I'm unsure how they are calculating the VAT as everyone that has posted here seems to have a different number - I've seen between £23 and £28.50. Who know?

 

Customs move in some mysterious ways know only to the eldritch gods, we will understand the explanation only "when the stars are right" :)

Or if you become a customs agent, and then you cannot talk about it due to the vows you have to swear before the understanding of customs is bestowed upon you.

I picked up the first of two boxes on Friday - unfortunately it was the one with all the cases so I have no minis yet. Tracking indicates the second box is at the post office, so I should be able to get it today (advantages of working next door to the post office...)

Picked mine up from the depot this morning. Not bad actually, one £23.17 fees, much less than I anticipated (I was expecting about £40).

 

Had a quick swiz through and the only defect I can find so far is the Frost Giant Queen is missing her spear. Need to check all in detail though but out of that amount of mini's I think one missing part isn't bad at all!

Got mine last Friday!

60% tax in each box (they charged me only for the US$ 100.00, so I didn´t pay the tax for the shipping cost).

As I got it with 2 friends It was two large boxes, and I heard that one friend in town that pledge only for the Vampire payed the same amount, (so Woohoo!)

 

I came to the Post office with one of my friends and we looked like a child in a toy store (it´s funny to see a couple 40 year-old guys giggling with no reason...)

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
