Bones 6 pre-hype discussion

* Wanders in eating popcorn and looks around.*

so probably not launching tomorrow then.

Lets see.  There should be 2+  prelaunch twitch shows to build hype.  

A lot of other KS - have a seven day count down, and probably not running at the same time as base boss... 


Is a Monday or Friday launch more likely ?  the first 48 hrs are really important, perhaps not as much for reaper, with their proven track record and fanbase. 

Im going to guess... Friday, March 18 as launch date.

 

*I have no memories of this place*  
you would never guess I have done the last 5 Kickstarters,

They've been mentioning March 24 as a start date.

I was just whinging about this - for some weird reason I thought the KS started today. 

 

Am I the only person who's been compulsively checking since Feb 28th? 

 

I'm so keen to see what's getting dropped first.

 

I was up at midnight to see if Reaper would open the Kickstarter at 12:01, then I realised that here in Aus we're ahead, just check then, still nothing. I've learnt my lesson from the last one - this time I'm going all in the first time, as hesitating just costs me more in the long run when I end up buying it all (or multiples) anyway...

 

That Bog Shambler looks awesome. 

 

I feel like it's going to be a long, long month waiting for the 24th. 

 

I've just pulled out my existing Reaper mins though, and my list of still coming 5.5 stuff, and have realised that an extra month may be a good little push to get painting. 

 

Turns out what I *really* need are more encounters - the more sweet terrain the better.

Correct place to whinge.

I wasn't expecting it to open today, but I do stop in for a moment a couple times a week just to see the previews.  I gotta say, I was hoping a bit to have an excuse to sit this one out and give my budget a break, but the previews are looking too tempting to stay away from, as usual.  Must... resist... "take my money" mode....

i've been trying to get excited. i'm probably in for very very little on this one.

 

i haven't painted in months, my bones 5 is still sitting mostly unpainted. just haven't felt that creative drive in ages. But i'll at least go in for the big dragons or other fun to paint monsters that'll be a lot more expensive at retail

@Sirithilielhey man, i know it's easy to lose the spark.  If you want to pick any bones 5 to do and have a partner for it, count me in.  I'll happily do a paint along with you to get your spirit back.

Nope, you aren't the only one checking.  🙂  If you want to just get an email when it opens and not have to check you can put your email in the page below.

Not a whole lot of Bones 6 model previews tonight. 
 

The out-of-focus minis in the background here are a Bones 6 tease. Looks like soldiers or guards?

On second thought, it might be an army of undead…

Here’s another prospective stretch goal graphic. The dollar value is just a placeholder.

Zoomed in a touch to try and make the text legible.

These ‘badges’ are emblems for the various parts of the KS. The center one is for the Core Set. Five of the others are expansions, and one (probably the scales and coins) is for add-ons.

Looks like those begging for an Egyptian expansion may get their wish. The bottom left emblem is a scarab in a cartouche-like background. The unicorn with the insect wings is from an old Reaper magazine/catalog from the early/mid-90’s, and I’m guessing that will be indicative of the Faerie expansion they’ve been hinting at. 
 

It was mentioned that the massive 30th anniversary dragon (the Tyrannosaurus-looking one) will have a companion piece that goes with it. That spawned cries of ‘Dragons DO Share’ from the comments. I’d love it if he came with terrain, but Reaper didn’t actually say that. 
 

Ed said they would reveal the initial 30 mini's of the Core Set next week. 
 

Lastly, there was a new Bones 6 ‘title card’ animatic shown. Here is one frame of it.

My guesses for the epansion are

Fey (unicorn)

Demon

Generic type fantasy monsters

Desert/Egyptian (scarab)

Undead (Raven w/bone, probably where the mausoleum will be)

And the scales are the add ons

I 100% agree with Goddestio. We know they have some sort of wandering monsters thing planned- which works well for the demon. And the scales for the add on matches with what Ron said. I suppose the other question is what else they might either have planned, or be open to planning? Bones 5 had 7 expansions, including the fan favourites. I would personally be happier with slightly fewer expansions and more encounters- especially with the expansion notably missing as Chronoscope.

One more look at this graphic. My tablet seemed to take a better screenshot than my phone did.

Looks like resculpts from their Warlord range.  I think this will be the third version of King Axehelm in Bones now!

Hey peeps, I'm going to lock this thread and direct you over to this one: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/97887-reaper-bones-6-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread-unlocks-3122/

 

I think it's confusing to have two topics open for the same subject. Please feel free to continue on any conversations from here over to there. I'm not going to move any posts at this time because it makes the timeline confusing. (And also I am absolutely terrible at moving posts and am more likely to just accidentally delete them altogether. 😛)
