Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Dang - I missed getting a pic of that

 

Order 312 today was headed to Chicago IL.   I thought that was quite a coincidence. 

In case you don't know why I say that: 

Spoiler

312 is Chicago's area code.

This is almost all of the minis that fit in trays this size (other than the modern stuff that I didn't order):

Everything else is too large to reasonably fit in these types of trays...and there is a lot left that were too big to fit in these trays.

What kind of trays are those?  They look like plastic tackle boxes but I'm not sure.

 

My large box arrived yesterday.  I'm still working on inventorying everything by SKU.  Once that's done, I'll take a better look at the status of the minis.

 

So far, I've had the same paint issue as someone else and I got a pack of Spartan statues with two smooth statues rather than one smooth and one distressed.

I might have to choose a sacrificial mini and do some tests unless someone beats me to it.  

 

Miniature horror story under the cut

years ago at a gaming event outside a store I had a pre teen drop a mini then Drag it with their foot across the concrete to get it closer to pick up. It was trashed.  This led to me stopping bringing minis to cons and events which led to my stopping painting minis. The first Bones Kickstarter is what for me back into the hobby.

 
 

 

 

I would kill it. Like, seriously, murder it, right there in front of everyone :mellow:

 

I'm sure after I explained they'd let me go with some community service :rolleyes:

Is there a sheet of the future release SKUs? I don't know when the Bones 3 release schedule was published and am not sure when to expect the Bones 4 release schedule to show up. Those of you who backed Bones 3, do any of you remember when the Bones 3 release schedule was first published?

I remember that the Bones 3 planned release schedule came with the box of Kickstarter stuff, but the planned schedule became less and less accurate as time went on.  I suspect they won't provide one for Bones 4.

Right...ok. I hope they at least release the list of actual SKUs ahead of time.

Maybe. On the other hand, a lot of that had to do with packaging issues which seem to have been resolved. I hope they do release an expected release schedule, especially in light of the Bones Black claim "always in stock".

I'm pretty sure the murder would be a community service. Well, maybe not murder, but a bit of creative maiming anyway.

They still haven't released the clear weapon sprues. 

 

The packaging issues were due to the larger miniatures needing custom packaging. With the number of large miniatures in this KS, I would anticipate that they will have even more trouble solving packaging puzzles.

I had to close the app or I'd get nothing done at work today and eventually someone would notice.

Yeah, it’s not the money it’s the time and effort. I don’t know if I got through to the kid, but it killed the hobby for me for years.  The first Bones KS was a gateway drug to getting me back in th hobby. 

 

My husband said the reason I don’t like the harder plastic is I can’t lay on a pile of minis and pretend I’m a dragon. <_< I think I’m being accused of hoarding.  

 

This is was the first time I was able to get one of everything and I am VERY happy with that.  So many minis, so little time before Reapercon!

 

also got duplicates of some things and now wish I had gotten more. The Dice characters and Rocky are getting painted up as gifts.

      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.
