This could be fun in Bones..


03096: Barros & Tempest, Paladin on Pegasus

As a mounted figure, that breaks the 3 points of support rule.  Looks nice, but not bones viable without bulking up those back legs like crazy.


If the tail is touching the base, it could be enough to keep it level.



or Reaper could introduce flying Bones bases........ :wub:


or just do what I did with mine, mount it using a sturdy wire or in my case the base it comes with (haven't decided, friend is using piano wire for the post) 


This is the metal version:

(note the funky base)

And Mythical Monsters


Now I can go to bed. :;):

Digging the mythical monsters!


Oh yah!


Love the lady sphinx.  Bought the Weird West/OZ figs at RCon last year so no excitement for those but they are fantastic minis + hey flying monkeys in Bones = HORDES!!!

Anyone have any idea what the dwarf king might cost retail?  I'd like 2 thrones, and thinking probably about a wash just to get an extra set of that now instead of waiting to buy later.


i'm not sure, but it looks to be a big hunk of bones material...probably a super good deal to get it for the price it is, along with the other minis

A lot of people appeared on the game map. Including an 8-bit Cthulhu (part 3 of the Mythos expansion?)

Clearly an umber hulk, sorry! :P


That said, wow. Not a lot of great sphynx out there that I can think of - most are either masculine/ragefaced like the one reaper makes, or just look like neko with wings. This one captures everything I want in a sphinx, on the other hand - beauty, catlike poise, animalistic limbs, and big, gorgeous, easily-convertible wings...


Likewise, the manticore is fantastic. George Wise's one isn't bad, mind you - but this one has a certain sleek anger to it that matches what I think of in a big predator, plus awesome scales and a great face. The wings are also cool - the whole thing looks really put-together, although I'd like to see what's up with the tail from another angle...

I may regret it, but I've backed out of getting that mystic circle. I'm just thinking about where to put it, and what I'd do with it, and coming up with a blank. Last KS, I regretted not getting the giant spider several times, each time rechecking the pledge and being surprised I did get it. This time... I don't think it'll be in the cart.


Course, that also makes room for those Mythical Monsters. They'll look good in the display.

      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

      Goblin Command (77349)
      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Goblin Warriors (77444)
      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."
      H.P.Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

      Ahoy, my dream enemy! Have at you!
      Also, this one will be a part of the Kings of War Nightstalkers army.
