Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Was just thinking, when I open up the Core Set in the distant future, I'd love it to include a fold-out poster of the Core Set graphic from the Kickstarter page, just so I get a reminded of exactly HOW MUCH is included.

Chalk me up as being in the "Sophie's Bounty" and "Sophie's Fortune" camp. They're such obvious choices that I think it's definitely the way to go. I mean, a lot of the names folks are coming up with are excellent, and I hope you all use those on your ships, but for an official Reaper product name, I think it's only right to name it after Sophie. :lol:

I also like the name Sophie’s Embrace since Sophie is a succubus after all. And it makes me think of the song Brandy and how the sea is what seduces sailors.

Sophie's Kiss?

Miss Fortune?

Sophie's Kiss was also a name that popped into my head when coming up with ideas.

 

Now I'm stuck with that name, and only that one.

Like, I'm not going to riot or anything, but I'm pretty disappointed that this ship isn't likely to be named "Dark Maiden."

 

She's a ship that's been part of Reaper lore for twenty years at this point, she's already got a beautiful figurehead (several sculpts), she's a pirate ship, she's a GHOST pirate ship.

 

But I can see why crowdsourcing the official name is profitable for Reaper. I'm just a bit bummed out by it.

 

I am hoping that one of the first extra figureheads they make (assuming that possibility actually happens) is a new sculpt of Dark Maiden.

Boaty McBoatface!

 

Seriously, not sure if you saw it in the news ages ago but the UK had a public poll about naming a new science vessel.  The public overwhelmingly chose "Boaty McBoatface".  I can't help but think of this every time someone suggests a name for the ship.

 

Officials ultimately rejected the name for the main ship itself.  Instead they named it the extremely stuffy sounding "RRS Sir David Attenborough" but named one of its submersibles "Boaty McBoatface" instead.

 

Here's a link to the Wikipedia if interested.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boaty_McBoatface

 

Ron even mentioned it in the last Reaper Live.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
