Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Choices, choices...   

When I get off the bus after work today...  

 

Should I foot it up the hill (1.6Km) all the way home to get my car, drive down to the store where the local 'Postoffice in a store' is, or should I just go in there and pick up a nearly 6Kg package and lug it all the way uphill?

I would definitely get the car. 😉

I grabbed an IKEA shoppingbag from my emergency stash at the office(I work in IT, those bags are just so useful) and hurried to reach the 15:15 bus home...   

Of course I couldn't wait, so rushed the store(picked up a pair of 300gram pizzas at the same time) and picked up my Bones crate. Now I'm just waiting for my dinner to heat(made potato dumplings a few days ago, with more potatoes, sausages and bacon on the side. Tastes even better reheated... ) and then it's time to open the box!

So far my only problem is two Sea Giants but no Eye Tyrant in the Darkest Depths expansion, and I'm mostly through. My boat should have arrived today but they didn't ring and just took it to the post office instead, where we'll be able to pick it up tomorrow. Bit annoying since I'll have to hurl it up the hill, but at least they delivered the heavier package.

So going through the final non box stuff in my inventory & I must say,  I'm disappointed with the Full Moon Fever set. The sculpts are awesome but the "large" figure is really a extra-medium sized mini. I'm not a fan of the base it's on, hopefully I can pry/cut it off. Stick it on a medium size base.

 

Speaking of box sets, when I opened Dark Depths to maybe add some to my Rcon games, I came across the sea giant (why I listed him before) & the Eye of the Dee....error Tyrant. Mine fits like a glove. The parts lines just dissappear. Must be one of those figures that is good for some & bad for others.

 

I'll do the box sets later today (minus the Core) but must hobby for Rcon first!

 

Well ok after lunch first.::P:

Just finished checking the loot... 

(Wrote numbers on all the little baggies, and on the underside of the Broccoli on many of the minis without bags... ) 

 

Why the Elf! did Reaper use Magic to pack these sets?   

It's Orked impossible to fit everything back into the Core box!

 

The only reason everything else fit back into the shipping box is that I removed the two paint sets...   

 

BTW: That is a 'Dreadmere Archer'...

Does anyone know a model number or name for this mini in the core set? I couldn’t find it in the figure finder.

 

thanks!

The name is Amiryth Elmlighter I believe. It’s also in the Learn to Paint Kit.

I think she is a new sculpt for the Kickstarter or at least she was made available as a freebie/giveaway figure that never made it to retail. (showing off Bones Black I think at the time.)

On the discord I hear things about the Dance of Death, Dragon Turtle, Skeletaon Dragon and more special big mini's that are going to be added to the 5.5 pledge manager.

More details are in the most recent Reaper Live, I haven't had time to see it myself, but there should be some more info on there.

Glad to hear. Now just give me those weapon sprues from Bones 3 :ph34r:

 

Got my pirate ship today. Had a mild shock bc the post office lady wanted more fees than I paid for the ship, but they just halved the total declared value and put it on each package. All is fine, I'm ending up at 22% of my order. 

Can't complain about this at all, my main package got into customs on a saturday and out the same day (I didn't even know they worked on saturdays) and the ship was in 5 days.

Crossing my fingers for Mossbeard and Blacksting as well

Yup. Ron talked briefly about adding things "when he gets time".  Not this week, *maybe* next week (but seeing how close we are to the con, I'm not holding my breath).

Ooook a little update for the fellow EU mates (if someone is interested in it 😛 ).
Past yesterday I've received my package. Again Wave1, 450€ pledge (so in the middle).
Miracle number 1: I had to pay... nothing 😶.
Miracle number 2: Nothing is missing (thanks, @kit )
Miracle number 3: I've managed to dry-fit the big monsters/dragons etc. and everything fits like a glove.
Sooo yes! I'm quite happy 😅

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

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      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. 👀
