That hardware element that the Swivel Guns are mounted on ..?.. that is called a Pintle.  Or more specifically, particularly with more modern guns: Gun Pintle, Gun Pintle Mount Assembly, etc. 

 

There are Pintles involved with the ship’s rudder as well ...completely different piece of hardware. 

 

Swivel Guns, scratchbuild 

For a tiny bit of hardware search for “ T-Pin Swivel Bases “ (from the jewelry making hobby).

Here's a first run at a spreadsheet list of all the minis in Bones 5.  I play D&D 5e, so the extra fields work mostly around that system, but they could be useful for sorting otherwise.

 

Reaper didn't put names on as many of these minis as last time, so there's a lot of minis named "Grave Knight 3" or similar.  I tried to track down everything currently available in one of the metal lines, and name it according to its name in that version.

 

The numbering scheme for the Options also wound up so big (due to all the minis in the Encounter sets) that it overlapped with the numbers for the Dungeon Dwellers set.  I don't know if that's a problem for Reaper's management of the Kickstarter.  If it is, they'll change it and I'll have to change the numbers.

 

Let me know if you see anything I missed.  Hope this is useful,

I want cheap.

 

I want plastic.

 

And I DON'T want trees or stalagmites.

 

If I am buying stirges it will be Otherworlds, which at least don't have trees and stalagmites attached to them.

 

Since Reaper isn't making them, I hope WizKids does.

Yes!!

 

In for $650, current want list is $834...

my players have made some... questionable decisions... that have eaten up a lot of game time without progressing the story all that much.  

Story of my Life...

I'm recovering from the wallet hit which ended up being greater than I expected.

 

Yeah.  I know what you mean.  That seems to be the norm with this.  I know I'm going to be adding a couple things later too.  Just to spread out the pain a bit.

In my case it led to the deaths of two party members in as many weeks...

Well, nobody died yet, but only because the BBEG rolled a bunch of 1s in a row.

Thanks. I just signed up for Twitch, trying to figure out how to get in to the channel. I think I'm there, but not 100%. I guess I'll see how it pans out in an hour...

Right now, they are hosting another streamer which means you'll see someone else's video on Reaper's channel. The channel you want is https://www.twitch.tv/reaperminiatures/

6:00 pm central.  Not 5:00.

Is that right? Seems like, at least in the past, people have been posting things from the Twitch stream while I'm at work, and I get off work at 7pm EST, which would be 6pm Central...

      Just throwing this out there for anyone interested (yes I did back and no, I don't know them)...
      I did back their last KS as well and was happy with the results. They did a great in keeping people up to date and got all of the files out quickly.
       
      The figures look "funny" in the pictures due to them using the print-ready 3D files. I think that at the smaller scales especially, they are enhanced just enough so they will keep their detail and make them easier to paint IMO.
       
      Anyway take a look if you are interested!

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.
