Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

If you have time, another question for you, How tough would it be to make a saddle for putting on various minis with the flexibility of Bonesium?

Also, we need a Dire Monitor Lizard! Or just call it a Shotalashu from Pathfinder.

Less than 13k to go this time.

Ok so 130mm base or 5 inch base is shown there.  Looks like it might need a 150mm because its really overhanging.

I absolutely plan to use a 150mm base (Colossal in D&D 3.5; there is no 5" base size in D&D... It jumps from 4" to 6")

You should be able to make some really nice scenery for it then with that size base.

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...

My cat has gone after my B4 Roc several times. Finally had to put it where she can't get to it.

Only problem is finding someone who actually sells a 150mm base... Reaper doesn't. I haven't looked overly hard elsewhere, though. 

I would check Hobby Lobby for a thin wood disc or get a piece of sheet styrene and just cut one out of that. Okay, weird idea here, Maxwell House Coffee comes in a squared plastic container now. The lid is a nice thick piece of plastic that should cut fairly easy and is big enough.

I take it that you don't find the 74064 160mm base close enough to 6"?

How was it?

 

Funny. My wife & I just got back from it. The Madison character is a very funny addition.

They posted an interview with Bobby Jackson and Julie Guthrie to YouTube. At at the 6:30 mark Bobby makes a comment about having Jason and some argonauts in the Greek Odyssey expansion, to which Ron alludes to it being a part of the expansion. They also reference having a Golden Fleece.

As someone who moved out to 5 acres in the countryside 3 1/2 years ago and has been working on turning it into a farm ever since, let me warn you that it's a *lot* more work than it looks like. Ergo, you will have a great deal less time for minis/models/gaming.

Not planning on "farming", although there will be wild horses coming through on a fairly regular basis.

The plan is to leave as much as possible in natural scrub and sagebrush.

Most of the "weeding" will be done with a grading tractor.

After the initial improvements are in there won't be a whole lot of yard work to do as the area is arid and gets enough snow every year to keep most of the more annoying kinds of weeds in check.  We will basically be in the rain shadow of the Sierra Nevada range so there isn't much surface water available to encourage weed growth.  The snow is on the dry side so it doesn't contribute much to the surface water.  There is good water at circa 200 to 240 feet throughout the area and our well driller is confident they will hit the good gravels at between 200 and 220 feet on our patch of ground.

The "Golden Fleece" is likely a euphemism for this Kickstarter.

I'm hearing a lot of wallets crying out in agony.

Glad you've been getting some use out of them.  I've been using Gloss Mod Podge and a tooth pick to make the window panes.  I've also found that painting the resulting "glass" with Tamiya clears makes a pretty good looking stained glass effect. 
 

that sounds like Winterset. 

I got really discouraged about Bones 5 yesterday, and dropped my pledge down to a minimum.   The only reason I'm still in right now is the siege engines, and maybe the ship. I'm getting frustrated with Reaper's scattershot approach to Chronoscope - there are so many great ideas in that line that would be great for tabletop skirmish games, except for the fact that there is only one sculpt. One of the things that makes the Bones line great in fantasy is the inexpensive horde creatures like kobolds and goblins - but other than the NOVA Corp and IMEF, Reaper doesn't seem willing to do that for Chronoscope. 

We've been there!

Stayed at the Covered Bridges Inn for our visit to Marion Morrison's childhood home.

"Who's Marion Morrison?" most people are asking.

You will be familiar with his screen name, John Wayne.

The museum is quite interesting if you are a film buff.

      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.
