Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

@dschumm Here is a link to me posting the screenshot of the launch. Two posts below it is a screenshot of Reaper Live where they show Sir Forscale with the Dreadmere rowboat.

FYI - the rowboat itself, not counting the pole w/ the lantern, is 3" long.

For those looking at the size of the ship, I did a rough estimate of overall dimensions based on the renders and the provided scale, and compared those to the Falling Star by WizKids. It is going to be HUGE.

Is each red or blue square an inch?

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.

 

Edit: based on feedback, will post it.

So the Wiz Kid ship is a 20-Gun Brigantine? 

 

Chris Lewis has modeled up a 30-Gun Sloop of War.

So Reaper is declaring an Arms Race with Wizkids?

holy crap. you have that setup in your house!??!?!

Yep.  When we moved 3 years ago, one of the wish list items was me being able to have a dedicated gaming space.  We found a great place with a pool table area that got repurposed into my gaming area. I did a whole thread on it here

 

 

So we need 15 new backers now to match Bones 4. Think we can do that during Bones Live?

A small Chinese Junk would be awesome!

 

You might want to look at the "Clever Paper Junk". I got their sloop, which I quite liked and have been thinking about picking up the junk as well.

I would expect the Reaper ship to be the better sailer since it carries much more canvass. 

 

They could be about evenly matched in firepower. It would depend on what each ship is armed with. Ten 24 pounders in the broadside against Nine 18 pounders and six 9 pounders would be roughly even.

Sadly, it is not the daily Twitch feed we have gotten during the KS period that has given us the "doubting Thomas" attitude. In the months previous on Reaper Live, Ron especially has made it quite clear that he enjoys baiting the audience by teases and sometimes rather sophomoric acts. So that is why many of us are guilty of little faith.

 

One person calls it baiting another calls it promoting...there isn’t a fine line between them. Kind of a blurry mess where you’d like to have a line.

The Wizkid ship missed the mark for me because it has separate cardboard cut outs for decks. 

Yea, whats worse is their prototype designs that the previewed didnt have that.

Its difficult to win an arms race when you're two years behind.

The Soviets managed to keep up and pull ahead a few times. sputnik, Yuri Gagarin, Foxbat. There is an itneresting take on this in the historical science fiction series "Worldwar/Colonization" by Harry Turtledove.

One of the CAV guys has insanely epic and large 3D mountain maps to play on. 

 

As for ships, if we're putting requests in I want a Bluenose, because, well.  Reasons.   That and the teased small ships.  I'm looking forward to getting a few of those...

A Sloop of War, a Cog, a Galley, and a Drakkar would complete my list. Dwarven Ironclads I "think" I could scratch build.

      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!
