Bones Progress


This is my haul from working on the Reaper booth at PAX 2016.  I actually have quite a bit of progress done, and as I mentioned earlier, I want to get these done before I get my collection back.  Which, by the way, is likely to be in the next month with my new job I started yesterday.  Woot!


First off the bat was my victorious Pathfinder rogue and a Paint and Take Dwarf.


Orcus has been glued and filled.  I think he deserves a better base later on, but I don't want to put him on hold for that.


I have pushed most of the others forward, but nothing complete yet.  Stone Golem is closest.  I may do something a bit fancier with him.


The one that is really concerning me is the spider woman. Her legs aren't the best for basing, and I suspect I will heat bend them and replace one or two with wire and putty for strength. That is making me put the project off.  Boo.

Anyhoo, next on the table is some sculpting commissions, then I press on with these babies until they are done.

What you working on?

  1. I love those mushroom people. Have been eyeing them for ages without committing, but I think this might be the call to go and get them. Your paint-jobs are as always fantastic and inspiring.

    1. Thank you! I got two packs and plan to make a skirmish encounter warband with them. Maybe convert some.

  2. Awesome progress and that is great news on your collection!!!! Ya the spider lady is a tough one. I ended up giving mine to my daughter to play with, as I couldnt get a good base for her, and she has a way of popping off from her spider body. ;)

    3. Excellent. I sat with a little girl at Cancon and showed her how to paint her unicorn. It was wonderful welcoming her to the hobby.

  3. Nice progress on getting all of those models cleaned up and painted! That is a noble effort trying to get them all done in a month, but it looks like you are well on your way!

    Having been involved in the hobby for quite awhile, I always left painting to one of my brothers. I recently purchased a few Reaper Bones miniatures and have started to try my hand at painting. It has been fun! Bones has a nifty skeleton outlaw/cowboy that I finished not long ago!

    1. The Reaper starter kits are really good- I think a new one is inbound. I look forward to doing a 101 when I get my camera!

  4. Great progress. I don't own much Bones models but I've pinned some parts just for added strentgh and to avoid some ridiculous flexibility in places.
    A great bunch of finished models like this is a soothing sight.

  5. Fantastic! Love the colours you are using and the use of red on the dwarf's base. The idea for those bases will be stolen for some of my mini's! Just so you know...
