It would never work; cats would end up just pushing everything on the deck, as well as all the cannon, off the sides of the ship anyway, just to watch them fall.    :lol:

 

This works better when the cat is on top. When the cat is down below, ... well if you're at ReaperCon you can ask my wife about "Kitty want to play with a hammer?" ::D:

And we certainly don't need that!

(The wailing, I'd be all over some Vikings!)

 

As long as they have spears, round shields, and spangenhelms (or similar) without any stupid horns. Some axes and sword would also be fine.

Use a clear one with the Blue Tamiya Clear over the top of it?

 

For ice, some blue would probably be useful, but I'd recommend making quite a bit of the surface opaque white as well, and possibly adding a bit of snow flock. The opaque will make the figure pop on the table much better than just clear blue. (Tamiya, Badger Minitaire Ghost Tints, or Reaper Clear Blue, but for that last you'll want to mix the blue paint about 1:8 or so with Gloss Sealer).

 

Also, at least for the clear bits, gloss generally works best. Matte will look frosted (unless frosted is what you're trying for, of course.

Maybe we need a Skeletal Expansion of commonly seen animals for Bones VI

Discworld aside*, having just run an encounter with a skeletal ox and three skeletal pigs, I would appreciate more skeletal livestock.

 

*Not that I'm upset about anything Discworld-related.

[MOD]

Reminder thread is for Bones 5 Kickstarter. Other topics have other threads.

Reaper Live on Twitch should be discussed in the video subforum.

[/MOD]

Can we get someone to resume starting threads per episode? General users are not allowed to start threads in that forum.

My remarks on the Discworld scenario  with skelies led me to immediately conclude this is an under-served area in the Reaper Bones Line.

I suggested several names for the Large Ship Model during the Kickstarter.

Since then I've been doing some research on Historical Pirate Ship Names and here is the beginnings of my list, attributable to the Large Magazine Format book;  All About History Book of Pirates, fourth edition. Copyright 2019 Future Publishing Limited

-

Adventure Galley - William Kidd 1695-98 Note: This ship had both Sails and Oars making it a great threat in calm weather.

.

Fancy - Henry Every 1694-98

.

Whydah - Samuel Bellamy 1716-17

.

Royal Fortune - Bartholomew Roberts {AKA Black Bart} 1719-21  Note: Generally acknowledged as the most successful pirate of the Golden Age of Piracy.

.

Bersheba - Henry Jennings 1716

.

Charles - John Halsey 1707

.

Amity - Thomas Tew 1693

.

Just a start.  The Tentacles will be adding more.

The USS Essex was a 32 gun sailing frigate with quite a history!

 

I still like Sophia Noir

Of the historical ship names I've come across so far, when combined with Sophie I lean towards

Sophie's Fortune

It has a nice ring and it makes reference to how our collective wallets have been lightened in the effort to bring this ship to actuality.

HMS Cowbell, because it should also have a ding-hy.

How about RMSS* Cowbell for the Pinance?

      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.
