Bones Shipment Tracking thread

Recommended Posts

I had a UK delivery and it sailed through customs and to parcel force. Sorry to this guys in the UK getting hit harder with his :(. I think the Bones are worth the extra VAT anyway in my opinion. It certainly won't put me off pledging for Bones II.

The friend of mine who's Bones I have appropriated until ours turn up had his come straight through, no problems.

 

I think his and yours (D3) must both have come through in the same shipment before customs decided to start checking the Reaper packages.

 

And I still have every intention of pledging for Bones II, Reaper seem like the kind of company which actually learns from previous problems so I'm hoping they'll make it smoother next time. Also MOAR BONES!! I can't say no to that. :)

Just adding my info to track. The "OMG they've shipped!" post should be earlier in this thread. I got a notice from the postal customs office on 20 Aug saying I have to give them an invoice or something more than Reaper's word written on the box. After I sent them the papers (emailed personal data/Amazon transaction/bank transaction were enough) the processing lasted about 7 days (and yes I did have to pay 23% VAT based on the transaction amount, not Reaper's declaration). Just to close the page on mine. :)

3 of us here with Bones orders, one sailed through clean as a whistle, the other two got snagged. Of the three, two are gladly homed, and one still shivers awaiting finance juggling. Bones 2 is gonna be tempting, and I can see Reaper have clearly learned and adapted after the previous debacle, but I might still have to pass this time around.

 

And Pierzasty, they let you email them, and it went through ok? Lucky.. I had to FAX mine. Who uses Faxes anymore???

The Bones deals are so cheap that I don't mind paying the VAT too much. But the handling fee annoys me a bit as the post office are just minting it.

Parcelfarce have finally sent out a letter asking for £72! It has now been paid, and hopefully our Bones will arrive on Monday.

 

I understand that we're still having issues economically, and that lowering import taxes is not an option right now, have to encourage people to buy locally etc. etc. However I am really annoyed that Parcelfarce sat on our package for so long before doing anything about it. It arrived with them on the 27th August, they didn't bother to let us know they had it and needed more information until mid September sometime (which we replied almost instantly to) and they finally sent us the bill last week. We have to pay them a handling fee for the privilege of sitting on our stuff and doing nothing with it for a month.

/rant

 

I'd love to be able to support the UK economy more and buy more miniatures from over here, however we don't have a Reaper. I know we've got Mantic, but I think all their Kickstarters have been for entire games or armies, which is not what I'm interested in. I want tonnes of RPG miniatures, so Reaper is the way to go. It would make me a very happy gamer if Reaper set up a UK, or even European distributor.

Tariffs have never, ever helped an economy. Fact. I understand VAT is slightly different, but it still annoys me to see governments chasing tiny trades like this. It's just inefficient.

I would second a European distributor.

Yes! It's finally arrived!

 

*does the happy dance*

 

I've checked all the add-ons and one Vampire box, and it's all there so far. Just the second Vampire to check now, but I'll leave that till the morning. Can't face more sorting just now, the logic in the packing of the vampire box was... mostly non existant.

That's great to hear. Are you in for KS2?

 

Gives you 12 months to paint 2 x vampire sets ;)

Finally got to my folks' house and unpacked my bones. Final tally is 1 miscast (Deladrin, Assassin), two missing (Mr. Bones and a Tiik Champion), and one fire giant warrior missing his spiked balls on chains. The other 1,318 miniatures were fine, as were my paints and cases.

 

EDIT: Here's a picture of my cat helping me sort through the bones:

Yup, I even managed to get the early bird shipping, so I don't have time to slack on my painting!

 

I seriously doubt I'll manage to get everything painted in a year, but I'm hoping to at least get all the monsters done.

 

@Jack - My cat was also very interested in them. I don't think I should leave her alone with them or they may get nibbled :(

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
