:( Mine didn't make it.

 

United States 07/02/2013 14:10 Received into UPS possession

 

 

I had been thinking that the return of the packages that failed to get through would be a required precondition for them to move forward with Canadian shipping. I'm really hoping this means something can now happen. (Whatever that 'something' might be.)

I wish there was a way for Reaper to just direct ship my order. At this point I'm more than happy to process it through Canada customs and pick it up at the UPS depot myself. At worst I'll have to pay $40 or $50 in tax.

 

I'm seriously thinking of of telling reaper to just screw UPS and send my package USPS. I'll pay for the shipping, I don't care how much it is

If you think that's tempting, I have a USPS P.O. Box which also accepts UPS, FedEx, Etc. One little adjustment in the pledge manager and I could be shipping next week.

Nevertheless I'm not changing anything. I can wait for Reaper to do things their UPS's way and I certainly don't want to throw any last-minute monkey wrenches into the works.

A friend just outside of Peterborough, ON just got his package today. I'm trying to remain optimistic that I may see mine before my most recent offspring makes their debut (ETA six days), else they may sit in miniature limbo for quite some time...

I figured out what the problem is: Canada Customs thinks that we're trying to get organic material shipped across the border.

 

"What are these things Terry?"

 

"Says here on the packing form they're some kind of figurines."

 

"You mean, like those wee lil animals my gramma used to get in the red rose tea packets?"

 

"I think so Dean."

 

"So, what are they made of?"

 

"Says here they're made out of bones."

 

"Hold the phone there Terry! That sounds like a five eleven! Just give 'er!"

 

Alarms sound, flashing red lights, huge steel doors slam down, securing the immediate area.

      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!

      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!
