Ranger Danger Horde
Whenever i'm taking a break from my comics project i try to tackle the pile of miniatures that i got from the Bones kickstarter. But i wasn't really feeling like painting, so i actually just picked out some of the least interesting figures, figuring that i'd just knock them out and it didn't matter if i wasn't feeling particularly inspired. I deliberately picked out figures that could be painted in similar color schemes (for the most part) to save time and thinking. So that worked out to be three rangers and a few others randos. Actually, four of these figures are not Bones; they were given to me by a friend.
Here are the rangers. The two with the round bases are not Bones. As usual, the Bones are frustrating in the way the detail smushes together; the third Ranger has a blob for a face.
Here are two bards. I actually painted the halfling a little earlier and gave him more attention because i'm playing a halfling bard in a campaign run by a (different) friend. The other bard is posed like a rock star and has a lute that looks more like an electric guitar, but i didn't take the bait and i painted the instrument brown. I did let her have some punk rock stripes in her hair. This picture came out a little blurry but i've already noted my apathy.
This is probably the most nice looking figure in that she's standing on a giant dragon head. Of course, that's not very useful in a game. Does she drag that head around with her the whole time, reminding people how awesome she is because of that time she beheaded a dragon?
Another non-Bone. Another blurry pic, but he's got a cool looking face, and armored guys are always easy to paint.
The final figure (excluding the scorpions, who aren't worth a close-up) is also a non-Bone. And he's pretty interesting, actually. He's got a normal barbarian human kind of body, but his face is some sort of insectoid thing. Not sure if it's meant to be mask or if he's some kind of insect-man hybrid. He'll work either way.

I believe it's supposed to be a mask in the shape of a boar.
Turbo boost, etc, etc.
He's definitely got a boar's head attached to his tunic, but what's on his face looks different. No snout, and what look more like mandibles than tusks. Hard to see in the pic. In any event, he'll be usable for a variety of things.
Halfling? You're still using that term in the 21st century? I expected better from you.😄
The Tolkien estate's lawyers won't let me say "Hobbit".
Reference from SuperMegaMonkeySo i while back i did this, and now they've arrived. Four months late but as far as Kickstarters go that's nothing. Ummm, painters wanted? I'm considering using them unpainted to start with so that they don't just sit in... Read More: What have i gotten myself into?
