    Free Painting Day in Knoxville 9/28

    If anyone has a chance to make this event, you need to do it. Wren is an awesome painter and teacher. If I could make it, I'd definitely drive out. (But I can't because of my two sons.)

    Done with Big Metal Miniatures?

    Well, they have not released any new metal since February. However, I do see new metal appearing in the preview gallery for October and November release, so I'm hopeful.

    Done with Big Metal Miniatures?

    P65 got cancelled, so I think there's only one kind of metal left. The idea of P65 was to offer models at a lower price point but Bones have managed that quite nicely. I mostly want them to start shipping metal again because of my Crown Jewel. :)

    Pointer? I did a quick search and couldn't find it.

    New Bones Availability

    The Kickstarter strike lingers on. Some hoped that the owners and miniatures could have come to the table before now, but we're still waiting. Insiders explain there's still a lot of time left in the painting season. At the end of the day, we may just have to wait, and see what tomorrow brings. Your correspondent, signing off.
  6. I just did this today, and I used Jasper_the_2nd's AMAZING spreadsheet, and wrote the SKU on each baggy, and checked it off of my personal mini inventory (to which I'd copied all this stuff ahead of time). I'm in the process of sorting the baggies so that I can pull them quickly as I need to paint them.
  7. I am imagining my mail carrier, who saw that we had about 40 envelopes for a baby announcement said "Wow, you have a lot of mail to pick up today!", and how he'd react to 3100 Bones boxes. We'd probably have to put out padding on the ground before he showed up, and maybe have a defibrillator handy.
  8. I received my shipment, and I'm short one Vampire. Crown Jewel special case bit me, I think, because the Vampire was implicit in the order not line-itemed. :( Email sent to reaper….
  9. You're in Alaska?

    Bones Shipment Tracking thread

    St. Louis, MO You're getting: Orcapocalypse x1 Figure Case x1 There Be Dragons x1 Deathsleet x1 Undead Giant x1 Nethyrmaul x1 Kaladrax Reborn x1 Ebonwrath x1 Your shipment was postmarked on 06-25-2013 and is being shipped UPS Ground. Hopefully, this included the implicit vampire in the Crown Jewel... We shall see!
  11. Oh, something off to St. Charles, MO! SOOOO CLOSE! Now Normandy, MO! That's even closer!
  12. It should not. FPO/APO are only shipped via USPS. UPS won't accept things to those addresses.

    System Check Email

    I got my system check email at 8:47 CDT. It's being sent via Amazon Simple Email Service. That's an amazon service which can send bulk emails. It farms the emails across Amazon's cloud and offers absolutely no guarantees on order of delivery. It just spawns a gajillion computers and routes the emails by black magic. Because it works to ensure ISPs don't view the emails as spam, there's various ISP-specific throttling done. In other words, don't take the order you got the system check email to mean anything about your shipment.

    No Bones yet.

    I have to say it is fun to look back on that thread knowing how things turned out!

    No Bones yet.

    I've got all the LTPKs and a bunch of metal in the hopper, and crazy amounts of paints. But I have to say, I was sad when the update came out. I know Kickstarters have delays. I know transit from China is crazy. I understand Customs is unpredictable. But still, I hoped I would get my bones soon and when the update came out I was disappointed. I'm not mad at Reaper, I'm not calling this some conspiracy, but I am sad. I'll live with it, since I'm still getting a great set when it finally arrives, but for the moment I'm stuck recalibrating my expectations and being sad it'll be longer. (And I'm a minis-for-the-year and haven't gotten anything in a while. Yes, Reaper is making everything good when they start shipping metal again, I have no doubt about that. But the primitive reward center of my brain is screaming "Where are my new shinys!") FWIW, I'm probably already on stage 4 of grief and will be moving on shortly, but I'll wallow in this stage tonight.
