[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

While not Bones related, I can relate to shipping woes. I'm a state away from Paizo, (well kinda, they above me lets put it that way). My latest Pathfinder Adventure Path (the 1st one in the Gaints AP) got shipped to Salt Lake City by USPS for some reason.....

 

Paizo is sending me a new one but it'll piggy back with the 2nd book, which means close to anther month to wait.....aghhhhh & I love getting the first issues!!!

 

Hang in there everyone, you'll get your stuff!!!  ::):

The silence between UPS and USPS is really the worst.

 

A lot of us RoW have literally no way of knowing where our packages are. UPS's tracking number shows that it's out of their hands, but with the total absence of information from USPS or our respective national carriers, the packages could be on their way, in customs, lost at sea, hijacked by aliens, etc.

 

And there's not a bloody thing anyone can do. Not even Reaper, despite their awesomeness. (Or can they? :blink: )

I got my second package (wave 2) and my box was signed!!!!  :wub:::D:

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

 

More white stuff coming tomorrow too for NC.

Bummer. It sucks when you go through the trouble to set up remote connections and your server just sits there like <Fat Tony>What's an Internet</Fat Tony>.

Don't remind us, the state was shut down most of last week because of an ice storm, this week is 3+ inches of snow, all on a state that gets snow maybe once a year and usually under an inch.

Just got my shipping notice too.  I received my box last week.....

Ten days ago for me. ^_^ But surely this means they're sending me another one, right? Right?

 

:lol:

Seems the tracker didn't reset to zero at midnight.

It was supposed to but we had a problem with our servers and couldn't fix them remotely. It had to wait until one of us could get in and reset the system that had locked up.

 

It's working as intended now.

 

The servers froze? 

 

Someone left the doors open?

I'm wave 10 so waiting another week or so does not bother me. I live in Michigan so I know how the roads can get when the snow/temp falls. Keep those reaper folks safe. My box will so up when it gets here.

      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!
