I'm debating trying to paint the boulderkin as lavamen...

Welp. Now I need two sets of boulderkin.

My personal preference order [on the ship] would be brown opaque, standard Bones grey opaque, clear translucent, then green translucent, but I'll probably get one no matter what color it's done in. 

 

My preference is exactly the same as yours.

If the Boulderkin are medium-sized, you can also use them as Galeb Duhr.

 

This is my plan for them.

Just looking around and found the Bounty, I really think that paint scheme would look good on the sailing ship.

Oddly, I may be most excited by the villagers add-on. They will be very useful when I run "Against the Cult of the Reptile God."

My only issue with the commoners is they are so...static. Compare them to the Townsfolk set in Bones 4 core, where most of the commoners were in active poses, doing stuff.  I would much rather have that set of commoners (and would likely be getting that add-on, if that's what was offered; nothing about the Bones 5 townsfolk says "buy me" to my eyes).

Weekends tend to be slow, so I'm hoping we'll see an unlock closer to lunch rather than dinner. But we'll see.

I had a game awhile back that involved villagers being attacked by hill giants.  One of my players point out as one of the villagers was running away.  "Is she carrying the tray too, gotta save the food right?"

To which we laughed but honestly.  I dont mind some static villagers to mix in with the active.

I was considering getting two sets of the villagers, one to paint for a Halloween village, one for normal villagers. 
 

Of course, now that I really think about it, I would need three sets, the third for Christmas villagers :ik_oops:

If you're going to go that far, you might as well get a set for Valentines Day, St Patricks Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving. ::D:

I agree.  Even if they just looked like they were moving their hands while they were talking about something would be a drastic improvement.

This can not be emphasized enough for us wargamers!

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.

A-MEN!

I view these new townsfolk as “background” extras to be used when a scene needs to be set, needs to be filled out.

 

The previous townsfolk, the ones with more character, are the ones who have speaking parts, the ones that interact with the player characters.

 

That’s what I see in my brain anyway.

That's a fair enough point. I just wish the Bones 4 set & the Bones 5 set were a little more intermixed. 

 

If they had done some "action pose" & some "static pose" in both sets...that would have been nice.  Instead it feels like this KS got the static background commoners afterthoughts.  Decent for those who already did Bones 4, but for someone new to it... 20 lumps of boring.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
