Vampire level was always marked with an expected March 2013 date.

I think you're talking about the December to May post, in which case that post was referencing Canadian red tape issues taking six months.

worst of it is that it seems to apply to every part of the bureaucracy.

 

Even applying for a Government job it's 6 months before they call you for an interview.

That's not just Canada. I've had the same experience with the US government and several state governments.

 

Don't worry, though; they're there to help you.

 

Just ask them.

I would like to thank reaper for the email today with a status update.

 

I'm pretty sure we all already knew what was going on with the Canadian stuff but it does feel better to get an official update on the matter.

It sucks having to wait, but really, we can't complain. If I were given the option of paying for shipping and duties, I'd say "nah, I'll just wait longer and not pay any extra".

It is hard to see a cake in front of us and not have a piece, but most painters here already have a pile of unpainted stuff, so I'm in no rush.

 

Let's show our patience to Reaper (and Bryan) by all posting:

I can wait, I still have 16 unpainted minis. (substitute the number for your own, of course)

I can't substitute a "number" for the quantity of mini's I have waiting to be painted... Except perhaps as an abstract concept on some quantum level of an as yet undiscovered pseudo-mathematical/pseudo spiritual construct.

I'm excited for the parcel, but I can wait.

 

I really don't understand the mentality about the delivery date via kickstarter, it's not a guarantee, it's an estimate. I'm just happy that the project finished and will complete AND I'm not paying int'l shipping like in other projects. Having run my own KS, I guess I'll have to be ready for the expectations.

 

Thanks Reaper, I for one appreciate your efforts.

I can wait, I still have approximately* Aleph-Null miniatures left to paint.

 

* "Approximately Aleph-Null" is in the category, "Things that pass for humor to a mathematician".

Don't worry, though; they're there to help you empty your wallet.

 

Just ask them.

Fixed that for you.

It was too heavy and was likely to cause spinal problems in the long term anyway.

The sad, sad thing is I got it. And laughed.

Perhaps if you weighed them and told us in pounds it would be easier? :)

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      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.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.


      Party like a Barty.
