Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Or it could be that as an avid reaper fan, they've already made everything you yearned for?

 

Aside from a few things, this might be true.

Still going to get the spider!

 

I hope the smaller boat that was hinted at makes an appearance soon, that looked interesting!

Here is the updated graphs for Bones 5 vs the Bones 2-4. Bones 2,3 were stretched to equalize the days.

 

Bones 5 projection in Yellow is if Bones 5 gets the same money as  Bones 4 for the remainder of campaign. The %Projection (Green) is based on my belief that we will grow more than Bones 4 due to the larger number of backers. I used the the % of total (for Bones 4) for each of the remaining days extrapolated for Bones 5.

Thanks for posting this.  I think the % projection makes more sense as well, which would put the total well over $4M.  No reason to expect that B5 will start tracking like B4 if it’s been higher than B4 up until now.

 

Series 7 is Bones 1?  Also, is Bones 2 not plotted?  It’s in the legend, but i don’t see it on the chart.

I agree, I'm a bit saturated on the humongous mini front.

The ship might be the exception, but I don't need huge monsters now.

I like some vehicles and boats and terrain stuff though.

 

 

we're the reverse. We feel like we have enough adventurers, NPCs, bad guys, and generic monster villains to be set. 

So now i'm just after stuff to paint, which is the humongous minis and the monsters haha

Just haven't added Bones 1 yet. But 1 was definitely a different animal to the others

 

Of course - wasn’t thinking.  B1 would look totally different.  So is B2 the dark blue/series 7?

Oh I like the big monsters, just nothing as big as Maáldrakar anymore ( except the ship) I do hope the Undead Giant of the Core Set will become an add on like they did with Gauth last time.

I like that Zombie Giant, he will be fun to paint with those vultures and that cartwheel.

 

And I hope the Witch from the core set will be released in metal and soon!

She's absolutely divine!

I'm still not as excited as I hoped to be.

Could it be that I've become picky?

 

 

Maybe. I am happy for all this, but I also am going "wow, I have a lot from Bones IV, and my interests are less aligned right now". Don't get me wrong, Bones V has a lot of stuff I'd like. More of it is hitting a note of "that would be useful for a game" than "I am inspired to paint that" though. Except maybe the dragons. I really like high detail painting, and Bones material just isn't the best for that. It has a different purpose, and that's good. But.... I really want to sling cash at some high detail resin figures.

 

So I think what I'm in for, at least initially with B5, is "useful" stuff. I'll add more in the PM later.

Yes I agree.

Althought the new Bones Black has better detail and that makes it more interesting.

oh yes, i would like to get that zombie giant when they split up the core.

 

i also want the gem dragon if it unlocks, the pizza dragon, i'm oddly amused by the dire cabbage, if the rumored dice set shows up i'll get that,  and i want the dire well thingy

I'm not happy with the Dread Wolves, I would have wanted them, but they're missing their eyes.

That's a big turn off for me.

I'll be curious how the Core breaks up. There's enough in there that I'll likely wind up just buying the whole thing like I have in the past. Even the stuff I don't love, I can probably still find a use for.

 

I'm debating the Villagers add-on. I get a second set of villagers in Bones 4, so I think I may actually be hitting saturation for villagers, but the children minis are a nice addition...

I know I'm in for one core. What parts of the core breakdown I'll acquire really depends on what that breakdown is. At the moment no individual mini or grouping leaps out at me. I'll hold off judgement until I get the chance to see what the final breakdown is.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.
       
       

       
       

       
      Stretch goal unlocked:  backers now get the sexy dice! :)

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
