Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Just now, emmagine said:

Or it could be that as an avid reaper fan, they've already made everything you yearned for?

 

Aside from a few things, this might be true.

Still going to get the spider!

 

I hope the smaller boat that was hinted at makes an appearance soon, that looked interesting!

Here is the updated graphs for Bones 5 vs the Bones 2-4. Bones 2,3 were stretched to equalize the days.

 

Bones 5 projection in Yellow is if Bones 5 gets the same money as  Bones 4 for the remainder of campaign. The %Projection (Green) is based on my belief that we will grow more than Bones 4 due to the larger number of backers. I used the the % of total (for Bones 4) for each of the remaining days extrapolated for Bones 5.

Thanks for posting this.  I think the % projection makes more sense as well, which would put the total well over $4M.  No reason to expect that B5 will start tracking like B4 if it’s been higher than B4 up until now.

 

Series 7 is Bones 1?  Also, is Bones 2 not plotted?  It’s in the legend, but i don’t see it on the chart.

I agree, I'm a bit saturated on the humongous mini front.

The ship might be the exception, but I don't need huge monsters now.

I like some vehicles and boats and terrain stuff though.

 

 

we're the reverse. We feel like we have enough adventurers, NPCs, bad guys, and generic monster villains to be set. 

So now i'm just after stuff to paint, which is the humongous minis and the monsters haha

Just haven't added Bones 1 yet. But 1 was definitely a different animal to the others

 

Of course - wasn’t thinking.  B1 would look totally different.  So is B2 the dark blue/series 7?

Oh I like the big monsters, just nothing as big as Maáldrakar anymore ( except the ship) I do hope the Undead Giant of the Core Set will become an add on like they did with Gauth last time.

I like that Zombie Giant, he will be fun to paint with those vultures and that cartwheel.

 

And I hope the Witch from the core set will be released in metal and soon!

She's absolutely divine!

I'm still not as excited as I hoped to be.

Could it be that I've become picky?

 

 

Maybe. I am happy for all this, but I also am going "wow, I have a lot from Bones IV, and my interests are less aligned right now". Don't get me wrong, Bones V has a lot of stuff I'd like. More of it is hitting a note of "that would be useful for a game" than "I am inspired to paint that" though. Except maybe the dragons. I really like high detail painting, and Bones material just isn't the best for that. It has a different purpose, and that's good. But.... I really want to sling cash at some high detail resin figures.

 

So I think what I'm in for, at least initially with B5, is "useful" stuff. I'll add more in the PM later.

Yes I agree.

Althought the new Bones Black has better detail and that makes it more interesting.

oh yes, i would like to get that zombie giant when they split up the core.

 

i also want the gem dragon if it unlocks, the pizza dragon, i'm oddly amused by the dire cabbage, if the rumored dice set shows up i'll get that,  and i want the dire well thingy

I'm not happy with the Dread Wolves, I would have wanted them, but they're missing their eyes.

That's a big turn off for me.

I'll be curious how the Core breaks up. There's enough in there that I'll likely wind up just buying the whole thing like I have in the past. Even the stuff I don't love, I can probably still find a use for.

 

I'm debating the Villagers add-on. I get a second set of villagers in Bones 4, so I think I may actually be hitting saturation for villagers, but the children minis are a nice addition...

I know I'm in for one core. What parts of the core breakdown I'll acquire really depends on what that breakdown is. At the moment no individual mini or grouping leaps out at me. I'll hold off judgement until I get the chance to see what the final breakdown is.

If all of you naysayers raise your pledges by at least $10, I'll put in a good word to the hobby gods on your behalf.

      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.
