77959 Graveyard and fencing

Recommended Posts

I've decided to tackle the Graveyard/Mausoleum/Church building, along with the fencing(x2) and various tombstones and other pieces.

I'm a bit confused on what these pieces are. 8 came in the expansion and 4 more in the separate fencing add on in the third kickstarter. What are they and what are they used for?

I also thought I remembered that there were supposed to be skull fence post toppers included but I can't find that anywhere.

Toppers are in Bones 4.

 

I do recall a conversation on here that those are stoppers for the pillars.

I knew I read something about toppers! Thanks.  

These fit well at the bottom. I thought it was a typo, but are they meant to be placed spike side down on the bottom of the pillars? 

The KS3 page doesn't show them at all.

I've been looking at those pieces too wondering what to do with them. I think the pillars are supposed to go with the wide part at the top and they plug the hole. But why the spiky part? Never did figure it out.

I filed down about 1/8" from the front and back of the roof so it can be taken off with the church intact. There are rivets right above the gap at the back that I have to angle the roof to remove it.  

I'm ok with that gap, but is there a way to get rid of it while still being able to remove the roof?

What I did with mine was not glue the walls together. They grip pretty tight as it is. So when I want to remove the roof I just wiggle one of the end pieces open a bit to let the roof come out.

That is not a conclusion that I would have come up with.  

I think I'm going to go with the bottom(wider part) facing up, cutting the pour gate off, putting a magnet on the inside, and putting washers under the KS4 toppers to swap out whenever.  

Thank you very much?

My four walls would not sit 100% flush when pieces together. The bottom half of the back wall would have a slight gap.

Guess I was right about how it's supposed to be assembled just didn't know why the copyright stuff was there. I'll just file/sand it off when I get back to my fences.

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.

      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?

      I did this one a while ago. My first attempt to recreate the painted version on the packaging. I'm just missing the foliage. This was super fun! :D

      I picked up an airbrush kit on sale back in November. It came with two brushes, a compressor, and some other stuff.
       
      Here is a picture:

       
      The brush that I have been using mostly so far is the Badger Patriot 105. I say mostly because I have sprayed paint through it more than once, lol. I started with the bottom fed one (the 350) for one sitting of like 30 minutes, then tried another sitting with the 105 for like 30 minutes.
       
      I have since used the 105 for something like three sittings of 30-60 minutes. My total airbrush experience is something like 2.5 hours plus another 1.5 hours of cleaning and practice assembly.
       
      I have primarily just tried primers. The latest attempt has been applying Vallejo Surface Primer (black) to some of the graveyard set, namely the crypt and the fencing.
       
      Here are those results (minus a rogue golem arm that missed being airbrushed until I cleaned up and was later brushed with the same color in order to prevent having to clean the airbrush for one piece):

       
      I am thinking that I might try and use my Dwarven Forge paints to make this match the Dungeon terrain I have, but am not sure yet...and if I do go that route, would it be better to go with my typical dry rush route or should I be trying to apply colors on top of this with the airbrush? Or is there a different approach that I should be taking?

      Hi all,
      Here is my take on the Graveyard Golem that came with the Crypt expansion in Bones 3.
       

       
      I tried to give its eyes an eerie glow to show what evil animates it and it also matches the glow in painted on the runes inside the crypt. (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77887-crypt-graveyard-expansion/)
