Always interesting to see what Reaper comes up with though so thanks for keeping the news and humor going KK!

It may not be dire, but Antimatter has a DOOM CLAM if you're in need of more D- animals.



Proxy a doom clam for a dire one?

And we're back! What will we get this week? Dire Smallbox Bacteria? Werewhales? Werewales (they transform into Wales under the full moon y'know)? Who can say, who can say?



First up, the Frost Giant Queen, who can also serve as a normal queen for your 54mm campaigns or a Frost Titan for your 15mm games.



With her comes Skorg Iron Skull, Fire Giant King who ascended to the throne after winning a no-holds-barred pull-my-finger tournament. What if he had an affair with the Frost Queen? Would it lead to war? Or a new peace between the rival tribes of giants? Whatever happens we know one thing for certain. It would be steamy.



He's escorted by a Fire Giant Bodyguard, whose weapon of choice is completely useless for any target smaller than himself. Perhaps there's a message about the Fire Giant's cultural myopia in there.



In contrast the Fire Giant Warrior's navel flails are great for clearing out smaller targets, he just strides up, shakes his belly and clears the place out.


Logar was a bit uncertain when the King outlawed pants, but after serving a few months as executioner he got used to it.




Werelion and werewaterbuffalo!



The solicit says 'medium air elemental' but I think the picture is wrong, all I see is some crumpled up plastic wrap from the package. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.




In contrast I think this is brilliant, a clear sylph allows for all kinds of interesting inking and painting effects. Which I am completely unqualified to pull off, but I might just try anyway.





Some useful terrain.



Here we have one of the most flexible models Reaper has made. A fierce Lich regenerating its power, or perhaps a Vampire Lord resting in his native soil, or just a zombie being called up or a ghoul waiting for some helpless intruders to feast on. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.



And a model for the 'after' moment.

So that's the April Bones releases, who can say what madness will come next month!

Werezombie resting after feasting, sideshow prop to take picture next to of the worlds largest man (15mm games), worlds smallest man (54mm games), attach lid paint it black and partially cover it in some asteroid sort of terrain for a 2001/x-wing hybrid game..... truly endless possibilities.

ooooooorrr, I said it might have been an add on only available in the pledge manager. I'm leaning more that way now. Got the dire werelion while I was at it!

I broke down and backed Reaper Bones 4 in the end. I pledged the 1 dollar originally and then forgot about it. Got reminded via kickstarter, and was thinking I'd just waste the 1 dollar and leave it, but the lost valley and dinosaur figures (along with the dire creatures) swayed me. Not sure what I'll use them on, but I can't wait to get my dinosaurs, cavemen, fertility idols and... dinosaur cavemen.

If you want inspiration, there's always Walking with Dinosaurs. And Walking with Prehistoric Beasts. And Walking with Cavemen. Children ask for them by name. Or at least mine does. Nonstop. Then he pulls leaves off of branches like a sauropod.

If you want to get into giant insects, Walking with Monsters: Before the Dinosaurs will really rile you up against Our Ancient Enemy, The Arthropods. It makes killing spiders feel like the epic conclusion to a half billion year old grudge match.

This sounds utterly delightful. I'd imagine very similar to Ork! The Roleplaying Game.

Are we talking prehistoric games now?

Paleo Diet from Ganesha Games is pretty cool. Customizable caveman warbands hunting AI driven fauna.

I've been amassing Bones critters for it as it is. That Dino expansion is most wanted item!

We're venturing off topic, but that's not the actual boss. The game just wants you to think that's the boss before the big reveal of the super secret bad guy.

Here's the real end boss-



Actually, now that I think about it, I'm not sure if the boss is the 1/80 scale model or the spouse realizing just how big and how much you've spent on that thing.

This month's free Dungeon Dweller is the Cairn Wrath, based on the movie, the Wrath of... okay, I'll shut up now.

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

And we're back with more Bones, more METAL and...



whatever the hell that is...

This month's METAL takes a trip to Dreadmere, a subline that seems to focus on swamps and general horror and despair.


First off a fearsome witch.
Or is she just the washer woman?


And a cruel mercenary.
Or is she just gathering firewood?


And a masked assassin.
Or is she... I dunno, a fishmonger cutting out the bones? I got nothing.

Then there's a new line of what I assume to be were dinosaurs.






Like a lot of recent metals I would rate them as good but costly. I'm not a fan of the little Ms and Bs for size, I miss the old 10mm markers. I'm not sure how big some of these are.


This month's special model is rather nice wraith.

And on the Bones side...


Some sort of were-dragon lion, a dragon bitten by a were lion or lion bitten by a were dragon perhaps.


Interesting, not really a fan, I know it's an air elemental but I think it needs more anthropomorphic features.



Two suits of power armor.






Some macabre terrain.


And someone to hang out in it.


An unpainted Shipwreck Revenant. At $25 for something a couple of inches tall I think we have a real winner. Except...


I... huh. I thought the were dinosaurs or walking shipwreck would win this week but y'know, I gotta give it to sexy were giraffe. Were-Giraffe-By-Night to steal a name from Adam Warren.

I'd call this month a winner. The shipwreck alone made my day, never mind the rest. I got the were giraffe in the last kickstarter, I think I'll have to break his sexy butt out for some painting.
