I agree, adding the extra tentacles makes it look even better.

 

Good paintjob too!

This Fellow & his predecessor are SPLENDIDLY painted creations...the older version does have an edge in that it is BEAUTIFULLY based. Your choice of colors is OUTSTANDING as is your deft work with the brush. ..I love the teeth & claws. VERY WELL DONE!

Hi everyone, thanks for your comments I appreciate. I was not sure about the conversion at first, but now that it's painted I do like it a lot too.

I also prefer when minis are mounted on nice thematic bases. The reason I didn't set this one on a base yet, is because it's supposed to be part of a diorama.

      Here is the Wyvern from the Bones 4 Core set. I really like the built-in scenic base - another nice sculpt from the set.

      This is the Rat Ogre from the Bones 4 Core set (#12). It is a beautiful sculpt and casting.

       
      The base is a piece of cork sheet gouged out with the muck made from the bits. The bubbles are drops of super glue. The water is just painted and given a gloss coat.

      From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini also is in the kickstarter. The January freebie owlbear was not a KS mini, so I assumed the Febuary one would be seperate too. So I will be getting another of this mini with the KS shipment.
      So anyway..."Bones Black". a darker grey, much harder, less unbreakable, and heavier material than the regular "Bonesium" Bones material. This new material was a bit of a surprise when announced not too long ago, as there was no mention of it in the Kickstarter. They have gone and produced many of the kickstarter minis in this new material (as in all the expansions, but not the core set). I understand that this material requires a different type of mould which is more expensive to make and maintain, so the Bones Black minis will be slightly more expensive at retail than comparable regular Bones. Reaper is on record stating that they chose the name as it sounded cool. The minis are not actually black, just dark grey.
      My first impressions of the material is that it is actually quite similar -but not identical- to both Restic and the newer Boardgame plastic such as used in HATE. It is very hard and diffcult to cut or bend when at room temperature. I suspect there is ABS in the PVC mix here.
      However, it still responds well to heat (near-boiling water) and goes rubbery soft and reposable just like other PVC minis. When soft, it is comparatively easy to slice with a scalpel hobby knife. Just like Restic, it needs a little time for super glue to grab, and when it does, it grabs firmly. It is easy to drill, and what little mould lines there were came off easily enough with said knife. Not quite as easy as polystyrene, but much easier than original Bones. They could actually be scraped, which does not work at all with regular Bones.
      The troll came assembled, and needed gap filling. Reaper has also addressed this issue, stating that the new material has slightly different tolerances and shrinkage than the original Bones. They have been adjusting the connection points to compensate to avoid such gaps going forward.
      At any rate, my impressions of the Bones Black material are mostly favorable. The biggest con would be that is seems slightly more brittle than the original Bones (that can be thrown around without taking damage), but I have not had any issues with neither this Troll or the Owlbear, so I can't really say.  When the KS arrives I will be able to look at many more minis in this material, so we shall see whether this will be any issue.
      The quality of the details do seem to be rather better than earlier Bones, and this is the reason Reaper has introduced the material in the first place. Again, the smaller minis from the KS will be the proof of the pudding.
       
       
      Should have lit it better...


      And it is BIG! Actually as tall as the Storm Giant, and larger then the new GW Rockgut Troggoths (aka stone trolls)

       
      A quick and sloppy paint job. I started with a black undercoat, and painted the whole piece with a very dark blue. Then I drybrushed the trunk of the body with three different purples, with red on the stomach and chest. I drybrushed the arms and head with Vallejo Nocturna Shadow and ditto Cold Flesh, the belt and loincloth also in Shadow, with Deep Forest Skin for highlights, mixed a bit on my palette for a couple of shades highlighting. The claws and nails were also done in the greens. The leg of cured meat or large pouch (you choose) in browns.
      The crystals and eyes I did in Scalecolor Tesla Blue and Carribean Blue with Reaper Aircraft Grey highlight. This was a bit sloppy as seen in the photos.
      Teeth in Aircraft Grey.
      Base as usual, and it turns out my new Vallejo Black is really glossy.
      All in all the mini took less than an hour to paint.

      Just a random mini this time, the Stone Giant from the first expansion of the second Bones kickstarter from 2013.
       
       
      Stone Giants are the smallest of the giants, but still much larger than Conan. And have mothers milk that also can be used as spackle.

      I decided to go with a sapphire troll! He won't last long, I'm afraid, walking around in a world with our greedy loot-crazed bunch.
       
      This guy makes me want to do an entire Terry Pratchett troll series: Ruby, Detritus, Mister Shine, even Chrysoprase in his suit.
       
       



       
       
      Happy painting,
      Laura
