Assorted Bones

 Great job on the bookshelf.

 

The cool thing about the bookshelf is that it was sculpted by our very own TaleSpinner, a forum member who's become a professional sculptor.

WOW - really liking the owlbear paint job - great work - if that is simple, then i need to work on simplifying ;) - eyes are awesome

 

mold line/seam on the shoulder is really jaring - they are a pain to hide, but it would have made a big difference on this figure

Those bookshelves look fantastic. Your work on the wood and the books themselves make me think I should be picking up a couple more myself.

 

And great paintwork on the owlbear too. Nothing about it indicates a quick paint job. Very nice!

Yeah; I thought about trying to do something about it, but it wouldn't be simple gap filling since there's so much texture going right over the seam.

 

 

Did you straighten the bookshelves some how? the (unpainted) ones I have seen always looked terrible warped. 

I figured I would need to, but no, I didn't even do the typical dunk in hot water thing I do with most Bones.  Maybe I got lucky, not sure.  I did use a knife to cut the bottoms and flatten them out a bit.  They were fairly wobbly initially (and you can tell in the pictures they're still not perfectly flat) but they stand well enough on their own now.

 

 

Those bookshelves are really cool, but that owlbear is easily one of the best I've seen so far.

Thanks; the trick on this mini is focusing on the face.  Almost all of my time was spent working on the face.  It is clearly the central point (even more so than normal).  Beyond the face, the rest of the mini is just some basic painting and drybrushing.

Next time, try filling in the gap, and then going back over it with a tooth pick or other pointy object, going with the grain of the fur texture.  It should end up looking fairly unobtrusive.  That said, I think the model looks pretty awesome as is, and I'm sure the seam is a lot less noticeable at arm's length.  Great work.

      I'd felt like I was banging my head on a wall with the main mini that I was working on lately, so I set that aside to work on this as a something simple to make me feel a bit better.  My first try at NMM, too (which shows ).  All I can say is that the contrast really did look better to my eyes until I started taking photos of it.  At least it's somewhat made up for by how nice the eyes and the gem on the left bracer turned out.

      Painted some three weeks ago... Great mini, seems easy to paint but in practice it is quite hard. Not completely happy with the result...
       
      PS. Books and jug are some random casts from HirstArts molds.

      I have a suggestion for how some minis are handled in future kickstarters and sold at retail.
       
      Some items in the various bones kickstarters were offered as part of a set or combined with a group and not available on their own. For the most part that makes sense. The items are grouped and to offer them separately means that people might only buy the thing they want and the less popular items might not be justified.
       
      But some things make sense in multiples. It would have been great to have them to have been allowed to be bought on their own, or  in multiples or to be sold in bundles of themselves.
       
      As an example, The wall of fire... I wanted to get 180' of wall of fire recently... at each one representing a 5' square, that's 36 individual pieces. They sell in set of 3 for $5. So the 180' is $60 worth of wall of fire...
       
      Most stores (including reaper) don't have enough in stock.  It would have been very convenient to just stock up on them during the kickstarter. There are a couple figures like that in the bones 4 kickstarter too...
       
      So my suggestion would be for things that make sense in multiples. Offer then on their own, but in a number that makes them usable. Like the wall of fire could have been offered as a "wall of fire bundle" with 10, or 20, or 36 for whatever kickstarter price would be appropriate. So 10 for $10, or 36 for $50... but with the reasoning that one does not need a single 5' wall of fire... This could also be done on the Reaper store... A pack of 4 is fine, but the option to get a pack of 10 or more would be great as well.
       
      Just a thought.

      So this guy was a relatively quick paint job - I worked on him over a couple of nights in between other figures and while things were drying. 
      I had originally basecoated him a couple of months back when I decided that I was absolutely going to paint something using Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, as I have something like 8 bottles of it at this point. This was the figure that I pulled out of my Bones drawer. I’d basecoated him and then he made his way to the Shelf of Shame unfortunately. 
      I saw him sitting up there and decided I would just have fun with it. 
      The lemures do come 2 to the pack and are in 2 different poses, but this one is the only one I have painted thus far. 
       





       
      I hope y’all find him as fun as I do!
