  1. Bones 3 Crusaders

    Those casts turned out a lot nicer than i thought they would (nice paint job too!).... hmm might have to pick those up...
  2. Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

    At one point Reaper had posted a picture comparing the new hill giants to the old hill giants but it was quickly pulled (think it showed a forthcoming reward at the time).... Is it able to be (re)posted now?
  3. I held out well in the end. Locked in for Nargaulath, Fire/Hill Giant Houndsmen, Blacksting, and the big Treant. So far I am still holding strong on NOT ordering DoD but it looked even better on the after party video. I love it but I just have too many unpainted dragons so I really need to be strong. That fan favorite Xpac has stuff that I absolutely love (portal, slaad) but I'm going to have to wait for retail on those... hoping on seeing the slaad in metal tbh... Will wait to see some of the concept art realized as masters before I decide on them... (frost giants, devils,nyarlathotep)
  4. Oh the not-slaad and portal are really nice.... dont suppose you have a shot with Sir Forscale in there? Actually those hellhounds, and the lurker are great too...
  5. Lol I had jusssst locked in at $68 (Narg, Fire Giant houndsman, Hill Giant hunter, Blacksting) but the UberTreant looks great. He will be super fun to dress up with flock and stuff too...
  6. Boar Demon

    GJ! I need to do this one... he was one of my favorites from Bones 2
  7. I've got so many large, winged reptiles that I'm trying to actively resist them now. But, ugh, this one and Dance of Death are going to be hard to not add....
  8. Silver and Black was the scheme I was thinking altho I'm not sure if I could pull it off... Also, I am definitely of the mind to try and mod in some wing tears where the one dragons forearm is clasping the other dragons wing...
  9. Female Ranger

    This was supposed to go in ub3r_n3rds excellent Before/After thread but they got ate there (perhaps a pic/attachment limit) so since I've got the pics anyways figured i would post them... Ahh, human ranger with two swords!
  10. Metal or Plastic miniatures

    I only buy metal for man sized or smaller mini's. I only buy plastic (bones) for the larger and LARGE monsters (which I basically only buy during Reaper kickstarters for the added savings).
  11. Lol got me! I had the fire giant houndsmaster earmarked but was actually a little bothered by the fact that that would mean I would have 4 fire giants vs 2 hill vs 2 frost (dont ask thats just the way my brain works...) But now that the hill giant hunter has been added there's no problems! Awesome sculpt on the giant... not so sure on the lion based on that view, cant tell if thats supposed to be a mane or not...
  12. I am leaning towards red or black vs silver... except I've never done a metallic dragon... Well, I've never done a dragon period truth be told...
  13. So Dance of Death is exactly the sort of thing I've been waiting to see since I'm not a gamer and just like cool looking mini's. My only complaint, and I fully admit its a horrible one, is that I wish the Dragons looked a little different: one looks like Nartharax and the other looks like one of ma'als heads. Julie is an amazing sculptor, particularly when it comes to her dragons, but her look/style is so consistent that they all kind of blend together a bit, especially in the scale arrangements/patterns. Still, that's almost certainly a must buy for me because thematically i friggin love it...
  14. 77279 Narthrax the White

    Does the vaseline trick really work? No adverse effects with the curing of the green stuff? Wings pull out easily?
  15. Female Ranger

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!
  16. Oooh this is a fun thread! I started painting when I got my Bones 2 KS shipment, soooo 2015? I am terribly, terribly slow... I've only painted a dozen or so minis since, so dont have a lot of pics to pick from (and I dont have a great photography environment too boot...) but here's the first two mini's I did in prep for my bones 2 shipment: ...drybrush and black wash... never too much drybrush and black wash! Fortunately I've finally figured out that drybrushing and black wash are NOT universally required lol... Edit: there must be a file limit?
  17. Liquitex has an ultra matte medium as well, tho I've never tried it. I just use testors dullcoat spray to take off any shine and protect the finished mini....
  18. The jailer is one of my faves from Bones 3 too... well top 5 for sure at any rate
  19. I know the Bones 3 minis are being phased in over the next year or so but I didnt see any mention of the new paint colors or, more importantly, the new liners. Has there been any news as to when we can expect the new colors and liners being made available for purchase?
  20. Liner and New Paint availability?

    I don't think the paints are listed on that sheet tho.... only miniatures are...
  21. 77376: Minotaur Demon Lord (WIP)

    Agreed. Dont see alot of him or the other big Bones 2 demons n devils... looking forward too...
  22. @Sirithiliel where did you get your paint stands from?
  23. My lance for Kyra was also slightly bent and the material its made of ISNT as susceptible to the boiling water trick as the less dense bones. That said, I held it IN boiling water for a good couple of minutes (2-3) and it did straighten a bit and become SLIGHTLY more pliable. So i would recommend immersing it in a full boil for a couple of minutes and then try again. Even then if yours is heavily bent you might not have much luck. Overall I really like Kyra and Laverath... it underwent the bones transition really well.
  24. Got my shipment today, all 10 pounds of it. The only oopsie i have is that Reaper sent me Ogre Command instead of the Ogres (3) addon. So will have to straighten that out in a few weeks. Tianot is ridiculous. I mean s/he's amazing but just so large I had to laugh. I hope one day to get it painted but I have such a backlog of 'big' mini's (dds2, kaladrax, nethyrmaul, kanjira...) that its going to be years. Still, there was no way I was going to NOT get it. Maybe I'll bump it to the front of the 'big mini' line, who knows... Lets see what else... the giants (frost, fire) are great. Really like the sculpts but was a bit non-plussed that they are made of the softer, rubber bones material that I really dont like. The fire giant swords were bent to hell but straightened nicely with the boiling/ice water trick, but because the bonesium is so soft i'm a little worried they will bend back again. Anyways, casts are great, material not so much. Dagon is fantastic. Really happy I got him. Goremaw also awesome. Marthgaluar is also really cool. Much larger than I expected. Kyra and Lavath is pretty good. Kyra actually turned out reasonably well. I was expecting a mess to be honest because she's so small and typically that is bad news for bones but she actually turned out not too bad. I dont think there will be too much of an issue painting her up. My favorite though (well ok, CO-favorite along with Tianot) is the froghemoth. Sooooooo happy I got him even though the pencil drawing left much to be desired. He just looks awesome and has a great heft to him. Added bonus that he will likely not be too difficult to paint up nicely. Love love love him.
