Reaper Miniatures Bones 3, Launches July 7th

Recommended Posts

I have no luck; I'm gonna be on the road tomorrow. AARGHH!

I wonder if pulling over on the side of the highway to pledge is considered an emergency by the state police....

I'm doing this as well.  Anyone on the road around 11am should look out.

Phases of the moon.

 

1 human

1 mr Hyde

1 werewolf

1 dire wolf

1 wolf

 

All in a similar style

Well... All you really need is to match paint some of the already released bones to get what you need.

We already have humans (cronoscope ones) a Hyde character (flash golem), werewolf, dire wolf (Warg) and a regular wolf...

Unless the early bird is a discount instead of earlier shipping, I'm in no hurry.

Yeah, I'll be at work when this launches, but if I end up wave 3 or something oh well.  I have 20 more minis than I can paint before it will end up shipping anyway, so I'm in no rush.

I *should* go and update my credit card information.

 

Just so I can pledge faster.

 

Did that last week...

Successfully removed *old* credit card information!

 

Nowhere to add *new* credit card information...

 

Well there goes that plan.

I needed to add a new card as well and had the same issue.

 

Just pick a KS at random, pledge for $1 with the new card and then cancel the pledge.

Bryan once said that early bird discount makes the opposite effect (people thinking they are paying more -being punished- for not getting up early in the ks.)

So they use the shipping waves to promote the early bird pledge (and with the two days for each wave, the only reason for you want to get in the first wave is bragging rights...)

 

But it is a great reason!! I know I'll in the first for sure!

So, as far as my first thoughts on the nu30...

 ...

 

No idea what the giant is - or at least, compared to the others I'm guessing it's a giant? It's not on the store under Giant, Ogre or Troll, so I think it might be a new one - either way, looks cool, and I'll find some use for it...

...

 

I know someone said it was a Fomorian and I think I remember Bryan confirming it, I also think he might have said it was the only new model in the core 30 but there will be some new ones in the bonus 24  :upside:

 

...

The War Dog, likewise, will be a good mount. I have one in metal, and it's substantial enough in scale to be a riding dog... I'll probably need a few of it just for that. It's too large in scale IMO to look good alone, though, which is a bummer... it's a great figure.

...

You have made me very happy with this news... Ive been wanting a riding dog for a halfling & I was hoping this might work. But wasnt sure based on the picture :wub:

 

Now to get a halfling ON a riding dog!

Ooo, Formorian! Still trying to figure out what's up with the legs, but at least it's something cool!

 

And as for the War Dog, it's perfect - and it's already got plenty of straps; I doubt you'd need to add any unless you wanted a full saddle. Some armor, too - not a lot, just enough for a knight's crest or paladin's holy symbol...

I am pretty sure I have a full open clearance from my CFO (i.e. wife) for however much I want to drop on this for two reasons:

A) It starts the day before my birthday.

B) I have the numbers ready to disclose how much she has spent on her Anime/Manga habit if she gives resistance....

 

OTOH, after this KS someone will probably have to use a stuffed animal or puppet and ask my billfold "Where did the Bones Kickstarter touch you?  Was it in your no place?"

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.
      More Bat Photos Below:
       
      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.
      More Shrine Photos Below:
       
      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.
      More Werebat Photos Below:
       
      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Hi everyone.  Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today.
       

       
      I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety.  As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons.  I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther.
       
      Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341)
       

       
      First up was the Tiger.  She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341).  Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently.  I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well.  Really wanted to get the coloration right.  I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color.  I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights.  The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting.  I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best.  I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though.  She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt.

      Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341)

       
      Next up is the other half of the Lion set.  This guy was always destined to be a lion.  Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images.  Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly.  I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color.  I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane.  The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base.  Time consuming but worth the result.  I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural.

      Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar)

       
      And finally we have the Black Panther.
       
      Fun Fact:
      Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther?  It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars.
       
      This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast.  I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal.  Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style.  I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right.  I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race.  I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot.  I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted.  Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch.
