Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

The D&D 3.5 artwork that Argent seems heavily inspired by has very large smooth wings. I think that was intentional in the design. His wings shouldn't be heavily detailed in regards to texture. 

well what the more detailed resin kits do is add scratches, sometimes small tears, veins, even rougher patches on the surface.

Has it been stated anywhere that the Core will be Bonesium or Bones Black? The inclusion of the kobolds makes me think Bonesium or a mix.

Core and expansions are Bones Black. They plan on doing as much as possible on Bones Black so only very large or complex items will be in bonesium

Those are also things that could be added with a Xacto knife and some putty. I rather like the big smooth wings; only complaint on them is that it'll be a nuisance to smooth out the plastic injection spots. A large smooth surface is a new type of painting challenge. I just wish that the connecting point on Argent for his neck to body was a better connection. I don't see a good way to make that not look awkward.

How about actually keeping the Kickstarter page updated so people could see what  was unlocked, coming up, and included with what sets! 

 

I don't remember them ever being so causal about keeping everything current on the main Kickstarter page.

I'm thinking of checking out until next week. There's not much new except the hippocampus on stream and the formal existence of a new expansion. Feels like we hit the lull and nothing else will be revealed until tomorrow.... Maybe

I'm glancing at it every couple of hours and so far haven't seen a picture of anything that wasn't already unlocked. Kind of hard to be excited about upcoming stuff when I can't see pics ahead of time.

Thank you guys, I was afraid it was just me feeling this way. I made the comment about the lack on the livestream.

to each their own, of course. it just boils down to that i will not pledge for something that is merely concept art or unfinished, because between Argent and the Frost Giant raiders, they cannot be trusted to actually be something i want

What was wrong with the frost giants?

"Ack!  A knight!"

 

I like the second installment of the Daimyo expansion.  We're still a little short on appropriate human figures but there's a decent assortment of minis for L5R opposition.

Undead samurai are cool. I don't have a use for them really though. I'm more of a standard European-esque fantasy person, and if I want to dip into another culture or aesthetic I'm more likely to go jungle or desert themed.

 

I'm kind of relieved to have two expansions I can comfortably pass on. More money for big dragons (I don't own any but Bones 4 Gauth currently.)

Yay!  At last it seems they're getting themselves and the KS page organized!!!  

 

With the exception of actually adding the Pizza Dragon and Dire Cabbage to the Core Set graphic, it looks like everything is where it's supposed to be, and the correct things are being previewed!

Too small.  The Catoblepas in D&D 3rd edition is Huge.

Large in Pathfinder.

 

I hadn't even noticed it in Pathfinder until this KS.

      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.
