Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

New official photo of the Treasure Golem:

 

Interesting that they're anticipating that many backers!

 

Also, just noticed we are less than $20,000 to the next goal now...

Guardians of the Galaxy has high tech space vehicles with a CASSETTE DECK!

I always presumed that was because he was abducted from early 80s Earth with his Walkman and the one tape. 

Plus wouldn't Guardians of the Galaxy be more of an alternate near future, rather than just sci-fi? 

For the Gem Dragon, I got the impression their idea was that each core set gets a random color, but that they'll rethink that based on us backers.  The twitch chat was pretty clear we wanted clear, but we may have to keep the pressure on them between now and fulfillment to nail them down on that.

I'll be honest, I'm just not into the translucent figures. I get it for some, and it is nice for tabletop ethereal stuff when I'm lazy.... but I don't really enjoy painting them. Yeah, I can prime over it and they'll be opaque, but there is something about them that automatically makes me go "meh" in general. A good figure is still a good figure, but if I had a vote on opaque vs transparent, I'd say opaque every time.

 

Whereas I'm somewhat the opposite - I'd almost rather all miniatures be translucent, so that you can have ghost/invisible versions of them, or opaque versions, or both. I really liked Bones 3's invisible adventurer minis, and made it a point to get 2 versions of each so that I have an opaque and invisible version of each character. I'd love to have even more variety for that. Packaging for invisible minis is a bit harder to work out, though, so that's a definite issue.

Of course, none of the official Reaperpeeps at that moment were Ron, so who knows.

 

I find it interesting that Justin was suggesting that they could do random colors (pledge for one, don't know what would come in your box), then people could trade them. He made it sound like Reaper was cool with this... Which leads me to wonder, to what extent is Reaper rethinking trading policy for this forum?

 

(The answer, I'm fairly sure, is that they're not thinking about this forum at all, when it comes to their social media plans...)

 

Regardless, I'm still pretty against random colors. Clear or solid, color if it's appropriate, but please don't make us guess!

I'm definitely against random colors. I'd much rather have clear translucent, so that I can colour it as I see fit. Winding up with a random coloured one would be kind of annoying.

No offense to Cadirith, but the new spider looks much better overall.

Looking at that spider, I bet some enterprising Goblins could construct a mighty substantial superstructure and/or howdah on the back of it, complete with all manner of nasty weaponage...::D:

 

Something with two levels even; one on the front and one up on the back with a tiny ladder connecting them...

 

Could probably pile a dozen goblins on it too...

There's a bunch of kobolds to crew such a howda in the Core already ;)

Oh, that's right!

 

 

Just had the thought that it would make a great mount for a Dark Elf knight as well.  Might have to do some surgery with the bottom half of one of the mounted figures from Bones 4 and the top half of one of the Dark Elves from the Core...

Now I see it better, it really really really looks very similar to the Aracknarok from GW; in size, pose, and style

It's a lovely model, but it is way overpriced. I had great fun painting one up as a Leng Spider, but one of our cats took exception to it and stomped 3 of it's legs off before we could haul her away from it. Thankfully, I hadn't attached the howdah at that point so she didn't hurt herself. 

 

I'm guessing that the kitteh racial memory will be triggered by that new spider too, so I'll have to invest in some sturdy storage boxes nearer the time.

Wow. Kitty going beast mode on a spider mini? Never seen that before.

I did have a cat start freaking out at my T'Raukzul mini at one point, but she didn't attack it. Just kept looking at it and watching it for a while...

Maybe.  It's an interesting way to write it.  Either they are going to do like you say, and do a variety each in its own color.  But I doubt they will get involved with folks picking a color; so you'll wind up with a random one?.

This is what they alluded to in yesterday's ... Bones 5 Live? (Maybe Reaper Live.)  Different colors of translucent, and it would be random which one came in your core set.

 

Really hope they do a clear as well as other colors, assuming they go that route, as there is a clear gem dragon in D&D.

Did he state what size that base was?  I'm assuming 130 mm?

      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 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.

      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.
