Bones USA Conversion questions/ideas


Recommended Posts

Hi Reaper Peeps,


I would like to create a hoard of goblins for a project, but I would like to make it so there no exact duplicate goblins....  So I would like to modify each of the goblins slightly and I was wondering if anyone had any experience modifying bones USA models.  Does the hot water trick work on them?  I was thinking of using boiling water and ice water to change the pose a bit from most of them (Marineal's idea.  She is really a genius).  If anyone has experience or ideas I would love to hear them.  I don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't have too.

 The boiling water thing works best when trying to reset a plastic/pvc figure back to its original cast position, but in a general sense, it'll work to varying degrees to reposition the thinner parts of pretty much any plastic/pvc figure. Since the Bones USA material is harder than the original Bones, boiling water might not necessarily provide quite enough heat to reposition a figure quite as well, but it's definitely worth giving it a shot.

As an added thought, if you're looking to reposition various joints significantly you may want to experiment with cutting most of the way through the joint before repositioning it with the water trick, then filling in the gaps with greenstuff, which will also help to hold it in its new position.
