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)

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."

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.]

NZ wave 3, no Bones yet. Still seem to be with NZ Customs. Edited by Laoke

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).

      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.
