    77081 Burning Sphere

    It looks really good. I'm curious what's going on in the base and how you got the battery for the LED in there. I'd experimented trying to do something like this, but I wasn't able to get something that worked adequately.

    I wish I could offer some good advise on how to contact HF. I think one of the latest updates on KS has directions on who to email and a particular subject line.
  3. While at Michael's today, I saw that they have all their airbrushes and assorted paraphernalia, including airbrush paint, on clearance. This makes me a little sad in that I'll now need to order airbrush stuff online and wait couple of days versus walking across the street and returning home with the bit I needed. Prices are comparable to what you'd find online; maybe a little less.

    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    I received the "we're shipping this now" email after I received the minis too. it's nice confirmation, but confusing. I don't recall a tracking link either.

    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    I received my first shipment of minis. they seem to be in good condition from a cursory look. i'm not following the whole ship and they're done thing so i'm a little confused on what to expect when. but honestly, I don't have cycles to worry about it. this is different from the hasslefree ks - I REALLY wanted those minis. a bit less so with these. - elf operative - space goblins - half-orc soldier - dwarf soldier - half-elf operative - seelah - human thief - candy

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    My FLGS got a restock. Maybe 20 beholders among them.

    Origins 2018

    I should have signed up for painting classes... Sweet reaper deal in the coupon book. 6 paints with a ma'al drakar deluxe boxed set purchase. ...and I forgot my collection of quarters for hilde. Assuming she's here this year.

    I think I'm mentally there already. It's going to be a rough day at work. :)

    I combined with a web order FWIW.

    no apology. I wasn't going to push the issue. I just wanted my minis.
  11. I've used them. The work out. They paint up well. The resin is easy to work with, but take precautions so the resin bits aren't inhaled, swallowed or otherwise taken internally -- it's not particularly good for you. A drawback is if you start using them, you start thinking all your minis need cool resin bases. The only challenge is making sure your pinning holes line up well. if you cheat and just trim back the tab on a mini to serve as some ersatz pins, try to get it completely under the feet so no part of the hole will show. otherwise, it might be visible and detract from the mini.

    After a visit to the local post office, I've received all and more from hasslefree. All pledge items, my Web order, some candy and a freebie mini to boot.

    Yep, nothing is going to be easy. USPS claims they tried to deliver, but the mailbox was blocked. Mailbox wasn't blocked. I was home at the time the claim to have tried to deliver. I am very unhappy with the USPS now.

    It's amusingly poetic that my shipment has driven past me twice and has yet to be delivered by USPS. So far: London (RP) > Chicago (USPS) > Detroit > Cleveland > Akron > Cleveland Maybe the next sorter will remember Strongsville is served by the Cleveland distro center. :)

    whoo! got a tracking number (shipped 1/15). 9am 5/16 was on a plane to O'Hare. Currently getting sorted by USPS. OB: Tracking number is in backerkit, number view confirmation under the heading "Special Notes"

    I saw that post. I'm hopeful he completes shipping Wednesday. I'll look for my tracking Friday and Monday. After that, I'll probably politely ramp up the "where's my stuff" lines of inquiry.

    Since I got notice that my minis were shipped on 1/7, I've been a concerned. Now, subsequent updates have said that the 1/7 shipping date is bogus. But when/if things have shipped is still up in the air. The communications has been irregular and generalized. It's been this way for months. I understand the challenges that he's facing and there's really no good way out of the mess he's in. He can stop shipping to do some communications or he can stop communications and continue shipping or he can stop both and try to hire on more help. I think he's made the best choice in continuing to ship. This understanding does not make everything ok or me happy about it though.

    I think I made my save on this one.

    Arty posted an update yesterday. tl;dr is he's working on it as quickly as he can, is short staffed, and won't be answering messages until they're out the door.

    I'll be fair. It's good to see an update. Truth though, I didn't come right from KS to here. He posted shortly after I did. Hasslefree Miniatures Creator about 14 hours ago Post show update this weekend. I was dead after the show but pledges (and backlogged hf orders) have gone out every day since wednesday and more tomorrow then I'll do an update probably Sunday along with the HF newsletter. Michael McLaughlin about 15 hours ago Still waiting on pledge and order backerkit said shipped 1/7. I hope we see a post-show update about when we can expect something. Or really even just a time frame would be nice.

    I swung by the KS today to see if there's any updates after last weekend's show. No joy. Still waiting on goodies.

    I'm still waiting too. From reading the KS comments, we're not alone. My problem now is I'm angry at the situation. And I'm going to be angry at the minis when (if?) they show up. It'll be a while before I could bring myself to paint them.

    Comment on KS. He's swamped and hopes to get through his message queues in the next couple of days.
