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.

      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):
       
      About this project
       

      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.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      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 ...
