  1. I'm kinda confused about what was rude about anything @Dontmindme said. Everybody's making assumptions and speculating based on their own experiences, no need for anyone to get their feathers ruffled over statements that can't be proved nor disproved. The only thing we know for certain is that some number of backers who made some number of orders will be waiting for the rest of their items to arrive in the final container and if people want to make wild speculations over that, well, as long as they're clearly not stating it as known fact, eh, have fun with your guesses I suppose.
  2. I don't think I ever expected to mention gris-gris on the forum.
  3. Using the accelerant for me always results in a glob of dried glue on either piece but still leaves them as separate pieces. Yep, I scrub them with water and dish soap on an old toothbrush. I think this is most likely the culprit; I don't appreciate whoever it was that cursed me and I hope they know what kind of bad gris-gris this is. I should visit Marie Laveau, it would only take me about 20 minutes to pop over and have a word with her. Thanks, Doug, this is actually the most promising advice I've ever gotten for solving my super glue woes! Yes, trust me, Buglips has given me every suggestion possible and I have tried every suggestion possible. Super glue just hates me. *shrug*
  4. The way I assemble things is I start out with liquid super glue. This generally results in me gluing my fingers to the figure, but mysteriously the two parts of the figure remain totally free of each other. I then say a few inappropriate words. I try again, same result, and so I ensure that the cap is fully secured onto the tube and then I violently throw the tube across the desk. I say more inappropriate words. Then I try the gel super glue. I hold the pieces together for a solid five minutes. I release....and the two parts of the figure tumble to the desk as though I attempted to glue them together with nothing more than hopes and dreams. I say more inappropriate words. Repeat the whole process a few more times, going back to the liquid super glue, then back to the gel super glue, utter a lot more inappropriate words, maybe cry a little and threaten to throw the figure in the garbage. Somehow, most likely because all of my inappropriate words have come together as a magic spell that binds things rather than the glue working properly, I manage to get the figure assembled. I proceed to paint it. Toward the end of painting, the two parts come apart again. I pretend not to notice so that I can put the figure away in a display case instead of the dumpster. This is not a funny story, this is literally what happens every time I try to assemble something. Just ask @buglips*the*goblin

    2019 ReaperCon Hotel Information

    I really wish y'all wouldn't inform people what they are or are not allowed to be upset about. It's fine if it's not an issue for you, and you're more than welcome to state your opinion of not being upset about it, but it's honestly unreasonable to assert your feelings on the matter onto other people. Reaper advertised free items both here and on facebook, if they have decided to back out of something that they have already advertised, then they should be expected to answer for that. They don't need anyone to answer or apologize on their behalf. If people are being nasty, that's a different thing, but again, Reaper is responsible for their own customer service and people who are upset about possibly having been misled, even if you think it's a small thing, it's Reaper's responsibility to handle it. Being told or having it implied by a fellow customer that you are not allowed to be upset about something simply because they're not upset about it is never going to make anyone less upset. So, @Reaper Ron or @ReaperAHawk can you please confirm that the items that were advertised both here and on the Reapercon facebook page as being included with booking at the convention venue will no longer be included for the customers who have already filled the available room blocks? If it is the case that those items will no longer be included, then please confirm what WILL be included so that people know what to expect and are not left to speculate what may or may not be true.

    Brush Questions

    I know a lot of people promote using as big of a brush as you're comfortable with, but generally that statement is solely in promotion of using bigger brushes; if the largest brush you're comfortable with just so happens to be a small brush, that's ok too. The key is to try different things to learn what works best for you, rather than just switching to something that works for other people because they say it's better. There is no one size fits all brush and just like you use a different brush for a different technique like drybrushing, there's nothing wrong with using a smaller or larger brush for other techniques or areas on a figure. After being told for a long time that I needed to paint with larger brushes, which I found clunky and messy, I finally stopped listening and now I use a Ro&Co 3/0 for nearly everything, including the 1/12 scale bust I recently painted. It's what I'm comfortable with and it's what works for me. I think there's a tendency in the hobby community to diagnose non-existent problems and treat them with other people's personal preferences. If you're having trouble with paint drying on your brush, then you may need a larger brush. You also may need a different paint or to thin your paints differently or a different additive or a different palette or a different method. As a rule, these things should be suggestions, not answers. I also think it's important to note that skill is in the hand and mind, not in the brush. Good and appropriate tools will help you to develop skill more easily, and certainly bad tools can be a hindrance, but good tools do not contain any magic that will replace building skill.

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    I would assume, but couldn't confirm without doing so, that the way to add a new saved address is by placing an order. If you put something in your cart and then go to checkout, you will see either the option to select your saved address or to enter in a new one. I assume once the order processes, that would add the new address into your saved addresses.
  8. I let @Chris Palmer know already, but just so everyone in my group is aware, I'm going to try to get the box out in the next couple of days, but it is very likely that I will not be able to send it out until the weekend.

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    I appreciate it, kit. My irritation was nothing against you, but this has become Reaper's MO to make changes that directly affect customers without any prior notification that it's happening and I'm genuinely just really tired of the poor communication. This would have been much smoother on everyone's part, especially for you, if an announcement would have been made on the front page/news section/all of Reaper's social media a few days prior to say that the changeover was happening soon (even if a specific date could not be given for whatever reason) and give customers at least very general expectations and instructions on what to do if something went awry. Instead, as usual, it was just done and an information thread had to be started by a customer. Things go wrong sometimes and that's perfectly understandable, but this is just another instance in a long and continually growing list where Reaper should have communicated beforehand and didn't and that is very frustrating.

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    My account appears to just be gone - along with my $150 account credit. Zero warning before doing something like this? ZERO? Are you serious? I don't even care what the new site looks like, I care that you nuked my account without any warning on a holiday. I don't have time to deal with this right now. Reaper's lack of communication gets worse and worse and worse.
  11. Yeah that was me, got my email/tracking. Wave 1, locked in on 9/11.
  12. I just received the email.
  13. I have not yet received an email, but pledge manager is giving me a tracking number. Wave 1, locked in 9/11/17 mid-day.
  14. I don't think you should do that. It looks like all this time it was your poking that was delaying things.
  15. I'm going to put this on my resume.
