  1. I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Grinding through the Bones 4 core set, we have reached the last two dozen....and a full dozen of those are kobolds! Soon there will be less than 10 left! Today I did the Ape Attack! subset I chose to go different paths with each of them. These are so big, I think they are more useful as individuals than as a team. After all, there is only so much you can to with three giant apes, one of which that for some reason seems to have joined the Roman legions. And I was not kidding when I said they were giant apes: They are twice the height of a man, and what looks like ten times the mass. #83: The Great White Ape Drybrushed from black with a series of offwhites, ochre, beige and greys, and a couple of skin tones on the nekkid flesh. This one does double duty as an abominable snowman. 40mm base. #84: The Barlgura A barlgura is a D&D chaotic evil demonic creature of the Abyssal plane. Described as semi-intelligent and brutally violent, looking like an eight foot tall blue-skinned Orangutan with wickedly sharp claws. The model is of a much larger Gorilla...Well... close enough. Let's just call him King Louie and leave it at that. "Oobee-doo! I wanna beat up you-oo-oo!" 50mm base #85: Ingkay Ongkay "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." (Gladiator, 2000) So, Reaper...Pray tell. What is it I am not familiar with here? In what context might I need a giant romanesque-armoured gladius-wielding ape exactly? 50mm base. #83, #84, #85 the Ape Attack! subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 40mm and 50mm bases should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones. Bones 4 core set: 143/163 just 20 to go!
  2. The "pictures or it never happened"picture: The entire Bones 4 core set completed. 163 minis, including a few scenery bits, some chibis and a great big Dragon. All for a hundred bucks. Plus shipping, fees and taxes. So maybe around 200 bucks for me then. Still a massively good deal. Not pictured are also two different bags of bases that I did not use, and 4 more of each of the pillar toppers that were included in the set. Ah, the quiet satisfaction of completing a project. *Achievement unlocked* so, onto the next. Onwards and upwards! Which of the expansions to do first, then?
  3. So we are nearing the end of the road. This is the very last of the 163 miniatures in the Bones 4 Core set! Last but not least! Or more accurately, Last and the largest by far! Who am I? I am known as Millstone Shover, Barrel Drinker, Demon Rider and Camel Puncher! But I am no one when compared to you, O Gauth the Magnificent! Gauth the Golden! Gauth the Tremendous! Gauth the Unassessably Wealthy! Gauth the Mighty! Gauth the Terrible! Gauth the Stupendous! Gauth the Tyrannical! Gauth the Impenetrable! Gauth the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities! Gauth the Does Not Fit In Standard Shelving! Tommy Too Tall here is about 27cm / over 10 inches tall! I made him a 125mmx100mm base to keep him stable. I had some drooping woes that I have documented in my fixing Droopy The Dragon post back in November of last year. I can categorically and firmly state that the fixes have ....worked! Gauth has been standing tall and proud these last few months with no sign of any renewed droopage. I experimented with removing the knee-brace for a while, but then he sorta slumped, so I put it back. Painting: Black undercoat. Scalecolor Navy Blue all over. When dry, I drybrushed the green parts with Citadel Base Waaagh Flesh, Vallejo Game Color Jade Green 72.026, and Jade Green mixed with Scalecolor Hellbound Flesh SFG-16 in two steps. The Blue parts are done in the Navy Blue drybrushed with Army Painter Crystal Blue and Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue 72.021. This was then mixed with Hellbound Flesh, with pure Hellbound Flesh on the top. The Yellow parts are Vallejo Model Color Khaki Grey 70.880 with Citadel Layer Iyanden Yellow, with Scalecolor Hykey Yellow (a yellowy bone) on top. Plus some small details such as eyes, tongue and teeth in other colours I do not remember which paints I used. So now the task is done! Challenge complete! Achievement unlocked! But the road goes ever on and on... #7 Gauth the Dragon Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 125x100mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  4. One of my favorite monsters out of the D&D-sphere is the Beholder Owlbear. I mean. Half owl, half bear. all insane murder monster screaming though the woods looking like a fluffy snugglebunny. Free Hugs! In the Bones 4 core set, there was what I presume must be a juvenile fledgling, chick or cub (what would the term be?) It looks a bit small and scraggly and has what seems to be underdeveloped wingarms, especially when compared to other Owlbears by Reaper. #6 Owlbear: So I painted it as a Great Horned Owl's fledgling, which in general are lighter in colouration until their chick-down falls off during moulting. I have some larger owlbears that will be this one's parents. When I get around to painting them that is. You said there would be hot chicks here! This is not what I thought you meant! #6 Owlbear Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 40mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  5. or as those Texans keep spelling it, "Griffon". (Texans are lovely people, I wouldn't dream of antagonizing them over their simpleton spelling. These folks have guns. I mean, not even the more common "Griffin"...) I went with the African Bateleur Eagle, as it has a striking black, white and red colouration with large creamy panels on the top of the wings. The back bit is just a generic big cat, with reddish brown hairy bits to balance all the red on the front. This model is made in regular 3rd generation Bones plastic. Which in spite of being much more rigid than earlier Bonesium, is not nearly strong enough to hold any weight in awkward positions over time. If one of its front talons had been sculpted touching the base in some way, this would probably not have been a problem. As it was the talon was involuntarily touching the rim of the base anyway together with the wingtip dragging along the ground. This was discovered and fixed some time ago, and I forgot to take any pictures of the listin' gryphon. Anyway, since it drooped quite a bit after just standing around on the shelf, it was nessecary to brace it. I did this by drilling up into the leg and inserting a 1mm diameter metal rod (I used a part of a paperclip for this) to make it stand up properly and discourage further drooping. The pin goes up into the hip or so from beneath the base. This fix has now held in the several months since I fixed it. A long time being exposed to the enormous monsters from Warhammer has skewed my size perception. For some reason I have been thinking about this gryphon as "the small one". Drybrushed from a black undercoat. Yeah, it is a bit rough in places, but perfectly serviceable. #82 The "Griffon" Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  6. #54: Dire Crocodile "The Enormous Crocodile grinned, showing hundreds of sharp white teeth. "For my lunch today," he said, "I would like a nice juicy little child." -Roald Dahl, The Enormous Crocodile 125x50mm 3D-printed base. “Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first.” - Steve Irwin #54 Dire Crocodile, from the Dire Consequences subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  7. The term "Kobold" is originally German for "goblin", "gnome" or "faery", the scary and dangerous beings from outside the campfire's light in preindustrial times. In D&D the name has been used on 1st level mooks who used to be doglike goblinoids but these days are dragonkin, i.e. small reptiliads. These newer kobolds from Reaper are very much more dragon- or reptile-like than earlier versions that might have been doglike... There are 12 of them in the Bones 4 core set. 6 mooks and 6 leaders. #103-108: Kobold Leaders These are the slightly more powerful kobolds. Some of them might even be 2nd level! Numbered left to right, #103-#108. Also note the many mammary glands on #105. These are supposed to be reptilian? #75-#80: The Kobold Mooks Numbered left to right, #75-#80. Not by best work by far. I did four different colour combinations, three of each. After these there are only 3 models left in the core set to go! 12 1st level mooks vs 1 12th level barbarian berserker. Who will win? Ready! Steady! Fight! #103-108 Kobold Leaders #75-80 Kobold Mooks Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  8. #81: The Wyvern I always thought this one has a strange pose. I think mostly this is because of the tilt of the neck and head. 60mm base. A massive crocodile and a smallish (?) wyvern. #81 Wyvern Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor (look like Julie Guthrie?) Made in Bonesium PVC should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  9. #99 The Ettin: or two headed giant if you will. I went with a not typically European skin colour to clash jarringly with the very typically European-looking shield on it's belly, just to annoy those who have a problem with that sort of thing. 50mm base. It still only counts as a single giant. #99 Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm bases, pig and cart on 100x60mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  10. #55: Dire Crab The crabs in my local fjord are all small and black. Easy for kids to catch with a piece of shrimp attached to a clothes peg and some string, but far too small to eat, so they all go back in after beeing ewwed and arghed at. Actually most of them are about the size of this mini IRL. I chose to not do the common yellow/orange food crab colours in favor of what are the colours of the far more exotic (for me) Blue Swimmer Crab found off the coasts of Australia. 50mm base. And it is Dire-sized. #55 Dire Crab Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  11. #17 & 18 The Pig Cart: Obviously at some point I have messed up the mini count, as I was not aware that this was in fact counted as two minis in the Core set graphic. I have been counting it as one all the time. At any rate there still are 12 kobolds, a croc, a gryphon, an owl bear, a wyvern and a dragon left, which leaves 17 minis to do after these three. So Ser Francis here is pulling a cart full of autumnal produce such as pumpkins, apples and a large aubergine. I made a 10cm x 6cm oval base for the whole thing. Also, this might be just the model for an "Ogre Red Goblin Blaster" in Kings of War. Basically it is a cart full of explosives that gets moved up under the nose of the enemy. The Red Goblin driver then has to light the fuse and get away. It should also go well with the rotund TTcombat Halflings from their Halflings and friends kickstarter when I get around to prepping and painting them. #17 & #18 Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 100x60mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  12. The male devils from the Bedeviled subset of the Bones 4 core set: I did them in different colours just because I wanted to. They seem to be mirrored twins with the variations being in arm positioning and weaponry. I based them on 40mm bases. #73 Male Devil with Khopesh (no idea what the official name is / will be) #74 Male Devil with Trident (ditto) Hello most valued supplier! We would like to make you an offer to purchase your soul. In exchange I am sure you would like some earthly power? Maybe the jewelled crown of Aquilonia? #73 and #74 Male Devils from the Bedeviled subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 40mm bases should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  13. The King in the Kingdom of the Blind: Another simple paint job, this one is mainly skin and a few details here and there. The skin is done in Citadel Bugmans Glow drybrushed onto a black undercoat, followed by a drybrush of Citadel Cadian Fleshtone and Scalecolor Basic Flesh. I put a glaze of thinned Citadel Druuchi Violet shade on the underside and in the shadows. Suitably large compared to humans. That rock will make a paste of whomever it hits. I removed his original base and put him on a 40mm base I printed out to keep my basing style uniform across the range. #98 Cyclops Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 40mm base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  14. #72: Female Devil or Succubus Full Frontal Frontal from a slight angle The classic side-boob shot Aha! This shot has a strategically placed arm! No link needed! Take that censorshippers! The bedeviled subset. From the front. #71 Female Devil from the Bedeviled subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 32mm base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  15. In the Bones 4 Core set there were some "pillar tops". Six each of five different styles. These were a bit strange, as they were obviosly designed to fit into *something*, but nothing that they even remotely might fit in was included in the Bones 4 KS. Or elsewhere in the Reaper lineup as far as I know. I was not the only one that found this a bit strange, and luckily one of these others was Curufin, who designs stuff on Thingiverse. He has posted some pillars that fit said tops, and here I have used one of these designs. I printed out the four different, and quickly decided that the tall rough one was the one I liked the best. There were six of each top in the Core set, and I have painted a pair of each design, as I see these as typically found on either side of a door, a road, or whatever. The rest go in the bits box until I have some specific uses for them. I chose to paint them to fit in the style of my dungeon- and goblin grotto-3Dprinted stuff, with a black undercoat followed by dark green, sandy yellow and offwhite. A really quick and rough paint job to get them off the shelf and onto the table top. The pillar tops were larger than I had expected. #136, #137, #138, #139, #140: The Piller Tops subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 3D printed pillars should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  16. I have been away and had alot to do at work ever since, so no painting has gotten done for some time now. I did however manage to make some time today, and have painted up the Rat Ogre from the Bones 4 Core set. Oh, sorry "Giant Wererat". Massive, overstated, muscle bound torso and comparatively short legs, giant apelike arms...This is definately a Skaven Rat Ogre. Just another simple paint job to get something done. I put him on a 50mm base. #12, Giant Wererat Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  17. The "Minitaurs" from the Bones 4 core set, one of the earliest strech goals added to the set. I have no idea whether these represent something specific in D&D or not. They might be stunted minotaurs, swole beastdwarfs, goatmen, large implike demons or maybe something entirely different. Whatever the case may be, they are quite comic-looking in their art direction. Probably has something to do with their wide muscular torsos more than anything. #68: #69: I do find it a bit strange that there are three of one type with cowlike shaped (but serrated like ibex) horns, and the fourth one which more than anything is a reindeer. Naturally, this one is called Rüdölf. With umlaut as he obviously is the most heavy metal one. Note the Hellraiser loincloth and birdskull nipple-ring, #70: This one has what seems to be a defect in his wrist: Why is there a hole there? Is there a part missing or is this just a miscast? Does anybody else have this same armhole? #71: Got beef? #68, #69, #70, #71 : The Minitaurs subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 30mm bases should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  18. Still plonking away at the Bones 4 Core Set, Here is the Dire Boar from the "Dire Consequences" subset. Pumbaa or Piglet. You decide. Drybrushed from a black undercoat. Greys on the bottom part, browns on the top. Oink oink. "I want the funeral feast to be the biggest the kingdom ever saw, and I want everyone to taste the boar that got me." -King Robert Baratheon George RR Martin, A Game of Thrones #56, Dire Boar from the Dire Consequences subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 60x35mm 3Dprinted base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  19. More from the Bones 4 core set: we have arrived at the subset "Hungering Dead": Yup, these are your archetypical ghouls. Flesh eating horrors out looking for some nosh. Gnawers of bone, eaters of the dead. Which begs the question: do they count as cannibals if they no longer are human? Here is my very fast method of painting ghouls and similar effectively: These started out with a solid black undercoat. Then each was drybrushed several times with different beige tones, such as Citadel Ionrach Skin and Karak Stone. Then they were given washes on the undersides with shades such as Citadel Athonian Camoshade and Team Yankee Ordnance Shade. When dry, they were lightly drybrushed again with lighter fleshtones up to almost pure white, keeping to the top surfaces which leaves a kind of zenithal effect. The base rock were done in dark greengrey, drybrushed with yellowy sand, and then lighter drybrushed with offwhite. Black eye sockets with a white dot for the eye lends a sinister look to them. Dot in some details here and there, bases and done. I did these ghouls and the Grymwatch in a single sitting, taking breaks for drying time only. #123; He brought his very own packed lunch. #124: Subject #B4C-124 displays elongated limbs on a gaunt frame, and a foul disposition when peckish. #125: Obviously the hero of the group. A little too fresh for our tastes... #123-125, the Hungering Dead subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Made in Bonesium PVC 30mm bases. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones. At least two of these are currently available in metal.
  20. #157: Here I went much more heavily in with the Dungeon Slime, and further mixes with white, and pure white at the edges. The head, chest, hands and sabre was given a dark grey wash. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. The dead man's chest was done in different browns and black metal. My schedule is increasingly packed these days, so painting time is getting scarce. These are even more speedpainted than usual, just minutes spent on each with some drying time in between. The Ghost Pirate subset that was added to the Bones 4 core set during the last day of the kickstarter campaign. These are made in translucent green material. The key to painting translucents are first to undercoat with clear varnish. I used Vallejo matte varnish through my airbrush. The varnish lets the paint adhere to the plastic and avoids a lot of grief with paint beading or running away from where you want it to go. Then paint with predominantly translucent paint such as inks. With these I tried a few different variations on how to paint them. First I gave them all a thin wash of Citadel Hexwraith Flame (the Nighthaunt green technical paint), making sure to wick up any pooling. This wash helped create some contrast, which in turn let me actually see some of the details. When dry, I used Vallejo Dark Grey Model Wash on the heads, exposed bone bits and other details on most of them. After this was dry, I went in with Reaper Dungeon Slime, a bright and pale green, with high density pigment. (Which really is not ideal for translucents, as this is a really opaque paint.) But I wanted to try this out. The results ...varied. I decided to quickly be done with them and covered the base in my autumn flock mix as usual. A little to quickly it seems, as there still is flock and static grass in unsightly places as seen in the photos. I will be removing said offending matter as soon as I can be bothered. #157, the Ghost Pirate subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Made in Translucent Green Bonesium PVC 30mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones. Currently available in metal.
  21. #156: This one I drybrushed more heavily (and also globbed some straight on) with the dungeon slime, and again with DS mixed with white ending lightly with pure white at the tips. The bottles were carfylly stained with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade wash, wiped off and then once again. The face and chest was the Dark Grey wash, and also some Reikland Fleshshade in the mouth-area. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. My schedule is increasingly packed these days, so painting time is getting scarce.

  22. #158: This one is really off centre because of the base. I have simply glued the integral bases to the 30mm rounds, which keeps the original off-centre feel of the model. Here is a simple drybrush with the dungeon slime, then with white. Dark Gray wash on the face, hair, hands and sabre. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect.

  23. #159: Here I have tried edge-highlighting, that is painting the edges directly with the brush and not drybrushing or similar other techniques. I am not really satisfied with the results, but live and learn. It would seem I have been a bit heavy handed or even missed what I have been aiming at here and there. The other bits are painted in the same way as above, apart fromt he monkey on his back that was first done in brown ink, but did not work. So I went over it with two tones of brown paint instead. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. Oh, and I used black ink on the eyepatch. The boathook was not painted with dark gray wash first, but just edge highlighted with Scalecolor Amethyst Metal.This makes it more ethereal I think. The shaft was given a stripe of dark brown.

  24. #155: The banshee or female ghost is the one I think worked the best. Here I only drybrushed very very lightly with the Dungeon Slime, just to accent the raised details Then I used old Citadel Turquoise Glaze from the top to the waist, easying up a bit the further down I went with the brush. After that I used Old Citadel Blue Ink on and around the head and shoulders. I used Orange Ink on the face and exposed flesh bits in front and wicking most of it away after a short while so that just a hint was left. I did some further light drybrushing with dungeon slime then pure white at the ends of the wispy trails. The wood was done in opaques, whatever browns, bones and greys were on my palette at the time, and given a dark grey wash. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. My schedule is increasingly packed these days, so painting time is getting scarce. These are even more speedpainted than usual, just minutes spent on each with some drying time in between. The Ghost Pirate subset that was added to the Bones 4 core set during the last day of the kickstarter campaign. These are made in translucent green material. The key to painting translucents are first to undercoat with clear varnish. I used Vallejo matte varnish through my airbrush. The varnish lets the paint adhere to the plastic and avoids a lot of grief with paint beading or running away from where you want it to go. Then paint with predominantly translucent paint such as inks. With these I tried a few different variations on how to paint them. First I gave them all a thin wash of Citadel Hexwraith Flame (the Nighthaunt green technical paint), making sure to wick up any pooling. This wash helped create some contrast, which in turn let me actually see some of the details. When dry, I used Vallejo Dark Grey Model Wash on the heads, exposed bone bits and other details on most of them. After this was dry, I went in with Reaper Dungeon Slime, a bright and pale green, with high density pigment. (Which really is not ideal for translucents, as this is a really opaque paint.) But I wanted to try this out. The results ...varied. I decided to quickly be done with them and covered the base in my autumn flock mix as usual. A little to quickly it seems, as there still is flock and static grass in unsightly places as seen in the photos. I will be removing said offending matter as soon as I can be bothered. #155, the Ghost Pirate subset Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Made in Translucent Green Bonesium PVC 30mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.

  25. The snake people from the Bones 4 core set "Nagendra" subset. Nagendra would presumably be Reapers name for the Yuan-Ti snakemen of D&D fame that these would be similar to. Since I saw them I had this inspiration to do the snakes as the types that the Kill Bill Deadly Viper Assassination Squad use as code names. Presenting from The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad: #86: Snake Charmer aka Bill I went with a more typical fantasy colour scheme on this one as the code name is not a snake species. I imagine that snakes, being cold blooded (technically they are not actually cold, but poikilotherm which means their body temperature is regulated by their surroundings, and not heated internally like warmblooded creatures like mammals. This again means that they are sluggish and slow when cold and quick and speedy when warm.) would find frostfire especially dangerous and deadly. These are speedpaints, and therefore all a bit rough. All done in just a few hours. My work commitments have increased significantly lately, so I do not have that much time to paint. I might revisit them with washes, lining and detailing at a later date, but for now they are acceptable for the table top. They are all painted from a black undercoat. I made a 32mm base adapter that fits 25mm bases, and used it on these to make the bases more in line with both the size of the models and the rest of my basing for the Bones models.
