Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

I think all the human sized figures show improved detail in Bones Black, although the translucency of the lighter grey doesn’t show the minis off to their best advantage in photos.

Are you saying she looks even better in person? Because she looks pretty darned fantastic in those photos.

I'm seeing various YouTube videos, so maybe find a way to compliment them, rather than overlap. Maybe start with the add-ons first?

 

Personally, I get more out of text reviews, since I can more easily skim and reference the material. 

 

You may also want to discuss how well Bones Black is for specific models (eg. is it better than original Bones for human-sized figures).

Based on that, I think I'll hold off on unboxing. I'll still probably take a bajillion pictures.

IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

Definitely even better in person. I’m pretty happy with Bones Black being used for human sized minis.

It may cut down on my metal buying.

Hey Darsc, did you get Fan Favorites? I need a pic of the back of the scabbard of the Overlords Cavalry for comparison.

Mr. Mouse thinks l should take pictures as part of inventorying the minis. l don't think he realizes how many minis there'll be. 545 minis is a lot of pictures

 

I went through the KS updates to get nearly all of the pictures of the minis. We had some previews with Sir Forscale in late 2018-early 2019, and the name of the sculptors.

 

It's a time consuming job, but my database for Bones 4 is almost done.

Ok, I worked through my list and my per/figure cost is $1.52 each . . . 

 

That included everything . . . The kobolds, the dvd, the gargoyle/braziers/skulls/Orbd/Mystic Orbs, bases, DVD, Talan's art book, kitchen sink . . . .

Can someone take a pic of the back of the scabbard for the Overlords Cavalry? Not sure if mine's deformed, or if it's supposed to be that way.

Here you go.

Though happy to have cavalry, they're not my favorite conversions.

And after I loaded them on the computer I realised the shot you wanted isn't good.

Thank you, both of you. It's good to see that the weird shape of the back of the scabbard is how it's supposed to be and not a mold issue. Or maybe it's both. And I agree with you, @Cranky Dog. I don't like how the shield arm has changed from the originals, though it probably couldn't be helped.

Looks like we're at a tiny bit under $1.60 per miniature. It's a pretty good deal.

Little bit. You know, kinda... sorta... :rolleyes:

 

There's a fair chance that the portal is gonna be the first thing I paint. The real question is, does it get built with the dogs or not?

Hmm, by the numbers, excluding paints and art book, I come up to $1.83 per miniature.

 

If I used goblin math, I'd have 20 miniatures for $20... so $20/miniature. :blink: Uhm... I'll stick with the regular math.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
