Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I would be interested to know how big the new stone giants are.  Have they been scaled up as Reaper has done with other giants, or are they compatible in size with the earlier stone giant (77336)?

From Ron in the update comments

 

" I wouldn't categorize the Stone Giants as dinky. They're about 90mm tall, give or take a mm or 2. It's difficult to perfectly scale concept art, digital sculpts, and actual in-hand models together but we do the best we can to accurately portray the sizes."

Is there a reason reaper scaled up their giants? And is it really noticeable between the old sculpts and the new? My goal is to collect all the reaper giants someday and I'm wondering if I should just skip the older ones if they're gonna be a lot smaller.

@Glitterwolf - cause any real discussion is being swallowed in the is comments, why do you see there is a chance that you will have to pay taxes twice?

I don't know about every single sculpt, but the original Bones fire giants (and frost giants too?) are smaller than the older metal giants, and smaller than the most recent versions put out in Bones 3 and 4.

 

If you're looking for the Bones 3 versions you might occasionally find some on eBay. I don't think they've hit retail yet. 

 

In terms of why it matters, it's nice to have giants that are actually giant. The original bones giants aren't much taller than a lot of Reaper's ogres.

Are the Jadefires an all-female Orc tribe? :blink::wub: 

 

Reaper themselves stated in the update, that collecting the VAT was new information to them. There are a few problems with this, one being that some backers are from inside Europe but outside the EU (Norway, Switzerland, ...) who have to pay VAT in their country again when getting a package through the UK. Apparently you can mark packages as destined to end up outside the EU and don't pay VAT when importing into the UK or something similar, but the way it is right now those backers pay VAT twice.

Same problem would potentially occur in case of a "hard Brexit" with all the other EU backers.

 

And ofc, it's kind of killing the 48-hours hype when you log in to your pledge manager and see that you blew your budget without adding anything.

 

What you are saying is that for Norway for example, if Reaper had collected the vat, and shipped from the U.K., there is no way to tell Norway, "ok here's your vat, it's been paid, you don't have to collect it from this person."? If there wasn't a way for Reaper to forward the vat on to Norway, and the person had to pay the vat, I would expect there to be a refund from somewhere (like Reaper). So I still don't get how you would have A doubled vat (that wouldn't in some way be refunded.)

Those little guys are cute as can be. The queen is amazing. Her dress and her cap....I can just imagine all the colors and how pretty she can be.

Really glad to see another female giant, sad she is in a $50 expansion. Hope she hits retail quickly sometime in 2019 :D

Folks had been asking for a 360 of the fungal queen.  This is the best we can do being currently displaced. 

 

 

 

 

Wow, I really liked the video!  Thanks for sharing it.  Something about the improvised aspect of it, and getting to hear the sculptor take such pride in her work, made the figures all the more appealing.  Makes me wish Reaper would have more sculptors show off their own work...

I do wish a few more reveals were up at this point. Lost Valley and the townsfolk are looking great.

      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 ...
