Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

A late update from last week's Reaper Live.  Trenchworks is in the midst of 3D printing the Pirate Ship.  It was not yet completed, but they had some in-progress photos.

 

This is the fore and aft sections of the main deck (the middle parts weren't done printing), the aft section being what would be the cabin space underneath the poop decks, and the fore and aft sections of the middle deck (the hold) of the ship.  The bottom (the bilge) hadn't been printed at all, yet.  I think they are spaced out to show the full dimension of the ship, but cannot confirm.

FYI - That gray figure standing between the masts is one of the Reaper Bones Fire Giants, so you have an idea of scale with something you might already have in hand.

 

Additionally, that white dragon is the same one they had displayed on the table during the show, to help give a sense of the scale.

Did they ditch the seahorse rail supports, or is this a simplified test print? If those things are gone I might have to start reappraising my ship plans.

They didn't say. The 3D print should be ready to show off this week, so I'd guess they'll make a comment about it when they unveil the whole assembled ship?

Are updates being skipped for now (which would be understandable and fine) or am I being impatient? I'm mainly looking for a distraction but so far no little badge on my kickstarter app.

I just saw the new update in my email.  They seem to be coming out after business hours.

Big Burly Kitty may get his hands swapped to normal for other game use!

I tested the hand positions. If I can get my hands to look like that and my partner can't then they're proper twisted rakshasa hands :ph34r::devil:

While I like the rakshasa poses, I kinda wish it wasn't a beefy male. I'd have preferred a normal body size. Oh well, if anything I always have the Mahadi prepaint from the Avernus set.

I will just retwist the hands and use them as weretigers in my Nippon Project.

Please explain? It looked like the hands were bilaterally symmetrical (but with the thumb-analog-digit positioned outboard on both).

 

However! one of the arms had the wrist rotated but the other one was not rotated?

 

 

@Rainbow Sculptor  if you and @Reaper Ron decided to make the disassembly point where the forearm meets the bracer that would please both camps (Rakshasa / Tiger-man) the hands could be assembled either way.

 

Perhaps that would solve casting and mold-release issues if the hands* were separate pieces on a sprue. (*And by hands, I mean the hand-wrist-bracer as single piece/integrated unit.)

The current plan is to get him in a simple two piece mold so there wouldn't be any assembly required. However, the position of the bracers is not accidental and would allow for a pretty simple mod for those wanting to rotate the hands.

The right hand the palm is at the top of the forearm.  The left has the palm on the bottom of the forearm.  Both have the thumbs the mirror image of normal physiology.  One or the other is incorrect.  I took my opposite hand and used it to model the pose.  From that I determined that the palms were different but the thumbs were the same.  Nit picking I guess.

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
