Bones 2: The Sea Hag

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 […]

Bunch of Bones again

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 […]

A bunch of Random Bones

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 […]

Bones Black: The Rock Troll

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 […]

Bones 1: Hydra!

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 […]

Random Bones: Flesh Golem

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 […]

Random Bones: Dragonman Warrior

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 […]

Random Bones: Snakeman 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, […]

Oxidation Beasts: Bones and 3Dprinted

In D&D  the Rust Monster is a threat to the Dungeoneers’ precious equipment by it’s ability to rapidly disintegrate into rust powder any metal items it comes near. Other than that, it is quite harmless.   From the first Bones kickstarter, the “Oxidation Beast”, so named presumably because Rust Monster is trademarked. For some reason […]

Bones 2: Stone Giant

Just a random mini this time, the Stone Giant from the first expansion of the second Bones kickstarter from 2013.     Stone Giants are the smallest of the giants, but still much larger than Conan. And have mothers milk that also can be used as spackle.   77336: Stone Giant sculpted by Jason Wiebe […]
