A blank version of the third map has been added to the campaign page:

Not sure where the lighthouse is meant to go... 🤔😛

How does this connect to the second map?  I dont see any ladders or stairs.

Hmmmm.... idk about the official intent, but it kinda looks to me like map 3 is underneath the bottom floor of map 2 with entrances as marked:

So... I know the Green Griffin is not for everyone, but I like it. Its definitely on my list. I hope we get an expansion to it like the brinewind extras, 

My wishlist for it would be

 

* Stools for the bar for patrons who wish to sit at the bar.

* More food choices for the tables. Bread, chicken, etc...

* female patrons, both standing and sitting. A female adventuring group at rest (no weapons in hand) or with drinks in hand

* A male serving wench

* A female Bartender

* A dog to lay in front of the fire place

* So rowdy patrons/Thugs startin' trouble

* Some bouncers and a cooler. The Bouncers are nice (until its time not to be nice... but they wont know when that is, the cooler will let them know.)

 

I'd be down for some of those on that wishlist. The Green Griffin is really the only thing that interests me in this thus far, I like having bar/tavern scenes in my adventures. But I'm on the fence as I'm not sure I want to wait 2 years for it when I can probably get something comparable from a 3d print vendor. It's quite a dilemma. It'll just be a $10 pledge for now until I make up my mind.

It's turning out so nice!  Finding myself down a rabbit hole trying to figure out how to paint "nmm" iridescence.  Can just picture this in beautiful blues, pinks, gold and white.

Would LOVE to see these.  Could be a good add-on in the style of the Lord and Lady of Hell, or the Elemental Scions from KS past.

With all the excitement over the Fey Expansion, I really hope we get some additional Add-Ons in that style.

Been thinking a lot about seeing repeated ideas this go around and it got me thinking.  Besides just improved quality of sculpting, material, casting etc, does Reaper eventually have to phase out molds?  I imagine they might get worn down after several castings.  But do they save the master to make a new mold?

I feel like we might be hitting a point in the Bones lifetime where more things are becoming permanently OOP and maybe that's why we're seeing a lot more repeats?


OMG yes! I was just about to suggest that and have been sifting through internet for decent ideas. Something like:

Get it. In the mean time you can get the other tavern set you want and use immediately. Have in your game the players get to know the bar/tavern you bought. Have it become familiar in all your campaigns to the point that they consider it a second home (for their murder hobos).  In 2 years when you receive this one, set up a Cobra Kai style rival bar open up across the street. Then you can uses both sets and have them have meaning. At $50 over 2 years... thats less then $2 a month. Just cut back that $2 on your gaming budget every month and it will have paid for itself.

Some Archfey or Queens similar to the Elemental Scions option would be a dream. There are lots of cool concepts out there, given how long Titania or just a Fey Queen in general has been part of literature/theater and one could merge the more "high fantasy" Fey with the "beautiful but unnerving/creepy" Fey of more traditional depictions. 

And it's just an opportunity to let creativity fly, both in the sculpting as well as the painting.

Eager to see the Dungeon and Egyptian themed sets be revealed. So far, most of the stuff [I’m] seeing feels like content that might have been left on the cutting room floor from the last couple campaigns. I'm confident Reaper has some more exciting things up their sleeves though.


Came across this comment on the KS, and it kinda sums up the whole kickstarter (generally) and the Core Set (specifically) for me. 
 

Why has Reaper abandoned the ‘wargame units’ and encounter sets that worked so well in Bones 5?  
 

Well, they haven’t completely abandoned the wargame unit approach, but they restructured them in a way that doesn’t work as well. In Bones 5 they had unit stretch goals for both Core and as Add-ons. And they put the generic (but useful) ones in Core, like the Elven Rangers and the Grave Kings, putting the more unique ones that would drive up pledges as Add-ons (Dragonfolk, Rune Wights).

 

Orcs are a dime a dozen. Nothing there to drive pledges.

I get that it is a pain to pick and pack dozens of little baggies per order rather than '1 core, 2 expansions and 3 add ons' but where they have put a group of monsters or soldiers together in the core it would be good to be able to buy them as an add on. Even if it was just 12 town guards, or the gnomes.

Probably part of it.  But they've also gotten better and a lot of those older figures are crap in comparison.   I recently painted a conversion made with one of the driders and the medusa from Bones 1, and man, Reaper's quality has come a long way since Bones 1. 

 

Comments like this almost make me want to go back and dig up all the glowing reviews from 2013 talking about how Bones quality was indistinguishable from metal once painted.

Yup.  Zombies, too.

You want to see creative, look up Lost Kingdom, Mori Elves.  Their asian inspired fey creatures are blowing Reaper out of the water:
