@Kyoto: Are you sure those weren't posted on 4/1/21? It seems a bit odd for Reaper as a whole.

I wonder if these are also on Amazon from various Chinese importers. The glasses actually look cool if they're actually real. Probably less buggy than the Cyberpunk game recently released too!

Another month, another release. A small one but with some gems.



Female ghosts can spice up any dungeon



While Mail Ghosts are sad reminders of our once great postal system.



Charon lord of the Styx can also be used to rep Tommy Shaw lord of Styx.



The Well of Despair can also be used to model the Well of Perkiness by adding pastel colors and some flower decals



Gazebo. I cannot believe that went there. I just can't even.

Some say he was a local kid with an affection for boats, others that he's a German tourist who crashed his Bayliner on the rocks and found Purpose ... all we know is that he now watches over all the souls that cross from mainland each summer as ... The Ferryman!

Spoiler:



The preemptive strike of those players is 100% justified. That Reaper gazebo is clearly a Lovecraftian jellyfish horror posing as an innocuous decorative structure until foolish prey wanders underneath for it to envelop and consume. See, it's even furtively detached two of its tentacles for a quick stretch while it thinks nobody is watching.

I expect sages speculate that it's a kind of mimic, and that there's a Gygax module featuring it somewhere.

(has never played D&D, but would definitely buy that gazebo if he did)

That gazebo is extremely annoying to assemble, and doesn’t fit together well. Even in their picture the columns aren’t in the base properly. Just a heads up for those interested.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Without the base it could be a generic moderately-advanced ship for Babylon 5 Wars.

I could see that as a Vorlon ship if they dropped the number of polygons down significantly so it could render on an Amiga.

Nah, just paint it like cloth and remove the base.....

If you ditched the base and put it on top of an Easter Egg..... just think of the wargaming/RPG possibilities!

Not too too much to say on May releases.

Some terrain.



This particular piece is called "Ruined Doorway" not sure why when it's obviously a mimic.



This is where the lack of scale shots matters, the Arcane Circle looks like it could be cool if those spikes are man-sized. Otherwise hard to see spending $13 on it.



The $20 ruined temple however, that looks totally worth it.

On the metal side there's some stuff for the Not~Shadowrun line they're doing.



A Street Sam- I mean uh, Avenue Ashigaru.




And some generic, public domain skeleton robots.



I've been staring at this and have NO IDEA how she walks without tripping herself. I guess that's why she's the huntress and I'm just a dude with a keyboard.



From FB I gather this was a fun submitted figure. Cute one.

This huge Julie Gutherie wyvern can also serve as a familiar for any 96mm figures you're looking to convert.

I dont speak fluent Kyoto so I can't tell if he was being sarcastic here, but this wyvern is a nice sculpt but it is very small.
Defensive sculpt low to the ground, taking up a bigger base size than the beast needs.
It might be a wyvern after a 96mm character steps on it, in which case I get it now.

The fethhueg wyvern is this one:


Very nice model listed for sale on several sites but not Reaper itself for some reason.

Apparently a historical model, a shopper circa 2020 heading out to buy groceries.


Classic Kyoto.


This thing does stand up without the central spike, but its a bit of work to do.


Has separate base, head, sword and shield, has the clock sculpt of the 8th era Chaos Warriors and is a near exact fit for scale. Take a head sword and shield from the Chaos Warrior set and you have Games Workshopized him, not that you really need to do that for the optics but you do as its old squishy bonesium. Then he will serve well as a Exalted Champion. The block he stands on is an uncanny fit for a 25x25mm base.


I dont know why I like this but I do. Pumpkins are removable from the cart

All the above are Cones 4 core set minis.

You can get plenty of dark tomes from Dungeons & Lasers stretchgoal set 2.

Good stuff. Forgotten Chapters is a decent microbusiness making decals for addicts. Besides labelling their accessories for not-Sisters the below earns my trade:

I didn't get this Terrain add on and regret it. Cant comment on their Shadowrun stuff, it was post kickstarter. Apparently Bones 6 will feature it heavily.

The Arcane Circle is big, you can drop one of their Great Old Ones on it, Greater Daemon etc. Those spikes are easily man sized.
The Temple is vacuum formed plastic I have heard (but its an old memory), you might need to backfill it and mount it. The Temple bits are all regular Bonesium. Yes, its nice piece.
Both pieces are for stop-the-ritual boss fights, you can send a party of adventurers against cultists plus boss with any of them, but the fight will mostly be on the surround.

Thanks Orlanth.

I'd want to see the terrain bits in person, especially the temple. Older bones tends to warp and that would make some of these useless.

Large but not huge. The top one is Ritual Circle, not Arcane Circle. Reaper's Arcane Circle is the Stonehenge model from Bones 3 which is bigger.



I remember why I didn't buy at the time now.
Just Google search 'fish tank temple ruins' and you will reach a large variety of bigger, sturdier and cheaper models. Many are pre-painted and while they all need some touch up if they are it wouldn't take long to do.

Aww they beat me to a description of the terrain. It is all pretty nice, although the Arcane Circle and Temple are a bit thin and might need to be dunked into a pot of hot water then held flat on the counter top to correct flex. The Arcane Circle's "teeth" also tend to pop out easily and need regluing, but they don't break.
