[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

 

 

Maybe I will post a sticker that says "WE'RE HOME ALL THE TIME. RING THE BELL"

 

 

THIS. I actually do post DELIVERIES PLEASE RING THE DOORBELL sign when I am waiting on something. Then I sit at the window like a puppy, with the window open so I can sign right then and there because I still don't trust them.

Slightly but only slightly off-topic: what the crap, Reaper folks?

 

I put in an order on the 19th. FireElemental reports it arrived today.

 

The shipping notice hasn't even made it to my email address yet. It's a good three or four days faster than your normal turnaround. And you're doing this while shipping Bones? That's insane. Insane! I hope you sleep sometimes.

 

(Also: thank you.)

They're awesome.  Hope my order from the 19th shows up tomorrow!  (And I won't be disappointed if it doesn't.  Promise.  Rest, sleep, eat, Reaper peeps)

Sooooo, any RoW got their package yet?

 

I know I'm being unreasonably hopeful concerning Canada Customs, but I'm a dreamer.

 

[Note to self: Find better dreams than Canada Customs. That's really depressing.]

If that's your dream, at least you know you're getting enough sleep.

We've left for the night. The water on the roads has almost finished re-freezing and it was worse driving home (where I am now) than it was driving in this morning.

 

We did get waybills on all of today's and Saturday's parcels, and we still think we can finish in 4 days - but there is the new possibility that tomorrow will be a "snow day" as well, meaning we may not finish by Friday as once predicted.

 

There is a simple and obvious answer - robots!

You should have some awesome-cool-robots to do the actual picking while you sit at home with a VR helmet and some gloves with lots of LEDs and wires remotely controlling the robots.

This is an issue of staff safety, budget should not even come into it. That it is only required 2 or 3 days every year is immaterial.

 

M: "Byran, why did you add 10 DDS2 to that order?"

B: "My kids were trying to change the TV channel by pressing buttons on my VR glove."

Smallest order I have seen: 1 set of mouslings.

 

Largest: With a limit of ten I saw an odrer with 10 core and multiple of everything else go out so far.... I smell ebay reseller!

Updates haven't changed for my order in several days, so I'm guessing/blaming Canada Customs.

@Cranky Dog.. Also waiting for RoW wave 1 to Canada.  My package was a lightweight compared to what many of these other guys have at 14.5lbs, but like you, I assume it will be sitting in Canada Customs for at least a week once USPS manages to get it there.  (According to the tracking info, they haven't yet).

      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.

      The bimonthly resolutionary challenge in the Reaper forums is to get about 4-5 minis painted each month, and also there are some bonus challenges. This February, like last year, one of the bonus challenges is to paint a minature with your fingers. No brushes allowed. And no fingers of other, smaller people either. And it needs to be a creature, not scenery.
      Challenge accepted. Again.
      Last year I fingerpainted this:

      77368 Shadow Demon
       
      This year, I am doing this:
       

       
      The Bones 2 “77372 Burrowing Horror”. Basically a teeny tiny Tarrasque. Technically I probably should have done the primer with my fingers as well, but seeing as it was undercoated by spraycan many moons ago, there have not been any brushes on it. So there.
      In preparation for this, I have let my fingernails grow a couple of weeks…since my fingertips are way to big to get at any details at all…but a fingernail, both edge and torn, does the trick!
       

      These are the colours I used for this. I picked them as I went along, only having a vague idea of how this was going to end up.
      The miniature was baseless, so I made a base for it:

      Bespoke 3D printed 80 x 55 mm oval lipped base.
       
      Starting by dipping my finger in a pool of Scalecolor Heavy Metal (=midtone silver) I wiped the finger a bit and “drybrushed” the whole model with a movement from front to back on the model. A few goes at this covered nicely:
       

       
      This was followed by a highlight of Army Painter Shining Silver on the ridges and main plated of the head and tail, taking care to not cover up all the Heavy Metal.
       

       
      After that, some Vallejo Game Color Glorious Gold on the claws

       
      I mixed some heavy metal with the gold to create a highlight color, which I dabbed on the tips of the claws. I also tried to do the teeth in gold with the edge of a fingernail, but this did not turn out too well.
       
      Tearing a fingernail, I used the point to paint the teeth individually, and also did the eyes in Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue, highlighted with a small dot of ancient Hobby Game Products Blue 005. The nail broke off, and I had to tear me a new one.


       
      This I then used to clean up some areas with black lining and fixing bits I had missed or slopped the wrong color on.

       
      I finished with some blobs of Vallejo Green Ink on the sides and underneath.
      Then I had to fix all the spots of green that had gotten where they should not be.
      And then I had to fix all the metal that had rubbed off here and there with my handling of the mini.
       
      The base:
       

       
      A thick layer of Army Painter Walking Dead Dirt Spatter, followed by Reaper Pure Black on the rim.
      After this was dry, I marked where the feet would be by dabbing some lighter brown on the soles of the feet and holding it to the base. This was followed by a globbing on of thinned down PVA woodworking glue to the base surface with my finger again. A couple of tufts were added straight into the wet glue and then I dipped the whole shebang in my box of flockmix.
      Gently clearing flock from where the feet were to go, I put some superglue in the general areas and placed the miniature on the base, and it was done:
       

       

       

       

       

       
      Painted by hand. In the most literal sense.
       
      All in all, a fun couple of hours of getting messy fingers.  Mostly waiting for the paint to dry whilst frantically wiping at my tacky paws to get the paint off.
      And at last I got to cut my fingernails down to their proper place again! Cardboard boxes being the sworn enemy of fingernails, they caused a couple of casualties at work today.

      Howdy,
       
           For my ninth day of International Mini Painting Month I present Sister Maria from the Chronoscope Bones...
       


       
      Guns are not my fantasy...
      So I gave her Seoni's Staff... (89006: Seoni, Iconic Sorceress)
      and painted her as a Druid,
       
      Kev!
