Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I wonder about those jerks who pledge and drop by the thousands, can't Reaper see who they are?

Isn't it possible to exclude them/kick them out

I saw mention in the KS comments that they can mute or ban people altogether. Apparently this happened in Bones 2; Reaper Bryan slew the trolls... Thus we got troll slayer Sophie. 

 

Not sure if Reaper can see exactly who is pumping, then deflating their pledges.  It's possible, & may have been involved in the aforementioned troll slaying. 

 

In either case, it was noted that the trolling & pledge pumping are not anywhere near as bad as it was in Bones 2 or 3, apparently.

Did I read mention of an officially-sanctioned trading thread?

 

 

There’s nowhere on the forum where outright trading is allowed, but over on the Miniatures Exchanges and Contest sub forum , there is often a Box of Goodwill (BOGW) started that let’s you sign up to be part of a round robin style  pot luck trade box.  You take out miniatures you want, and put in an equal amount of stuff you don’t want and send it along to the next recipient in the chain.   It’s a lot of fun.

Shifted from Daimyo to Brinewood Expansion for now.

 

I liked the style at first but I think Brinewood  is going to blow it away. Guessing wagon in part 2 and small boat in 3.

I have many undead Samurai and Oni already and I don't like half of the set.

Brinewood might turn out to be cool and combined with the dark depths it will be very useful for my Lost World Project.

Let is also be said that the BOGW is almost always full of miniatures from the Bones Kickstarters, as well, ranging from most recent to Bones 1 as of this year.  Heck, someone even tossed in a Chief Mumlak so it's not always just 'random Kobolds you already got doubles of"

Or execute them?

"Me Grimlock say 'Execute them!'"

 

Also, I wasn't planning on getting two dwarf sets, but doubling up on the zombies and terrain is really tempting...

No female dwarves? Awwwwww......... (wasn't actually expecting any, but I do love me some female dwarves)

Well, you know, the non-PC population is less than one quarter female <_<

Reaper made a comment in the KS comments that we may get a female dwarf elsewhere in the campaign.

Why just one? 
 

Seriously, I love this encounter set. I loves me some dwarves. But it’d be great to see more females. The twin to that statue could have been a female dwarf holding an axe, then I’d have a great statue of Haela Brightaxe. 
 

Whatever.

A couple of people have been requesting stirges in the comments, so we could see them in this KS or as a future release. Reaper has the sculpts in metal, at 2 for 4.99, so they may think that is enough. Me, I want a whole Blood Bank worth of Stirges, a dozen or more, and in metal that would hit about 30$.  A bit much for a flock of low level monsters.

People have been calling for stirges since Bones became a thing. I'm reading certain people were calling for stirges when the Legendary Encounters prepainted line was a thing.

 

I suspect (IANAE, this is pure WAG speculation on my part) the reason they never made stirges in Bones is that they are very small. The original Bones familiars were... Not great. Things that small, especially with spindly probosces, seem difficult for Bonesium to handle well.

 

Which is to say: we want stirges in Bones Black!

I thought it was funny how everyone else called it the same thing.

Just @Glitterwolf showing off his leadership.

      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.
