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 :-)

I'm curious how much of wave five might be left since it's been kind of nickel and dimeing over the past 4 days little bit Friday a little bit Saturday little bit Monday a little bit today...

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! :-)

 

It has been a lomg time since I swa that movie. Too long.

 

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

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

Just recived mine today.  I'm still going though it, but I only found one miss cast, and one of the Bugbears is missing his head.  Once I'm done I'll send reaper a quck e-mail.reguarding those two. 

 

Wave 4

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!

--OneBoot :D

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.

      Goblins!
      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

       
      Goblin Command (77349)
      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

       
      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
       
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      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.
