Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

They are great for warbands, though. I'm a big fan of sets like that. In fact, I think that is one thing this KS is really killing.

boulderkin, undead, cat folk, skeleton pirates, dragonborn, elves - its like a whole SoBH/frostgrave league of minis available.

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.

Medium and small elementals are the ones I am MOST likely to use several at a time.

 

No one of them will do as much damage as a large elemental, but together, for the same CR, they do more.

 

Most often a large, and then enough medium or small to bring the encounter to the next level up.

I just think they would be fun to paint. And my wife might just steal them to paint herself.

 

They are also great for summoners who love bringing in multiple elementals

Haven't pledged yet as funds are low and several things are competing for them right now. Yeah, I know I won't be charged until the end but still. Most likely will have to start with a minimal pledge and add more later on. Not as excited about Bones 5 as earlier ones and yet my minimum is looking to be over $250. Well done Reaper when you can get that much out of me when I'm not excited. :rolleyes:

Pledge for $1 - gets you in and helps to push the number closer to the target of exceeding Bones 1 number of pledges.

I'll probably throw $50-100 at it before long.

This can not be emphasized enough for us wargamers!

Not to mention you'll be able to pay Kickstarter prices in the pledge manager, instead of the 20-50% more that a late backer would be paying...

I'm waiting for a few things to happen before I add money.

 

I want to see what's in the Dark Depth's Expansion ( complete) and I would like to know if they finally decide what material the ship will be and the price on that.

The Spider is a must and I would like to see how the Core Set will be split up for add ons, I like the Giant.

Also..waiting for that Chronoscope thing, I would love an A-Ford!

 

 

 

 

Okay, Since the Spider is a must I upped to $10 for now.

I'm in for a few pieces from the Bones 5 Core Set, but multiples of them, and a few pieces from the Bones 5 Options.

 

I need multiples of the Blighted Dryad and Briarlings, Elk, Giant Weasel, and Scarecrow.

 

I can also use one of the Money Lender, Burgermeister, and Noblewoman.

 

Then I need the Elf Rangers, Catfolk, Dreadmere Heroes, Dreadmere Villains, Female NPCs, and the Dark Elves.

 

I will also add the Dragonfolk and Townsfolk.

 

There are two or three pieces from each Expansion that I could also use, but I need multiples of them, and I don't have money to pay for multiple Expansions, so I will have to wait for retail.

 

Everything else, while awesome, is too huge or too random for me to use on game night.

I really don't get the opposition to a clear translucent ship, TBH. The argument that, if it's not opaque, it just can't be used right out of the box is weird to me. By that logic, they should be dyeing it brown in the manufacture so it's more "usable" right out of the box. If it's translucent, those who want it to be a ghost ship can use it, and those who want it to not be can use it straight out of the box before painting it, and can paint it to be opaque. If it's opaque, it might as well come pre-dyed anyway, since I'm going to have to paint it anyway, and I can't get a ghost ship out of it either way.

I'm definitely throwing more at this then I thought I would.

 

I've pledged for:- The Greek Expansion, the Storm Giant and the Rune Wights.

From the core set I'm hoping to get:- Both Kid Hero sets, the Dark Elves, the Trolls, the Female NPCs and the Witch, so far. (Plus there's a few minis I like from the starter bunch, but I don't think that gets split up).

 

Plus I've already got a handful of stuff I want to get at retail (Sea Ogres, Earth Scion, both Onis and the Spider-Lady).

 

And now I've looked at everything, I'm once again tempted by the Dungeon Dwellers Expansion...

      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!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      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)
