Bones KS and Alternate Bits/Sculpts

11 posts in this topic

I looked to see if this question had been asked and answered but I couldn't find anything around or in the FAQ on the KS so, apologies if it has been asked an I'm just blind...

 

Will the miniatures from the Kicstarter come with the alternate pieces that the original metal mini's have? For example the Rosie, Chronotechnician can either be wielding a rifle or a giant wrench. Will the Bones that come from the Kickstarter have these alternate bits?

Very good question. The Derek Schubert hellborn wizard comes with a staff, crystal ball, and wand option in metal.

This was answered elsewhere. Can't remember if it was in the unsearchable unlinkable 30,000 ks comments or on the forum. The minis will be single piece without the extra bits, as shown. With the possible exception of some of the bigger dragons if the wings prove to be a molding issue.

Has to do with the way they're molded. More parts makes it much more expensive. Pretty much for the same reason we needed the kickstarter in the first place. Pity, but there you go. On the other hand, modding Bones is relatively easy.

Well, the beauty of Bones is the plastic is VERY easy to mess with and make alterations. A little green stuff can quickly alter a sculpt into something that suits your vision.

And with the price of em, it means that you can chop, cut, and mod to your hearts extent without your internal money manager freaking out. 8-)

 

Of course I had mine surgically removed years ago.....lol

Trepination. Not just for releasing cranial pressure anymore.

Well, after all the paint stuff that I didn't care about, there had to eventually be something that would upset me. I get why it is the way it is, but man, does that suck for Rosie, especially since they picked the generic big gun instead of the wrench.

This may be a bit of heresy, but you could order the wrench bit from the boneyard, and then replace the plastic gun with the metal wrench. I do stuff like this all the time.

Unfortunately, I believe this is also why the purple worm didn't get his tail...

      Hi nerds, this is my first Kickstarter. Gotta take care of my gamer nerds yeah? There's inserts for minis, favorite dice, and dice jail. The slots are specifically sized to handle Magic cards with sleeves too.
      What do you think? I need all the sharing I can get folks.

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.

      Soon $kittlez will be sent out to hunt down a party of foolish adventurers in my 5e campaign, but before he does he wanted to stop by the forums to say hello!

      A challenge in the "getting to know each other" thread from this month was to try something in the hobby you've never done before. Well, I've never done OSL. I decided to pick up the Bones Lich to use as the Lich Lord for Frostgrave, and figured I could try to match the effect shown on the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" cover with the glowing hands. 
       
      As the mini only has one free hand, I figure the green glow is only from one side... 
       

       
      I started out by priming with grey liner, then used R.A.M. Black on the robes, and linen white to try to figure out what is going to be hit by the glow. 
       

       
      Looks pretty good from this angle.
       
       
       
      Then it was time to add some color
       

       

       
      Thoughts? Comments? and most importantly, suggestions???

      I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.
       
      The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.  
                                                                                                                     
       
      Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.
       

       
      With new head (from GW Wood Elves).                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                    

      These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.
       

       
      The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.        
       

       
      These guys have some extra equipment added.
       

       
      One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.                                            
       

      And his rifle, courtesy of a GW Tau.

       
      That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.
