Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Thing is, while the Reaper one is nice (of course I have one coming), base size he's bigger then standard 5e games vs the Wizkids ones. I don't have the Wizkids one (mainly due to run many dino encounters)  but that is one thing. Kinda like Treemoss vs the Wizkids treant & Treemoss is one of my favorite biggies errr minis in this KS!!

The other thing (for me) is this T-Rex is in a pose NOT conducive to the diorama I had in mind, which wizkids does. Don't get me I like this T-rex and the triceratops, but they'll now be used in a different project, not primeval world. Also need one of the old reaper pre-paints now:)

I'm glad that there are a handful of people with bigger boxes than me. Platypus I think is winning. 

 

Gotta say, the t-rex is one that did not impress me. The back doesn't fit well into its socket. It will take a lot of greenstuff. The triceratops however is AMAZING. Seriously, triceratops is amazing and holds up as a solid model versus Dark Sword's resin one. 

 

I airbrush primed my Skeletal Monsters. I am still bad at airbrushing. Good thing I have lots of practice material! 

Get yourself stynylrez from Badger, it is really forgiving on priming!

Not to mention the t-rex from wizkids is actually a zombie t-rex

It's a zombie T-Rex? Man, i'll need to look at him again:) No matter, he'll still pull off Primeval world.

 

BTW, did anyone here on the boards get the Chronoscope expansion? I mean from Canada:) I know a few US waves did:)

So I am shadow-coloring the skeletal monsters with a purple-brown. It smells like grape. My snot is glazed purple. I should probably get a mask.

Ceratopsian to the rescue!

Really!

 

Also, this is a ceratopsian, but it is NOT a Triceratops (Frill and cheek spikes give it away). Couldn't identify this specific one, so I'm assuming it's a unique ceratopsian made for Reaper.

 

It is a THUNDERHOOF!

A new species discovered by Reaper's Archeologists.

And I'm getting three so I can repopulate the Earth with them, I'm sure Johhny, Frank and Bill will do great!

*** Wait :blink:***

Theresa May is clearly a DM... 

 

The UK now apparently has a "Brexit flextension " until 31 October. If we don't take part in the elections for the thing we are leaving we have to leave the thing on 1 June without amy arrangements for moving things from the UK to the thing. If we ratify the previous deal to leave the thing then we have to leave the thing but then there will be customs arrangements with the thing making it clear that there are no costs for moving things from the UK to the thing. 

 

So more chance for people to get their Kickstarters which may well have been at the forefront of Theresa May's mind. 

 

 

WOOF will hold a ceremony for Special Double Agent May.

She will get the Medal Of Disruption and Chaos for her efforts!

Pet snakes?

Cool!

 

Make sure they're not exposed to chemical fumes due to glue/thinner/ spray paint and such.

 

I'm kinda jealous, I always need to set up and break down my painting stuff on the dinner or garden table.

No permanent spot yet ( the vixens need to leave the nest first or we need to move if I want that, sometime in the future, I hope)

 

Yeah I want my Bones as well.

I do have a whole toystore of  20 minis and busts waiting for paint in the garage, but still, I somehow NEED those dinos and that barge NOW!

Ohhhh, i would paint anywhere but i hate setting up all the time, and then packing away when i am done...i just want somewhere i can keep it all out for easier to go and just start.

 

I am so excited for my bones :) i have plenty of reaper stuff, and well lots of stuff....but somehow i just wanna paint Darkreach/Dreadmere, Dance with Dragons, Argent.... so many shinies :D 

 

I glue elsewhere in the house, i also don't have an airbrush for that reason, and i have very good air circulation in that room, open windows when i paint etc. 

 

I am protective of my babies, but they have always been around my painting, previously their tanks were on my paint desk :D if you look for my painting of "dragons dont share" I think in one picture you see my baby boy Kas - Ghost Corn :) 

 

i think they are looking forward to seeing my bones 4 minis around the room :D 

 

My kittens are looking forward to the box. "if i fits i sits"  They are currently obsessed with our laundry basket....and are happy to be carried in that :| Bengals are weird, one pure and one crossed with a british long hair (the cross is just as mental) a long haired Bengal is very interesting :D

Sounds good!

 

Did you pledge for the King Cobra?

 

I love painting reptiles and dinos, so much great patterns and colours.

I'm glad we're seeing shipping notifications rolling out to the US crowd.

 

I'm also glad that the Brexit delay came through and I can now be impatient for impatience sake, not because there  is money on the line.

Still hoping to hear when the ship is expected in GB though. A question about that on fb got answered by Matthew Clark, but he just said that there are more factors at play, because we're not just waiting for the ship to arrive, but also for the UK team to unload and ship them. 

Which ... makes sense, but the main hold up is still them waiting for a ship, and it would be great to know if it'll arrive in a few days or mid may.

I would have loved to get the T. rex and trike, but they were on the low priority list. 

 

I'm planning on painting my cobra as a malachite statue. I'm certain hubby can do something devilish with that :lol: I'm thinking I'll get some little gemstones for the eyes too. That would be wicked cool!

      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):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      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 ...
