Wyvern?

It looks like it's got birdlike feet to me, so I'm thinking it's a cockatrice.

 

Could be, but Reaper seems to try to make its fantasy minis compatible with F20 games, and a cockatrice in both D&D and PF is a Small creature.  It's hard to tell for sure without Bryangles, but this fellow looks like he'd be more at home on a 2" base.  It's a shame we can't see what its tail looks like in this shot, assuming it has one.

Any news on dates for 2017?

Spring is all it says.

 

 

I think its a safe bet that its not going to happen until Bones 3 is fulfilled.  If they wont receive everything until Jan.  You can expect fulfillment to go through March at least.  So April or May would be my earliest guess.

Ron stated very clearly Bones 3 will be done before this starts.

The translucent things are 3D prints, UV laser in solution. I wouldn't expect them to be translucent in production (but I guess you never know?)

 

 

Wowww.  They look amazing.

 

I suppose they will not be translucent in production, probably.

 

At the moment they look like frosted glass sculptures.

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.

      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.
