  1. On the larger figures, like the dragons, how rigid are they, assuming some are in house by now? My main concern is for Wyrmgear, as I've got plans.... It's legs don't look overly massive, especially the front one, so how much beyond it's own mass can it handle before things start to bend? I'm looking at doing a diorama involving metal figures with Bones, and wondering if I'm going to need to look at reinforcing Wyrmy. You can feel free to use Gnomes (the traditional metal Gnome, not the new fangled metric Bones Gnome) as a standard measure :)
  2. Here's my entry for the winter wonderland single mini. The Bones really do hold detail well. Once I got a good base coat on him, the shading was just like on a metal mini. The paint still has a tendency to become shiny. Having the ability to move and manipulate the wings is really nice. The colors are pure white, sapphire blue, vallejo dark grey and blue-green. No metallics were harmed during the making of this Bones mini! I made the base out of sculpey and that long grassy stuff from scene-o-rama. I don;t like how the thin glazes got chalky, but I'll just be more patient in the future. He's for a gaming session this weekend, so I was on a time crunch.
  3. it was a cold wet and dreary day today, so I decided to go out and hit the local game shops, I wanted to get a bottle of Armypainter's soft tone ink anyway. Stop #1 had a nice collection of bones on the wall, and there was the great worm. Ive seen all the great variants done here so I figured I would give it a try. This is also the first bones I have painted (Im not counting the kobold I painted at ReaperCon last year at a speed paint) Colors were inspired off of the sandworm in FF XI EDIT: Lowered the brightness on the pics, they were washed out a bit
  4. Was there ever a list compiled of all of the miniatures in all of the sets for the Bones Kickstarter? I remember on the kickstarter site someone had links to a site that showed larger views of figures using the metal versions but I don't recall if it had names... I've been trying to get my miniatures database up to date in preparation of the massive pile of Bones coming, so today I thought that maybe I could get all the Bones data in in advance. But so far my searches haven't found much.
  5. Hi All, I've been a big fan of Reaper Minis for most of my role playing career. I created a Kickstarter to get my very own RPG produced and Reaper Mini has agreed to provide the minis! w00t! If you're a fan of tabletop RPG's and you're also stoked about the new Bones set check out my Kickstarter! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1711283738/worra-realms-fantasy-rpg Thanks! -Chris
  6. This was supposed to be done as part of the community ogre thread, but paining time has been scarce and took me 4 months to get it done. Working with bones has been interesting. This is my first mini since I stopped painting 6-7 years ago, and had to adjust what few things remembered to the bones. Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. I've been following the forum since the KS, and it's been incredibly useful, so thanks to all! Comment, criticisms, etc are welcome!
  7. So here are the Bones Orc swordsmen (77019), which are the last of my bones orcs (untill Boneami arrives). And here is the last missing spearman (Bones 77003) that I had blamed the cats for stealing. He was in fact hiding behind some other minis on the shelf. Since he was late to the party he got the bent bronze spear.... And here is the whole tribe (can you find Waldo the warrior?) Fun group to paint, I am sure they will harass adventurers for a long time.
  8. Finished this guy on Friday. Was practicing some of the techniques I learned in LTPK1 earlier in the week with the Anhurian Knight. Finally learning to do shading with something other than quickshade ;-) C&C welcome.
  9. Practicing different techniques for the Dragon challenge..
  10. This is the first thing I have painted since November. Every time I paint a bones I like them more. I am no fan of priming and I really like how they take craft paint. The camera jammed during this photo session (E18, again!) so they aren't the best photos. Happy (Late) New Year and feedback appreciated. Cheers.
  11. Here's my version of Flit. I decided to make a scenic base, before the 'Winter Wonderlands' painting competition was announced. In the dead of night at work, I thought that a simple cut and reglue of Flit's hand would make it seem like he's cupping and the idea of him snatching at a water pool formed in my head. I'm consistently amazed at the quality of the Bones line, and their ability to take paint. I hope you enjoy!
  12. So I started this a couple of days before Christmas and I was racking my head over how to get a good stoney look for my new friend and i remembered a trick i accidentally learned from the l2pk. I primed the mini with reaper brush on primer and the washed the crap out of it with black ink the combination of the ink and primer gives a great stone effect imo, my only thought is that the body held on to the ink more than i wanted and so it's a hair darker than the wings. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8327302852/'> I will see about getting some decent pictures up tonight.
  13. Ok finally finished this miniatrue, he's painted quickly aiming for tabletop standard only. In the end I did paint a bit more detail than I had originally intended but he hasn't had the level of attention most of the character models I've done recently have recieved. He was rebased onto a Back-2-Base-ix 25mm Celtic Ruins base as part of an early experiement in finding out how hard that would be (easy it turns out).
  14. this is a highlight test mini, there's a Lot of shadow on the underside of the mini and I went over the raised areas with 2/1/1 matt medium stuff / base color / lighter shade. I didn't shade most of the lower left leg as it's sticking out from under his body. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270835110/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270835576/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8269773221/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270839324/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8269774683/'>
  15. so March for me is going to contain: 1.should have my tax returns. 2. Bones should be starting to ship out(depends on the customs). 3. the archangel should be out by PP. 4. It is my 32nd birthday. i have a feeling i will be swimming in miniatures.
