Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

Bit more of a lurker then a poster, but considering I'm both Canadian and patiently awaiting the delivery here in Alberta, may as well chime in.

As for what I ordered:



-- Vampire x1
-- Orcapocalypse x1
-- Figure Case x1
-- Demons x1
-- Undead Giant x1
-- Forces Of Nature x1
-- Nethyrmaul x1
-- Kaladrax Reborn x1
-- C'thulhu x1
-- Hydra x1
-- KS Sophie UL x1
-- KickStarter Sophie x1

 

So I doubt I'll be first to get them, but you never know.

Eh eh, see see! There ARE other Canadians on here. I wonder when we'll first start seeing shipping going out. This weekend is not the best example of 'productivity' for shipping, due to Good Friday, Easter, and even April Fools, which I'm going to assume at least 3 Bones packages are going to be involved in some sort of inter-courier prank.

From Reaper on their Facebook page earlier this evening;

 

"We're waiting on some customs paperwork to clear before we can start the freight to Canada. Soon. "

Better yet, the comment they made just before that:

 

A note to our Canadian Kickstarter Backers....

We are working on how we are going to ship you your rewards. It's a choice between sending them all to RAFM (or friends) in Canada and having them ship them inside of Canada so you won't pay any taxes or duties or, signing up for a UPS program that allows us to do the same sort of thing. Either way, you will not have any taxes or duties due when your shipment arrives.

No worries, we are going to do what we told you and that's free shipping into Canada.

 

WOOT. I love reaper.

I'm the one sad loser on the forums that started in the hobby like 2 weeks after the KS closed, so... I'm waiting on my local retailers to get THEIR bones, so I can go pay 5x as much for them. Yaaaay...?

 

On that note, if anyone's wanting to sell off some doubles or trade for non-KS minis or something, let me know. I'm just outside Vancouver.

Or you could order the "vampire" package from Reaper (free shipping) at a 20% discount over buying the miniatures individually.

Are you making this up to tease me? I've never seen any such thing available.

No, he's not making it up, it's gonna cost somewhere in the region of $400. ReaperBryan mentioned it.

Found it!

Hey there,

I'm sure this is the elephant in the room in terms of questions but just how much will this one click complete set be? I know we'll find out eventually but having some idea beforehand will mean that we will be able to plan ahead and get the money together well in advance.

Thanks,

Brushchewer.

Got one! It will have an MSRP of $399

 

That's a 20% Discount of getting all the models individually.

And I want to be 100% clear: If you BACKED us, your Vampire is honored at $100, and Prices are honored EXACTLY as stated in the Kickstarter.

 

But I'm heading off to PAX, and we can offer them what is still an amazing deal at $150/Vampire, and all Options at +20% higher than backers got, which does, as Orlando says, mean the 17,744 got the best deal, and everybody else still gets a good deal.

 

After all, 240 minis for $150 is still awesome.

Just thought I'd leave this here, because non-backers won't have received this in e-mail:

 

 

OK, this link is for newbies only!!!

If you missed the Kickstarter and want to get involved, go enter in the e-mail you would like us to contact when the post KS Reaper pledge manager goes live.

If you've already pledge, this is not for you!

This is NOT a link to the Reaper Pledge Manager!

Sorry, it's a bunch of clips, but this should get what you want...

      Because we need more badelf fighting ladies.

      Kev White, the sculptor, seems to have paid attention during "The First Avenger." Great uniform details. But I've already got the muscular and dynamic Zenith (50080) in that role, so I went with our neighbors to the North. The shield is, again, my addition. 

       
      More angles: 

      Superhero team-up time! 

       
      And another mission (feat. Dirk Goodspeed, 50195, and Sasquatch, 50011).

       
      More Squatch:

      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?
    • By Otyugh
      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!
