Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

which I suspect means, either they have halted packing Canadian packages in favor of those they can actually send out the door, or we of the Glorious North shall get hit with a sudden Boneami wave all at once.

They will be splitting them as they go so im guessing once they sort it many Canadians will get boneified !

Interesting, well I guess I should not plan on getting mine any time soon then. Though in reality I was not expecting to see any bones till may anyways.

If we gotta wait for the canadian government, we may as well go hibernate in our igloos, eh? I got my beer, donuts and hockey on the CBC, so I'm set!

 

nah, but seriously, anyone hear anything lately about canadian orders?

With preparations for ReaperCon starting this week, as well as ReaperCon itself happening the latter part of the week and weekend, I don't expect we'll hear anything about Canadian orders until sometime late next week. If we're lucky.

I'm going to ReaperCon. Fingers crossed that I can get my Bones.

 

... Or at least see some in person.

It's kinda bothersome, knowing my box is sitting on a pallet in Texas waiting on someone a long way from here to review and approve a pretty standard request before it can get shipped, while people on the other side of the world are getting theirs, and that the reapercon Sophie and L2PK 4 and 5 I am about to order, will likely get here first.

I'd guess they are still waiting on the Canadian Government for the Brokerage Permit.

I've been trying to follow everything on Canadian status, and I've seen a couple mentions of the government being responsible for the delays, but I wonder where that is coming from? The last official word said they were waiting on UPS, no mention of the government being involved. Has Reaper made any actual claims along those lines or is this just speculation?

Just speculation from what I've seen, but then Reaper has been known to make a statement elsewhere without referencing it here.

Info directly from ReaperBryan from this topic: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/48346-bones-shipping-has-started-1st-arrival-reported/page-11#entry697215

On a positive note - I'm really hoping to have all of the International (non-canadian) Tier 1 & 2 rewards shipped by end of day Friday. We expect to have ALL Tier 1-3 rewards shipped by ReaperCon (to ALL backers - US, Canada*, and international non-Canada)

 

*Canadian rewards - we are waiting on the approval of our brokerage permit, which (I believe) is a government thing, and we had expected it by now, but apparently the canadian gov't is not as efficient as they would have us believe. We have a pallete ready to go, and once it is approved will have that on the way, e-mails will be sent once it is approved (we're deliberately holding the e-mails to keep people from expecting a box that is currently held up in red tape).

 

I hope that helps, I know it's not as positive as it could be, but we're making progress!

Edit: To attempt to help provide a place for Canadian KS supporters to get info, I've updated the first post in this topic with the information above. As new information comes out I'll do my best to update the topic so everyone can find it easily (As it tends to be spread out over multiple topics, and even forum sections).

 

If you know and can cite newer information than is in the main post, please share!

Thanks for maintaining this thread jaryth000 - I was starting to get the Bones itch and came to the forum to troll for info. This was handy (disappointing that there seems to have been no traction... but handy). :)

      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?

      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!
