Which one is Bones?  

298 members have voted

  1. 1. There are two figures - one is Metal. One is Bones. Which figure in the pictures is the Bones miniature?

    • The one on the Left.
      60
    • The one on the Right.
      188
    • I cannot tell.
      50

I voted RIGHT for one reason - the figure on the right is taller.

 

I noticed the bent staff on the RIGHT only after I had voted - but you would have won extra clever points if you had purposely bent the metal staff.

 

Your excellent paint job does drive home the point that the quality of Bones miniatures is very high.

Late to the party, but I had to say I could not tell. After reading through and going back and looking, I found things that people used as clues. A brilliant paint job on each of them. Well played, sir. Well played, indeed.

I'm not sure if the answer was already posted, since I went from first page to last and seeing the first post dates months back...

But... I cannot tell.

 

The staff caught my eye aswell and somewhere I thought the bent one should be bones, but then again, I often straighten a metal staff and bend it without realising, or I just completely forget to straighten it... So, it could be both I guess.

 

But... appart from that...

I love this post! It's great to see I don't see the difference! I was getting a bit worried having spend so much money on plastics of which I didn't know the quality... but now this post gives me a kinda relaxed feeling that I'm getting good stuff, and on the other hand it stresses me out cause I have nearly patience left to wait for mine! Hope my box arrives soon and that the customs don't start playing with them in their offices...

 

Thanks for sharing! :-)

 

I look forward to do the same test with 03547 Juliette :-)

I actually have a number of the KS Bones in metal already.

As do I, unpainted no less. I've taken the past 2.5 months off of painting, but I'm planning to come up with a new challenge here in the near future.

I went with right, only after going carefully over both minis. I ignored the staff, since it seemed like an obvious tell, and examined other things, like his hands, the points on his collar, and the edges of his robe. Instinct told me that those details would be softer, not as crisp, and in the case of his fingers, slightly thicker than on the metal mini. The differences are very slight, and unless I was deliberately looking for differences as I was just now, I would never have been able to tell them apart. Bravo!


As soon as I saw this picture, I knew I'd found what I wanted to put on the outside of my KS case. A quick google let me find it without the words (though they are most awesome), and also showed me that there's a t-shirt of it that I know my husband would love. So, thank you for your thread rez picture! :D

 

Huzzah!

      Since I hadn't seen many other paint jobs go by I thought people might like to see my goblin in power armor.
      And a blood nebula mercenary for scale.

      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 Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      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 :)
