Reaper Bones 3: Camel. The miniature, not the cigarettes.

From the Bones 3: Mythos expansion comes the “Camel w/ Pack”.

Luckily, the pack-part is loose and fits quite snugly so it is not nessecary to glue it on.

This turned out to be a really good thing, as I left the pack on it and went on a few days’ trip. When I came back, the camel was listing heavily to it’s right side. I pulled them straight again, too bad I forgot to take a picture.

Herein lies one of the problems with the bones material, especially when the legs or other supporting bits are thinnish. They sometimes cannot support the weight causing the mini to droop earthwards.

The legs are fine for just the camel, but they could not support the weight of the pack as well, and bent over time. I have experienced that almost all dragons and larger models need a third contact point in addition to the legs, or some reinforcement with metal rods to avoid drooping.

 

 

 

still listing a bit.

It could have been a wild camel if not for the bridle.
