Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

The Friday Reaperland show did a better job of showing the ship length.  The yellow tape to yellow tape length is including the bowsprit.  They then set the figurehead in the appropriate position relative to the bowsprit tip and the stern.



Oh. That's shorter. I don't want it anymore.

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

Those figureheads make great busts/large minis on their own..

There was discussion on Reaper Live about that same thing - many were asking about bust options for them.  Ron and Ed seemed receptive to the idea.

I am pretty sure we are getting two of the ship.


Maybe three.


Ghost, Pirate, and Hero.


Tempted to get a bunch of WizKids ballista, but cannon is more fitting for most pirate games.


Maybe get two larger cannons, chase guns, with chests of chain shot.

I will get one, I don't like duplicates.


Pretty much the same here, although I suspect the other part of said equation is where would I put a second one?  That's a rather large boat to have in one's living room, to say the least.

As gorgeous as the ship is, I just cannot justify the space it would soak up. Sadly...


I’m on the same page as you.  The amount of storage space it requires (and the amount of time it would take me to assemble and paint it) vs the number of times I’d actually use it in a game, just don’t  justify the purchase to me.  I have a sailing ship already that’s about 15” and that has served me well enough so far for any pirate ship needs I’ve had.  
I love it though, and if I get some windfall of money I still would consider it;  as it is a once in a lifetime bargain at the KS price.

With the idea to mount them forward, near the anchors...?  (I am a little surprised it has no chase guns as designed.)

I'll consider magnetizing the figureheads so I can swap them around. I'd also contemplate adapting the dragon bust for it, if it's the right size.


On cannons: Pillars of Eternity 2 has these flame-thrower cannons with dragon heads on them, would love to see something like that.

I'm getting 1 ship. I bought it with my initial pledge. I figured even at the KS price, I'd better use what I already have in there for it. It'll be a nice to compare it & the Falling Star Unpainted I got last month.


(Dang, I'm gonna need allot of "wood" colors............)

If I get one (likely, but not certain... Its so big) it will only be one, and I'll find every excuse to use it in every game...


"This game will be a pirate themed game, and this will be your ship."


"We begin the game in a tavern. It's a dockside tavern, built in the hulk of an old sailing ship."


"As you ride across the desert, you see a sand ship approaching in the distance."


"When you reach the top of the mountain, you find what appears to be a shipwreck. You have no idea why it might be there, but you suspect that 'a wizard done it'."

      I leave this here:


      Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.

      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!
      NSFW link:
      "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.

      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.
