Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

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'm kind of looking forward to it, but I suspect excitement will ramp up once we start getting tracker notifications and whatnot (or at least orders being picked and packed).

 

My biggest curiosity is just how small of a box they'll be able to stuff all my things into!

That's one of the downsides of Kickstarters for me, the long waiting period just kills my enthusiasm.

I'll be excited for my Bones 5 stuff when it arrives, but at the moment there's newer, shinier stuff that's got my attention.

Still following this closely, but it's a protection for myself to not get over excited, I'm expecting at least a few months delay. if it doesn't happen, then great! But June is what I'm aiming for to hopefully unpack the bigass box that's coming over to my house.

 

Also the fact that real life D&D is not "on the table" at this point (pun intended, obviously), kills some drive to paint. Still painting, but less and slower!

This, 100%. I haven't played my "regular" Pathfinder game for over a year, so a lot of the things that I might have been eager to do with my campaign and miniatures have just withered on the vine.

I still have 3 dnd groups that get together regularly, all different people.

 

Still painting like a fiend and not making enough time to post pics. I need to do that.

You're lucky. My gaming group was having a few attendance issues due to one player's emotional baggage even before 2020, and we last met right around Christmas 2019. Then our first few sessions in 2020 were cancelled due to her issues, and then COVID, and we've only seen each other as a group about 3 times since then. I don't know when we'll be resuming the campaign. I'm of half a mind to just start with a new campaign when we are able to resume, but they all want to just try and speed through the "boss levels" and get done with it instead.

I have been painting regularly, but really missing getting to use minis in my games. I bought a ton of models for the end a a significant part of my campaign, then Covid reared it’s nasty head again and we had to go back to playing virtually. It just isn’t the same.

I’m excited, just not much new to talk about at the moment (the bi-weekly updates have been sparse on new info, but that’s just the nature of the beast right now).

 

I've been unfortunate enough to be a “COVID Long-Hauler,” and have developed chronic fatigue syndrome, so my ability to do much of anything has been severely curtailed. Bones 5 will be a lifetime of painting fodder in my current state (won’t stop me from backing Bones 6, though). But, that’s why I’m setting up an airbrush (last piece, the compressor, is on order and in the mail). The paint jobs may end up simpler than I had originally imagined, but I’ll be able to at least get them on the table with some color. 
 

We paused live gaming last spring, and at points over the summer when some of us had been exposed (we actually never spread it amongst ourselves), but have been gaming in-person since August, as my preparedness and energy levels allowed. I did eventually come to terms with the fact I couldn’t handle running a high level game at the moment, so we had to put our long-running Curse of the Crimson Throne campaign on hiatus while I continue to recover; we had just started the final installment of the adventure path, too. <_<::(:
 

Started a new short-term campaign at first level, running The Sunless Citadel for now, as that’s about what I can handle at the moment. I’ve run it before, so there’s almost zero prep work required. 
 

Over the next two months or so, I’m hoping to get my airbrush up and running, and practice with it a fair bit with models I don’t much care about (Bonesylvania Chibi mini’s sent in my 2019 Christmas paints pistol case, etc.), so I’m ready to hit the ground running once Bones 5 arrives. 
 

Slow and steady, and a few good days, will win the race.

Whew, I gotta stop reading the KS comments. The utter helplessness of people being unable to make purchases correctly is mind boggling. It’s like people have never used the internet to purchase items before! I wouldn’t have what it takes to work Reaper’s customer service that’s for sure!

I stopped looking as soon as the kickstarter ended and I didn't need to post the stats. I learned after the first couple of kickstarters that it just is not worth it.

      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. 👀
