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.

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.

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.

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...

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One  
       
      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      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!

      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:
