Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion


Recommended Posts


What, a cranky gopher centaur carrying rolls of trade goods?

The possibilities! ...

Or just a pack rat! As good as a mule in the right dungeons...


I like that.


There could be a whole tribe of them, living near the ruins of Castle Greyhawk (or Undermountain, or whatever your campaign's mega-dungeon is) renting themselves out like underground Sherpas as combination guide/pack mules. They are renowned for their low-light vision and stealthy capabilities.


Of course they supplement their income with their curio/armour/weapon/magic item shop, which is coincidentally located right next to the camp where they rent out their services to adventuring parties. And rumours that the rudest groups of adventurers never seem to make it back alive are just that, rumours, and scurrilous ones at that. There is absolutely no evidence of Gopher Centaurs bypassing low level areas, leading adventurers to their doom and absconding with choicest bits of their gear. When queried about the rumours that parties bringing along large quantities of cheese tend to get better treatment, official spokesmouse Grey Blarney issued a terse "No comment!" Off the record though, he may have said, "Yesss, Yesss, bring lotsa lotsa cheese" whilst rubbing his paws together.

Cute video. I notice Ron referred to the mini formerly identified as (I think) a Gerbil Centaur as a "Pack Rat." Whatever it is, it's pretty unique.


Just hit 13,000 backers!


My apologies for the sequential posts, Ladystorm.

Wouldnt a gerbil centar be part gerbil and part horse or part gerbil and part man? I'm pretty sure that was just part gerbil and part gerbil. Which I think just makes it a gerbil.

Either/or briggart. You'll can include it in your pledge, and you won't have to pay it later. You can also just pledge your addons, but you'll have to pay the shipping before Dec 31st. I recommend pledging your addons+shipping if your credit card can handle it. More stretchgoals now is a good thing. If you've used the pledge calculator it'll give you an exact cost to pledge.


Edit: Also, congrats on 200 posts! :)

But KS takes 10% of the money pledged. Should we increase the shipping fee by 10%, does the calculator already account for that, or Reaper will simply eat the difference (thanks!!)?


PS Thanks, I didn't notice ::):


Edit: I guess I should have been clearer in my original question.

I really like the not-Tardis and not-Weeping Angels in the expansions, but the other items don't seem like stuff I'd really use. I think I'll probably pass on the sets and hope that Reaper sells them individually once the KS is over.


They're adding about $20-$25 of stuff per expansion "step" so by the time funding is over, you might find some useful stuff. Not sure why their first terrain isn't fantasy related (eg. ruins) but the modern stuff that's there can be used for HeroClix, Dust Tactics, MERCs, AT-43, etc.

despite some of the many complaints, Reaper really is doing it's best for shipping outside of the U.S. and are taking a hit on our behalf to do so. A small hit considering the overall profit they stand to make with the Kickstarter funding the molds and such for the minis, but since that is long term profit, it's a bigger hit than many realise

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.
