Base pledge is $120 this time (and you can pledge $1 just for add-ons). USA Wave 1 already gone.

Paints are a good deal, at 12 paints from a new line for $18.

Getting me some dragonfolk. Naturally.

Always fun to see what they end up showing off. I know the last day always tends to bring out especially crazy releases.

I'm guessing we say a samurai and greek themed expansion this time around judging by the themed things we saw at Reapercon.

KS crapping out again as always. I came in with 100+ slots left in Wave 2 and after 15 minutes of trying to get through the card processing I ended up in Wave 4.

Based on the beginnings of just day one? Maybe.

We don't seem to have as big of dragon in the base pledge like we did last time but I'm sure we'll have a nice selection of goodies by the time this thing finishes.

Plus they've already started in on the multipart expansions. That, I'd say, is currently a bit underwhelming.

Someone always says this.

You're comparing incomplete sets in a campaign less than 3 hours old to complete projects. Of course it will seem underwhelming.

I'm in for a core set but what's in it, as usual, doesn't really strike my fancy. Past 3 KSers I've just gone add-ons only and piecemeal things from the core set I actually do like.

I've always sold off whatever bits I wasn't interested. In every campaign so far I've ended up not only having my (rather large) pledge paid for but still come out with more money than I went in with.

Sometimes what I'm into at the time may not be what I want when it actually arrives. Other figures I'll do an about face on my feelings toward as well. It happens. Enjoy the ride!

I was kind of curious how the resale on these works, but I guess if you can sell between fulfillment and retail, the price will trend higher.

I'll be keeping an eye on buying some random expansions if I like the minis enough. I still don't like Bones for normal sized figures (the Bones Black stuff has been better but still not as good as metal).

I'll be more interested in a few bigger baddie minis for my dungeon crawl.

PS: Will more than likely try the Dungeon Dwellers pledge. They're the best line of Reaper minis,and while I'd prefer metal, they seem to be digital sculpts and would take far better to Bones Black (I hope).

Exactly, I wouldn't buy a pledge just expecting to make a profit but if you move fast you should get a decent enough price for unwanted items.

I think Bones are a bit harder to justify now since the Nolzurs just feel like they are so much higher quality. They don't cover everything, but I have been super satisfied with Nolzurs, while bones tend to be hit or miss.

Of course, bones is by far the best option for bulk inexpensive minis.

the new |bones black| material is quite different from the older rubbery white bones material, and far superior. much harder, better details and mould lines can for the most part be scraped off.
They are on record that most if not all the smaller minis are going to be made in bones black.

Yeah, I got a number of items in Bones black from their last Kickstarter, and while it is an improvement, I still find the figures to have softer details than I find enjoyable to paint.

Yes, you just pledge whatever you want and then the Pledge manager lets you specify what you are and are not going to get with that money. It also lets you add more money and Reaper tends to leave it open for a pretty long time. Of course money added after the KS has two key differences:
1) It all goes to Reaper (no KS taking a cut)
2) It won't unlock new stretch goals. So ideally you pledge for as much as you need/can afford during the campaign to help toward unlocking more. There is utterly no shame at all in putting down a £1 pledge and adding more in the manager later.

They've just added a Ballista for $6 to the options. This, plus the catapult for $6, is a definite buy from me. I am hoping they aren't too large, so I can fit them on a 50mm base easily for Kings of War, but regardless, they are a great buy.

I can see myself wanting multiples of those, the $14 Dragon Aganzarax (one of the nicest dragons of theirs I have seen), potentially the War Mammoth, and most likely the Dungeon Dweller add-on. I also will want the Elf Rangers from the core set, as well as multiples of the goblins from the Dungeon Dweller set.

I am really liking the offerings for this KS, though I will have to be mindful of the size of such things. When I got the Silver Dragon and Flying Roc from the last one, I didn't expect them to be as massive as they are. Still fantastic though.

Not sure but the Diamyo bundle really just seams to be monsters and randomly dinosaurs. Not really that happy with it.

