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.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      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.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      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.
