  1. Not sure what search words you are using on ebay but if you are just looking at acquiring a quantity of bits, try just searching "bits lot", and its alternative form "Bitz lot" in the Toys and Hobbies category, then use the sorting function to organize them from lowest price to highest. There's whole bunch of stuff currently for under $10.00. Edit: (Oh, crap, now I'm seeing all kinds of cool stuff I don't need...)
  2. So this showed up on my Youtube "Recommended" list having viewed the commercial... I don't speak Spanish, but are they indicating it was supposed to be a film, but it was cancelled?? https://youtu.be/s69zOzCJfQI

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Hopefully they wont be getting boxes full of dead fumigated stink bugs... Just try sending one of those back to Reaper for replacement because it’s missing a leg or two...

    Basing question - materials to use

    For cork, I like using this kind of thicker coarse cork tiles, available at most craft stores. It looks more like rocks to me.

    Basing question - materials to use

    Sanael covered a lot of the ground already. Here's a blog post about basing I did a while back, it doesn't add much new, but does have some photos of the different materials... http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/search/label/Basing

    Wow, thanks for the kind words, Fencig! Yes, it is a bit more golem looking than a true Ent.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    For anyone who might be interested, I have posted an assembly and conversion thread over on the Conversion and Presentation sub-forum, to show how I remounted Mossbeard's arms so the wider parts were changed to be the shoulders rather than the wrists. Mossbeard Conversion

    Mossbeard Arm Reversal Conversion

    This morning I primed his CD base and, when dry, I glued him to it. That finishes the conversion and assembly phase. He now joins his fellow Bones 4 models in the painting queue... Next time he makes an appearance will be in the Show Off section.

    Sat down this afternoon and blended the shoulder joints with some greenstuff. Next step is to prep a CD base and glue the feet to it. Then nothing left but the painting!

    Last night and this morning I glued the arms to the body; first one then the other. Now I just need to blend the shoulder joints. Really happy with how it is looking so far.

    Nagendra Snake Cultists Snakemen from Bones 4 (Pic Heavy)

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments! Glad you like how they turned out.

    Thanks, kristof65! An interesting point! I can now say my Mossbeard contains 2% real wood! I didn't have any wire that I felt was thick and strong enough to use for pinning, so decided on using the dowels; figuring they'd be thick enough to offer good support for the arms.
  14. This past week I finished a unit of 10 of the Bones 4 Nagendra Snake Cultists snakemen along with accompanying Shaman. I converted one of the armored two-handed swordsman to have a single sword arm, and used a gnoll's arm with shield to replace the other one. I also sliced, repositioned, and reglued some of the soldiers arms to make the unit look more varied. Painting articles can be found here: Nagendra Part 1, and here: Nagendra Part 2

    Mossbeard Arm Reversal Conversion

    I've been working on the arms some more the past few days. I got the hands glued to the new wrists, and when the glue was set, used green stuff to hide and blend the joints. I also used some of the extra green stuff to blend the joint between the body and head a little.
