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

Only I'm sure it costs about 1/5th the price.

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?

No, not in the post I saw at least.

      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.
