Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Wait, a dire eel?   Intriguing. 

 

And of course the kind of looks like a Doom eye thingy with crab arms reveals itself.  Nice. 

 

Wonder if it'll be a water dragon, or dragon-shark in part 3...

Feeling very "meh" about the Dark Depths unlock.   May pick up the merfolk at some point.  Killer clam? Last I knew clams don't often produce giant pearls.

Unfortunately, I'm kind of underwhelmed by Bones V. I tend to dislike extremely large figures and would prefer to make my own terrain so there's not a whole lot I want so far.

 

Yeah, here too.  In for the spider temple set though.  Two if DH wants one.  The bridge and gate don't interest me much.

I'm a first time backer.  I only discovered this hobby after the bones IV kickstarter was done the pledge manager closed.  I guess the more often you back and the larger your collection the more picky one can be.  It only makes sense, if you have a ton of one thing from previous kickstarters than having more of them isn't ideal, especially if you are happy with the amount you have.

 

As for me, I'm super happy with what's on offer for Bones V since I kind of need a bit of everything anyway.    I'm super stoked about the Thing in the Well.  

 

So far I'm in on the core set, the Dungeon Dwellers expansion, the paints, and the Dragon Bust.  I'm still eyeballing the Greek expansion but we'll have to see about that once the 3rd tier unlocks.

 

Glad you're having fun because people like you are fueling this extravaganza.  I went in pretty big on #1 and #4, smaller n #2 and #3,  and don't need a lot of random, general use figures. Never mind that I have most of it in metal already.

If I were a fantasy player I would be into this much more heavily. I am waiting for scifi and Chronoscope, so I just pledged a smaller amount so far.

 

I want to spend money on pulp adventurers, starship crew, supernatural investigators, steampunk characters, space colonists,  cyberpunk gangsters,  and zombie hunters.  C'mon Reaper, give me an excuse to throw my money at you! 

 

Right now I'm in for the catfolk, the Yokai, the spider temple, and the Greek exp.  $85-90?

In one of the YouTube videos last week, Jason Weibe (IIRC) dropped a mention of a sea serpent when he wasn't supposed to.  I bet it's in part 3.

Maybe killer clams do. Maybe fantasy clams do. Who knows, seems like a very minor nitpick though . Clams are often show with pearls. 

 

Maybe this carnivorous fantasy species makes them to lure in prey like foolish treasure seeking divers. is amazing what made up species can explain away

 Considering that the largest creatures tend to be at the greatest depths, it may also be a glowing lure of some sort.

Very true, use it to draw something in range of the snapping shell in that deep abyssal darkness

 

And then the epic fight of kraken trying to get his tentacles out of a killer clam

And I'd like a nice, big mantis.

I would personally like some 1/1 scale earwigs and silverfish in Bonesium.

 

At the usual 1"=5' scale, those would be some pretty creepy crawlies.

Yep. I think my dad dragged us kids to see this many decades ago. Even if I don't have a gaming use for it I might have to see if I can make as diorama with some bored kids looking at it.

      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!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
