Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Good evening all. Kicktraq seems to call it a day at 11pm EST, so here is your day 32 recap. 

 

We pushed passed the Bones 1 backer record and are looking good to easily surpass 18,000 backers. Let's hope that turns into a record last day, because we are going to need it to beat Bones 1 for pledges. Outside of the more unique late surge Bones 1, we need to eclipse the Bones 2 record last day of  $590,727 by about $1,500. Not out of reach, but it won't be easy.

 

Updated the value rating spreadsheet. Now includes the unlocked loot golem (Looks great!), chronoscope 1 and the ghoul queen pit.

 

Here's to a great last day (19 hours)!

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

Lots of good stuff while I was busy doing un-fun things (but I'll have central A/C come this summer and heat come Tuesday--so net gain?).

  • Ghoul Pit!  'Nuff said!
  • Loot Golem: Eh.  Not really my thing.
  • Wraith Riders!  THREE!  Now to get a Murkillor for Blacksting...
  • Sirens!  Not really my thing, but I'm pretty sure I want 'em.
  • Chronoscope!  Well, it's still scattershot (and repeats?), but the grouping is better.
  • Core Set!  This might actually be the first core set I get.  If I got all the expansions I wanted, I'm only a few bucks short of the core price anyway.  So, it's either get the core, or get trimming.

Now to recalc the budget...

They're ghouls not zombies....They dont rot they change.

 

In Lovecraft's stories, at least, they look more or less human enough at first, but devolve from there into something quite bestial as they reach adulthood and begin reveling in their innate ghoulishness.

 

In the mythology, they would be attractive enough to fool unwary travelers and trick them into getting close enough for the Ghuls to grab and drag into tombs to eat - the Ghul legends sounds suspiciously similar to the Rusalka, Sirens, deer woman, film noir Femme Fatales....

 

In the pulp literature, true to the spirit of exploitation, ghouls look like whatever will sell the most magazines:  luridly repulsive male ghouls, luridly sexy female ghouls with a hint of uncanny valley to them....

 

As long as we don't get too stuck on the word "ghoul", this sort of "captive of the savage women" thing was quite popular in pulps:

I can't tell 100% from the pic, but...are the ghouls topless?

 

Almost certainly topless, or close enough to being so that it might as well not matter.

 

That, too, was not uncommon in the pulps - I had a tough time finding a pulp cover that would rate a "PG" for the example above!

So I wonder what the reasoning is for the duplicates?  Is it because they feel those figures deserve Bones Black?

Or is it because this expansion got half-heartedly thrown together to stave off the torches and pitchforks? 
 

 

Those look like the early Bones figures that came out not so great in the original Bones material, not deserving the Bones Black treatment so much as NEEDING it.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.

      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.

      Story
      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!
