    I really like the blue.  You're right, the eyes do look a bit crazy, adding a bit more character.  Nicely done!  What color did you use for the bone weapon handles?  I really like how that looks.  

    Bones are Reaper Splintered Bone with Army Painter Soft Tone. Guy with the spear is Reaper Driftwood with Army Painter Soft Tone.

    I know the wolf from the frost giants was a bit off, so I boiled his leg and moved it over, held it a bit in place, then cooled it under tap water after about a minute. Seems to have fixed the issue, and he is all glued up on his base:)

    Yeah, my wolf is off too but he's close enough I'm not too worried about him. Thanks all, sounds like the boil n' cool should do it. 

  3. Hello, I was wondering if anyone else had these issues and the best way to fix them. Did a search of the forum and didn't find anything.

     

    1. Gauth's (big core set dragon) feet seem pretty uneven. When the "higher" foot is flat his lower foot is a good 3/4 inch off the ground. I figure I'll do a boil and twist of the legs but it seemed like it was off by a lot.

    2. Marsh Troll. The footprint on the base seems way off. His lower half is pretty solid so I don't know if boiling and adjusting will work. I figure he'll get a custom base but I was curious if they're all off that much. IMG_20190428_195147.thumb.jpg.139a72e2ba7b43cebbb954feec652a32.jpg

  5. From the Kickstarter comments:

    Today's slowdown was not related to large item orders. Lets just say we had some personnel challenges and at least one problem with ... I will tactfully call it "people breaking something".
    Everything looks to be up and running and we are hoping for a much better day, and return to 1,100+ tomorrow.
    Kickstarter Lesson #3427: just because the last week went more or less smooth does not mean today will.
    Either way, we are over halfway done with rewards, and are scheduling some weekend time in addition to that already planned to help us make up for today's lackluster results.
    Good night, I'll return tomorrow.
    [email protected] if it is urgent.

  6. ROW: your stuff is going US Postal, and we are anticipating 2 days of fulfillment there. I'm waiting on a phone call from the Denton postmaster to arrange them to leave us a truck rather than our usual carrier.

    Just imagining the regular mailman stopping by that day and asking, "So, got anything for me?"

  7. Since I've done it the past couple updates, in case anyone not in the kickstarter is following this thread (masochist perhaps?) here's the update:

     

    First, a quick note about Origins. We had been looking forward to seeing you there, but unfortunately we won't be there this year in a booth. Our brother Tim Peaslee will be running demos, so be sure to say hi to him when you're there. We can't do a proper booth this time around because we simply can't spare the labor right now.

    Why can't we spare the labor?

    Friday, June 7th, we received two 40ft containers full of Bones! For those of you keeping track at home, those containers were filled with over 470,000 models. We're still looking for the last container to be delivered next week, but we have enough to start shipping now.

    What's next?

    We've unloaded the containers (we have the bruises to prove it). We're getting those models organized into our system and firing up our fulfillment li ne this week.

    We know we're behind our estimated ship date of March, so we've added a second shift for fulfillment so we can process the packages very nearly 'round the clock. We're doing everything we can to blast through these pledges so you can receive your Bones as quickly as we can manage it.

    Thanks for your continued patience and support.

     

    I should note that there's some nice pictures of lots of brown boxes, ala Indiana Jone's Hanger 51. Here's the link to the update: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-an-evolution-of-gaming-min/posts/506028

  8. So, roughly 3-4 more weeks before shipping resumes if it's condition number one, and also assuming condition 2 only affects the canadian pledges already packed up and waiting to go. And assuming customs don't hold it up again or it runs afoul of pirates. I can live with having another month to work on the Room of Regret before they get here. I guess they want to wait and get everyone's out roughly together, as opposed to shipping what they can now then stopping and waiting for the last lot(s) to arrive.

     

     

    Well, customs is the big X factor. It's my impression that the container that just arrived (The so-called Container B) spent a long time in customs. Maybe Container C will get through customs much faster and be hot on the heels of Container B. So maybe faster than 3-4 weeks, maybe not. Either way, thanks for the update, Heisler.

  9. Update #92

    We are currently waiting on only 4 more shipments (Containers) from China, the last of which should be leaving China about one week from today!

    It normally takes 3-6 weeks from ship date to arrive at our dock, with 5 weeks being the Average.

    As things arrive over the next few weeks we will be able to resume shipping orders, but we are thinking that the bulk of your orders will be waiting for that last shipment to arrive.

    We appreciate your patience and support throughout this process!

    Again, in case anyone somehow missed the email and just checks here for updates.

     

    Personally, I'm going to try to forget about Bones for a while and just be pleasantly surprised when I get the shipping email.
