I went on a Reaper BONES buying spree, trying to collect all the Dwarfs they had. I love reaper bones minis for several reasons. The big one is they are cheap and easy to convert. I had originally collected all these guys for Frostgrave, but lately Song of Blades and Heroes has begun to fill that spot.
left mini I replaced the greatsword with a gromril hammer from the Hammerers kit. The right mini was simply replacing the religious icon with a pair of tongs holding a smoking rune from the Runelord kit. He was originally supposed to be my enchanter wizard for Frostgrave.
two, I replaced what they were holding (crossbow and spear) with good ol' dwarf handguns from the Thunderers kit. I also sculpted on proper dwarf beards, as all members of my warband should have. These are smaller beards, so they are the young members, beardlings, if you will.
left mini I just sculpted on a young beard, as well as with the right mini. These guys are the trappers and mancatchers of my warband.
This mini was originally supposed to be a construct for my Frostgrave wizard, he still definitely has a place in my warband as the stone beard I sculpted on him fits with the theme perfectly.
this book. It's just a cool concept and very fitting I think. The mini on the right is complete, I just added a face shield on the rider, barding on the bear, and replaced her sword with a dwarf axe. All these bits I gather are from the Warriors kit. The mini on the left was a much bigger conversion project, and a little daunting at first. The bear is metal, and was one of the minis I bought as I was experimenting for which bear head I needed for my Lord-Celestant conversion. Since the bear wasn't going to work, I just stored him away, thinking I may need him later. Well I wanted 2 bear riders, so I figured this mini could be reposed. I just cut away at her armour and by sticking her in boiling water I could spread her legs a little wider and she would keep shape. Then with greenstuffing for the saddle and bits for barding, she was complete!
I own more Bones Dwarfs, but I kept them pretty much as is. And here they are, all named and profiled, ready for a basic game of Song of Blades and Heroes!
