  1. One of the very fun things at Reapercon was the VCR Challenge. Noel (GuyWithCoolBackpack) has posted some photos that include shots of the challenge in progress and on display. Basically, we were handed a few old bits of electronica, some screwdrivers, and some minis. This is what I made. The mini is the bones version of the sweeping lady from #2825 Townsfolk, and the base is the laser apparatus from a DVD player. When I saw the mini, I knew I needed a lens for her to clean, so I was glad to see the DVD player in the pile. I painted her in a little over an hour, which is why I'm quite plea
  2. Here are the Bones Minotaur: and rats: and something not Bones, but with lots of boney spines:
  3. Hi all, Trying to get my current backlog I brought with me to NY painted down so that I am ready for the Bones stuff incoming sometime in June I expect. First up Barrow Wights! Manufacturer: Games-Workshop System: Lord of the Rings Scale: 25mm
  4. Trying this out. I ordered a vampire and 1 case, and recieved them on the 11th of April. I havnt painted in deccades, but here are what I have done so far. It takes me about 2 hours to paint 2.5 mini's faster for kobolds. any suggestions welcome
  5. Last night a box of Bones from the Kickstarter arrived at my door, I was so excited until I read who it was addressed to. It turns out a friend of mine sent his Bones to me because he was moving to Russia. So now I have this box sitting on a table that I can't open. My orders has a bunch of extras, I guess his didn't, that's why I got his first. Who knows when mine will show.... so tempting... ~ S ~
  6. Hey everyone, I'm going to make cards for all the characters and monsters from the Bones Kickstarter as I paint them. Here are some prototypes I have mocked up in preparation. If you could give some critique on layout and colors (illustrations are not done by me) - that would be great. Here are monster card mockups.
  7. So, since the start of the month I've been obsessively checking the forums for news on the Bonenami. I've been checking here, on the Kickstarter page, on Dakkadakka, and the forum where I first heard of the Kickstarter. I've ordered figures from Reaper so I'll have something to do, which lead to ordering the Learn to Paint Kits to get some paints ahead of the oncoming wave, just so I'd have something to distract myself. I'm constantly hitting F5 waiting for news that shipping has started, or that Bryan has been crushed under an avalanche of Kaladraxii, or that the Vampires have arisen from
  8. Hi there. Thought I would post a couple of pics of my first ever Bones figure, an Ogre, for C&C from the comunity. The skin tone is an experiment and I am not sure that it isn't too dark red. Anyone any suggestions on painting ogre fingernails? Still got the highlighting of the details along with various brass and bronze bits.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for miniatures for players and NPC's (humans, half-elves, elves, dwarves, halflings, the occasional half-orc). I play both D&D and Pathfinder, on either a 1" grid or a 1" hex. Reaper's Pathfinder miniatures will, obviously, suit my purpose. My question is, can I mix them with miniatures from the warlord set and the bones set? I'm guessing their relative sizes will be correct, because they are all a 25mm scale. But will their bases fit together on the 1" grid/hex? Sorry if this has been asked before, I could not find an answer. Cheers, Barak.
  10. I'm not the best photagrapher (or painter), but here is myy collection of Reaper Bones so far: Not shown are a few from the 2012 Origins paint and take.
