    You really did give us ample opportunity and plenty of nudges and pokes to check our addresses. I double-checked mine even though I knew it to be correct because that's exactly what everyone thinks before finding out it was wrong. Good luck tomorrow.
  2. I'll use it to relieve some stress on the mods.

    That just means you're in the running to be the first order shipped tomorrow.

    Good point Siri and100% correct. All waves were capped at 2000 backers but all waves may contain a non-zero number of backers from zones 1 & 2.

    2000 for each wave. 1 & 2 are 2000 each, 3+ are 1500 $100 core pledges + 500 $1 Thank you pledges (plus add-ons). Edit: I'm a wave 3 $1 + add-ons. Lots, and lots of add-ons. LOL! It's all about timing.

    Just saw WI, WI go by. That's the sort of typo that will cost someone a returned package. :(

    To make that distance they'd probably have to go high enough to make reentry a problem. Bonesium is very impact resistant but also very heat sensitive. You'd probably receive a big, shapeless blob of bonesium that survives the impact with little-to-no damage.
  8. I was thinking of styrene and I may go that route, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get some 1/16" black acrylic to match the rest of the body.

    It's already past the point where I needed a new ROOM to store my minis . Seriously, a few years ago I turned the smallest bedroom into a craft room for my wife and I. Even with all the extra dedicated space, I don't know where Bones 3 is going to go. Do I *really* need an office…?
  10. Hmm… I was imagining it as a working lid that would open and close, but I could just leave it open and fix it in place. That would be the simplest solution and Occam's razor might just apply. Yeah, I think that's what I'll do; thanks! As for the thick lid; I won't sand it down but I will find a thinner piece to make the lid; except for the foot pedals and the strings insert; the piano is all acrylic. It was the easiest way I could think of to get the right finish.
  11. I don't have my own laser cutter, but I did make them myself on someone else's laser. I was actually thinking the piano might need to be bigger over all. It's funny how things seem right on paper but when you see the actual piece it just doesn't work the way you thought it would. But that's why it's v1.0
  12. I've been working on a few furniture pieces and thought I'd post (for a change) and see what all the cool kids think of them They're kind of meant for a sort of haunted castle feel, rather than something for a dungeon but I guess they could end up anywhere. For scale, I grabbed the first mini within easy reach. First up, a dining room table and chairs. Each chair is different just because I did a bunch of different designs. The chairs are stained, the table is not (yet). Second, a wardrobe to start off a royal bedroom set, also stained. And finally, my favourite so far, a grand piano. It's not quite finished yet. The image of the strings inside didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked (need to rethink that part). The lid (right) I think is too thick and I haven't figured out a way to attach it to the piano so that it can open (other than tape); I'd love some ideas if anyone has some. The bench needs a cushion similar to the chairs. The keys on the other hand turned out perfectly . Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think.

    From the UPS Trade Direct Cross Border Page: So yeah, I'm guessing UPS is bringing them over in bulk, possibly into one of our FTZs and then will distribute them locally within Canada. I don't have the details as I won't get a notice like that; I used my USPS P.O. Box for this specifically so that I wouldn't have to deal with UPS bringing anything over the border for me.
  14. Once per year, one of my FLGSs holds an auction wherein people can bring in the games/toys/etc. with which they wish to part ways. The owner auctions off the wares according to any minimum bids set by the items' owners and cashes out the buyers through the store. Sellers receive the full purchase price for their items as store credit and the proprietor keeps the real money. It's a fun way to get rid of your old clutter and pick up someone else's. Yesterday was that auction and I came away with this little gem for $25 (Canadian):

    Secret Weapon will be running the project, under their account, which were used for the first Tablescapes project. Reaper is involved as a logistical partner and consultant, we helped set SW up with our contacts in manufacturing for PVC product, as well as we will be running the pledge manager and have "collaborator" status on their project, and can make edits and leave comments. We are helping them with a lot of the behind the scenes math, but at the end of the day, this truly is Secret Weapon's product. Cool, as long as I know where to look for the project! :) Sorry to hear that Reaper abandoned its tile project and that your own sculpts won't be used as a result. Nevertheless, these look really fantastic and I'm excited to see what else they have in store beyond the tiles in the teaser pic!
