Bones 3: Kyphrixis the clear dragon

In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one. Reiterating how to paint translucent minis: Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks […]

Conan: King Conan’s Lion

Next up from the Conan Boardgame is the great Lion. After all, Conan needs something to comfort himself with in his royal court when he bears the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow…          This lion mini is significantly larger than the Bones lions I did the other day. Also a […]

And a transparent, quivering wall moving towards us at speed… It ended badly for our party even […]

Bones 3: Cemetary Golem

First, some music: Sometimes I come across a mini I just adore the concept of. This is a golem or contruct made out of gravestones, broken bits of mausoleums, bone fragments and skulls and with Nightmare before Christmas -style cast iron gates for wings! A useful construct for when Necromancy does not make hard enough […]
