  1. Just got my order! I feel like Bones minis have come a long way from the first castings. It feels like the subtle details are much more visible than they once were. I got Baba Yaga’s hut, but not my shipping crates, or Giant Raiders. Anyone know if they’re coming in a separate shipment?
  2. Exactly what I was thinking. I'm always game for a strong, well armored, female mini.
  3. Agreed. I'd like to see something akin to a the Diablo 3 Crusader, with a smaller shield.
  4. I'm guessing/hoping December will be an adventurer. They doubled up on monsters when they made October a Vampire. Jan: Rictus the Undying (Monster) Feb: Human Fighter (Adventurer) Mar: Bloodbite Goblins (Monster) Apr: Halfling Thief (Adventurer) May: Cairn Wraith (Monster) June: Elf Ranger (Adventurer) July: Orc Warrior (Monster) Aug: Human Wizard (Adventurer) Sep: Ratpelt Kobolds (Monster) Oct: Vampiress (Monster) Nov: Dwarf Fighter (Adventurer) If they're doing 6 & 6, that'd leave us short one adventurer going into the last month. I'd also guess that December will be a human Cleric (or Paladin?). Reaper stated they were going for minis for a feeling that "hearkens back to the old-school days of fantasy miniatures" and most of them seem to fit in with 1st ed D&D. There were only 3 classes: Fighting Man, Magic-User, & Cleric* (Greyhawk expansion added Thief), and four races (Human, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling*). So if they're trying to stick to the feel of 1st ed D&D Cleric would be the most logical choice, as it's the only one currently unrepresented. Also, only Humans could be clerics. I'd like it to be a female character, since up to this point every Adventurer has been male (well, probably. Who knows with elves?), but maybe they'll break their all-dude streak. Just my thinking. We'll see what happens in 19 days. *yes, Demi Humans were technically both races and classes, I'm just separating them based on our current usage. That might actually strengthen my argument that these characters are based on the Basic box, since November is simply called "Dwarf Adventurer."
  5. For the most part, the Monthly Dungeon Dwellers minis have been releasing with a regular pattern. Mostly, they have been alternating monthly between Monsters & Adventurers. (color coaded for easy parsing) Jan: Rictus the Undying (Monster) Feb: Human Fighter (Adventurer) Mar: Bloodbite Goblins (Monster) Apr: Halfling Thief (Adventurer) May: Cairn Wraith (Monster) June: Elf Ranger (Adventurer) July: Orc Warrior (Monster) Aug: Human Wizard (Adventurer) Sep: Ratpelt Kobolds (Monster) Oct: Vampiress (Monster) Nov: Dwarf Fighter (Adventurer) Now, if I were a betting man, I'd guess December will be an Adventurer. I'm guessing they're doing 6 & 6, and they doubled up of monsters between September & October, so that'd leave us short one adventurer going into the last month. I'd also guess that December will be a human Cleric or Paladin. Reaper stated they were going for minis for a feeling that "hearkens back to the old-school days of fantasy miniatures" and most of them seem to fit in with 1st ed D&D.

  6. I'd like to see a Battleguard Golem conversion kit. Similar to the one for the Dragonmen: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/conversion/sku-down/03457 Some heads, some hands, maybe a torso, a few weapons?
  7. I've been happy to see a handful of Bones-specific minis make the shift to pewter. Namely the "Dragons Don't Share" adventurers. I like the bones a great deal, but I think there are a handful of minis that warrant a mini in metal as well as Bones: Highland Heroine: This is easily one of the best female barbarian minis on the market. The blade didn't seem to have reproduced as well as I'd hoped in bones, and it's unique among other reaper weapons, so I think it would make a fine option as a metal mini. Trista the White Wolf: Another excellent female mini. I rank this one up with Isabeau Laroche as being one of my all time favorites. The Kitsune from Bones 3: It'll be a while before Bones 3 is completed, sent, but I thought I'd drop a nod that these two might be good choices when the time comes. Katanas and Naginatas are really thin bits, so it could be a good choice. *This is a side note, but it's only just occurred to me. Much of the difficulty I've seen with Bones minis comes from bendy weapons. Would it ever be feasible to cast the bulk of a mini in Bones plastic, but add the weapon as a separate bit, cast in "rigid bonesium?" ~Muninn
  8. Wargods of Aegyptus have a fairly extensive "cat people" stock. You could trim off the bow, model a football on his other hand, & greenstuff a jersey on him & he's a jock.
  9. I think this makes my fourth or fifth elven ranger character I've painted in the last few years. In our "King for a Day" campaign our Elven Ranger Nightbreeze is the stealthy, two-weapon-wielding, murder train. In the campaign world there are a handful of godlike dragons that rule over the mortal, fey, and shadow realms with an iron claw, and Nightbreeze left her home to find out how to kill the dragon that rules over her elven nation. I thought the best mini to represent her was Reaper's Deladrin. I knew I'd need a weapon swap, so I chose to use the Bones version. I needed two identical elven-looking blades on the cheap, so I found some loose Lord of the Rings minis at my FLGS and stole their swords. I paid a bit more than I wanted, but it works well. I wanted to strike a balance between summery and stealthy, so I went for citrussy olive green armor, a dark blue undersuit, and deep green cloak. I had been planning on painting to scarf a light grey, but the GM reminded me that we'd just come across a yellow magic scarf that was perfect for a two-weapon fighter. ~Muninn

