Recommended Posts

I wasn't really excited till now.

Those fish and eel are excellent and the Dolphins made it into Bones!

Nice waking up to less than $25,000 to goal!  Must have had good pledging overnight.   Fingers crossed we will manage to reach the next unlock today!

 

Meanwhile it's off to forage for coffee...

Y'know, it's kinda weird; I am excited about this KS, and there's a LOT of cool stuff being made, but I just can't bring myself to babysit this one. I check it once, maybe twice a day and that's it. I've skimmed this thread, but by no means have I read every word. It's kinda whatever happens, happens.

I've been following Bones V since its launch. I backed 3 and 4; I nearly own all of 4. 

 

5 has some really great ideas brewing, especially with the Encounter set pieces, however, I find it to be pretty underwhelming so far. The Core set and the Daimyo set don't have a strong attraction from me, the dark depths, greek odyssey and brinewind have potential, but I doubt they'll be completed goals.

 

The extras have nice models, and the ship that was teased was BY FAR the most interesting, at least to me. I doubt we'll see it. Bones 4 is a hard thing to live up to. There were SO MANY good things about it that I understand bringing that kind of fire again may be taxing. 

 

As 5 stands nothing is scratching any itch I have, I felt like 4 had more bang for my buck. Unless some more things stick out, I don't think I'll be a Bones V backer.

I need basic monsters that I can use to run "out-of-the-box" adventures on game night.

 

Every expansion has one or two basic monsters that I can use and a lot of niche minis that I can't use, which will leave me waiting for retail on everything but select pieces from the core set and add ons.

I'm hoping the ship will unlock.

Also there is a smaller boat, somewhere earlier in this thread someone showed it.

 

If you pledge one Dollar you can back and have access to the Pledge Manager.

That way if something shows up you will be able to get it for KS prices.

And else, one dollar isn't much and you can always cancel at the last moment.

I wouldn’t be too pessimistic just yet. Reaper has never not completed an Expansion set, so I’m sure we will see all those filled out before the end. There’s still a lot of unlocking to occur.  Also, given the amount of time and effort Reaper has put into the development and promotion of the pirate ship, I would bet good money (figure of speech, not endorsing betting on the forums) that we will certainly see it before the end.

This is the BONES V thread:

In answer to your post, maybe you might want to wait till they split up the Core Set, usually one can buy parts of that, like the villagers, or the elves I think.

That way you might get what you need?

Yesterday on Reaper’s fireside chat, ReaperJon answered a question about the boat and said it would be revealed next week... so it sounds like we will get a chance to throw money at it soon. I am not die hard about anything in this ks... but have no doubts that all the expansions will be fully realized by the end.

I'm pleasantly surprised by Part II of the Dark Depths Expansion.

The Eel and the Clam, the Dolphins and that Devil Ray are my favorites, combined with the grouper,the seahorse, the sharks and the crocosaurus and dunkleosteus it makes a great set.

I will also use the merfolk and that beholder, not sure about the Ogres, I have little need or desire to paint those, the goblins are nice, in the worst scenario one could chop them up and make fish / crab parts.

 

Now all we need is a little shipwreck,  maybe a large octopus and a sea dragon!

Oh ye of little faith!  I have no doubt we'll round out all expansion and unlock the ships.

 

0.000% doubt.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
