Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I’m psyched for the Leucrotta more than anything else. An adventure I want to run has them as an encounter, and I had no idea what to use to represent them.

To be fair I have always thought exactly the same thing looking at Axe-beak/terror birds. 

such a lovely concept  (pre-historic apex predator,  who reigned for 30k + years?)  but it just looks so dumb. 

I just want artists to start making them look like Chocobos.

nope still think they look silly. 

Checked the terror birds on Wikipedia was off by a few decimals: Habitat South America, 68 million - 1.5 million  BC.

I have one from Lost Valley expansion but will never paint it, I should just move it to a give-away box. 

 

As for the greek expansion, went back over the earlier part of the thread - 

a Cerberus was mentioned in the display case at Reapercon,  and a Hippogriff (not sure if hippogriff is really greek) 

everything else we have seen.  

I think this expansion is more of stuff to pick up in retail (bronze golem is a must-have for me) 

- similar to the Dayaimo expansion & its gate and dragon. 

 

The Giants are good, but I am learning they are not my fav things to paint. 

I have unfinished Frost and Fire Giants on my desk right now.   Frost Giant is part of my goals for this month, im 3 hrs in,  and I keep getting distracted.

I'm looking at that Hercules figure and thinking that looks a lot like a greek fellow I used to work with. Big beard, curly hair, barrel chested. Put him in a lion skin and he could have been the model for that piece. For me, I'm not going to have any problems imagining that mini as a greek hero. For my money that's a great addition to the set.

If you've played Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, you'd know that chocobos are anything but friendly. They're the most dangerous predators in the game...

He also looks not unlike Nigel Green from Jason & the Argonauts, which may be the intention.

Just because one is a dangerous, vicious predator doesn’t mean they aren’t still friendly. I mean, I think bears are friendly, but they’d still eat me.

I did not originally read the section you quoted, so I thought you were still talking about chocobos... And I was CONFUSED.

They guy on the left looks like he is TOTALLY into bearded dudes...

 

That aside, I've heard it mentioned by the guys on Twitch that if certain conditions are met they will be  giving away a full set  of paints.  I missed the details, anyone else hear that and know the specifics?

 

Thanks.

Giving away to someone on Twitch, or giving away as in being part of the Core?

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.

      From the team behind hit games Hellboy: The Board Game and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf’s Kings Quest, League of Infamy is an occasionally co-operative dungeon crawler for up to 5 players, where it pays to commit dastardly deeds and partake in foul thievery – often against your own party.
      Join a rogue’s gallery of misfits, ne’er-do-wells and miscreants on a disgraceful mission to kidnap cute little baby Drakons, steal their eggs and viciously wipe out any irritating, goody-goody Elves that try to stop your nefarious schemes.
      But it’s not just the Elves you’ll need to keep a wary eye on. Your fellow (mis)adventurers are just as likely to betray you and steal your loot, shove you into harm’s way or just leave you in a dungeon full of unbeatable foes. As they like to say in the League of Infamy – ‘keep your enemies close but keep your friends at knifepoint’. 
       
      In the limited edition No Half Measures expansion, you must investigate reports of an ancient form of long-forgotten magic: gastromancy! Deal with halflings as strong as an ogre or tricky traps with toxic poisons. It's not all bad though, because you might come across a tasty pie or two to loot!
      In the Kickstarter Exclusive Siren's Wrath expansion, the League is furious that the Trident Realm is messing with one of its most important trade routes... which absolutely won't do! You're sent in to raid the Trident Realm keep and gather as many goods as you can. However, this will be your hardest mission yet, as the Keep Master takes advantage of the aquatic landscape to boost their Defenders.

      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 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.
