Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.



The group:

The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.

I really want that Oni!!


They should both be hitting retail soon(ish).  It's been a long wait for them both!  I know the male Oni was a ReaperCon resin preview many moons ago, and the concept art of the female Oni has been seen about the forum for years.

Love those oni. The bracelet of eyes is awesome! Stealing it. (The idea, not the actual bracelet. The Oni would likely not appreciate it.)

 And the male fox is great, you did a nice job capturing the character of the sculpt!

 

Because I wouldn't be me if I passed up a chance for pedantry, the Tengu monk is wielding a non-historical version of the kusarigama. The weapon historically has a kama at one end and a weight at the other, but a lot of recent anime has popularised the look of the double-kama. My personal favorite is the gun-kusarigama used by Emerald Sustrai in RWBY.*

 

 

*I am NOT going to discuss whether RWBY is an anime. It has awesome weapon designs, is all I care about right now.

Wow.. What a cool bunch.. Reminds me of my D&D (was called AD&D then lol) 2nd Ed adventures in Kara-Tur - Forgotten Realms (Japanese fantasy setting) days.. 

 

Would love to grab a hold of them and create an oriental war-band.

      Painted some three weeks ago... Great mini, seems easy to paint but in practice it is quite hard. Not completely happy with the result...
       
      PS. Books and jug are some random casts from HirstArts molds.

      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!

      So, one of my personal mini projects atm is working on some of the NPCs my players in my homebrew campaign are encountering.  And one of my favorite groups in that world are the Hunts - a loose-bound organization of groups (each called a Hunt) of fighters/mercenaries/warriors, each with their own specialty, who dedicated themselves to maintaining the roads and paths of Fidel during the millenia-long anarchy of the Mortal Wars.

      Now, what makes the Hunts distinctive from any other mercenary bands? Well, they ride BADASS FLYING MOUNTS.
       
      Gryphons, for the most part, although one or two specialize in pegasi, and a few ride more esoteric things... 

      Four NPCs intimately intertwined with the group are members of the Red Hunt - a sort of catch-all for powerful, destructive mages. Faukner, her apprentices Formel and Tiercel, and her wife, Charr. 
       
      So, I've had the Stonehaven Half-Dragon Duelist for ages. It's one of my favorite dragonborn minis, and I decided it'd be perfect for the swashbuckling Charr... It's a great mini, neat and clean with tons of personality.
       
      To give you an idea of who Charr is...
       
       
      Anyways, I've decided to do a WIP of this set of minis, starting with Charr's two forms. This is the thread for her humanoid form, obviously - I'm painting up the Temple Dragon for her dragonness form, and I'll try to do a WIP for that, too.
       
      So!
       

       
      I started off nice and simple - hit the face with some red, and decided on a blue-and-white scheme for the cloths. I'm trying to bring out some of the swashbuckler in this mini, so I like the naval colors. That said, I could use ideas for the cravat.

      Ordinarily, I'd paint my dragonborn's hair simularly to her scales and try to ignore it, but gonna go with dark for these dreads. They're sweet as hell. Wish DSM would give us a KS for these.
       

      And there's the face, pretty much finished, TBH! I washed it with Games Workshop's purple wash, pretty heavily so it'd sit well in the mouth and scale cracks, and then highlighted just with pure red. This is a proof-of-concept for the temple dragon, as well as a mini on it's own, and I'm pretty happy with it! Used Palimimo Gold for the eyes - something else that'll carry over!

      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:
