Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion


Recommended Posts

As a Reaper noob, what is the deal with Sophie, is this a mascot or based on a actual person at reaper?

 

p.s. My "Warlord Second Edition" book just arrived today so more Warlord minis that fit in that books factions would be much enjoyed.

Sorry for the quality (my scanner is broken) but here it is:

Sorry, no. The insanity spread to some of the people from Reaper over on the comments tonight...   Presenting... Pitamat   There's no going back now...

Blah, insomnia strikes again. So, without further ado... *cracks knuckles* Alright, chums, let's do dis. LEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIINS! ~~~~~~~~~~ Antonia Vogel about 4 hours ago

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.

 

Than they crank out a prototype in a day? That big worm thing when from art to model photo in about 24 hours.

? 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.

 

Ah thanks for this! I get people wanting to vent but some poster's negativity is harshing my buzz. Now they can vent and I don't need to experience it!

From what I hear the translucents are not too different from other bones to paint, but it is a slightly different formula as they are both colored (in most cases) and translucent.

 

For the Prototypes. The Great Mother Worm was already sculpted. They just had to receive her back to photo her as she went for the molding process.

 

For Sophie: I am super happy and excited. I wanted Sophie on this and one in bones is even better! I still have the kickstarter Sophie from last year. We refused to trade her away as I had always wanted a sophie and look forward to finishing her painting. After I find all of her parts. They seemed to have scattered during a recent move.

Also, are the translucents "bones" or is it a different kind of plastic? Does it need to be painted different?

 

It's pretty much the same. You can paint it without priming, it's flexible and there's a wide variety of flexibility in the different sculpts - the Lesser Fire Elemental from the first Kickstarter is noticably more flexible than the rest of the translucent red sculpts. Probably because of her wings & the need to remove her from the mold in one peice.

 

You can, however, paint them with transparent paints if you have access to them. I use Tamiya Clear paints: the red has been my go-to for blood effects for years, and the other colors over metallics gives a wonderful 'laquered' effect to things like oriental armors. Using them on the translucents gives an interesting effect: it works very well indeed on the green 'undead' figures, with quite a bit of definition added. The red isn't quite as good for definition, and working in the different temperatures of fire is tricky at best, but it's still servicable.

Can't guarantee this, but I think Bryan said they had the green but not good photos so they went with Talin's artwork first.

IBobby Jackson did the Sophie sculpt! I missed that on the first read of the email since I was busy staring at the Sophie. He's done a bunch of my new favorite figures (I don't have only old favorites since I've only been at this a few months).

I'm gonna drybrush black onto that shadowhound & give him white teeth & red eyes. Just enough purple to make him look unworldly.

 

Provided the purples dark - if it's the same shade as the green, I think it'll be a bit too bright for a hellbeast...

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
