KD: Monster Assemble! [Open]

Recommended Posts

They are the bonus secret minis on the antelope sprue. They are being referred to as "Intimacy" online. They are proving to be quite the challenge for people to assemble. Lots of discussion on what goes where. This is the most plausible build I have seen so far. I personally am considering waiting for at least an official assembled shot.

I am using superglue for some parts and plastic glue for others. Which one depends a lot on surface area for the join. Wrists, for example, will all be plastic glue. Feet-to-base, too.

Definitely plastic cement. I used super glue on a couple, but the cement not only makes a stronger join it also make assembly easier.

 

"Intimacy" is the name stamped on the sprue. They match the art for that section of the rule book. An official picture would definitely help, though I'm reasonably confident in what I did. The big issue is that there is another hole in the woman's back suggesting something is supposed to fit there. So far though the only thing I've seen attached there is the bit of cloth I have as the man's skirt.

That explains why I hadn't seen them before, I abandoned most places discussing Monster as soon as the core boxes started showing up, want to go into the game as blind as possible!

 

@Pingo - I'm using plastic glue, Revell Contacta to be precise.

I actually have that sprue out too work on tonight.  It is rather annoying that he went to the effort of labeling the prologue sprue and then did nothing with this one.  I'll take some pictures along the way.

As promised, I've started working on the Screaming Antelope/The Hand/Intimacy sprue.  We acknowledge it is "Intimacy" because the sprue says so.  ^_^   When approaching a problem like this my first step is to eliminate that which is know, in this case the monsters.  For something a little different, I snapped a pic of the sprue in question and then proceeded to highlight the parts I'll be using. First up is the "Screaming Antelope."  Overall it is a straightforward build.  As mentioned above, one of its ears needed a little trimming to fit.  My cast also had an issue with one of its legs, almost like a mold slip.  I trimmed part of it down and plan to build the rest of it up later.

Next up is The Hand, which I have removed but not yet assembled.  This leaves just the "Intimacy" minis attached.

Superglue.  And yes- they broke at the joint.  Sigh. I'll break out the 2-part epoxy for the bigger minis.

Plastic model cement will hold just as well, if not better, than the epoxy and be much easier to use.

Just be really serious about good ventilation.

      I’m on the road; post-Gencon, my muse is informing me that I need more troops for the Portable Fantasy Campaign. I try not to ignore her lest all inspiration leave me, so here we are so far. Most of these figures are from Accurate, with a couple of other makers mixed in. 
       

       
      I brought a bunch and don’t expect to run out; we’ll see how far I get.

      I was idling yesterday and decided to paint up a few 1/72 scale plastic figures to add to the portable gaming set up I'll be taking to Gencon.  These figures are a mix of old Airfix and other more modern manufacturers; I don't think any two are from the same maker or set.
       
      I'm not entirely happy with the painting; my hands are steady enough and my magnification is good enough for the size of the figure, but I'm working toward trying to predict/plan/produce the right paint consistency to apply it with a Winsor Newton 000 brush without being so gloppy that it dries on the way to the miniature, nor yet so runny that it spreads as soon as it touches the miniature.  At least they all meet the three foot viewing distance guideline for tabletop gaming.

      Has anyone seen a little girl wearing a red hood and carrying a picnic basket? Asking for a friend!
       
      Here is my version of the Bones werewolf. He is a very beefy guy and was fun to paint. Since I was painting all of my wolfish figures, I tried to give them a mix of colors. This guy got the same fur treatment that I did on my warg. I need a few more "normal" wolves for my pack and will probably do at least one white. For now, I have finished all of the ones that I own. I had a good time painting them but am ready to paint something that doesn't have fur!

      I have gone through my "hoard of unpainted things" and painted all of my wolf and wolf-like critters. This one is the Death Dog from Bones 3. I am really glad I did the Kickstarter because I ended up with so many minis I have enjoyed painting that I probably would not have purchased otherwise. This is one of them. Not that there is anything wrong with him, I think I would have gone for a regular wolf or werewolf before going for a two-headed wolf. However, he is going to have fun chomping adventurers!

      So in addition to the warg and winter wolf that I already painted, I did this one, a werewolf, and the dread wolves that came with the cemetery set. All of them are the Bones versions.
