One thing I love about the Bones figures is the ease in doing conversions. On this particular figure, it took me all of 5 minutes to remove his arm, drill, add a pin and reposition the arm to hold the sword more across his body. I also drilled and added a long pin to one of his legs to give him strength; the plastic is a little bendy. I'm not worried about him breaking at the ankles, I just wanted that movement limited so as not to stress and crack or tear the paint (though the acrylic has a lot of flexibility; I just like to be safe with figures that will get a lot of play on the table.)
Other than these, I haven't painted much in the past couple weeks. I've been watching over the Low Life Miniatures and Dreadball Kick Starters. Along with Jeff and Charlie's Bones figures, I'm going to have minis to paint for the rest of this and next year. My luck, that's going to be when all the cool shit comes out.
I do have a few more Reaper figures on the way, though- stuff I can paint for me before the Boneswarm. A nice swordsman and a few random things I picked up (mushroom men, hordlings) that will go well with the Low Life stuff.
I love the reaper figures, ordered a few dozen of them just for their lookReplyDelete
The vibrant colours on these combined with deep, oily metallics produce a really dramatic style that really makes them stand out as a set. I think they'll look great in play!ReplyDelete
