Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

At this point, based upon how many of my minis  from Bones 1, 2, and 3 have been painted, my Bones 4 figures will be painted by my granddaughters. :B):

I looked through my stash of Bones 2 minis yesterday and can proudly say that I painted about ... 50 of them (in addition to other minis like Zombicide etc). I have painted one or two minis from Bones 3 ... so ... I can't wait for Bones 4 to arrive ;)

 

The barge is great, I might add another one so I have two: one to leave in the original state, the other to see if any and how much bash-kitting is possible.

Someday I will paint dragons don’t share and the worlds biggest undead dragon lol.

 

out of curiosity, where do people put their HUGE models? Do you have a designated shelf? I have a display cabinet but it’s an antique and I think a dragon would take up  half the shelf.

Honestly, when they arrive and get painted.... I have no idea. I'll be living in a shoebox. Good chance some will have to go on my ceiling.

I’m  trying really hard to resist getting more, because the Harryhausen fan in me wants to have the marble statues, the bronze ones, the golden ones, the silver ones, etc....

 

 

Remember that the Greeks are thought to have painted their marble statues to be more realistic looking. (The world's first maxiatures.)

 

I wonder how smooth their blends were?

 

:rolleyes:

I think they need to be painted as gaudy mosaics at least once :poke:

 

 

Gosh that that would be fun to try....

Paint? No, for a mosaic look, you should really use glitter, applied one bit at a time.

 

It's the Vegas way.

 

::D:

 

 

With glitter,.... interesting....

Most of them live on my mantel.   My Spawn are allowed to play with those, as long as they are returned. 

 The PF dragon fits in the small display cabinet on my desk. (middle shelf) - it has elaborate/delicate basing. 

The DDS dragon has moved to the mantel and the kingdom death Phoenix perches on top the case instead.

At the moment all of my minis big and small live on tv trays set up in the corner of my gaming room, where the DM sits so he can grab anything he needs.... 

 

Of course, when Bones 4 gets here I'll be more than tripling the number of minis, and more than octupling (8x) the number of large and above minis... so I plan on setting up shelves in the GM's corner of the room to hold all of the minis.. I'm thinking the shelves will start roughly a foot away from each window at the height of the TV trays and go up by a foot or a foot and a half per shelf. The huge ones will probably all end up on one of the higher shelves/the top shelf.

I haven't painted any of my large minis. For one thing, I'm moving in less than a year, so I don't fancy just packing them away after they've been put together and painted. And when I do get them together and painted, I'd like to have one (or more) of those nice IKEA glass shelves to put them in. I do have a wide wall shelf that they could fit in now. But... above listed issues.

FYI, Craigslist and Swip-Swap groups are great for things like Detolf display cases and Kallax storage shelves.

 

Those store my board games, and my display minis.

 

I am planning to get more Kallax shelves along with Alex drawers for storing my plano trays of minis and my terrain.

The only good thing about being made to traipse around IKEA with my dear wife is that I get to plan more units to store figures in.

 

Oh, and buy meatballs and gravlax!

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
