  1. Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba...ba. ba..............Ba, ba, ba, ba.......ba Edit: I revisited him recently, touched him up, revised the water effects and took some better quality photos. This is an example of what the pics and paint job looked like before:
  2. So, in anticipation of my Kickstarter Bonenami arriving SoonTM, I decided to start my own WIP thread, even though I currently only have one Bones mini to my name. I decided to get a bugbear as my practice mini, (my tiny FLGS only had about 5 Bones to choose from :/ ), just to see what I was in for and familiarize myself with filing, boiling, painting and stripping paint, etc. These first three pics are of him straight out of the package. Needs boiling, obviously: He also looks like he was the victim of a botched beheading: Lastly, the straps that are supposed to be holding his shield to his arm are, instead, only attached to his arm. While I could forgive maybe one strap in this condition, all four attachment points are currently floating and it just looks silly: (edit: I retroactively took this picture after doing some work, in case you noticed that his neck looks better now. I'll detail more in my next post) Clearly, he's gonna need some work before I even think about touching paint, so it looks like I chose a good one for learning on! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Hi guys. I recently got back into making mini's. My first one is making a Dwarf Fighter for my DnD RP Sessions. The problem I'm having is, I don't know where to start. I have a basic idea on what I want, but I just, can't push forward with it. Do you guys have any suggestions on how I should approach this and where I can start? I'll even take suggestions on what to do. I'm just to frustrated to think. Any help or tips you guys give me is much appreciated. Thank you. P.S. Here are a couple of photo's of what my mini looks like.
  4. Here are the results of my Metal vs. Bones paint off. Both figures were painted simultaneously using the exact same mix of colors; I basically went back and forth. I alternated which version I started/ended painting particular sections, so that neither got any favoritism with regards to order of painting. I didn't agonize over making things as perfect as I'd like; ego wasn't the point of this experiment. You'll note the one difference with respect to customization is the freehand inside the robe. I assumed that my freehand skills wouldn't allow me to replicate the same pattern on both figures, so I just followed my 'feeling' as I worked. I do hope that this one difference doesn't give any Bones naysayers ammunition to try and invalidate the experiment. I am in no way affiliated with Reaper. So there you have it, which version is which version?
  5. http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47374-p-65-heavy-metal-miniatures-line-canceled/ I guess I'm not astonished. While cheaper than the lead-free pewter minis, the lead minis are still dealing with hazardous substances. And as far as cheaper than pewter alternatives go, it looks like Bones have lead beat all hollow.

    will get some pictures up of him by himself later. this is a little size comparison for you guys, with a bones orc archer, my ogre chief Half Lived and Nagash
  8. Came across this little guy today. he's been struggling along for a while now, but his designs are really very interesting and are quite good. He has sculpts of almost everything he's listing here (all but a few stretch goal minis are depicted). His prices are a bit on the higher end (since a lot of his little guys are quite small looking), but this guy is basically starting from scratch, so it's understandable with his current situation. Currently, the batch prices are: $53 gets you "All the Little Guys" - This includes: 3 Floating Eyes, 3 Phlemf, 1 of each of all 3 Peepers, a Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing, a Lensman (my personal favorite design), and a Gauth. Also, a not-beholder pin/earring $200 gets you "All the Big Guys" - This includes: 1 Tentacle Hulk, 1 Huge Alibeth, 1 Doomkiss Eye Abberrant, and 1 DeepMother $250 gets you "Get it all" - This includes: All of the above. His next 2 stretch goals are only $500 and $1000 dollars away, and each adds 1 mini to the "All the Little Guys" and "Get it all" rewards Now, there is a risk since he is brand new and untested, but I figured some of you guys might like what he's offering! http://www.kickstart...r-miniatures-se ETA: Frankthedm informed me of the depth at which the miniatures were copied from WoTC's monsters. I've included a copy-paste of Sean K. Reynolds' response to this KS. Pledge at your own risk.
  9. I've been painting a little while and have a few metallic paints, both Reaper and GW. Any way, I was blown away by the miniature pictured next to Julie Guthrie's shark greens. Specifically, the miniature's helmet looks so shiny you could shave in the reflection. These photos inspired me to experiment with media and varnish. I came up with a medium that is 2 parts Liquitex Gloss Medium, 1 part Winsor and Newton Flow Improver and 1 part water. This I mixed 1 for 1 with my metallic paints. Then I experimented with various varnishes and found Liquitex Hi-Gloss Varnish to be pretty nice. Still, I doubt I'll get anything as shiny as the mini in those photos. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if that was that one of Julie's figs next to the sharks, or did somebody else paint the knight in question? I've reposted the photo here for ease of reference.
