Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

The bases were a stretch goal and came with the core set. 25mm and 50mm

 

I'd forgotten that, so I thought I'd gotten them by mistake!  Discovered I was wrong when I was going back through the updates looking for information on the Modern Scenics.

The bones are here! THE BONES ARE HERE!

 

I'm not allowed to open them until the significant other can be there too, though. She's got work in a show for class tonight. When we get back, though... that's when the mayhem begins!

 

Oh god oh god where are all these bones going to go...?!

I’ve had my minis for several days and still haven’t gone through everything.

 

I think it took me 5 days to get a quick look at everything. But I've already painted a few simple things that I'll be using soon. I like your idea of keeping them set out as an incentive to paint but I'm already doing that with 2 armies, several Frostgrave warbands and a bunch of odds and ends. So the majority joined their earlier Bones compatriots in boxes and a dozen or so camped out on the shelves.

Got my box, including a zip lock baggy of bases I didn’t order. Not complaining, always could use bases 

Those are likely the bases included in the Core set.

Ok, all sets are accounted for, a miniature by miniature, dry-fitting inventory will have to wait as there are just soooooo many. I did get 2 paint sets when I only ordered 1, so I've emailed reaper to offer to pay for the second set.

 

edited to add:

Pics to prove it under the cut

For those that have not received their boxes yet, picture really do not do the new material justice it’s leaps and bounds ahead of bones 3 which in itself was still great, very happy with the kickstarter

Still going through my stuff but I am for sure missing the skeletal creatures from the core set box

Which ones?  The skeletal owlbear/manticore/chimera were an add-on.

      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.

      This is by Bob Naismith, who has a long pedigree in figure design.
       
       I really like all of it, especially the hoverbikes. But the prices are steep. I might buy a couple of display pieces, wish I could afford an army.

      Skirmish game in the Kings of War setting.  There's a rules preview link in the kickstarter description.
       
      For new models there are two forces to choose from initially.  Big images in the Hidden Contents below.

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.
