@TGP doggone it! now I'm trying to figure it out again! You big meanie!


Ummmmmm. (?) I’m here to help (?)




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,



This is fantastic!! Thank you!

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.



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 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.

      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
