I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.

 

The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.

Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.

With new head (from GW Wood Elves).

These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.

The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.

These guys have some extra equipment added.

One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.

That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.

All the more reason for them to fight harder; now they have something to live for!

 

Thanks, everyone. I did a little more work last night, but nothing terribly picture worthy. We'll see what happens today/this evening.

Nice conversions.  Looking forward to more.

 

I used some GW wood elf heads to convert some GameZone Dark Elves into high elves.  They are nice heads.

Thank you; sorry to keep you waiting so long. Here is the rest of the squad finished. (Well, the conversions are done, I'm working on paint as we speak)

 

The sniper. I added some detail to his helmet where the gun was attached previously, and fixed the gap in his arm with some greens stuff.

IMG_1259.thumb.JPG.09a98d38ea5ea24d7036828f3a9b6ef8.JPG

 

Head swap; I used an old GW Necromunda head that has been in my bits box for a while now.

IMG_1261.thumb.JPG.65f80eb1021289ac24a3148ccaaf3036.JPG

 

Another head swap; this time with an old GW Dark Eldar head. I cut off the top knot, and added a spec ops type headset from green stuff.

Headset from the other side.

Special weapons trooper; she was given a grenade launcher made from a gun barrel and random gun handle, again from the bits box.

IMG_1264.thumb.JPG.5fc60dda5c9c0642b2cacd7684ae15a6.JPG

 

These guys got some extra pouches on their backsides, and had their heads turned.

IMG_1265.thumb.JPG.c5d762db6e1369b7c461d9cd107f8b4d.JPG

 

This is what those guys looked like originally (no conversions here).

IMG_1266.thumb.JPG.22d4a6ca48e1dc155240693e5b56701c.JPG

 

Sarge got a hand grenade and a properly bad-arse looking head, complete with stogie (both GW again)

IMG_1267.thumb.JPG.822d68096325a5ccf851b049580526b7.JPG

 

Special weapon trooper, he got a grenade launcher added to the bottom of his weapon, and a little GS work to fix up a detail on his helmet that got damaged.

IMG_1272.thumb.JPG.fe32918e029019cde10c52d760a71473.JPG

 

Special weapon trooper; this guy got a flame thrower added to his weapon. The flamer came from Wargames Factory Great Coat troops kit.

As of this writing, they're actually primed, and have some paint work on them. Pics of that in a while; I had to modify my original paint scheme for them. The first figure I did was waaaay too dark. Experimentation is in progress...

Thanks, Xherman!

 

Quick update to these guys; all of them at this level right now:

Yup, not much to look at right now, the clothing  and armor are basecoated. I still need to do his weapon, boots, gloves,straps, and other little details.

      I have a suggestion for how some minis are handled in future kickstarters and sold at retail.
       
      Some items in the various bones kickstarters were offered as part of a set or combined with a group and not available on their own. For the most part that makes sense. The items are grouped and to offer them separately means that people might only buy the thing they want and the less popular items might not be justified.
       
      But some things make sense in multiples. It would have been great to have them to have been allowed to be bought on their own, or  in multiples or to be sold in bundles of themselves.
       
      As an example, The wall of fire... I wanted to get 180' of wall of fire recently... at each one representing a 5' square, that's 36 individual pieces. They sell in set of 3 for $5. So the 180' is $60 worth of wall of fire...
       
      Most stores (including reaper) don't have enough in stock.  It would have been very convenient to just stock up on them during the kickstarter. There are a couple figures like that in the bones 4 kickstarter too...
       
      So my suggestion would be for things that make sense in multiples. Offer then on their own, but in a number that makes them usable. Like the wall of fire could have been offered as a "wall of fire bundle" with 10, or 20, or 36 for whatever kickstarter price would be appropriate. So 10 for $10, or 36 for $50... but with the reasoning that one does not need a single 5' wall of fire... This could also be done on the Reaper store... A pack of 4 is fine, but the option to get a pack of 10 or more would be great as well.
       
      Just a thought.

      So this guy was a relatively quick paint job - I worked on him over a couple of nights in between other figures and while things were drying. 
      I had originally basecoated him a couple of months back when I decided that I was absolutely going to paint something using Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, as I have something like 8 bottles of it at this point. This was the figure that I pulled out of my Bones drawer. I’d basecoated him and then he made his way to the Shelf of Shame unfortunately. 
      I saw him sitting up there and decided I would just have fun with it. 
      The lemures do come 2 to the pack and are in 2 different poses, but this one is the only one I have painted thus far. 
       





       
      I hope y’all find him as fun as I do!

      Little bit of a center piece for this piece of terrain but it's a great little err mini. I'd like to get a couple more - slap them on some more terrain bits. Anyways:
       

       
      Dry ^^
       
      Slightly different view and slightly wet in this shot:
