Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

@TaleSpinner please don't take this the wrong way, because your creation is truly glorious. But. My brain is finding her somewhat terrifying and I don't think I could handle having her on my painting desk.

 

.... I just showed it to MrBoot and he wants you to know that he wants to get two. 

 

:zombie::zombie::zombie:

 

I told him I'm not painting them. :upside:

Think of it this way. The more you get an arachnophobe to NOPE out of there, the better looking your spider must be :;,;:

 

^This. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

I have the cave spider, its about half the size this one will be maybe less. I have to double check, but I’m pretty sure the abdomen alone will be 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter. Total length of the body from fangs to bum should be around 4 in. Maybe a bit more.   I’ll check the measurements tomorrow. 

 

As for the Shelob references, ...I mean it’s not like I’ve read LOTR 17 times or anything.

 

Not sure on the Shelob vs Ungoliant question, Tolkien wasn’t always clear on size. @Loim is a better Silmarillion scholar than I.

 

I’m glad you all are liking her. Sorry to the arachnophobes.

 

Gotta give a lot of credit to Ron though, he really pushed me to be better with this one than I would have done alone. 

I’d say she’s Shelob sized. Ungoliant was described as mountainously huge (until she ate herself). You’d at least need to double the size of that spider to do her justice.
 

I imagine a spider 10+ inches around would probably scare everyone away from the Kickstarter though :rolleyes:

So, is the new place big enough for Mr. Boot to have his own paint desk??

Technically yes, but he really has no interest in painting. I did eventually coax him into painting a Bones table several months ago, but that's as far as it's gone. 

 

I on the other hand have an entire painting room to myself now, and it's glorious. :wub:

 

Huzzah!

Curious about this new spider.  Will there be a support underneath? If so can the spider be removed from it,  to allow for easier underbelly painting. One thing that is annoying is retail cave spider is stuck on the stalagmite. I'm  not sure if KS spider was seperate.

Lots of people have been spamming the comments of the Kickstarter with their wish lists for minis.

 

Does Reaper pull the ideas for the "fan favorites" minis from the "Bones You'd Like to See" thread on the forum, or do they pull them from the comments of the Kickstarter?

Mostly from the Forum thread, they need time to work on concept art and then have it sculpted and such, comments in the KS might lead to ideas for the next KS I guess.

I have looked at the current KS and I believe Reaper has listened well to wishes uttered in the Bones you'd like to see thread!

At this point a bit of both.

 

Reaper does compile a list from the Bones You’d Like To See thread here on the forum,  which is where a lot of the concepts for the minis you are seeing 3D prints of and renders come from, but they also pay some attention to the comments on kickstarter and other social media.

Hence the Dire Cabbage.

I'm still really looking for fey. In the Bones we'd like to see Thread that took off with people coming up with ideas for a whole fey expansion, but expansion slots seem to be full. I hope in a Fan Favorites expansion we'd see a few of the smaller, pixie sized fey for summoning and general decoration in Bones Black. 

I have a soft spot for everything fey, I really need to run a campaign in the fey realms (along a coast most likely, got a ship to justify :lol:)

She’s free standing, with no base attachment at all. She has 5 contact points: 4 legs and her abdomen just touches the ground.

Thanks, good to know.

One of the things that bothered me with the cave spider was the way it is attached to the base making painting the belly and the base quite difficult.

 

Your new Spider looks awesome!

I wished they would put a price tag on the ship, I'm sure it would help.

 

Also, since they already have to cast the ship's guns, please add one of those guns as a separate add on like the catapult?

I'm sure many gamers/collectors would buy those guns while only a few will buy the whole ship.

      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.

      Tomb Guardians use many of the same sculptors as Reaper so some of the sculpting styles might seem familiar.
