Monday Miniatures: Something Familiar
This week we take another crack at a whole pile of themed minis. The familiar bundle was one of the final stretch goals for the Kickstarter. Though we still have a long way to go, it does make for a nice milepost.
Between the flu, and the poor sculpt quality, I had little luck making any of these come out the way I wanted. Bones (in my opinion) really shine when it comes to the low cost very large models. As a material, it does no kindnesses to small pieces of details. The wolf is the only one I’m even a little happy with.
Magnus had a wonderful variety of color schemes. I think that his fire bat is especially cool, though I do love the house cat inspired by a certain mount of He-Man.
Kylie’s bases really steal the show on this one. I mean her painting is great, especially the eagle, but to take the time to craft each of these little tiny mini’s a custom base of their own? Really outstanding work.
Bettina did a wonderful job, both in the quality and variety of her colors. Her fairy dragon is my favorite of the bunch, though I love the ferret too.
Last but not least we have Dirk’s contribution. The fox is basically amazing. You don’t really know just how amazing until you see just how tiny that mini really is.
Bat Swarm – I think this is one of the weakest minis in the entire bones collection. Let’s see what we can do to fix that. Please send pictures to Caffeineforge@gmail.com by 2100 MDT on 7/27/14
