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.

When will the details on this be available? (For example, will it use the new Bones paints and what techniques does it focus on?) I'm fine with no answers now, but I'll be F5-ing when the details are ready to be shared. ::D:

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*).

I spoke with Wren at ReaperCon and they are planning more but she wouldn't give any hints on what the third one will be.

Going to pick it up regardless of which direction they choose to go. These paint kits are amazing and with the added instructions it helps beginning artists. Love the booklet. :D

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
