Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

There may be some confusion because some figures from Bones 4 were made in Bones Black about which nobody knew at the time. So one might assume (incorrectly, for the reasons you mention) that they were Bones and then Bones Black, even though they were BB from the beginning.

There is likely also confusion because of the color.    Many of the original white Bones have been done in a darker grey when they were re-ordered.

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

Among the many reasons I won't play a GW game or at a GW store.

 

For a tournament in a game I will play, I would expect painted models, and generally pretty close to what they should be. But for any other purpose, meh, whatever, so long as I think you're making an effort.

 

I think you and I have very similar opinions of GW. I haven't spent a dime on their stuff in nearly 20 years and I never will again. Nor do I play any of their games war games. About the only thing I will touch is some of their very old board games like Judge Dredd and Chaos Marauders. Even then, I refused to buy the Fantasy Flight re-release of Chaos Marauders simply because GW would still see some of that money through licencing fees.

I also did an overlay of a picture of someone holding a WizKid ship versus a Reaper estimate, but it is a WoTC copyrighted picture. Not sure if I can post it here.

My old CA gaming group still plays 40k 2e.   There is enough stuff on the secondary market that they all buy used now. 

 

35 more backers to go to match Bones 4.

Fair use of a copyrighted work is a case-by-case decision based on four complex balancing factors (really). I suspect use for comparison would probably count as fair, but that will depend on the specifics of the use, and I'm not a lawyer anyway, so that should not be construed as legal advice.

I think the main difference is how grumpy the IP owner will get. :)

A meme made from a film pic probably isn't going to get the filmmaker's hackles up.

A pic showing another game/minis company's product against Reaper's competing product might result in an email or two.

I agree with most of what you people say about GW, it is an annoying policy, and even more they ever increasing prices. 

 

But when it's about models, they can be really, really good. Not only about detail but also easy to build/clean, and I never had any trouble with them afterwards. If I buy a GW Dragon, I know (If I build it correctly) It will stand exactly as its supposed to do. 

With Reaper, on the other hand... I have my Dance of Death from the past KS leaning on the side of my shelves because it cant support its own weight and the material bends to one side. I know other more experienced people already built that model with metal rods or other stuff drilled inside the dragon's body, but I didn't imagined it could happen.

Pretty sure this use case falls firmly in the "commentary and criticism" clause.  Also not a lawyer....

Still hoping for an A-Ford, some Explorers from the 20th century, the Artic expansion sounds amazing.

I wonder...in the end during the PM I will probably buy more than I intended to anyway.

 

You're making the same mistake a few people in the KS comments made yesterday. They never said "Arctic," they only said "snow."

 

To quote Ron's response to those Arctic assumptions...

"Arctic? Maybe Asian..."

I am of the opinion that those of us who prefer to assemble our minis, rather than have them preassembled, are from [model building] types of hobbies.

 

I'm not. I come purely from a D&D perspective, and am a 13-year user of D&D's pre painted mini's.

 

I dipped my toe into mini painting with a great deal on one of the D&D board games that comes w/ unpainted mini's from the same molds as the old DDM line ($37 for a game w/ ~50 mini's), & due to wanting terrain like barrels & crates (miniature market has their cheap Tiny Terrain line of resin barrels, etc.)

 

After getting a 3-pack of Bones skeletons where one of them had its shield glued on incorrectly... Yeah, I'd rather assemble the mini's myself.

I wholeheartedly agree. But that part doesn't come up until it gets to court. I'm not a lawyer either but I do follow developments in IP law because I find it fascinating (and often enraging). The principle in play here is that "fair use is a defense" meaning it doesn't protect you from a lawsuit, it helps you win it.

is this the painted version?

 

if its the same size, this image is on amazon and linked many places that i can find.  use that if you're concerned *Shrug* doubt wizards would even notice hehe. 

 

from what ive seen in the film world, if its a public available image, its fine. ie. from a trailer, etc.  but if someone sneaks a photo from the set, during filming that is not released via an official press source from a sanctioned interview,etc then they ask for it to be removed.

You're more willing to comment on a complex case than I am.

 

But just for reference, you have to consider the substantiality of the use (depends on how it's used), the purpose of the use (commerce is a negative, which this would be, but commentary and criticism weighs toward fair use), the effect on the market of the original work (the work in question would be the photo, not the ship), and the nature of the work.

 

As I say, it's a complex, fact-dependent inquiry.

(Also, I would probably be willing to take the chance, but I wouldn't make any recommendations for anyone else. ::D:)

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
