In the past few months I’ve picked up some random scatter terrain from the Reaper Bones line. These make for great affordable little pieces. The plastic really lends itself to the blocky shapes.
It started with the Tardis / police box. I figure a Tardis could belong in just about any setting across time and space. Next came the Cthulhu pillar, as a compliment for my Dust monsters, though again it can fit it just about anywhere. Finally, I grabbed the altar as dungeon dressing for Relicblade.
Speak of Relicblade, I also got these as treasure tokens. I have no idea who made them. It came in an unmarked blister package with a SKU written in sharpie on a postit. The receipt from the shop claimed it was from Deep Wars, but I’m pretty sure that’s a lie. In any case, they’re resin, and the casting is a bit sloppy but it works well enough as a marker.
I got this model way back when in the original Reaper Bones Kickstarter. He’s been on the shelf, assembled, biding his time for several years. I decided to use him as a test model for the Dust Mythos Cthulhu monsters. But then I got impatient and painted them all at the same time.
This model is seriously huge, and mostly a solid, heavy, chunk of PVC. So far he doesn’t have any game purposes, but he does like to supervise my hobby desk.
Ruth, my four-year-old daughter, has been very interested in my hobby stuff. She asks to see what I’m working on. She especially liked the egg that came the Wyrd Easter order. So I asked her if she’d like to paint it. Of course, she said yes.
She helped me wash the model, and I cleaned up the seam lines and glued it to the base. She primed it with the airbrush (with some help), and eventually we found a time to actually paint it.
I worked on a different model, but Ruth was much faster. She soon asked for another. Luckily I had some random Reaper stuff primed, so gave her a second. This one she said was sitting on the sun. My wife suggested glitter for the basing material.
