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...

      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.


       

       
       

       
       

       

       

      Yoho, a Pirate's unlife for me:


       

       
       
      Draugr...I mean, Rune Wights.


       

       

       

       

       

       

      They're not sure why they've been typecast as Thieves:


       
       
      "What do your Elven eyes see?"


       
       
       
      Kobolds, the only thing as dangerous as a Giant Rat in a starter dungeon.
       

       
       
      Under the Sea.
