Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

While true, why would anyone not want to care about old greek religions in their campaign.  The ancient Greek deities are some of the best adventure and drama that you can add to any RPG.

 

in the campaign i DM, several greek gods will most likely be killed before campaign is over....  :)

 

but which ones will not be predetermined, so even i dont know exactly what will happen and what players will do.

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

Hello everybody, I'm a new Reaper addict, I pledged for Bones5 as my first Bones KS, but I've been acquiring some minis throughout the year from the web store. I already seem to have unpainted minis all over my desk and shelves and I'm beginning to have real storage issues... 

 

Before the PM closes I will have gone almost all-in (no war/siege machines), I fear :;,;: and since I just completed an order for Black Friday Sophies and 12 Days Xmas specials, I also think I'm having some, err, controversial time with my significant half in a few days (of course this is nothing compared to what will happen when a helicopter will land a large pallet in front of our door in 2021).

 

Now, where is the addiction thread?

Well what ever you do, don't let Dionysus die or there won't be any good drink for the wake/celebrations after the conflict. :poke:

Welcome to the madness!  Accumulating the minis is half the fun. ::D:

 

Actually there is a thread for those who are addicted to minis. They are known as House Figmentus, where  everyone is mini crazy::)::

For me it's

 

1. Brinewind and the Extras - I just love it, every bit of it.

 

2. Chronoscope, - Much to my surprise, I found myself really drawn to it when it was announced.

 

3. Daimyo - I don't have any Asian themed minis, so this is a good start, and I really like the minis.

 

4. Greek Odyssey - I'm still on the fence. There's enough that I like that I may add it after all.

 

5. Dungeon Dweller/Fan Favorites - Some really cool minis, but not near enough to justify the set. Definitely some retail purchases.

 

6. Darkest Depths - Absolutely zero interest.

As for rating the expansions, Greek wins the top spot for me, then it's a toss up between Fan Favorites and Dark Depths with Brinewind and Dungeon Dwellers following closely after.   Chronoscope just barely made the buy cut off,  while Daymio didn't make it into my pledge plan, mostly because hubby could not see a use for most of them.

The great god Pan is dead.

 

According to the Ancient Romans the Roman God Pan did die around 2,000 thousand years ago. 

 

My personal opinion is the Ancient Greek Pan and his buddy Dionysus are as alive as they ever were, and I would love to have Reaper do statues/minis of them. 

 

I would welcome a Greek Odyssey 2 and 3 as the original Greek Odyssey expansion set is a good start.

Stole this from a friend's facebook post; it applies. Welcome to the never-ending saga.

Welcome to the Forum!

 

Definitely ONE OF US!

 

Me?  Bones V and Desert of the Dead and Antimatter Games KS will find their way to my home between 2020 and 2021.

I'm pretty sure I won't buy much more for a while since we're buying a house.

Of course when the mortgage is approved and our current home is sold, all bets are off!

 

Gimme the Pirate Ship!!!!

I was just looking at the Reaper Bones V Kickstarter (for about the 500th time in the last week alone) and got confused by something:

 

Some of the “New MSP Colors” in the Options section seem to already be available for sale on the Reaper website. 09137 (Blackened Brown) and 09188 (Ultramarine Blue) are two examples but I’m pretty sure there are more. 

 

What gives? I had planned on buying both of those “new” color sets through the Kickstarter but would I be better spending my money on something else if I can already get those colors now?

The first set of "new" colors includes at least one color that has previously been a limited edition color at conventions (Carnival Purple); I'm not sure about the rest. I think the second set is entirely existing colors.

 

As to whether you should buy through the Kickstarter? You can get them (the second set, anyway) now at full retail or you can wait until 2021 and get them at less than half retail. Since many of the colors in that set are in my regular rotation of most-used colors, I'd say pay retail and get them now, but that would depend on what else you have already.

A few previews from yesterday's Bones 5 Live episode:

 

The Fan Favorites Hellborn and Landsknecht 3d renders:

I love both the Hellborn Paladin and the landsknecht. Probably my favorite minis in this KS.

 

to borrow from @ksbsnowowl

 

1)  Dungeon Dwellers:  Not much here of interest for me that I dont already own. I wouldnt mind the plague docs though I ALREADY have in Metal. 

 

2)  Greek Odyssey:  @Rainbow Sculptor 's fauns may push me over the edge on this. But I have plenty of greek minis from a board game kickstarter. Mythic Battles.

 

3)  Dark Depths:  This is on my list. Love the Seadevils and merfolk. 

 

4)  Fan Favorites:  This has my 2 favorite minis in the KS, so is my #1 choice. Will buy extra landsknechts at retail.

 

5)  Brinewind:  Love this set, my #2. May try to get 2. Will get extra Doxies at retail.

 

6)  Daimyo: No interest. My group hasn't done any eastern adventures in 10+ years. Not enough characters for players.

 

7)  Chronoscope:  There are 2 minis (almost like Bones 4 chrono) that I want... but everything else is of no use to me. The trailer is interesting. Not sure if I will get at retail or not.

 

8)  Brinewind Extras:  Another great set. I am planning on getting 3. 

 

9) The Ship. Planning on getting 2. This will be my first lock in when the PM opens. Need 2 for ship battles. 

 

10+) the little encounters. I love most of them. Of them the vampire one is my favorite. Again @Rainbow Sculptor... i am getting 2 of that. I also like the ghoul encounter. Not getting the dwarf one or the spider one. Still considering the Yeti one.

Hopefully those don't come pre-assembled.. LOVE them, but I hate trying to paint details behind other things..

I agree. I used to rip apart preassembled Bones minis sometimes. It's not like it was hard to glue them back together. Bones Black minis, on the other hand...

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
