Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

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?

 

 

I’m thinking there’s a good chance I might scrap the whole base, drill a hole under the ring, and plunk it down on top of a battery tea-light for a base ; then paint it.

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

Since the whole thing is translucent I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered finding a way to insert some LED illumination around the ring, myself.

 

But I also know I'm lazy and I have approximately 20 minis to paint (not counting the 20 more I'm getting from Bones 4 in a couple days) and I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen...

 

I bid thee: be not lazy! Not like me! Do something awesome!

Mine had a departure scan just after midnight on the 13th from Commerce city in Colorado. 

 

Knowing that I won't see any more scans until tomorrow hasn't stopped me from occasionally refreshing my tracking page, however. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

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.

l think you did your math wrong. 20 minis for $20 is $1/mini

$1? Goblins don't understand that number.

 

In goblin math, there is "20" and "Not 20, but let's round it to 20 just to be safe".

 

Cross species math conversion is not for everyone, most notably if your species does not have fingers and/or toes.

 

Great, now I got to go count how many fingers and toes the core set goblins have. [Hint: it's 20!]

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

 

Is this the part where I suggest you could make video tutorials to paint each miniature? :upside:

After about 24hrs of pain I was able to get up and open my package.  I got through the Core Set and everything was there and I was impressed with the overall quality. 

My paint set is not right I ordered Set B and got half of it and half of A.  Guess I'll send them a message once their done with fulfillment.

Two issues with that:

- Not  a good enough painter

- I can't stand my own voice...not sure if I would ever have the confidence to share it with the Interwebz

 

Also. Why does Tuesday come so slowly?

Because Monday is in the way.

IT MOVED!!!!!!!!

 

After being scanned  in Denton Friday evening my package seemed to disappear into the system, but as of 9:55 this evening, Central Time I’ll assume, making it just under an hour ago my time, it left Mesquite TX.

Y'all, I don't have a shipping notification. I'm wave 3 and I bet they run out of the Frost Giants before they get to me. It's really ok though, I've turned my anxiety into productivity and painted 5 more Bones figures today...

      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
