Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Thanks OneBoot,

 

Shame Reaper has no sense of humor, the worm joke was the funniest damn thing to happen all day and I was reaping karma off of my reply! :blush:

They probably did one of those "LOL...but seriously guys that cant be there"

I opted out of last years sophie for the same reason. That and it was metal and most llikely a pain to put together. Had she been bones I probably would have kept her.

 

 

+1 from me. As a rookie to mini painting/assembling, metal is/was scary.

 

Heck, I still haven't put together any of the multi-part bones minis from KS 1, but given a background in models assembly, I think I may have better luck with those than with metal.

I'm looking forward to my eventual adventures in assembling KS1 Sophie. Mostly because of the stories I'll have about how I ruined a limited edition metal figure.

If you traderd her in last time you don't get one this time. You upset her.

Fortunately I kept my Sophie, bought the UL Sophie and bought the Sophie Box Set (even though I already had all of them).

Most of the large bones I have the pegs are just so much better and easier than any metal I have ever seen. They almost go together without any glue/greenstuff. That is how well some of them fit together. (Kaladrax being the one exception from what I saw in person)

Funny to some, but not all and rules are rules. What's so wrong with wanting to keep this board family friendly?

I'm not sure who wouldn't find it funny, and I didn't say anything about it not being family-friendly It was a clean joke, and it set itself up perfectly. I broke no rule. By the Mod's admission we're all older than 12, and I've heard far worse spew from the mouths of kids younger than 12.

That new demon slayer sophie is pretty darn cool looking. Fingers crossed that the mini lives up to the artwork.

 

Reaper Sculptors fight over who gets to go through Talin's concept artwork first. I'm sure Bobby will do a killer job on Sophie, no worries.

<Mod>karma equaled locked thread?

It wasn't funny to enough of us. Bryan's comment about age refers to the trying to get around my locking.

Keep it family friendly. If in doubt, don't post.

Reaper Miniatures about 1 hour ago

@Niranth - I *could* if we had closer to full participation. Right now only 9,000 of 13,000 have used it. Of those, less than a third are ROW

 

Ohhh, that's interesting. Ignoring the fact that only 3/4 of the pledgers have used the calculator it's still interesting that ROW seems to be such a large part. Admittedly, "less than a third" can mean anything from 0.1% up to 33%, but compare that with the 25% ROW pledgers from Bones I AND the shipping kerfluffle.

Troll Slaying Sophie to the rescue! I can totally use her in games without a second thought.

 

It's not a true Reaper project unless there is a Sophie!

 

And this time 'round, we like her. We really really like her! :wub:

? what's an ignore list and how do you know you're on it?

 

If you click your name at the top of the page, you'll see the option to "Manage Ignore Prefs". If there is someone who regularly makes you lose your goat nature, you can choose not to see their posts (and other things). I'm not sure it's possible to know whether you're on someone's ignore list.

Yeah, me too. (So I don't need to buy that Bourbon St. Sophie from you after all.) ^_^

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
