Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/882850102

From about 0:50 there's talks about the EU and shipping part.

For me personally, as long as I don't have to pay VAT twice, I'm good.

Most about my questions and such was the big lack of information. This satisfies some part of it at least.

I hadn't thought to look in Reaper Live about this, I'd expected it in the Bones Live updates :)

We're in a ~700sqft apartment with limited shelving space. These Kickstarters are erm... space-crunching. Bones IV has been compacted (mixing up some of the boxes to fit more in one) and lives under the paint desk. Most figures live in boxes in the corner with the coffee maker in the kitchen area. Bones V is going to be challenging to store. I think I will be able to get it down the stairs (we're ground level, instead of Up).

 

Not even kidding, miniatures storage is why I upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. And I'm pretty sure at this point that the two pirate ships I got for us are going to get stored at my work's warehouse.

Thx, I rarely follow these.

So basically VAT would only be applied once, and that's exactly what I needed to hear.

I don't mind if it's going to be delayed, I have minis to paint.

It is unlikely we could find a place significantly larger than this in the area we are, at a reasonable cost. Might get a better configured apartment at some point - since this one is super old and has issues. Like... no electrical outlet in the bathroom. One of the kitchen cabinets used to be the ice box because the place was build before fridges were a thing. So the fridge is taking up space that wasn't typically planned for.

But apartment hunting during plague? Eh. I can wait a bit longer.

I’m really on the fence about what to do with the shadow dragon. 
 

1) paint him. (Meh)

2) ink him so that the translucence is still a major factor (better)

3) ink him and drill a micro LED light into him so that he’s translucent and emits a glow if I do choose (best)

I wonder if anyone has ever drybrushed with a wash before. The thought just occurred to me, and I'm curious about what the effect of such a translucent medium over a clear mini would be.

I've already assigned them colors

 

 

Im getting 4 of those and I intended to paint the shadow dragon a solid Black,  but then I caved and bought the dragon in the upper right as well.  

both have the horns I want for black.   Perhaps I need to stretch and try LCD like @Adrift plans. 

 

 

now I don't know. Black is the only huge/ chromatic I haven't painted - although I have the pathfinder painted as a large black. 

I still have 3 (only) unpainted reaper dragons,  and colors chosen for 2.  

more thought is required

I'm drybrushing him and inking him

Im aiming at #3 myself, was thinking I'd use some conductive paint to connect glowing LED eyes, then basically line it with either Reaper's Black Ink or Grey Liner(hiding the conductive paint strategically in the crevices). I want to leave most of the translucent plastic untouched except the lining so I can also put it on an LED base to light the whole thing from below.

Kind of, in that I've thinned a wash a little bit and then brushed it on in a haphazard manner to highlight certain areas of the mini. But just an FYI, from my experience the translucent minis need to be prepped a bit to receive ink/wash/glaze of any kind otherwise it doesn't perform the same way as it would applying it to an already painted surface. I use Tamiya Flat Clear XF-86 on translucent minis first and when it dries it looks no different than the original, but reacts more like a painted figure.

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
