Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

I guess I just thought more GM's were like me and had some badass bosses on the way to a crazy deadly god like encounter with something like Ma'al.  Which funny enough was where a campaign I was running in MERP was heading before real life butted in.


We have plenty of bad broccoli bosses. Current campaign is Storm King's Thunder so lots of giants (no big demons yet that I'm aware of, I'm not the DM but seems unlikely there will be any). We did Curse of Strahd before this one though we never finished it (were there demons in that?) and we did some sprinkling of modern stuff with Savage Worlds. Before that my huz ran Rise of Tiamat at the store (no demons?) and another DM ran Against the Giants and Descent Into the Depths of Earth with our group at home. Maybe you ran Into the Abyss but for whatever reason we just never ran that one. So that's a lot of adventures we've been through and a lot of regular gaming with no big demons. Also, as I already mentioned, I already have the two guys! I'd rather be spending my money on figures for monsters I don't have (of which there are plenty) rather than "better" sculpts of existing figures. When I am buying "better" sculpts just to upgrade my collection you'll know that I've financially made it and can just afford to buy whatever minis I feel like all the time. That'll be the day.


Edited to add: Ha! the forum turned a-word into broccoli, hilarious ::D:

Edited again: We also did Savage Tide but I don't think we finished it, looks like (spoilers:)


there might have been some use for some demon stuff later on

Build a sort of frame out of clear plastic rods; if the outer shell is clear, all you need to do is show the edges, right?

Actually, that might not be a bad idea to have some sort of photo booth at Reapercon where people can take pictures of themselves as a miniature in a blister pack. Money goes to charity, it's a win-win.

Agreed on the cute nicheness. However, looking forward to seeing what else Reaper comes up with. Mouslings are great. Really liking the High Rollers and Rocky as well.


A Mousling Pirate mini would be fantastic!


In case someone didn't link already, they made a special edition one a while ago (http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Special Edition Figures/sku-down/01520)


I got him off a 12 days of Reaper so keep your eyes peeled during events like that.

Great idea!   The neat thing with that, is they could use some photo software to actually shrink your image down so  your whole body fits in the blister.  (And folks like us at home who can't make it to Reapercon could send photos to have "blister-ized"! ::):)

That would be the surprise.  Did not want to ruin it for you.  I know you have been asking for dinosaurs, reptiles and the like for your project.

Probably not feasible, but it'd be even more awesome if the pictures were taken next to a giant Sir Forscale...or a person dressed as him. :)

well I am still not sold on the new demon:( MAYBE if I have ten bucks burning a hole in my pocket July 30,2018...MAYBE! Much too much other stuff I want (and in some cases 2 or 3 of the same, like wraiths). But I am glad others want it. Great when there's something for everybody.

      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
