So I went back and checked the photo I posted from FB a couple weeks ago.

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89441-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/&do=findComment&comment=1961952

 

It turns out it's not a hat...but I'm not sure what it is... just a bump on the crate or a casting error?  

 

 

I'm guessing it's a wedge of support material, but that's the kind of thing I expect the caster to add, not the sculptor.

question for people. Each bones kickstarter was around summer/fall.  Skips a year, then ships the following year and the new kickstarter begins that following summer/fall.    does that mean we will still expect fullfillment next year and bones 6 campaign end of next year?

 

Maybe? Soon? Who knows? So much is up in the air this year.  I expect fulfillment more or less on time next year.  No idea on B6, I'm sure a lot depends on how 5 winds up and what things look like next year.

I need December to get here because Dungeon Dwellers is starting to draw my attention. For now at least it's easy to resist, but once I get back to work, well, I'm weak.

You’re in the wrong place if you’re looking for supportive strength

I absolutely realize that. I'm counting on folks here to be a bad influence. I expect suggestive strength is more forthcoming.

Well, since you asked for it :ph34r:

 

The minis are gorgeous, there's loads of them, they'll cost waaaay more in retail and speaking of retail......there's no guarantee that they'll even be available for sale to the general public a year after the kickstarter is delivered. I'm still waiting on the snake people from 4 to be released, after all.

Two words: Plague Doctors!

 

Also: Wolf Riders

 

And: Owl bear!  Yes, this should only be one word...

They had me at plague doctors, and worg-riders. Then they added a troll, ogre, succubus, and awesome dragon. 
 

Legit, this expansion is almost tailor-made to run the first two modules of the 3.0 adventure path (Sunless Citadel and Forge of Fury, both of which were updated to 5e in Tales from the Yawning Portal).

I like Dungeon Dwellers so much, I'm getting two of them! ::P:

 

That gives me:

A 10-figure unit of Orcs.

A 12-figure unit of Goblins.

A 12 figure unit of Kobolds.

A 4-figure troop of Warg riders.

A 4-figure squad of Plague Doctors.

 

Then, some monsters I'll keep as pairs, and others, along with the double PCs, I'll sell off to defray the cost.

If I didn't have the entire line already, I would have jumped on the Bones box of them. Last time at the Boneyward, I grabbed at least 2 each of the humanoid figures as they are cool sculpts + hey gotta have lots when using them as monsters!

 

It's a good line.

A 4-figure troop of Warg riders. (@$20 retail)

A 4-figure squad of Plague Doctors. (@14 retail)

 

So,  just for my own curiosity I added in an approximate retail value based on the current cost for similar figures (see above), and that give me around a  $94 retail cost for just those; then with the other monsters and PCs I'm getting and those I can sell off, I think it is a very good value.

I agree on all points!