Still kind of underwhelmed by this Bones KS but I went ahead and pledged $1 just to get access to the add-ons. There's at least one or two of those I'd like.

The dragons are nice,but I've already got a bunch of unpainted Bones Dragons (including that huge not-Tiama figure) so I'm not interested in any more right now. I'd normally be up for Japanese or dinosaur miniatures, but combines they loose their appeal for me. At this point definitely pick up that Catobelpas(sp?). Not sure what else, though.

Well, you’d probably have to buy the scarecrows together, but the price would be about the same as buying one at retail. The past campaigns broke up the core pledge into groups based on their section title, so “Scarecrows” would be one option and “Dragon Wolf” would be another.

I was only briefly able to tune into Reaper Live yesterday, but it seemed like they were hinting at a Cthulhu themed add-on expansion coming up. That would make me pretty happy. The samurai dinosaurs look decent enough but don't really do it for me. Some more Lovecratfian minis (like the thing in the well they already have) would be more up my alley.

Nothing wrong with waiting to see if they have what you want. I've been in Bones I-IV, and am also waiting. Reaper had an sf expansion set in previous KS, so keep watching. Myself, I'm looking for Gloomhaven proxies, particularly demons and uniques. 28 days to go!

Just note that the whole waves thing doesn't really work with Reaper, its more of a KS general policy setup.

Reaper does the whole fulfilment in one big go, staggering it by region and their plan is to try and do it so that people get their stuff around the same time. So that means they do Australia first and then whilst that stuff is on ship/plane they then get to other regions like the UK/EU and last USA (since their site is in the USA so that only has to go by domestic shipping). The waves help them sort things out at the back end, but otherwise once they start shipping a region it all comes out in one go. So generally you're talking a few weeks difference between waves which is simply the volume of orders being processed rather than any staggered wave release.

On the first day when the site was crashing and stalling due to the volume of use they actually said in their twitch that entering into later waves was a good way to get in without the site stalling (since no one was going for latter waves and everyone was going for the current lowest wave).


[KS] Reaper Bones V @ 2019/10/05 18:08:11


Post by: ced1106


Also, Reaper may do some jiggering if a few specific add-ons are late. Frex, for Bones IV, the chicken hut was one of the late items, so they pulled these orders aside while fulfilling others. I forgot how this affected international shipments. Also, for the US, at least, they were doing one wave per day.

Still waiting...

I think I'm out, this time... Melty, blobby faces on human-sized Bones in previous KS just aren't as good as the detail in CMON releases, and CMON gets me a game too. Plus, pretty much nothing here says "buy me now". Not for $120. Not compared to Nolzur's.

Preview of the possibly upcoming Greek set add-on, but I already have Mythic Battles KS set (when are they gonna send me my free stat clips???



Reaper also posted some preview pics in their update (still no sign of sf) but this is the only important one.

The dragons and hydra look good. Also excited by the warmachines, Kings of war armies will be littered with those in years to come.

Hoping the core set is available piece meal in the pledge manager, I like the zombie giant but don't want the rest.

The core set will absolutely be available a la carte in the pledge manager, probably even before the campaign ends. They've always done that in the past.

There's actually been quite a bit of stuff previewed for this upcoming Greek expansion back at Reapercon.

Minotaurs, Cyclops, heroes and Giants (who could double as the Gods themselves) I can remember seeing photos of. Went ahead and posted them here for those not in the mood to search.

Taken from Reaper's forums where members posted a lot more photos of possible sneak peaks-

Oh wow! Some nice stuff there for the Greek myth expansion. Not sure that I need a GIANT Zeus, but still quite badass. This maybe my favorite bones KS yet! Fingers crossed that some new mini-taurs (as in the Bones 4 kind) make it in as well!

Man that Zeus/Storm Giant

Still sticking out of this one, just got my household effects from Delhi and yeah, 15 years of "sure why not I might paint it someday" adds up.

But still, maybe when it hits retail.

I would be sorely tempted by a handful of that Greek stuff, but...in reality I'd only want a handful of minis...so I'd probably end up waiting till retail regardless of the discount.

