A couple of Bones 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
I never painted any of the Reaper Bones before I pledged for their Kickstarter. So, I bought a couple to try out. Now I am even happier about my pledge. Of course everything looks good posed with Dwarven Forge!

Looks good! Did you paint them right out of the package? I was curious if the polymer takes paint well without priming as advertised.

No primer used, just paint. I used the Reaper HD paints for the base coat, wash, and drybrushing. On the troll, I used some Vallejo to highlight the warts or whatever those bumps are. Those HD are excellent paints, just wish there were more colors available.

I had heard a while back that the material used for the Bones line was very accepting to most paints and didn't need to be primed. I have one of their minis that I've been meaning to paint but so far haven't had time.

Thanks, good know. I enjoy painting, but not the prep, so I'm glad to hear that I can grab a mini and jump right in. With the large amount of Bones coming my way from the Kickstarter the time savings will certainly add up.

Yeah, I've got quite a few Bones coming from the Kickstarter too! I only wish I had more $ that I could have invested in it! :-)

Feymous, regarding paint prep, try Games Workshop spray primer.
Available in chaos black and skull white, works wonderfully.

One thing re Bones. I originally tried using acrylic craft paint on the werewolf, just to see how it would do. It works, but not nearly as well as paint designed for mini painting (which is to be expected). Craft paint works ok on plastic minis, seemed a bit slippery on the Bones mini. I ended up ditching that idea and finished with Reaper HD paints.

I've painted a couple of Bones minis now and they have painted up quite nicely using Reaper HD (High Density) paints or Reaper MSP (Master Series) paint. They don't require primer. In fact, some people have reported problems with flaking paint if they used certain primers on the Bones plastic minis, but no problems if they skip the primer and use Reaper paints.

Here is a Bones dwarf mini I painted up using Reaper paints with no primer.

I like that troll and werewolf. I may have to pick up those Bones to try painting them too.
