Just saw that one myself.   Must be Dutch, "Kill" means "small river" in Dutch (creek, basically,) so there are a ton of those names in Eastern New York, which was prominently Dutch.  Catskill, Fishkill, Poestenkill, Wynantskill, etc.

Learning new things everyday! I have never used that word, and I tend to speak Dutch every day.


@reaperfolks, awesome progress, very cool to just look at the tracker go and go and go!

Also, hey; is your address the same?

as I'm just an impatient old guy ... how would folks that have some experience with UPS read this?


Germany 02/20/2015 2:11 P.M. Package departed international carrier facility

Germany 02/19/2015 1:46 P.M. Shipment Acceptance at international carrier

Bensenville, IL, United States 02/18/2015 1:34 P.M. Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations 


Does that mean (from bottom to top): Bones arrived at airport (Bensenville), were put on the plane and the plane left the airport ... so my bones are over the Atlantic ...


or does it mean: they arrived at airport, were put on the plane and left the plane at an airport in Germany and thus are now on a truck hopefully driving in my direction?

This just in:


The Kraken, like DDS, is an exceptional bit of kit. I was surprised to see the undercuts in the gills. Nice work Reaper.


That is all.

he's a beautiful mini ::D:

Agreed, but not looking forward to getting those tentacles correct!



Yea, I think I misplaced four of them...two of the tentacles seem wider than the other two, and I THINK they're supposed to be the very center top two...but I put them on the ones on either side of the center top two, and the armor plates don't line up perfectly


but other than that, there doens't seem to be much difference in the others...so I think only those two have a specific place to be

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.

      As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames.  I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
      This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
      At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...

      What is this sorcery?! 
      Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

      Here is my Kanjira. The pose of the monster made me think it could be a good idea too make it emerge through the Trees. A vision of Knightmare, for sure.

      Also did a quick speed paint of two statues. Not sure were the other column is at the moment, but this one was out while I was painting the angel of death so it got paint too.

      She fit very snuggly into that base. I'm debating whether or not she'll stay in it.



      The pair. Also the angel without the base.
