  1. From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135. A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases. Click for more pics

    Maledrakh's 77329 Silver Dragon

    A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on. Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish. However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon. pics below the clicks
  3. I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper ) But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos. This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield. ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter. Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even! I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that. I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys! B4Core #13 Champion of Chaos Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 40mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

    Maledrakh's 77631 Vorvorlaka vampire

    This mini is called "Vorvorlaka" and is from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Graveyard expansion. I based it on a 30mm lipped base. The obligatory size comparisons... 77631 Vorvorlaka Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Graveyard expansion Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi 30mm base available from reapermini.com Here shown with Reaper 80068 Victorians and North Star's Pulp Heroes: The Film Crew sculpted by Bob Murch click the pic to enlarge
  5. Two out of three "Victorians" .These are from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Mythos expansion, and called "Victorians". The colour schemes are inspired by the "town walk" outfits of Mina and Vlad in 1992 movie Bram Stoker's Dracula. ...and for some reason these are in a smaller scale than most other reaper minis. 80068 Victorians Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Mythos expansion Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi 25mm 3D printed bases available from reapermini.com

    Maledrakh's 77256 Brass Bull

    The Brass Bull. out of the Bully for you subset in the Bones 2 core set. This is a not-Gorgon from D&D. I do not know why Gygax would call this a Gorgon, since it really has nothing to do with the Gorgon sisters from Greek myth. But what it is, is a massive metal bullock that has a petrifying green gas breath attack. Even though the Gorgon is described as iron, in that it can be rusty, I did it in bronzey brassey colours. I gave it a bit of green around the muzzle to look like some residue from it's halitosis. More beneath the click

    Maledrakh's 77448 Werebat

    nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-BATMAN! Another inbetweener, the Bones 3 Werebat this time. I had some paint left over on my palette (I do like dropper bottles much better than the dry-out-pots citadel uses, but sometimes too much paint comes out and I can't really put it back. More pics beneath the click
  8. This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2. This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis. Your panther has made a mess of my carpet! Come clean it up! 77217 Mi-Sher, female elf with scimitars Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 core set Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 30mm lipped base available from reapermini.com

    Maledrakh's Bones 2 + 4 Scenery bits

    These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys. Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos. On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set. The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right. They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.) I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway. 77246 Pillar of Good 77247 Pillar of Evil Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Core set, Dungeon Décor subset Sculpted by Sandra Garrity Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped based available from reapermini.com These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well. Again, they should have come in a pairs of each. It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp. This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch. Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens. klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute! I said the words! I did!

  10. The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey. Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like. I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least. The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

    Maledrakh's Nolzurs Treant gone bad

    From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer. I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely. And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman. Hence, Torchwood the Furious here. Go on, you know you want to go on:
  12. 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 broad. Weak at the neck, and under the arm ...and behind the legs! I wonder if the upper parts of the chest, between the plackart and the gorget, are meant to be bare flesh and not armour? It would probably look wierd if I painted it like that though.

    Maledrakh's Bones 4 City Guard

    Mat and Pat of the City Guard. Or whatever Reaper calls these minis. So far the only names I have for them is Bones 4 Core set #14 and #15. STOP PRESS: Upon actually checking the internets, it seems that they are already available cast in metal, and called "City Guard (2)". A no brainer, really. They are quite obviously just that. I think I should have done the edging on the lower parts of the tabards differently, the blacklining did not turn out well at all. Looks better unmagnified IRL though. 'Alt raht there Guv'ner. You're not gettin' in 'ere dressed like that!

