I'm getting a bit excited about it myself. Haven't done much painting since the holidays hit and keep thinking I need to get a bunch more painted before the next avalanche hits. I've done fairly well with painting almost as many minis as I bought the last few years but each Bones KS throws that balance way out of whack.

I'm really trying not to get my hopes up too much just in case of last minute delays but its hard not to get a little excited.  Glad I'm in Wave 1 and confirmed my order early so hoping I'm towards the front of the line.

 

I'm really trying to be patient but as it gets closer it gets harder!

Same- I need to clear some space on my book shelves for the incoming box- this is my first bones KS, I went fairly heavy on the extras so not sure exactly how much space to expect to need but certainly more than I have now is a safe bet!!

**looks at apartment storage**

**looks at current minis stash**

 

I'm going need to do some reorganizing, or end up with minis under the bed. Otherwise minis will be taking over the guest-cave/storage room/harry potter closet. 

 

I'm in wave 1, but shipping will probably be such that there is a delay at the border. I do hope that post goes smoothly, or I can arrange to work from home for a while when I see the tracking go to Canadian Customs. Otherwise I end up with a huge box at the 7-11 up the street. 

 

How many pounds is this thing going to be? For uhh... a lot of it. Quite serious question, for sake of me carrying it. Do I need a little red wagon? A Big Burly Manslave... I mean.... Sir Cyr for carrying it?

My box from the last one is about 11x20x16".  I'd recommend the little red wagon, Sir Cyr might not want to carry it more than a block or two.

I am going to need to procure a little red wagon then. Or see if I can borrow the moving dolly from the apartment manager.

Im willing to bet you'll be surprised at the size of the box. Their packers are really good at Tetris. I was expecting a much larger box last time, and was underwhelmed by the size when it got to me. 

 

Though, I did order more this time... maybe I'll get the refrigerator sized box that featured in my dreams during last fulfillment :lol:

Storage will not be a problem for me.

I can see it now.

 

Girlfriend opens fridge, sees Bones Dinosaurs staring at her.

 

***Honey where are the groceries?***

 

Me: Whistling...

 

Girlfriend opens wardrobe, Argent, two Barges and a Mammoth stand proudly on the shelves.

 

*** Honey where are my clothes?***

 

Me: Coughs and pretend not to have heard anything.

 

Grilfriend opens Kitchen Drawer, it is filled with shroom people, Drow and Gnomes, a Zombie Shark in the centre.

 

*** HOOONNNEEEYYYY!!!!****

 

Me: Runs..

… last Bones KS, we got a Mal'Drakar box. Which ordinarily would have held a pair of Mal'drakars, in their retail boxes.

Mine had one Mal, in retail box (I squee'd), and .. everything else, tetris'd in there somehow. Including pretty much every dragon, and a couple of large whatsits and a lot of bags of little monsters, some demons and a whole cohort of mouselings.

 

I'm pretty well convinced there's a secret test they make all the box-packers take; something about ten pounds of miniatures in a five pound box...

It's probably a certain score in Tetris. 

I have always admired the skill of the box packers for Reaper. I pride myself on my own abilities to pack compactly, but I'm not sure I could do their job.    Amazon packers could learn a lot from Reaper's.

I agree! My most recent order when it arrived I almost didn't open it right away because I didn't realise it was from Reaper - I was expecting a bigger box! Then I realised it was from Reaper and opened it- only to realise I couldn't get them all back in there to take them home (I have most of my mail delivered to work where there's always someone to sign for packages)

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.

       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

      Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?
