Bit more of a lurker then a poster, but considering I'm both Canadian and patiently awaiting the delivery here in Alberta, may as well chime in.

As for what I ordered:


-- Vampire x1

-- Orcapocalypse x1

-- Figure Case x1

-- Demons x1

-- Undead Giant x1

-- Forces Of Nature x1

-- Nethyrmaul x1

-- Kaladrax Reborn x1

-- C'thulhu x1

-- Hydra x1

-- KS Sophie UL x1

-- KickStarter Sophie x1


So I doubt I'll be first to get them, but you never know.


It all showed up today, but now I'm at work, contemplating where to begin. Also need to sort out what I'm willing to part with for friends and what is a must keep.


Undead Giant definitely a favorite already.

Bones get! Calgary. Delivery at ~1800, on schedule.


100% Vampire fulfillment. Nothing more, nothing less. I am within the standard deviation for "woobly weapon" syndrome and have a few "Matrix stand-ins". My 80025 "Bonnie" is really pulling a Neo, the base tip lifts up a good quarter inch in front because she's leaning back so far. Merisiel also got pretty bent out of shape (hur hur). A handful of minis are also leaning despite being really sturdy (Dain Deepaxe is at ~30 degrees bent over his boots, and he's pretty sturdy). I'm hoping they straighten on their own. Finally, I have 3-4 minis that require rhinoplasty.


My PF Red Dragon has two right wings. Anyone in YYC end up with 2 lefts?


I am very pleased with 99% of the minis. Will definitely pick up the pre-KS Bones, some of the addons that I missed, and any future Bones too (gotta collect em all!), especially if they're blister packed. Some of these guys look so badass, I might pick them up in metal to see what details I'm missing.


Finally, the included pamphlet has a list of the MSP colour triads, but doesn't seem to have any of the new colors from KS Paint Set 2 and 4. Not sure if that was on purpose 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.

      Party like a Barty.






      Yoho, a Pirate's unlife for me:


      Draugr...I mean, Rune Wights.







      They're not sure why they've been typecast as Thieves:

      "What do your Elven eyes see?"

      Kobolds, the only thing as dangerous as a Giant Rat in a starter dungeon.

      Under the Sea.
