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.

Wave one suckers
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.

In previous campaigns they broke down the Core Set into smaller add-ons too, after there was enough stuff in it to make reasonable themed bundles.

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.

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.

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).

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...

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-

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

I LOVE that the second part of the Greek Expansion has not only the Cloud Giantess & Nemean Lion, but a LEUCROTTA as well! They are such crazy weird, and terrifying monsters, it's good to see more miniatures of them. The only other one I know of is an older D&D pre-paint figure, and it's not very elaborate. I love that Cerberus and the minotaur are next. I hope that means we'll get a HUGE Hades to accompany/oppose the Storm giant 'Zeus'. I'd love a nice (and HUGE) female Grecian titan to pose as Hera/Artemis/Athena.

It kinda sucks that the Greek II has only 7minis most of which are man-size. Hopefully III will make up for it. I'm really liking the Greek expansion, although I have absolutely no use for it. Not that that has stopped me in the past.

Remind me, I haven't actually bought anything since III, will the pledge manager allow for the cherry picking single models, or is it only the add one/core as they're presented? The last thing I bought was a big one and existed as an add on by itself, but this time I'm seeing a handful I'd like, but nothing to justify a big buy in.

I haven't followed the comments to know how V is going but with IV they allowed cherry picked of everything that wasn't in a theme set. So singles from the core pledge but if you want one thing from the Greek set you have to buy the whole set or wait for retail.

Actually in Bones IV the core set was split into themed bundles, not singles. Mostly the models that unlocked together had to be bought together.

Well the new Bones addon looks to be Undead Pirates, which makes it a must-buy for me. Was going to go for Dungeon Dwellers, but this is far more useful.

I can only imagine how I will fare when the Pirate Ship is released...

Ok, I'll have to paw through the PM once it's done and see how it shakes out. So far the Storm Giant is the only "I'm buying that and I'll figure out why later" item.

I'm kind of in the same boat. While I like some of the individual figures a lot, they are all in sets I'm not that interested in as a whole. I'm probably just going to pledge for the individual add ons I want, and wait for the pledge manager to see if I can get the other figures I want, without too many figures i know I'll never paint.

This is the first Bones KS I'm not pledging $200-300 out of the gate. It's just not wowing me like previous KS did.

Yeah, same for me -- there probably is stuff I want here but I really don't need another core set of "maybe I will need this someday" minis. Got two of those from previous Boneses!

I don't even need the undead giant because I have one from Zombicide Green Horde...

I’ve never done a Bones KS, and there’s so much going on it’s overwhelming.
I shall read the rest of this thread to glean info, but a few questions..

UK postage, any rough ideas? I will get to the PM which I think might have more info on it, is it based on how much ends in the box? (So if all I did was Core, is it set, or fluctuating?)

Then there are various things. Core Set. Add-Ons. 3 Expansions (Samueai, Greekish, something else).

Now to me how it looks is it is only Add-ONS you can buy individually. Everything else is the packaged price, 120, then 50 for any given expansion.
Are they still adding to core even today?
But expansions 1 & 2 are complete, and they are working through the second and third parts of 3 to unlock it all.
Or will items still get added to all the 50 dollar sets as time goes on?

This sum it up correctly? Minus the few gaps I’ve fielded questions about?
Thanks for any regular Bones Ks’ers who can help.

At the moment you can only get the full main pledge, and each add on,

however during the pledge manager period after the KS in previous reaper projects you've been able to get smaller sets of minis

cant help on shipping other than to say the early ones came from the USA so got hit by customs charges, but they've now got a UK based prescence so that my be different nowe

Ok well thTs useful none the less, hopefully someone else can weigh in and add to the info.

So now they are on the Underwater expansion, the others are finished now?
Or will they add to Greek still perhaps?
I think from my reading, yes Core Set is still getting things..
(And the backer number and social media exclusives etc)

Core set might well still expand. The factions which are already 3 parts won't expand while those at less parts will so theres 2 expansions for the 2 sea expansions 1 for the greek expansion but none for the samurai and dungeon expansions.

Second part of the Dark Depths looks great! Glad to see the Fathom Tyrant pop up already. Hopefully that'll mean there's something REALLY scary/cool in part 3. I love that there are lots more sea creatures added. Especially those Brine Goblins! They look great!

It looks from the pic that the pirate ship will be multi-deck, so you can lift off each deck to get to the one underneath.

This is absolutely what I want from pirate ship terrain BUT only if it isn't bendy, if each deck can be removed easily without stress or damage to the kit, and if it will also lock together reasonably well as needed. I guess Reaper can do that with the grey Bones terrain material they used in #3, and presumably #4? But can they do it at that scale?

I'd love to get this ship for terrain, but...

I mean you might *want* a bit of flex to avoid damage when you're disassembling it deck by deck, but if it's as flexible as the Dragons Don't Share terrain it will look like Salvador Dali's melting pirate ship.

The $1 Buy In ends tomorrow at 5PM CST, if they are not sold out before then.

The $1 Buy In allows folks to pledge a buck - but still get the Kickstarter prices on the Pledge Manager.

