Bones IV pre-launch & news

Recommended Posts

I will back Bones 4, although I might be a bit more picky as to what I will choose.

 

( of course that's what I said about Bones III and ended up ordering a lot...)

 

Are there more pics of cosplaying forumites?

Wyrmgear.

Sir Forscale.

Tianot.

Cleocatra.

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

 

Huh, I hadn't realized there was a point when the name wasn't Wyrmgear.

It was originally clockwork dragon I believe.

I am liking the look of some of those translucent things in the cases. They look like frosted glass.

That is simply one kind of 3-d printed object, the final models will not be frosted translucents.

 

Any news on dates for 2017?

Dates for ReaperCon 2017 have not been announced. Contracts must be signed first.

 

That snake is to big for a mini. Probably just promotional stuff???

 

Does look awesome though.

The Snake is a terrain piece and major element of Conan: Rise of Monsters

 

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.

Unless I'm mistaken these figures are prototypes for a multi-part plastic kit with variations, similar to the sprues one might get from Warlord Games or Games Workshop.

 

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

Given that the plan is to have a series of all of the Egyptian Pantheon, and that one is the Goddess Bast, Cleocatra is a demotion and insulting.

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" 

(Yeah, that's a quote frome Shakespeare''s Romeo & Juliet)

 

Bastet, also known as Baast, Ubase, Baset, and even Ailuros(by the Greek) was the Egyptian  "Goddess of cats, protection, joy, dance, music, family, and love", and usually portrayed with a cat's head.

 

As such I can't imagine that she would disapprove of a name based on both a queen of unparallelled beauty(and don't forget that the Egyptian pharaohs were considered Gods themselves. In fact, Cleopatra represented herself as the Reincarnation of the Goddess Isis) and of her catlike aspect. 

 

The Bast name is I believe, more associated with her earlier 'warrior goddess' in the Lower Egypt area, while Sehmet was the parallell in Upper Egypt. Both were portrayed as Lionesses. 

 

/Disclaimer/

I once used to read every book on mythology I could get my clammy hands on, but that is a long time ago, now. Some of my current knowledge may even come from Wikipedia. 

I may or may not also be descended from Trolls...

So It seems Reaper terrain is being well received.  Though I admit...I was hoping for....smaller stuff and not these huge behemoths that I could mount tianot on....(though Im not complaining...)

 

May my wallet rest in peace...

Unless I find a gaming group prior to Bones IV I'll be pretty selective in what I pick up.  Probably just the big things and leave the regular figures for retail, in metal.

That painted big dude looks so freaking sweet.

Are we talking polystyrene plastics, like what GW and the others use, or the existing Bonesium as a multipart kit?

Be aware that the Giant Snake and Temple terrain is NOT REAPER. It is from Rise of Conan.

 

We are seeing pics of both Rise of Conan and Bones IV stuff.

      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.
