    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I can't use a memory foam mattress. My wife has the same problem. In fact we just got rid of one and replaced it with a pillow-top and both of us are sleeping much better. De gustibus ...

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    And it's snowing in Denver Metro now. Only sticking on vegetation and cars, but it's not just the odd flake of snow. Yay.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Reaper has said that it will be after all the packages have shipped from Australia. They have not said how long after. The container for Australia was supposed to arrive in Australia on Saturday, then it would have to clear customs, get to the reshipper's facility, and then the packages be sent out. In part, this time window is driven by the need to be able to satisfy any problems in KS project fulfillment. In part it's driven by the desire not to be selling KS product while supporters are still waiting for reward shipment. They have also said that the numbers will be "limited". No indication what that actually means.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    After thinking about this for a bit, I wonder whether Scale75 is casting in-house and sending out rewards as the figures are cast. It would make the slow rate of fulfillment understandable, especially if they have limited resin-casting staff (and mold-cutting staff, since they would need to replace molds several times during the casting process).

    "Need." I don't think that word means what you think it means. And if I'm wrong about that, you're about to experience "disappointment". Fortunately, disappointment builds character. Give me a minute and I'll let you know how many experience points you earn.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I'm at four figures plus the freebie, so I suspect I'm back in line somewhere as well. Maybe I'll get a mini-Christmas sometime soon.

    Brush cutters are a thing. They're not a cheap thing.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Then it's not a defect. It might well be a sculpt that you are unhappy with. There are sculpts in this project about which I feel the same. It's a cost of Kickstarter. And with that, I'm out of this discussion.
  11. To a district attorney, there's a difference between fraud and incompetence. To a customer, there often isn't. As a customer, I'm as worried about one as the other.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    If a miniature did not fill properly in the mold, is missing some part that others of the same stock number, has a nasty mold gate problem not present on others of the same SKU, or whatever, that's a defect and Reaper will happily replace the miniature. If the miniature was delivered in the form that Reaper intended but you are unhappy with that miniature, that is not a defect*. Reaper is very good about correcting defective products. * Note that we've discussed differences between advertised and delivered versions above in this thread at some length. There are arguments to be made on both sides and I've made some of them, but it's clear that there's a difference between those sorts of differences and defects.

    The first 90% of any project takes 90% of the effort. The last 10% takes the other 90% of the effort.

    They're delicious. But what do they taste like?

    And your husband didn't wake you up. Good husband. Kangarooing is awesome and good for the baby. When our son was in the NICU, both my wife and I tried to go down to the hospital every day and spend time with our son sleeping on our chests. I was working for Games Quarterly at the time and my schedule was kind of "whenever; make sure you hit the deadline", so I would go down late at night and Cheryl would go down right after she got off work at a more normal time. I'm convinced it helped all of us. Enjoy it while it lasts. It will quickly be replaced by something else, as will that thing. It's an adventure.

    Well, it probably won't snow today at this altitude (it's already snowing higher up in the mountains). Still, it's 35F/2C right now, and raining, so you never know.

    Probably 32, eight stands of four 15mm Sumerians. Relatively easy, since the figures didn't have much in the way of clothing or equipment.

    I'm in the process of setting up again after yesterday's CMPA paint day. When that's done, I'll check in as well.

     I think "steps" for the baby might take at least a little while longer.

    Reaper Bones 4 Six Wraiths

    I like them individually quite a bit. Your dynamic range and highlight placement are very striking. Together, they are ... rainbow-y. Note that you can upload the pics to the forum by dragging them into the lower part of a post. (See "Drag files here to attach, ...".) Makes looking at the work a bit easier and probably increases the responses.

    Forumite Classes, 2019

    It's one of the classes I put in for. We'll see whether it's accepted. I'll note that by the time I got my requests in, the available time slots were only the evening ones. In the past, the schedule has been put up some time before ticket purchases opened, so people could set up a tentative schedule (and alternates if appropriate).

    ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

    It's easier for some of us than others. There's also @Pegazus's forum bingo game, which uses buttons with the forum icon of the wearer. Look him up for a bingo card (always assuming he does it again). Would you then become "Buglip"? Or should that be "Two Buglipses enter; one Buglips leaves!"?
