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)

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
