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.

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.

I missed all the twitch shows this week, but here's the pics of Ildraedis the Devourer and Kalanzar the Wicked that they put in Friday's KS update.

 

Ildraedis (the "White Dragon")

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.

Wow. I'm going to have to seriously rethink my plan to not get those dragons. They look great!

The ship still doesn't have a name, so I am going to suggest it goes with an acronym.

Really Cool Ship.

Hmm, what if that Ship is the biggest mimic you ever encountered?

      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.
