If you zoom in on the image you can see about 4 figures on deck in the render.

 

 

I've highlighted them in a full shot...

That is the current plan, yes.

They said the gun ports would be hinged.

depending on how thick the bottom is, you could always make some strategic slices and add in some fishing weights. The disc shaped ones I use to add weight to bases for large minis would probably work ok.

 

If the mass goes above the maximum possible displacement of the model, we call that jetsam. :B):

 

You would probably need to add ballast low and have some voids higher up to both keep it floating and keep it upright. (And I'd almost certainly still remove the masts or replace them with something very low density if I were trying to float the ship.)

They also said everything was subject to change.

It's a very big project and currently it's in its render stage. Hinges or removable decks might not work out in production, similarly to the chicken hut problem from Bones 4.

Per Ron, everything is changeable at this point, but both of those were mentioned as being in the current plan.

I hope this makes like 5k ppl or so to just add 100 to their pledge right now. The total will skyrocket and we'd unlock so much stuff.

Ooh, the ship doesn't have an official name yet.

 

So it's open to suggestions. Remember how Wyrmgear from KS 1 was fan named.

The PFS [Pirate Fleet Ship] Gimme Your Wallet

or

The PFS Sophie's Revenge  [with a tip of the tricorn to the Queen Anne's Revenge]

ARGH!

As spokesperson on behalf of L.O.T.S we are demanding a suitably sized KRAKEN as a necessary companion piece.

And a new category as well.

It would go into ordnance. But it's actually too large to be entered into the MSP Open by the rules.

Hence the need for a new and separate category.

Also, how long will that take to paint? 

 

Ships don't have pupils, so not at all long. :upside:

Now, for the haters, what are they saying is weak about the core set? It's supposed to be a basic foundation, with a decent variety, but that means not everything is going to appeal to everyone, but what the heck, you can always just break it down in the pledge manager later, right? Not sure what the issue is, unless they just expect Reaper to cater to their every whim.

 

I'm not "hating" the core set or expect Reaper to "cater to my every whim", but I'm not as enthusiastic as I was for it compared to previous Bones. The Bones V core set isn't as focused as Bones IV and other Bones cores for generic fantasy adventuring. Previous Bones did have odd miniatures, but they were added later in the campaign. So Bones V's core set looks more like a Fan Favorites expansion, rather than a Dungeon Dwellers one. Yet, at the same time, for Bones veterans, the Bones V core set heroes, villains, and dragons overlap with previous Bones KS releases. And it's also $20 more, with actual shipping costs no doubt rising.

 

And, for myself, $120 plus shipping is a fair amount of money.

I can see where this might be one of the ones that fall under the earlier pledge manager deadline.

 

From the KS:

"Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics. If you confirm your pledge late (after April 30, 2021) some items may not still be available. This means that part, if not all, of your rewards may not be available and/or your pledge may be forfeit."

 

Just something to keep in mind.

Actually, it was stated in yesterday's Kickstarter live stream that the core set will only be ~140 miniatures. 

 

It it is already at 127.

 

Maybe they weren't counting the "free" additions, such as the backer # goals & social media goals, but that would only take it up to ~145.

 

it was blatantly stated that they can only go so far before they actually lose money on the core set. 

 

Oh, wow - I was way off.  Thanks for clearing that up.

 

I was rounding up from the ~140ish(?) in B4core, scaled up for the higher price.

 

Even at 140, it’s still a great deal of course.

      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy
      First Legion Facebook
      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.
