Lockdown has gotten me returning to abandoned, half started projects. One of which is my fantasy miniatures for Song of Blades and Heroes games. I have owned these rules for years and have never used them. Hopefully I can use them soon.12/05/2020 at 10:49 #136276RhodericMember
They look like dragonslayers as far as I’m concerned. Nice work!

Something inside me decided to really try and paint to a higher standard while we are in lockdown. I have also never painted steel armour so watched some tutorials to see a straightforward method for doing good looking steel. Happy with the results. I keep showing my wife and she is really good at feigning enthusiasm.12/05/2020 at 11:39 #136279mark leslieParticipant
Personally, if I were one of those valiant slayers, I’d feel slightly more confident armed with my very own Sicarius Dracorum.
A Dragon scale shield wouldn’t go amiss either.
Fossilizing nicely.12/05/2020 at 12:08 #136283

…I never said they would win the fight against the dragon. But they can probably handle the dozen undead warriors I have knocking about somewhere.12/05/2020 at 12:14 #136285irishserbParticipant
They do look quite good. I like your dragon as well.12/05/2020 at 19:29 #13630912/05/2020 at 20:12 #136311Mr. AverageParticipant
If one of them is St. George, you’ll do just fine.12/05/2020 at 20:46 #136313
Back in the summer of 2012 I visited my brother in Indiana (USA). This killed two birds with one stone: 1. I wanted to play in the largest Star Wars Miniatures event in the world, having loved that game for a few years prior. 2. I wanted to visit my brother and his wife. While there I sat in a couple of sessions of DnD and played a random new person along for this session. I had always had a passing interest in DnD, but had never pushed the button and played. Fantasy miniatures were lame. Also while there I went to Gencon where I fell in love with Pathfinder, bought a load of dice and got some paraphernalia. I was hooked. I also came across Kickstarter and the Reaper Bones project. I had spare money so went for the full Vampire package and ended up with something like 150 miniatures for $100. It was great. These arrived at the end of 2013 while I was living abroad. They sat in a box for a while until 2014 when I decided to paint up a handful of figures: a bar wench, barman, blacksmith, couple of warriors and archers. Never finished them. Never played an RPG game either since being in Indiana. The whole thing stalled. I bought some Perry Miniatures in 2015 and they went basically untouched. I painted up a dozen or so skeletons but that was it.
Then Lockdown happened. The past week I got my box of half finished fantasy miniatures out and swore I would paint some knights up. At the same time I decided to actually try and improve my painting skills.
And here we stand. Four completed experiments. I am actually quite happy with them.
More to follow. I have the rules Song of Blades and Heroes that I intend to use.
The blue guy looks better in person.14/05/2020 at 14:24 #13639114/05/2020 at 15:09 #136394
Looking really good there. Always great to get deep into the pile and getting some hangers-on painted and done!

What’s the name of these last two minis? Some kind of elf wizard and barbarian?24/06/2020 at 20:25 #138675

I have literally no idea. I did the Reaper Bones Kickstarters 1 and 2 but all of their miniatures are thrown into a big box. I have no idea about whether they have names or not. The Elf is from Kickstarter 2 and has a code 92608, the Barbarian is from Kickstarter 1, but has no other information.25/06/2020 at 10:47 #138712
Thanks. I checked the code on their website and the highest was around 91000 so I guess it’s not up on the store yet.25/06/2020 at 10:51 #138714Angel BarracksModerator25/06/2020 at 11:49 #138725

I have no idea. I had to go back onto their old kickstarter pages to even get you that information.25/06/2020 at 14:11 #138739
All of the minis that are in Bones are also in metal, so you may want to check in the older ranges.

Thanks, guys. unfortunately the search tool is way too useful, after 10 muninutes of playing around I’ve already have 20 figures in teh basket.25/06/2020 at 21:47 #13878916/07/2020 at 20:37 #14049517/07/2020 at 19:49 #140556
I liek the halfling with the bow, I don’t think any of the clothing details has the same color.
I got my Reaper Bones order, and man they are smaller than I thought. Maybe I’m too used to seeing GW heroic minis.26/11/2022 at 22:49 #180543
I love a good thread resurrect. I have perhaps a couple of other fantasy miniatures, which I have painted, but to be honest it has been a while.
Here are a few that I just finished now.27/11/2022 at 11:21 #18055015/02/2023 at 19:52 #18344815/02/2023 at 19:55 #18344917/02/2023 at 11:12 #183506
Neat goblin set – I can see why the one eyed one is your favourite 🙂
If you want a none RPG RPG (I know – that reads odd) then have a look at 4 against darkness by Ganesha – lots of supplement settings and fine to play solo till you can get a full RPG going. There is even a kobold based one and goblin pirates!18/02/2023 at 23:09 #183547

That is an interesting looking book. It says it is not a miniatures game. Does it involve any kind of map? Or is it entirely pen and paper + imagination?18/02/2023 at 23:30 #18354826/09/2023 at 11:38 #190950
After a drought I put some paint on some more miniatures.
Quite chuffed with these guys to be honest. Considering how little I actually manage to paint, I am pleased with how they have turned out.26/09/2023 at 11:39 #19095126/09/2023 at 12:14 #190952
Nice – the touch of ‘royal purple’ goes well (esp if they are the bad guys).26/09/2023 at 14:26 #190953
They came out great. I like the much more realistic proportions of the figures as compared to some others that scale that are over-muscled looking.