    Maledrakh's Halfling Spirits

    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 (mostly MDF terrain and such up until now) and has Troll Trader behind it, I turned a blind eye to the waving red flag of Too Good To Be True prices and took the chance, going for the RPG pledge and a couple of packs of monsters. The RPG pledge consisted of 10 or 5 each of a number of hafling types and undead halfling types, plus a general and a necromancer mini. And I am happy to say that not only did TTCombat deliver more or less on time (only a shortish delay on this one!), but also the minis are good quality in a resin with a slight flex to it (I suspect it is the same kind that Mantic uses) and that is both easy to work with and quite forgiving if you drop the model. Here are the first ones I have finished, the 10 halfling ghosts: There were three different versions, but the collation was not optimal. I got only 1 of the middle one, 4 and 5 of the other two types. I believe the collation is better in the other unit types I got. No! Boogermen! Stay away from me! I really had no issues with preparing the models for painting, apart from one of the three ghost types having a thick gate going up under the skirt, so to speak. Luckily they came off with a little snipping without damaging the models. I did not need to break out the saw. Lots of vents to snip off, but they did so without any problems. Very little mould lines or bubbles. The worst was actually getting the mould release agent (some kind of silicon) off the minis, a simple scrub-a-dub-dub was not enough for some of the models. This lead to the undercoat being partly rejected on parts of a few of the models. A further coat on the affected areas did the trick though. The minis came with square bases. I used my own 3D printed 20mm rounds instead. The resin they were made of was white and light grey, so I painted these with a black undercoat, so I could see that everything was covered. They I gave them a heavy white zenithal, so they were mostly whiteish. At last I could use that Nighthaunt technical paint ( I wonder if this actually is more or less the same as the new Contrast paints? I do not have any contrast paints so I can't really check.) I gave them all a goodly coat of that, drawing away the larger pooling with a damp brush. When this was dry I thought they were too pale, so I drybrushed them carefully with Reaper Clear Yellow using a flat brush. This gave the much brighter, almost glowing effect I was after. I painted parts of the chains with a bit of Scalecolor Trash Metal to highlight them a bit as translucent metal. Experimenting with different eye colours, I settled on blue-in-blue, as I thought it looked the best to carry across that these are mostly lost souls endlessly looking for their second breakfasts and not really all that evilly wrathful. They are cute little tykes. Albeit in a cartoony style. Halflings Spirits TTCombat 2018/2019 Resin 20mm bases Should become available from TTCombat in the future.

    Maledrakh's Bones 4 knights

    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 around when the white cloaks come. What do we say to the god of death? These also seem to be new sculpts for this KS. Come to think of it, this lot should be good proxies for Kings of War Vanguard Basileans.

  17. 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 over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.

    Maledrakh's 77050 Lizardman Warrior

    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
  19. 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
  20. 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 knightly order or follow the same deity. There exists a metal version of this minis called "Ava Justinia, Female Templar" Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
  21. From the first Bones kickstarter, or rather, a purchase I made soon after since I did not add on the "Fire Giant Warriors" subset. As I have written earlier, I am grinding through getting the older versions of the Giants painted, as the newer versions are both 1) better detailed, and 2) a lot larger. The idea is that if I do not get the older ones done before I start the newer versions, they will never be touched again. Which would be a shame, really. This is the only old version Fire Giant I have, as the ones from Bones 3 and out are the new size and design. I went with red skin and firey hair and beard. The red is new Citadel Screamer Pink, Wazdakka Red and Evil Sunz Scarlet. The steel is Scalecolor Black Metal, Army Painter Plate Mail Metal and Army Painter Shining Silver. The gold is Vallejo Model Color Brass. ...and Char Donaye is only one wicket away from retaining the Ashes... 77179 Fire Giant Bodyguard Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC. 60mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  22. Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set. click for close ups and all that
  23. So now that we know who won the Game of Thrones and ended up sitting down... Dragoth the Defiler on Throne. Just look at the strength of that undead overlord! Holding his sword casually in the air with his arm outstretched, Darth Vader-style! This mini is from the second Bones kickstarter core set. I based it on a 50mm round lipped and put some black flock around it. Looks good! This one can also do double duty as a Charnel Throne scenery item for my Age of Sigmar Flesh Eater Courts Army. The sword simply would not stay glued to the skull I placed the tip at. That is the power of Bones plastic memory for you. I should have heat treated the thing to position it correctly before painting. Oh well. No matter. Reaper makes a metal version of this that presumably predates the Bones 2 kickstarter, and that has a vampire's head instead of a skeleton's skull. I wonder why they changed it to a skull for the Bones version? "Ah! We meet again! And I see your sword is as big as mine!" 77201 Dragoth the Defiler Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base

    Maledrakh's Goblins (Bones 3 + 4)

    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 they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War. I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop. 36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead. Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard) I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis. This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality, These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days. 77444 Goblin Warriors + 77445 Goblin Skirmishers Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015 (and Bones 4 KS 2017) Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC. 20mm bespoke 3D printed round lipped base available from reapermini.com
