[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.

      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.
