Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

best i can think of is a excessively spikey version from the family Mahajangasuchidae, or land crocs. Maybe even Mahajangasuchus itself. Definitely not one of the longer-legged varieties like kaprosuchus. Its head isn't really croc-like like that family but it's the closest i've been able to match them

 

Or they gave Megalania a ridged spikey back and horn.

They're discovering new dinosaur species all the time. Look up Ambopteryx, announced just a few weeks ago.

 

I think when the Avengers went back in time, they caused something to change so this specific species hasn't been discovered in our timeline yet - but two years ago in the original timeline, it was actually discovered back in the 70s. Them's the risks of time travel, folks.

To be fair, would one rather get a box of Bones with stinkbugs? Or without stinkbugs? Or even stinky bugs?

 

 

Hopefully they wont be getting  boxes full of dead fumigated stink bugs... 

 

Just try sending one of those back to Reaper for replacement because it’s missing a leg or two...

they are =P but the new miniature is already made, so it can't be based on something recently discovered. If it looks like something discovered in the future, then it's a happy coincidence, but it couldn't possibly be what inspired the mini itself, which is what we're discussing

Did Buglips fart in the Aussie box? 

Seems to me that such an action would tend to discourage any colonization on the part of the stinkbugs.

The effect on Bones in confined contact for extended periods of time has yet to be observed and reported.

Oh, Buglips, Nebulous Missy has a question for you!

Considering AU's fauna I am more worried about what might get in the box there. 

Unless the shipping container has suffered physical damage it should be vermin proof.

Since there are reports of stink bugs I'm going to make a guess that the container has suffered some sort of puncture damage.

The normal specification for seaworthy containers is at a minimum, wind and water tight.

Might have been bugs on the ship and the customs folks decided that fumigating the exterior was a useful precaution, too. Australia has had serious problems with invasive species and they take prevention pretty seriously.

 

The marmorated stink bug is native to China, Korea, and Japan and has become a problem in the US over about the last 20 years. It is thought that the bug got here by hitching rides on cargo. There are apparently populations in Texas, so it's also possible that the bugs originated there if they're inside the container.

In the limited discussion they had on Reaper Live no one said the infestation was inside of Reapers container.

It was mentioned that the ship made stops at several point of calls before reaching Australia which is why it took so long to get there.

      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 ...
