Thanks for posting these - that is an awesomely horrifying sculpt!  This would be great to use with the charnel pit encounter, as a bone golem raised by the Ghoul Queen from the pit full of bones!

 

This just helped solidify me getting the Fan Favorites, thank you!

 

I actually just ordered one of the Mantic Treasury Terrain Crates, partly because I need one of the swords in a stone for the next module I'm running, but partly because we unlocked the Loot Golem. One of the big piles of treasure will someday animate as the Loot Golem, largely as you have just described with the Fan Favorites bone...thing, and the ghoul bone pit.

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

From Reaper's store, metal search term "jackal".

Hopefully these are the "Anubis figures" Ron mentioned.

 

If you want something beefier, there are 6 Gnoll options in Bones, 11 in metal.

 

 

 

I have these in metal ( except the werejackal) I would like to see more in Bones, but different sculpts and maybe Ogre sized or Giant sized.

 

 As it is, we can't have it all, BONES V has a lot of great stuff, I'm very excited for all the seamonsters, pirates and the ship.

Here's a first run at a spreadsheet list of all the minis in Bones 5

Very useful. Thank you very much for spending the effort to do this and maiking it available to all us other Repear Bones Zealots.

 

Though I do like the fact that "Pizza Dungeon Dragon" is armed with a Pizza. Best sort of weapon for placating the hungry hordes...

 

Another thought on paying for all this stuff.

I pledged what I have in the KS (only sensible way. All users of Bones KS should practice resposible pledging)

Now there is, what about a year-ish (probably some sort of Goblin calendar keeping in there somewhere) time period in which to keep piling the readies into the money-pit (imagine the strike-through bit here cos I don't know how to do it) I mean Pledge Mangler.

Sit back and wait for 1/2 a year !!**!! (though that time can be profitably spent saving up for Bones 6 which ought to be due fairly soon afterish, according to past performances [but as we all know past performance is no indicator of future things] so bigger pledges for even more big things)

So I was thinking what I could use it all for and if it was worth it..I don't game just paint for display and fun, but I like to create armies and warbands anyway.

 

  • 901- Spikeshell -  Lost World Project
  • 902- Rakshasa -  Nippon Project ( Asian enough for me /Weretiger)
  • 903- Balding rogue -  just a cool sculpt I want to paint,maybe he can be part of my Lords of Death Project.
  • 904/906- Axoloti - Are you kidding me? - Lost World project
  • 907/911 - Mephits - I love small evil critters, so I'll find a way, maybe in the Undead Army.
  • 912/914 - Wild Folk - These are useless to me...NO!
  • 915-Raccoon Ranger - No idea what I should do with it, but I will paint it up anyway, he could join the Yokai Set.
  • 916 - Mamlord - Horde of the North, he will fit in with my Barbarians, Megafauna and other semiprehistoric/chaos stuff.
  • 917/920 - Blood Imps - I love small evil critters, so I'll find a way, maybe in the Undead Army. ( Yeah I repeat myself!)
  • 921 - Buglips - No need for it, but since it's @buglips*the*goblin himself I will paint it ( blue) in his honour!
  • 922 - Chicken Swarm - Too ridiculous and so it will be painted! Maybe add it to the Yokai 
  • 923 - Ghoulsbane - Will find a place in my Undead Army
  • 924- Vampiress - If there's one thing I can't resist, it's a female vampire..So yes, Ladies of Death Project
  • 925- Melusine Darkember - Necromancer material! Ladies of Death Project.
  • 926- Ungorth - Of course, Undead Army
  • 927- Hellborn Paladin? - Ladies of Death Project, she will fall to her evil nature !
  • 928- Female Landknecht - Ha! Landsknechts were around till the 16ct century, I'm sure I can squeeze her in my Conquistadore/Pirate Force of the Lost World.
  • 929/932 Gatormen - Do I need to spell it out for you? L.O.S.T. W.O.R.L.D.P.R.O.J.E.C.T.
  • 933/936 Pizza Dungeon Animatronics - No use for those! No.
  • 937 - Demonic Lasher - I guess it would make a great ONI for my Nippon Project.
  • 938/943 - Cockatrice set - I'm not sure about those, maybe I could use the Cockatrice's for something, the Halfling is useless to me anyway. So this one is doubtful

 

All in all it seems it's worth it after all

I'm missing a site which collects all the pictures like they did for Bones IV. I visited reaperminiatures.com/bones4 many times during and after the campaign to look at those pictures.

