Bones IV pre-launch & news

Recommended Posts

Keep in mind that the snake, like the two Spartans, the elephant, and the ruins/temple thing are not Reaper models for Bones 4. They're from a Kickstarter for a Conan game that was run a while back and is getting ready for fulfilment.

Did they happen to say which one? I may buy it when it comes out in retail just for those minis.

Are you sure that elephant isn't for the Conan game mentioned earlier?

  

And some more pics of the Conan Rise of Monsters models.

 

War Elephant

 

And Classical Greek Statues (WARNING NSFW)

Yep I'm sure their Conan minis, hence the first sentence. The giant snake is a terrain piece and most likely the elephant and Spartans.

 Two kids? No, I'm pretty sure there's always just been one... Um, what pile of cash? I don't recall a large pile of cash in a box marked "Bones 4 Fund"...

I said it before on Facebook somewhere, but those soldiers in the front look suspiciously like they're designed for a multi-part plastic kit. Are they for the Conan game perhaps, maybe Aquilonians?

 

 

OK, so I was having a closer look at a photo on FB, and I noticed that they all appear to have the same body - just different heads and arms. So I wondered... could it be a modular adventurer kit? One body, optional weapons and gear.

Wow!  I honestly thought that Bones 3 might've been the last one.  I'm in for one more, though I might be choosier than I've been in the past.  When Bones III arrives I'll have a mountain of unpainted minis.  The value in these kickstarters is just too good to pass up.

So many of these sculpts look amazing.  The Baba Yaga hut and the wraiths are awesome.  There appears to be an orc in full plate - a welcome change from the leather and hide wearing ones we have now.  Once again, it looks like we're in for a wild ride.

Okay, that's super-adorkable. :-D

I asked Brian if that was Cleocatra...and while amused, no it's not...however I have a feeling that will likely become the nickname

All I know is that I want them. I like their looks. Not too detail heavy, but not so light as to be bland.

They have a kind of simple charm to them, a bit like the Anhurians. They actually remind me of some minis that I've got lying around from WotC's Chainmail game.

Much like Ma'am is Tianot. I like Cleocatra better.

And now it has been named.

They may just as well start rewriting the description, because that name is just too good not to use.

Wyrmgear.

Sir Forscale.

Tianot.

Cleocatra.

While some names become official while others do not, we know their true names.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.

      Did you know you can click on the 'Kobold Kickstarters' graphic right on the Kobold Press web site's home page? It's a GREAT way to find out if there's a new Kickstarter coming soon .... just sayin' Mod: commerce link removed

      What is evil, yet cute? a KICKSTARTER that's what.

      Since SoC's delivery is in full throttle, it's time to announce the SIBLINGS OF CHAOS. Coming from the dark places of the galaxy, and serving Gods of terrible designs, they march for the total ruination of everything!     from the same team that brought us Siblings of Conflict, Impact! Miniatures and Marchen return with more goodies for us (after delivery of the Siblings is complete

      Saw some sculpts for this upcoming miniatures kickstarter and thought some folks here would be interested. Kickstarter is expected to start in September.
      Will Post more details and a link to the kickstarter once it goes live.
      In the meantime here’s some pics of the minis.





       
      This is the same sculptor who did the Narthoks the Excellent kickstarter amongst others including the Highland cattle Minotaurs and a bunch of animal minis. 
      Ive backed his previous kickstarter and also ordered a variety of his other minis and have been pleased with all I’ve received.
