Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

They are great for warbands, though. I'm a big fan of sets like that. In fact, I think that is one thing this KS is really killing.

boulderkin, undead, cat folk, skeleton pirates, dragonborn, elves - its like a whole SoBH/frostgrave league of minis available.

Whereas the Boulderkin are one of the parts I'm least interested in. I just don't need that many medium earth elementals at once.

Medium and small elementals are the ones I am MOST likely to use several at a time.

 

No one of them will do as much damage as a large elemental, but together, for the same CR, they do more.

 

Most often a large, and then enough medium or small to bring the encounter to the next level up.

I just think they would be fun to paint. And my wife might just steal them to paint herself.

 

They are also great for summoners who love bringing in multiple elementals

Haven't pledged yet as funds are low and several things are competing for them right now. Yeah, I know I won't be charged until the end but still. Most likely will have to start with a minimal pledge and add more later on. Not as excited about Bones 5 as earlier ones and yet my minimum is looking to be over $250. Well done Reaper when you can get that much out of me when I'm not excited. :rolleyes:

Pledge for $1 - gets you in and helps to push the number closer to the target of exceeding Bones 1 number of pledges.

I'll probably throw $50-100 at it before long.

Not to mention you'll be able to pay Kickstarter prices in the pledge manager, instead of the 20-50% more that a late backer would be paying...

I'm waiting for a few things to happen before I add money.

 

I want to see what's in the Dark Depth's Expansion ( complete) and I would like to know if they finally decide what material the ship will be and the price on that.

The Spider is a must and I would like to see how the Core Set will be split up for add ons, I like the Giant.

Also..waiting for that Chronoscope thing, I would love an A-Ford!

 

 

 

 

Okay, Since the Spider is a must I upped to $10 for now.

I'm in for a few pieces from the Bones 5 Core Set, but multiples of them, and a few pieces from the Bones 5 Options.

 

I need multiples of the Blighted Dryad and Briarlings, Elk, Giant Weasel, and Scarecrow.

 

I can also use one of the Money Lender, Burgermeister, and Noblewoman.

 

Then I need the Elf Rangers, Catfolk, Dreadmere Heroes, Dreadmere Villains, Female NPCs, and the Dark Elves.

 

I will also add the Dragonfolk and Townsfolk.

 

There are two or three pieces from each Expansion that I could also use, but I need multiples of them, and I don't have money to pay for multiple Expansions, so I will have to wait for retail.

 

Everything else, while awesome, is too huge or too random for me to use on game night.

I really don't get the opposition to a clear translucent ship, TBH. The argument that, if it's not opaque, it just can't be used right out of the box is weird to me. By that logic, they should be dyeing it brown in the manufacture so it's more "usable" right out of the box. If it's translucent, those who want it to be a ghost ship can use it, and those who want it to not be can use it straight out of the box before painting it, and can paint it to be opaque. If it's opaque, it might as well come pre-dyed anyway, since I'm going to have to paint it anyway, and I can't get a ghost ship out of it either way.

I'm definitely throwing more at this then I thought I would.

 

I've pledged for:- The Greek Expansion, the Storm Giant and the Rune Wights.

From the core set I'm hoping to get:- Both Kid Hero sets, the Dark Elves, the Trolls, the Female NPCs and the Witch, so far. (Plus there's a few minis I like from the starter bunch, but I don't think that gets split up).

 

Plus I've already got a handful of stuff I want to get at retail (Sea Ogres, Earth Scion, both Onis and the Spider-Lady).

 

And now I've looked at everything, I'm once again tempted by the Dungeon Dwellers Expansion...

      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.

      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.
