Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I almost regret not getting Argent.  I know I'd never get him painted, though...even though I have ideas.


Blacksting looks great.  


My Mumlak will never look that good.  I have no idea what I'm going to do with that guy--he's huge!


Rocky is cute.


I passed on the others.  Nothing against them, I'm just being a boring, (semi-)responsible adult. *blech*

IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

Had we seen Argent with all his scales before? I don't think so, but I might be forgetting one of the 111 updates. 

Anyhow, I like him a lot, very regal. 

Yes, as a low quality 3D print in the Live Stream/post LS update.


It was important to me to be able to post the final production version after the in process render and that low quality print.

I had hoped for a painted to share, but it was not to be.


Watch for a poll coming later today(might be tomorrow) for the next few updates.  I've got everything mapped out but have flexibility on the order shown.  I'm going to let yall have some input because I had fun with that last time.

I passed on Dance of Death, mostly because I try to buy miniatures that might see some playtime, not just be for display, and I didn't think I could make that work in any way. I picked up 2 copies of Argent, however - one to be a Christmas gift for a friend in 2019, and the other to be a Platinum dragon alongside my Ma'al Drakar. I got Rocky at my wife's request (first time she's ever insisted I back a specific miniature), and I have the Roc on order, too. Still not sure if I'll paint it up as a Roc or as a Phoenix. I really wish we'd been able to get that in translucent plastic as well...

Right, I have been thinking, I pledged for two of the Barges.

I want one to be as is, but the other?


I have been thinking about cutting the second one up to create shipwreck terrain.

Another idea was an Undead landship with some kind of bone wheels and a torn sail.


But now...

I'm thinking about cutting up the Roc, use the wings to create a flying ship.

Use the neck/head as a figurehead, maybe even apply the legs.

Or maybe use the legs form the Baba Yaga hut?


Maybe use Dragon wings and a Dragon head instead of the Roc's?


Is there a clear flying stand available somewhere that could hold a large model like this?

It might be better/more stable to have multiple flight stands alone the base given the size; ie. one under the front 1/3, one in the middle, and one under the back 1/3.

I would definitely second Disserma's suggestion of multiple bases.  You might be able to find some secondary market bases for the "huge" X-Wing ships.  That would put the barge pretty high off the ground, though.  Not necessarily bad, just something to be aware of.

      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
