Great Canadian Mass Shipment Bones Race

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone left still waiting?

 

I hope not. I got mine. There's a few missing so I need to get an email to Reaper ASAP but everything is SO NICE!

 

Maybe it's time to plan a Reaper Bones party for the Vancouver area?

This was what I was getting.

 

Deep Dwellers x1
Undead Giant x1
Kaladrax Reborn x1
Hydra x1
Fire Giant Warriors x1
Forces of Nature x1
There Be Dragons x1
Red Dragon x1
Clockwork Dragon x1
Mind your Manors x1
Frost Giants x1
Fire Giants x1
Vampire x1

 

But due to issues with UPS, I'm still waiting on mine.

UPS decided to be rather rude and returned mine without trying to contact anyone, deliver them, or letting anyone pick them up.

UPS says they delivered them back to the vendor, but Reaper says they don't have them, and due to the way UPS does things I can't claim the package to be lost as it's not directed to me.

It's fustrating as it took more than a month for Reaper to get back to me via Email after I let them know that UPS was returning my Bones.

My UPS Shipment was a disaster too.

Took them three times to understand that I didn't live there anymore.

 

They shipped to my apartment three days after I moved out and gave the keys back.

However, I do have mine. I hope that gets cleared up soon too.

The waiting was brutal.

 

If you are in the Calgary or Airdrie areas, I have some spare goblins and kobolds... and marines.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm in New Westminster, bit of a drive.

 

Actually, my situation was a lot like yours, I was moving, but I managed to get Reaper to send my Bones to my parents place.

Only UPS being UPS, this situation arose.

I got tired of waiting on email and called this morning, it's looking like someone other than Reaper got my Bones.

Despite this I'm still looking forward to the Bones 2 kickstarter, and will probably be dropping some money on it if I get the chance.

That sucks. I live on a farm in Saskatchewan and hate dealing with courier companies especially UPS. I refuse to buy anything anymore if UPS is the only shipping option. DHL has done good for me as they'll leave my parcels in town at their drop of point and I can pick them up whenever I'm there. I hope Reaper will be able to sort something out for you.

It does suck, there were problems with every delivery service in my old home town, until Purolator opened a branch there.

They've done a fairly decent job, infact UPS subcontracts to them, as UPS doesn't actually perform deliveries there, the only problem is getting them to hand packages over to Purolator to actually be delivered.

It's always interesting to see which delivery companies work best in different places. For me, UPS is my most trusted provider, with USPS and FedEx neck-and-neck for second (unless it's going to Chicago, where I wouldn't trust USPS). And I wouldn't trust DHL with dog food.

 

But after this odyssey, I'd never consider using UPS to ship to Canada.

I was lucky to get my Vampire package without any problems. One of my friends wasn't as lucky when his tracking number confirmed it was delivered but had nothing to show for it. He managed to track the UPS truck and found that it got delivered to the wrong appartment building. Took a few days to sort out.

 

Personnaly, when I order something from the US, I also check the shipping company. If it's UPS, I look elsewhere. Cross border are often way too much trouble for whatever savings are possible.

      Because we need more badelf fighting ladies.

      Kev White, the sculptor, seems to have paid attention during "The First Avenger." Great uniform details. But I've already got the muscular and dynamic Zenith (50080) in that role, so I went with our neighbors to the North. The shield is, again, my addition. 

       
      More angles: 

      Superhero team-up time! 

       
      And another mission (feat. Dirk Goodspeed, 50195, and Sasquatch, 50011).

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