So, anyone that thinks that they might want that pirate ship, but doesn't have the $100 ready, now is your last chance to be able to get it for a buck now and $99 later.

Ditto for the add ons and expansions - my wife was kind of 'Meh' until one of their most recent reveals.

The model that caught her eye, and fired her enthusiasm, among all the giants, dragons, and undead?

The halfling doxie. (The tiny tart, the wee wench, the half-pint harlot, the teapot trollop... we had a bit of a competition going....)

Truer words have never been spoken.

Though I think I've only bought 2 core sets ever (I and II). With how long production is on these it can be hard to really know what you'll be into/can use in 18-20 months when they deliver but thankfully you can add stuff in the pledge manager generally up to the last 2-3 months of production.

Yep. The Steampunk Witch was miscast so didn't hit retail, iirc. I'm guessing these will be in Bones Black, so will have better detail.

Would have been nice to at least have a different version, unless they're just reusing previous molds. Or that these models had replaceable hands (ie. no weapon version).

Whatever. I'm interested in Steampunk / Western, and Modern / Horror. I guess part 3 will be sf. Hoping for no dino men!

Really bummed out that Brinewind expansion moved from being Undead Pirates to the regular kind as well. I guess it is kind of inevitable as Reaper stuff is made more for tabletop adventuring rather than army collecting. Looks like I will dump that expansion and go for something else.

Same. I pretty much want all of them but the Chronoscope and possibly Daimyo which is just too random for me with useful stuff and random D&D oddities (dino & orc samurai) that don't have enough things in either bones or other lines to be useful at any level. So it might just be a pick up things in a general release like I did with the Stone age one from last KSer.

There are a few things I might get via pledge piggybacking, or “pledgybacking”, but the campaign in general feels scattershot, trying to appeal to everyone at the expense of value for the more focused customers. Each expansion or subset of the core has one or two things I want, but not enough appealing minis in any of them to justify the purchase.

We got some really cool stuff towards the end. I'm worried if they'll be able to sort out an EU hub after Brexit but I left my $120 wave 4 pledge stand anyway. If a no-customs shipping solution is confirmed before the PM closes I'll probably triple the pledge.

Yep, scattershot.

As I understand it, Reaper gives their artists a fair amount of license, but, of course, this means they risk creating what *they* want, vs. something more marketable. I also think they appeal more to painters than gamers, compared to other companies.

At the same time, after Bones I-IV, I guess you're gonna run out of "staple" monsters and run into repeats or resort to edge-cases. I dropped to $1 when they offered the zombies in the core. (Have plenty thanks to CMON.) Gorgon yes. Catoblepa, no.

Most of the add-ons were thematic, although some were on the miss side.

I saw a good amount of new backers, and they're still getting a good deal with the core -- even if all they fight are kobolds (and two dragons).

Personally, I'm looking for Gloomhaven proxies, so that may have colored things. Although that didn't prevent me from picking up some halflings mounted on armored chickens!

Well, some neat stuff cropped up at the very end. Does anyone know if there are better pictures around anywhere? Some of those sets are so small and dark it is hard to see what you're getting.

Damn, was out and about and forgot to put in my $1 pledge. Anyone US open to letting me piggy back on their pledge? Interested in a lot of the terrain/dioramas. And a few odds and sods.

They should open a late pledge. Believe they have done that in the past with their other ksers.

We got some really cool stuff towards the end. I'm worried if they'll be able to sort out an EU hub after Brexit but I left my $120 wave 4 pledge stand anyway. If a no-customs shipping solution is confirmed before the PM closes I'll probably triple the pledge.


I wussed out and dropped from a $120 pledge to a $1 pledge quite early on and never upped it. If we get a no-customs shipping solution I'm sitting at $120 of expansions before temptation kicks in.

The core set is incredible value but I just don't think I'll have a use for most of it. The dungeon dwellers and Greek ones are no brainers though.

Yeah I think unfortunately Core, while had some great bits, isn’t worth it enough for me.
$30(+$6) gets me the bits I Want/Need, then the rest I’d be paying $90(+$18) for some nice bits but not necessary (though is any of it..).

Then it’s two expansions, and possibly that Brinewind extras bit..

There is just so much in the core set I will never use, so dropped to $1 and will pick up a few items - notably the war mammoth.

I so do not need a bunch of kid heroes and cat people...

I only went with a $1 pledge to get access to the pledge manager. No point in giving them money now when the goods won't get delivered for over 2 years. But before the pledge mananger closes next year I will be adding on a bunch of dragons, warmachines and probably a couple of the scenic expansions.

It's a real shame this stuff is still so hard to get hold of in the UK outside of the kickstarters.

If they don't allow late pledges I'll be happy to let you add on to mine - just PM me once you know what's what!

They do allow late pledges, but it will be for a higher price. So much better to join on a pledge.

I have a pledge -- if any UK people want part but not all of the core set, feel free to DM me. I do not, for example, need the undead giant (I have one from Zombicide: Green Horde already). I'm still not 100% sure I want the core at all, though, so ideally you'd want a bit more than just the giant.

