Old Bones, new tricks

And now for the shots of the finished Reaper Bones mini.  Obviously, the original metal version (which I have) is going to sport some crisp details which the BONES material might not translate.

However, it's not fragile in the least.  I demonstrated that by bending the staff and 'wings', and then tossing it across the room.

Also, being this lighter plastic material means that he can more easily reside in the big unit of Tomb Guardians.

It was interesting using the airbrush as the basecoat.  Since it had been so long since I painted any Tomb King stuff (or even looked at it), I could just play around with spraying colors here and there to see what would happen.

Here we have him next to a few of the actual Tomb King minis...

Speaking of throwing minis across the room, the Tomb Kings army has made me consider that once or twice (or more) during a 1-2 turn game!


  1. Not a big fan of the fluo colours and the yellow too blue shading. Looks a bit too sci-fi for me.
    But the bases look great.

    1. If you look at the entire Tomb Kings army (there are nearly 100 posts featuring it!), you will see the story and theme of the army, and why they were done in those colors :-)
