Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

ok ok. people, sit down. dont faint. wait for it. 

 

that centaur does seem a bit big for a normal centaur!!!

 

maybe a half demon centaur or monster of legend centaur, but i dont think its supposed to be a special one. 

 

yes, i said it. something was too big than what i expected.

 

hell...is freezing over.

 

regarding the minotaur - its wonderful. my second favourite minotaur sculpt of all time.  I still want a savage minotaur miniature, like the 3rd edition art, but this one is still excellent.

 

Cerberus - like the size, but it seems like it lacks in fur detail.

Whereas I want some civilized minotaurs, that would work more for PCs than for monstrous encounters.

i'd imagine most people who want greek set already have added to their pledge.  So showing new parts of sets wont raise it as much as the part 1 reveal.

 

Showing 3 or 4 upcoming optional goals (with prices) that are awesome, would cause another spike, IMHO.

Maybe he's part Clydesdale.

 

Some of the old draft horses could be pretty sizable (the largest one recorded was listed over 7' at the withers and over 3,000 lbs).  That's a big horse.

Perhaps that centaur is Nessus - who battled Heracles, and whose poisoned blood killed Heracles in turn?

i can agree, but also i am okay with sculpting fur more than i am trying to fix the Nemean lion's legs xD so i can live with bland fur detail as long as the anatomy isn't super off

I am actually beginning to suspect the texture of the Cerberus is not a fur texture at all, so much as a skin texture.

 

Pathfinder, at least, portrays such monsters as flayed, and largely devoid of fur. This could be a riff on that concept.

      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!
