Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I feel like there's one person still knocking around the kickstarter warehouse, maybe wondering where everyone else is, maybe not...

I think I learned about Baba Yaga from watching Lost Girl. The sidekick is scared of Baba Yaga because of stories her Russian granny told her. Then of course the team meets Baba Yaga and things go badly, then well, and they win.

I got one extra set, pretty much planning on using parts of them for basing and such, or maybe to create some of the variety of skeletons they kind of demonstrated one could do in the video demo.

Im wondering if I can magnetize all the pieces so I can swap heads for different undead creatures.  I only ordered 2 sets and I wish I got 4 maybe even 5 for parts.

39.5 pounds.... I fear I may have made a grave error in judgement....

You have a very different definition of "Grave error in judgement" than any of us when it comes to bones.

I'd heard about Baba Yaga ages ago but I didn't really learn anything about Russian folklore until a GM I was playing for asked all of his players to create characters based on Russian fairy tales. Turned out to be harder than I expected. I mean, everyone's basically named Ivan... The way that Russian folk tales in particular use the same characters (Ivan, Vasilisa, Baba Yaga, Koschei) in different stories like they were actors was really interesting.

I need a house-stretcher! Or to clean my craft room... yeah, a house stretcher seems more likely.

Seems implausible that only 2.2% of posts in this thread were off topic...

Sounds like it's time to get a storage unit. And then move one of your existing rooms worth of furniture into it so you can put your bones in that room.

Baba Yaga is also in the new Hellboy movie, though early suggestions would say that's not a good thing.

 

There's a classic D&D module that uses Baba Yaga, "The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga".  The spell, "Tasha's Hideous Laughter", was created by and named after one of her many daughters.

 

 

 

She also has an entire adventure path themed after in in Pathfinder, "Reign of Winter".  It is a great bizarro module full of Eastern European myths ans monsters.

Reaper put out a previous metal version in that line...I prefer the new Bones version.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
