Reaper Bones Review: Stone Lurker (*****) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Tentacle, Bones, Legs

Reaper Bones Review: Stone Lurker (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: There are some things you just can't sculpt as well in resin. Reaper knows this, which is why this roper -- excuse me, "stone lurker" -- has tentacles that are made of bendy plastic. I had no idea for the longest time that ropers weren't just big stalagmites with tentacles, but were actually sticky

Reaper Bones Review: Sir Malcolm - Templar Lightbringer (*****) Holy Symbol, Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Bones, Miniatures, Legs

Reaper Bones Review: Sir Malcolm - Templar Lightbringer (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Sir Malcolm originally started out as a Crusader Sergeant, but in his transition to bonesium, Reaper changed his title to Templar Lightbringer. The effect is the same: a bald guy with a huge sword in one hand, a shield in the other, and a holy symbol dangling from his waist. And also, he's bald -- y

Reaper Bones Review: Dub Bullock, Rogue (**) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Rogues, A Good Man

Reaper Bones Review: Dub Bullock, Rogue (**) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: I really wanted to love this sculpt. Dub Bullock looks like he's normally a nice guy, but someone pushed him over the edge, and now his hair is a mess and he's about to correct all that with his fists (or the dagger behind his back). The problem is how it converted to bonesium.As you can see, there

Reaper Bones Review: Hobgoblin Warriors (*****) Call Of Cthulhu, Hobgoblin, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Warriors, Bones, Miniatures, Legs

Reaper Bones Review: Hobgoblin Warriors (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: I wasn't happy with the hobgoblin leader in this same series because I couldn't tell what he was. Thanks to the distinctive facial profile of this figure, I knew exactly who I was dealing with.This is essentially your bog-standard hobgoblin, with sword and shield. His leg armor is a little strange (

Reaper Bones Review: Rhaegar, Male Fighter (****) Dungeon Tiles, Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Iconic Characters, Michael J, Paladin, Program Design, Sword, Bones

Reaper Bones Review: Rhaegar, Male Fighter (****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Pathfinder iconic characters are known for their detailed amount of equipment they carry, and this miniature would fit right in -- but it's not a member of the Pathfinder line. In addition to his sword and shield, he has a dagger dangling from his front along with several pouches and a horn. The pro

Reaper Bones Review: Rogan, Half-Orc Thief (*****) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Barbarian, Goblin, Sword, Bones, Lion Sculpture, Dark

Reaper Bones Review: Rogan, Half-Orc Thief (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: There was a time when the only class half-orcs were ever associated with was the assassin class. Rogan reminds me of the D&D toy, Zarak the evil half-orc assassin. Yes kids, there was a time when half-orcs were not considered barbarian brutes but shorter, sneaky equivalents of today's goblins.What'

Reaper Bones Review: Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (***) Dungeons And Dragons Figures, Chainmail Patterns, Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Love Painting, Program Design, Diorama, Sword, Elf

Reaper Bones Review: Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (***) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Reaper has the unenviable task of rounding out all characters a game master might use, including the boring ones. And as you can imagine, there are a lot of boring elf archers out there. Despite his cool name, Galadanoth is one of them.It's not that there's anything wrong with this miniature so much

Reaper Bones Review: Mercenary Thug (*****) Dungeon Tiles, Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Program Design, Bones, Miniatures, Legs

Reaper Bones Review: Mercenary Thug (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: I got this sculpt from the Reaper Bones III Kickstarter as part of the Stoneskull Expansion. This miniature isn't new, but rather a remake of an existing thug who doesn't look nearly as menacing as this guy. The original sculpt has a hoodless thug pointing with one finger and wielding a club. That'

Reaper Bones Review: Hobgoblin Captain (****) Lamellar Armor, Call Of Cthulhu, Hobgoblin, Fantasy Races, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Program Design, Bones, Miniatures