  16. This is actually the first bones mini I've painted. I got him quite some time ago, converted his sword using the chained weapons pack, and then let him sit around for a loooong time. He stood on my desk near my monitor during the kickstarter so I could hold him up to the screen and zoom in or out until the image of him on my screen matched his size in my hand, just so I could squee over an ACTUAL SIZE Nethyrmaul. Good times. Now, he's been painted and will fall in battle many times to my Eberron PCs as a mook of the Emerald Claw. Quite the shift in fate for him, I suppose, but an honorable series of occupations nonetheless. This was a fast paint for me, only about 2.5 hours. The blending on his back is kinda jagged, but I'm happy with his metals and shield. Not my best freehand work, but it does cover up those silly Crusaders symbols. I mentioned in another thread, I'm impressed with the non-primer of this material. Really fun little mini! Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome.
  17. So recently my girl ordered some miniatures for campaigns that are being run and I had the opportunity to grab two purple worms. Bones that is. Finally I got my hands on some of those :D I was quite bouncy. I tried out a whole bunch of different paints. Some stuck, some didnt (washes obviously didnt work without some form of base coat/dulle coat), and that took me quite a bit. After all of that I decided to do some paintjobs I was actually happy with. With all the amazingly inspiring paintjobs on the forum (I particularly like the lavaworm, the swamp worm and the (what I have come to call) 'worm in a wheatfield' worm). One of my worms will be a 'dungeon worm' later on, but for now I add to the list the 'frost worm', also known as a good excuse for me to get snow flock. :) (The head is ever so slightly out of focus, probably due to the size of the miniature. If there is a good fix for that, please. My camera is not that top of the line though.)
  18. Hi - Will the large bones minis, such as the dragons, etc, come as multipart models - or in one piece? Also, can you give us an idea when the updated Vampire level picture will be posted? I've loved the updated Bones pictures -- and look forward to seeing more! Thanks, Liverpuncer
  19. Wyrmgear is the large new steampunk dragon to be released as part of the Bones Kickstarter of 2012. http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/77177 It's a pretty fun figure, a Victorian-style mechanical dragon. Elsewhere people have been discussing how they plan to paint and decorate it when it arrives as part of the Bones Kickstarter next spring. While musing over decorating approaches I recalled a source I found of masses of teeny-tiny watch gears and parts. http://www.amazon.com/Lisa-Pavelka-2-Ounce-Crafting-Silver/dp/B0053GA0DI They are dismantled watch innards sold by the half-ounce for jewelry crafts. These are random assortments, but they usually include a lot of gears and some oddly shaped bits (not watch hands, generally). The scale of the parts is very small. In fact, some of the Amazon reviewers complained (rightly, I think) that the parts were too small for most jewelry applications. Which makes them the perfect scale for minis (Well, large minis like the dragon. They are probably still too big on average for human-sized minis.). I got some and I think the smallest gear in the assortment I got was 1mm across. I think 1/2" is about the biggest size gear I saw, although there occasionally may be parts up to 3/4". The watch parts are sometimes a bit tarnished or with some patina. I trust this will not put people off what really is a very useful gear and bits assortment for steampunk minis conversion.
  20. testing some new paint flat black paint i picked up today for painting a mini for one of my players and working on drybrushing also. I suppose the base could be considered to have some nudity >,> so http://flic.kr/p/dwPQ3g http://flic.kr/p/dwVjzS I realize the tombstone and base Don't exactly match up but I got bored today and wanted to do a mini start to finish.
  21. As part of this weekend's speed painting endeavours I finished the 2nd and 3rd of my Bones Bugbears. The first one got a Back-2-Base-ix Celtic Ruins base and as I didn't want to rebase these two I gave one red trims and the other blue. Painting approach; No Undercoat Basecoat in appropriate colours, Saphire Blue, Blood Red, Oiled Leather, Russet Brown, Shadowed Steel, Mahogany Brown, Tanned Shadow. Wash the whole mini with Black Wash. Retouch the Shadowed Steel to get some sharper highlights. Apply highlights of Tanned Shadow, Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight to skin. Paint nails and teeth as you do the skin starting with Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight & final highlight with Linen White. Paint eyes with Linen White, Pure Black and outline with Mahogany Brown. Drybrush Hair areas Intense Brown. Paint base green and edge pure black, flock. Seal (to be done this evening now that I have enough models to make it worth doing). This takes about 2 hours (plus drying time) to do, adding another model or two to that process wouldn't slow it down noticeably. The slowest process is the base coat and skin just due to the paint changes and the care it takes to get paint in only particular spots.
  22. Btw I did remember to dust the kilt off before sealing this litter bugger :p
  23. This might have been answered earlier (I looked but couldnt find anything) i recently got some new bones and i threw afew of them in boiling water while soft i put them in the stance I wanted, then I put them in a bowl of ice water and put it in the freezer for a few hours. I thought it had worked perfectly but after left out for a day they just go back to normal. My question is how do you change the stance of bones for good?
  24. Just got my Sophie, comes in six parts: front wheel, front of bike, back of bike, Sophie's main body, and the two wings - should be easy to green stuff in the wing slots if you just want a "biker girl." Model looks great, but there is a fairly large gap where the wheel part meets the front of the bike part that will need some green stuff to fill in so that the tire segments line up correctly. The model can stand without a base even if you use just the bike and Sophie body without wings (but the wings help). You might need to gently push the handle bars around a bit to get Sophie into the proper seating position. Overall, a great model, can't wait to start painting it! Here is a size comparison:
