  1. While I love the Mossbeard Treeman figure from the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it always bothered me a little that his arms, as sculpted, grew from narrower at the shoulder to thicker at the wrist. This just looked unnatural to me since both branches and arms tend to grow from thicker at the shoulders to thinner near the ends. So this week I began working n revering his arms, so they would connect to his body in a more natural, to my eye, arrangement. I began by slicing off the existing external connector pegs. This was made easier by soaking them in boiling wa
  2. Is there a conversion chart somewhere or a list of colors for the HD lines and how they map to the 'new' Bones HD line replacement? I am trying to compare colors and all charts online utilize the HD line and not sure how I can tie in the HD line with the Bones HD lines which I have. This is the conversion chart I am using and as you can see there is only the HD line. So trying to figure out which of the Bones HD to substitute in. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xl-x9eW3bLw5eqDeNUG2JUwn2EZwn34TDKfNIg5uul4/edit#gid=8 Thanks all for your input. Rea
  3. I started this conversion a loooong time ago for a friend who needed a dorf with an axe, and I did not at the time have a dorf with an axe. I was never quite happy with it, and the game died quickly. I forgot all about this little guy until recently, and I decided to finish him, and queue him up for the paints. I initially started with a clay weapon sculpt, but while I was fiddling with it it broke. In a fit of rage I cut a piece of aluminum stock and after a few hours of shaping we got here. I did a bit more shaping after this photo, and I plan on doing a bit of Apoxie Sculpt to blend in wher
  4. Converted Gregor the Wizard, who is a druid type character, well wrapped up with a bird as a familiar. I thought the model would look good as a female character and the way the coat bunches up means that a conversion looks OK, in my view. I just cut off the head with a razor saw and swapped it with a reaper bones head for Drys the Dryad. I just stuck it straight onto a blob of green stuff. I didn't need to do much texturing because the beard on the original male model just looks like a scarf following the sawing. The mittened hand holding the bird just got accidentally bent back wh
  5. Pulled from some Iron Winds Metal random bins at a con, it's a combination of a Ral Partha Nightmare and the wings of a Blue Dragon. Enjoy!
  6. So I've been at grandma's after new year's eve and found a bunch of these metal kinder surprise toys. Scale-vise they are around 28mm heroic, so I've decided to give them a quick speedpaint, using some dollar-store acrylic paint and brushes :D, I wonder if they will look any good on the table during play :) Next to a bones orc
  7. Dark Heaven Legends Thelgar Halfblood 03197 converted using greenstuff and warhammer bits. Painted and used as a pc in my dnd campaign :D
  8. For the converters, a demonstration of making an extremely sharp knife (for use by a lego person) from an oyster shell. This guy makes knives out of everything, including tomatoes. Yes, tomatoes. This one just happens to be minis-sized. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FyIS0k_ozQ&fbclid=IwAR1bu6ZMNjptwzs0hBydi9fSVStA3O2OmBm3CkQ003w0vvUdaZ7hgdRGYn0
  9. This is a conversion of the dark elf figure Aundine (14089 in the Warlord line) to represent my latest Pathfinder character, a changeling (orphan of a sea hag mother and a human father) with water-related magic and some rogue abilities. You can see the WIP thread here. I spent about 6 hours on prep & conversion & basing, and about 5 hours priming & painting. This will be a literal "tabletop mini", so I didn't spend the time to get very smooth blends, but it is still much more than a speedpaint. I took especial care on the face and had fun with her shiny "eelskin" ar
  10. This is the miniature for my character in my current home game, the "Ruins of Azlant" Pathfinder Adventure Path. My character is a changeling (child of a sea hag), a spellcaster with an affinity for water and also some rogue abilities. She presented herself as a human rogue for the first few sessions, but couldn't keep the secret forever. We have finished 2 of the 6 books, playing about twice a month. I was using an elf mini from my collection as a stand-in, but I knew I wanted to paint a mini specific to the character. She wears a suit of magical eelskin leather arm
  11. Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it. A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wiel
  12. I have a ridiculously long running project that I work on when I have the whim. I have been using Eldar guardian arms, weapons, and helmets with the old jetbike rider leather jacket torso and high elf archer legs to create Eldar Corsairs. I'm hoping that starting a thread will motivate me to get back to this but if nothing else I'm pretty happy with the conversions so at least others can see them. Here's the first batch of pics (this is the ones I happen to already have pictures for).
