Just set them all up on the coffee table and MARVEL at them for a while, to begin with.

I'm going to dive into the box and swim around like Scrooge McDuck in his gold vault. Many of them are going to be NPCs in our ongoing enormous homebrew campaign. We're making up future encounters e

Pretty much decided that if I get a Vampire box with those faulty face moulds that people have pointed out, I can't be bothered reporting the problem to Reaper but am going to save them and paint them

Diorama-making raises an interesting point, though. I'm loathe to chop up my metals, but I'd be significantly more likely to use Bones for conversions or dioramas.

Of course! Not to mention that it's SO MUCH EASIER to cut through semisoft plastic than it is to cut through metal @[email protected]

I don't want to have to buy anything more than my modeling razor!

I'll be building a ton of 'Song of Blade warbands with the Bones figures. These figures and those rules were made for each other in dark heaven.


Once I get a clear mind after this awesome kickstart, I'll be doing up some playing card size stat cards for each figure in the range. By next March I should have all of them done, ready for release!

I am going to take my new Bones minis, and all my other minis and put them in a large pile in the middle of the room. And then I will paint myself all in gold, place a horned helm on my head, drink a bunch of vodka, and lay atop the pile.


Occasionally I'll try to light my bleches on fire to complete the effect.


I'm sure I'll slumber there until an unruly band comes to try to take my minis from me, but I will best them... unless one of them is shorter than average and possesses a very precious ring.

So many uses for the Bones!

I'm going to try putting together an all-Bones HeroQuest set, some Song of Blades and Heroes warbands, the IMEF marines and NOVA troopers are going to be fighting converted cultists from the new 40k starter in games of Combat Zone, there will be at least one new Warlord army out of this (two if we get frost giant warriors), some (like the dragon slayer) will be painted up for the hell of it and the mimic will be converted into "the luggage" on my lady's request.

Oh! And some new heroes and villains for SuperSystem.

Honestly? I'll put them all on my work table and wonder what I got myself into. After the shock has subsided, the "mooks" will go into ziploc "twist and lock" containers I use to transport plastic mook minis to gaming. They'll be eventually painted. The remainder will go into bins of some sort to await their spot in the paint queue.

I'm trying to figure out how to make use of Biker Sophie for RPGs. Minus the wings, she could be a biker with some exotic fashion tastes, but then at that point the model isn't all that special, and I'd really need a STANDING version to be of much use for games. Are there any models that might be suitable as a base point for representing a standing Biker Sophie (with some amount of conversion)? "Peaches, Biker Girl" doesn't really look anything like Sophie, but at least she's got a jacket. Green-stuffing bell-bottom pants/chaps and a dew-rag on Sophie to get a closer match might be a bit on the extreme side.

Most of mine are going on the shelf at Dragon Snack Games to be sold, thank you Undertaker level. I did increase my pledge to get a Vampire level (as well as other add-ons) for myself though...


I'm going to dive into the box and swim around like Scrooge McDuck in his gold vault.

My first thought as well. At least they won't be as painful as the metal ones...




Well, many of them are going into THE BOX to languish in darkness until I have a need for them.

This is probably a fate my personal ones will be subjected too, sadly enough...


Next up will probably be the Jabberwock, because it'll be perfect for my games of Wonderland No More.

If the rumored WNM/Cthulhu mashup ever takes place in my store, I will be painting up the Jabberwock for it...


We have a teen, who will not live at home forever...

This can't be the little one who had such a fascination with my paints in an egg container. He CAN'T be that old yet...

      Hello people! i would like to share with you an upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will start on April 20 and last until May 10.

      Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter.  Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet.  We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be.  By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet:
      Dragon Turtle
      Agramon, Duke of Hell
      Blacksting Wyvern
      All of the Fantasy Scenics
      Thunderfoot Behemoth
      Blacktooth Terror
      Dance of Death
      Mossbeard Treeman
      Skeletal Dragon
      Am I missing anything?  Any word from Reaper about whether or not these will ever be available againt, outside of the Bones 4 Kickstarter?

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      From the page: "Explore the deeper mysteries of The Dark Eye with Magic of Aventuria and enhance your gameplay with additional rules, professions and archetypes on 240 pages! Magic of Aventuria gives you access to new magical traditions, perks and spells and gives you the background of what magic is like in Aventuria. Magic of Aventuria allows you to take complete control over the mystical art by delving into some of its strangest and most powerful practices of every kind of magic – from word, to song, to dance. Expand your magical repertoire with new traditions, spells and enchantments! Nearly two dozen profession packages expand options for starting characters and new focus rules for spell workshops allow mages to develop new and exciting spell effects!"
      We have been collecting The Dark Eye books for a while; and have been pleased with the previous books from these kickstarters; can recommend.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
