Recommended Posts

I wasn't really excited till now.

Those fish and eel are excellent and the Dolphins made it into Bones!

Nice waking up to less than $25,000 to goal!  Must have had good pledging overnight.   Fingers crossed we will manage to reach the next unlock today!

 

Meanwhile it's off to forage for coffee...

Y'know, it's kinda weird; I am excited about this KS, and there's a LOT of cool stuff being made, but I just can't bring myself to babysit this one. I check it once, maybe twice a day and that's it. I've skimmed this thread, but by no means have I read every word. It's kinda whatever happens, happens.

I've been following Bones V since its launch. I backed 3 and 4; I nearly own all of 4. 

 

5 has some really great ideas brewing, especially with the Encounter set pieces, however, I find it to be pretty underwhelming so far. The Core set and the Daimyo set don't have a strong attraction from me, the dark depths, greek odyssey and brinewind have potential, but I doubt they'll be completed goals.

 

The extras have nice models, and the ship that was teased was BY FAR the most interesting, at least to me. I doubt we'll see it. Bones 4 is a hard thing to live up to. There were SO MANY good things about it that I understand bringing that kind of fire again may be taxing. 

 

As 5 stands nothing is scratching any itch I have, I felt like 4 had more bang for my buck. Unless some more things stick out, I don't think I'll be a Bones V backer.

I need basic monsters that I can use to run "out-of-the-box" adventures on game night.

 

Every expansion has one or two basic monsters that I can use and a lot of niche minis that I can't use, which will leave me waiting for retail on everything but select pieces from the core set and add ons.

I'm hoping the ship will unlock.

Also there is a smaller boat, somewhere earlier in this thread someone showed it.

 

If you pledge one Dollar you can back and have access to the Pledge Manager.

That way if something shows up you will be able to get it for KS prices.

And else, one dollar isn't much and you can always cancel at the last moment.

I wouldn’t be too pessimistic just yet. Reaper has never not completed an Expansion set, so I’m sure we will see all those filled out before the end. There’s still a lot of unlocking to occur.  Also, given the amount of time and effort Reaper has put into the development and promotion of the pirate ship, I would bet good money (figure of speech, not endorsing betting on the forums) that we will certainly see it before the end.

This is the BONES V thread:

In answer to your post, maybe you might want to wait till they split up the Core Set, usually one can buy parts of that, like the villagers, or the elves I think.

That way you might get what you need?

Yesterday on Reaper’s fireside chat, ReaperJon answered a question about the boat and said it would be revealed next week... so it sounds like we will get a chance to throw money at it soon. I am not die hard about anything in this ks... but have no doubts that all the expansions will be fully realized by the end.

I'm pleasantly surprised by Part II of the Dark Depths Expansion.

The Eel and the Clam, the Dolphins and that Devil Ray are my favorites, combined with the grouper,the seahorse, the sharks and the crocosaurus and dunkleosteus it makes a great set.

I will also use the merfolk and that beholder, not sure about the Ogres, I have little need or desire to paint those, the goblins are nice, in the worst scenario one could chop them up and make fish / crab parts.

 

Now all we need is a little shipwreck,  maybe a large octopus and a sea dragon!

Oh ye of little faith!  I have no doubt we'll round out all expansion and unlock the ships.

 

0.000% doubt.

      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.
