  1. From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135. A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases. Click for more pics
  2. I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper ) But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos. This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield. ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter. Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even! I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that. I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys! B4Core #13 Champion of Chaos Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 40mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

    Maledrakh's 77329 Silver Dragon

    A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on. Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish. However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon. pics below the clicks
  4. For what it's worth, Bear's Head is on my (short) list of trusted Kickstarter creators. They have consistently delivered on time, with good communication and good quality products. I have backed several of their earlier campaigns and will back again. A+ I have also bought from their webshop, good comms and quick shipments. A+ again.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    By my reckoning, if they are to do translucent at all, it would be best in clear translucent and not green or any other colour. Clear gives the most flexibility: you can stain it to any colour you want and not be limited by the green of the material, and of course you can choose to paint it normally.

    Question of painting translucents?

    I find that the key to painting translucents are to use a clear varnish as primer so the following paints are not rejected by the plastic. then use transparent paints like inks, wash or clear-named paints. you can highlight parts of the minis with opaque paints by keeping to very thin coats and just on the very edges. Opaque paints will otherwise obscure the transparency and at the same time ruin the effects of the piece by jarring the impression. I recently did one of the green translucent bones, with both blue turquiose yellow and brown results: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86410-maledrakhs-77096-labella-demornay-banshee and yes, it is more or less the case to clear-varnish-as-primer and then use transparent washes. take care to avoid pooling and tidemarks and you are good to go. an early example using just a bit of opaques here and there: (sword and hand) also, note the gravestone is a part of the same mini and painted with opaques. https://themountainsofminis.com/2017/01/07/translucent-bones-the-grave-wraith/

    Boiling Poison Dice set

    even GW has been releasing novelty dice with strange shapes on them such as the squig dice and the nurgle dice, but still, they actually work. Working is key for dice. I have absolutely no use for a chronically cocked die.

    Boiling Poison Dice set

    you know, if they had tarted them up a bit, maybe some translucent colours with swirls, maybe painted the "bubbles" and made them actually look like "boiling poison" then maybe. just maybe. but like this? not for me. novelty dice do need a but more than just shape these days.

    Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood

    This is the kind of project where I would be all over the monsters, if they were available seperately or in a just the minis pledge. But as it stands it is far too expensive.

    Maledrakh's 77631 Vorvorlaka vampire

    This mini is called "Vorvorlaka" and is from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Graveyard expansion. I based it on a 30mm lipped base. The obligatory size comparisons... 77631 Vorvorlaka Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Graveyard expansion Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi 30mm base available from reapermini.com Here shown with Reaper 80068 Victorians and North Star's Pulp Heroes: The Film Crew sculpted by Bob Murch click the pic to enlarge
  12. Two out of three "Victorians" .These are from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Mythos expansion, and called "Victorians". The colour schemes are inspired by the "town walk" outfits of Mina and Vlad in 1992 movie Bram Stoker's Dracula. ...and for some reason these are in a smaller scale than most other reaper minis. 80068 Victorians Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Mythos expansion Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi 25mm 3D printed bases available from reapermini.com

    Everybody keeps calling those most excellent Hagravens for Harpies for some reason.

    also, if it is bones black it helps if you heat the part before cutting, which will allow you to slice cleanly and easily. Room temperature bones black is very hard to cut without a saw, at least when thicker than a a few mm.
