A couple of things really stood out here. The Bones plastic crew has nearly the same sharpness of detail as the Resin crew. I was certainly not expecting that and my original thoughts were to have the Bones crew in supporting positions. Since the level of detail is nearly the same I don't need to be nearly as concerned as I was prepared to be. That being said it is a lot easier to modify and convert the Bones crew so any modifications I need between these will definitely be worked on them. At this point I'm wishing that the old Reaper Boneyard existed for the Bones miniatures, I would likely get another whole set of them just for conversions.
The other detail that stands out is that almost all the Bones crew are taller than the Resin crew. That will help differentiate between the miniatures with a little less effort. Which is something else I was already thinking about when I made the order. A set of male and female militia heads to swap out with the squad heads to add more visual interest. Hopefully it will all come together, I can see the scene in my head, its the translation that is difficult.
|The resin artillery crew from Victoria Miniatures. They are in the same poses as the Bones artillery crew from Reaper. Unfortunately it looks like I'm missing a hand for the gentleman on the far right in the photo.|
|The gentleman on the left is slight different with his right hand cast separately. He is a single casting in Bones.|
|There is quite a difference in height between these two.|
|These pair is much closer in height but will be on opposite sides of the gun so it won't be a problem|
|These two are also pretty close in height, but I'm likely to only use one of them unmodified.|
|I didn't line this one up quite right, the man on the right is actually significantly taller than his compatriot.|
|It was hard to line this pair up, I think the Bones version is still a bit taller.|
|And here we actually see the resin officer is taller than the Bones officer.|
