Crypt from Reaper

I got this crypt from Reaper’s Bones III Kickstarter a while ago.
I wasn’t very impressed actually, as everything was rather smooth and the roof was probably supposed to be metal… not my cup of tea. Had to modify it a bit to be the way I wanted it.
Four strong magnets hold the base. Pretty impressive.
First I planted magnets in all corners of the crypt and in the base, so that I could use the base if I wanted to, or something else if that would be better.
Then I had to shave of a lot of plastic from the roof as I wanted it removable. Now it slots on and off.
The door is NOT wide enough to let a mini with a 25mm base through. That is rather stupid...
After that I got an idea and painted everything that I thought should be stone (including the roof) with Vallejo Oxid Paste to get a nice texture. I got a jar of that paste that I hadn’t used for anything, and this was a good reason to actually open it. Some of it got on the metal-parts but that wasn’t bad at all, as the texture would look like corrosion.
Then some wall-paint for the stone and AP Plate Mail Metal followed by a wash of AP Strong Tone.
Much better. Ready for some suitable undead tenants.


  1. Thank you all.
    I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
    Now I'm looking at the wall that came with the set.

    1. It is possible to enhance buildings quite a lot, obviously. Rather easy, too :-)
