Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Opened up my chicken hut to find the rear talon on the right leg was broken off.

Figured, no problem, as I was planning on removing the legs anyway as I just want the hut.

 

I have a small hobby saw, so I started sawing on the leg.

Or to be more accurate, I tried to start sawing on the leg.

 

I don’t know what’s been added to Bones Black to make them so tough,

but I think I may need an actual Bones Saw.

 

There’s a marketing idea on a new hobby tool for you Reaper.

 So its like cutting a drumstick off a turkey. More a surgery than a cut or saw.

I just watched Moana for the first time last night. So now I want to "paint" this guy's shell with glitter and bits of shiny treasure.

But he salutes you! And wants to shake your hand!

Now I have some idea what to do with him, thanks @Pezler the Polychromatic

I liked the idea, not so keen on the finished mini.

I will likely cut it into pieces to create a pool of crab monsters half submerged or something like that.

Either that or convert it to get a more dynamic pose.

My crabman is going to end up with the legs of the tidal lurker or the dire crab.

Question for those of you who received the Lost Valley expansion.

 

What do the tusks of your large elephant man look like?

Mine looks like one may be mispositioned.

Is this what yours looks like?

My left tusk is broken off but it fits back together more upright than yours. Almost 90 degrees twist clockwise.

 

Not happy to hear about operation drumstick being difficult. May have to go to the band saw if it'll fit. My bandsaw is kind of small. Then reattaching them will be a bit of a hassle too.

I've gotta admit, I'm glad I didn't get Baba Yaga's hut. I have no use for the legs being on it, but considered getting it to be a nice terrain piece. In the end, I decided it wasn't worth getting since I have such trouble with big terrain blocking my players' view of the mat (and they're too lazy to just reposition to see something). Knowing that the legs are fused to the building and require effort to remove them, I'm very glad I don't have to deal with the hassle.

Got my reward yesterday. Mossbeard seems to have escaped the box in transit and is probably living wild and free somewhere between Texas and Michigan. Who really wants to live in the Detroit area anyway?

 

Email sent to help at reapermini dot com. I do feel a bit ungrateful, though. The discount for backing over the retail price is so good, I feel as though I got my money's worth without the Ent.

 

Haven't inventoried the core set yet, but man, that barge is large! No, that is not a euphemism...

That's why I'm very patient and can put up with any mistakes that happen. I know Reaper will make good in the end and it's an incredible savings. Did anybody figure out the per mini cost this round? I remember it from earlier Bones. Got a new acquaintance thinking of getting into mini gaming and I'm willing to sell him some of my stuff but was too lazy to do the math myself on these.

 

Is there a list anywhere that gives the names of the minis?

 

edit: quit being lazy. The core set is $0.61 usd per mini varying in size from kobolds and pole toppers to Gauth.

Wow. Wow, wow, WOW. Thank you for breaking this down. I had no idea the cost savings.

 

Makes Bones 5 tempting.

When the average price for a man sized mini is $3-4 at retail it is a very good deal.  The expansion boxes are $50 for 36-43 minis so ~$1.16-1.40 per mini. Double the price of the core set but still pretty reasonable.

 

Just out of curiosity I looked up a couple things from Bones 3.

 Ma'al Drakar KS $60, retail $150

Marthragul KS $15, retail $30 (and that's not bad for a mini that size)

Frost giant warriors KS $10 for 2, retail $13 for 1/ $26 for both

paints KS $20 for 12, retail $3.70 for 1/ $44 for 12

So at least a 50% savings over retail. Just in case those people with 40 lb boxes needed any more justification for buying now.

It's similar to other plastic models. It should be easy to drill.

 

I would recommend a pin vise (available at most hobby stores) or for larger drilling a manual hand drill (I got mine at JoAnnes etc, no shame) A manual hand drill, for those who are not old farts like me, looks like this,

and this is a pin vise

the reason for the recommendation is the high rotation speed of a dremel or standard rotary drill could cause the Bones material to melt, making for a sloppier hole and fouling the bits.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      SITHRAH is a sci-fi about a little girl trying to find her father after their plane crashes in a unfamiliar land. That's when she starts seeing an invisible creature, called SITHRAH, who has been following her around. It's not long until she runs into a young man named Dino who is running from his own ghosts. Together they set out to find her missing father wherever the evidence leads. 
      Book 4 will focus on their journey across The Deep to try to find Light City.
      This series will be 6 books long.
      Sithrah has been a big experiment with the comic format by mixing subtle prose with comic panels. My hope is to blur the lines between comics, children's books, and novels without making it jarring for the reader.
      Most of my inspiration comes from the comic artists of the 90's when I refined my drawing style. Later I became influenced by Miyazaki's movies and storytelling and have been trying to make comics that have a similar depth and feeling.
