Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Just got the notification from UPS that my delivery date was moved to Tuesday.  Which really doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since they were 8 hours from here on Friday and should have been on a truck yesterday to the local depot.

But whatever UPS......

The prices definitely give us something to go on

It does. Until you start looking at metal dragons and limited edition resin dragons at the same time. Then it gets confusing, especially if the bones version is discontinued or not released yet. What Reaper truly needs is a dragon page. Which has a nice picture of all the dragons in size order. With a scrolling list of photos comparing 3 dragons closes to each others size.(Photo of Dragon A,B and C. Then a photo of Dragon C,D and E.)

I don't even have Dance of Death completed,

I haven't even started mine. I still have more than half the dragons from Bones 4 left to paint. Ahh. There were a lot of dragons in Bones 5. What am I to do!?

Wait, we're supposed to paint them??

 

I'm pretty sure I painted some stuff from Bones 1.  Likely Bones 2.  Maybe something from Bones 3 (which one had Khanjira? That's likely the last I painted...maybe).  I know I haven't painted anything from 4......

But I'm positive I've never completed a Bones dragon.  I have them all, but since I've only completed one dragon, and it was metal.....

I still have stuff from Bones I to paint :D I just keep finding new stuff I want to paint, and having adult ADD doesn't help, nor does buying a 3D printer... Ha! I have a list of around 30 dragons I want to print on my printer to add to this collection (you'll notice there is one hiding on the right that was printed that I need to paint as well). This is one of the big reasons when we move next year I want a room for my hobby stuff and want to build some custom shelves that take up the walls so that I have plenty of space to display stuff!

i gave up on mine =/ it's so bent and twisted, and no amount of boiling fixes it. Just no point, the dragons are so warped from their own weight that no amount of re-boiling fixes them, they just sag right back where they were

 

anyways, UPS says my boxes are in town, but delivery is still Monday. meanies

I had that happen too. Make sure you have all of the points where they come together are glued. Once I had a few points that weren't obvious glued together, it stayed in place FAR better. One of the hands on the bottom one goes on the leg of the top one, I think, and the top ones hand is meant to glue into place on the wing of the bottom one. I'll have to double check to make sure that's where I had to make the added glue joins, but I haven't had any sagging/warping since I connected those points.

i have, but it hasn't helped mine. The top one just bends so much, and it drags the bottom one with it

Wait...  You mean they've been shrunk...  They better not have done such to Nathavarr....  Whole reason I purchased them was specifically for additional copies of the dragon from DDS2, and that's how it was advertised... 

as far as I know nothing has changed size, they just scaled down the final bones production of the original 3d prints to fit a typical size of 3-4 inch bases  Nathhavarr shouldnt have changed size (i already have 2 so its not worth me getting another....)

i'd like to know too

 

how do they measure up against the picture of them from the KS with sir forescale, are they at least to scale with what we were shown?

 

the pictures i have from Reapercon 2019 show them being comfortable on 6-8 inch bases..  this is probably more than most people want but i really wish we had at least gotten a couple of them the size that would treat a giant like a toy.  Argent is large but its all wing.  the body is not much larger than a Garuth or any of the old metals, besides, it reminds me of a weird pegasus. These were nicely balanced wing to body and looked good at the immense sizes. 

 

again, I am not disappointed with what I have but I was hoping for dragons in at least the size of the old metal ones and bigger, rather than just another competition with Wizkids.

with some pieces, I have found that drilling the really bendy spots and inserting brass rod can help with positioning.  its a lot of work but you can even work the rod around corners and it really helps with the shape stability.

That's exactly what happened with my package. Thankfully it only delayed it a day.

I assembled everything apart from the wings on the dragons and only added the wings when everything was fully painted. Just checked on them and they're in the same position that they were a year and a half ago when I finished painting them.  Wondering if there was a bad mix of bonesium used in some of the dragons? 

 

Anyways, back to the current Kickstarter! Still no boxes or emails received here. I got really excited this morning when DPD came to the door with a massive box. Unfortunately it was an order from the big river site for our neighbors that weren't at home :down:

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.

Man, I'd love this! If you can't upload it, can you email me a copy? Joshinminn at gee mail.

GOD i hate reaper mobile. SO MUCH

 

i spent 10 minutes trying to reply to this quote and it never would type anything but the quote, so i had to go to my PC and boot it up just to respond. the mobile version really sucks now. I can't even put the quote at the TOP of my post, it won't let me.

 

anyways i guess i could try and finish it. probably should finish it, even if it's a quick job

 

but yea. these forums on mobile are horrible

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
