    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Just came back from seeing "Ant Man and the Wasp"; how cutting edge is Reaper, that Baba Yaga was referenced a couple times in a Marvel movie! Everybody needs a Baba Yaga hut now! https://youtu.be/FzqehA8d0jI

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I primed my tents with Krylon (with Fusion) Camoflage Khaki, and it dried perfectly dry.

    I got two of the Battlefiled Crate tents painted up quick this afternoon to use in my game at Historicon tomorrow night.

    Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Dungeons: Mines

    My Bridge sets came in the same shipping box as my Core sets. So I don’t think they are shipping then separately.

    Hmm... that’s not a bad idea. Though I think the main problem is in the thin flat area between the two rocky outcropping, and any wire that would fit in there might not do much. I could drill into the rocks each side of the gap, and run a big wire across it, and then just paint it like somebody put an iron bar across to provent things from crossing into the track. I think I will try the boiling first, and if that doesn’t work, I’ll experiment with some coat hanger wire.

    If you got the track curved wall set, be sure the curved walls you have line up with the curved track sections before you paint them. I had two sets, and all the walls had curved further inwards, so the track doesn’t align right. If I pull them back manually I can get the track to fit. Hoping a boiling water bath and repositioning will hold them in place permanently.

    Princess Snow, Captian of the Dwarf Miners

    Thanks! And congrats on scoring a couple sets of your own. It was a lot of fun to paint. I do eventually plan to paint the others, but they’re not high up on he priority ladder.
  9. strawhat- I'm glad you enjoyed the thread! I can't recommend Frosgrave nd Ghost Archipelago enough; they are really fun games. If you haven't already done so, be sure to check out our campaign thread for even more inspiration : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78871-our-ghost-archipelago-campaign-2018/

    Can anyone think of a use for these?

    -Glue some sort of bead do-hicky on top, and a base on the bottom, and paint them to be Force Field Projectors. -Painted as Futuristic Roadcones -Inverted, and glued as a smokestack onto a section of horizontal cardboard tubing to make a steam boiler. In fact they could be glued as smokestacks all over any sort of dwarves or steampunk structure. -They can be used as the mantlet for any number of Sci-Fi gun emplacements. - They could easily be converted into flight stands.

    Kassandra of the Blade Conversion, Painted as Snow White (77322)

    Thanks for the kind comments, everybody!
  12. This past week, I painted Kassandra of the Blade from the Bones 3 Core Set. A couple weeks ago, I found myself painting up a Disney Monopoly Snow White figure to command a unit of Dwarf Miners (Long story you can read about here: Princess Snow), and I was really struck by the simple but effective primary color scheme of Snow White's outfit. I immediately decided I wanted to paint a Bones female fighter figure with the same palette. So, I pawed through my boxes of unpainted Bones, and fell upon Kassandra of the Blade as the most suitable of what I had. The one thing I didn't like about her was the dual-wielding of swords. So I decided to chop off her left hand and replace it before I started painting her. Then came the decision of what to replace it with. I considered a shield for a while, then in looking through my box of Bones transplant donors I came across Sarah the Seeress, whose staff had gone to make my Highland Heroine into a Frostgrave Appentice, leaving her with just her left hand holding an orb of some sort. At first I thought, no, why would Snow White be holding a crystal ball; but then it hit me: paint it like an apple. So it was an easy matter to cut off Kssandra's left hand at the wrist and glue on Sarah's hand with the orb. And here's the final result. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and probably it's one of the best faces I've done to date.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Oh, my gosh, Rob! Such big news! Congratulations on all counts! Now I see why you will have space for the Leonardo stuff. Will you be closer or further from Harf Co now? When are you going to tell the guys?
  14. This past week I repainted and rebased the Arrowette Clix figure I got from the Rob Dean box, to use as an Elf archer in my Ghost Archipelago crew. There was nothing I could really do about the mask that was cast on her face, so I just went with it. Why is an elf archer wearing a mask? So far no one's been brave enough to ask her!
