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?

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

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

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

      This was a super fun fig to paint!  I'm not really happy with the eyes, and I think I might go back and add a black eye or a bruise at some point.  I think that would add some character, as well as cover up the mediocre job.  Otherwise, I am really happy with the rest of him.  Comments and critiques are welcome as always, thanks in advance!

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.

      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!
