[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Curious what 'Package departed international carrier facility' means actually. I cannot believe that this did not get flagged by customs.

In my mind, this means it left UPS international shipping facilities for USPS international shipping facilities.

 

Basically, they shipped everything to the building next door near the same airport.

 

What happens next is one of life's mysteries, but I think we can start shifting our divine wrath at all this incessant waiting as we curse them and their families eager expectations from UPS to USPS.

I don't think they'll skip customs for me, with 2 boxes coming my way :)

 

Probably not the largest order, but I hope an honorable mention with 36.9 LBS (29.6 LBS + 7.3 LBS) coming my way.

I did order some of the large mini's for friends as well, so that could explain it (a little bit)

It's shipped and targeted for Wednesday delivery! O happy days! Thank you Reaper!  :wub:

 

Now to figure out how to get it into the house without eliciting comments from my housemates. What? More minis? You haven't finished painting what you already have!

Answer: You know, if you guys would pick up the hobby as well they'd likely all be painted by now...  Or at least you wouldn't be complaining.

You will just have to explain to them how miniature painting works ! The more unpainted minis you have the more likely you are to find one that motivates you enough to paint  right now. So a large stockpile of unpainted minis is essential to this hobby ! ;-)

You know, I have a random question if a Reaper folk happens to stop by.

 

I have an order (Non KS, *gasp*) that's sitting at fulfilled but no tracking number or email.  Has KS fulfillment hung up the rest of the system, or just stolen all the tracking numbers?  :P

 

Note, I'm not griping, considered it was ordered late last week and it's just as likely going to go out today and make this post wasted.  If it doesn't ship until after fulfillment, I'll enjoy watching my Wave 10 shipment race it to me.

I've had this issue before, it may have already been shipped and be on its way to you, especially if your address is nonstandard. I had an order going to my ship back during th3 ghoulie bag promotion that was still showing as awaiting shipping three weeks later, when it was sitting in a mail bag in the purser's office. ::D:

Just remember that even if it's safe for you to drive on the roads, it might not be safe to drive on the roads with other drivers who are fishtailing around.

 

Be safe.

 

(Easy for me to say since I already got my pledge.)

Well, I haven't gotten mine, I have no idea if it's been packed yet, and I'd rather y'all stay home and be safe from people who don't know how to drive in snow/ice conditions (of if you don't know how to drive in them yourself), than risk it just to pack more boxes. They're just toys, they can wait! Not worth your lives/health! ::o:

Four more people locked in in the meantime.

We kind of hoped this would happen. That is up to eighteen more at this point.

 

Our predicted incliment weather has closed the shop today. Some of us are planning on trying the roads later but at this point, I don't expect much movement on the tracker today.

 

ETA while typing, three more locked in...

 

 

What!?  You mean you didn't lock some of the weekend packing monkeys in for this occasion? :P

 

Stay safe please!

FireElemental and I had about 40 pounds of minis across two boxes, but that's like cheating since there's two of us.

 

Adept Legacy might be in the running if he has three boxes. Got a total weight for us, Adept?

Mine is going from Texas to Boston and the last message I got was leaving Dallas on the 19th.  Domestic tracking isn't so much more wonderful.

      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.

      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.
