It came gold, but I sprayed it twice with GW Rough coat....

 

I thought about trying to do marble, but likely will just do my normal stonework colors....

Maybe the necklace and big soft pretzel he came with? :blink:

Chains?

 

A pair of boxes or chests.

Hanging from his hands, by chains, if you can find chain fine enough.

 

They just unhook when a warband minion grabs one.

That's a neat idea...

So I picked up a couple of things at Michael's today....

013.thumb.JPG.e59e2ce325b66df6a590d354f3df622b.JPG

And I am wondering if this is too tall....6.5" (16cm) to the top of the plinth...

My original thought was to remove the pillar and platform and just use the base....

 

Thoughts?

He looks like he is levitating, like he raised the pillar out of the ground. 

 

Ooooooooooooohmmmm, 

 

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm,

 

Doooooo... ...nuuuuts,

 

Nommmmmmmmmmmm...

 

Leaves plenty of room to hang things from the hands this way.

      “Off to off the wizard”
      The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”.  Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title.
      I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto.
      Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker.
       
      The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstarter, all Chronoscope Bones are coloured grey,
      The Flying Monkey, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, with Dorothy and Toto by Julie Guthrie. Only the Scarecrow seems to be released in Bones as of yet.

      This set was delivered as part of the third Bones kickstarter campaign, but is not sold by Reaper. There seems to be no mention of it here on the Reapermini-site at all, which I find a bit strange. It does not appear in any search I have tried. However, it is to be found on the Victoria Miniatures site, so I assume it was only made by Reaper for Victoria Miniatures and not as a joint product even though it was in the Bones KS.
       
      That aside,
       
      IT'S SLEDGEHAMMER TIME!
       

       
      I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in a very long time, and have never really tried my hand at weathering or any of that lark. So the results are not all that either. In hindsight, I think I should have done the piece in a different color more consistent with the uniforms I ended up doing, maybe added some camo netting or something. Also I probably should have looked into how to do weathering properly -I don’t even have a sponge. And maybe I should get my airbrush up and running again. Oh well.  It is perfectly servicable for the tabletop.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      the backside pictures all turned out too blurry to be usable.
       
      The gun and carriage are in hard polystyrene HIPS plastic, and quite straight forward to build. Parts fit together fine with little or no flash to speak of.
      The crew are in bones material, and the rubbery type at that. Only the wrench and the rangefinger piece needed the hot water treatment to straighten anything out. All (apart from the range finder part) are one piece, with tabs beneath their feet to fit seperate slotted 25mm round bases in a similar style to 40k. There is also a large oval base for the piece, but I did not use that here.
      The tabs needed slight trimming to fit the slots in the bases. Apart from this the minis only had very slight mould lines, which can be ignored unless they, like for me, trigger your OCD and need to go. I carve them off with a sharp scalpel.
       
      The range finder-piece was completely wonky even after boiling, and I ended up having to drill through it and insert a pin to get it to be something approaching straight, The crew are slightly smaller than similar models from the Imperial Guard, sorry, Astra Militarum from Warhammer 40k which this model clearly is meant for.

      Howdy,
       
        I'm getting something...

      P.S. Sooth, I say!

      The Hog Wild Crew from the game Malifaux by Wyrd Games.
       
      Warning: I don’t play Malifaux, but I do love these minis. Apologies in advance about any in-game mistakes I might make here.
      These are the entire contents of the boxed set called “Hog Wild”. HIPS plastic miniatures, many pretty small parts and a bit fiddly, especially the bonus gremlin (to the left) that was included in the box. Even so, lovely minis with a great sense of both personality and movement.
       
       
       
      The Hog is called “Old Major” but I have done him up as the tyrant Napoleon from the Animal Farm animated film (1954) which is a film everybody should watch (or read the book by George Orwell).
      “Old Major”, incidentially, is also the name of the old hog who starts off Animal Farm by holding an inspirational speech shortly before he dies, a speech that inspires the revolt on the farm and the rise to power of Napoleon. But I found this model to be much more Napoleonesque than the wise Old Major…as some animals are more equal than others.
       
       
       
       
      Ulix is the Leprechaun-like beardo with the top hat, and as far as I can tell, the leader of the crew.
       
       
       
      Penelope the hound helps keep the rest in line. I did this one similar to a dog a friend of mine had many years ago.
       
       

       
      The three little pigs huge boars. Excellent models with heaps of animation and personality!
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Imagine one of these barreling out of the undergrowth, charging straight at your little, unprotected hunting party…
       
       
       

       

       
      And the bonus bayou gremlin, and extra included in the box with a sticker on the outside.
