Deep One High Priest - Bones vs. Metal

Recommended Posts

Here are the Bones and metallic version.  Not going to ask you which is which this time.   If I had to choose I would get the bones one.  The metallic one is a bit better but considering the bones is most likely going to be so much less expensive and it's almost as good IMO.

I have come to prefer the metal over bones these days. When you are about to spend hours on a project you want the best quality possible. A single dperession on the face for example can ruin all your enthusiasm. 

 

But if you are just gonna speed paint some minis for a horde or preparing your random encounter baddies for tomorrow's game, then bones is certainly great bang for your buck.

Yeah just trying to build a collection right now so Bones are good bang for the buck.  Especially when it comes to large figures.  You can't beat it for what you get when they are over 2" tall.  Once I am done with those anything standard size I would probably just get in metal.  The detail is better and that is really important at the smaller sizes.  Although there is something to say about droopy plastic spears actually being better than fragile metal spears that break when your not looking. IMO:lol:

 

Also you can't beat Bones for durability.  My motor skills are terrible now after getting flesh eating disease and it's nice not having to worry at all about droping a model.   I ran one over with my wheel chair once and the paint didn't even crack.  Just had to run some hot water over it to get the plastic back into shape and it was good to go.
