    Oddball knights?

    Game of Thrones, Shovel Knight and Dark Souls have recently made me fall head over heels in love with the concept of the knight in shining armor. However, I'm having a hard time finding any really off-the-wall knight miniatures - knights who either fill very different class roles than usual (mage knights, thief knights, etc.), have odd choices in fashion, or knights that have really bizarre or unusual bodytypes. Can anyone direct me to some weirdo knights, by Reaper or otherwise? My findings: There's a DS boardgame coming out at some point, but I certainly don't want to wait that long. Paizo Battlemage Rackham/Cadwallon Militia Automaton Rackham/Cadwallon Kyrus The Somber Reaper's Fingal Winkbeard Squires also accepted.

    Oddball knights?

    Some really nice recommendations so far. I feel like I must not have been looking hard enough, because I found some more of my own! Reaper's Golrick, Mercenary Trollforged Warrior II (Trollforged has a couple nice weirdo knights in its fantasy human range, this one just catches my eye the most. PRETTY SURE they're older sculpts repurposed for resin resale, but I dunno.) WOTC prepaint Troglodyte Captain. Definitely not a human. Definitely knightly in one way or another. Otherworld pig faced orc command II Somehow I forgot the oft maligned Kingdom Death range, which is absolutely rife with dark soulsy sirs/sers. Black Knight (who has itty bitty kitty feet :3c) Flower Knight King's Man White Knight, Heavy There's a few more, including a beetle armored knight, but these are a good enough example of them all. Unfortunately, KD produces their miniatures in expensive, limited edition runs that make obtaining them difficult and annoying... so of course I need more recommendations. :b

    Fat dragon minis?

    There's a LOT of dragons out there. Most of them have adopted a pretty standard sleek/spiny body plan, but I want a chubby one. A big, sluggish, brutish, ugly one. The best bets I've found are the blue and white prepaint dragons that WOTC put out a while ago and GW's pre-hobbit LOTR dragon, but they just don't match what I want. Anyone here know of any? Bonus points* if its still regal and majestic while still being tons of fun. *I'll make two new forum accounts and like your post with them.

    Is it just me?

    Or does this figure have a bit of an uh... reach problem? I'm pretty sure arms are usually longer than this.

    Are these uh... legal...?

    http://www.pewterman...m/rawcliffe.htm I recently ran across this ancient, sketchy looking site that sells tons and tons pewter dragon figures - and couldn't help but notice some... erm... familiar faces... Just wanted to know if these guys are licensed to sell Reaper products/alert Reaper to the activity here. I'm not seeing any mention of the Reaper/DHL names, nor the names of artists such as Wiebe, Saunders, or Johnson. It's possible that these sculptors sold to more than one manufacturer, or I may more than likely be wrong in bringing these to attention, but something smells fishy in Pirate Town... Fishy as in "bought figures and glued fake gems into their eye sockets" type of fishy. >:T What's the deal with this? is this the wrong section for this? should I simply contact an admin like Brian or something?

  10. Hi all. It's been a long time since I've painted anything, and I'm used to just grabbing the essential colors and running with them. Now, though, I'm wanting to build a little collection of rather specialized minis. I need to know what specific Reaper paints would most convincingly recreate the color scheme of Bonemold Armor from the Elder Scrolls series. Pictures for reference purposes: Now, I was thinking a triad of Green Ochre, Faded Khaki, Palomino Gold and maybe a bright old reaper yellow called Sunlight or something, but I have no experience with these colors. I also don't have the best eye for color. I don't know how they'll look together, how they look when wet, or how they look dry. Are they good choices from your experiences with them (if you have had any), or can you recommend a better group of paints? Here are their reference pics: (now that I look at the last two, they're pretty same-y...) I'd like to stick to a small number of colors - four at the very most if possible. Many thanks.

    Time for a little bump, I think.

    That's a good idea, I'll have to get an extra or two to practice... I should have noted that the latter two minis going to be smooth(er), since they're in a different kind of armor. http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131221183140/elderscrolls/images/c/ce/OrdinatorMW.png I'll figure that out when the time comes. Maybe just delicate layering and washing.

    Tried it, didn't like it much. If there's a way to change the selection size for determining a palate I'll give it another shot, but I couldn't get anything really comprehensive out of it using its tiny tiny color finding square... Thank you, all the same.

    Hm, I could see that working as well... I was planning to do some EXTREMELY minimal drybrushing of a bright yellow for the highlights, but I think a white would be needed pretty badly for that crackly sheen. I don't know if I want something that dark brown/red in there, but it might provide a nicer contrast than a simple black or black-green undercoat and wash... I'm glad that you asked, because I love showing these things off and drawing potential business towards them... All four of them are made by Troll forged, and while there are others I have in mind including some Reapers, none of them are quite as bony or nearly so moldy. Forgive me Reaper, for I have sinned. Anyway, I like the sound of that, it's good to know and that specific yellow would make a great highlight. Certainly keeping this one in mind! Any more advice?

    Lets see what you know

    Bingo. http://www.oldgloryminiatures.com/proddetail.asp?prod=GB-05 Looks like some of Old Glory's barbarians to me. All from the same pack, even! First one should be bottom row + right, second is top row + right, and third is bottom + middle.

    I'm incredibly excited for us to unlock Proxyzilla, and I REALLY hope that everyone down at Reaper gets a nice, long, responsibility-less vacation before bones 3 starts. They really deserve it. <:<

    Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

    um.. I've been meaning to ask this for a while, and it's probably been asked before, but is the kickstarter's pledge money behind for anyone else? For me it's at $1,358,042. Shouldn't it be above $1,414,000 by this point? What's going on here? Is this a problem on my end?

    Maybe they'll give everyone a set of Bones jack-o'-lanterns as a completely free addon to get even more into the spirit of the season. :9

    I'm fine with seeing dragons showing up in this kickstarter because they're espensive as heck, but I have never liked this one and not even bones could make me. Nice try, Reaper. (I'm probably extremely late to this discussion. Let me make it up by saying the gopher centaur is awesome.)

    it's probably because of bias but these (the new villains) are the figures I'd pick out if someone told me to go through the entire Reaper selection and pick out the most flavorless sculpts. Looking forward to the next batch, I suppose. Sorry to poop on everyone eases' fun.
