[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Got my Bones II today.  They all look great but I am missing a right arm on 1 fig.  Any way I can get an arm for the below fig?

 

Thanks,

 

You'll have to be patient (since they are still in full shipping mode and are dealing with bad weather now) and email them: [email protected]

 

Or... you can make it a feature rather than a flaw and paint it up with a missing stub with appropriately bloody basing (this is what I'd personally do).  :devil:

This is why you are ub3r!   I would just toss him to the side and not even worry about bothering them since the deal on all these minis was so great. If I had to have him I would just buy another once they were out on shelves.  Never would I have thought "hmm let me sculpt a stub and make it look like he lost his arm in battle."  Even after learning about the awesomeness of the green stuff in Rhonda's class last year I would just ignore that guy instead of making something cool out of it.

 

(and this is why I love the forums and this community)

My package arrived!!. Now I need to carefully open it and carefully excise DDS2... Wow it takes up the whole bottom of the box... this could look suspicious... also now I kind of want my wife to see it at the bottom of the box rather than waiting till next week. Next week is the 10th anniversary  of our first date and I was going to give it to her then (was going to stash it in my closet). What does everybody else think. give it to her now or later?

 

 

Always stick with the first plan.

 

Stay on target…

 

 

Thanks I will. Just needed someone else to say it to reinforce my decision (She is going to squee very, very hard).

Take it all out, wrap DDS2, re-pack with DDS2 back on the bottom, reseal the box, then hide it until next week and open it with her.

Surprise DDS2 - that's love. Having your bones for a whole week and not playing with them - That's Tru Luvv Farm Boy!!

 

Wouldn't work, she knows it is coming today, and I work at the UPS center here so I won't be able to fiegn ignorance of it's wherabouts very easily. Plus she has stuff she knows is coming in that box, and I don't want to deny her that.

 

Also: Farm boy? I'll have you know, that just because I have never lived outside of a cop dodging distance of a cornfield does not make me a farmer. It just makes the vast majprity of my relatives and wife's relatives farmers. I would never deign to call myself such. I haven't earned that right. ^_^

Wouldn't work, she knows it is coming today, and I work at the UPS center here so I won't be able to fiegn ignorance of it's wherabouts very easily. Plus she has stuff she knows is coming in that box, and I don't want to deny her that.

 

Couldn't you just open the box upside-down, remove DDS2, reseal it, and flip it back over?

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.

 

Wow, even the server is staying in because of the snow day.

 

That's some kind of weather!

See? That's why you should put pictures up instead of words.  He obviously thought 'Server Room' meant 'Pro Paint Storage'.     I blame the educational system in the goblin caves.

 

Buglips is obviously a blue goblin.

 

Only if you hold him in ice cold water long enough.

 

If you hold him under ice cold water, he'll be purple too!

 

But I heard a nasty rumour that goblins' aversion to water is so great that they float like a cork stopper.

 

It's a good thing too. Last thing I need is goblins in my water supply.

Oh I had no problem removing DDS from the box and resealing it. The problem would be hiding the whole Bones 2 box As Stephen suggested. She has stuff she is expecting in that box so I won't hide it from her. I'm just hiding DDS2 which she is not expecting. (Also remembered to hide the packing list. it would appear that Bryan packed my bones 2)

The important thing to remember is that underneath the blue woad he paints himself with for server raids, he's actually a tangerine goblin.

Yeah, blues are smart.

      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!
