Crowley's Bugbear Weapon Swaps

Recommended Posts

The bugbears that came in Bones 3 (the 4 identical ones) all had really floppy maces. Last night I decided to do something about that. One got a plastic ax from the weapons sprues, while the other is getting a spear based on a bamboo skewer. I'll be adding a proper spear to the tip of the skewer made out of greenstuff, but I need to make it first.

I love doing Bones weapon swaps, however I would like to suggest something more!! I would love to see you cut the bamboo spear guy's arm and rotate it so that he's holding a longer version of the spear across his body and into his other hand. You should just leave the shield there!

Excellent idea! I'll do that with one of the other 2 still waiting for their swaps!

Tonight I pinned the hands and then green stuffed in the missing bit of elbow and some new armor.

Bit more work on these guys. I decided the 2 handed weapon would be a big ax blade type thing. Still need to add a bit of details to it, but the blade is attached. And the guy with the spear? Or what I thought was gonna be a spear... well turns out that it's a spiked ball from a GW beastman kit.

Tonight I converted the last one to hold a sword, and gave him a Warhammer Bretonian Men at arms shield. I also glued everyone onto 40mm GW bases (that I'm pretty sure were from some Riders of Rohan...)

Also appearing is the WotC Chainmail Bugbear (I'd love Reaper to sculpt one of their bugbears in this pose) and the original Bones Bugbear I painted forever ago.
