Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I've largely stopped buying 32mm minis that are not specific to the pathfinder campaign I'm running, so any content for Bones 6 other than dragons would really have to wow me

I support the bones kickstarters as much because its a way for me to support a favored vendor and company I wish that more companies would emulate.  The bones themselves are inexpensive enough that I can afford to give away even some large ones if I think it will bring some people into the hobby.  So if bones 6 comes out I will probably do the same I did with 5:  pick up the big pieces I really like and get the core set for the deal that will mainly become giveaways and quick tabletop PCs

Maybe when they do a Bones 6, they’ll do an add on which would include the previous Sophie’s re-done for Bones Black, including the biker one and then they could also throw in a pirate Sophie bust. That’d be a very popular add-on, I imagine. 

I'd get one.

I'm lucky/cursed that Reaper Ron seems to have almost exactly the same taste in minis as me. I'm pretty much done on this kickstarter and it's easier to list the stuff that I'm NOT getting :wacko: It's not good when you can think of a good in game use/paint scheme for every flipping unlock in the campaign! :lol:

I wish they would re-do the Bones 3 librarian sophie.. it didnt translate well into regular bones, and probably should be scaled up some

Yeah, I want a better version of her too.

 

As for Bones 6... well, that's a different topic.

 

Because I'm in such a dragon mood, I pulled out the Bones Temple Dragon. Such a lovely sculpt. Just makes me want the new dragons from Bones 5 even more!

I’m a little bummed: I thought the dragons were going to be gargantuan sized. But it looks like according to the descriptions on a couple of them they are on 3” bases, which would classify them as huge. Ah well, I got one of each and they still look great!

I skipped the core and tried to go light on bones 4. 

115 miniatures  (not to mention the boat) later ... I don't think my collection counts as very  light. 

with only 16 painted so far, and a few sold, traded , or given away. 

 

Spent a lot more on bones 5,  and im pretty sure ill take up the challenge of painting the entire core again. 

I have no idea what I would want from B6.

You can stick them on 4" bases and they would look right (they stick out a lot of the 3")
I will

Ron just announced in the Bones 5 Live twitch stream that the Bones 5 Pledge Manager will now close on December 1st, 2020.

BUT, help them out and close out your pledges early, so they can plan production amounts semi-correctly.

They were showing off a lot of the expansions in total.  These should all be resin masters in the pictures.

They showed off a picture of the Dark Depths expansion (it is missing the 2nd and 3rd shark fins, and possibly one other mini).

Note the demonic lasher is just dry-fit together, not glued, so don't fret over any gaps you may see here.

The bases are 3", but the dragons are vastly oversized for that 3" base.  They are easily Gargantuan compared to previous offerings by other companies.  I posed a photoshop comparison with the Huge Red Dragon figure from the Wrath of Ashardalon game a month or two ago.  Trust me, the dragons are bigger than Huge.

 

Here, I hunted down the pic again.  Both of these Red Dragons are on 3" bases, FYI.

And now they showed off Chronoscope.

Seems this pic is missing the tentacle Cthulhu monster that's part of the expansion.  Ah, yes, Ron just said the Shoggoth figure is missing from the picture.  These pics are generally the full sets, but there are a few missing things here and there that weren't finished/assembled.

Urrrrr, I’m really tempted to get a second fan favorites so that I can do two demonic lashers and give one to my brother as a surprise.

That earth Scion really has a Wayne Reynolds ‘feel’ to it. 
 

I’m probably gonna go and get the Deep Dwellers and the scions I skipped. :ph34r:

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
