Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

It would never work; cats would end up just pushing everything on the deck, as well as all the cannon, off the sides of the ship anyway, just to watch them fall.    :lol:

 

This works better when the cat is on top. When the cat is down below, ... well if you're at ReaperCon you can ask my wife about "Kitty want to play with a hammer?" ::D:

And we certainly don't need that!

(The wailing, I'd be all over some Vikings!)

 

As long as they have spears, round shields, and spangenhelms (or similar) without any stupid horns. Some axes and sword would also be fine.

Use a clear one with the Blue Tamiya Clear over the top of it?

 

For ice, some blue would probably be useful, but I'd recommend making quite a bit of the surface opaque white as well, and possibly adding a bit of snow flock. The opaque will make the figure pop on the table much better than just clear blue. (Tamiya, Badger Minitaire Ghost Tints, or Reaper Clear Blue, but for that last you'll want to mix the blue paint about 1:8 or so with Gloss Sealer).

 

Also, at least for the clear bits, gloss generally works best. Matte will look frosted (unless frosted is what you're trying for, of course.

Maybe we need a Skeletal Expansion of commonly seen animals for Bones VI

Discworld aside*, having just run an encounter with a skeletal ox and three skeletal pigs, I would appreciate more skeletal livestock.

 

*Not that I'm upset about anything Discworld-related.

[MOD]

Reminder thread is for Bones 5 Kickstarter. Other topics have other threads.

Reaper Live on Twitch should be discussed in the video subforum.

[/MOD]

Can we get someone to resume starting threads per episode? General users are not allowed to start threads in that forum.

My remarks on the Discworld scenario  with skelies led me to immediately conclude this is an under-served area in the Reaper Bones Line.

I suggested several names for the Large Ship Model during the Kickstarter.

Since then I've been doing some research on Historical Pirate Ship Names and here is the beginnings of my list, attributable to the Large Magazine Format book;  All About History Book of Pirates, fourth edition. Copyright 2019 Future Publishing Limited

-

Adventure Galley - William Kidd 1695-98 Note: This ship had both Sails and Oars making it a great threat in calm weather.

.

Fancy - Henry Every 1694-98

.

Whydah - Samuel Bellamy 1716-17

.

Royal Fortune - Bartholomew Roberts {AKA Black Bart} 1719-21  Note: Generally acknowledged as the most successful pirate of the Golden Age of Piracy.

.

Bersheba - Henry Jennings 1716

.

Charles - John Halsey 1707

.

Amity - Thomas Tew 1693

.

Just a start.  The Tentacles will be adding more.

Of the historical ship names I've come across so far, when combined with Sophie I lean towards

Sophie's Fortune

It has a nice ring and it makes reference to how our collective wallets have been lightened in the effort to bring this ship to actuality.

HMS Cowbell, because it should also have a ding-hy.

How about RMSS* Cowbell for the Pinance?

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
