Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread ((RPM CLOSES December 1st))

Recommended Posts

Wait, a dire eel?   Intriguing. 

 

And of course the kind of looks like a Doom eye thingy with crab arms reveals itself.  Nice. 

 

Wonder if it'll be a water dragon, or dragon-shark in part 3...

Feeling very "meh" about the Dark Depths unlock.   May pick up the merfolk at some point.  Killer clam? Last I knew clams don't often produce giant pearls.

Unfortunately, I'm kind of underwhelmed by Bones V. I tend to dislike extremely large figures and would prefer to make my own terrain so there's not a whole lot I want so far.

 

Yeah, here too.  In for the spider temple set though.  Two if DH wants one.  The bridge and gate don't interest me much.

I'm a first time backer.  I only discovered this hobby after the bones IV kickstarter was done the pledge manager closed.  I guess the more often you back and the larger your collection the more picky one can be.  It only makes sense, if you have a ton of one thing from previous kickstarters than having more of them isn't ideal, especially if you are happy with the amount you have.

 

As for me, I'm super happy with what's on offer for Bones V since I kind of need a bit of everything anyway.    I'm super stoked about the Thing in the Well.  

 

So far I'm in on the core set, the Dungeon Dwellers expansion, the paints, and the Dragon Bust.  I'm still eyeballing the Greek expansion but we'll have to see about that once the 3rd tier unlocks.

 

Glad you're having fun because people like you are fueling this extravaganza.  I went in pretty big on #1 and #4, smaller n #2 and #3,  and don't need a lot of random, general use figures. Never mind that I have most of it in metal already.

If I were a fantasy player I would be into this much more heavily. I am waiting for scifi and Chronoscope, so I just pledged a smaller amount so far.

 

I want to spend money on pulp adventurers, starship crew, supernatural investigators, steampunk characters, space colonists,  cyberpunk gangsters,  and zombie hunters.  C'mon Reaper, give me an excuse to throw my money at you! 

 

Right now I'm in for the catfolk, the Yokai, the spider temple, and the Greek exp.  $85-90?

In one of the YouTube videos last week, Jason Weibe (IIRC) dropped a mention of a sea serpent when he wasn't supposed to.  I bet it's in part 3.

Maybe killer clams do. Maybe fantasy clams do. Who knows, seems like a very minor nitpick though . Clams are often show with pearls. 

 

Maybe this carnivorous fantasy species makes them to lure in prey like foolish treasure seeking divers. is amazing what made up species can explain away

 Considering that the largest creatures tend to be at the greatest depths, it may also be a glowing lure of some sort.

Very true, use it to draw something in range of the snapping shell in that deep abyssal darkness

 

And then the epic fight of kraken trying to get his tentacles out of a killer clam

And I'd like a nice, big mantis.

I would personally like some 1/1 scale earwigs and silverfish in Bonesium.

 

At the usual 1"=5' scale, those would be some pretty creepy crawlies.

Yep. I think my dad dragged us kids to see this many decades ago. Even if I don't have a gaming use for it I might have to see if I can make as diorama with some bored kids looking at it.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
