  1. The cleaning method you use really depends on the paint that you were using. If it's acrylic paint, then a simple green soak will do a majority of the grunt work. It's much less harsh to elastomers, like the O-Rings, and so less likely to harm them. If you can disassemble it first, then soak for an hour at a time and just work off the crusties. If you can't disassemble it, you can try soaking it first and then disassemble after it's soaked and the paint has softened. Isopropyl Alcohol also works for this, but is harsher and will damage the O-Rings the longer it's soaked. If, however, you'
  2. Looks great, Rowan. And you did a great homage for Silver. She was an awesome cat. Nick
  3. I plan to use a low temp hot glue with a clear glue stick by drizzling the glue on and avoiding contact with the tip, it will be safe enough for the plastic, since the melt point of hot glue is much lower than that of the plastic. Plus while it's still hot, it can be spread around a bit with a tool to make it look oozy and blend the seam in better.
  4. Shipping Update: Got home today after helping my mom deal with insurance and police after she was involved in a collision, and wasn't even thinking about this until I got home and found a massive box sitting in front of my computer desk. Wifey was ready to rip a strip off me, but saw the original invoice date of December 2013, and realised this was something I told her about over a year ago and NO I did not spend all this money now that I'm unemployed...and she also remembered me telling her about this Kickstarter and that I was backing...as I always tell her when I'm backing a KS. So
  5. I got a security warning. Looks like a bad link... Yep. Should be https://ups-mi.net/packageid/ And incidentally, the tracking number does not work on that tracker, but works on UPS.com. No wonder they don't know what's going on...
  6. Update: I just got off the phone from UPS MI...after being transferred 8 times back and forth to different UPS divisions (not just departments but entire business subdivisions with different call centers), who all passed the buck back and forth to each other. Finally I was able to talk to somebody who told me that the package is in the USPS system now, and that is their tracking number, but when I use the tracking number on the USPS system, it's invalid. It's also invalid in the Canada Post tracking system. They suggested I then contact Reaper to have them call UPS to figure it out... to w
  7. Calgary here. Ditto. My message is "Package received for Processing by UPS Mail Innovations" -- Bensenville, IL, Feb 19th It's been there for six days now with no status updates. I'm presuming that they're waiting for USPS to pick it up so that they can hand it off to Canada Post. My hope is that UPSMI only updates their status once per week, because the only prior update was on the 12th. That would mean they're due for a status update on the 26th. If I don't hear from UPS by tomorrow I'm going to call. Having said that, I ordered a package from Amazon on the 20th and it's schedu
  8. If that was meant to be an interlocking tab/slot arrangement, it would require a more complicated mould with a sliding mechanism to allow the undercut of the slot in the wall of the lower section. This would increase the expense of the mould and was possibly dropped, but not corrected in the other mould. If it was retained, then the more likely and simple explanation is that the mechanism is either disabled on purpose because it wasn't working properly, or was never set up properly, or failed during the manufacturing process due to accumulated material inside the slide causing it to ja
  9. Still waiting for my Wave 2 shipment to arrive to Toronto. Getting frustrated that the UPS update has shown received at Canada Post since Feb 19th, with no movement since, or valid tracking number that can be used with Canada Post.
  10. Ditto, but for wave 2 to Canada. And I read through the last few days to see if there's something there about UPS vs USPS/Canada Post but am only confused. Is it being transferred from UPS to USPS for Canada, or not? If not, I will want to self declare this so I don't pay the UPS extortion fee... which requires a complete packing slip and declared value, so I need that email even more.
  11. Ding. Just got my shipping notification. Tracking is now live.
  12. Yeah, about contaminating the pot. Anyone else notice white spots that wont scrub off easily on their pot after boiling bones? This is why I just boil water in a kettle and then pour it into a container dedicated only for bending plastic or resin models.
  13. That's an inspiring amount of dungeon tiles. Wish I could have gotten in on that one, but I was in the middle of a trip, followed by a layoff... so had to miss out on it.
  14. You are welcome. It just occurred to me the other day when I was actively searching for types of miniatures and kept getting bogged down with bones miniatures. I figured the standard internet search protocols probably apply, and it worked.
  15. You can add this to your search tag -bones and it removes all bones miniatures. I do it all the time.
