[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Just hand it to her as an early surprise birthday gift. No sense being sneaky.

 

Your words don't make sense when you put them together like that.  Being sneaky is half the fun!!  ^_^

The weather has been dangerously icy in the Reaper area. They haven't been able to get many people in to work.

Oh I know pongo, the mathematician in me is just coming out they did several hundred on Friday like 70 on Saturday another hundred on Monday today was 300 plus we were already down the row orders from wave 5 so I'm guessing that leaves like maybe 600 or so of wave 5?

 

the reaper people have done a great job considering the conditions

to complicate things you'll need to factor in the ones that just locked their pledge in, at the start of each day there are a number of shipments from earlier waves, but i just dont know how many exactly...

 

 

on a happier note, i just got the email with my tracking info :-)

according to our numbers less than 300 remain in W5. If we have a similar size crew tomorrow we should hit W6 by end of day. Obviously if larger crew, sooner. We really want to get back to those 1000+ days...

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. ^_^

 

 

Obscure Princess Bride reference. Gotta keep reminding you young people of the classics! :-)

Being sneaky, is a part of the fun. Trust me, it makes the reaction that much better.

It was mentioned earlier in the thread somewhere to send the emails after fulfillment. Let me see if I can find the quote.

 

--- edit ---

Found it, but her problem is a little different from yours. XD

 

Wait until post fulfillment.

 

If I have a second pledge in Wave 10, and something was missing from my Wave 1 pledge, would it be easier to ask Reaper to add the missing item to my Wave 10 pledge, or for you to just ship the missing item on its own after the main fulfillment is done?

 

Huzzah!

Still waiting for my Wave 2 shipment to arrive to Toronto. Getting frustrated that the UPS update has shown received at Canada Post since Feb 19th, with no movement since, or valid tracking number that can be used with Canada Post.

I put drops of paint on the tops of all my bottles but three that wouldn't come out.. guessing those need the pokey stick..  I did have some spurt out like a shaken soda bottle when i removed the cap after shaking to mix.. I've never had that happen before..

I've had the lava effect happen a few times back when I was trying out Vallejo. It was one of the reasons I stopped using them.

Don't think I've ever had it happen with a Reaper bottle though.

Possible that the cap wasn't fully closed/sealed while in air-transit, and the bottle repressurized.  Shaking it before opening put high pressure air under the paint.

 

Possible Solution: Open all paint before shaking, close, then shake.

      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?"

      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.
