Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

The giants. Cloud giant, storm giant, and the sea giant, specifically. And the kid heroes are awesome.

+1 for giants.  The Storm Giant and the new Yephima were my favorites from the previews, and I don't think anything has topped them.

 

I'm very fond of Reaper's giants in general.  They've got a great mix of dynamic sculpts with just the right amount of cartoony proportions.  Even the Fire Giant Hellbringer is a great addition to the line, despite being kind of sub rosa in the kickstarter.  I can't wait to see what the Sea Giant looks like!

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

I still need to look back over everything to remember what I'm excited about, cuz there's just so much! Townsfolk are still quite near the top of my list, though. 

 

Even though we have no need and no space for that ship, I really can't stop thinking about it. So many fun ways to paint it keep popping into my head! :lol:

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D 

Yeah... that ship calls to me. And as I'm definitely getting the Brinewind Expansion and Extras... it'd be a shame not to get it...  And as I'm painting the raft and rowboat tonight... 

 

As for what I'm most looking forward to? 

The dinosaurs! Both Fantasy and Diamyo, those sexy dragons, the wraiths, bronze golem and hydra, nearly everything in Fan Favorites... So much good stuff.

As for what I am looking forward to the most from the KS - it is probably the Elf Rangers - every time I see my painted Anirion (77068) and Arthrand Nightblade (77049) minis on my shelf, I can't wait for their brethren from the Core set to join them.   I'd have to look at the campaign page again to remember anything else.

Yes. All of it :lol: :rolleyes:

 

The 2nd & 3rd parts of Brinewind are really exciting, especially with the ships and the dark depths expansion.
 

I’m excited to see what they do with all the concept art. I already like what @Rainbow Sculptor has done with Circe and the satyr (although, he needs a little tail). I’m really hoping that sea giant turns out fantastic.

Ahem

*Looks pompous*

A goat's tail is called a 'scut'. (As are those of deer, sheep, rabbits, and hares.)

Yes!  A group of 5 of these would be great!  And a handgun unit to go with them. 

 

Looking forward to all the unit builder groups, the siege engines, the Dwarf King’s Crypt,  some of Dark Depths, some of Brinewind, and some of Chronoscope.

Does it seem like longer than usual for Kickstarter to be sending the backer info to Reaper?  I don't seem to remember waiting over 2 weeks before... more like a week to 10 days...

I dunno. But then I understand all the parts of: “...wait patiently...”

 

(That was in fact Rule 4: for CATIA operators: wait patiently. That Mil-Spec CAD system will teach a body patience let me tell you.)

Ok, I just checked; for Bones 4 the Kickstarter ended on September 2nd 2017 (Update 77), and the Pledge Manager opened on September 10th (Update 78). Eight days.   So remembering it going much more quickly in the past was correct.  

I note that the number of backers is larger on this one. I’d expect hiccups, exceptions, last minute problems, people’s cards getting replaced, and other stuff &  nonsense increased rather exponentially as the number of individual records (backers) increased.

  Edit: Ignore as I was looking at dollar totals, not backer totals for some unknown brain hiccup reason.:wacko:

 

Yes, agreed that more backers equal more time.  There was about 250,000 more backers for this one than Bones 4 which is a bit over a 10% increase in number of backers, and the difference in time it has taken for the Pledge Manager to open is now over twice as long as Bones 4.     

 

   I have no problem waiting patiently. My pledges are going to be spread out over the whole next year anyway, and the actual arrival of the minis much longer after that.   I just find it a matter of interest that there seems to be a much longer delay than on past Kickstarters, in a kind of  "Things that make you go, Hmmmm..."  kind of way,  even considering the increase in backers.   And if I'm the only one who finds it interesting that's cool too.   It's something to think about between the occasional Updates we get.

Ah, please forgive my ignorance :bow: 

 

Cute little tails are just known as cute little tails to me and no amount of fancy science talk will ever change that :lol: :lol:

      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!

      "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.
