Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

So i watched that Reaper live commentary and they showed the trailer it was getting loaded on to. Then someone made a joke about tracking that number shown in the photo by looking it up.  

 

Did anyone manage to do this? 

 

I mean, it's as simple as just putting the numbers into a cargo tracking site: https://parcelsapp.com/en/tracking/EISU9334729

@Guyra i had tried entering the info a few places, but came up with nothing.  I would not make for a very good man of mystery.   

 

Guess who just put that on their favorites.  This guy!

 

March 14th, eh? The secret is out! 

 

Thanks,  Guyra.

My haul wound up being fairly simple, but that's good because if it's shipped UPS like last time my driver will be happy about it being small and light...  And if it's USPS/CanadaPost it will be easy to handle on the twenty minute walk home... 

 

Two of the dragon from DDS2, 

Two Dragon Busts, 

And the new paints. 

 

Seriously, that's all that's in my order.  Part of it though is so many other things demanded my funds, and there was also the desire to simply focus on stuff I could get within two weeks when I did have money. ^_^

My selection was fairly reasonable.  I spent too much and I got what l wanted.  It was fun... Soooo many dragons!  I wound up getting most of the big pieces and the core set.  I haven't gotten duplicates in any of the previous kickstarters and saw no reason to start now.

 

So if Reaper could just back a truck up to my house and bury me in little plastic figurines, that would be appreciated ::D:

Just checked the container shipment.  Only shows 3 days of transit with an ETA of March 23rd.  So close... 

 

It is only showing for that one container that we had numbers on.  The others in sure are on the way or making port soon.

I haven't known what to post here without being repetitive.

I've recently been painting and ordering minis for Rangers of Shadow deep and already have some Bones 5 things reserved for that use.  Plus a few items that I decided to wait for Bones 5 before painting.  Like the B4 wraiths so I can paint them to match the wraith lord and riders.

Buy them again, paint them again!

 

The fun never stops!  Especially since the regular wraith release is green translucent, and the B4 versions were opaque.

 

Which makes me wonder...Was it ever said if Murkillor and the riders would be opaque or translucent?

It's interesting... I'm actually not super enthusiastic about Bones 5 (or 6 for that matter) at the moment. Which is weird, cause I'm still looking forward to a lot of the minis, but... Maybe after we move, and have a slightly bigger space? Just feeling really cramped right now.

I have so many things that need painted that it's not much of a problem to decide to wait on some of them.  There's plenty to work on in the mean time.

I forgot that they were opaque in B4.  I missed them during the KS and picked them up from retail.  Though I will likely paint them solid anyways.  Haven't quite figure out how to paint with translucents to my liking and have more confidence with just painting over them.

@MoonglowMinisI got some advice that I cannot believe how helpful it was from @DragonWyrm.  He told me to use a matte varnish on the translucent areas first.  This help the regular paint bond when painting over it, otherwise it'll just slip off.  IF you prime it, it'll obviously just cover the work.  I did a post where I made a Green Slaad and made an acid ball in green/yellow and kept the translucent.  Now, granted it was my FIRST TIMEdoing one like this, but that advice was the coolest tip I'd had in a while. Worked like a charm!  Big kudos to @DragonWyrmfor the tip.  

 

 

If you're considering the translucent - Vallejo Matte Varnish is what I'd recommend.  It's awesome!

Something else worth noting is I used an ink on the acid ball with a sunlight yellow paint and white to highlight.  I think the ink's transparency helps while maintaining the color.  You could probably get away with a wash or really, really light glaze to keep the transparency.

I find that a matte or gloss varnish and then ink washes can help pick out details. Also, highlighting with a lighter shade can be good, too. Paint the opaque areas like normal. Here's some examples:

Like some on here, I'm looking forward to getting my "poop" load of minis but these days I'm more interested in getting stuff I need for games.

      Saw this on on my recommendations & thought it might have some value amongst our hobby.

      This is the Bones 5 Information Thread.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for information and questions.  
      This thread will be moderated to ensure forum rules are followed.  
      Posts of chatter and enthusiasm will be relocated to the Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89441-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/
       
      Please find the project on Kickstarter.com here:
