Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie

That all these minis are Reaper Bones might just be a lie. Sorry about the bad pun there.       The Vampiress Lady Illona by Mantic, a character from the cover art of the first edition rule book for Kings of War. I got this with the undead army I bought in the first KoW […]

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.

A useful construct for when Necromancy does not make hard enough […]

Bones 3! The Air Elementals

We begin with some fitting music:   The Bones 3 kickstarter shipment arrived at long last! Hoody Hoo! Which also means I have been in a frenzy of difficult mould line removal, scrubbing little white rubbery plastic bits in warm soapy water, dipping said bits in boiling hot water then cold to unbend bits here […]
