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

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing tell that there may be a translucent version of the ship in the PM. Reaper, any idea when that'll happen? It's keeping me from finalizing my pledge completely...

What I really want is to have a more detailed shot of the Townfolk. Is it just me or can the ladies on the second row can be painted us nuns? I already brought the set, because civilians are fun to paint. Sadly it doesn't have many tradesmen, thought that is covered by the Brinewind Expansion. I wonder if I am the only person excited about the civilians. I literally brought the Player Characters for the civilians inside the set.

 

I am still considering both Henchmen sets but the Shadow Dragon vs Troll Bridge vs Shadows of Ravenhome are making this seem unlikely (or another expansion).

I'm in for all the henchpeople and civilians. I like being able to represent folks that aren't swinging swords with similarly geared minis.

Finally did the pledge manager thing.  I feel like a lame fangirl, but we just hadn't found time to sit down together and sort out what we wanted.  Which was apparently almost $500 with shipping, yikes!

This. :ik_oops:

 

I keep poking MrBoot that we need to do it (because otherwise I'd just pledge for all the things that I want, which would be, um...expensive :lol:). I did lock in a core set ages ago to solidify shipping order, but other than that we need to confer to make sure that the other things we get are useful to him as well as me, since I'm more about the painting and he's more about the gaming. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I added the villagers in Bones 4 along with the ones that came in the Core set. I've got quite a few townsfolk minis now, and there's some other KS out there that have some with more character. I'm on the fence about this set. I'm not sure I need 50+ villagers...

How else are you going to prevent your players from flinging fireballs when the bad guys ambush the town square?

 

In all honesty, I ragged on the Townsfolk add-on pretty hard during the KS campaign.  I do still think too many of them are static... but I might end up throwing them on last-minute anyway.  We'll see.

But that is a perfect size for a hamlet or small town! How unrealistic are you games if the city doesn't have more than 50 civilians?

Yeah, they are pretty static. But they do work as people speaking to each other. Plus the more expensive clothing and cloaks can work for mages and wizard, so you can now make a whole college/university.

The static poses aren't entirely a problem for generic NPCs. Dynamic poses draws more attention, which makes them feel more "important" than some random people. That said, the only thing I really like about them is that there's children and/or small villagers in the group. I'll mull it over. I've cut the Dungeon Dwellers expansion from my planned purchase so...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).

      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.
