Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

The long campaign seems to be working for Reaper, especially since it's summer and a lot of people are on vacation.  It just feels like we've been waiting for the final few days for so long now!  Hopefully the marathon style of the campaign doesn't wear out poor Bryan.  


Now if only they'd add some cavalry already...

I'm sure allowing funds to be added later has some sort of effect on the KS, but I'd bet Reaper is able to account for the difference -- especially after having run several of these.


Personally, I'm going to hit the ceiling on what I'd planned on spending on the Kickstarter, but since the PM is remaining open, I'll be able to spend more money over time.

True, but could it end up hurting their ability to get new molds for the items that the KS potentially misses? I assume they want those in retail at some point. 


Guessing @Reaperbryan has this all sorted out and has weighed the pros and cons already though. I'm not worried if he and the other ringleaders aren't worried. 


...I'm just fidgeting hoping for the big dragon fight to show up :B): 


Hmm.. I can do ~$200 right now.  Over the next 9 months I am sure $50+ a month will be added.  If they didnt allow that $200 is all they get.  So even if PM was not open for 9 more months they still get just $200 from me.  Not sure the PM staying open for 9 months makes that much of a difference on the KS but does send more money their way in the end.

Yeah, it hurts the kickstarter for sure, less funds available to unlock things with the Pledge Manager allowing for added funds. However, Reaper can't be losing anything by doing it this way, they have to have thought through having the Pledge Manager allowing added funds later.

They did this on Bones 3 with it very clearly stated up front and Bones 2 being more nebulous.  It didn't hurt either of them in any way.

With a longer campaign, and thus more things being revealed, there will probably be more people hitting their limits during the campaign. I'm glad that the pledge manager will stay open for so long since I'm at the end of what I can reasonably do now, but I'd like some more of the things that are being teased or revealed still.

I am happy that this is a longer campaign myself. I think Bones 3 was probably a little too short. Not sure the length of the kickstarter really changes much though, Reaper has a great reputation with kickstarters.

Didn't we unock everything in the last KS and they had nothing left? Or was that another one. And we had the ability to add to the PM after the KS.

Reaper has everything planned out. 


That was definitely the case with Bones 1 but I'm pretty sure that Bones 2 and 3 had plenty more lined up.

I'm still waiting on a camping set (tents, bedrolls, campfire) and horses with a wagon or carriage.


Those things might seem mundane but they'd get a lot of use and would be an instant buy for me.


I backed the Mantic Terrain Crate Kickstarter earlier this year to get things like that. Not sure when they'll hit retail but it's supposed to deliver May 2018. You may even still be able to sign up post Kickstarter.


What am I getting?

For sure:

Core set


All the hill giants.


skeletal monsters

Baaba Yaga's hut



Depending on available cash:

paint sets

tree of woe/despair


living statues

Dance of dragons

The big wyvern

BTW, regarding my favorite adventuring duo:




The croc's name is Torlan, which is Welsh for "riverbank." That seems pretty dang appropriate in my estimation. Bufo, as you might know, is Latin for "toad." I imagine he'd be quite rankled if you called him a frog.


seriously cannot wait to get my hands on those two.


edit: Er, hope I didn't make it sound like I came up with those names. It's not in this image, but Reaper named these two!

BUFO!!!  He is definitely my favorite sculpt so far!

      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
