So here are a few of the Bones weapon sprue conversions I've done.
14069 Sir Malcolm, metal figure, opaque gray hammer.
(Please forgive the chipped paint; this one has been done for a while and used in games.)
77413 Margara, Bones figure, clear red hammer.
77417 Ivar, Bones figure, clear red hammer. As a side note to anyone who is looking to paint this figure, the detail on the chain mail is very shallow.
And a Wizards of the Coast Renegade Warlock, plastic figure, clear purple staff.
All in all, easy conversions. I'm looking forward to doing some with the swords and shields.

I’m on the road; post-Gencon, my muse is informing me that I need more troops for the Portable Fantasy Campaign. I try not to ignore her lest all inspiration leave me, so here we are so far. Most of these figures are from Accurate, with a couple of other makers mixed in.
I brought a bunch and don’t expect to run out; we’ll see how far I get.
Some of you are old enough to remember the old Dungeons and Dragons toy line from way back when. In that toy line, they featured an evil fighter named Warduke. He also made one appearance in the cartoon, and was given stats (more than once) for use in the pencil and paper RPG.
I have decided to make/convert a copy of him for myself.
This is who I'm talking about for those that don't know, or remember:
He got brought back for 3.0 or 3.5 edition D&D, too:
Now, that's some pretty cool artwork, and my apologies to Mr. Reynolds, but it's wrong. Warduke is LEFT handed.
Anyway, now that we all know who I'm talking about, I chose the Bones version of Goldar : http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/goldar/latest/77047
to use as the base for this project.
And this is what I've gotten done so far:
Hand removed for a weapon swap, left arm armor sculpted with GS, started reshaping the left boot.
The clay golem. So overmuscled! So cantankerous-looking! So versatile for conversions!
It's probably cliche at this point, thinking this guy would make a great Edward Hyde. But that doesn't make it wrong! Some green stuff tatters, a grommet, and a pin, and here we are. Look at that savage hairy-knuckled brute!
For my Western game, set in the 1870s-ish, I made a spinoff cleric-like class, the Sawbones, for healers that prefer Mad Science to religion; people like Dr. Moreau, or Dr. Jekyll, or Dr. Frankenstein, or Dr. Herbert West. The 59009 lady scientist is the mini my Sawbones player uses for her character, and Hyde Formula is absolutely something she would concoct and abuse.
So here's the pair of them.
I am actually proud of the Hyde conversion!
