Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Considering Argent is just an inch shy of the colossal red dragon figure from Wizards I honestly think hes the best deal in quite awhile for in game DoD is awesome as a set piece though. and looking at the pose im thinking i might sneak a clear sticky tac piece right on his back to have a figure perched their as a rider.

 

Currently planning a good final battle with a Ancient Red/Black with a Lich Riding or a Gold/Silver with a Solar on his back if the party is an evil one

Also the Fire Giant jailor, the Statue of Dagon, the town extras, and I *think* a couple of others (on top of the various translucent/transparent weapon sets, and the invisible Kyphrixis). 

Were any of those stretch goals that were previewed/revealed and not met? or were they literally surprises after KS ended?

But nothing huge and expensive like a $60 add on

 

i think I am dropping the boat too, not worth it for us and we probably wouldn't use it in gaming

Yah, unless something great is shown if/when they show pt3, I am passing.

Removing the boat put me at $2 short of what I pledged, I will have to add in something small from the coreset

They have bases for $2 in PM right now.

I hope the Reaper folks are whooping it up right now in celebration.

 

 Actually, I hope they're cleaning up and going home to sleep...

 

 At the mo, my list looks like this:

 

Paints A+B, cuz... paint.

High Rollers

Rocky the Red

Spartans, male + female

 

I'm definitely going to be adding in Izzy's art book, and getting doubles of basically everything on my list, as well as the Sophie and Friends set (cuz ya can't have a KS without getting a Sophie. There's like, a law, or something.)

Possibly adding in:

Small World Heroes

Villagers

Roc

King Cobra

Stones Tiles

Fantasy Scenics

Maybe Dod and Argent as well

well, I'm looking at just under $700. Still a lot less than last kickstarter, and even within throwing distance of my mental budget.

 

core, big demon guy, huntsman, trolls, amazons, tree of despair, glowy paints, baba's house, c-cans, Big Bird, giant girls (with clothes, even,) large-scale female demon (And brother), scenics, ent, one of each expansion and the barge. Plus spare apes for supers RPGs.

 

What I'm wondering is if reaper is going to add stuff in post-kickstarter, like last time.

 

The dragons, especally DoD look nice, but I have too many dragons from previous kickstarters already; I'll never paint them all. The giant snake would be fun to paint up as a jade statue for scenery, but I'm getting a ton of scenery this KS already. Dragon turtle for a space creature, but I've got space creatures already (Even if they aren't as nice, damit) Rocky to maybe give to cousins, but by the time the KS showed up they'd probably be out of the age range of appreciating them. dinosaurs. Dinosaurs. DINOSAURS (Forces my 10-year-old-self to look away from the pledge manager).

I pledged $300. Thought I was in pretty good shape, but pledge calculator has me at $993.00 + $25.82 shipping.... Gah.. $1018.82... So that means I have to find $718.82 before the pledge manager closes...

 

That breaks down to

$200.00 in Core

$57.00 in bases

$200.00 in expansions

$152.00 in core set extras

$4.00 in flight poles

$337.00 in Add ons

 just spot adding... This looks like it will be my most expensive Kickstarter. 2nd one was $800 in pirate ships and 3rd was bones 3...

I'll be pondering whether or not to add Argent and the Skeletal Dragon later.  I like them, and I did want to get a dragon this go-round, but boy did I blow the budget already.  Gotta start the restraint somewhere.  ::(:

 

Nyarlathotep is a must.

 

I'm a little frustrated by the Fan Favorites.  There are some things, maybe even "enough" things, that I want and can almost justify the expansion.  But I'm getting very strong reactions against the items that I don't want.  It's an extreme want/don't want situation.  I want those maggots.  I want the dark dwarves.  I want the Bog Skeletons.  I want that Mammoth.  The rest?  No--I just don't have a purpose for them.  Truthfully, I could do without the dwarves, but I like duergar like some folks like drow.

 

I had also hoped to see Stygian Barge III.  I am very intrigued by that...Charon?  Crowned Wraith King?  Inquiring minds want to know.

My pledge amount has been going down in each subsequent Bones kickstarter since the first. In Bones 3 I didn't even get the core or any of the expansions.

That looks to change with Bones 4. It's easier to list what I have little or no interest in than to list what I want.

No to:

The wraiths.

Paint set A.

Skeletal Monsters.

Nyarlathotep.

Chronoscope Expansion.

Fan Favorites Expansion.

 

On The Fence:

Dragon Turtle.

King of the Jungle.

King Cobra.

Agramon Duke of Hell.

Stones Tiles.

Argent.

Darkreach Expansion.

 

Whew!

And that was leaving off Baba yaga's hut (cause I don't think I would use it) and Dance of death (because I don't think it would work in a game... That does include 2 Argents and 2 Barges though...

Agreed. I like that Mammoth (actually want 2 -4) and I like the catfolk and bard... the rest I could live without...

This is about $300 more than Bones 3 for me... I did not get the expansions in 3... Really want to get them this time. Though Chronoscope is out... I like 4 figures in it and want 20 of 1 of those 4...

 

I hope they leave the pledge manager open a little longer this time.. Really want 4 of the barges.... I think I can make them into

A: a pirate ship

B: a pirate hunter

C: A flying ship

D: a Starwars Hutt Sky barge

 I had to work hard to narrow down my selections to the bare minimum of stuff I was absolutely positive I really wanted. Anything above and beyond that which might get added later is entirely dependent on finances and whether or not I find better things to spend my money on.

I held out well in the end.  Locked in for Nargaulath, Fire/Hill Giant Houndsmen, Blacksting, and the big Treant.  

 

So far I am still holding strong on NOT ordering DoD but it looked even better on the after party video.  I love it but I just have too many unpainted dragons so I really need to be strong.

 

That fan favorite Xpac has stuff that I absolutely love  (portal, slaad) but I'm going to have to wait for retail on those... hoping on seeing the slaad in metal tbh...

 

Will wait to see some of the concept art realized as masters before I decide on them... (frost giants, devils,nyarlathotep)

I ended up pledging less than what I know will be my minimum order. Decided that I could use the cash elsewhere right now. The PM will be used...

 

Definitely will buy

Core set

Dreadmere expansion

Lost valley expansion

Hill giants

Wraiths

Trolls

Baba Yaga's hut

Hill giant huntsman

Frost giant raiders

Fantasy scenics

 

This puts me at $347 with shipping which is my limit at the moment. I hadn't planned on buying a bunch of giants but after seeing the models and because I already own a few I went for groups of them.

 

Haven't worked out what my total list cost will be yet because I'm a bit scared to see it. :wacko:

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      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
