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.

      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/)

      Finally starting to make headway on KS3! Having kids, mirite?

      I finished the Obsidian Crypt from the Bones 3 kickstarter. I looked at lots of photos of old mausoleums for inspiration. Now, I just need to finish the fence and all of the main cemetery parts will be finished. Then just ghouls, golems, worms, etc to do to complete the entire expansion.
       
      I had fun flocking the crypt. I resembled Oscar the Grouch by the time I was finished!
       
      I put a couple flickering LED candles inside the crypt to emulate torchlight/candlelight and thought it turned out pretty cool!

      I created a little Graveyard.
      The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper.
      The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set.
      The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.
       
      Enjoy!
