Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure the horse is immortal or undead, cause it's there waiting for me every update when I start obsessively checking for the update by 3 pm.


The sirens being translucent was a selling point for me. I just hope they go light on the color, so that it can have some washes and dry brushing on it without becoming opaque. I got a couple of oozes from Bones 4 and they're so dark that I wouldn't attempt to put more paint on them beyond maybe a supremely light dry brush.

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

Why not?


Most of us (I think) prime before we get to painting anyway, so it's just a matter of how carefully you prime.


I've painted a few translucents.

Those I wanted to use as ghosts worked fine.


But I still find even after priming, translucents have lost some detail when compared to the normal material.

I stay clear from translucents when I don't need them as ghosts,

I have had no issues painting translucents to be opaque, as long as I've had decent cover, and I'm glad the sirens are translucent specifically because it allows  them to blend into the water easier. I wish they weren't tinted, because I prefer translucents to be colorless so they can be tinted however I want, but I get why they are.

I really can't see the problem: translucent? Primer = no more translucent. :winkthumbs:


Still I find the translucent ones have less detail than the normal ones.

Could just be me of course, but with the ones I have I can barely make out faces, of course I use those as ghosts.

Welcome! As a fair warning, I think we all say things like, "set for life" after our first Bones Kickstarter. Doesn't stop us from backing the next one.

I've painted at least the equivalent of a full one... over my 3+ soon to be 4+

The Auld Grump - we have... a couple of stuffed drawers... and paint only when we need when we are painting. (Mostly.)

      I leave this here:


      Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!
      NSFW link:
      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