We've seen a lot of close ups on either Twitch, Facebook or in this forumthread, and I appreciate all the people crossposting to help everyone see everything without going through all the platforms, but a central hub of all the stuff that has been shown would help to look stuff up again in 3 months time without going through hundreds of pages of forum content or hours of video.

Yeah....are we still in the enthusiasm tread or I get mixed the enabling one?...

Nope still bones V...

@Evilbookworm im with you... But then again as everybody here as pointed out, being adult means you pick what you enjoy and gow you do it I mean that kind of money may as well be an apparel piece or some gold-plated doodad, so don't sweat it, better yet tell your adult brain that this dough is money that you don't use in... Well the worst vice you can pick, and prestó! You're a paragnon of ok-yshness!!

@ShaneB thans man, will keep it at hand

So, I seem to be in a bit of a minority here in that I've pledged for everything I want and do not expect to add anything more before the PM closes. I just would not be able to cope with multiple pledges. I think that Reaper are very clever to run the kickstarter over 2 paydays, so I could use 2 lots of hobby money at the start and finish of the project.

 

For the record wife and I are getting the following;

Core set

2 x Dark Depths

Dungeon Dwellers

Fan Favourites

Aganzarak

Goroloth

Encounter at Gallowgard

 

Only about half what I backed for last time, so I'm being responsible... right?

 

Yesterday I actually opened my Bones 4 set and started to paint the horde of goblins. So my conscience is a little clearer.

It just happens that this month my car get's it's annual check up and needs new tires for the Winter.

So I had less to spend for the KS, I will therefore add more during the PM phase.

I want to be that way, but it looks like I'll have to wait for Bones VI before such happens ^_^

The Greek expansion was/is of great interest to me and I would love to see  Egyptian, Norse, Indian subcontinent, Native Northern American expansions in future KS 

 

Agreed. I could get a lot of mileage out of expansions like that. The Greek models were the whole reason I was so excited about this Kickstarter; after seeing the pics from Reapercon I knew I was in for at least $50... and then I promptly spent over $200 more...

Same here. Pledge upfront and then wait 1.5 yrs for it to arrive.

 

I'm in a bit of a strange, unexpected scenario.  I initially said $200 max. And that lasted a long time. Then I had to raise it to 250. Then 300.  The Friday/sat I was working all day/night and then taking kids for their classes Saturday so I slept around 3 pm and woke up after the pledges closed.  Since I knew I would miss the last 3 hour rush, I added another 50.  Figured fan expansion would have some cool rare monsters and/or be some big stuff like mossbeard at the end. 

 

The Kaiju and red dragon are not in that league. (Although I'm getting both and will keep the red) Sadly I don't really like anything in the fan expansion.  Unless my friend , who we are combining (total 650 pledge) , adds a bunch more, I overbid $50. 

 

Trying to decide if there's anything I want and not really. Usually bones have been back loaded for me. The stuff I want are the cool monsters at the end. Here, it's all front loaded. Even with shipping, if we remove that 50 there's still an overbid.  

 

So I'm adding fan expansion almost just to fill the slot. Maybe I take the Japanese one instead since I do want a few figures from there. Sigh

 

This has never happened before...

Me too! I kept hoping they would put one up.

      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!
       
      NSFW link:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1615588135/les-muses-lilith-and-la-boite-a-bijoux
       
      "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!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
