  1. I'm kind of baffled that folks would try to glue ANY type of Bones with plastic model cement.  It's formulated to work with a specific type of polystyrene, and none of the Bones are made of that type of plastic.  To the best of my knowledge the ONLY glue recommended for use with Bones has always been Super Glue.  If you're just doing it to experiment, well okay, more power to you, but the odds of it working well are diminishingly small.

  2. Well this one is chugging along.  Just unlocked the Orc Female Boss bust (say that three times fast), and we'll probably get to the 30mm Orc Warlord today or tomorrow.  I really want the Orc Queen on beast, but since she costs almost as much as my 4 bust early deal,  I'm not sure my wallet will allow it.  Hopefully I can add on in the Pledge Manager.

    So if the Dark Elf Queen on the throne is detachable, that means I could build a little perch for her on top of my Cadirith giant spider..... Then it would be rude not to use it against my players, right? ::P:

     

    She's separate from the throne.  If you look at the pictures you can see the space between her hands and the arms of the throne and the line along her butt.  Plus they'd never be able to get it out of a mold if it was all in one piece, even with slide  mold technology there's no way to do her and the throne as a single piece.

    Dang!  A little sad that these might not get here till closer to April but I know it was out of Reaper's hands and they were trying super hard to hit that delivery date.  They got pretty close and from what I understand this will probably be the closest they have gotten to on time delivery.  I also get the feeling that they are probably more disappointed than a lot of backers.  

     

    It is not their fault that I am so impatient!  I am glad that we have more of a solid idea now of when shipping will commence. 

     

    Thanks Reaper for keeping us up to date!  We almost made it without any delays and I don't think a month delay for a KS is a big deal at all!  

     

    Edit:  I just hope the backers in the KS comments handle the news ok!

     

    Yeah, a month in Kickstarter time is the blink of an eye for delays.  ;)  I've got one that's coming up on being a year late, and another that's pushing 4+ months.

    And how many figures did those baggies hold? E. g. was the whole core set in one, or was it separated by themes similar to the individual core set add ons one could buy? 

     

    But yes, seems like I need to get a bunch of ziploc bags, not opening at least half of the Bones bags seems impossible. There will be at least 3 people in attendance for the unboxing, and all are very excited :lol: 

    Now I just need to convince my dad of lending me his labeling machine.

     

    I've never received a core set before, so I'm not sure about that, but all the other things I've received have been individually bagged.

    Another question for the people who have done this before: are the miniatures in baggies? Are these reusable? Or should I invest in a large amount of ziploc baggies? 

     

    They come in standard sealed plastic bags.  Not re-closeable.  Probably need to buy assorted zip-locks if that's how you want to sort them out.

    Hubby and I finally remembered to watch more of The Rookie, with Captain Malcom Rey- I mean, Nathan Fillion :lol: 

     

    And now, thanks to the discussion on the randomness thread about pepper spray, I can't help but roll my eyes every time they spray someone. I'm sitting here watching a perfectly enjoyable episode and they spray someone, and I'm like "lies! They would all be suffering in the tiny space! That apartment would be uninhabitable!" Y'all done went and ruined a perfectly bad Hollywood mechanic :rolleyes:

     

    Without having read the randomness thread, it sort of depends on what kind of delivery system their using for the pepper spray, and what kind it is.  I know of a couple of instances where it was used inside a cell or holding area and the only person who was really suffering was the person who was hit with it.  At least it worked that way with the stuff most of the guys in the department I worked for used.

    Be aware that the stranger the model is shape-wise, the longer it will take to release.  Goremaw from the last KS just released in the past couple of weeks.  "normal" sized/shaped minis I expect will be released in monthly batches after all the KS fulfillment is complete.

     

    Yeah, I was so happy to finally see Goremaw!  Now I just have to save up the  moolah to buy a copy...

    Yeah. It's not like I haven't tried it. I don't know what kind of glue they used, but it's strong.

    The figure is made from some kind of rubber (at least it feels like it) und the only thing I managed to do was melting away part of her shoe with the glue cleaner.

    Thank the goddess I tried it at the UNDERSIDE first.

     

    I put the figure to the side until I find a better solution to the problem without killing the miniature completely.

     

     

    If it's rubbery, the odds are that it's PVC/Vinyl since that's the other material these things are usually made from.  If they used vinyl glue to put it together, I don't know what would work as a de-bonder.  On the off chance that they used super glue, you might try freezing it.  That usually makes the superglue brittle enough to come apart.  Just out of curiosity were you using actual debonder, or acetone/nail polish remover to try and get the seam apart?

    Maybe I'll stripe her once more and redo all the messed up parts, because the figure has got a lot of seamlines and all that stuff I didn't see before. I'll have to think about that for some time.

     

    FWIW, if you can get her apart and then paint her in sub-assemblies, I think you'll have a MUCH easier time painting this.  At the very least, most folks leave the head and/or hair separate until everything is painted.  I could see leaving some of the skirt panels off as well.  Oc course it depends on what was used to assemble the figure before you got it.  If it was super glue - no problem.  5 minute epoxy or something like that?  Not really sure what would work as a debonder for that.  Best wishes for success!
