Was looking at the bases on the ones in the Preview section and started wondering just how wide the integral bases are. I've got some of the Chronoscope ones in the 30mm recessed bases they come with and was thinking about getting some of the 3 with assault rifles to convert into additional soldiers, so I was wondering if the new bases match the recessed area of the 30mm lipped bases?

The good news is that if it's too wide, you can literally trim it with scissors. Bones material cuts extremely easily compared to metal. Too small and a bit of filler (spackle, wood putty, green stuff) should be pretty easy. The only actual bad news is that it may be quite a while before those figures are available for retail purchase, what with one thing and another. Because logistics is *hard*.

I'm kind of more concerned about them being a bit small and needing to match the base because they actually look like they've got some rather decent details.

They fit pretty well. I didn't spend a lot of time examining them, but I did pop one of them in a 30mm lipped base real quick to see if it fit. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I get home.

My camera ran out of juice, so I couldn't take a picture, but I did check the basing. The IMEF guys fit almost perfectly into the inside of a 30mm round lipped. Some of them overhang by a little bit, but a hobby knife should fix that right up. Not all the Chronoscope figures have the correct sized base though. For example, 80004 Sascha Dubois has a round base that's a bit too small for an insert. Many of the fantasy characters have roundish broccoli bases that would also work well as inserts, if 30mm is your preferred size.

yeah it is, mainly because I've used it with the ones I currently have (And a couple other minis I've found that seem to fit the aesthetics of the IMEF troops for specialists as a medic and tech).

 

Hoping we'll get both a Bones and Chronoscope version of Bulldog whenever he comes out

      Finished this miniature today for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Part of a LOT of demons. He has more slime on his base then the picture brings out, but he was fun to paint and actually sorta quick due to some airbrush work.

      This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days.
       
      The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon):

      From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale
      (Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.)
       
       
      There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free.
       
      Quick ground rules:
      1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one).
       
      2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol).
       
      3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters.
       
      4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly.
       
      5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier.
       
      Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot.
       
      Alright, now let's get this party started!

      I got two Efreetis in my recent Reaper order. Out of the two one had far more gap lines than the other, so I opened the one that would take less effort to work on first since it's been awhile since I have properly tinkered with a mini.

       

      First thing's first, gap filling! This model had quite a lot of mold lines too, I dealt with most of them with an xacto knife and a file. The Bones Black material is brittle enough to handle a file if you're careful unlike the white Bones counterpart.
       

      While priming I noticed that part of one of her horns was missing, must have snapped off during shipping or during my work on her. Touched it back up with some more green stuff, just waiting for it to cure before I prime over it.
       

      In the mean time, there is nothing stopping me from popping into Procreate to play around with a colour scheme. I wanted to try something a but different than other painting examples I had seen. Still incorporating the red and gold, just in different ways.
