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...

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

 

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.

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.)

      Overview
       
      I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back.
       
      The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting.
       

      The original figure; this is the backup.
       

      The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green.
       

      You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later.
       

      There are no visible gaps on the outside.
       

      The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll
      just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield.
       

      The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.

      Just in time for the season!
      I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis.  I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it.
      This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely.  Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things.  But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.

      Jake is looking for someone who enjoys Halloween movies as much as he does! Jake was originally released as a special edition figure for Halloween 2015. He was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
       
      Since Reaper Miniatures has re-released some of the unavailable Bonesylvanians for Halloween2021, I thought I would share some additional views of the ones I painted, as well as the colours I used.

      (Note that these figures are metal and sold individually. Not all of the Bonesylvanians originally released in 2014-2015 were made into Bones plastic versions.)
