Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

just no female mammalian features unless you're a mammal!

i'm taking those breasts off the female snake person in the core, because it's bloody ridiculous ::P: absolutely no purpose. Her thin waist and larger hips already denote her female, she doens't need useless breasts too haha

See, you're just getting hung up on your mammalian instincts. She doesn't have breasts. As a female, she has enlarged venom sacks due to her much more potent venom, but most humanoids just assume that their breasts.

That's a new way of rewording armed and dangerous....  Or dangerous even without weapons...

I can't take credit for the basic idea - I saw someone suggest that interpretation on the KS comments ages ago.

Good to see that someone remembered my explanation! ::D:

Well, Mantic had some 'female' octopus critters in their Dreadball game - but that was because the Nameless discovered that human teams found them distracting... (And were in no way an indicator of whether the octopus critter was male or female.... Mimic octopus bewbs....)

The only problem I have with the breast area is that it marks one as "other" from the rest of them. Otherwise they could all be male or female. Will probably cut them off for that reason and try to paint them more 50/50 or gender ambiguous.

Reason for mammalian breasts could be that some groups of snake people used to be people people, and turned themselves partially into snakes for religious reasons, with some showing better results than others (the worst of them just getting slit eyes or a split tongue).

Maybe that lady just failed to snakify her chest.

[MOD]

Gender differences in toy models have multiple other threads already available to have this discussion.

 

Please continue your conversation on this topic in a more appropriate thread.

Does bring up an interesting question: what modifications are you planning already?

 

The dancing girl from the core set is going to become a smaller genie. Gonna cut her off at the knees or waist and sculpt smoke coming out of a bottle.

I was only planning minor things off the bat: flames on the roc to make it a Phoenix, try to make the frost giant ladies look more like their artwork, and get a bunch of turtles and give them different cargo, so I'd have a turtle caravan. 

 

I guess the turtle one isn't so little. :rolleyes:

 

I feel like the Minotaur in Sophie and friends should be painted up like a Scottish highland cow. She looks like one.

Tentacles for the not-beholder as commented a few sites before (man, this thread sure moves fast).

Other than that, I try to not set too many goals as to what to work on, as it will probably take some time for me to get to that project anyway.

      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 ...
