  1. i dont need more dragons i dont need more dragons i dont need more dragons these are great looking dragons...
  2. These were two of my faves from Bones 3 but I felt the bones version didn't do the sculpts justice so I picked up the metal versions. Much better. I wish I was more creative with my colors for the dryad but alas color selection is not my forte... always a struggle... Anyways I was pretty happy with how they turned out so thought I'd share with the rest of you wonderful painters... Oh I guess the tree hugger has to be linked ... https://imgur.com/OLgnPOL

    Those look great. I had/have zero use for those dinos but man they are such great models i kind of wish I had got at least the TRex....
  4. Name him Gooey Kablooie and then sculpt a little hamster named Huey... (wonder if anyone will know this)
  5. Bones 2 was my first reaper kickstarter. I bought the core set but on fulfillment learned that I really didnt like the detail level and bendiness of the bones material for human or smaller miniatures. Loved the bigger models though. For bones 3 and 4 I skipped the core sets only picking various add-ons (typically spending ~$100 each time). The Bones Black KS will be an interesting announcement for me... I'll definitely be paying attention to the core set again, but ultimately we'll have to wait and see. Some of the bones black models from Bones 4 have still been pretty lackluster in the detail department (velociraptors for example) but certainly the freebies (owlbear, efreet, goblin shaman) seen so far have been pretty good to great... Oh and of my Bones 4 order, Blacksting is definitely my favorite with Nargalauth (sp... the balrog thingey), Mossbeard, and the firegiant hunter being tied for 2nd...

    New Previews!

    Look! Its a blade! It looks... sharp!
  7. That’s a great model my goodness. The musculature in the legs is fantastic looking... and the overall detail is great
  8. Looks really good but boy would I really like to see some human sized (or smaller) scale models to really see how much of an improvement Bones Black is... I sure am looking forward to this mystery event happening later this year... :D
  9. Anyone have experience with mixed use of oils and acrylics on minis? I've got some larger mini's that I would love to do some base coating with oil paints and then come back to do detail work with regular acrylic afterwards. Anyone know if this is OK or if there are any special considerations you have to keep in mind for this? I understand that oil has an extended drying time (several days) which is fine... Does oil need a special primer to stick to mini's or are the regular brands fine? What about vice versa... if I've already got a (dried) acrylic base coat down is it OK to do some oil on top for some nice blend effects?

    Those casts turned out a lot nicer than i thought they would (nice paint job too!).... hmm might have to pick those up...

    Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

    At one point Reaper had posted a picture comparing the new hill giants to the old hill giants but it was quickly pulled (think it showed a forthcoming reward at the time).... Is it able to be (re)posted now?
  12. I held out well in the end. Locked in for Nargaulath, Fire/Hill Giant Houndsmen, Blacksting, and the big Treant. So far I am still holding strong on NOT ordering DoD but it looked even better on the after party video. I love it but I just have too many unpainted dragons so I really need to be strong. That fan favorite Xpac has stuff that I absolutely love (portal, slaad) but I'm going to have to wait for retail on those... hoping on seeing the slaad in metal tbh... Will wait to see some of the concept art realized as masters before I decide on them... (frost giants, devils,nyarlathotep)
  13. Oh the not-slaad and portal are really nice.... dont suppose you have a shot with Sir Forscale in there? Actually those hellhounds, and the lurker are great too...
