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.

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

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.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.
