Continuing the Core set slog:
From left to right, #153, #151, #96, #3 of the Bones 4 core set.
#151 and #153 are from the “Elves” subset, #96 is Baba Yaga, and #3 is some sexy “come hither”-looking lady in a graveyard.
These are also examples of Bones minis not always being made to quite the same scale. The two elves are distinctly smaller / slighter then the other two. One could say that this can be explained by people being different sizes, but still.
#3: Sexy lady on a grave
The bared-shoulder-come-hither-look in a tight formfitting dress has to be a vampire, don’t you think? Why else would she be standing on a grave looking all alluring?
I painted the dress with Green Stuff World Metalcolor Cæsar Red (a metallic deep red) and Reaper Rose Gold, a metallic pink. I find these colours work very well together.
Rose gold is not available at retail (yet). I won the Rose Gold on the Halloween Twitch stream lottery draw together with three other paints and some halloween-themed minis (YAY! I actually won something for once! And I did not already have the minis! Double yay!) and what better way to try it out than on a shiny, clingy, silk dress?
The provided grave-base fit perfectly on a 30mm lipped base.
#96 Baba Yaga:
Baba Yaga, the Evil Witch of Slavic folklore, flying around in her Mortar, wielding her Pestle. Or maybe it’s a massive Q-tip to clean out the ears of her chicken-legged dancing hut?
I made a 25x35mm oval base and drilled a hole in the bottom of the mortar. I unbent a paperclip slightly and bent the long bit at an angle, and glued the end in the hole. The rest of the paperclip was glued flat on the base and lo! A flying mortar. I glued Baba Yaga herself down at an angle to make her looking more like she was sitting comfortably rather than squatting precariously. I am pleased with how the angles match up to make her look straight ahead.
So now she can be, say, a mounted necromancer or other kind of wizard.
In the KS this model was represented by a concept drawing, and the sculptor has done a good job of realising it.
Regretfully, I did not get her Dancing Hut from the KS.
#151 Elf Swordswoman of some sort. Maybe a straight-up fighter?
#153 Elf Swordswoman of some sort. Maybe a paladin?
IRL, the Cape has some nice shading going on, but it does not show up in the washed out pictures. All the minis look better when not magnified as in the pictures.
25mm bases. Not my most inspired work, but then again, not the most inspiring minis either.
I am doing the swordswomen in similar colours on purpose, so they -together with some similar models- might be formed into a unit for Kings of War or similar game at a later date.
But dear lady! What big teeth you have!
