Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I just realized that figure 811 in the Chronoscope Expansion was Frank Buck (80033). I'm partially annoyed because I recently bought the figure in regular Bonesium and excited because the figure will be much better in Bones black. I'd like to see so many of the early Bones figures redone in black. Maybe in Bones 6 they'll have a throwback expansion of figures that came out a little lumpy and bland back in the early days of Bonesium upgraded to sharp new Bones black.

Interesting...  I thought Reaper had said somewhere along the line that they weren't going to be redoing any Bones figures in Bones Black due to the cost of having to make a whole new mold.

I thought it was that they weren't going to redo everything, but might hit select pieces.

Ah, ok. Thanks for the clarification.

I'm not saying that's the case, but I noticed Frank Buck, and I also remember some fuss being made about one of the barbarians that is very similar to another released model.

 

So it could just be that I'm putting pieces of a puzzle together and trying to figure out what's actually there...Not always the best idea as the results can be inconsistent with reality....

Anyone else looking at that pic of Sir Forscale and the doxies and hearing the dialog from Monty Python's Castle Anthrax scene?

Apparently a lot of pictures have been added to the Pledge Manager.  Not pictures of everything, but a lot have been, especially on the expansions.

 

Only one little preview shown on Reaper Live tonight.  Ron had the Shoggoth mini from Chronoscope on his desk, and held it up for the camera.  I tried to get some shots of it, but he wasn't holding it very still.

Ron did note that Shoggoth is going to be molded in smokey translucent grey, while its base will be opaque.  That could be an interesting look when painted, IMO.

 

They are going to put in their "final orders" later this month, so getting your orders finalized in the next week or two will really help with fulfillment (you can still order until December 1st, but it will help Reaper a bunch the earlier people finalize their pledges).

 

As an example of some of the PU pictures in the pledge manager, they added shots of the Sirens.  Ron noted the entire model will be molded in translucent aqua plastic.

They also mentioned that Baba Yaga's Hut and the Tree of Despair are going to be ready to ship starting in September, hopefully.  Didn't give exact dates.  No other large models until 2021.

      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
