[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.

      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!