Don't forget we've got an underwater expansion coming at some point too.

Have their been any rumblings of what super gigantic models we may see this time? The last one had a ton. Earlier ones had the Tiamat model, the Dragons Don't Share diorama set, Khanjira or whatever the kaiju is called...

I keep thinking we'll see some more "Encounter" add ons like the troll and goats set. It's specifically labeled that. No other add on is.

Maybe a large Poseidon figure to match Zeus.

A Poseidon would be nice.

Would it be able to top the one from Mythic Battles though?


I'd have to give them credit if they went this route-

I kind of doubt they’d hold it back, considering it’s already sculpted AND printed.

I do find it a bit odd that there’s at least 3 items to unlock between the first parts of the Greek expansion. I seem to recall, in past KS, there only being 1, maybe 2 things to unlock, between the parts. But in Bones V, they seem to be loading stuff up between the expansion parts. Really excited to see what else will be in the Greek one, at least a minotaur, and some Greek heroes I think.

Also, they’ve been doing live-streams almost every day, and they keep mentioning that Thursday's Will be a BIG deal.

Ok... So now they're going to start the deep sea expansion, before finishing the greek one?

It *is* odd, or at least different, how they're unlocking things. Thursday is some sort of announcement, and there's a social media goal that day as well.

For the metalheads, here's their available Slithe miniatures. I guess this might give an idea how they'll look in plastic? : https://www.reapermini.com/search/SLITHE

Bones IV had some underwater nasties (ZOMBIE SHARK), so I may pass, but if you saw the preview pics...

It's called DeepWars by AntiMatter Games - give it a shot, it's a lot of fun!

I'll be picking up this model to use as terrain there, for certain!

I'll second the call for people to check out Deep Wars. Not only is it entirely underwater, but its sister game ShadowSea deals with all the ground based above water combat. A lot of models have crossover use from both games and that boat can certainly be used in both (as their core rules are both based on Song of Blades & Heroes). Plenty of rules for boarding and breaching vessels...

There's new two player starter sets with everything you need and a dungeon crawling supplement will be getting released in the near future.

Deepwars/shadow seas is about to have another kickstarter with 3d printing files for a lot of what you need too. And they should have out a fairly cheap dungeon crawl game out soon you can use all the bones minis with.

I literally thought that company was “Dead in the water” when Miniaturemarket stopped carrying them and hadn’t seen any news about it. I’ll check out the link as making an ocean themed table is intriguing.

I wouldn't put a lot of weight behind what MM carries. It's not the first time they've stocked and dumped a smaller line.

Antimatter has been doing regular kickstarters and putting out a fair bit of material every time. Their submersibles were quite nice, big, chunky modeling projects.
That deep sea expansion is a great reason to finally finish off my Fortune Hunters submarine!

Makes me want to play a tabletop deep sea exploration game like the old Treasures of the Deep PS1 game.

Deepwars is what you want. This terrain, and the underwater figures that they have here work to put together a excellent table. The $ 10.00 spent down at your local Pet store in the fish section works wonders! That ship alone would be a great centerpiece deep wreck for crews to explore and fight around. Add in a couple of caves, and some plants and gravel, and you have yourself a hazardous lost location.

To join the chorus, yes, Deep Wars and Shadow Sea are fantastic. The miniatures are ridiculously flavorful and easy to build/paint. Looking forward to getting the minis from the last KS, but since I tend towards ordering everything they make it takes a while...

I may need to look closer at that ship.

The internet goddess LOL-th?

I have been painting a lot of the Bones Black minis that came with Bones IV - and good gravy, does the material make a difference!

More rigid, easier to prime, faces and hands that look like faces and hands!

A massive improvement!

The one thing it gives up is the nigh indestructible nature of the old Bones - which means that my old flexible Bones will remain in use for my games for younger players.

A lot of the Core for Bones V will also be in Bones Black, which is a good thing.

The Auld Grump - I am really wishing I had gotten another Dreadmere set while the Pledge manager for Bones IV was still active.... I painted the last of them last night.
