Going a Little Mental Over Elementals

Reaper Bones bare plastic after a good scrubbing and being attached to a base.

Looks sort of like a Snow Elemental right now.

 

Now that I’ve seen what Duane, my Greater Earth Elemental, can do in Kings of War it is clear I need another of these guys.  Heck, I need a Horde of Lesser Earth Elementals but am still seeking the right minis. Until then Duane and the guy above will have to hold their own.  I am really pleased with these castings and it just reinforces my belief that big things with shallow details is what Bones plastic is best at.  Even though they tower over the rest of the army (not hard as they are dwarfs) they are light weight.  Add their low cost and they are the perfect choice to add some punch to my dwarf army.

Duane the Earth Elemental

Despite being made of rock the miniature has nice movement.

EarthEl2

Tried to mix up the earth tones of the figure while blending them with the base.

EarthEl4

That’s some serious reach on the guy.

I love the fossil embedded in the stone of his shoulder.

 

Duane was a fun one to paint and fairly easy to prep not to mention very fast paint job.  As with other Bones figures I find it easiest to shave along mold lines with a brand new x-acto blade.  The rocky surface made it easy to see most of the imperfections. The new guy on the other hand is all textures and shapes.  Of course that also made him quite the enjoyable undertaking.  Too bad I don’t have any 25mm squirrels to add on to him.

No name yet but he’s ready to go

Those big fists are going to bring the smack down.

NatureEle3

Like Duane, this fellow is covered in tiny details and natural textures.

NatureEle4

Like the forest floor just got up and started walking.

NatureEle2

I’ll need more Stone Priests to help them shamble faster.

I added some Army Painter grass tufts and flowers

Be seeing you on the battle field.
