Bones to Metal?

13 posts in this topic

I was looking for something else, when I saw the Goblins in the Bones III Kickstarter.  Those guys are pretty epic.  I have been working on a set of goblins and do have some Bones and Metal minis of the existing Goblins.  I vastly prefer the newer sculpts (the football head ones with all the sharp teeth) but for the display set I have in mind I'm wanting to get metal versions of all of them.  

Will the Goblins in Bones III be made available as metal minis some time in the future?  And is there a general way to tell on other types of figures?  I can understand not having the Dragons translate across due to weight and size, but are there some things that make it into metal and some that don't?

And when will we see Devona in metal?  She is the only human sized new sculpt from KS1 not released in metal yet.

Some models will make the transition, others will not. I am not aware right now of any specific plans to translate the models discussed in the above two posts to metal in the foreseeable future. My crystal ball extends only 90 days into the future, however.

We announce our upcoming releases on our website 30-90 days in advance, that is the best place to look for upcoming release information.

Correction; Devonna, I have been informed, is planned for metal in January.

I would like to add a "YAY" to more metal miniatures then Bones.  I would gladly spend the extra $$$ for them

Any chance, while we're here, that "77381: Dragons Don't Share" will ever make it's way into DHL ?

The adventurers are already available in metal.

 

The terrain and dragon will not be produced in metal.

Anybody have a list of what metal models have been converted to bones?

Conversely, I'd be interested in a list of Bones that have NOT been converted to metal.  Complete-ist that I am . . .

Honestly, the one I'd like to see in metal is  77039: Janan, Female Dragon Slayer.  She's a little smaller scale than most of Reaper's adventurers, and I think would work better in metal or resin.

To be perfectly honest, the larger the scale is, the less I'd like to see it in metal.

Liking the look of some of those March releases.  Which will become my April purchases to get to the $40 Anniversary figure!

      Just finished up my Horned Hunter. Base coat is Army Painter Barbarian Flesh color primer. Reaper HD mixed with Citadel washes for the rest. The base is just Citadel texture paint with some dry brushing. 
       
      Comments and and critiques are always welcome.

      Don't know why I'm so nervous to put this out there.  Really it's just for fun and no big deal, but I'd like to enter myself into a goblin challenge starting tomorrow, May 24.  Time Tbd.  Khanjira is currently still in the box.  
       
      Tonight I will dry fit, clean, and attempt to fix warping.  Tomorrow afternoon I will begin the challenge.  
       
      Just to be sure: I have a couple packs of round size 10/0, 5/0, and 3/0.  Any of those would be allowed, correct?  They are within the 10 mm long, but not sure where to measure the 1 mm wide. At the ferrule, just the bristles at the ferrule end or the tip?
       
      okay, now to clean the paint area and I'd some colors.

      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?)
