Thank you, Pochi!

 

Hopefully you can come over in September or October when the stores are all packed with the Halloween stuff!  

 

 

Nope. Daughter's baby is due the first part of April. I love spring though so it'll be fine!

    I sprayed the Bone Wheel black over the weekend, and today I did the dry brushing on it.  I'm generally happy with it.  

Since it's scenery designed to have a one-time use, I didn't put a whole lot of effort into it.

I love Halloween time at the Dollar Tree!  I stopped in today and got a few more goodies!   ::D:

 

 I plan to use the skeletons on this garland for making a Bone Wheel as needed in the Thaw of the Lich Lord "Bone Wheel" scenario.

This bird skeleton will possibly be broken down into bits to make a pile of bones from some dead creature.  Though I may save that bird skull for some sort off special stone idol.   (Turns and looks at the half a plastic doll left over from the mermaid-tail arch project...:B):)   IMG_5128.JPG

 

And this pack of Zombie figures isn't either Frostgrave of Ghost Archipelago specific, but I wanted to show them just in case some you might have a use and want to go get some.   The dogs look very useful as some sort of demon dogs.  The gravestones possibly useful too, though a little big.  The figures themselves are big, but perhaps useable as zombie giants...   There are 10 of the figures, 2 dogs, and two tombstones in the bag.  IMG_5129.JPG

 

Shown with Sir Forscale.

They also have skeletal rats, visible down the end of the shelf...   And I wonder what could be done with those big skeletal hands...

Based on your post I bought two each of the garland, the rats, and the crows.  I've got bone bits for days now.  I also found a bag of skull rings.  The skulls on them are just about the right size to use as shields on 28mm figures; or I can add them to terrain as details.  50 rings to a bag, so I could equip a fairly large unit if I so desired.

 

Liking the bone wheel.  Consider the idea stolen.

Happy to be an  enabler helper!   Cool about the skull rings!   I'll have to look for those next time I go.  

 

And thanks for the Bone Wheel comment.  i'm glad you like it!  Feel free to steal any ideas. ::):

The bone wheel is pretty cool looking. 

 

 

Thanks, KruleBear!  Got to say it turned out better than even I was expecting! ::):

That Bone Wheel is another example of creative thinking!

I love it!

 

Since I'm very fond of Undead and Demonic minis, I will be keeping an eye out for cheap large plastic Halloween stuff now.

 

*** Sigh***

 

*** You Othersideoftheworlders have the best stores***

If there is anything specific you are looking for, let us know.  Some of us could provide it in a care package from the States.

Very nice!

But shipping is often more expensive than the items.

With very special things I know who to ask, these things,  I will try my luck here.

Soon the garden centre will stock up on Halloween stuff, hopefully with something useful as you guys have.

It's been a while since I poked my head in here; it's good to see that you've been keeping busy turning out great looking terrain pieces while I wasn't watching!:winkthumbs:

SPLENDID finds AND SPLENDID creatiions! The Bone Wheel reminds be of the Skeletal Carousel from one of the Mordheim books; nice as it is now, it has the potential for even greater things.

I love the Bird Skeleton. That really has uses.

Thank you, malefactus!   I'm glad you liked my creations.   I never got a chance to play Mordheim, but from what I hear, Frostgrave is very close to it in some ways.
