Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

Mine were delivered today! I'm suddenly feeling ill. Maybe I should take the afternoon off.

 

Take, as my wife calls it, a vision day: "I just can't see working today."

I no longer view this as a competitive race, this has become one of those charity marathons, the ones where no matter what place you come in, first, third, or dead last, everyone cheers for you and congratulates you for being awesome.

 

Congratulations to everyone that's gotten their package!

I have my bones!!! :bday::bday: :bday:

 

I have even managed to hide a lot of evidence, so my domestic boss will not see exactly how much I have. :devil:

But my daughters and I will be painting bones for quite a while.

:wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub:

 

Edit: For the record, strapped and taped.

2nd Edit: I did sign for my box but I'm also sitting less than 3m from the front door so the delivery dude didn't have time to give up and run back to the truck.

I hope you understand that my current hate for you all is nothing personal.

 

Latest update I've had is still the one from July 11th.

At one point, I think there was discussion that there would be two entry points: Calgary and something in Ontario. It seems like a bunch of orders made it to Ontario a day or so ago, and are now arriving in the east. Maybe the Calgary truck hasn't arrived yet, so the west still has another day or two.

 

(I could believe Toronto-ish being a day closer to Denton than Calgary is, so that might account for the difference.)

Calgary is also 4 hours from the border, and our border crossing is also much smaller than the Ont. crossing. It could take an extra day (or two, since the distance is also greater) to arrive in YYC for distribution. I think the roads by way of High River are running normally now, so the trucks don't have to sit in traffic forever.

 

Once they're there (here), the trucks will then ship off to BC, so that'll be an extra two days if you're West Coast, or 1 day if you're interior. At the absolute worst, they'll arrive next week. They shouldn't be that long though...

Mine is scheduled for By End of Day. I'll hand out cigars to celebrate my 7.2 lb baby.

 

I'm just glad there's no F5 key on my front door...

There is… it's called the curtain (or blinds). :devil:

Mine is still scheduled for the end of today, but seeing as it is 5:30 local time and there have been no updates since it departed Concord I'm gonna assume it's still on the big truck (likely wasting time stopping in NB to drop off Bones there ::P: ).

 

So I'm going to the show and expecting it tomorrow. Time for giant robots vs giant monsters...

      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.
