Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

New official photo of the Treasure Golem:

 

Interesting that they're anticipating that many backers!

 

Also, just noticed we are less than $20,000 to the next goal now...

Guardians of the Galaxy has high tech space vehicles with a CASSETTE DECK!

I always presumed that was because he was abducted from early 80s Earth with his Walkman and the one tape. 

Plus wouldn't Guardians of the Galaxy be more of an alternate near future, rather than just sci-fi? 

For the Gem Dragon, I got the impression their idea was that each core set gets a random color, but that they'll rethink that based on us backers.  The twitch chat was pretty clear we wanted clear, but we may have to keep the pressure on them between now and fulfillment to nail them down on that.

I'll be honest, I'm just not into the translucent figures. I get it for some, and it is nice for tabletop ethereal stuff when I'm lazy.... but I don't really enjoy painting them. Yeah, I can prime over it and they'll be opaque, but there is something about them that automatically makes me go "meh" in general. A good figure is still a good figure, but if I had a vote on opaque vs transparent, I'd say opaque every time.

 

Whereas I'm somewhat the opposite - I'd almost rather all miniatures be translucent, so that you can have ghost/invisible versions of them, or opaque versions, or both. I really liked Bones 3's invisible adventurer minis, and made it a point to get 2 versions of each so that I have an opaque and invisible version of each character. I'd love to have even more variety for that. Packaging for invisible minis is a bit harder to work out, though, so that's a definite issue.

Of course, none of the official Reaperpeeps at that moment were Ron, so who knows.

 

I find it interesting that Justin was suggesting that they could do random colors (pledge for one, don't know what would come in your box), then people could trade them. He made it sound like Reaper was cool with this... Which leads me to wonder, to what extent is Reaper rethinking trading policy for this forum?

 

(The answer, I'm fairly sure, is that they're not thinking about this forum at all, when it comes to their social media plans...)

 

Regardless, I'm still pretty against random colors. Clear or solid, color if it's appropriate, but please don't make us guess!

I'm definitely against random colors. I'd much rather have clear translucent, so that I can colour it as I see fit. Winding up with a random coloured one would be kind of annoying.

No offense to Cadirith, but the new spider looks much better overall.

Looking at that spider, I bet some enterprising Goblins could construct a mighty substantial superstructure and/or howdah on the back of it, complete with all manner of nasty weaponage...::D:

 

Something with two levels even; one on the front and one up on the back with a tiny ladder connecting them...

 

Could probably pile a dozen goblins on it too...

There's a bunch of kobolds to crew such a howda in the Core already ;)

Oh, that's right!

 

 

Just had the thought that it would make a great mount for a Dark Elf knight as well.  Might have to do some surgery with the bottom half of one of the mounted figures from Bones 4 and the top half of one of the Dark Elves from the Core...

Now I see it better, it really really really looks very similar to the Aracknarok from GW; in size, pose, and style

Only I'm sure it costs about 1/5th the price.

 

It's a lovely model, but it is way overpriced. I had great fun painting one up as a Leng Spider, but one of our cats took exception to it and stomped 3 of it's legs off before we could haul her away from it. Thankfully, I hadn't attached the howdah at that point so she didn't hurt herself. 

 

I'm guessing that the kitteh racial memory will be triggered by that new spider too, so I'll have to invest in some sturdy storage boxes nearer the time.

Wow. Kitty going beast mode on a spider mini? Never seen that before.

I did have a cat start freaking out at my T'Raukzul mini at one point, but she didn't attack it. Just kept looking at it and watching it for a while...

Maybe.  It's an interesting way to write it.  Either they are going to do like you say, and do a variety each in its own color.  But I doubt they will get involved with folks picking a color; so you'll wind up with a random one?.

This is what they alluded to in yesterday's ... Bones 5 Live? (Maybe Reaper Live.)  Different colors of translucent, and it would be random which one came in your core set.

 

Really hope they do a clear as well as other colors, assuming they go that route, as there is a clear gem dragon in D&D.

Did he state what size that base was?  I'm assuming 130 mm?

No, not in the post I saw at least.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      OMG!  Jason Weibe helped create the new Dwarven line being released on Kickstarter by Tomb Guardians!  These minis look so cool and they are cheap!  I haven't seen anyone post about this yet but here is the link.  It starts tomorrow morning.  They also said Bobby Jackson and Gene Van Horne created there monsters in the set.  Cant wait.   I purchased there Amazons and they were fantastic!  I posted some pics.  Im assuming the Fire Demon and add ons are in Resin.
