Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

 

Customs nabbed the molds and sent 'em back.

 

 

 

 

 

Somewhere in Regina there's an entire customs warehouse filled with Vampire boxes built into a little fort by the border guard.

I do hope something happens soon. At this rate my mailing address will change before they arrive. Though, if they're sending it through the regular postal service then that shouldn't be an issue right? They'll just hold it for me at the post office.

I got my paints and vampire boxes and they are fantastic!

 

I do have to admit that I cheated in this race as I was able to go down to ReaperCon this year.

 

The best part is that not only did I get my two vampire boxes but I was able to win a third in the auction using Reaperbucks. For those of you who haven't made it to ReaperCon yet, Reaperbucks are tokens you get for free when you play games or take classes. At the end of convention on Sunday, you use these tokens to bid on various items - no real money allowed. This year they had 10 Vampire boxes, a bunch of other bones and a Kally painted by Martin! There were also great miniatures from Bombshell Babes and buildings from Miniature Building Authority.

 

Reaper definitely knows how to throw a party!

Some race. The contestants haven't even left the starting point, they haven't even started their engines. Basically, they are still in the garage, whilst race officials haggle over routes. Meanwhile, the rest of the world already has racers crossing the finish line.

 

Maybe MiniCannuck can send one mini to every Canadian in the forum. It's only fair. He did say boxes after all.

Well, sounds like a good time. Free box of minis like that is pretty wild. :)

 

Can someone poke Brian and see whether UPS or pallet shipping was the final decision? This has been a long wait just to hear any final news. :*(

As mentioned above, I did poke Bryan, but he has taken some much needed and much earned time off after ReaperCon. He has stated he will ask around and see what the current status is.

 

As always I will update everyone as soon as I receive new information.

 

Also, congrats MiniCannuck! Not only did you get your stuff, but winning an extra Vamp as well? Thats awesome! Unfortunately for cheating I'm going to have to disqualify you from the race, and ask you kindly to leave Canada ;).

I haven't seen anything official as to how shipping to Canada.

I've heard rummour that reaper is trying to becmoe thier own broker for shipping, but I haven't heard anything about when we should expect shipping to start or if there is a date that Reaper will ship to Canada even if they do not recieve their broker status.

 

I'm really looking forward to getting all my stuff, I know I'll be close to the end as I go a lot but I just want to know if this is days/weeks/months away from shipping.

 

Thanks

Soon.

 

Last word was that getting Bones across the Maple Curtain was Bryan's top priority. I think sled dogs were involved.

You know what they say

 

"Getting the Canadian government to do anything requiers 6 months plus paperwork"

 

 

honestly seems true a lot of the time

I don't expect it will be months. We're still being sorted, it's just the palette hasn't moved.

 

And while it might seem to be nice to have an update, Reaper will tell us as soon as they know something different. So no word = no change. Still waiting to hear back.

 

There. Freshly updated with the latest news. Just pretend Bryan wrote it.

      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!
