Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Some people could be like me, though, and be on the edge of buying an extra core set.  There's minis I want doubles of.  I know they usually split the core set later down the line but I'm thinking 2 cores might be worth it.

I'm already pledged for 2 cores, just because there are enough larger groups that I am going to want to field as wargaming units, plus I want seconds  (or more) of some of the individual ones.

Same here.  It's always nice to have a decent sized squad of things such as the Dark Elves, etc.  Or even two separate groupings in case of conflict within the race.

 

Yeah, exactly.  I've been painting drow for bregan d'aerthe in Dragon Heist that are more colorful, and I plan on doing another with a different style for the drow faction in Skullport.

 

On a sidenote, a drow gunslinger would be awesome.  I've been using Elthen Bluesteel for now.

That's exactly why I'm planning to get a (partial) second core set.  An extra set of Grave Kings, more Elf Ranger dudes to paint up as guards of an Elven forest.  There are absolutely uses for a second set of a lot of that stuff.

 

I really hope the Dragon Wolf gets broken out as a single add-on at the end.  I want at least 5 of them (one for each chromatic dragon).

Now we've gone beyond models and renders into concept art?

They look like the ones from the dark reach xpack, which I love.  The only think I dislike about them is that they all have the same hair style.  I kinda hope there's a part 2 for this kickstarter, I can always use more dark elves.

 

It's concept art, so it can change a lot before the end.  Personally I don't need any more elves, but whatever drives the pledges....

They asked for a core add on, they got one. They can now pony up the cash and shut their pie holes.

 

Dang straight!

Cool - I love the dark elves from B4.  Just got a couple doubles of the basic ones and elites.  I’m very pleased to see some more added to B5core.

 

I see Mr Ziploc isn’t spewing anything in the KS comments just now.  He must be frustrated that he can’t complain they’re not adding anything to the core.

A meta note: we are also ahead on comments in the enthusiasm thread. We didn't hit 234 pages until 14 days in on Bones 4. ::D:

In my case, I would know the trap had been sprung when I get home and the hut is already on Megan's side of the table.... (We.... may need to get two....)

 

The Auld Grump - it's already happened with the Bones III Sophie.... I could have sworn the figure just plain hadn't been shipped, but there she was, cleaned, primed, and partially painted....

 

You better get a third, Megan has plans for the second one as well.:lol: (End Quote) Original poster : Pezler the Polychromatic

No kidding!  I’ve been following along since the pre-launch thread and this things zooms by sometimes!

 

Is it greater enthusiasm/forumite, or increased noob volume driving up the numbers?

Both, the forums have seen a lot of growth the last couple years and those folks have been looking forward to this. Also, the growth of other media outlets is getting the word out to a lot of new folks.

      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!
