Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

Same here. Just says scheduled today, end of day.

 

Recently, though, Amazon.ca has been using UPS and this same method. Sometimes it updates, sometimes it just shows up with no info between "label created" and delivery. USPS has been the same way lately. The three back to back Reaper regular orders I had to make ranged from updates practically every time they jostled to zero information at all.

At least you're scheduled. Mine reads "A shipping label has been created". It's like surprise Christmas. You know it's coming, but which day is a surprise. Could be tomorrow...could be two weeks from thursday....who knows?

 

My USPS-shipped Reaper order was happy to track itself from Denton to "Canada" until it ended up on my doorstep and switched status to Delivered, which was equally useless.

I just talked to the useless tools at UPS. Please correct me if I am blatantly incorrect, but isn't it odd that Ontario and points east all see to have delivery information and/or their Bones yet western Canada knows nothing beyond that a label has been printed with a tracking number?

Mine were delivered to St. Thomas, ON 2 days ago, picked them up from my grandmas yesterday. Cut them out of the packages, but didn't look at them long, am busy lately.

Mine arrived 2 days ago, delivered by a UPS rep who rang the doorbel then ran away to her truck like a thief. Funny!

 

Every single mini and part is accounted for: Vampire, Force of Nature (yep!), Deep Dwellers and Cthulhu for myself as well as Kaladrax, Nethyrmaul and a griffon for friends. There was also an extra set of NOVA troopers (just how many of those were made in excess, I wonder!) and an extra Kaladrax girl.

 

Sidenote: Hot glue works wonderfully well on Cthulhu and Nethyrmaul after heating the joints a little, I assume because at a high enough temperature it melts and fuses with the plastic. Hot glue is flexible and can be heated/cooled over and over (!), which means you can overfill joints and touch up the area with the tip of the glue gun again and again to make it seamless, then come back a few days later and redo the job if you so desire. It didn't hold Kaladrax's wings and tail pieces very well (maybe it would with pegs), but this one was bought as a display piece so it's actually a good thing that the limbs remain detachable.

I think that's the LTPK trooper guy, not Sir Forscale (although he's almost as universally known).

Anyway, thanks for the pictures!

got mine Thurdsay, but couldn't open it until after work on Friday. I've been speechless ever since. Happy to report that my order was 100% accurate, although an error in my favor would have been nice.

Is it strange that UPS is crap? No...no it is not.

 

I would have payed extra to opt for another shipping company.

 

LUCKILY i'm in no hurry to to receive them, got lots of stuff to paint as is.

      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.
