Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

There are so many awesome things in this kickstarter obviously, but I'm really happy to see the Dragon bust.  I have wanted that for teaching dragon details class since 2017.  I will be maxing that order.

Since you sculpted the Catoblepas, I'm curious how you pronounce it.  Did you get any information about it other than its appearance?

 

I would say it as Cah-tow-blee-pahs.

Regarding Dungeon Dwellers:
There is no figure numbered 321
I really wish they’d remove the cross from number 333. Most fantasy realms use different deities.
Is 346 a barbarian or a giant?

Tough to run a multi-level-spanning game in a two hour slot, but I'd give it a shot! Maybe just run one or two encounters per level, really power through a series of episodes...*ponder ponder percolate*

 

 

@TaleSpinner, I'm sad even you will have to wait so long for your own sculpts, but I'm not surprised. Gotta say, though, you and @Rainbow Sculptor are knocking it out of the park! That catoblepas fills a long-empty niche (with STYLE! That face is ahhhhhhhsome!), and the child adventurers are really great. There's a new after-school organization starting up nearby, and I'm thinking about offering to run a weekly kid's game for them. These would be awesome for that!

 

Thank you.  Wish I could take credit, but Ron came to me about it and gave me awesome Izzy art to work from.  Of course I jumped at the chance, loving the old school monsters as I do.  I really liked Izzy's fresh take.  The skin effects were mine, being a bit hippo and a bit Indian rhino, and a bit fantasy.  This was the fist time I got real, finished Izzy art to work from and it was fantastic! (The Chaos Toads were 5 min sketches she did for me on a piece of scrap paper, which were awesome, but she only had 15 min to spare on them so I had to fill in a lot more of the gaps.)

 This.  It was originally coined by Pliny the Elder in ancient Rome.  I honestly don't know how he would have pronounced it.

I'm gonna have to bug Izzy next year & see the original. Love her take on critters & such.

I have to wonder how many backers are stores who don't want to wait for retail?  There sure seemed to be quite a few of them flipping sets on EBay after B4 ended...

He was Roman so someone that took Latin might be able to help.

I suspect the original would have been more like Kah-tah-bleh-pahs, since it comes from "καταβλέπω, (katablépō)". But by the time we reach later Gygaxian, it's unclear what the preferred pronunciation would have been. :B):

Just posted a link on reddit.  Hopefully that helps pull in some more backers so we get a bunch more unlocks tonight!

 

This is fun!

 

Oh, and just cracked $1.05M so the Yokai option is now unlocked.

 

 

Nevermind - of course someone had already posted it on reddit earlier when the KS launched.  I was surprised it wasn’t still a “hot” post in r/minipainting.

 

This is still fun though!  :rolleyes:

Can I surmise that your version might be painted a bit chaotically?

Well, ZBrush just froze, I guess it must be telling me to take a break and exercise.

 

I had to kill my CAD software at work twice last week in one day. Something about trying to regenerate 13,465 models that it was also trying to download from the server first. Homie don't play that.

 

CTRL-ALT-DEL for that sweet, sweet kill task click.

 

Sometimes, it's just so satisfying.

The one near me sells (sold) stuff  retail at approximately the same amount Reaper sold extra stock. I'm sad about not seeing any more stuff until tomorrow.  Someone new to the hobby can stock up fast, but I'm not sure yet whether I will add more. Dungeon dwellers I like a few, but there's a lot I don't want or need. But it's pretty close to being worthwhile for the stuff I for sure want. Lots more to see.

Thank you.  I hate it when I try to sound intellectual and then screw up an important fact. :blush:  I appreciate the correction. ::):

      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.
