Seltyiel Bones vs. Metal Comparison

Recommended Posts

First let me say you did an amazing job on these. You set the bar high. Between you and DKS I may just put this guy back in the bin. He's currently sitting on my table waiting a paint up for one of the players in my sporadic LL game. 

 

I really like how you do the comparisons. So thanks. Keep 'em coming. Cheers.

Number one is metal, I think. Great job. Is only one metal? That's my guess.

I'm going to agree based on the nose, buy I could be wrong. A beautiful and very consistent job on all of these!

I'm basically looking at the hair and sword arm. Both look sharper on the first mini compared to the others, which all seem to share similarly softer, bigger hair strands and rounder edges on the arm brace.

Nice job on these.  I have a hard enough time painting a similar color scheme on different figures.  Doing the same one over and over and over would probably drive me crazy!

 

As for the bones vs. metal, I would go for the first one being metal and the rest as bones.  Not only do the bracers appear more detailed, the face appears slightly different and the arm seems to be able to support the whatever that is at a higher angle.

I think 1 and 4 are metal.  But it is nothing to do with the quality, just the sword has more of a square edge in the metal mini than the bones version.  Really awesome painting on all of them. I really like the cold light, warm light contrast.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 77452 Invisible Ranger I painted last night. I'll be using this translucent model as a marker whenever I make a hide check.
      The other model is the metal version of 02909 Nienna, Elf Ranger sculpted by Werner Klocke. The character I'm playing is a multiclass; ranger, rogue, sorceress.
      I painted the base with Reaper MSP paint and used only inks on the model itself. More pictures of my painted version of 02909, Nienna the elf ranger.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a lovely nymph I just completed. I started the skin with a beige base coat and green shadows. Then glazed successive layers of green and beige.
      This Dark Heaven Legends model 02741, Nymph sculpted by Werner Klocke and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
