Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

So there's two issues? P.o box Canada orders and west Canada orders?


P.o are still at reaper and west is at the border correct?


Btw knee surgery went well I'm now back home


That's correct.


We are anticipating UPS movement today on the WCan stuff at the border based on a twit from Reaper. If it's not today, then tomorrow. If not tomorrow, we start asking the same questions again.

Man, you forgot to play up the 1000th post! I think this is now the largest thread on the forums by a LONG yard!


<Cue "Canada's Really Big">


I was tempted. I saw the post before was the 999th, and was tempted, but thought it not worth mentioning.


I think it is however safe to say that there is a CONSIDERABLE amount of Canadian Reaper customers.


Also that while we're kind, polite and patient, we do have our limits, and waiting on UPS is one of those limits.



All things considered, in my prior experiences with horrible horrible UPS service, this particular experience was actually one of the least painful I've had. They successfully delivered the package, to the right door, and without just ditching it, and without gouging me for money. Its a small miracle, I swear.


Even though I have my package, I wont be fully satisfied until every Canadian (within reason) has their package in their hands.


I'm just glad that this topic was at least somewhat successful in aiding in passing around what little knowledge was available for waiting Canadians.

My BC bound UPS tracking page has finally been updated. Current location is Calgary and slated for arrival this coming Tuesday. It is about time, can't wait.

Good for you! ::):


I just checked mine. No update yet. ::(:

Trackpack has updated and I received an email from UPS!




It seems UPS has discovered time travel, and will deliver my package yesterday (or since it's past midnight, two days ago). Good Work.


UPS: Bringing you yesterday's deliveries....tomorrow!

Well, they could always outsource to...

Geesh. Get so busy at work that you can't visit the forums or even check your personal email for two days and you miss the first real steps of your baby news about your Bones.


That said, while I don't seem to have an official notice from UPS, I just checked the tracking ID they originally sent me and this is what it said in the top section:


Scheduled Delivery:

Tuesday, 07/30/2013, By End of Day


Last Location:

Departed - Calgary, AB, Canada, Saturday, 07/27/2013

The Shipment Progress history section states it was scanned for departure at 2:11 local time (Mountain) which (as they use 24 hour time codes) would be very early this morning.


This, Port Moody, BC girl is now very happy. Which, of course, means it's time for a Snoopy Dance!!!

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.

      Hey everyone, here's another sarcophagus I painted for an upcoming D&D session. This one is the 77632, Sarcophagus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

      Hey everyone, here's a two-piece model I painted for my current D&D campaign. Strongly attached to the Halloween theme 77540, Large Sarcophagus sculpted by Kevin Williams. A place of eternal rest, unless there are ghouls around.

      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.
