Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Ok, I know I just got my Bones IV Rewards, and fulfillment is still underway, but I have a question. 

 

Post fulfillment, if there are any expansions left, in past Bones KSs, how long after the KS was fulfilled did the excess Expansion become available? Asking for a friend . . . :blink::rolleyes::B):

If I remember it was about a month or so after fulfillment ended??? Maybe a little after. Was mostly core and stoneskull if I remember (or was it mythos)

Also, what's the pricing usually?

I remember core was either $150 or $200?? and whatever the other expansion was, it sold for KS price (50 bucks)

By the way, what time are you going live?  I'll be home with my daughter and I'm sure she'd enjoy watching along.  Our shipment arrives tomorrow evening.

It will be around 9:00AM PST (California), the link is here: https://www.youtube.com/user/ratmaster2000/live

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

Did the Chronoscope figures all come attached to bases like that?

Yeah, if I had contemplated what exactly those 50lb boxes entailed I would have bought some stock in Locktite before this thing started to ship.

To my surprise, yes. And not just attached. Molded with the bases.

And yeah, for anyone who doesn't have them yet, definitely buy glue, there is lots to assemble. I can share my inventory list if ppl want to know what comes/doesn't come assembled in the core/expansion sets (printouts of the core/expansion set graphics with handwritten notes on them)

Did they ever announce the actual contents for the Modern Scenics add-ons?  Reason I ask is that I only have two of each barrel and the graphic shows three of each.  They're cast two to a sprue, so they'd have to clip one off of each sprue to get it up to three each.  Sprue attachment is on the sides of the barrel as well, which will take more work to ensure they're smooth, than it would if they'd done it on the bottom of the barrels.  :down:

The KS specifies 3 of each.  I only had 2 of each as well.  I contacted Reaper last week as US shipping was starting up in case it was factory problem. Maybe it was....

My guess is that it was a factory problem.

Just finished inventorying mine, and opened up my Modern Scenics to check.  I got 3 of them, and ALL three were missing the 3rd barrels.

New material looks pretty great! Lots of good stuff. Haven't had time to open the core yet, let alone start an inventory, but it's all so fun to look at!

 

The new Bonesium seems prone to shattering, though, and I'm seeing some problems where air got into the mold. Stone giant missing the middle of his arm, the chicken hut missing part of a doorframe (and some of the corners broke off and escaped). Big angry elephant from Lost Valley had his club snap. In a few years, when I'm done with the inventory, I'll shoot Reaper an email about it! ::P: We're missing a few other things besides (wraiths, giant snake statue so far). 

 

I'm a little nervous about some of the pre-assembled stuff. The huge spider being glued to its base is the worst so far. 

 

Argent is amazing but not as amazing as the roc. (Which is good news for me, since I got three!) Inventorying the barge without a parts list is both exciting and daunting. 

 

The skeletons from, I think, Fan Favorites are really excellent.

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.

Done going through everything. The only problems I found were:

  • Dreadmere #415 has no base (as previously reported). I normally make my own bases, so not a problem.
  • Dreadmere #437 (Peryton) has two torsos. Unfortunately probably not enough there to really work for an sort of modding.
  • Lost Valley - One of the giants has a broken pre-glued arm. Trivial to fix.
  • Chronoscope #308 One of the guns is broken. Again a trivial fix.
  • Fantasy Scenics - On the Astrolabe, one of the rings didn't quite fill, so there's a gap. I don't anticipate any problem fixing that either.

So other than the missing Mossbeard that I mentioned earlier, no problems that I'm going to worry about getting help from Reaper.

 

Some remarkably good stuff here. I don't regret getting anything, even the chicken hut with the glued on legs, since it's so cool. If they come out with another version without glued legs, I might buy one, just as a hut, but given the mass, it will probably not be worth it to me to get a second one even then.

 

The Roc is amazing. All three of him. And both Argents are hunormous and beautiful.

I'm undecided about the new material. I have looked at 43 minis so far and I have 3 broken parts. Frost raider hilt broken in baggie, rock troll foot in the baggie, and the jungle king with his tusk, which is missing. The jungle king comes in a box, but the plastic insert was broken inside the packaging. =(20190415_184046.thumb.jpg.e3e496a4ef88a9ca8169557c6aeaf1b2.jpg

I have saved this for last because it looks so daunting. Maybe I should have gotten it over with sooner...

I like it quite a bit. Except where minis are partially assembled in such a way as to make painting or finishing the assembly difficult.

 

Please don't glue the minis if you're not going to do the work to glue them right! :angry:

I looked at it. Made sure I had what I could figure out were the necessary pieces, then decided, "The rest must be right." ::P:

 

If I find out later that something is missing, I'll contact Reaper then.

      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
