Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I […]Read More Bones 3+4 Goblins
Another one of the half-painted minis on my painting station shelf, now done: Looks like she found a shining stone. Not sure if the OSL worked all that well on this mini. So a gnome is basically a hobbit with boots? From the first Bones kickstarter. 77167 Ingrid, Female Gnome Reaper Miniatures, Bones […]Read More Bones 1: Ingrid, Female Gnome
From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag: A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all […]Read More Bones 2: The Sea Hag
Random minis of the week #3-7, Bones 3. Formorian Giant aka The Great Mutato! (Did they spell Fomorian wrong on purpose? Fomorians being monstrous, supernatural creatures from the underworld of Irish mythology, much like the Jotun frost giants of Norse) From Bones 3 core set, this Chaos mutant thingy takes the medal for […]Read More Bunch of Bones again
The Bones lottery in the Drawers of Doom™ came up with the following this week: 1: Dragoth the Defiler on Throne. Just look at the strength of that undead overlord! Holding his sword casually in the air with his arm outstretched, Darth Vader-style! This mini is from the second Bones kickstarter core set. I based […]Read More A bunch of Random Bones
From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini […]Read More Bones Black: The Rock Troll
I have made a conscious choice to try to get some of the earliest Bones miniatures painted before the Bones 4 kickstarter shipment arrives. The reasoning behind this is that the quality increase from the earlier Bones to the newer ones is so dramatic to make many of the older ones unappealing. So to get […]Read More Bones 1: Hydra!
In the first Bones kickstarter Reaper made several pairs of Giants. This pair was labeled as Storm Giants at the time. For some reason, the female is quite a lot smaller than the male. Say what you will, they certainly are giant sized when compared with humans! I chose to paint them as […]Read More Bones: Giants of the Storm Clouds
The second of the day’s random bones is the Flesh Golem from the third kickstarter. Basically your Frankenstein’s Monster. There was a flesh golem in the first kickstarter as well, but this one is larger, fatter and he has got technological bits sticking out here and there. I painted the different parts in several […]Read More Random Bones: Flesh Golem
Next randomly grabbed mini is the Dragonman Warrior from the first Bones kickstarter. This one suffers a bit from the softer Bones material used on the earlier Bones. The details are a bit soft, especially around the mouth and face in general. The scales are not all as marked as they might have been. The […]Read More Random Bones: Dragonman Warrior
The second mini I grabbed together with Ingrid is this Snakeman. I have always found the concept of snakemen, with the heads, bodies and undercarriages of snakes, but arms like men, to be a bit of an evolutionary fluke. How exactly did these evolve? Of course, the answer is as always “magic” or “don’t ask, […]Read More Random Bones: Snakeman Warrior
