Now I'm sad there's no Dire Hireling.

Wouldn’t a dire hireling just be a punk in a spiky coat? :blink:

Well technically... Yes...

Also yes, so your dire hireling will be a ogre/troll with a great bag straped, a club and a spiky skullcap... And a kitten in a pouch or somesuch...

The only dire thing that we’ll be getting if this thread doesn’t get back on topic is...

(that’s what I like to call a subtle hint)

That was my first thought, yes. ::): (He may be my favorite humanoid mini in all of Bones V.)

 

*EDIT* It's the kitten that makes it. The ogre looks fierce, and grouchy, and there is this kitten, totally taking advantage of him. Like Sweetums from the Muppet Show, he is a much nicer ogre than he appears.

^ That reminds me, has there been a ranking of people’s interests in the Expansion Sets in this thread yet? I’m interested to see which ones are the most and least popular here. 
 

Here’s mine:

 

1. Dungeon Dwellers: I’m new to Reaper and mini-collecting so this is a great opportunity for me to get a big selection of popular and useful figures all at once. 

 

2. Greek Odyssey: Greek mythology is a big interest of mine and these will be super-fun to have even if I never get to use them in a D&D game. 
 

3. Dark Depths: I’ve always wanted to play a heavily sea-faring based game and these would be perfect for that. 
 

4. Brinewind: Similar to above but loses points for having too many skeletons. 
 

5. Fan Favorites: A pretty much 50/50 mix of stuff that could be useful and stuff that I’d never unbag. 
 

6. Daimyo: I want to like this one more but it just doesn’t seem to have enough variety.
 

7. Chronoscope: Cool stuff but I don’t think I’d get any use out if it.

1/Greek Odyssey - Top of the list because of the Cloud Giant, Cyclops, and Hydra.

 

2/Dark Depths - Rated this high because of the Sea Giant. Several of the sea creatures look fun to paint.

 

3/Brinewood - Lots of npc’s to set a scene.

 

4/Fan Favourites - It’s quirky. Almost too Quirky, but I think there’s enough of interest to make it worthwhile.

 

5/Dungeon Dwellers - No big standouts for me. Not a set I need, but some nice sculpts make it tempting.

 

6/Chronoscope - On the fence on this one. Like the trailer and a handful of the minis.

 

7/Daiymo - Just not my thing. Doesn’t capture my imagination.

For me:
1. Dark Depths - will go well with the dragon turtle from Bones 4.
2. Brinewater - will mix well with Dreadmere and ghost pirates from Bones 4. Plus it will mix with Dark Depths.

 

The next three are quite close together

3. Greek Odyssey - large amount of large miniatures and some fun small sculpts.
4. Dungeon Dwellers - a nice selection of nice designs. 
5. Chronoscope- I like 50% of the set, would have preferred for it to be more steampunk or noire. The problem that I had with the chronoscope (bones 4 version included), is that it lacks focus when compared to most other expansions.  

The last two are lacking the oomph of the other sets.

4. Fan Favourites - I like the small miniatures but the large ones don't interest me.
5. Daimyo - I have Rising Sun board game (still unpainted), but it has nice sculpts just ones that I already have a version off.

1:- Greek Odyssey - Just so much good stuff in this one.

 

2:- Dark Depths - Not too keen on all the fish, but I love pretty much everything else (plus the Sea Giant is potentially my favourite mini of the Kickstarter).

 

3:- Fan Favourites - I like a lot of stuff in this one too, but none of the big minis.

 

4:- Dungeon Dwellers - I like a lot of the heroes in this set, but I worry they're not quirky enough to tickle my inner painter.

 

5:- Brinewind - Some nice minis, but overall just too many random pirates for me.

 

6:- Chronoscope and Daimyo - These two are a tie, both have a couple of minis I like, but overall they're just not for me.

Expansions List: 

1. Fan Favourites - I have always wanted a Demegorgon figure, and mephits.  The Landsknect, bug lips and the spikeshell paladin& axolotl warriors were things I didn't know I needed.  but ill hold off pledging for it until I see more sculpts.

2. Greek Odyssey.  really love the golem, the Giant and the smaller sculpts.

 

3. Dark Depths.  Fish are cool to paint but I don't need that many of them.  

4. Brinewind - lots of cool concepts, but with the core V set, and dredmere from last time I'm good for villagers.

5. Chronoscope & Daymio - I am not interested in these themes, although there are some I might want retail. 

6. Dungeon Dwellers.  I have all of these (or variations), but it would be great for a gamer starting to build a collection.

Greek-Yephima, nuff said (and them big monsters...grrroar!)

Dwellers- This and Favorites go mano-a-mano, with the more bang for your buck shtick, gotta love that, plus, some of these sculpts are awe-inspiring to me

Brinewind- Im not that sold in the pirates thing, but they have so much charm combined....

Chrono- Robots and mutants and mad scientists oh my!...but i don't know if I can afford it...

Daimyo- Hmmm... Love some, others, Not so much...

Depths- The giant is cool...otherwise....erm no thanks?

 

Oy, can I drop here the Channel Pit and Ravenhomme? I know they're not full fledged X-Packs, but imho they are a good deal, and those two are my favorites(the King's Crypt comes third)

Favorite expansions for Bones5 (in order)

  • Slot One - toss up between the Greek Odyssey and Dungeon Dwellers. Both are on my order list, but I think Greek Odyssey narrowly edges out Dungeon Dwellers because Yephima is sooo pretty (this is all @Corporea's fault... ::D:). 
  • Slot Two - Dungeon Dwellers or Greek Odyssey. Dungeon Dwellers is brilliantly set up for a starting DM - you can run an entire Tier-1 to Tier-2 adventure series in the "B2 Keep on the Borderlands" vein using just the minis in this set - with the minis in this set and a core set, you can roll well into Tier 3, getting adventurers up into 11-14th level or so. 
  • Slot Three - Fan Favorites! I love it! So many cool, random bits - the FF pack was one of my favorite bits of KS4, and I'm glad it made a repeat appearance in KS5. I'm sure these are a royal pain in the elf for the sculptors and concept artists, and I really appreciate the effort they go through to make that bit of insanity happen. 
  • Slot Four - Brinewind. So much character in these characters. It's pretty much a must-have if you're running any kind of a nautical game - and even if you're not, it's still really cool. I'm not sure I'm getting it (because money), but I'm awfully glad it's there. 
  • Slot Five - toss up between Chronoscope and Dark Depths. There are individual minis in Dark Depths I want more, but Chronoscope, I think, narrowly edges it out in terms of utility (in part because I don't do a lot of nautical adventures, and especially not undersea ones). 
  • Slot Six - Dark Depths or Chronoscope. So, I will almost certainly never run a zombie apocalypse game (at least not a long-term one) of any sort - I am utterly zombied out, at this point. and while I'm not as totally done with Steampunk/victorian as I am zombies... it's not high on my "zomg things I must run". Still, some of the minis are neat, the science fiction/post-apoc section is good, and who doesn't want an Airstream fifth-wheel mini? :rolleyes:
  • Slot Seven - Daimyo - I dunno, this one just never seemed to gel for me. There are individual minis I like, and a couple that need only minimal work to go from "kinda neat" to "really quite keen" - but, overall, it just never went from "kinda cool" to "ZOMG must have nao!".

      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.