    Thanks. Looking at it now I think I should probably add some eyebrows to make the stare a bit less ambiguous. ~Muninn
  11. When I went looking for a Kobold warlock PC there weren't a lot of options. I guess magic users are few & far between, so I decided to go the easy route & use the Kobold Sorcerer. A fellow player already owned it, so all the better. Yes it has sunglasses, a fact I didn't realize until I started painting. It's like a little lizard Morpheus. I wasn't sure about how to paint this mini. I'd planned the other PC's to have seasonal-themed colors, but the kobold, Myev, was the fifth character. I knew the player wanted it to have grey-green skin, so I started there. I then added some maroon to complement, & decided to make everything else dark & swampy (the character comes from the swamp, so it fits). It makes the green pop fairly well, so I think it plays nicely. ~Muninn

    Thanks. My fellow players noticed the eyes right away too. Although they called it a Thousand-Yard Stare. One buddy picked it up & said "This guy's seen some things, man." lol ~Muninn
  13. This is actually the first mini I've painted up from my Bones II kickstarter. The Pathfinder Eando Kline mini seemed ideal for a bard. I've found it to be hard to find a good human mini wielding a bow, so I decided to look for something I could do a weapon-swap with. Fortunately Eando here has two empty hands. One of the good things about Bones minis is that they're really easy to carve, so it was really easy to cut a gap in the back of his hand, fit a bow from the Elven Weapons pack into the gap then refill the back of the hand with greenstuff. It's a far better option than pinning two halves of a bow into place. When I was deciding on color schemes for the whole party I'd originally wanted to do a seasonal theme: the cleric, Bran represented Winter, our druid in Spring colors, the ranger in Summer, and Tarn (the bard's name) here in Autumn colors (I'd forgotten we had a fifth PC, a warlock). I figure bards should be more vibrant, so I liked orange, sepia, & a reddish purple for him. I think he looks just right for the character. ~Muninn
  14. I wasn't sure how to name this mini, since it's a discontinued P-65, so I figured I'd reference the currently available tin fig. I painted up Reeve here to be a Death cleric for a recent D&D Campaign. Since I wanted him to seem dark & carry a giant sword this mini seemed ideal. My toddlers got a hold of him a few weeks ago & he got chipped a bit, but I think I was able to recover the damaged areas I wanted to give him a Wintery motif so I used a muted palette of dark greys, blues, and white. It was a fairly simple mini to paint, so the hardest part was probably the face. I have a tough time maneuvering my brush under hoods, so I didn't even try to paint pupils. It's a cleric though, so I figured he was just casting. Hope you like it. ~Muninn
  15. Here are the last two minis I intended to complete in July. The first is a limited edition Necron Lord that was only available by buying the original large army box from Games Workshop. I've had it for years, and I know it originally belonged to my old Navy roommate, but I don't really know how it ended up in my bits box. We often bought minis off one another, or swapped minis, or painted for one another, so I don't know if my current ownership of this guy is an accident, or he result of a trade. Oh well. as long as I have him, he might as well be painted. I painted him in the same scheme as the Pariah above, which is my take on the Nekthyst Dynasty. I was a lot less generous with the gold this time around. I wanted to the shroud to look like a faded old garment that it was buried with, but it looks a bit more like an old rag to me. Finally, a Saim-Hann Autarch. I've had this mini since the 2006 codex came out, but I never had a plan for him. A while back another Navy friend & I decided to do a mini exchange. I was originally going to paint up a Phoenix Lord for him, but it turned out he already had one. I knew he played Saim-Hann, and they're a fast army, so I slapped Swooping Hawks wings on this guy & got to painting. It's overall a nice figure, but there are a few spots I'm not thrilled about. You can't tell from the photo, but there are a few lumpy white area of the helmet. I had to replace my white paint as I was completing this guy & the new one wasn't really smooth. It's not too bad though, and still a good way to finish the project. So there it is, the end of my Month-o-Minis challenge. I didn't quite finish in time this year, but there's always next year. I hope you enjoyed the result. ~Muninn
