There's new speculation on the KS comments that Rautheros will be a freebie!

 

 

Granted, I'm one of the ones that is doing the speculating... :devil:

Based on the pattern established so far, this is very likely.

I wonder if Reaper would mind us getting the Undertaker level if one were planning on selling the extras online (oh, say, eBay perhaps) or if one would like to open up a comic/hobby shop sometime in the future and/or possibly as an important future investment?

 

But then again.. I've noticed the vampire level gets an extra mini every time they're added, but undertaker only gets 2. If this kept going, then 3 vampire levels would actually yield more minis than the undertaker level.

 

Just kinda discussing it. I'm not really sure the undertaker level is all that profitable. From what I've seen so far, the $110 Sophie set and Ebonwrath seems to be the best investment options, if one were participating purely for profit. :B):

 

Edit: The 5x reapercon sophie set is worth $85+, so I can only imagine what a set of 9x sophies would be worth. Probably $150+. But I'm thinking Ebonwrath will sell for $20+. Decisions decisions...

 

Edit 2: Don't look at me like I'm being greedy. I'm jobless so I have to consider these sorta things. ::P:

If you EVER get into Warhammer eBay will be your best friend :)

 

It's one of those games I'm content to play on 'demo days'...nobody in my circles plays either. Same conundrum I'm in with RAGE-powered games...no players local, so they get repurposed for DnD and Battletech nights...a job they're quite good at!

 

Fair enough. ^_^

 

But hey at least you have DnD and Battle tech.

 

I do not have a battle tech group in my area. :down:

 

Where's your area?

 

Northern Utah - Ogden / Roy / Clear field area

 

I live in the Roy Area.

 

We play Battletech most Tuesdays at End Zone. PM me for details.

 

OT: I'm hoping Rauthuros's stone has some demon warriors as freebies, with the option to purchase the big guy.

With the recent unveil having a freebie and a pay for option, that's changed the previous established pattern. The next tombstone should now be a freebie, meaning the winged tombstone will be a pay for.

From what I can tell you would probably be safe to go ahead and get the unique singles. 4 out of 6 multi-packs are already in the kickstarter. The orcs aren't in it yet, so it's hard to make a call on those.. but the $25 KS orcs are so much more epic anyway. ::D: Then again, the black orcs are better equipped than most player characters... maybe you do need the orc spearmen and archers pack.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.
