The UPS truck came by and dropped off nearly 11 pounds of miniatures for me a few minutes ago. Too sweet! I'll have to get things inventoried this evening, but for now I'm thrilled . . .

Hmmm... I still have yet to hear anything from UPS or Reaper (emailed Reaper yesterday about it). I wonder if they are working their way from the East to the West... anyone in BC here that has received a UPS notice?

Still no update here from UPS after the first one that provided the tracking number and I'm in Port Moody, BC (Suburb of Vancouver).

 

pout ::(:

 

I was really hoping they'd be here by this weekend.

You and me both... I'm in Victoria, so we're *obviously* getting the short end of the stick out West..... I suppose that UPS will have to hire a rowboat to get them to me too....

Across the river, up the hill, and over the dale from you here in North Delta.

 

Same situation here. No update since the original tracking number was given. I'm assuming that things are progressing behind the scenes though and that my Bones will show up without warning.

Okay, apparently I am going to have to email Reaper again. This is day 2 without a reply, and I still don't even have an original email from Reaper saying my item was handed over to UPS.

Between this and another parcel return/customer service issue with a company overseas, I'm getting very discouraged. :(

B.C.'ite here, last update I got was the following, a week ago.

 

A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.

Mine arrived this afternoon in Québec City! YESSSSss!

 

I haven't found a mistake in the KS or my options and so far, only a reaper goblin didn't have a shield arm... i'm gonna fashion him a stumpy arm! Kaladrax Reborn is a HUGE monster!! Glad i got that option.

 

Good luck to the rest of you!

Mine has now officially been delivered. It is sitting in my kitchen. I am at work. I no longer wish to be at work.

A large portion of the people in this topic have now already gotten their bones, or will soon be getting theirs, or are waiting for the UPS email, so the following may be a stupid question, but should I post unboxing pictures if anyone wants to see them?

No.

 

Pictures of others receiving their Bones burns. Oh how it burns...

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, go ahead and post your pics. I know you want to.

Some information for those in Canada with a Box number, and not a street address:

 

apparently our Bones packages will be shipping by Canada Post, and not UPS. Also, it wasn't specified whether they

had actually been shipped or not...

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.