Post by: DarkSoldier


I backed for the Core Set and I might add on some of the dragons. I haven't painted much in the way of larger-sized models; biggest one I've done, I think, is the 15mm Leviathan Crusader.

I would agree on the Greek stuff, but I backed MBP so I'm rolling in Classical heroes, gods, and monsters.

I backed MBP but they weren't quite organised to manage to actually send me the game (I did get a refund eventually...). But, I also backed Gods War by Petersen Games, which has quite a lot of thunder gods and stuff... so I am not sure I need Greek stuff.

Yeah, I might not go above $1, myself. Shipping is under $15, though.

If this is your first Reaper KS, it's a very good (though, as M said, scattershot) assortment of miniatures. But, after Mythic: Battles, CMON, and Reaper Bones V either offered miniatures I already had, or miniatures I probably wouldn't game with.

Reaper's market seems to be leaning towards painters (or their own artists) who want unusual miniatures. Meanwhile, WizKids is Deep Cutting (see what I did there) Reaper with miniatures targeting RPG'ers, Reaper's original audience.

Might stay at $1 for Zombicide, and save the money for Black Friday.

Too many games, too many miniatures to paint. A good problem to have for us backers, at least while creators can absorb shipping costs.

Also Monolith has been talking about Conan 2020 Kickstarer (january) today which will have a VS mode. To do a skirmish game they're selling theme boxes that mix MBP and Conan figures and if you backed either one you'll get a discount code that's they're saying will be one of the cheapest you'll ever see for minis due to them mostly just being repackaged existing stuff.

But thankfully you don't have to fill out the bones V pledge manager for like another year. Plenty of time to decide.

Oh shoot. That would be amazing. Those are some great sculpts, and some of them are very hard to find.

If you send me a list of the bits you don’t want from Core I’d take a look..
Living Dead is definitely a part I want from Core.
That and the prices you’re wanting to sell at, or are you aiming for KS costs to make yours free?

Should have made a new thread about that when it was announced yesterday. Now that's done so this isn't derailed.

I will PM you -- probably tomorrow evening. I am not planning to make a profit -- I just want to see if anyone wants in on the core set, as if it's just me, I may skip it and just get bits and pieces.

There was a pile of stuff from the core set I fancied - the Kobolds, Boulderkin, Krampus, if you're wanting to split some of them out.

The pirate ship is going to be seriously big here's the overall size end to end with the figurehead in it's place for reference



here's the figure head for scale - the ship will come with the lady figurehead and the hippocampus and grimreaper will be optional extras







All of the cannons are separate and they are considering doing a more fantasy version of them as an optional extra.




For $100 it's a bargain I'll probably get one no idea what for but I think I'd regret not getting one more.

Nothing against Reaper, I am in for hundreds of bucks for sure, but I would seriously advise anyone who thinks they will use that sort of huge model to get a 3D printer instead.

I really like scratchbuilding my own stuff, and supporting cool boutique casters like Ainsty for some of the details. No 3D printer for me, thanks.

To 3D print , at the size they're showing this too be, this would easily be $45-$60 of filament ($15 a kg). If you need a ship that size I think getting the bones one would still be worth considering as you're also going to pay $15 for the file to print the ship and I don't know any that aren't tile based that would be any larger then about 1/3rd of that. Probably take a week or so to print and assemble too (though this isn't delivering for over a year so that's a plus I would guess)

And that is assuming that everything comes out as desired.

A friend has a Creality 3 - and maybe a quarter of his prints go awry.

Plus, depending on the 3D printer, detail could be a bit lacking. (See the above mentioned Creality - it is a filament based printer, and there are definite ridges.)

The UV/Resin printer that is tempting me has a 3" bed - putting together a model over 20" is going to be a bit of a jigsaw puzzle.

Overall, I am sticking with getting the model through the KS - save the 3D print for lower res terrain.

Though my wife and I are leaning toward at least two - the question is whether the second one is a pirate ship or a ghost ship.

QC can get really hard really fast with hobbyist grade 3d printers. Tiny little discrepancies can make joining together pieces cut up in Cura or whatever hard to join together.

A reminder for any who took part in this that the DEADLINE for the pledge manager is December 1st. So just over 1 month away! Kind of scary how fast it feels like that date has crept up!

Pledge Manager https://pm.reapermini.com/session/new

Remember you have to register onto their pledge manager using the same email in your KS if you've not already registered.

Oh man, I cannot decide if I want to go in for that pirate ship or not...
If I go in for the pirate ship there are a couple other things I'll have to get...
I can't decide whether it will provide enough gaming value to justify the price, but I feel like it is one of those things I'll forever regret not getting, as it will be double the price or something at retail.

Just completed the PM and was not charged VAT, which is a good indication Reaper has no intention of shipping from within the EU in any case, Brexit or not.

Post by: Overread


Reaper setup an EU hub base - in the UK.

Brexit just messed them up and chances are with Corona for the last year setting up a new EU hub is hard; esp because they likely need the UK to leave and the EU to settle before they can make a good hub choice; especially as we don't know what kind of trading relationship the UK and EU will have (right now we are still stuck with both sides having a stand off with each other)
