14 different sophies or all the bones 3 one? If all the bones 3 one, are you bulding a demon school or something?

I meant KS3 Sophies. I ordered 13 (Core plus 12) and ended up with an extra in the box. I have my reasons. (They involve a future Eberron Campaign)

 

I haven't counted my other Sophies but there are probably at least over 14 different ones that I own.

Have I mentioned how happy you stealing my mini so that you can paint it yourself makes me? :wub:

 

It is sooo nice having a wife that I don't have to explain my hobbies to!

 

See you in a few.

I just ordered two of the things. As well as doubles of Mr. and Mrs. Bones.

Safer.

 

That's why Michelle and I usually get two of the big and/or unique pieces. It's just easier that way.

Well, that and we're running a sanctuary for endangered monsters so having mated pairs is a good thing. :B):

Great, now I am picturing 14 Sophies, all in fukus....

 

Looks like I only have one damaged model (the Houngan), and one missing part (the cover for the hinge on the crypt).

 

Not sure yet if I am going to get replacements or if I will just use Green Stuff to fix the problems - both are pretty minor - though fixing the door with Green Stuff will probably mean having it permanently open or closed.

Can anyone provide a rough estimate of how long we have to report any missing pieces/parts?

 

I went through the box already and confirmed I have all the groups/sets and extras I've ordered but wondering how soon I need to inventory the sets or make sure none of my assembly pieces are missing anything.

 

To be honest, there are still larger pieces from Bones II that I haven't gotten around to assembling, but I might as well set some sort of goal for myself this time around.

Just finished inventorying everything and I`m really impressed with the overall quality of the miniatures. Love the "not so bendy" material Reaper used for Bones III and also the cemetery pieces made of hard plastic.

 

That being said, my female frost giant is missing the arm with the staff, which is not really a problem as I don`t intend to paint her anytime soon.

 

But I actually have an issue with 3 cemetery fences (2 large and 1 small) that have bendy grids. Will the boiling and ice water strategy work on this material? Can this procedure be harmful in any way? I can see it is a bit white on the damaged part, it doesn`t stay on the correct position when I try to fix it with a gentle push and I`m hesitant to force and eventually break it.

Just to see if anyone's seeing anything I'm not - I've got an issue with the paint not being sent to me, and they've just reiterated that I need to include the part number for the missing "piece".  As best as I can tell, the paint doesn't have a part number - does anyone see a part number I don't?

(It's half of paint set A that was missing, if it matters.)

Second (wave 5) shipment delivered today, third (wave 7) through Customs without a hitch - the 3rd was the one I was sweating a little over, it was $230 USD as opposed to the $175 USD of the first two.  I've heard from another NZ backer who had a substantial single order sent via another reshipper - costs were roughly equivalent although their order was a higher dollar value than mine, but regardless it appears that both of us got our shipments well in advance of the Pacific Rim Zone as a whole.

 

At this stage, if anyone from this part of the world is looking for advice on future Reaper Kickstarters in terms of shipping,

 

  • For New Zealand the limit at which they charge duty on a shipment appears to still be about $230 USD.  This changes depending on the exchange rate & I've heard rumors it might change drastically in future, but right now you'll save yourself 15% GST (sales tax to you yanks) and roughly $100 in processing fees if you split your order into >$230 USD chunks
  • I strongly encourage you to take as much control as you can of the shipping process, and get your Bones sent to a US-based reshipper:  I use the NZPost YouShop service, others have used Mainfreight.  The cost is competitive with the Reaper offerings to date, and you'll have much more control over what's  happening.  Against that it is a bit more work to set up.

I'd use the actual paint colour stock number. It's in the pic above the colour of each bottle.

09301, 09302...etc.

I had one bottle red liner missing, and I couldn't find a part number either - no 3 digit number on the KS image and no paint SKUs in the leaflet in the box. I included the paint number from the image in my email, though. I just mailed last night so it'll probably be a while before I hear from them.

 

(edit) vvv Great, that's the number I included in my mail. vvv

I have two boxes for paint set A. One is labelled as "09596 x 6" and the other as "09597 x 6". Both have those numbers (09596/09597) on the bar codes for the boxes as well. I don't know if that helps you or not but thought I'd offer the info since I have both boxes.

Is there any update on the location of the ships? The lack of news is mildly stressful.

My box was autographed, Megan's wasn't. ::P: (Or so I have been told - I have not yet seen the box, which is living with its deep, dark secrets at her mum's house.)

Because I do not yet recognize her first+last name on sight like  do yours.

 

And basically anybody else I autographed.

 

I had about 30 seconds per box (if that) and if i had to think or it didn't spring to mind immediately, i didn't bother breaking out my sharpie.

      About this project
        Along the Great Northern Trade Route that leads to the town of Midlam, merchants come from distant lands to buy and sell their wares.  
      One such trader is the Great Sultan, who has brought along his entourage of advisers, entertainers and of course, his guards.  Also, arriving close behind the Sultan are rumours of strange and exotic wizards, and something more sinister.  
      Could it be, that he hopes to escape the curse of the Undead Pharaoh, who's tomb he ordered looted for it's fantastic treasures?
      Whatever the truth of the matter, the High Wizard of Midlam has chosen to investigate these rumours...
      Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of six 28mm scale mages & priests from the distant desert lands, for all of your Fantasy Egyptian, Pulp and Arabian Nights games.
      The Undead Pharaoh  
      The High Priest  
      The Priest  
      The Priestess  
      The Sorceress  
      The Princess This is our fourth Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our existing range of 'Arabian Nights' miniatures.
      We have also included an option to purchase 'An audience with the Great Sultan' alongside the six mages and priests.  The set includes twelve miniatures: The Sultan on rug, two guards, female guard with spear, assassin, servant with fan, panther, caravan guard, adviser, snake charmer, rug merchant and sword swallower.
      An Audience with the Great Sultan Getting this project funded will not only help us get these figures made, but will also help us plan and create future ranges and expansions. 
      Our three previous Kickstarters, Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings and Cultists of the Kraken Lord all successfully funded and delivered on schedule.
      We are also happy to receive suggestions on what to make next!
      PLEASE NOTE: The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead.   We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models.
      They are not toys, and are not suitable for children. 
      We regrettably do not have the ability to produce resin miniatures. 
      All miniatures are supplied unpainted.
      All images and miniatures are ©2017 Midlam Miniatures.

      TheGreenAlliance – a full blown sci-fi orcs and goblins army geared up with WW2 US Army inspired equipment.
       
      Tabletop miniatures spiced up with high level of craftsmanship and humor, The Green Alliance Army is ready to storm a battlefield near you
       

       

       

       

       
      Here's a list of the confirmed sets with their "bullets" cost (read on for an info on all the models we have planned and may get unlocked during the campaign):
       

      confirmed units
       
      Mind the shipping costs - it depends on the number of "bullets" you spend ( the more bullets spent = the bigger teh package). To make things simple we have made 3 tiers:
       

      shipping cost
       
      What material the models are made of? They are a mixture of highest quality resin and white metal. This way we get the best of 2 worlds - finest looking miniatures and something that would withstand even harsh treatment on the tabletop. Most of the infantry units have metal bodies with resin heads and bits, while vehicles are primarily resin.
       
       
       
      A lot of sweet goblins and orks for painting/your favourite SF wargame or even real WWII games. I've bought from MaxMini (a well established company even if they are new to KS) before and have always had great minis and great service
