    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    5 bottles of locktite down and Im just about finished with assembly. The Frost Giant Raiders come almost fully assembled shipped. Very strange since the Fire Giant Huntsman is in a lot of pieces. The little guys are the hardest work for me to put together. I dropped one guys leg and still havent found it. I will start some painting today. I hope everyone gets their Bones soon. Im not frequent on these forums so I probably won't be back till Bones 5 begins. Take care and have fun with your Bones.

    Working through my second bottle of locktite today. I have nerve damage to my fingers so the hardest part to assemble have been the smallest pieces, normally heads, as they are hard for me to get a hold of. I have a pair of spring tweezers that you push to open while the spring forces them closed so they are great for holding onto the small pieces but rounder heads still want to pop out of their grasp. Its still not a big problem. Everyone probably knows this but dry fit before you glue so you can see how the pieces are meant to line up. Ive assembled a few dozen minis at this point and only had trouble with the wings on the female demon core set #72. I had to hold the wings in place for several minutes before the loctite gel set enough. The connector is small and the wings heavy by comparison. The apes and the snakemen are a breeze to assemble. I want to assemble everything before I contact reaper about the two tiny missing minis from my core set.

    Used up my first bottle of Loctite today. Im putting together minis at random and they fit fine. I don't have many intricate or huge minis this time but lots of the small figures. I'm giving everything a check as I assemble them to make sure there are no problems with the casting. So far the only problem with my order are 2 missing minis from the core set. The details on everything but the translucents just jump out. Sounds like that lost container arrived just in the 11th hour.

    I didnt get a chance to start assembling anything last night. Did wake up at 5am this morning briefly and put together a minitaur and a griffin. The griffin is fantastic and the loctite gel worked like a charm.

    finished my inventory of pieces. I haven't put them together and tomorrow I will debag everything and start checking for damages. My King of the Jungle came in a rtetail box so those breakable looking tusks were fine. I ended missing only two odd pieces from the core set (one minitaur I would have liked) minitaur #69 and small world hero #117. The core set is fabulous. Some fantastic sculpts, big and large pieces all that will be handy to have. The small world heroes are the only ones I have no use for. The coffins will go well with the one I have from Heroquest. Great selection and I got some extras of ape attack and snake cultists as well as the monsters. I was very pleased with the detail on the artist renditions since I didn't know whsat to expect. The core set is a big set of minis. Thje pig pulling the wagon is great. I liked the nfan favorites and darkreach expansions. Some amazing minis there. I liked the portal. Nice that it is open wide enough for minis to pass through. I can have something reaching through the portal. The chaos toads are bigger than I thought theyd be. The dwarves were great, the mamoth was smaller than i thought, it was nice that the dog was a seperate fig from the bard and I want more cat people. The darkreach was spectacular for me because im working on thed1-3 drow series for greyhawk.

    J ust pulled out the Frost Giants. They are going to be perfect for my G2 campaign. The wolf looks fine to me. The snarling expression will be for the players trying to sneak into the rift. Im pleased that everything is in ziplock bags.

    My Bones Are Here. King Cobra was at the top of the box. Much heavier than expected and huge. Sweet!

    Im just surprised reaper is able to send out replacements for anything before they are done with the shipping. They are doing half days and still clearing about as many orders per day as I remember from previous kickstarters.

    In the pledge manager it should be just below your contact info and above your list of what you paid for

    When I painted parts of the translucent bones it really helped to bring out detail. I think I also applied some wash that helped on bringing out the detail
