I think a lot has changed for the mini market since Bones 1.  I also think a lot of the progress we have seen in this market is due to Reaper.  It was only after they started making things bigger and better that the other miniature companies saw there was money in it.  Now it seems like there are many more miniature companies as well as people buying minis.  In short Reaper is definitely focusing on new blood this time around, but I am not sure that is a bad thing.  I just hope they don't forget to entice the people who have been collecting for a while and also continue to push the bar by making unique minis that are not being offered else ware.

 

Also if they put elfing dinos in the Greek Mythology expansion   :grr:

They need Ninjas though...

 

Maybe they are there but we can't see them.

So I'm guessing a different Goroloth from Bones 2 I hope!

The new one is based on a similar concept to that one, but the pose is quite different and I reinterpreted a lot of the features.  Tentacles are more true to the concept, eyes are different, it is armored like a spiny lobster, etc...  Other things are similar.  Same family, but a different species.

Is the new Goroloth bigger or smaller? 

 

Hard to say.  I gave them 2 versions, one for a 3" base and one for a 2" base.  I think they are planning on going with the 3" one, if so, the whole is about 5" long, but due to the more vertical pose, it fits on a 3" base.  I can't wait for you all to see it!

I hope they do both... I could use some smaller versions too.

If they were going to do that, I'd rather repose the smaller one so that they are not exactly the same.

I'm going to mirror other people's comments... DD is perfect if you're just starting out and want a collection of heroes and monsters. If I didn't back Bones IV I would likely be picking that up.

 

Right now, I'm in for:

  • the core (always an amazing value) ($120)
  • the paint set (again, value) ($18)
  • the dragonborn set ($10)
  • maybe one of the big dragons ($14)

So I'm already looking at $162. Reaper is very good at extracting money from me.

It also looks like a perfect gift for a starting GM.

 

I may add a second for just that purpose, though I don't know if we can hold on to it long enough for BD to run her first dungeon!

 

Grump put together a starter GM box of Bones for Sam, and Chris did the same thing for Becca. BD is MY turn! ::P:

I love the dinosaurs, but i would rather them not as part of the expansions, feels like they are taking space from something cool in the Daimyo Expansion and until i looked at it again after your comment i wasn't interested in it, but now its like its a cool expansion except for 6 minis that seem unusable.

How are dinosaur samurai any more unusable than hobgoblin or elemental or or undead or succubus samurai?

In the pre-launch thread (https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86871-pre-launch-bones-5-excitement-thread/), these guys are featured. Any guess if they're going to actually make it in or what they would be called?

Just a guess, but I'd say bronze Golems, possibly in a Greek set?

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Hello folks! AngerSmash will be launching in Kickstarter on September 15, 2021 and you may now follow the project with this pre-launch link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uncreatedspace/angersmash-a-game-making-fun-of-your-anger 
       
      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much! 
       
      (August 26) Original:
      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂 
       
      Gonna leave the Kickstarter project page link here as well as the Instagram link

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.
