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.

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?

So Reaper is declaring an Arms Race with Wizkids?

 

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.

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.

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
