Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

14 minutes ago, Chris Palmer said:

So did they say whether the ship was going to be Bones or Bones Black?  I know they've said the general plan was bigger things in Bones and smaller things in Bones Black, but I can't imagine boiling something as big as that ship... would have to use the bathtub!

 

And as far as making it sectional, if they plan to divide it into sections horizontally so the upper decks come off to access the lower decks, it would be impractical to then divide it vertically into sections as well.

They haven’t said anything about the material being used.

 

I’m wondering if the manufacturer they use has a plastic injection machine that will fit something that is almost 3 feet long.

I recommend Treasure Island, the 1990 version with Charlton Heston and a young Christian Bale and you've never heard of it before now because it's 'too faithful' to the book so critics didn't find it fun or light-hearted or all those things the book isn't.

Good luck finding a copy... I really liked that version too. 

I take it back... apparently it's only $9 on the big river?? I went looking for it years ago, and the only copies were stupid expensive. Woohoo!!

*clicks add to order*

Less than $30,000 to goal now...  Feels like it’s going to o be a long day.  Unless of course Reaper drops some surprise that gives pledging a shot in the arm for the weekend.

If people do them I'll still award their badge for it, but I've stopped encouraging people to do them so I cut it off at Ma'al and have been low key since.  This all started to show that Kaladrax wasn't so scary and grew from there, but Kaladrax was a $10 add-on.  Khanjira wasn't expensive either.  But as big pieces get bigger, and pricier, it was clear to me after Ma'al Drakkar that the choice becomes either halfway killing oneself for a decent paintjob, or doing it really sloppy to finish in time.  Ma'al retails at $150 US - that's a big purchase to expend for a small signature jpeg.  I think at this point it's best if people put real time into the big and fancy stuff, make it worth their while.  I expect the pirate ship will be pretty pricey as well.  There's nothing stoppng anyone from painting it as quick as they like, I just don't want to encourage people to burn up their fancy expensive minis for no real gain - or to nearly die trying.  It's a nice ship, take your time and show it some love.   

 

I think we'll see some great works on them.  Not sure how many epic mods though due bones being annoying to cut, etc.

I'm excited about the pirate ship, and I can't say as I've ever really run nautical campaigns. I had a friend who wanted to run one, but it lasted all of a session before imploding. I've got a papercraft airship that I've used as a ship once or twice, but this boat's just too cool not to get, TBH. I'd probably be able to use it far more often than Ma'al Drakar, at least...

A bigger shot in the arm than the ship?!?

While the pirate ship ship was a great surprise reveal; without a price attached, I don’t think it’s generating that much boost as far as pledging goes.

It's been live on Twitch for quite a while, with republication on YouTube a bit later. Since I don't see it yet on YouTube, I suspect somebody might not have thrown the switch to republish.

I concur. 6th rate. But that is about right for the largest ship classic pirates could manage to steal. 

 

Probably a bit big for that, because big crews are hard to beat in a boarding action, so it would take either an action in port or multiple ships. And you would be looking at serious retribution from whatever navy you stole it from as well.

 

Also, even if you're successful in capturing such a ship, it's hard to find and catch enough merchantmen rapidly enough to satisfy that big a crew. But it matches well with Hollywood pirate movies and would be perfect for an anti-pirate vessel.

 

And I wants it.

I looked closely for any sign of chase guns and I don’t see any. Chris Lewis might add some. But I checked the stern upper deck and it is all glass and no gunports; I checked the stern either side of the rudder didn’t see anything there; I checked the bows inboard of the anchors and nothing. 

 

I don't know that any are modeled. (That seems to be typical with plastic ships for gaming.) This won't stop me from assuming chasers when I use the ship.

 

Oh, and stern chasers were often put in the captain's cabin, the windows for which would have been removed when clearing for action. (Glass is both expensive and a major fragmentation hazard, so like virtually everything movable, it was brought below the waterline for a fight.

No, not necessary, but fun.

 

Which describes all miniatures, frankly. As much as I like miniatures for gaming, they offer no real utility advantages over counters with names (and often stats) written on them. We don't need them, we just want them. :poke:

Someone knows how to buy my loyalty :winkthumbs:

 

Welcome to WOOF, we have Bacon!

 

I'm really excited about the ship.

I already have two barges, will probably resell one.

 

So I will have an Undead and a Pirate/Conquistadore ship!

I have been looking at the Firelock ships, nice, but overall I think I will prefer this beastie.

The assembly of laser cut wood versus a premade Bones ship is a big issue for me.

Just picked up the Trumpeter 1/200 scale USS Hornet the other weekend, and the lower hull is one piece and it's about 4.5 feet long.  Whether or not Reaper would have access to the same manufacturer in China that Trumpeter uses, obviously I have no idea.  It's certainly going to be an expensive set of molds, that's for sure!  I suspect it'll get broken into quite a few sections.  I seriously doubt it'll be a 'pull out of box and play' option.

So, I dunno what the ship is going to be called on the box, but mine will likely be (when generically named) 

 

Sophie's Chance

 

because I can absolutely see Sophie being a devotee of Tymora (if in the Forgotten Realms or adjacent), and, for some reason "Sophie's Revenge" just doesn't roll off my tongue.

63.9 hours???

 

i also dont think the ship will entice many ppl. if it had a cost and a target on the map, then yes.

 

For the weekend, i hope they show greek 2, but then realized, that may not help much. $50 is already spent by many for the expansion.  showing part 2 may entice more, but a totally new model on the map coming up quick may be more useful.

      About
      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.
