Reaper Miniatures have recently released to retail a number of miniatures from their hugely successful Bones III Kickstarter. One of those sets is the Stone Skull Expansion, which contains a host of various Fantasy themed miniatures.
There are 30 plastic miniatures in this set, created using the white plastic that the current generation of Bones miniatures is famous for.
These are nicely detailed miniatures, which can be used straight out of the box or painted. They come ‘ready for paint’, although it may be that you would want to base undercoat them in some war.
Monsters and heroes both large and small are a feature of this set, providing players with a whole scenario’s worth of miniatures in one box. Most of the figures come with an integral base and any problems with bent swords, etc. can be easily solved by the use of hot water.
These are well-sculpted miniatures, with suitable proportions and numerous applications. They cry out for some careful painting and have enough detail to make shading and paint washes a must. The current Bones material is rumoured to be being phased out and replaced by the ‘Bones Black’ range of hard plastic figures, but the current versions are still some of the cheapest ways to acquire top quality sculpts from excellent sculptors.
