun or Mongol raiders on horseback Ancient Persian Ancient Babylonian (anunnaki) South and Central America (couatl) Pan-Polynesian A Chronoscope series specifically targeted at the ancient legends of Atlantis would have me throwing heaps of money at Reaper. The artists could let their imaginations run wild.
  4. I actually don’t love the spirals and have considered cutting them off in the past and carefully storing the maps in an organizer so that I can just grab and take the ones I want with me, on the go. Plus, as you pointed out it means you can arrange them however you want.
  5. I’m sure they’re always looking for ways to grow and evolve to make money. They know the numbers that Chronoscope has done in previous Bones KSers, but that was also a situation in which they were ‘competing’ against other sets/add-ons. A stand alone may do surprisingly well with no other competitive pieces to ‘detract’, but it may also do a little as they’ve seen with other Chronoscope offerings. Idk.
  6. I love their work and was astounded when I saw that they were going away from their spiral books to the foldable…something that Yarro Studios did on their last KS. I wish I had the ones from Yarro…but China-shipping delays. I’m definitely wondering how well the edges of the folds are going to hold up with play and over time.
  7. I love the look you pulled off and the orange is quite inspirational. I could be mistaken…was the one on the far right supposed to be a troglodyte?
  8. You can also tell by her left hand and staff that the sculpt isn’t finished yet.
  9. Let’s not forget the legendary middle finger spell effect. I recently inked it, and its brethren spell effects and I’m quite eager to use it for my tiefling sorcerer.
  10. Same. I have some money in the Pledge Manager to spend and I know enough about how Reaper has done past (additional) unlocks to just wait to see how things look a month before they close the PM out. That might not help their decision-making but it saves me a lot of decision-making when they add more. Ohana means family.
  11. That’s precisely what I thought it might be going toward. Kobold Press really goes hard on that entire mythos and I’d of loved to have seen things I could work with in that vein.
  12. Correct. In previous Kickstarters I’ve just pledged $600 as my core pledge knowing that I’ll spend it all in the Pledge Manager and then be adding even more money during that phase as I make my final selections. Then, I’ll do 2-3 more orders along the way and end up hating myself when I have to sort through 2-3 massive boxes of plastic miniatures when they arrive. 😅
  13. 🙋‍♂️ 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️
  14. We’re the most reassuring people in the world, and we’re all massive enablers… 😅 I’m bored. *pulls out stick and pokes Reaper*
  15. Plus, it’s just one figure. If the inclusion of one figure makes someone not buy an expansion then idk how anyone pleases that discerning a palette.
  16. I’d speculate that it’s because they’re only putting one extra of the spellcaster type and then 2 each of the melee types in the extras. Generally, casters are fewer in number in combat scenarios, and he might be more plastic than the rest of them based on the size of his head and the staff, etc.
  17. I’m with you on the core set. I’ve been to so many ReaperCons that I have a bunch of the core set in metal already. Furthermore, I’ve got a ton of stuff from Bones V that was also already owned by me in metal that showed up as plastic. So the core set only has a few niche things that I don’t have and would like to have. I’m not mad about it.
  18. The walrus makes for a handy druid or ranger companion for a sea-based adventuring group. As a DM I could have a lot of fun with that.
  19. That’s just it, the ‘lighthouse’ can be soooo many things for RPG use at my game table. The versatility of such a piece is grossly unconsidered.
  20. Aside from a windmill, they’re a really fun and creepy location out of which cults and undead can operate. I had my doubts, but now I’m beginning to suspect another $100 miniature option. I’m not sure how they’ll top a pirate ship…which I’m painting right now, but I have a feeling it’ll be another biggun they’ll reveal with 48 hours to go. My pledge just went from $36 to $105.
  21. I definitely didn’t see that coming. How does that announcement have relevance to selling miniatures or hyping up the Bones 6 Kickstarter? I don’t want to launch into a bunch of questions and speculation b/c I don’t think it’d be appropriate for this thread. I’m certainly confused. Perhaps Reaper is expecting a downturn in miniature sales over the next decade b/c of STLs and they’re trying to diversify into the market to better position. I foresee a ‘boxed set’ full of terrain and miniatures as part of a future KS, along with rules, monsters, etc. The development costs for such a thing are REALLY extensive. I think.
  22. My reaction was, “FINALLY!!” 😍 I was going to make jokes about it but then @ksbsnowowl posted that sensible blue drake picture above. 😋 Perry the Platypus’ latest disguise. 😅
