The Bugs of Summer


Some creepy crawlies to feed the giant spiders.
The basing seems to disagree with the minis, the particles go everywhere when handling these.

Reaper Bones giant bugs, sold in packs of two under the moniker “Vermin”. Here we have Tick, Beetles and Centipedes.

Simple painting, as in I couldn’t really be arsed.
The gradient on the red on the ticks did not turn out well at all. Servicable, but not well. And much too bright, really.

They are painted with Vallejo The Shifters 77.018 Dark Green/Tin and 77.008 Green Gold / Cold Blue on black undercoat, and on grey for the beetles. Two or three coats have been used to make the shiftercolours even visible.

All in Bones classic PVC
30mm bases, and 35x25mm base for the ticks.
If you look really closely, the centipedes have Reaper 30mm round display bases and the beetles have the standard D&G 30mm chamfered rounds.
I must say that I much prefer the D&G ones, as the Reapers have a different curvature. This both leaves less top space for the mini and makes it significantly more difficult to pick up from the table by the base. I have stopped using the reaper 30mm bases for the most part because of this.
