Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

On the other hand, I imagine some people might like to have the Bar but don't really need a bunch more barrels, because things like that are readily available from other manufacturers. An "extra" bar would probably be a relatively easy thing to re-sell on the secondary market.

 

Sound reasoning.

Hmm, I will be thinking about all of this.

I would only need one Bar.

I was thinking of ordering two, keeping one intact, and carving the other into its component pieces to use as modular extensions, or possibly reglueing in a slightly different arrangement.

 

The main thing I need more of in that set is docks, though. I need ALL THE DOCKS.

Another good idea!

For what it's worth, I am also seeing an internal server error when I try to access the pledge manager.

 

It's hard for me to claim that it's really a problem, given that the PM won't really be open for a few weeks, but it makes me sad that I can't play with all the options. :upside:

From Reaper's online shop, SKU 77029!  I think it was among the first Bones minis made, before the first Kickstarter ::):

 

 

 

 

Grump had one of those, dead, on its side, for Kingmaker.

 

The first sign that there was a big bad, I think.

I wish the Christmas docks and piers that Grump uses were still around. When you need docks at all, you need a lot of them.

Otherworld uses flight bases.

 

Not cheap - $52 for twenty of the little pests, on  Paizo.

The problem is that you do need them in large numbers.

 

Bones would have been ideal.

 

I am sometimes tempted to make vampiric owl stirges - the original myths that spawned the Zelazny strige that spawned the D&D stirge. ::):

 

The Auld Grump

Thems the bunnies.

 

Owls, really? :huh: Oh, striga! Owl! Cool! Thanks Wikipedia!

I can log in to the pledge manager (iOS something), but it won’t let me add anymore to the PM. I guess more than 60 items is just too much :rolleyes:

PM is working for me. A lot of the images are still borked, including the Henchmen.

 

I do like how a lot of the core set extras now have a bright green 'extra' on them; so they read 'extra dragons', or what you have.

But I'd like to see pictures; especially of new things and masters. ^^;

I'm just praying that the Reaper docks come somewhere close to matching up with the old Lemax Christmas village dock sets.  I have a tub of them, and it would be really nice if these would match up with them to some extent.  Since it's all rough and hand build it doesn't have to be exact, but I hope it's at least in the ballpark.

According to Twitch, there is a giveaway going now for the top 100 Bones AND top 50 DHL metals figures.

Go to twitch.tv/reapermini and enter #sub in the chat. They DON'T have to be on at the time, the chat will register your entry whether they're streaming or not.

The drawing is this Thursday, Nov. 7 during Reaper Live! and AGAIN on Friday, Nov. 15.

Go Enter!

 

ETA: They're going to give away a set like that EVERY MONTH as long as the sub count stays at or above 1500.

So, have we seen any pics of the Kaiju yet?


Other than this one, no, I don’t think so.

I can't wait to see a measure of scale so I can make an informed decision on this one :ph34r:

      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.

      The KS is starting off with bases, and SG's unlock the terrain:

      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.