  11. Here's my take on the bugbear. This is my first real re-basing attempt. In the past, I have done some really minor basing onto square tiles, but I spent quite a bit more time on this one. I cut off most of the broccoli base, and glued him to a Proxie Model circular base. I used some modeling paste to fill in the base, and then various ballasts for texture. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, although I learned a lot for future attempts; most notably, base a few models at the same time, should speed the process up quite a bit. This is also the first time I have tried
  12. In this thread, Reaperbryan mentioned that he was having trouble getting detail when photographing the translucent Bones figures. I made some suggestions there, but I decided to do a few experiments, and this thread is the result. Principles: Transparent and translucent subjects are a bit tricky to photograph. There's an old adage* in photography that, "Light reveals; shadows define". Translucents under even light have almost no shadows, so there is no definition and thus no detail. In many ways this is similar to painting OSL or NMM. You need to put light where you need it for highlights wit
  13. This is my first attempt at painting a Bones figure. I admit that I chickened out and did a light spray of white primer on the model before painting. Painting this figure has been a pleasure (especially with the light weight). I haven't noticed any drop off in quality, difficulty of painting, or and special care that I needed to engage...as compared to a metal Reaper model. I like using trolls in and around swamp terrain so I painted him with that motif, and I took the time to base him properly before posting pics this time. :) DISCLAIMER: The right hand (over his head) IS in fact
  14. While I still wait for my kickstarter Bones to arrive, I got a chance to pick up a free Bones ghost at a paint-and-take at MAG-con last weekend. I was inspired to do a greenish color scheme by Paizo/Wizkid's Festering Spirit. I was only able to get as far as base-coating him with a yellow-green mix at the con before I had to rush off to GM my assigned slots. I had real problems with the paint sticking to the mini, probably as a result of not having a chance to wash it prior to painting. After the con, I took him home and gave him a bit of a wash, followed by a second base-coat of darke
  15. So I just got my Reaper Bones Vampire-level in the mail maybe two hours ago, and I wanted to ask some questions to members who have perhaps worked with this plastic before. My modeling experience is mainly Games-Workshop. I guess the most urgent question I have to ask is this: A large portion of the miniatures that I received (25% +/-) are kind of warped; I know this plastic is a soft medium, and all that good stuff, so I wanted to know how to bend things back into place, and have them become more rigid. Should I immerse them in hot water, bend them, then immerse them in cold water, or w
  16. The more I look at Nethyrmaul, the more the composition of the figure impresses me. https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/sku-down/77190 The whole structure, down to the curl of the tail, is a work of art in itself. In the store photo it looks reminiscent of Stephen Hickman's book covers, of something Art Nouveau. There are a lot of minis that do the job, that serve as placeholders for characters or monsters or what have you. Julie Guthrie's sculpture holds together as an interesting artwork in its own right.
  17. As with many, I've recently fallen off the wagon after roughly 15 years of ignoring miniature painting, due mostly to the Bones Kickstarter, but also due to my gaming group's renewed interest in Warhammer Quest. Anyway, I've just started to take pictures, my picture rig is literally a few pieces of plasticard, my painting light, my phone's camera, and a couple of filters on photobucket. I've tried not to alter things too much electronically, but somethings definitely need "restored" when using a phone for pictures... First up, one of my first NMM attempts (just the silver armor and sw
  18. Reaperbryan posted this on another thread, but I thought it might get buried and hard to find.
  19. Here is one of three of my orcs that I am working on. Hello, Gorgeous! I'm thinking on the next one I'll paint the skin a lighter grey and the last one will be a lighter grey but with a touch of green.
  20. So I was looking at what all came with my pledge, again, and some of the other add ons, and a thought came to me. Will some of the sets e available in the store the way they are in the kickstarter? I'm sure some like 'here be dragons' will of course be separate, but what of the golems or the townsfolk sets?
  21. http://www.kickstart...n-of-gaming-min This is for questions, comments, excitement, clarification, and general discussion.
  22. Alright, since people in other topics have been mildly interested, figured I might as well post up the finished figure. I've been trying to write a number of "How-I-Paint" articles for Cool Mini or Not, which morphed into making YouTube videos of the entire painting process. So, should you wish, you can follow my entire paint job ( ). Below you see Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome. As a metal figure, I used her as a stand-in for the Kickstarter Bones' version of her. I limited myself to the first paint set that was offered up as an add-on, so there were only 12 paints for me to choose, resulting
  23. Hi I'm looking forward to my KS Bones, they are going to be great for my Pathfinder campaign with my kids. Reviewing the KS (still amazed as to how many coming), can anyone recommend a decent easy skirmish game I can run for the kids 6&8 using the KS bones, probably focused on Pirates? Thanks
  24. The past couple of years, the folks at Comicpalooza here in Houston have been trying to get me to bring my dungeon crawl over for their con. Unfortunately, it usually falls around the last weekend of May, which meant that it has usually followed ReaperCon by just a few scant days. Now, Terri is fairly supportive of my gaming, but even I'm not dumb enough to try back-to-back weekends like that. This year, however, ReaperCon is a month earlier, so I agreed to run the crawl at Comicpalooza. It falls over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be running the crawl 3 slots on Saturday (bascially all day l
