Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I fully intend to ask about separating the cannons out from the ship on today's twitch live stream if I can watch it.  

I've started typing up several other questions to spam them with, too ::D:

Can't watch the stream, do you mind asking about how many other encounter sets they have in the works, if you get a chance?

I will add it to my list.   

Of course, I can ask all the questions I like, doesn't mean they'll notice them in the torrent that is the twitch chat.

If they are going to beat wizkids boat.  It needs playable interior.

I would certainly prefer a playable interior, but at several inches longer and likely 50-100 bucks cheaper at retail*, I think it's already beating the "Falling Star."

 

 

*This is a guess, based on the retail price of Ma'al Drakar. It may be totally wrong. But I'd still expect RSS Dark Maiden to be significantly less expensive than a prepainted, pre-magnetized piece sold under license.

Wizkids announced their unpainted ship last friday or so, so there is direct competition now. It's 100$ cheaper than the painted version.

I would say your guess is wrong.  The ship is going to be more than twice the material of Maal-Drakar.  While a lower price would help.  I dont think its going to be lower,

Ah, this is news to me. In that case, here's hoping the Reaper ship hews close to the same price.

The Barge was a $30 add on, this one is like three times larger?

And prices have gone up. So a $100 would be expected.

Not much to talk about at the moment. We're definitely in that slowdown period.

 

I'm hoping the next reveal is part 2 of the Greek Expansion to try to kickstart (heh) the pledges.

That makes sense, both for starting and stopping.

 

But I did find them really inspirational. I only started hanging out on this forum at all because the challenges were such a compelling concept. It also gave me a great excuse to paint DDS; not only did I have much more fun doing it with the constraints than I would have otherwise, it actually got done instead of sitting half-finished for years. It also got me in the habit of painting for a good long time, which meant that much more than just the challenge piece got finished.

 

So, not arguing with anything you said, but I really hope you don't think they were a waste. At the cost of a few pixels, you got me doing more and better work, and enjoying it much more, and I doubt I'm alone in that.

 

I'm glad it had a positive effect all around, it's better to paint than not to paint!

Same.  I know we've seen at least 3 Human Heroes and a Minotaur...I wonder what else there will be.  I'm imagining the Cloud Giant will also be an add-on during that period, sort of like the big dinosaurs and Lost Valley during Bones 4.

@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:

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D 

 

Time to put your boot down on this one. Even if he buys them and you never paint them, it's only a matter of time before you accidentally spot one on a shelf or table when you least expect it and nobody wants that.

      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.
