Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

A variety of reasons... 

- reactions

- curiosity if the game is actually worth $80 CAD (or $130, or etc) 

- watching people confront their phobias and utterly fail, but keep going (Markiplier and Five Nights At Freddie's comes to mind - he's rather afraid of animatronics...) 

- we will watch people paint or sculpt on Twitch! 

 

I suspect it's a glittery wolf that's been known for holding its paw over this big purple button labeled "biggest glitter bomb ever - untested, but should coat the entirety of Texas"... (purple text) 

 

 

I'm rather curious as to how much that little ship is going to be, looks about perfect for all sorts of things...  Sure, I want the big ship, but I might want 3-4 of the smaller one... 

The little ships would be perfect for smugglers fleeing from the big ship.

I would personally like some 1/1 scale earwigs and silverfish in Bonesium.

 

At the usual 1"=5' scale, those would be some pretty creepy crawlies.

No! Absolutely not! Keep your horrifying ideas to yourself!! 
 

Bleh! Earwigs! Bleh!

The brine goblins definitely helped push me over the edge for Dark Depths.

 

Any chances some proper gillman adventurers will be in the third part? I've done two versions of my triton cleric as blue humans but by the time things ship he'll be due for a third. ;)

 

Also, late on Spider Chat, but I'd love some jumping spiders! The drow in my home game have them as their default spider motif instead of the black widowy ones.

So do ya'll believe that there will be surprises in Part III of the Greek Odyssey Expansion, or have we seen everything already?

 

My Google search says that, apparently, stirges have origins in Greek mythology.

 

I'm going to be big mad if there aren't any stirges.

One can hope, but be prepared to be "big mad," I guess...

they hinted at something cool (and if i recall correctly, to proper D&D scale) in part 3 of greek.  I'm betting on a Titan. (which i need for the campaign I DM - one of my players normally uses the form of a titan ) :)

Those are usually depicted as weird owls, rather than batsquitos.

I would settle for the weird bat-bird sculpt in Bones Black:

How would you tell the difference between a giant and a titan? They're both big (25' tall, 3' base" humanoids...

Oh dang, if they aren't in the KS I may have to grab the metal versions. Those are some good, good stirge boys.

not familiar with 5e that much but in 2e, 3e, titans base height was taller than even storm giants (and the advanced versions got even larger).  In 2e, they also had a grouping of greater titans which were one step from being gods.  In 3.XE, these could be titans with Divine Ranks and epic powers from epic level handbook, etc.

 

3e srd (online -free) says titans start 25 ft. Storm giants about 21.

 

Essentially, im hoping for something taller than my GF9 Storm Giant :) (the height of mossbeard would rock and make me so happy - or even like an inch or so shorter)

oooo clam and big eel, and those goblins are oddly endearing

Those are goblins? Ok.

I was already mostly in on that but now it's for sure. I like the fishes.

I'm pleased that Reaper continues to offer such an affordable entry-point every couple of years. Bones 5 is a no-brainer for D&D players who don't have very many miniatures,.

This is certainly my situation. I've been a player for decades but only occasionally, and never a mini painter. I've been painting for a month or so, and love it. A collection builder like this is such a welcome opportunity. I'm also buying minis at my FLGS and online, so the kickstarter has made me a consumer in multiple ways.

      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. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
