First bone... uh, Reaper Bones miniature

Recommended Posts

This is my filthy first.

 

I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.

It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.

The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

The weird stuff is the bendiness. And the mold lines. It is kinda difficult to figure out what are mold lines, and what is an intentional part of the sculpture design. Kudos to B. Ridolfi for doing such an excellent job on using/hiding the mold lines (that is a difficult thing to do).

The plastic on this figure is nothing like my Games Workshop figures, or the other TSR plastic minis in the collection. Those are all made of a hard plastic...

 

This will be an interesting project. I hope I don't mess it up, but if I do, the store had a couple more copies of the filth beast... (minis...*drool*)

 

This is what it should look like.

It kinda looks like a cross between an otyugh and a cave fisher...

The smaller scale and tiny figures are the most challenging to paint well.

 

And there is always the question of "Why in the #€££! did I spend so much time on this figure when you need an electron microscope to even enjoy the paint job!"

I am hoping my bones figures will procreate like rabbits.

 

...but, what would be the offspring of 2 bones dwarves and one bones filth beast?

I think my first painted Bones were several of the Tre Manor orcs in similar colour schemes. Either those or it the Bones rats, in grey, brown, black, and white schemes.

 

They were probably the first minis I painted in over 15 years.

My first Bones I painted was the Gnoll Warrior 77012, at least according to the forums, in early 2013, while we were still waiting on Bones 1.

 

Bones reproducing would explain why my unpainted Bones storage seems fuller every time I open it.....

I can pretty much say with certainty my first Bones mini was the orc used in the learn to paint kits. If not him, it was a skeleton, but I can't remember which one they have you do first... 

 

I now have a... Reasonably sized stash of them, but nowhere near the size a lot of other forum members have...

Oh, probably. Especially if we factor in the CAV III minis. There's "a few" of those too...

 

 Next year it's going to mainly be dragons though, assuming I can get a few things rolling after I take care of these last few things the most recent twist work threw into the works... Two of pretty much every dragon in the Kickstarter...

Time to get some more storage boxes...

I already have three more bookshelves and two wall shelves planned for one particular wall, then probably more shelves on a different wall in the living room, and then for the bedroom?  You guessed it.  A good amount of shelves!

      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.

      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?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received
