Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

So after checking my order there seems to be only one problem:
- The herbalist from dreadmare is missing a part (from looking at a painted example it seems to be the cylindrical part tht is hanging on her waist), since I don't really like how that part looks I may just sculp the clothing in that area and not even ask reaper for a replacement. Its also possible that I missed that part when taking her out of her bag or it fell off.

Some minor annoyances:
- some of the pre completed miniatures have some noticable gabs (not all of them)
- A peg of one of argent's wings looks like if it was partially cut in production (so that it fits the place its meant to go) 
- The Nyarlathotep base was bent and after the water trick (partial since its pretty large) the figure doesn't really fit the spaces for it.

My mistakes:
- the minis I glued in have some minor gaps (looks like they were caused in the changes in temperature) 

- Dance of Dragons is a pain to put togetther so I will do it later when I have some hot water and time

Some comments:

- I like how the Frost Giants turned out and even the wolf is not that bad when held in hand.
- The dragon turtle is amazing

- Civilians are full of character 
- The medium to big miniatures are really good.
- Rocky is fun.

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

Hot water is a must when putting together Dance of Death. 

I used copper wire to hold them in place on top of the base, and in the correct shape while they cooled off.

(Start with the 3 body parts that connects together; body and tail section of one, and body of the other)   

You may want to pin the to entangled forelimbs to keep them straight.  

(It's a bit of a pain to pin, but curved forelegs looks just horrible)    


DO NOT glue them to the base until after you've finished putting them together and GreenStuffed. 

If you can wait, don't glue them in place until after they've been painted. 


I have batherd and straightened the dragons, glued their bodies together and are GSing them. 

I have NOT glued the dragons to each other. though.

Aetherworks isn't sending the emails, they are automatically sent by AusPost when scanned into the AusPost system.


I think  I've seen somewhere from Aetherworks (don't ask me where though, as it was a while ago) that for some reason the emails aren't always sent for international shipments. Checking their Facebook they're saying they're nearing completion with shipping, so hopefully you're in this boat and it's already on it's way.


looks like at least some are arriving in NZ, but no info as to whether they received emails or not.


OF course, this would probably mean that yours was the first packed - and therefore last off the pallet :-)

So I couldn't rememeber when the next Wizkids upm wave came out (knew it was soon, as I was needing the Spectator) & I came across this article in regards to Bones 4 at retail:


Reaper Bones Monthly Assortment Packages are back! Each month, starting in June 2019, Reaper is offering a new package containing the brand new Bones 4 models.

And just like before, they’re discounting these Monthly Assortment Packages for retailers. Reaper is taking more right off the top, so when you buy a Bones 4 Monthly Assortment Package, you’re saving an even higher percentage off MSRP. It’s the equivalent of about $50 in free Reaper product with each monthly package.

I'll admit, I'm glad it's mostly Dreadmere coming first at the was the expansion, I wanted but didn't want it during the KS. As I have a bunch of the medium sized figures in metal & being Bones, I wasn't sure of the quality we were getting. Looking forward to the releases at retail!

How much did you order?   


My $350 worth of bonesium weighed in at 8Kg, and fit in a box that originally held 4 x core sets.

The most voluminous parts were the Core set, Argent(in a box about the same size but half as thick as the Core set), We Will Roc You, Dance of Death, Mossbeard, Stygian Barge, Dragon turtle, and Tree of Despair.    

(I had a lot of smaller stuff too )   


And people with much larger orders have also gotten it as one shipment.

I am missing:

Dragon Turtle


Dance of Death x2


Ruler of Hell

Thinderfoot Behemoth

Blacktooth Terror

Skeletal Dragon


Hence why I was thinking there might be a second box.  I have sent an email off...

I remember when my bones were in Japan. My organs and skin were there, too. Good times...

Hey everyone, do the Bones 4 minis from the Kickstarter have their Reaper number on the bottom of them like the other minis?

None of the bones as far as I know have their number on them, only reaper miniatures and the date of the manufacture.

      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.
      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