  13. Some of you are old enough to remember the old Dungeons and Dragons toy line from way back when. In that toy line, they featured an evil fighter named Warduke. He also made one appearance in the cartoon, and was given stats (more than once) for use in the pencil and paper RPG. I have decided to make/convert a copy of him for myself. This is who I'm talking about for those that don't know, or remember: He got brought back for 3.0 or 3.5 edition D&D, too: Now, that's some pretty cool artwo
  14. This past week I decided to paint the Kristianna figure from the Bones 2 "Heroes I" set. I had recently seem someone post online somewhere (was it here?) some figures they had done with the clear weapons from Bones 3 weapon sprues; where they had painted parts of the clear piece, and left others see-through; and I had decided I wanted to try something similar with this figure. I'm really happy with the results. For the full conversion and painting article, please see my blog: Kristianna Conversion
  15. So, after indulging in the metal trade at Reapercon this year I found myself going through my stores of salvaged miniatures and putting together various bits and pieces. I tend to save a lot of scraps and fragments of figures in my spare parts bin (or drawer, rather) which I think may be useful for something someday or other, and after pouring the lot of it out and sifting through it I realized that I have accumulated an awful lot of this sort of thing, and it was high time I did something with it. After messing around and experimenting for a couple of hours I came away with a pro
  16. So here are a few of the Bones weapon sprue conversions I've done. 14069 Sir Malcolm, metal figure, opaque gray hammer. (Please forgive the chipped paint; this one has been done for a while and used in games.) 77413 Margara, Bones figure, clear red hammer. 77417 Ivar, Bones figure, clear red hammer. As a side note to anyone who is looking to paint this figure, the detail on the chain mail is very shallow. And a Wizards of the Coast Renegade Warlock, plastic figure, clear
  17. The clay golem. So overmuscled! So cantankerous-looking! So versatile for conversions! It's probably cliche at this point, thinking this guy would make a great Edward Hyde. But that doesn't make it wrong! Some green stuff tatters, a grommet, and a pin, and here we are. Look at that savage hairy-knuckled brute! For my Western game, set in the 1870s-ish, I made a spinoff cleric-like class, the Sawbones, for healers that prefer Mad Science to religion; people like Dr. Moreau, or Dr. Jekyll, or Dr. Frankenstein, or Dr. Herbert West. The 59009 lady scientist is the mini my Sawbones player u
  18. 60005: Arael, Half Elf Cleric sculpted by Gene Van Horne
  19. So I had an occasion to create a new D&D character after a brief hiatus from playing, and I wound up rolling a half orc ranger named Logar Quickarrow, a vociferously proud member of the Bison Clan. Naturally, being the conversion obsessed sort of person I am, I was obliged to fabricate a proper miniature for him. I apologize for a few slightly blurry pictures, as I'm still trying to get used to my current camera (which is cleverly hidden inside my phone). After canvassing Reaper's catalog for half orcs and various iterations thereof, I quickly decided that Skreed Gorewillow b
  20. I grabbed this guy out of the bag of Bones and couldn't tell what it was without my glasses. All I could tell was that it was a big muscley guy, and I thought it would make a good earth golem to go with the stone golem I was painting. So I put primer on it, and was a little surprised when I put on my glasses to paint it. Whatever. A little flock covered all the obvious scars and stitches. I'm very happy with it.
  21. Recently finished this for @Kangaroorex had a lot of fun playing with the spring theme and a monster. Also first time I've tried to build a flower (wire with paper wrapping for leaves, heavier paper for flower itself, and magicsculpt for some of the other details). Mama Werecroc with baby Croc, watering a swampflower.
  22. This past week I finished up the Shipwreck Revenant from Bones 3. I converted it to have figurehead on the front, made from the Bones 3 Succubus Queen figure, instead of the "face" piece that comes with the model. For anyone who would like to read the Conversion thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75736-shipwreck-golem-with-sophies-mom-figurehead-conversion/ For anyone who would like to see the Work in Progress painting thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75885-painting-my-converted-shipwreck-revenant-photo-heavy/
  23. No, not the ever lovin' blue eyed Ben Grimm. Not John Carpenter's horrific alien beast, either. (Although, there is a certain resemblance....) No, this abomination was made at Reapercon last year. I plan on fixing it up and entering it in the open category at the coming Reapercon. This is what it looked like when I got home from the 'con. And this is what it looks like now: I still like the other head idea, and may revisit that sometime in the future, but for now, I like this one bet
  24. It's been far, far too long since I sat down and painted a mini. Too many other life priorities. But anyways... So, I painted a Sisters of Battle terminator, and I decided I wanted her as a mini. Games Workshop does not sell SoB terminators. And so began my long conversion process, spending far too much money on bits for a model that probably can't be ever fielded. A ton of plasticard cementing, ProCreate sculpting, and general hackery later, I came out with this. Proportions are somewhat wonky, but I think they're beyond my capability to fix short of sculpt
  25. Over on the Ghost Archipelago thread in the Fantasy forum, I posted about a toy-elephant head I glued to a Bones Bugbear to make a creature called an Eritherean, which is featured in the Bestiary for those rules, and is essentially an elephantman. This led to a long discussion, and the inevitable gluing of the spare Bugbearhead to the Elephant's body. It also made me realize how addictive head-swapping is, and since it was beginning to derail the Ghost Archieplago thread, I thought I'd open a new thread here for everybody to share any head-swapping projects they were doing.
