Bones LTPK Layer Up?


Recommended Posts

So I was browsing over at FRP Games and saw that they had a second Bones LTPK called Layer Up(#08907) listed as a preorder. I've got a coworker who I'm just introducing to painting, and who bought the first Bones LTPK already but is now looking for more. Is this coming soon, or has it been shelved for later due to some reason or another? If it's coming soon, I'll tell him to buy it when it pops up, but otherwise I may just send him over here to buy some of the minis and paints that came with the old LTPKs and lend him my copies of the booklets that came with them.

I hope it's before. I can't really teach him much, because my painting is pretty basic itself, and the LTPKs have always been good investments. I know I'll be buying it myself, eventually. It'll go well with all the painting DVDs I'll be getting when Bones KS3 ships out.

We are producing units for release, probably in September. Best estimates based on the time needed to produce the volume required, mid or latter half September.

Sweet! I'll keep him occupied by sending some of my Bones backlog his way, things that I have duplicates of or don't have any forseeable use for. I think I kind of gave him a bit of a shock when I handed him around 10 paints that I had gotten duplicates of through the old metal LTPKs, so I'll add to it by throwing some minis at his face to paint while he waits.


Thanks for the update, Bryan!

One of the congoers who purchased the kit has already completed the three figures and posted them in Show Off if you'd like a preview. I'm so excited to see this one finally heading out to release. It was a bit of an adventure to get it there and a lot of work went into it on both my part and Reaper's. I'm really hoping that people will find it fun and useful.

I can't wait for this one to drop. I still don't really understand the difference between washing and glazing, and it should hit me right in the sweet spot skill wise. And I'll be telling my coworker about it as soon as it becomes available. I haven't talked to him in a few months due to different schedules, so I don't know if he's still painting, but hopefully he'll still pick this up.


For a future kit might I suggest Armor Up: Non-Metallic Metals? After all, there's those nice NMM triads coming out next year...

If Reaper follows the old LTPK path, then NMM would be next in line. Though, if they follow the Internet's recommended path, then they will wait on NMM and go to Flesh and Skintones. All of this assumes Reaper and Wren continue to make them (*fingers crossed*).

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
