ArtistCon Bones Giant Conversions

Recommended Posts

I guess I got to the event between 11 and 12. The second order of business was to sign up for classes.

 

The first class I could get into was a Conversion class conducted by Jason Weibe. The theme was to convert the big Bones Skeleton (77116) possibly on a Halloween theme.

 

It was great fun and towards the end I started snapping pictures of our efforts. I got a picture (or in some cases two pics) of almost everybody's giant. Enjoy:

These two show the ongoing work in progress: above no horns, below sprouted horns...

I saw these on Facebook, they're all really cool.  The one with the wings for arms is probably my favorite conversion as it looks like it was supposed to be that way.

Agreed!

The green sharpie is in most of the pictures to establish scale. Bone Giant stands about 4-5 inches tall (in stock condition).

I really like that one as well. Makes you wonder if it was a giant harpy when it was alive.

 

Jason also shot a set of pics and I suspect those are the ones that made it to facebook.

 

 

Ahhhh reminds me of last RAC ( that is where I made my two headed giant skeleton conversion)

If I dig and search will it be found somewhere on the forums?

 

 

Those are great!

Looking forward to seeing them painted up!

That will be up to the individual owners, if they have logins on the forums, etc. Going forward I will do cross-links to their WiP painting threads if I learn of them or get a PM about them.

 

I will use this thread if I get ambitious enough to attempt putting paint on the one I did. (Mine was the one summoned by the mousling necromancer. Beware! the mousling necromancer—big things can be summoned from small scrolls.)

This one is mine. If I had found more of the smaller skellies, they would be all over him. :)

Thanx Dixon. I have gone back and added a caption and credit to the initial post.

      Good Evening! SO after sorting through my minis and cleaning up my workstation post reaper con, I felt inspired to tackle some techniques that I have been avoiding. I wanted to pick a mini that i felt I could paint quickly (but lessbehonest, I don't paint quickly at all) and that would be a good candidate for two techniques that I am trying to learn. after a long drawn out process of hemming and hawing I found a miniature that I received an unmentionable number of years ago from reaper as a prize for buying miniatures during October. So it is Krissy the modern witch with out her familiar.

       
      I have an idea of what I want to do, I want to keep the miniature a tight focus on OSL and Transparent fabric. If I am feeling like it after I have completed the mini, I may do a special base for her. I feel pretty good about my understanding of color, but I think this is going to be a pretty good challenge. Here's what I have so far.

      Converted this one by using an avatars of war pit fighter body and added some greenskins bits (sword, head, etc) and greenstuff. Painted him to be used as an orc boss in my orc warband. Hope you like him!

      I bought this guy just before Halloween last year and promptly lost him. I found him Saturday evening under the sofa(!) while looking for my dog's missing tennis ball, so I finally got to paint him. This is the metal version but I can't find him on the Reaper site so I've given him the Bones SKU.
       
      The "leaves" on the base are actually bits of crushed red chili pepper and the stalk thingies are from a tree that's reachable from our balcony.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!
