2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others. A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.
I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color. He goes out in the mail on Monday
Hope you like him too...

Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try. I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces.
I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them. So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
That's all for right now.
Arrgh! This week we be havin a dreadful lot o' ghostly pirates that'll be sendin shivers down yer timbers.
This accursed crew of damned delinquents are the Ghost Pirates from Bones 4, or the soon-to-be-released Ghosts of the Drowned Nymph (77745) and the Shades of the Drowned Nymph (77747). I painted these up similarly to the way I painted the spiritual glow of my Demi Lich. But I didn't want them to all just be blue so I went for a transitional look. As if they are materializing out of the ethereal plane. They may have looked fine either way, but I tend to enjoy lots of colors in my minis. I also chose to paint over nearly all of the translucent material. I think I'm officially in the paint-over-it camp.
Read on for More Photos:
These guys were quite a bit of fun to paint. Check out their WIP and my other piratey minis here.
Which ghost is your favorite?
Also, where do you stand on the translucent mini debate? Paint over them? Washes and drybrush? Or leave them as is?

Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.
The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters. Im a slow painter.
I decided to pick a few out to paint. I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed. replaced it
Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly. Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
I would show pics but I dont wanna...
My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures, Are they being cast in this new grey material?
