    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Oh for sure, I'm not saying Reaper should cater to wargamers. I'm just saying I think there is more crossover than people think, and that I've found all the Bones KSs useful as primarily a wargamer. I tend to like mixed model units for all my evil armies anyway. Matchy matchy is for the good guys. But you can still use Bones for characters, even in the good guys.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm not entirely certain about the wargamers. It may be that most of what you see are crossover rpg-wargamers, because there are plenty of those (it's very easy to go from wargames to rpgs, it's the mindset of painting lots and lots of troops that is harder to grasp for most rpg'ers). But anecdotally, I see lots of Bones in the Kings of War groups I'm in. Like, an awful lot. If it isn't Mantic, it's usually GW or Reaper. Now, once again, I don't know for certain that these aren't one off purchases, but I'm betting quite a few aren't. The Bones Kickstarters always get attention in my KoW groups.

    Did anyone else notice Rictus is now in Dungeon Dwellers? I hadn't seen that mentioned anywhere.

    I think this time I need to really maintain a better budget for myself on this, so I'll most likely be in for $100 only until much later in the PM, unfortunately. The house we bought had a mold issue in the basement that needed rememdied, and then we started having weird electrical issues. Lots of money out the window.

    Not-so-dread Gazebo

    See how bad I am about WIPs? I think this is the next pic I got, started highlight and shade layers. And then layered some extra ground colors in: Next, basic ground cover: Then decided to try something a bit different. I want a dry white bush look. Got some lighter lichen, mixed in some white paint. With that done, I started cutting it up and placing it. More less what I wanted, but I wanted to bring some of the browns and greens into my white bramble bushes. Not really sure I'm done, the bushes lost some height, I think I might add some more back around the gazebo itself.

    Tonight's progress is small. Zenithal prime, plus green over top the grassy areas: And then some gap filling I had neglected earlier but was now bothering me. Used Vallejo's plastic putty:

    Suppose that's why it gave the vibe! Always had a decent memory for aesthetics.

    Not-so-dread Gazebo

    Hey, don't normally do WIPs, so forgive me if I skip steps, but I started working on my gazebo from Bones 4. Built up a cork base and mounted on some basswood (slightly harder than balsa): I'm going to be using this as blocking terrain in Kings of War, so I don't really need any interior functionality. I got a Rivendell vibe from this, so I'm going to load it up with some greenery. First step is covering the rock parts with a gritty paste: Just left the steps exposed and some edges.

    I love the fact that the ruins continue to look like the same civilization.

    Kings of War

    Today's blog topic: Titans: https://manticblog.com/2019/08/08/kings-of-war-third-edition-titans/ Mantic is really upping their resin game, it looks like.

    Kings of War

    The equivalent of UE is following close behind, and the word is no armies eliminated. But yes, it looks like the first book is Mantic's supported mini lines (fair play to Mantic).

    The fifth, yes. So far the only must-have for me is the Zombie Giant. The core set usually sucks me in, too, though.

    It depends how they set it up. Last time there was a Wave 1 $1 pledge that would accomplish what you wanted (pledge manager access at Kickstarter prices). The pledges are region dependent to some degree though, so you'll just have to pay attention to the pledge levels and choose the one that makes the most sense to you. If you look up the Bones 4 Kickstarter, you'll see what I'm talking about along the right side. The $ amount is the minimum for that level, so you could pledge $5 to the $1 pledge level.
  15. I'd like to see some conversion head sprues in Bones Black. Regular Bones is still a little soft for such a job, but Black looks like it could handle the job. Sprue of 10 orc faces, sprue of 10 human faces, sprue of 10 elf faces, sprue of 10 skulls, sprue of 10 vampire faces, etc. I've got a lot of cool models from B1-B4 that I don't really need, but if I could make some of them into things I do need with a quick head swap, that's a good deal for me. I'd also like more group type packs. Love the groups of say 5 bugbears, or 4 beastmen, or what have you that have come up in previous. The Goblin and Kobold sets from last time were awesome!
