Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

I still haven't added all that I want to. I've been less excited about this KS than earlier ones and yet my wish list is still in the hundreds of dollars. I'm starting to stare at the pics again and see if there's anything I want to trim from the list. I haven't bought any toys for about a year if you don't count another KS last summer that won't deliver for awhile and I'm starting to feel the itch to buy.

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 already have two of the ships paid for, and I originally thought I might use one as an ebay sale to help pay for the first one. Now, I don't know if I want to keep both of them and paint them both up! I could make one a living pirate ship, and the other an undead pirate ship :)

I think I will add the ship. I been wanting to paint some pirates and have a display area. I wonder if it will be possible to drill small holes for tiny magnets without compromising too much of the material.

Ideas:

 

  • Stranded ship which became a Town/building
  • Undead Version
  • Flying Version
  • Sunken Version
  • Pirate Version
  • Navy/Merchant version
  • Cut it all up for wreckage ( HERESY!!!)
  • Ship with wheels/legs
  • Ark of the Ages carried by monsters/ undead/slaves as a sort of mount for a supreme sorcerer/necromancer/liche lord/tomb queen?

I'd wager it'd be pretty easy, based on my experiences using magnets. The stiffer plastic used for the Mausoleum was really easy to drill through, and some small, neodymium  magnets would be pretty inconspicuous, overall.

Is the glow in the dark ship still on the table?

 

If it is, could the Reaper figurehead be glow in the dark too?

 

The wench doesn't work as well for a ghost ship.

We kind of want three.

Ghost, pirate, and naval.

That might work better with the Stygian Barge. ::):

From Reaper Live, it seems they are still looking into the glow in the dark. I would assume that the base figurehead that came with the clear ship would be clear as well, although having the option to have a clear/glow in the dark alternative option for the other figureheads would be helpful.

I LOVE that ship, but I don't know where the heck I'd put it that would keep it safe from the kids. :blink:

This was actually my first thought for this! I wanted to carve it up and turn it into terrain, but I think that would be an even bigger undertaking than assembling it the right way.

The new pictures of Kalanzar made me want to compare it to official D&D Huge Red Dragon miniatures.  Though I don't have the prepainted Huge Red Dragon from the Giants of Legend set, I do have the Wrath of Ashardalon game, which provided an unpainted copy made from the exact same mold.  Note that this D&D mini is from the old line of miniatures, which tended to have a larger scale than the more recent dragons (WizKids started making the D&D miniatures in 2014, and the scale nearly universally runs smaller than the older mini's, especially when it comes to the dragons.  So, Kalanzar will absolutely be usable as "Gargantuan" for D&D purposes.

 

I didn't hit the scaling exactly perfectly when I photoshopped these images together.  I was aiming for scaling the D&D image so that the 3" grid lines (at the appropriate depth) were scaled to match the base of Kalanzar (taking their word that it is exactly 3").  Unfortunately, I ended up almost exactly matching the red base of the D&D mini to Kalanzar's base; the D&D miniature's base is slightly undersized from the 3" it is supposed to be.  All that to say, the red plastic D&D mini should actually be a hair smaller in these composite images, and thus Kalanzar is actually larger than he "appears" to be.

      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.

      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.

      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!
