Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Ugh...

 

I really, really, like Chronoscope.

 

But I can't justify it.

 

I want to justify it, but I can't.  I already have lots of zombies, and I'm not sure what to make of the "Not to Scale" comment on the trailer.  Is it the image that's not to scale?  Will the miniature be not to scale?  The blob-beast is amazing!  The post-apocalyptics are great and would have fit perfectly with a setting I was mocking up mentally a few years back.  And those killer robots?

 

You guys aren't making this easy, Reaper.  ::P:

Might be holding for the finale.

it seemed strange to me as the final piece, if so, cause they said it wont be like maal drakar or kanjira size. it'll be like the dragons.

 

But they do have the ship as the big showpiece this time around.  I'd get the godzilla if it was size of khanjira. Prob not gonna bother with it as it .

Not to scale almost certainly means the trailer is bigger than shown in the image, where it was shrunk down to fit. Just an educated guess mind you.

you mean a set of monsters? a group sure.  for me, its the size approx (from what they said) of privateers Dracodile, which i already have, so no need for both really.  That said, depends on cost. If its like 25..no..$10-15...sure

Not sure about the Chronoscope expansion.

I already have a lot of post apoc survivors and zombies... of course the same could be said of dragons and Dwarfs, halflings and giants... and I still buy more of all those.

 

Still, the wrecked Airstream looks pretty tempting, and those zombies and some of the survivors have a lot of character.

 

I think this will be a decision I’ll be making very late into the pledge manager.

Cool. Do you know what story that's from? Lovecraftian mythos never really did it for me but I don't think I know night gaunts, might give that one a try.

 

"The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath"

 

Lovecraft apparently suffered from sleep paralysis as a child, in addition to being a precocious reader of his grandfather's library of old books - one of his earliest memories was of waking up at night to find a dark, rubbery, winged shadow-man sitting on his chest and tickling him painfully while he was frozen and unable to move - the things he saw resembled the winged demons from "Paradise Lost" as illustrated by Gustave Dore.  Lovecraft wrote these things - the Nightgaunts - into his stories, as creative writers do.

"...Suddenly, without a warning sound in the dark, Carter felt his curved scimitar drawn stealthily out of his belt by some unseen hand. Then he heard it clatter down over the rocks below. And between him and the Milky Way he thought he saw a very terrible outline of something noxiously thin and horned and tailed and bat-winged. Other things, too, had begun to blot out patches of stars west of him, as if a flock of vague entities were flapping thickly and silently out of that inaccessible cave in the face of the precipice. Then a sort of cold rubbery arm seized his neck and something else seized his feet, and he was lifted inconsiderately up and swung about in space. Another minute and the stars were gone, and Carter knew that the night-gaunts had got him..."

"Nightgaunts are a fictional race in the Cthulhu Mythos and is also part of H. P. Lovecraft's Dream Cycle. The creatures appear in the poem "Night-Gaunts" and the novella The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, both by Lovecraft. Wikipedia"

 

Looks like they are also a Pathfinder/D&D creature.

This mad dash at the end is driving me insane! Still so much I would like to see, of things teased at reaper con! I saw in an above spreadsheet the dragons are gargantuan sized (4 inch base), is that the case? Could have sworn they were on 3 inch bases... This alone may make me need to collect the set of Chromatics in PM...

The thing is that when the apocalypse does come you might not want to play with apoc minis (to depressing) but you will still want to play with dragons and dwarfs, halflings and giants.  ::P:

I'm kind of glad there's a bunch of things I'm not interested in this time around. It's looking like my wish list may be under $400. ::D: Wasn't sure if I'd go for the core this time or not but the difference between what I want and the whole set is $10. For $10 I might as well have twice the minis. Never know where they might get used.

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
