Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

(edited to remove original message) 

 

Argh, I thought I was in a different thread. This new mobile interface can be confusing like that at times.

On topic, I've been enjoying putting together my couple of items.  Kind of wish I had ordered more of the Dragon Busts, but oh well.

That was my thought as well. Speaking of thoughts, since they are doing a PM 5.5 and the molds are already done, I think they should add things like DDS2 and the weapon sprues:) I mean, isn't that the whole point of the Kickstarters? To make molds to sell models? If a lot of these things are turning into one shots, why are we doing them? If they don't want to stock them because of cost, why not set them up as a pre-order? They have the molds, right? What do you say @Reaper Ron and @Reaper_Jon?

 

This seems worth exploring. I need my DDS replaced!

 

Incredibly shocked to hear weapon sprues are already tossed over tho... 😕

I had my eye on a DDS for weeks at the (now defunct) LGS.  They had a holiday sale coming up, and I figured I'd come in early and snag it then.  Someone beat me to it.  I haven't seen another since.

 

But now that I know that there's some at Jasper's....

 

Quick, Jasper!  Before the dianoga gets loose!

@bojesphobare there 11 dragons from this that you received? 

I'm just guessing here, but I believe @bojesphob pic has the big dragons from the Options list, the sea dragon from dark depths, the dragon from daimyo, and all of the dragons from the core set.

$72 of customs fees, $10 of brokerage fees. Blergh. Oh well. Delivery estimate is still Monday. Sure hope they stick to Monday!

 

Got a email today saying I'm rescheduled for Monday (vs Tues) as well.

Thank you for the comparison shot. 

 

Reaper really needs a good seize comparison shot for the dragons, it is so hard to tell on the webstore and in the kickstarter.

Absolutely agree. I'm probably not the only one who struggles using the triangles and the block to properly tell me how big something is. The prices definitely give us something to go on (e.g. Kyphrixis at 20 bucks, Blightfang at 30 and T'raukzul at 50, that tells me something about their relative size.)

 

Ideally, I'd like to end up with a bunch of dragons of different sizes. A set of new chromatic wyrmlings might be cool to have, though I understand also that young dragons aren't quite as impressive.

That's correct. So, 12 if you count the Sea Dragon as a dragon. One of the smaller dragons along with the Zombie dragon from Bones IV are hiding next to the giant Joan of Arc dragon on the left (only place with room for them LOL).

No problem! I thought it would be fun to get a picture of them all together. Although, now I feel bad that I don't have enough time to paint at the moment, as all of those unpainted dragons makes me sad :( Heck, I don't even have Dance of Death completed, those are just base colors on that one.

I have put together a pdf of the Bones 5 images to use for inventory purposes on mobile devices. Tablets, phones, etc. Can that be directly uploaded here or linked via google drive or mega? I would like to share this with fellow Reapermaniacs, but I am unsure of protocol.

      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. 👀
