  1. it says my package is now in louisville, kentucky- IIRC, thats UPS Worldport (awesome documentary about that facility BTW). Sanjay
  2. @lexomatic hey! so for me, i got an email. pasting it here: UPS Update: Import Charges are Due <--- that was the email subject/topic line This is what the email had (image attached) and i clicked Pay Now. you should be able to select from credit card types, etc. and just enter like normal. You cant adjust anything. so its like, these are the costs -- period. i used credit card. now if i click on that pay now link again, it says its already paid and shows the details (the chart that shows the fees being charged). is that
  3. i paid the UPS fee online. $115 cdn. luckily will be split as 1/3 of the contents are not for me so its not as bad. we just split cost based on the price ratio between my stuff and the other guys... it says it will arrive today but not sure how cause tracking says its in texas hehehe :D im expect it in the next few days sanjay
  4. too much stuff... so slipped your mind? :) sanjay
  5. hmmm. mega fires or... New Jersey..... must say... not sure which i'd choose sanjay
  6. friend had one of those rental boxes in niagara on the usa side where we'd send packages to and then he'd drive over every 2 months to bring them all here but due to covid he stopped paying for it, so i had to switch package to canada :D Sanjay
  7. im confused. this is what my Pledge manager said: Subtotal:618.00 Shipping:35.67 (for buffalo, NY) but i have since changed my address for shipping to Markham (near Toronto, Canada). Pledge Applied:-650.00 Total:$3.66 <-- left over Paid11-12-2019 so that 35.67 goes to cover UPS costs? Also that canadian example screenshot in the other thread doesnt seem to add up (the examples). If im reading it right for my stuff above: UPS extra charge: $15 due to (price being between 150.01-750.00) Duty (13% Ontario):
  8. i always fully assemble first. fill gaps, resculpt any areas that are needed, remove mold lines, etc. that said, i also create custom paint stands/holders as needed. so i find a way to support the model, turn it upside down, etc with minimal contact. i find its easier to manage cause, even if you attach wings after and fill gaps, what if you need to have complex freehand or blending over that gap? that can be annoying to match it up, etc. i would rather spend more time in prep to find a way to manage the model, than to have to deal with it in separate parts. but
  9. WHERE IS THIS TURNAROUND?!?!?!? Sanjay [update - found it - Admins, can you delete this post as there's no value? ]
  10. does that mean if we are in north america and didnt order any ships, they could be packing our boxes as we speak? :) Sanjay
  11. i think ppl are missing the biggest thing. in the update, discussing shipping/EU etc a few days ago, Ed said they will try and enhance their EU process/communication in the next kickstarter!!!! !!!!! !!!! so Bones 6 will come? :) Sanjay
  12. sorry for everyone that, it appears if im reading it right, costs are going to up and potentially drastically for some countries. im still hoping for a bones 6 after this, so hopefully they sort out communications, maybe arrange for better shipping discounts, etc... regards Sanjay
  13. for me i got 4 words for ya: Eye of the Deep :P that set could have cost double and i'd still get it for the Eye of the Deep (aka Fathom Tyrant) Sanjay
  14. if you move figures often like for gaming, etc getting a good army transport large carrier or something similar is worth it. sanjay
  15. you need to send her the GW Aracnarok or Mierce Gol Gul!!! Sanjay
  16. i took some pics for scale vs some reaper, forgeworld, gf9, gw and more... plan to repaint Arveiaturace . will strip it first, may chop lower jaw and redo all its teeth. eye socket also needs some more detail around it so bit of resculpting i think. sanjay
  17. for warhammer, the army cases made it a lot easier. i have the Charon battlepack (they shutdown years ago, but its a travel safe 3 section long/wide case). :D considering ive seen people carrrying multiple forgeworld titans to games, ppl will figure it out. :) it could be worse. sanjay
  18. they use it via an airbrush . the alien and batman models they show on their site look.... interesting i guess. ...so its not as thick and its darker than even black 3.0 . but yes, it cant take punishment. i'll get some and use it for eye sockets in liches (but first have to contact them to find out what happens if i put another colour drop in the center of it. would it be like a pinpoiint of light like a star OR would it be drowned out somehow). as long as regular paint can put a pintpoint on top of it, i can make use of it. it could also be useful for some space backgrounds but due to th
  19. ya im tempted to get some when travel is normal again. friends wife is from japan and her family comes here to visit. shipping to canada is like $35 but the 100ml bottle is $30. was thinking can use it for lime demon eyes and put just a pin point of bright colour in the center, etc. BUT it says if u varnish it, it gets rid of some of the effect. as well, its very weak. rubbing your finger on it will break its surface so not good for heavy use, etc. sanjay
  20. if someone wants to go crazy with the shadow dragon, there's this: https://www.ko-pro.black/product/musou-black-paint/ :) Sanjay
  21. green stuff doesnt need to be in equal amounts. different ratios give different drying times/hardness but being off even 15-25% will still harden, but will take longer or faster depending which colour it was that was in excess. sanjay
  22. apoxie sculpt is cheaper and in larger containers. has some different properties but same idea. i get it from sculpture supply canada sanjay
  23. green stuff is good in that if teh ratio is off it still hardens... just at different speeds and hardness levels. you can get online for much cheaper than that. i get 3 ft for 10 euros and then shipping... sanjay
  24. oh you cant imagine the hate i have for integrated bases on anything. bones, nolzurs, old metal minis. i end up using metal clippers and just tearing them apart. model damage be dammed. easier for me just to resculpt minor damage if needed then the hassle of using integrated bases... sanjay
