Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

True, that is correct, but I still hold that nothing cannot be undone until the physical copies are made. Even then, modifications are discussed.

 

I hope you're right.

As my first post in this thread, since I tend to largely ignore Bones kickstarters once they have my money, I'll pitch in my two cents on the frost giants.

 

Not really a fan. Especially not on the one with a helm. That one just looks weird. The other one is kind of an "eh, I guess" but the one with the helm just doesn't look right to me at all.

 

I think they would have been just fine without the obvious boobs.

Still in doubt about the King Cobra, on the one hand I love reptilian minis ( hence my Lost world Project) on the other hand do I need another gigantic snake?

Also, somehow I dislike the scales on this one.

I will have to think about it yet.

The giantess without the helmet but With caribou looks OK to me. Whether or not she needs to lose a cup size is just a minor detail.

 

The helmeted one needs to lose the bird on the helmet. It just looks wrong.

Also, I assume that she's only wearing partial armor, to protect the soft belly, and that her breasts are covered by fabric or soft leather. (stuffed in under the edge of the top of her belly armor)

But even With those assumptions it still looks... not right.

 

There was an 'in Comic discussion' about 'figure shaped' armor in the 'By The Book' Comic recently,

(Not linked because... Yeah...  don't want to cause nosebleeds... )

f5 ..

perhaps an updated Argent? 

- im still on the fence between Dance of Death and Argent. 

 

 

Argent seems like the better gaming bet, if you think you might need a tremendahugely ginormtic dragon. On the other hand, "Dance of Death" would be a truly beautiful display piece.

 

Which is to say, I guess I get your conundrum.

 

ETA: Of course, now it occurs to me that the two dragons from "Dance of Death" can almost certainly be easily removed from the display piece, and mounted separately. It's like 3 items for once price. (dragon 1, dragon 2, terrain piece.)

I pledged for the concept art of the frost giant raider and I'm also really disappointed about the sculpt with the obvious big boobs.

 

That's not the first time it happens on a Bones Kickstarter, is there any official statement from Reaper staff about this issue?

Since I just paint for display (resell also haha), I haven't felt a need for fantasy scenics or those 50 dollar tiles.

I am curious though, is anyone getting chronoscope expansion set?

I am!

 

The ones I'm still iffy on are:

Blacktooth

Cobra

King of the jungle

 

Pretty sure I'll get at least 2/3 of them...

I think I assumed the Frost Giants were still a WIP because we didn't get 360 degree videos of them that Reaper tends to do for most of the other ones they've shown in updates.

 

I agree the bird helmet looks a little off, maybe if the wings wrapped around with the helmet instead of sticking straight out?

The bird on the helmet was on the concept art; that part stayed pretty true.

i'm really hoping the wolf is WIP, to be honest

 

i loved its menacing prowl posture, but it's gone to a very static 'snarl' pose that doens't look at dynamic or interested =(

i'm not saying any of this to be rude to Jason Wiebe, i'm merely trying to voice my disappointment over the changes from the concept art

Still no response to the disappointment some of us had about the giant's surprise armor to cleavage ratio change, or the wolf's head position. Not in the updates, the kickstarter comments, or the forums.(ب_ب)

 

I like the devil ruler, although her wings look a bit big. Very intimidating though. The stance has her looking down, which is excellent, and she's way bigger than I expected. Very tempted to add that set. Thinking each one might cost about $18 or so at retail. They'll look powerful standing next to the Bones 2 devils.

I'm not super thrilled about the addition of boob windows to the frost giantesses either, honestly.

I liked them better without the cleavage. They looked fierce, they looked deadly - danger on feet that just happened to be female - and they did not need gratuitous cleavage.

If there is still a chance to have that altered, add my voice to the ones asking that they be sculpted a little closer to the concept art.

 

I do like the demoness. I like her a lot. She's terrifying, and on her, the cleavage works and is appropriate. ^^;

      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 ...
