Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I found pictures of 10 greek creatures from Reapercon .

Assuming that that one human with a scroll is wearing a toga. 

 

Titian 

Columns (2)

Harpies (3)

hoplite  (+) 

Iron Golem

Senator

 

I can't imagine that the set will come with only 1 hoplite/ warrior. 

it may come down to how much I want the titian and how big he is.  buying him retail would be at least 1/3 of the set price 

the Iron Golem is the most impressive after the titan - even if I get the set, I would pick up a second from retail

I'm looking forward to the Bronze Golem, because they look so epic and tons of detail to work with... And am rather curious as to what else will be coming...

I've got to have the golem, the hydra, cyclops, the harpies... I'm definitely in for this set. The titan I hope is an add on piece that I can skip.

I have been wondering about that as well. I want that Bronze/Golem/Talos thing they previewed at Rcon. 

 

I prefer Satyrs. At least I have always spelled it that way. 

 

I liked the look of that centaur. According to C.S. Lewis, the non-horse portion of the centaur should be of a size and bulk rather like a small giant. In other words: the girth  of the equine rib cage and the hominid rib cage should about equal. 

 

And it looks like somebody has read LW& W. 

 

Your wish is my one-off conversion...

...that I made years ago. (I used him as a spare Chaos Knight for Warhammer.)

DId….did you destroy a chaos knight from HERO QUEST?!....How DARE YOU!

I stand corrected: the hype is back. I don't know if it will be enough, I don't know if it's just an irrational feeling... but this new map feels more exciting than the previous ones. 

I guess, yes, with the armory and three siege weapons there is a good chance they uncover a castle or some kind of a fortress eventually (and that could be amazing) and... finally the greek expansion is close and the hydra looks soooo good. Much better than the one we already have. 

 

The new dragon is a must too, I'll get all five of them - if, hopefully, red and white get unlocked too -. That massive neck and nasal horn is exactly what a blue dragon should look!

About that, what's the criteria for "Fan favourites"? I mean, it's themes that worked well sales-wise, stuff that people frecuently request....?

Well in bones 4 it was just a bunch of random stuff that people had been requesting.

Looks more like the Warhammer 5E monopose Chaos Warriors. I just got 2 in a trade.

On the Kickstarter note, I am really looking forward to the Greek expansion.  The Cyclops, Bronze Golem, Minotaur, Cyclops, and Hydra are all killer designs.

I love the kids @Rainbow Sculptor has made. I may get an extra set of each if they become available separately.

 

one thing I wish they would do is a child version of sir forscale, Sophie, and the iconic/pizza dungeon characters that were chibi in bones 4. Maybe even a child mr. Bones. I know not everyone loves or needs the children but I think they are my favorites in bones v. 

I like these as well and will likely get an extra set or two. I have only seen pics of three renders here. Are there pics of the rest somewhere?

No he didn't. That was a regular WFB Chaos Warrior. The one from Heroquest is this guy:

Similar, but not the same. (Not my picture; found it on the 'net)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I'm liking A LOT of stuff in this Kickstarter, my plans to cherry-pick are in jeopardy.

I have this mini, but mine has two axes. Maybe heroquest re-popped it?

I thought mine was GW or partha. He's on a slotta base. (gonna have to find him)

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
