Ghostly apparitions seem to be a thing these days. Here is the Bones Shadow Hound, made in translucent purple: Slightly reminiscent of “Attack the Block”. The thicker the plastic gets, the less translucency the mini retains. Come to think of it, I probably should have shone a light through it from behind to show the translucency […]Read More Bones Translucent Shadow Hound
A bit of variation from the Dungen Saga, while still keeping with the dungeon theme, of sorts: Reaper Bones KS2 77391: Cloaker aka Cloak Beast Your basic dungeon hazard or random encounter, a cloaker will drop down from above and envelop it’s victim while biting down hard. Much like an octopus, come to think of […]Read More The Cloaker
Some more of the Bones 2 Skeletons, now also with armour and clothing: Some bad mould lines along the stonework that a couple of them stood on needed to be concealed with flock. That makes 12 of them finished, with a few more doubles still unpainted to go. 20mm square Mantic base, BonesRead More Six More Bones Skeletons
So the Age of Sigmar is upon us is it? It’s definatly not the Warhammer I know, that’s for sure. I can’t see this rule set working without making every game a narrative one. There is absolutely no way to balance it. It seems the rules strongly favor the player using few but powerful models, and horde […]Read More Age of Sigmar
New recruits for the ever growing legions of the undead: Reaper Bones 2 92815-19 Zombies. Much less bendy than the Bones 1 zombies. Yay! But still quite soft details. I do not have the metal versions, so I cannot say if the metal ones are similar or have sharper details. I think I might just […]Read More Even more Zombies!
Life gets in the way, and almost three weeks have flown past without anything done at all. Today I finished the Reaper Bones 92620 Evil High Sea Priest from the second Bones KS. This would be the first mini from that KS I have done. This one was chosen as it is the featured mini for […]Read More What I did today
So for April, I have been thinking about what to do for my resolutionary challenge. First, I need to prep a lot of the new minis that have arrived, such as the second Bones kickstarter shipment. I also have the second wave of DreadBall Xtreme and the first wave of DUST totally untouched as of yet. Second. […]Read More April!
This week has seen little time for hobby, so I “cheated” by doing groups that were extra super fast to finish. First the Reaper Bones 77016: Rats. 12 of them to be precise. These are cute little critters. Until you notice that they are the size of rather large dogs…and they are many, A shotgun only […]Read More The third for March
This month I have decided to try to not only actually get something painted, but also to try to do several different kinds of miniatures, and chip away at the Mountains of Miniatures Madness by painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer […]Read More Resolutionary Painting Challenge: February. Chapters I, II, and III
Reaper make several Cthuloid monsters in the Bones material, such as this one: 77113: Eldritch Demon (50mm base) aka Cthulhu Again, simple drybrushing on black undercoat. No washes or advanced techniques. This is practice for the big one…Ph’ngui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagnRead More Small Old One
Time for a couple of quickly drybrushed big’uns! These are great for easy drybrushing! Excellent detail and sculpting. Mantic Abyssal Dwarf Lesser Obsidian Golem #1 of 3. from the Kings of War Kickstarter. 50mm base. A heap of rock come alive. Reaper Bones 77112: Agramon, Pit Fiend From the Bones 1 kickstarter.

So the first weekend after being back from the summer holiday I had some hours to spare and have finished the following: Reaper Bones Bugbear. This one has been sat half done on the shelf for quite some time now. Gah! I do seem to have accumulated quite a few of these larger ones. […]Read More Off the shelf: Reaper Bones, Deadzoners, another Mantic Werewolf
