Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

So is it "all" Canadian orders, or "all" as in all that are already packed? I guess they never said, so idk. Would be nice to get my minis :)

I'm 99.9% sure it will be the pre packed pallets of Non addon Canadian stuff that was already prepped to go.

I dunno. It's unusually specific. There's probably not a huge number of us as a group, and the poor vamp-level people had to wait, and UPS wants to be on-hand, and it's all going to the same (initial) destination. Might make sense for them to just do us all and have done in one shipment. So I think I'm going to put my money down on "all" actually meaning "all".

 

We'll know if I get a message when the vamp-level people do - because I've got some of everything. So if I'm going out with the others, then I think it means all of us are going the same time. We'll see.

Yeah, I suspect Buggy has the right of it and all the already packed stuff, plus all the soon to be packed stuff, will go at once. Considering Canada has had to wait so long, I half suspect that Reaper will just dive in and fill out the few remaining orders right off the bat so they can clear all our stuff out of the way and have more room to work.

 

note: this is pure speculation on my part. I do NOT know. I will not know until next week at the earliest if all of Canada gets shipped out at once, and even then, only by comparing shipment notices will we even be able to come up with any idea in what order stuff went out, and that's unlikely to happen.

I'm not sure if the Badginator is working - entered all info, clicked submit, and got nada. No response. Period. Ideas?

I seem to recall that the badginator would only be available to activate for a limited period of time.

 

Normally I'd suggest contacting Kit, but I'm pretty sure he's been transformed into a warehouse monkey like the rest of the Reaper peeps for the next 8-10 days and is currently busy throwing cartons around.

Well as a Canadian I heartily endorse the idea that they might be shipping all Canadian orders at the same time. It would definitely make for a dramatic finish to the "Great Canadian Bones Race."

That's my assessment as well. It would make border-crossing a bazillion times easier if every UPS truck has the exact same thing in them. Plus the truckers get to sing Convoy for the entire 10 hour drive.

Denton, TX to Southern Ontario is not a 10-hour drive. Trust me on this. :zombie:

depending on traffic, it should be about two days, unless the UPS guys bend the laws in regards to how long a driver can go without sleeping. Fortunately it is summer, because there are a few states that have laws where truckers may only drive during daylight.

yeah, but 2 drivers per truck ensures that gas stops are the only requirement. like a submarine!

 

also, do we know they're being driven? doesn't UPS have planes? you know, air mail.

 

also, I want my Reaper order to come in before my KS order, so I can finish 4 more minis before the BoneStorm

The US orders I've seen say UPS Ground - which makes sense because that's probably where the bulk rate deal comes from.

 

Customs is always the time killer - without that the average delivery time to an address in Canada should be approx. five days or less.

 

Certain places, like Buglipsia, may take longer if by ground as I'm dependent on a water link that has an annoying tendency to be tied up due to weather. Oh, look. Waves on the ocean. Can't sail today!

 

And north of 60 is anybody's guess.

I'm pretty sure not - he's supposedly working on a 'X many Bones served' counter for the front page of the Reaper website from what I understand. Highly technical. Probably take him at least 3 more weeks to implement >.>

The Reaper main page now has a big counter of how many items in how many orders are left, how many orders have shipped, and the destination of the latest order.

 

All of the destinations this morning have been Canadian. ::D:

 

Helloooo, Winnipeg! (just what's up there this second)

      I've been trying to do a bit of painting every day, since RCon is coming up so soon. I have a problem with long-term projects, though, so I need to occasionally work on something quick and sweet in between. Sometimes I need to finish something to keep me motivated, you know? Tonight's lucky candidate was this bear, whom I love. His name is Randall and he likes standing in fields.
       
      Anyhow, enjoy!

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!

      I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
