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

Recommended Posts

I've largely stopped buying 32mm minis that are not specific to the pathfinder campaign I'm running, so any content for Bones 6 other than dragons would really have to wow me

I support the bones kickstarters as much because its a way for me to support a favored vendor and company I wish that more companies would emulate.  The bones themselves are inexpensive enough that I can afford to give away even some large ones if I think it will bring some people into the hobby.  So if bones 6 comes out I will probably do the same I did with 5:  pick up the big pieces I really like and get the core set for the deal that will mainly become giveaways and quick tabletop PCs

Maybe when they do a Bones 6, they’ll do an add on which would include the previous Sophie’s re-done for Bones Black, including the biker one and then they could also throw in a pirate Sophie bust. That’d be a very popular add-on, I imagine. 

I'd get one.

I'm lucky/cursed that Reaper Ron seems to have almost exactly the same taste in minis as me. I'm pretty much done on this kickstarter and it's easier to list the stuff that I'm NOT getting :wacko: It's not good when you can think of a good in game use/paint scheme for every flipping unlock in the campaign! :lol:

I wish they would re-do the Bones 3 librarian sophie.. it didnt translate well into regular bones, and probably should be scaled up some

Yeah, I want a better version of her too.

 

As for Bones 6... well, that's a different topic.

 

Because I'm in such a dragon mood, I pulled out the Bones Temple Dragon. Such a lovely sculpt. Just makes me want the new dragons from Bones 5 even more!

I’m a little bummed: I thought the dragons were going to be gargantuan sized. But it looks like according to the descriptions on a couple of them they are on 3” bases, which would classify them as huge. Ah well, I got one of each and they still look great!

I skipped the core and tried to go light on bones 4. 

115 miniatures  (not to mention the boat) later ... I don't think my collection counts as very  light. 

with only 16 painted so far, and a few sold, traded , or given away. 

 

Spent a lot more on bones 5,  and im pretty sure ill take up the challenge of painting the entire core again. 

I have no idea what I would want from B6.

You can stick them on 4" bases and they would look right (they stick out a lot of the 3")
I will

Ron just announced in the Bones 5 Live twitch stream that the Bones 5 Pledge Manager will now close on December 1st, 2020.

BUT, help them out and close out your pledges early, so they can plan production amounts semi-correctly.

They were showing off a lot of the expansions in total.  These should all be resin masters in the pictures.

They showed off a picture of the Dark Depths expansion (it is missing the 2nd and 3rd shark fins, and possibly one other mini).

Note the demonic lasher is just dry-fit together, not glued, so don't fret over any gaps you may see here.

The bases are 3", but the dragons are vastly oversized for that 3" base.  They are easily Gargantuan compared to previous offerings by other companies.  I posed a photoshop comparison with the Huge Red Dragon figure from the Wrath of Ashardalon game a month or two ago.  Trust me, the dragons are bigger than Huge.

 

Here, I hunted down the pic again.  Both of these Red Dragons are on 3" bases, FYI.

And now they showed off Chronoscope.

Seems this pic is missing the tentacle Cthulhu monster that's part of the expansion.  Ah, yes, Ron just said the Shoggoth figure is missing from the picture.  These pics are generally the full sets, but there are a few missing things here and there that weren't finished/assembled.

Oh that’s fantastic! I have Ashardalon so that really helps put them in perspective. Now I’m excited again, since I have a medium, large, and huge of every chromatic and metallic dragon but am lacking the gargantuan sizes!

Urrrrr, I’m really tempted to get a second fan favorites so that I can do two demonic lashers and give one to my brother as a surprise.

That earth Scion really has a Wayne Reynolds ‘feel’ to it. 
 

I’m probably gonna go and get the Deep Dwellers and the scions I skipped. :ph34r:

      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.
