Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4


Recommended Posts

I'd love some more Mythos based minis and more fey type beasties would definitely be welcome. A big sea dragon would be great (the bones 5 one is adorbs, but a bit small) and I'm still holding out for a nice big Coatl/feathered serpent. 

 

Some more Julie Guthrie dragons would be awesome and if Andy Pieper could do some more monsters then that would be amazing.

 

Also, any chance of a life sized faerie dragon? Christine van Patten would do a phenomenal one, I'm sure!

And I'm not familiar with the characters, but if there's another Fan Favorites expansion, if someone would be kind enough to grant this gentleman's humble request, that would be fantastic - I don't think I know of a more dedicated and patient fan of Reaper's characters 🙂

 

 

Wow! Thanks!

 

Oh, and while I'm at it, I really would like to see Roderic Ambermead and Glitter brought to Bones! It would make building an arial squad so much easier, and less expensive, for my Warlord Halfing Faction! 😄

 I wonder if there's a market for just generic ship hulls of various sizes that we can scratch-build our own decks, cabins, and stuff onto, so that modelers can make their own custom ships in different styles?  Just a thought there, but seems like a generic hull could be as easily converted into a schooner, or junk, or steamship, or ironclad, or spelljammer, or whatever else we can imagine.....  (The biggest hurdle that occurs to me first is that this doesn't fit in with Reaper's table-ready philosophy for Bones figures, but it seems to me that these big multi-part models like the Sophie's Revenge are a very different story from the regular minis!)

Interesting idea. I'm not sure if the growing popularity of 3d Printing would help or hurt this idea - on one hand, I could see the market that would buy a generic hull go "Nah, I'll just 3d print it". On the other, I could see people like myself creating all sorts of 3d files to go with it. 

Maybe that's an idea - produce a generic hull, and bundle it with a code to redeem for a wide variety of STLs to use to customize it.

I think unfortunately, just because of the nature of the Chronoscope line, it doesn't lend itself well to coherent Expansions - reprints-in-plastic run into the problem that the line isn't very large, compared to the fantasy lines, and that increases the chances that people already have significant numbers of the minis in question in metal (which can be fine, if they're grunts - not so great if they're PC types), and the "genre" is so diffuse ("anything that isn't fantasy" is a pretty broad spectrum) that it can make it hard to support value in a $50 expansion, unless focused and mostly new sculpts.

I think the Chronoscope Expansions we've seen have been the victims of the same scattershot approach that Reaper has taken with the Chronoscope line.  I love that it's a kitchen sink of everything but fantasy because it opens up so many wonderful possibilities, but so much of the potential is left to whither on the vine. There are at least three dozen sculpts in that range that are deserving of receiving 3-5 companion sculpts to make small skirmish units with.   Bones 6 could do the Chronoscope line a huge favor simply by taking  a handful of popular Chronoscope sculpts, and adding sculpts that would turn them into skirmish units, and doing them as small $8-20 add ons. 


Anyway, I came here to talk about possible ideas for the Bones 6 "Grand Finale".    I personally don't think it should be a single huge mini like Ma'al Drakar or Sophie's Revenge.  I'd actually rather see it be a large set, more like Dragon's Don't Share II from Bones 2 with multiple minis and terrain.  Only instead of it being some stand alone set, use the idea of Encounters from Bones 5 as a build up to it, so by the time the Bones 6 KS ends, you have 3-4 encounters that all build towards a final "goal".    Anyone who picks up all of them would end up with what amounts to a table full of themed terrain, a party of adventurers/npcs and some opposition or a couple sets of skirmish forces.  Throw in an RPG adventure pdf for good measure. 

Reaper has shown they can do this sort of theming with their ReaperCon events, so why not carry it into a KS.

I'd love to see some rather generic birds and similar sets. Ones that can be used for more of filling out terrain or bases similar to the vulture set. Something like a flock of pigeons or doves taking off could also be fun to have.

 

I like the crows/ravens one in metal, it's just one where the base on it sticks out like a sore thumb that doesn't work with a lot of things.

 

Also a rather generic set of pet animals would be a nice one, something similar to the familiar packs that are more of a couple dogs and cats.

I like the generic warriors with shaman idea, I've been suggesting some pulp islanders/natives for a while, and it seems to me like they fit the recent Pirate theme nicely.

I'd like to see some more fantasy-esque islanders.  More people from a jungle/beach/island society - less cannibal savage problematic cliché. Maybe something based on the heroes and legends of Polynesian mythologies - similar to the Greek Odyssey set being based on Greek myths.

Hi Folks!

 

Just thought I'd drop by and say I think a resculpt of Roderic and Glitter for Bones 6 would be awesome! There's nothing wrong with the original sculpt and if that was what we could get I'd be ok with that, but I think it would be even more awesome if we could get the pair in an action pose! Even more awesome would be if we could get the current sculpt and a more kinetic sculpt into Bones 6!

For the Bones USA or Black lines, I'd love to see several of the flags and banners available. Things like the pirate flag from the pirate king and queen along with the standard set, they're useful for a lot of things there.

Something I realized yesterday from looking at painted examples. We need a High Rollers female edition! :wub: The originals have a lot of character, but all sport male facial features.

 

We still got plenty of archetypical classes to choose from: Holy knight/paladin, druid + animal companion, necromancer, assassin, sorceress, barbarian/berserker, etc.

For the November free bones figure I would like to see a pilgrim figure in honor of the first Thanksgiving 400 years ago.

I'd like to see a pack with a male and female pilgrim along with a turkey
