I would not be too concerned about the tracking not working. We have 6 Pallets of product that *we* record as complete, but the UPS truck isn't scheduled to pick up until this morning. Until they take delivery, tracking won't work at all. They cannot send a normal driver, because these items are Palletized for freight/Container truck delivery, not standard UPS, so we have to schedule a pickup with UPS Freight.

Seems they are shipping out some American orders this morning.

 

Hence my earlier question. I had understood that all the Canadian orders were going to be blitzed through in one go but based on Bryan's post above the truck is picking up the stuff today and there are still some Canadians who have not received a confirmation note (myself included). While I'm as eager as the rest to get my Bones, I'm fine with whatever order they get sent out in, just seems like there's a deviation in the original plan on dealing with us Canucks.

 

Either way, every order shipped brings them one closer to mine so all is good.

From what was said by Bryan elsewhere, Canadian shipping will resume once the UPS representative decides to show up to oversee things to make sure it all goes smoothly.

 

 

 



Yes, they want all the Canadian out so UPS can oversee things. This is being done so Canadians will not have to pay any additional fees. Shipping has slowed because of this and that they are shipping larger Canadian orders.

Correct. We resume Canadian when our UPS rep gets in. We were doing 1,200 a day before The switchover, and most of that was due to the complexity of paperwork for the Brokerage. We anticipate going back up to that faster number once that's done.

ROW shipments are simpler from a shipping standpoint, as we automated our Customs forms years ago. It's just this byzantine process for Self-brokerage. I'm grateful for it, but it slowed us down a lot.

From the Kickstarter Comments:

If you have fewer items than we are working now (currently 6) be aware we had a few orders with 'issues' we are trying to sort out. Hopefully this afternoon.
Our Canadian rep rescheduled at the last minute and we currently have her scheduled to help us close out Canada tomorrow.
ROW (Rest of World) being shuffled to accomodate that reschedule.
I'm going to have my lunch now so I can be back in 30 minutes. Happy Counting!

Blast. They haven't even shipped yet and we're already waiting on UPS :P

 

Oh well, that much more chance they won't arrive until after my vacation (of not having time to paint) next week...

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
