Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I fully intend to ask about separating the cannons out from the ship on today's twitch live stream if I can watch it.  

I've started typing up several other questions to spam them with, too ::D:

Can't watch the stream, do you mind asking about how many other encounter sets they have in the works, if you get a chance?

I will add it to my list.   

Of course, I can ask all the questions I like, doesn't mean they'll notice them in the torrent that is the twitch chat.

If they are going to beat wizkids boat.  It needs playable interior.

I would certainly prefer a playable interior, but at several inches longer and likely 50-100 bucks cheaper at retail*, I think it's already beating the "Falling Star."

 

 

*This is a guess, based on the retail price of Ma'al Drakar. It may be totally wrong. But I'd still expect RSS Dark Maiden to be significantly less expensive than a prepainted, pre-magnetized piece sold under license.

Wizkids announced their unpainted ship last friday or so, so there is direct competition now. It's 100$ cheaper than the painted version.

I would say your guess is wrong.  The ship is going to be more than twice the material of Maal-Drakar.  While a lower price would help.  I dont think its going to be lower,

Ah, this is news to me. In that case, here's hoping the Reaper ship hews close to the same price.

The Barge was a $30 add on, this one is like three times larger?

And prices have gone up. So a $100 would be expected.

Not much to talk about at the moment. We're definitely in that slowdown period.

 

I'm hoping the next reveal is part 2 of the Greek Expansion to try to kickstart (heh) the pledges.

That makes sense, both for starting and stopping.

 

But I did find them really inspirational. I only started hanging out on this forum at all because the challenges were such a compelling concept. It also gave me a great excuse to paint DDS; not only did I have much more fun doing it with the constraints than I would have otherwise, it actually got done instead of sitting half-finished for years. It also got me in the habit of painting for a good long time, which meant that much more than just the challenge piece got finished.

 

So, not arguing with anything you said, but I really hope you don't think they were a waste. At the cost of a few pixels, you got me doing more and better work, and enjoying it much more, and I doubt I'm alone in that.

 

I'm glad it had a positive effect all around, it's better to paint than not to paint!

Same.  I know we've seen at least 3 Human Heroes and a Minotaur...I wonder what else there will be.  I'm imagining the Cloud Giant will also be an add-on during that period, sort of like the big dinosaurs and Lost Valley during Bones 4.

@TaleSpinner please don't take this the wrong way, because your creation is truly glorious. But. My brain is finding her somewhat terrifying and I don't think I could handle having her on my painting desk.

 

.... I just showed it to MrBoot and he wants you to know that he wants to get two. 

 

:zombie::zombie::zombie:

 

I told him I'm not painting them. :upside:

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D 

 

Time to put your boot down on this one. Even if he buys them and you never paint them, it's only a matter of time before you accidentally spot one on a shelf or table when you least expect it and nobody wants that.

      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!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      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!
