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.

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.

Two more days on tenterhooks, waiting for Aetherworks to say they’ve shipped my Bones. Funny, the waiting gets harder the longer it goes on.

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.

Publisher: Reaper Miniatures
Item Code: RPR97420
MSRP: $89.86
Releases June 2019

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!

You will get your pledge in one shipment!

If you received a box and miss stuff, email Reaper!

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

Mossbeard

Dance of Death x2

Blacksting

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...

Yay, finally got my AuPost notice! So much for halfhearted hoping to have the official last package sent. They’re now saying last sending will be Monday.

Has anyone gotten a miscast stone giant carver?  Mine looks like his rock holding hand was cut off at the elbow and there's this shrunken ghost hand on the rock

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

Just got my message from AU that my bones are in Japan. I hope I get them today, but maybe early next week is more likely.

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

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

      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 ...
