Gutted to have missed the Kickstarter. Is there anyone in UK (particularly Cambs/East Anglia/London) with a group pledge or a pledge I can get in on?



Welcome to the forum!

No worries, as Reaper lets folks still get in on the Kickstarter as a late backer. The prices will be slightly higher, but still way below retail. 
Just go to the main Kickstarter page and look for the blue “Late Backers Can Join Here” link near the top of the page!

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.

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.

I grabbed the plague doctors and the goblins last year. Still getting the whole set, because it's SUCH A GREAT SET. Seriously perfect for anyone who needs a starter D&D set of minis. Plus I love the lower fantasy style of them all. The only thing missing is another skeleton or two, and maybe a couple of zombies, but those are easily acquired in the bones line already.

@Griff Glowen as others have said, you can still Late Back this kickstarter.  The prices are roughly 20% higher ($50 expansion sets are $60 for late backers), but it's still a deal compared to what they will be at retail, and you'll get them 1+ years earlier.  I don't know if Reaper is going to keep the late backer thing open up until the PM closes on December 1st.  I would actually be surprised if they did; they're turning in their "final" numbers to the factory right about now, so they won't be able to handle a large number of late backers after the end of September, I'd imagine.



Fan Favorites now has pictures in the Pledge Manager. There’ supposed to be a Bones 5 Live update show starting in a half hour or so, and I think there will be a KS update going out today as well. (There wasn’t one last week because of ReaperCon).

LOTS of photos in today's Bones 5 Live update.  Also, BONES 6 IS OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED.


Also, because this week's update was delayed from last week (due to ReaperCon), and because October has 5 Fridays in it, for the remainder of September and October, the updates will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month.  Then it will go back to 1st and 3rd Fridays in November.


A lot of what they showed today was terrain and terrain-related bits.  Often not all the pieces of whatever set are included in the pictures; they were focusing largely on the terrain.


Just because the shot showed the scale of the ship somewhat well, here is a shot of the Pirate Ship 3D print in Ron's office.



Next they showed several pictures of the Encounters and Gallowgard castle gate terrain.



The figure is Sir Rictus from Dungeon Dwellers.


The Dragon Slayers power-up.  This is a "first shots" picture (pictures of the actual final mini's after they came out of the mold).

These models are all in Bones Black.



A 3D print picture of the bridge from the Bridge Troll's Toll encounter.  They again confirmed that the cobblestones of the bridge had been "fixed" to be a uniform design.  Ron stated the bridge is 6" or 7" long.



Yog Sothoth.  Ron mentioned he's not that "weighty," and was designed as such (I think due to him being designed with a lot of negative space in and around his bits [deep open mouth, etc.], but that's just extrapolative conjecture on my part, based on Ron's statement).



The Spiders of Emrith Kul.



Shadows of Ravenhome.



The Sloop boat from the Brinewind Extras add-on, in size comparison with Sir Forscale and the rowboat from Bones 4's Dreadmere expansion.



Also, Ron held up some of the barrels from that same Brinewind Extras add-on.



The Mandupar Pass encounter, with the Yetis and altar.  Note from previous stream comments that the four items on the main ledge of the altar (the candle, bowl, skull, and yeti scalp) are all on a separate sprue together, so you can place them on the altar, or not.



Charnel Pit of the Ghoul Queen.

This guy may be on a 3" base?  Ron stated that, then backtracked, not wanting to confirm that size.  Its either a 2" or 3" base.

These are Japanese grave markers.

This pic is a bit out of focus.  Ron's phone couldn't decide where to focus, due to the depth of the sculpt.

I'm wondering if the Charnel Pit set would support a Goremaw, allowing a Lair of the White Worm movie adaptation. Tempted now as I still have a Goremaw to paint and I have this locked in.

I just got a Sir Forscale, and have a painted Goremaw. If I get a chance this weekend  I’ll break them out, take a pic, and do some photoshop wizardry to see how big the Charnel Pit is in comparison.

Two things. First, I hope that all that stuff in the boat is optional, otherwise it won't be terribly useful. Second, is that a body wrapped up behind the chest?


Ron said he just threw all the loose pieces that come with it into the boat so they would not get lost. And yes, that is a wrapped body.

So, small thing, but I'm not seeing the Chicken Swarm mini.  Can I  assume that's an oversight, and not an intentional omission for any reason that anyone has heard of? 


I'm still on the fence on this set, and that happens to be one of the minis that was in the "pro" column...

Good point on the chicken swarm! 


I love the Gallowgard set, but I fear the invisible upper part of the portcullis will drive me mad. Ditto the floating half-arch in Ravenhome.


On the other hand, the Charnel Pit is looking very tasty - you could paint a nice water or magic effect in there, and have pool or portal as an alternative to pit.

Does this help with the pit question above? At a glance to me it seems like he wont fit with the base.



Still hard to tell, but MIGHT fit without the base. I thought that being removs le would be necessary. Was going to see how doable that would be. If someone wants to do more photoshop magic for scale, that would still be appreciated. This mostly confirms my suspicions. Nice paintjob, btw.
