Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion


Recommended Posts

I am hoping the sophie model ends up something that fits the feel of gameplay miniatures. It would be a cool character to add to an RPG or wargame proxy, with her wings, she'd make a cool Legion Everblight warcaster or solo for Hordes. A lot of the other sophies I see seem too posed and pin-up style, more like ornaments for someones desk.

That's because most of them are. I know I keep mine in a glass display case.

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

Ok. I have to have Mashaaf. Just so monstrously awful and terrifying. And at the sametime I am sad knowing that she won't come to the table in my family adventure. She would send my youngest girl physically fleeing to her room to hide. And it would be months before I could get her to comeback to the table. But one day, I will DM a game where she will rattle the bones of tiny heroes, and players will mourn the deaths of a beloved adventurers. Yes I say...... one day...

 

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

 

there aren't many figures that make me want to cackle meniackly, butthis one does.

You think *that's* crazy?!

 

I want to have Mashaaf, put some lipstick on her and a flower hat and have tea and crumpets with Sophie.

 

Mashaaf is not just a worm abomination deity from the great beyond. She's also a well-mannered lady with exquisite taste.

 

And I don't want my goddaughter to run away from my minis.

Hell, I'm tempted to get two or three of Mashaaf. She's such a dynamic, interesting sculpt. I can easily see her being worshipped by a huddled band of humanoids, chipping away at flint to form arrowheads while muttering "I'm sure the ancients are wrong. There's just no way that humans could ever have been dominant over the mighty Kobold Empire!"

Its a 54mm I think though...but this would be cool to have a smaller version

It is not 54, it is 28, and on the smallish side of that...

 

Oh ok...I just assumed because I went over to Miniature Gaint to find the picture and their price was $18.99 so I just assumed it was bigger. Perhaps that was because its limited edition.

Trivia: Sophie was almost called "demon slayer" instead of "troll slayer" but since she is a succubus it felt wrong to slay other demons, and since there was this pledge troll....

Troll slaying is more fun anyway.

The name fits her perfectly, and given the shenanigans with pledge trolls, it's also perfectly fitting. :) Sophie looks more than ready to lop the head off of the next person to bother her!

 

Huzzah!

What is the pledge troll?

 

This person who kept upping his/her pledge to unlock stuff, then backing it down to re-lock it.

ReaperCon '04 Reclining Sophie is currently $84.99 at Miniature-Giant. Gotta really want her. ::): She was available for a single day during Reaper's 12 Days of Christmas promotions in 2012 and 2013 as I recall (free with an order). I know that's how I got hold of a couple copies. It was also one of the Sophies in the set sold during Bones KS 1 and in the set of five released at ReaperCon '09(?).

      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.
