Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

How much does the average consumer really want to pay for a Bones mini?

Less than what they're charging currently for me. I keep telling myself that Bones Black is going to catapult the quality, but the velociraptor I painted over the weekend has given me pause. Hands and feet are just vaguely sculpted blobs. I blame sculptors feeling like they need to use computers to get things done quickly, probably due to pressure from the KS timeframe these projects are built on. Bones Black will make it possible to compete in fidelity with other materials, so I'm maintaining some hope.

I got the Orc shaman in Bones Black (they were giving him away as a freebie) and I'm a bit disappointed because mould lines, flash, blobs concerning detail etc. But ... the miniatures of the Dreadmere expansion that arrived today are great - they do not have those problems ... are they Bones Black, too?

 I was under the assumption that the roof could be removed so you could use the inside of the house. 

I had asked this question during the KS.  It was a resounding no.  So it was never intended to be removed nor was it ever promised.

 

 

Actually, as of August 2017 the plan was to have a removable roof (and legs).    Brian and Ron said that was the plan in this Bones 4 livestream: (cued to the exact point they make the statement)  https://youtu.be/a8-lU9NEMR8?t=250

Yes. All the Expansions and some of the Add-Ons were cast in Bones Black.

Thanks Chris ... I had started to doubt myself. That's annoying. Two changes to the hut make it a lot less usable (and at least the non-removable roof came as a total surprise for me - must have missed that information ... was it in an official update? I don't think that Reaper should rely on "Reaper live" to inform backers about such changes). I understand that changes sometimes must be made, but with some other changes (base for the barge, size of dragon), I'm a bit put out with Reaper at the moment (which will probably be over as soon as Bones 5 starts).

Yes, it seems Reaper was operating under the impression that folks would be fine with whatever changes needed to be made during production, and they didn't need to be mentioned, since the fine print on the Kickstarter states that things might change from what's being shown.  On the bright side, I think they have learned a lesson this time, and Ed promised better communication in the future:

Am I really the only one whose Baba Yaga hut showed up and was able to stand perfectly? I find it hard to believe, but I wonder if there were some major QC issues...or maybe packing order issues?

Mine is fine. I left it sitting on my drinking room table for about a week, and it never tipped over or ran away.

Scroll down until you find a post from Pochi.  This was also posted august 2017.  In the video they weren't sure.

My hut arrived and was standing on its own, but rolled after a few days in a warm windowsill (leaned more forward). 

 

On my second boil/quench, and it isn't in the hot window anymore. I am seeing the tilt come back slowly. Just a matter of time before it rolls. It is really difficult to get the center of mass just right on it. I think I'm going to need to figure out a way to drill pins in its legs, or rig a tri-pod post to the bottom.

Hm ... I did not understand that to mean you cannot remove the roof. I thought it meant "there is no interior sculpted, i.e. it's a blank space, not even texture on the walls" ...

Yea, there is no interior sculpted.  Its supposed to be hollow.  I dont actually have the model so I cannot tell you if its glue together or if the roof does come off but is glued on.

Nope, that's one of my gripes - roof does not come off, firmly glued into space.

Well, you can get some super glue remover.  Might take some finesse.

      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):

      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 ...
