From the Kickstarter comments:

@Craig McClung: UPS came back and said we had to redo everything for Canada. Rather than lose a day, we are working the current book of US orders. We will reset Canadian orders tonight after hours and be ready to pull that trigger tomorrow.
I'm really sorry, and please know we are doing everything we can to do this so there's no screw ups.
Also, orders escalate quickly from here. Before 5 lines or 6 lines took over a day. The next US book of 1500 orders starts partway through 8 items, and closes out 9 and 10, and begins 11!
Rest Of World Book currently scheduled for Thursday if nothing else goes kablooie.

Poor Reaper. That just goes to show just how awesome they are, though, that they're opting to stay after hours to fix things. I hope they get a nice long break after this, they've totally earned it!!

 

Huzzah!

Just posted on Kickstarter by Bryan:

 

Now, current data re: Canada and ROW.
Canada, we can process to your 3 Easternmost provinces, but not to the West. It's a thing. I'm not pleased but we need another form signed to ship to Calgary. I am not sure right now if we will return to Canadian shipments tomorrow as originally planned - with only 750 to go, I think we want to do them all and not do just Hal of those. Either way, when I'm done typing this, I'm breaking down pallets for reprocessing.
ROW: your stuff is going US Postal, and we are anticipating 2 days of fulfillment there. I'm waiting on a phone call from the Denton postmaster to arrange them to leave us a truck rather than our usual carrier.
I think that's everything. For those worried, we really are trying to solve this as fast as possible - and we do appreciate your patience. 1,100-1,300 people a day are getting their parcels, and we should finish the remaining 9,626 in just over 7 work days. That should be before we leave for July 4 Holiday, Again, assuming no further Kablooie.
:)

 

 

 

Now I'm in those easternmost provinces. I am, in fact, in the easternmost province of all. I'm as far east as North America goes.

 

It's Reaper's call, but I'm prepared to wait until we can all get our Canadian goodies and let them do US/RoW in the interim until the issue is resolved.

Ha, this figures. That means that I'm not in the next US book, but the one after that (14 items). So what's going to happen is they're going to do US orders tomorrow, make it through that book, then flip to Canada and ROW and not get back to US until Tuesday of next week. My order will go out that night, but because of the 4th I won't get it until the following week.

 

Or something goes kablooie and they have to stick with US orders until they're done. So...uh...if anything happens you can still blame Buglips. Just to be safe.

      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!
