[Group/Open] Colossal Skeleton

Recommended Posts

I like the conversion, but I would be worried about the legs, given the problems people are experiencing with Deathsleet's ankles. Having a third point of contact seems to help greatly, as in Deathsleet's tail or the skeleton's hammer thing. I'd watch it carefully over a few days before doing anything you wouldn't want ruined.

Not only the legs are touching the ground, the clothes, too. They are hard, I think harder than the arms. If they will make problems, I will put in them steel needles...


Personally I do not think that most bones produced in Texas will have the same problem. My Deathsleet does not have the problem. I worked for a big company for a while and everytime we did produce something in Thailand and China, we had problems with the products out of China.


It is possible that the molds were to hot or wrongly cooled down or anything else during producing the bones.

Houston we have a problem!


It look like the hammer of the colosal skeleton is a little heavy. So the it has a bend back, now.

This is what I came up with. I plan on using it as a Terrorgheist in my Heinrich Kemmler undead army I'm waiting on my 100mmx150mm base to arrive and I plan on making some type of diorama on it using the Reaper Warlord and Overlord casualty markers as victims of the hammer smash. I originally wanted to make him look like he's leaping thru the air and perhaps attach him to a mausoleum piece on the base, but the base wouldn't hold all the terrain I planned to use, so I just simplified his pose ,stay tuned for more to come.

      Hi guys, I just finished that big guy :)

      "Hey Galadon, your colossus is playing whack-a-mole on the golf course again!"
      Or some other silly caption.  Many suitable possibilities.  The runner ups were "Almost!" and "How many hit points does this familiar have?"
      This guy has been on my shelf of shame pretty much since I received the first Bones Kickstarter.  He was one of the first Bones I tried to paint and I learned a lot from starting on him and giving up several times. 
      But now he's done (or as done as I can force myself to make him... the base probably needs some more love). 
      31 more projects on the shelf of shame!  Thankfully only three more of them are large figures.

      I started this guy last year at Reapercon in the Convert a colossal skeleton class, and entered him into the open category at this year's Reapercon; he earned a bronze.
      WIP is located here:

      I guess I got to the event between 11 and 12. The second order of business was to sign up for classes.
      The first class I could get into was a Conversion class conducted by Jason Weibe. The theme was to convert the big Bones Skeleton (77116) possibly on a Halloween theme.
      It was great fun and towards the end I started snapping pictures of our efforts. I got a picture (or in some cases two pics) of almost everybody's giant. Enjoy:



      These two show the ongoing work in progress: above no horns, below sprouted horns...