Reaper Bones Review: Hobgoblin Captain (****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: It's a tricky thing when certain fantasy races co-opt the appearance of real life historical figures. In this case, I thought this was a samurai wearing a mask when in actuality it's supposed to be a hobgoblin captain.The figure itself is great, with sculptor Bobby Jackson's trademark belt pouch, la

Reaper Bones Review: Vernone, Ivy Crown Knight (*****) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Paladin, Program Design, Ivy, Bones, Knight, Crown

Reaper Bones Review: Vernone, Ivy Crown Knight (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: The original version of Vernone had him in a much less exciting (and probably more difficult to cast) pose. This bonesium version has him in a more traditional stance with his sword pointed at the ground and his shield at the ready. My paint job isn't great, but this miniature is excellent. It's a

Reaper Bones Review: Boris Mingla - Evil Warlord (****) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Paladin, Cloak, Goblin, Bones, Beast, Miniatures

Reaper Bones Review: Boris Mingla - Evil Warlord (****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Boris is proof that just because you're older you can still bring it. He wears a fur cloak and, to show just how much of a badass he is, wields both a huge axe and sword. But the thing that screams "Evil Warlord" about him are the skulls dangling from his belt. Why? I think you mean, "why aren't the

Reaper Bones Review: Thund Bloodwrack, Barbarian (*****) Reaper Miniatures, Fantasy Miniatures, Call Of Cthulhu, Michael J, Barbarian, Bones, Art, Kunst, Art Education

Reaper Bones Review: Thund Bloodwrack, Barbarian (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: I wasn't able to find Thund at first among Reaper's miniatures because I wasn't sure how to categorize him. It turns out "barbarian" works juts fine.Thund isn't subtle. He has an enormous, notched blade that just drips with detail. His axe is overshadowed by that sword, but it's still formidable. Th

Reaper Bones Review: Antipaladin (*****) Reaper Miniatures, Fantasy Miniatures, Warhammer Paint, Call Of Cthulhu, Michael J, Paladin, Rogues, Knight, Lion Sculpture

Reaper Bones Review: Antipaladin (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Every once in awhile I get the urge to paint a bunch of miniatures at once by theme. When you have as many miniatures as I do thanks to backing multiple Reaper Bones Kickstarters, this is easy to do. The theme, as I imagined it, was that the Knights of Agnar would be sword-and-board (sword and shiel

Reaper Bones Review: Eando Kline, Pathfinder (*****) Call Of Cthulhu, Character Poses, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Rogues, Silhouette, Miniatures, Silhouettes

Reaper Bones Review: Eando Kline, Pathfinder (*****) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: Reaper has a lot of amazing sculpts, but so many of them wield impossibly large dual weapons that it's nice to just have a character pose who doesn't look like he's in the middle of battle. Perhaps not surprisingly, Eando Kline looks so different because he's from Pathfinder. And also, he's a pathfi

Reaper Bones Review: Elthin Bluesteel, Gunslinger (**) 28mm Miniatures, Fantasy Miniatures, Call Of Cthulhu, Michael J, Sword, Dragons, Bones, Dark, Detail

Reaper Bones Review: Elthin Bluesteel, Gunslinger (**) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: In transitioning from metal to bonesium, Reaper has often changed the sculpt. They don't usually explain why, but one of the reasons is likely detail -- sculpts that show detail just fine in metal are not nearly as deeply etched in bonesium, which means you can lose a lot of detail. Elthin Blueste

Reaper Bones Review: Grundor Hoardtaker, Mercenaries Sergeant (***) Call Of Cthulhu, Fantasy Miniatures, Michael J, Program Design, Games To Play, Sculpting, Bones, Whittling, Sculpture

Reaper Bones Review: Grundor Hoardtaker, Mercenaries Sergeant (***) | Michael J. Tresca on Patreon

Official Post from Michael J. Tresca: With a name like Gundor Hoardtaker, you can virtually guarantee that he's no accountant. Grundor lives up to his name, with a thick blade in one hand and a large flanged mace in the other. Unfortunately, Grundor's sculpt is a bit rough. There's a dagger dangling from his belt that's oddly-sculpted,
