So my pacakge is at NL customs, but the UPS MI tracker cannot be converted to a Dutch track and trace number. Only USPS numbers can, and I haven't figured out how to do a UPS MI -> USPS number conversion.

 

Oh well, guess I'll have to wait for the postal service to come round the first time to tell me how much I owe them, and then the second time to pay it ;p

It hit me last night that I had logged in to the pledge manager with a different email last year some time. I did not purchase anything with that account, so had forgotten about it.

 

With the latest update I thought I should check and see what state the account was in. I logged in last night and it was sitting with a Core Set and the ability to add more at slightly more than Kickstarter prices.

 

I toyed around with it adding and subtracting things and then took it to the payment screen. It seemed like I could actually still go through with another order. I chose to clear my pledged items to $0 and sleep on it before closong the pledge with nothing - planning to post here about it in the morning.

 

When I log back in now it gives a message that says something like they aren't taking new orders.

 

I figure this is a data point possibly worth checking into with open pledges. If they are from after the KS and have added no funds yet, the pledge is likely still unlocked, but there has been no money spent so people might not be planning to spend it.

Finally a RealTM update from UPS.
 
Canada 02/20/2015 6:59 P.M. Package departed international carrier facility
Canada 02/19/2015 3:25 P.M. Shipment Acceptance at international carrier
Bensenville, IL, United States 02/19/2015 12:26 P.M. Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations

 
In my mind, this means it left O'Hare airport's facilities for Canada (probably Toronto) and is in USPS's hands for the switch to Canada Post.
 
 
...and then Saturday happened.
 

Edit: Didn't notice my copy/paste formatting from UPS's page was screwed up.

We just got back home this evening from our wedding anniversary dinner (twenty-two years ago today). Out front my husband found a large package and said, "I think this is your Bones Kickstarter. It says 'Hi, Pingo! Bryan' on it."

 

See y'all later!

I now keep a sharpie in my pocket in case the order I'm handling has a name I recognize. I didn't do that the first few days and missed signing Miss Melons and Corporea.

 

I have a Ladystorm sig on one of my christmas boxes!

If your login did not have a KS Pledge associated with it we are no longer allowing those logins to lock in. The window of opportunity for late joiners has ended.

The 521 referenced earlier of unlocked-strays is people with valid KS pledges associated with their login.

 

EDIT TO ADD: It's down to 473, so we're getting through to people...

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
       

      As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames.  I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
      This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
      At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
       

      What is this sorcery?! 
      Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

      Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo.

      Here is my Kanjira. The pose of the monster made me think it could be a good idea too make it emerge through the Trees. A vision of Knightmare, for sure.

      Also did a quick speed paint of two statues. Not sure were the other column is at the moment, but this one was out while I was painting the angel of death so it got paint too.

      She fit very snuggly into that base. I'm debating whether or not she'll stay in it.


       



       

      The pair. Also the angel without the base.
