Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

The DDS2 dragon in Bones Black would be epic though...  Sure would solve the drunken dragon kisses the ground or awkwardly hugs the castle issue!

I haven't had any such issues with mine... I wonder why.

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

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.

Mine developed a semi-prominent lean. Nothing that can't be easily fixed by pinning the tail down I'd suspect...

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 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!

      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
