Bones to Metal?

14 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!

The new levitating Sophia from Bones 3 would get my vote for metal.

      Been away from it all, for a bit. Finished this one up, a little too fast -to enter it in a competition (Attack-x).
      Got a bronze, and a ton of advice on where I could have improved and upped it to silver......very exciting for my first in person competition. 
      Thanks for looking, c&c is much appreciated. And I'm guessing on the catalogue number, hasn't been released yet from Bones 3.

      I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
       
      I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
       
      The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
       
      So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.
