I am taking a break from the bobbybox for a few weeks to recharge the enthusiasm (or sheer stubborness) needed to continue with those minis. So getting back to Shadows of Brimstone, here is the last of the 30mm based minis I have from the wave 1.5 shipment. Only the XL Darkstone Hydra and the […]Read More Intermission: Snakes, Pork, and Shrubbery
…5 Gooooolden Rings! ‘Tis the first week of Christmas, and time is scarce in the face of working at a shop and my sons birthday celebrations. But I have managed to squeeze some painting in now and then, resulting in these: First, a recap of how to deal with translucent minis: Clear minis […]Read More Shadows of 7 Sins and see-through minis
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 […]Read More Bones 3: Let Dead Dogs Lie
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 […]Read More Bones 3: Kyphrixis the clear dragon
The Thing. Last seen on an Antarctic research station…At least that is what this makes me think of. So naturally, I painted it in fleshy tones to make is as horrid as can be. Strange plant life around here… Now, start rolling for Sanity Loss. 77521 Gravewailer Reaper miniatures Bones 3 KS Mythos […]Read More Reaper Bones 3: Gravewailer aka The Thing
From the Bones 3: Mythos expansion comes the “Camel w/ Pack”. Luckily, the pack-part is loose and fits quite snugly so it is not nessecary to glue it on. This turned out to be a really good thing, as I left the pack on it and went on a few days’ trip. When I came […]Read More Reaper Bones 3: Camel. The miniature, not the cigarettes.
Just finishing off some more bits and bobs cluttering up my workspace, making room for all the goodness to come… From Bones 3: Mythos Expansion: 77525 Great Obelisk. I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really […]Read More Bones: Dungeon Decor, Cthulhu Statues and more
I remember when, during a dungeon crawling AD&D session a lifetime ago, we entered a part of the dungeon where the corridors were spotlessly clean but for a sign saying “Meet the Cleaner” or something to that effect. And a transparent, quivering wall moving towards us at speed… It ended badly for our party even […]Read More Bones 2: Gelatinous Cube
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 […]Read More Bones 3: Cemetary Golem
The last week or so I have been prepping Bones from the third kickstarter. I have spent enough hours this weekend undercoating with my airbrush to get welts on my trigger finger. There are so many of them! Setting up my airbrush is a bit of a bother and I have to sit out in […]Read More Bones 3: Mystic Circle aka Stonehenge jr.
This is a pair of terrain pieces that appeared in the Bones 3 pledge manager as was as far as I remember not actually a part of the Bones 3 KS campaign. Naturally, as it was called “Statue of Dagon” I had to have it. I kept the painting simple, as I want […]Read More Bones 3: Statue of Dagon
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 […]Read More Bones 3!
