Quick and Easy Ghoul Queen Sword Conversion (Bones) (77175)


Recommended Posts

The Girl does look better holding the sword than wearing it...EXCELLENT idea & SPLENDIDLY accomplished. I've never figure out what those long thingies are that project from the sheath...I'm longing forward to what you do with them & her.

Thanks. I think the long things are supposed to be rib bones...at least that's the direction I'm going with them. :)

 

 

  

Very nice conversion! Thank you for including the details of how you accomplished the change. It is a big help for conversion-newbies like me.

Thank you. I'm glad you found it useful.

Amusingly, I'm in the midst of painting that exact same mini.  Now that I've seen your excellent conversion, I'm almost tempted to stop mid-paint and convert her into the single-sheathed ghoul queen.  Great work!  (And I'm looking forward to seeing that necromancer warband!)

That looks really nice. Dropping the back scabbard really helps with the overly cluttered silhouette of the mini and brings her form out.

 

I know when I was digging through my Bones and looking at them all, she stood out to me as one I couldn't figure out what was what for the longest time.

Thanks all for the kind remarks regarding my conversion.  I'm very appreciative of how well you all liked it.

 

 Though I'm sorry if I cause anyone to mess up any painting that they've already begun in an attempt to retro-convert their own mini!

I have posted the final painted figure in the Show-Off forum: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67673-ghoul-queen-bones-77175/?p=1331187

 

In retrospect, I think she would have been further improved if, during her surgery, I had removed that big crab-claw ornamentation behind her head.  It's a redundancy with the bone hair adornments she already has.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      My 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of  craft paint
      before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain.

      I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey.

      We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
