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!

*sharpening goblin sword*

 

While I'm happy you got your stuff at Reapercon, you'll want to be careful teasing your countrymen. We're beginning to get a little feral.

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.

      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.
