Bones 4: The Barbarians

Inbetween working on the LPL rounds 7 and 8, I am plonking away at the Bones 4 core set. They do need to be done at some point, so I can start the Lost Valley expansion that I for some reason am itching to do… There are only 78 minis left to paint in the core set. We’ll be done by Christmas, as the fated saying goes…


The Barbarians!


These are B4Core #95 Elf Female Barbarian, and B4Core #5 Human Male Barbarian (pinhead). Names to be determined, as they are as of yet unreleased.


The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.

The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

So I painted her in a similar scheme.


The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil’s frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.


Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew…

That other one:


The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.

That is a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.


There’s a new playah in town! Come get some!
