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.

      Having recently started a pathfinder campaign I needed some miniatures suitable to use as Bandits or town guardsmen.  After looking for a bit, I settled on the Bones Black Maggotcrown Men At Arms.  Unfortunately, when they arrived, having ordered them from eBay, the spearman's weapon was mis-moulded, so I had to replace it with the spear from an old GW high elf.
       
      C&C's are more than welcome, hope people like my take!

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Another one rescued from the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things. My Kingdom Death minis always turn out fairly hit or miss, and I think this one falls a bit on the miss side, but I like the job I did on her shield.
      Just wish they'd stop with the dramatic dust clouds, can never figure out how to paint them!
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.
