Shipping

Recommended Posts

When shipping out stuff next Spring please please please please do NOT use FexEx Smartpost.

My Zombicide package has traveled back and forth past my house for some time now, and is still not in a place where it can be picked up.

Reaper usually ships UPS or USPS.

 

Although I have no idea what they use for international.

The last time I got something by FedEx, the amount of hoops I had to jump through just to pay my $18 consumer-side charge was so ridiculous, so inutterably backwards as to be from a different century, that it was almost like they were trying not to get paid.

 

I'd sooner get delivery by slow pack mule.

Huh. I have had the exact opposite experience.

 

FedEx always gets me my package straight to my door and on time. UPS seems to go out of their way to keep it away from me. It's gotten to the point where I will occasionally pay for express shipping just to avoid them.

 

 

I'll admit, for my most recent UPS delivery, the guy actually left the package on my door step without knocking (I was home all day). I was a little annoyed, because the package was mildly expensive, and I was expecting to receive it in person. "Fortunately" UPS helpfully sent me email to let me know I signed for it in person, so it was all OK. :angry:

I've moved since the last time Reaper sent something to me. Unfortunatly, the postal carrier I now have is the laziest bastarge in existance. If the box is too big to fit the rediculously tiny mail box, he stamps it 'undeliverable' and goes on his way.

 

Had more than one shipment of Blue Bottle Coffee lost because of it...

This is my experience to a "T"!

 

I can also add that I've waited at home all day for important packages from UPS, with the front door open and I have a dog that barks when anyone approaches. I track the package status online and I've had it marked as 'attempted delivery'. After calling them, I am told the UPS driver claimed he attempted delivery but nobody was home. This has actually happened more than once, believe it or not.

 

Fedex has always been on time and more than once has delivered a day or two earlier than the estimate!

 

I hate UPS.

If you have a friendly business nearby, ask if they'll let you have your package delivered there. I use a glass-blowing studio behind my house, and have never had any problems from UPS or FedEx (or USPS, for that matter). Alas, businesses get treated a bit better than consumers, it seems.

Massive hate for UPS here in Canada. The brokerage fees they charge for things coming across the border should come with a gift certificate to a nice restaraunt if you catch my drift.

 

USPS is great. I've never had an issue with them.

I've had bad experiences with all of them, but none of them were bad enough to make me stop doing business with any of them, and, really, I blame the generally poor attitude of their employees in Richmond, VA more than I do USPS, UPS or FedEx themselves.

      Had a lot of fun painting this one! :D

      I've had Ragnaros (or Raggers, as I like to think of him) for almost a year. I was stuck on what colours to use for ages. Red and brass, my first thought, are a bit too Khorne-y for my liking, and I didn't want to do him in the classic plate mail colours. So I settled for a pretty mute palette: Vallejo Neutral Grey, a blue/grey sample from Reaper, and Army Painter Dark Tone, Plate Mail Metal and Rough Iron. I did the eyes with Vallejo Red to add some colour.
       
      I thought about doing something flashy with his sword and shield, but then figured that Raggers isn't the type to bugger about with flaming swords and shields made of human skin. I also wonder how easy it would be to outrun him seeing as he's wearing about three tons of armour. The figure itself is so heavy you could put it in a sock and use it to mug people.
       
      Raggers isn't based yet; after slathering on what felt like the fourth gallon of Dark Tone to finish him off I'm taking a break.
       
      As always, comments, criticisms and cash are welcome.

      My first Reaper Forum post! Please give constructive criticism if you have any suggestions!
       
      At first I was going to make this dark priest Caucasian, but then decided to go for a “Abdul Alhazred” feel, complete with human flesh scroll and inscribed in blood.
       
      I am glad to be on the forum and will post more on my extended “sinister graveyard cult” that I am working on!

      Some of you are old enough to remember the old Dungeons and Dragons toy line from way back when. In that toy line, they featured an evil fighter named Warduke. He also made one appearance in the cartoon, and was given stats (more than once) for use in the pencil and paper RPG.
       
      I have decided to make/convert a copy of him for myself.
       
      This is who I'm talking about for those that don't know, or remember:

       
       

       
       
      He got brought back for 3.0 or 3.5 edition D&D, too:
       

       

       
      Now, that's some pretty cool artwork, and my apologies to Mr. Reynolds, but it's wrong. Warduke is LEFT handed.
      See?

       
       
      Anyway, now that we all know who I'm talking about, I chose the Bones version of Goldar : http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/goldar/latest/77047 
      to use as the base for this project.
       
      And this is what I've gotten done so far:
       

       
      Hand removed for a weapon swap, left arm armor sculpted with GS, started reshaping the left boot.

      Left home in a hurry for a family emergency. Grandfather having heart trouble so I’m hanging out with him helping out.
       
      I didn’t bring any minis or paint so I found a local game store and picked up a few. I went to hobby lobby and michaels for some brushes and paint. 
       
      The paint was extremely cheap but hey if it doesn’t work out I can do something else. Space for travel is super limited (motorcycle) so I don’t want much to carry. 
       
      I brushed on some foundation white from model color. Since I don’t have any skin tone I had to experiment making it. I am happy with the results. I’m not quite sold on the color for the armor yet.
