First Mini of 2019 -Reaper Bones Cthulhu Statue

Finished shortly after midnight on January 1, this was an easy series of drybrushed layers over a dark basecoat. Another Cthulhu-themed statue from the Reaper Bones Kickstarters.

The very basic color choices help this piece fit into almost any setting I might need. I was mad at myself for not knocking thsi one out earlier.

Sleazy Merchant and alleged Crime Lord Hรคbo (Forge of Ice shows off his latest acquisition as one of his dancers (Basti from Crocodile Games) and a business associate (Dark Fable) stand by. 

Great Uncle Thulu (West Wind- Empire of the Dead) admires a family heirloom.

The Scroll Traveller (converted Bones figure with a WarGods Tethru head), Mr. Brown (slightly converted skull from Dragon Forge Designs), and the Minismith (converted Void 1.1 militia) examine this dark artifact to determine what sort of threat to it could pose to reality...

Final 2018 Minis- Black Crab Miniatures 'Bone Prophets'

These were the last miniatures finished up in 2018 but only recently photographed. From the short but sweet Kickstarter campaign from Black Crab Miniatures. I was trying to think of what to call them since there is no official title for the trio and settled on "the Bone Prophets." They are likely going to see duty in some dark far-future narrative skirmish gaming.

Very nice resin figures that needed little clean up. The guy on the left had a little mishap while I was removing him from the sprue so that the spikes ont he top of his 'hat' were damaged enough that I removed them entirely as can be seen below.

I was very tempted to convert this guy's head and/or hand with some techy bits but resisted the urge.

Some other miniatures for a sense of scale- here we have the Governor and his entourage (Colony 87 and converted Malifaux) striking a deal with the Bone Prophets.

Finally, the War Doctor (Heresy Miniatures) fends off the Bone Prophets and their maddening scheme.
