The little dude's right next to me, in fact.

 

I didn't opt for tracking with mine. It was $15 extra, and I've had it before and all it will tell me is that it got mailed. Then, sometime later, that it arrived.

 

I figured I could probably get that information in any case. I suppose if it gets lost, which would be most horrible because I rather liked it, I'd see about painting a replacement. Which probably wouldn't take so long the second time around.

I noticed that once your package left Los Angelos sorting facility the tracking info stopped completely. Same thing with one I sent to Australia.

Same thing with one I sent to Australia.

Thats completely normal, in my experience.

 

As far as tracking is concerned, unless its sent via a good quality shipping company that has special deals with Australia Post, the item tends to just disappear into the ether from before it leaves the country of origin right up until it is delivered to the door.

Inarah,
I've been computer-less and have been operating off of my phone for the last month...since about new years.


So I *just* realized it never got to you. Which is sad, and even sadder that the photos were on the dead computer. :(

I can and will paint you another. It will take me time though. I'm armpit deep in winter gaming con time. I'm running 9 scenarios this weekend, and running a con 2 weeks after that, and running 7 games 2 weeks after that, and another 8 2 weeks after that. AFTER THAT...I'm done with cons till next winter, and can paint again.

Dang! That sucks losing pics on a dead PC. And not getting a figure, either, that's some run of bad luck.

 

If you get around to painting another one, that would be cool. Let me know when to expect it and I will keep an eye on the postman.

Assuming the information given to me was accurate (and not accounting for weather delays), Shogan ought to get the one I sent anywhere between today and next thursday.

 

I mailed a Lord Soth out to Sanael a couple of months back and it arrived pretty quick by the same method. So, we'll see. Customs shouldn't be a problem, I labelled it as "Toy Soldier, Gift" with a declared value under $10. Hopefully they won't decide to hold and inspect it. It's packaged to survive transport (hopefully), but probably not to survive the less-than-tender mercies of those ham-fisted ogres.

 

"Hey, supervisor Throg, looky what I founds here!"

 

"What dat? Ohhh, dat sure looky pretty! Let's us smash pretty thingy! Ha ha ha!"

 

*stomp* *stomp* *stomp*

 

*angels cry*

Yep, according to my "records" (likely similar to the goblin's...wadded up random receipts amongst stankifying socks and the like), it took exactly seven days to get from NL to PA. It is a lot colder and snowier now, though.

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
       
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it too.

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.
