Nicely done Adrift! As I had originally thought when you posted the idea of this tread.... There would be no visual ques to determine the difference between a painted BONES and Metal figures. I can't tell the difference.

very hard to tell any significant detail differences at that distance and size of picture.

They are very close

Ièm gonna guess the metal one is the left one..simply because the staff looks straighter and I assume the metal one would be easier to straighten vs the plastic. but thats really more meta thinking than based on any discernible difference

Well unless it's a badly bent metal mini I think the one on the right with the curvy staff is the bones one as that's the kinda curve I've come to expect from plastic with spears and things.

 

Having said that, I can't see any other difference, they both look good and it makes me much more excited for the BBoB coming soon. Although I've painted a bit of plastic now and once painted, you really can't tell the difference between plastic and metal, anyone that says there's a difference is smoking the peace pipe.

Very nice paintjob on these two figures. Having not seen either in metal or bones other than pictures, I would speculate the the bones is on the left and the metal is on the right. I did not post my reasoning to let others have a fair shot at figuring it out for themselves.... and hey, I have a 75% chance of being wrong! Why 75% and not 50% you dare ask? You should ask Murphy why he treats me so badly on coin flips...

I'm going to guess that the Bones mini is on the right, only because the sculpt of the bottom of the robe has slightly more rounded edges than that on the left. They basically identical though, which is incredible. Very, very nice paint by the way! Are those the 1' round wooden discs from Michael's btw?

I would have to vote for the mini on the right being the Bones. Also because of the bend. But otherwise I could not see a significant difference between the two.

If that is the case, I would have tried to curve the metal staff (should have been easy) to match to avoid the tell.

 

Granted, I would have been an evil SOB and either painted two metal or two Bones just to screw with people. :devil:

My vote is with the majority and for the same reason. Paint looks similar. Lower right hem looks less detailed on right mini than left, but back ve on right is better than left. All in all a wash. It was just slight changes due to two figs being painted vs the material. Good job!

I'm vote Bones on the right because of the bent staff, as well, but also because the curve on the bottom of the robe on the left looks less rigid. The guys on the left's robe is stiff and very straight while the guy on the right has a distinct wobble in it.

I'm going to guess that the right one is the bones miniature as well because of the bend and it's missing a "squiggle" at the top. Fun thing is while both are beautifully painted, I think the right one is the better of the two. Smoother and more distinct.

Bendy staff aside...There appears to be sharper detail on the left model. The points on the back and the collar. There appears to be damage to the top back of the staff and the left collar on the right model, possibly from cleaning slicey bones. But the thing that made me pick the right model as Bones is the mold line inside the left hand.


That said, other than the damage to the model I mentioned and the bendy staff, both look great and it's really minor stuff that wouldn't matter at all to gamers.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...

      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)
