I'm running Phandelver for our 8 year old, finally pressing some of my Bones into service (Kickstarters I and II, I believe) Currently working on outfitting a band of bandits for the Redbrand encounters. Plenty of suitable minis in my collection. I really like a lot of these, but I don't like that practically everybody is dual wielding, and I don't like a few of the poses, so I decided to try my hand at converting Bones. First one I was itching to get into was 77093 Drago Voss. Cut his right hand at the wrist and his left arm at the elbow. Idea was to rotate them and run some sort of polearm through. Pin vise with drill bit through the hands after cutting. First one was off center; I'll have to fix that with the Xacto. Second one I was really happy with -- bit almost didn't fit, but I managed to get it just through with all the fingers intact. I had some plastic rod I bought from my FLGS once upon a time. Seems to be smaller than 1/16, but it fits snugly in the hole my 1/16 bit put into the bonesium. So now the big question is what kind of pokey or smashy bit I put on Mr. Voss's long stick. Original plan was for a bardiche kind of thing with the blade behind him, but mocking it up makes it seem more like he might prefer to drive a spear into somebody. Opinions?
So here are four Bones minis my D&D group picked out for PCs. I have to say I agree that the soft details make Bones less than ideal for PCs and important NPCs. Good for mooks and big monsters, though. Anyways, here they are. I need to get some Testors Dullcoat; my current matte spray is too shiney on Bones. Too bad this figure was discontinued; maybe we'll see it in metal. The details were quite soft on this figure, but it came out OK. I started out painting the cloth on this dwarf in blue, but then saw that was what every version in the gallery had. So purple. This one looks more indigo in person. I think my camera must have some setting to shift away from violet. Need to fix the staff, too.
