Simple Bones Skeletons

Three minis that just have been standing around unpainted for some time. This is an extra pair of Skeletons I ordered with the first Bones Kickstarter, that I originally has slated for adding to the base of the Colossal Skeleton back when I was thinking along the lines of making that one into a Kings of War scenic based Skeleton unit substitute. Since I later changed both my mind and said base, these were left over and have been cluttering up one of my many mini trays. The armoured one in the middle was a freebie I was sent by Reaper last year as part of a Halloween promotion when I ordered a bunch of bases and stuff off their website.

 

77017: Skeleton Swordsman from the first Bones kickstarter. This is in the more bendy bones material they started out with.  Sculpted by David Pugh.

77239: Skeleton Spearman from the second Bones kickstarter. It is in a more rigid material than the others, which holds details slightly better. Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

77018: Skeleton Archer from the first Bones kickstarter. This is in the more bendy bones material they started out with.  Sculpted by David Pugh.

Each of these are currently available in packs of three from Reaper. I have based them on 30mm round lipped bases.

Each of them have weapons are a little bit bent, which I could have fixed by the hot water/cold water trick. I did not do this to these specific minis as they were outside of the batches I did all at once after receiving the KS pledges, and later I could not be bothered.

 

Quick and easy paint jobs, just some bone yellow paint, some black, some dark steel, some orange for rust, blue, reddish brown and greys. Strong quickshade wash, a few details and hey presto.

Not my best work, but perfectly servicable. It is obvious on the table what they represent.

At least they are no longer cluttering up the tray of prepped minis.

Onwards and Upwards!
