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...

      I have yet to assemble a complete figure from any of the Frostgrave sprues of plastic parts, so I thought I'd start slow with a head swap.  Enter Anval Theicedamned, Evil Warrior.  His head is just begging to be chopped off.
       

       
      I figured I'd swap one hooded head for another so I chose what appeared to be an armored hooded head from the cultists sprue and after chipping away at Anval's neck area, applied the super glue and commenced to hold it in place for several minutes.  Yes, there is a better way, and it involves drilling and pinning things.  Bah, details.  It eventually stuck and I decided on a paint scheme.
       
       Much metallics of various kinds.  Sadly I only have a few.  And a non traditional skin color.  This guy with no visible face lends itself well to an exotic or alien race.  Also, there's some nice detail on that axe.  I decided it must be some kind of magic weapon, perhaps of the air, storm, lightning element kind?  So I applied an unusual color and effect on the blade.  Sparking snow and yes, alien goo.  Also tried to give him a lightning tattoo in alien goo on the back.  
       
      Here is the finished piece.  So how convincing is the new head?

      I have been away from painting for what seems like ages, but the other day I went back to Duke Gerrard and completely repainted him.   I kept it pretty simple, and the face is as basic as they come (I could not even paint in his eyes)  but I think overall he is better.  The main armour was painted using the palest purple I could find, a craft paint called Iris, followed by a simple wash with army painter purple tone quickshade ink. The cloak I used Golden yellow followed by a wash of army Painter Strong Tone.

      Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama.  Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756.  (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?)

      Oops - meant to put his in show off.  How do I fix it?  Mod help?

      Had a little paint sesh with the elder digit today.  Can you guess which I did and which was the ten year old's?

      Yet another speed paint, this one pretty much human sized.  I'm thinking of using this one in a Frostgrave warband.  It's not exactly human, but I think that works in the setting (there are beast crafters after all).  If I do decide to use it in a warband I think I'll have to base it on something standard.
