  1. In the grand scheme of things, this Ogre Palace Guard proxy for Kings of War Vanguard turned out to be a Half-Ogre Fighter when I googled it. Number 4 on the Bones 4 core set graphic, but no official code as of yet. B4Core #4 The casual, brute strength on display straight-arming that shield like that! As you can see, I had problems with the gradient on the shield. Not really satisfied with that at all. He is about the size of an older style Ogre. I rebased him on a 40mm round I printed out. The armour is thick, and the shield is bro
  2. Late last year TTCombat, the wargaming supplies branch of Troll Trader, the large and successful British miniatures shop on Ebay, held a kickstarter campaign called "Halflings and Fantasy Friends". This campaign featured... well, Halflings for the most part (duh!) and also a buch of monsters. All in a cartoony style, in resin and all at suspiciously low prices for a large quantity of minis. As in £60 for over 100 models! In resin! (even though they are halfling sized, that still is insane pricing.) Since TTCombat is well known for making inexpensive but fair-to-good quality stuff (mo
  3. Your basic normal-sized wolf: And Black Panther. Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo. Wolf animal companion Big cat animal companion From the 77216 Animal Companions pack Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 core set Unknown Sculptor(s), although the wolf makes me think Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 25x50mm oval 3D printed lipped bases available from reapermini.com
  4. From the Bones 1 core set, a basic lizardman with typically primitive stone spear and turtle shell shield. This mini has good quality details, especially seeing as this is an early softish bones model. 77050 Lizardman Warrior Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Ben Siens Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  5. B4Core #20: Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe. I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS. Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister? I have cut off the integral bases, as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all
  6. B4core #1: This one was a bit of a struggle as I foolishly started from a black undercoat and later decided to do the tabard and shield in white. Bad Idea! Especially when I accidentally managed to paint a black line on the finished white shield....argh! seven coats of white later is can still be seen, albeit faintly. I am not entirely happy with the results around the sheild design, which ended up less sharp than I would like. This is also the same shield design as on the Bones 3 "crusaders" subset and also on Sir Justin Forscale, so apparently they are members of the same knigh
  7. The subset called "knights" in the Bones 4 core set. These are NPC or henchmen-types. Wait a minuite! Do I really think that just because they have covered faces? Dang! I chose to use plain white capes, loincloths and so forth as a common denominator, which let them all have their own individual livery colours. B4Core #57 B4Core #58 B4Core #59 B4Core #60 B4Core #61 At least the unarmoured fencing instructor has more than a stick this time arou
  8. Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set. click for close ups and all that
  9. Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals? These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously th
  10. I am the Lord of Darkness. I require the solace of the shadows, and the dark of the night. Sunshine is my destroyer. All this shall change. Tonight, the sun sets forever There shall never be another dawn! -- thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways. LEGEND, Tim Curry, as the Lord of Darkness, 1985 pics beneath the click
  11. I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world. Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever. The obligatory comparison shot. 77165 Hellakin Gorecutter, Halfling Rogue Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC. 25mm bespoke 3D printed round lipped base available from reapermini.com

  13. Another one of the half-painted minis on my painting station shelf, now done: Looks like she found a shining stone. Not sure if the OSL worked all that well on this mini. So a gnome is basically a hobbit with boots? From the first Bones kickstarter. 77167 Ingrid, Female Gnome Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Derek Schubert Bonesium PVC. 25mm bespoke 3D printed round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  14. Sadly I don't quite remember what paints were used, other than them being metallics... I suspect they might have been some of the Citadel paints I've picked up, since I wanted to try them out and see what my thoughts were on such paints. Done back in April, they've been sitting on the desk for, uhm, a while... >.>;;;; They were fun little robots to paint....
  15. This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014. "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King. A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other. I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blain
  16. Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all. They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.
  17. From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag: A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry. The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakk
  18. Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend. The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up... Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out. It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds. Hope you like it too!
  19. Formorian Giant aka The Great Mutato! (Did they spell Fomorian wrong on purpose? Fomorians being monstrous, supernatural creatures from the underworld of Irish mythology, much like the Jotun frost giants of Norse) From Bones 3 core set, this Chaos mutant thingy takes the medal for overtraining half of his body. I imagine his (her?) family tree is a straight line. 77416 Formorian Giant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  20. A more greek-inspired Minotaur than most others I have seen. So, bronze and leathers. Theseus channeling Conan. 77501 Minotaur Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Stoneskull expansion Sculpted by Chris Lewis Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  21. 77031 Cassie, Gnome Wizard Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012, Core set Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base available from reapermini.com
  22. Thank you @Xiwo Xerase for naming this mini. It is in the reapermini.com shop, turns out it just does not have "elf" as a search term... I thought this elf was female, but no. That is elves for you. In any case, gender really does not matter anyway for most things other than procreation. (edit: ze has swapped gender from metal version to the bones version, and is now sold as "Elf Heroine" in bones and "Vale Swordsman Elven Grunt" in metal.) Some Elf with a sword 77409 Fiara, Elf Heroine Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Werne
  23. Merisiel, Iconic Rogue from the Bones Pathfinder line, and the first Bones kickstarter. Soft bones, soft details pretty much sums it up. So this got a very quick paint job. Nothing to be especially proud of, but here it is. 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012, Pathfinder Iconics subset Sculpted by Patrick Keith Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base available from reapermini.com
  24. Adamantite Golem from the defunct Fantasy skirmish game Chronopia, from the end of the 1990s. Chronopia was produced by Target Games, who also made Warzone, and was in it's day the only company that might have given Games Workshop a run for the money. Not that the games sold anywhere near the levels of the GW games, but the style appealed greatly to fans of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k especially since the miniatures where made in the heroic scale that was comparable to GW minis of the day, Target was very aggressive at marketing towards independent game stores that needed something
  25. These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix). I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job. Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together. May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll. In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid. So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!
