[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

 

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.]

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

:;):

 

yeah my order still reads Bensenville or w/e it's called. I am having a hard time understanding why it has been sitting there since the 19th.

RoW1 (Australia) here.  Still waiting.  Nervously.   I say nervously because I'm moving house in two weeks time.  On Reaper's advice, I had it shipped to a friend instead.   Only to now find out my friend is moving house at the same time I am.   So really hoping it arrives in the next two weeks!!

 

Anyway, tracker says:

Australia 02/19/2015 11:26 A.M. Shipment Acceptance at international carrier Bensenville, IL, United States 02/18/2015 1:35 P.M. Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations

 

Not sure I believe that the top entry really means it is in Australia.   If the date/time is indeed "local" as it says, there's only about a 5 hour time difference between the two entries, not enough for a flight to Australia.   I think maybe that top entry means it has arrived at the carrier that is shipping it to Australia.   But that was 5 days ago.  Hope it's here now, maybe in customs.

Mines sitting at "Package arrived at foreign customs office" as of Monday... I'm hoping customs lasts less than a week... but we'll see.

My Bones box arrived yesterday!!!!   It was delayed a bit by inclement weather but it arrived safely.  WHOOO-HOOO!!!    going through that box was so much fun.  Thanks to the Reaper team, the order was BETTER than expected. I got an extra Cinder dragon and a mixed bag of bases!  Now I have to decide what to work on first.

Snow and ice kept the reset button gnomes at home.

 

 

Send in the Buglips!

He's half the reason they can't work today, he's clogging up the air vents and keeping warm air from circulating through the factory. :lol:

Hang in there, Texas!  We have sympathy here in NC.  The ground is strangely white.  What is this odd cold stuff falling? :blink:

After nearly a week of silence from UPs, my box is in Massachussets!  Woot.  Should be in my hands tomorrow.  Then I can get scolded by my wife for having way too many.

      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!
