Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I don’t know that bones don’t lend themselves to less detail. I’ve gotten some pretty nice results from my bones minis. Not that I’ve painted that many of them <_<

With the new Bones Black they are better than ever.

And even the Grey Bones is more detailed than the white Bones, look at Bones IV.

I'm already at $300, and probably can't go much higher at this time. Going to be adding more in the PM, I'm certain, but I don't have much funds in the bank account at the moment, sadly.

In my experience the early bones did lend themselves to less detail. Several of the models I painted for my NPC thread I'd painted previously in metal. There was a marked difference between the two materials that has nothing to do with the transparency of the material, the softer detail remained after priming, painting, and playing.

 

Later bones have been better, partially because they're no longer copying old metal sculpts. They're getting into new and unique sculpts that can take full advantage of the material's strengths and weaknesses. Fewer tiny details that look good in metal but fade out into bleh in bones. 

 

I expect if I hadn't painted the exact same minis in metal beforehand I wouldn't have noticed.

Absolutely. I've pledged on Bones I, and after receiving the models I was a bit disappointed on the overall quality; It lacked detail, it was all bent, and... the color, that pure white, was somehow annoying. So I decided to not pledge for Bones II and III. 

Then I did so on Bones IV... and it's so much better. Grey bones is so much better, on detail and sturdyness and black bones just another level. And here I'm now, 300$ in Bones V ^^

Okay, missed the numbers. Ended up helping Tommy clean stuff that was salvageable from his apartment. Scarry... Just... Yikes. 

 

Then off to work my shift at the co-op, so I'm gonna miss the rest of the numbers till later this evening. 

 

Love the chart, btw!!

For this Kickstarter I've adopted a different strategy for getting to my final pledge.

I'm raising it by 20% each time, which means over time each increase is a larger amount due to the compounding effect.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on another 20% increase.

Ran the PM, and I'm at almost $458 already. I spent something around $550 on Bones 5, which was my biggest Bones yet. Thank goodness my new job has quarterly bonuses, huh? Shame it doesn't give me the free time to paint while at work anymore, though.

Does anyone know who sculpted this beauty?

I'm in love! :wub:

I believe this was the marvellous, mystical, rather sophistical Bob Ridolphi

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.

 

 

dread wolves + blast spell effect eyes (rainbow blast) needs to happen.

Decided to do some prioritizing now that we are a decent way in. After Bones 3 and 4  and moving countries I am a little gun shy on going all in but here are my thoughts so far.

 

No core at this point but definitely getting the following during break out:

 

Horned Tinker (1029)

Catablepas

Zombie GIant 

Three Headed Troll

Boulderkin

 

Some other nice sculpts as well. My rule is once I get to 80% cost, I'll go for the hole core. (I'm probably at ¬$40 here)

 

As for Add-Ons:

Mammoth

Mouslings

Encounter at Gallowgaurd

Greek Expansion

Troll Bridge Encounter

Yokai

Aganzarax

Catapult

Elemental Scions

 

Not a definitive list depending on what comes and how the budget feels in the moment but I am already about bones 4 level

Whereas the Boulderkin are one of the parts I'm least interested in. I just don't need that many medium earth elementals at once.

      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.

      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)
