Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

So far, not really feeling the reveal of part 2 of the Greek expansion.  So far, only the Bronze Golem really jumps out at me, so I guess I'll be waiting for retail for him, and hopefully not having as long as of a wait for one like the Iron Golem.  Been waiting months to get a second one. 

 

I do know a number of people were looking forward to the new Yephima being in there, so I'm happy for them ^_^

It looks a bit unfinished to me too.   Other than that I like it quite a bit.  Have a player who is always asking to borrow lions and gladiators.  Going to point him at this. 

 

 

i think it's the hind leg especially, but also the feet. They don't have those big exaggerated toes a lion has, but are more condensed down like a canine's. 

The knee though, seems to have too much bend to it. Both at the knee, and the curve leading from knee to ankle

 

but i know i'm in the minority haha, and that animal anatomy is a big part on if i will actually like a mini or not. over all part 2 is a bit 'meh' for me, but i still like part 1 enough to stay in for it

My only issue with the second part of the Greek expansion is there is only one Leucrotta. I need at least 5 of those! I have used those against my players and they HATE them but said it was such a fun fight!

 

I was already in for the Greek expac and I am happy with the second part. I wish there were a few more minis but they seem to be throwing in big stuff so I can't complain and I don't hate anything in it and will use everything they have revealed thus far.

My initial thought was "the leucrotta looks kind of dumb". Then I looked up the actual leucrotta and indeed it looks kind of dumb. It's supposed to look kind of dumb, like one of those "a wizard did it" monsters :mellow: Durn drunken wizards, stop snorting your spell components!

 

Success, then?

 

I already have money on this expansion. Still not regretting it ::D:

Yeah, I bought the original Bones Yephima a year or two ago... and was quite disappointed in the size.  She's no bigger than the 2004 D&D Frost Giant mini, so I was planning to have to paint her up as a Frost Giant.  With this new Huge version, I suppose I can paint her up as a child Cloud Giant (but the fact she is sexually developed, while being the approximate proportional size of a 6-year old... kind of throws a wrench in that, at least for me).

 

Here she is next to the first D&D 3e Frost Giant, and the first Pathfinder Frost Giant.

i like most of it, but not a fan of the Nemean lion. I hope it's a WIp render. that hind leg looks really odd

 

it's almost like it has a human knee, not a feline knee

 

if that is for sure the finished project, then it is one i shall either be resculpting all four limbs on or box of goodwilling. No offense to the sculptor of course, just speaking my opinion. 

I noticed the same thing and posted a remarkin the comments section of the update.

And now I can’t help but think of a couple of goblins in a poorly made pantomime lion costume going out and performing nefarious deeds.AC275161-19DC-40EF-8CB7-848A762ECFE9.thumb.jpeg.9a10ecb3ff270252099c2df640e5da67.jpeg

It looks a bit off to me too.  Maybe it’s the render or the angle, but it looks kind of cartoony.

 

I think the forelegs look too thick compared to the hind legs.  The “wrists” look swollen and stiff.

I don't want to be nitpicky or accused of attacking the sculptor though, do I shall leave it be. 

 

Maybe when I get mine I shall cut it down and pose.it dead with Heracules standing over it

Oh it would be plain awesome if the head could comes off & goblins were sculpted inside of it!  Like their head & shoulders.

 

Make it so Reaper!!

I feel like this sums up my feelings on it - I liked how many minis the dungeon dwellers expansion had just for dollars per mini, and I'm a little disappointed that the greek expansion seems to be going to be a much smaller amount of minis, but its definitely still worth it. If part one had 8 minis, part two 7, then presuming another 7-8 gets us close to 25 minis gets us to aprox. $2 per mini.

 

.... and you can't really argue with a $2 hydra or giant like that.

The showed a graphic that had Yephima and said Greek expansion 2... 

 

I wasn’t planning on getting the Greek expansion so this probably means I have to wait til retail for her. But who knows what I will add in the PM. 
 

they also said they will talk to Ed about a cannon pack. I am excited for a canon pack. 

 

That would be awesome!

I would definitely get some of those for my Expedition into the Lost World.

Greek Exp keeps looking good, only up to three minis I don't like (Hydra, Lion and other Cat).

 

At this point, Part three could be a total failure (although I hope it isn't) and it would still be worth getting.

There are a few very nice things in this KS, but so far it will all be retail purchases, or maybe just a few things now.

Waiting to see what material the ship will be made off and the price tag on that one.

 

Should they bring out a Ship's Cannon pack, that I will get and probably that lovely Spider.

I wish there will be more of interest in the next Depth Expansion part for me.

 

Or surprise me with a Dimetrodon, Aztec style warriors.

If the rumours of an oldtimer ( A Ford/T-Ford?) are true then I will want that, maybe include a female explorer with a tropical helmet and a gun and I will be all over that!

( Someone has to excavate the Undead hidden in the Desert!)

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      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.
