Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

Current Status: Shipments to Canada have gone out, UPS has delivered the majority of them. Some orders (to PO Boxes) have gone out via Canada Post.

 

 

 

In an attempt to take this topic in a new direction, I will do my best to provide Canada relevant information to all Canadian KS supporters.

 

June 10th - Reaper Bryan updates the following:

 

Canadian Shipments have been approved - we were cleared to go, and now have to put everything on pallets to be unwrapped in Ontario and disseminated.

 

"Kaladrax, Wings" is a reference to the parts inside being Kaladrax AND his wings - because the body molds were listed as Kaladrax Mold 1, Kaladrax Mold 2, Kaladrax Mold 3, Kaladrax Mold 4, Kaladrax Mold 5, and Wings. Not Kaladrax Mold 6, Not Kaladrax Wings. The mold is called "Wings" on the spreadsheet. So the box is labeled with both "mold names". No, I don't understand why a part with 6 molds has 2 names, instead of either 6 names or one name, but hey, I just work here.

 

A Vamp box weighs in at 1.5Kg, A Kaladrax, with his wings, is 1.25 Kg. We do not yet have an average, but expect to be shipping a lot of 4-6Kg boxes.

 

Some were also asking about C'thulhu - C'thulhu was on the same shipment as Kaladrax, likewise Nethyrmaul. The big 3 are all in. Wyrmgear, however, is on the last (the ULTIMATE!) Truck.

 

I think that's everything.

Gotta run, Be excellent to each other!

May 6th - Reaper KS Update #91 was sent out and stated the following:

 

During the run of our Kickstarter campaign, we promised that we'd get you your stuff without you being nailed with a bunch of customs fees. To that end, we've had to apply for non-resident importer status to Canada. This way, we absorb the cost of the customs fees, and you get local delivery of your pledge packages. Unfortunately, we're caught in a bureaucratic morass of red tape. We were led to believe that we would be finished with this part of the process in December 2012, but we've been there for months now. Happily, we've received word from our customs broker that we're very close to having our application finalized, and as soon as we have the all clear, you'll start receiving your things. We're terribly sorry for the delay, but this was the only way to do it without sa ddling you with the import fees.

tl;dr: We're stuck in red tape, but the end is near, and we start duty-free shipments to Canada soon.

 

April 3rd - (found here) states the following:

On a positive note - I'm really hoping to have all of the International (non-canadian) Tier 1 & 2 rewards shipped by end of day Friday. We expect to have ALL Tier 1-3 rewards shipped by ReaperCon (to ALL backers - US, Canada*, and international non-Canada)

 

*Canadian rewards - we are waiting on the approval of our brokerage permit, which (I believe) is a government thing, and we had expected it by now, but apparently the canadian gov't is not as efficient as they would have us believe. We have a pallete ready to go, and once it is approved will have that on the way, e-mails will be sent once it is approved (we're deliberately holding the e-mails to keep people from expecting a box that is currently held up in red tape).

 

I hope that helps, I know it's not as positive as it could be, but we're making progress!

This topic will (hopefully?) be updated with more Canadian shipping information as it progresses.

 

 

Original Post below:

An idea I got from Suden, call it a competition, a race. First Canadian (that actually lives in Canada) to get their bones shipment wins. What do you win? all of our jealousy!

 

Are you a Reaper Bones Kickstarter Backer that lives in Canada? This topic is now your home! What did you order? Where do you live? Post it here!

I'm living in Peterborough, ON, and here is the stuff some crafty person will soon be able to snatch off my porch:

 


-- Vampire x1 $100
-- Fire Giants x1 $10
-- Frost Giants x1 $10
-- Starter Paint Set x1 $18
-- Figure Case x1 $25
-- Spider Centaurs x1 $10
-- C'thulhu x1 $10
-- Deep Dwellers x1 $7
-- Starter Set 2 x1 $18
-- Kaladrax Reborn x1 $10
-- Nethyrmaul x1 $25
-- Forces Of Nature x1 $15
-- Fire Giant Warriors x1 $10
-- Red Dragon x1 $10
-- Clockwork Dragon x1 $15
-- Demons x1 $15
-- IMEF Paint Set x1 $18
-- Undead Paint Set x1 $18
-- Frost Wyrm x1 $10
-- There Be Dragons x1 $15
-- Deathsleet x1 $10
-- Ebonwrath x1 $10

 

I swapped Sophie for the carrying case. The list of things I didn't get is considerably smaller: Mind your "Manor"s, Undead Giant, Mythos Monsters, Jabberwock, and the Hydra.

 

I hadn't looked at this list since shortly after finishing up the pledge manager, it seems I had forgotten some things. I thought I only bought 3 paint sets, but it seems I got all four. Originally, I had planned on skipping most of the dragons due to financial concerns, it was only after Reaper offered up the pay-pal add-on that I relented and grabbed them all. I had originally planned on getting Mythos Monsters, but when C'thulhu arrived, I didn't need C'thulhu light anymore.

 

The only one I really regret skipping is the Hydra, I'll be picking him up the moment he is available in the store. I probably could use the Mind your "Manor"s as well, but that's a much lower priority. The undead giant looks cool, but it is too large to see use in a game as it seems too tall for a giant. Definitely out of scale with the other giants in this project. Jabberwock is in the same boat, looks interesting but I can't imagine using it.

Just noticed that RAFM is in Brantford - that's only 50 km away! I like those odds! Though I might not be in the first shipment, with vampire + 2 paint sets + 2 cases + half a dozen add-ons.

On a farm, kinda near Edmonton AB. All I got was the standard Vampire + the carying case (I kept Sophie, now I almost wonder if I shouldn't have traded her in for some of the extras, but I still want Sophie so no...but I want dragons....and I couldn't afford both.....Damnit)

 

 

Oh, Buglips, word fo advice. put the chihuahua as the lead dog, that way both it and the husky get to enjoy the view, they will be much happier that way, I' almost certain of it

I'm in Vancouver and ordered

 

-- Vampire x1 $150
-- Figure Case x1 $25
-- Kaladrax Reborn x1 $12
-- C'thulhu x1 $12

I really wish I had ordered a Nethyrmaul but, for whatever reason, there was no option to select it in the RPM when I confirmed my pledge, so I got the figure case instead. I'm glad that i'll probably get my stuff after my exams. I'm not sure I would be able to study effectively with a large mass of fresh minis to get to.

I'm in St. Catharines, Ontario.

 

I think I'll be losing this race as I ordered 2 vampire and at least 1 of everything else.

Well, I'm no regular, but I'll try to remember this thread when my order comes in.

 

Moncton, NB

 

Vampire Level

+ There be Dragons

+ Demons

+ Undead Giant

+ Pathfinder Red Dragon

 

So, if RAFM is taking care of canadian orders, do they have to wait for Reaper to ship from Texas? or are they getting their models from China?

Hi all,

Don't post much on this forum.

Patiently awaiting my order in balmy Winnipeg, Manitoba.

As to what I ordered, I honestly can't remember. All I know is that its the vampire level with almost 1 of every add on.

Just a quick ? to all the other Canadians. Has anyone heard of which shipper Reaper is using?

I am fine with USPS or RAFM. Hopefully NOT UPS. The shipping and brokerage fees are almost as much as the order.

As long as it's free shipping (without handling fees, brokage fees, or anything with the word fee in it), i'm cool with it.

Waiting on my shipment from Montreal.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
