Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Quick question if anyone knows. Is ReaperCon always in the Aug/Sept timeframe?  My company has offices in Austin.  My plan would be to take a trip to Austin then drive up to Denton for the Con and go home via Dallas Airport.  It is probably the only way I would ever get to go.  I am in Austin a few times a year anyway but for 2020 I can change my schedule so the two happen at the same time.

ReaperCon will be Labor day weekend for the next few years.

That's true. Perpendicular do the line, plane, or N-space in question. But you can't know what it is until you find out what it's perpendicular to.

Poor bugger, we're looking at 30F and clear now. Good weather to get outside.

 

Shirtsleeve weather. Good for walking or shoveling or chopping wood. A little cold for sunbathing.

Howdy folk,

Here is the Day 31 update. Only two(ish) more days of chaos to go.

 

We finally got the start of the late surge we have been waiting for. Hopefully this will alleviate worries we were too front loaded and we will beat all previous records. The backers record looks like it is sure to fall, possibly today. If past trends hold we will also break the pledge record of Bones 1, as long not too many people sit on $1/low pledges and wait until after the KS ends.

Here is the latest spreadsheet for a;; the sets, add ons and boosters.

 

For those interested in the spreadsheet breakdown of the KS options, a few things:

  • I made this to track what I wanted from the KS and started playing around with the relative value and value rating numbers. This is merely a rough estimate, and actual retail may (will) vary. It is also not indicative of each set’s worth, everything in this KS is a great deal, the true value really depends on what minis appeal to you.
  • I have tried to parse out the minis by retail cost, and rearranged them by the D&D terms for base size. This is far from perfect, but gives a close approximation. Some of the larger minis are very hard to put a price on, the add on dragons could retail for 25, 30 or $40 in the end.
  • The Value Rating is pretty straight forward, it is just the Relative Value (estimated retail) divided by the (Kickstarter) Cost. The higher the number the ‘better’ the deal. Again, the best deal are the minis you want, everything here is a great deal.
  • If you see any errors, or note discrepancies in sizes I have assigned minis for each set, please let me know.

The dino people seem to evoke strong emotions

 

Ugh, don't get me started on them again. (Too late)

 

Imagine Daimyo with:

Goliath sumo barbarian

Human/elf samurai fighter/paladin

Tabaxi ninja rogue

Human/elf/tiefling archer ranger

Half-orc ronin ranger/fighter

Dwarf/halfling ashigaru that could cover multiple classes.

 

...or just all human. And I'm sure others have even better ideas for race/class mixes.

As long as they're all one type of dinosaur equipped differently, I would be ok with that. 

Give me a set of 5 blacktooth's in Riot Police Gear or a set of 4 Thunderfoot's armed with Molotov cocktails and baseball bats, and I'll be all over them. 

Give me one of each, and no thank you.

I can't, because the Daimyo expansion doesn't appeal to me at all. There isn't a single piece in it that I want.  I'm just not a big fan of that aesthetic. 

I'm thrilled that others like it though.

Be about the same as me making a trip to Miami. 3.5 hour drive, roughly. Would probably drive up in the evening, overnight in a motel, enjoy the party,  overnight again, drive back Sunday morning.

 

Basically what I did for Shark Con in Aug

Oh, the lovely traffic on 95 or the turnpike starting around Boyton Beach. Don't miss that at all.

If what you named were in Daimyo Expansion, I would have added Daimyo Expansion to the Pledge Manager in a heartbeat. Daimyo' Expansion's a pass for me, though. I don't need all of the dinosaurs and weird undead.

I rather not have dino pirates, I don't like them in Daimyo, they don't belong in these settings.

They belong in the Jungle.

 

I would like the Sloop to make an appearance by now, maybe a Walrus?

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One  
       
      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      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!
