Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

 

At the risk of sounding like a sore loser, I'll second this idea. The "race" was won buy someone a few pages back who actually went to Texas and picked up his order. So, being one of the many canadians sitting on a pallet somewhere in the US, I still consider it unfinished. Let's just call the "Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race" from now on.

But if I may use the trademark the canadian politeness, let's say that once we all get our shipments, we're all winners.

Title Edited accordingly.

 

 

nice. Now, even though I lost, I can still win!

 

Now I can hardly wait to get my Bones, cuz all I have left to paint is Warmachine Warjacks. And I just discovered that I don`t like painting Warjacks. But I`ve been keeping busy by snatching up clearance Star Wars pocketmodels at the dollarstore. I now have a new addiction (God help me!)

Got my delivery notice from UPS this evening. They are delivering tomorrow!! :bday::bday::bday:

 

On a day off too! thought that does mean that I will be sitting by the door until it arrives - but there are much worse things to be doing with a day off

Once that stuff starts moving though it doesn't stop - travels all night and day (the UPS guy where I work is really..uh..enthusiastic about package delivery).

 

I too got a notice that my shipment will arrive tomorrow - this is awesome as I am off tomorrow and only have yard work planned!! (if I don't pass out from the 40C+ weather we're having)

Sigh, F5 is not always your friend:

Scheduled Delivery Updated To: Thursday, 07/18/2013, By End of Day

 

Ah well. Sorting area is almost set up. Want to get them all sorted so I can get my friends' parts to them before I start vacation on Friday.

If they come tomorrow: sorting. Otherwise: Pacific Rim....

40c? Where abouts are you that you're getting that hot?

It hit 40c (with Humidex) here in Fredericton yesterday.

Estimated delivery for mine is tomorrow as well. Since we're going through a horrible heat wave currently I suppose sitting on the front porch all day wouldn't be such a bad thing.

40+ temperatures here as well (southern Ontario). I'm a little worried the minis will turn into a puddle of plastic in the back of the delivery truck. It does get oven hot back there.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
