There are a ton of RoW orders currently either parked in Bensenville, or that just haven't had their status updated to indicate that they've left.  You should be able to contact UPS on the issue though, or at least find someone who will give you a status update.  If you do, report back.

The archer in DDS2 may be my favorite one ever. Given that it's a Klocke I hope I'm skillful enough to paint it. a metal version would be awesome

 

Metal version of all the DDS2 adventurers would be an even better option (yes I'm still a metalhead when it comes to human size figures)

 

 

HEY HEY!!! Just got done with my Supershuttle after RCon reserv' & lo & behold I've got a Bones 2 email from Reaper. Thanks!!

I would be fine with it if it said the "International carrier" thing on mine. That means it's on the way and out of UPS' hands, and I know I might have to wait a few weeks to get a message from customs.

As of now it looks like lots of packages are just sitting there though. If that's correct (i.e mine has been that way since the 19th) that's not ok at all.

They've done metal versions of several Bones-original human sized figures (the archmage with familiar and the two new barbarians, for example). It's more likely to be SOON than soon, but I'll not be surprised to see them.

Question - and sorry if this has been asked and answered, but I haven't had luck finding it...

 

I pledged AFTER the Kickstarter ended.  My order says I am Wave 10.  Am I included in the Reaper countdown?  Or will my order be shipped at a later time?

 

Thanks!

As long as you got your pledge locked in on the pledge manager, you are in this counter. It will be shipped according to lock-in date within that wave.

 

Reaper sent out emails and put out updates to show how to check if you are locked in, so if you aren't sure, go take a look at their updates and look on your pledge manager.

Got the letter from the Royal Mail this morning: £54 Import duty/VAT and £8 for the letter itself! No change on the UPS tracking page. I wonder if it will update when I pick up the box. I was wave 3. So given that the goods must have arrived at least a day before the letter arrived I'd imagine we'll see a lot of deliveries soon.

I wonder if you input the tracking # into the Royal Mail web tracker if it'll be much more up to date?

Yeah, I would have definitely loved to have that option. Much of my impatience is tied directly to the WTFness of the tracker showing it just sitting there in Bensenville. If it even just said "handed to USPS" or something I'd be less irritated. What's bugging me out is the thought that it may just be sitting there in Illinois doing nothing?

 

I think that's the part that bugs me the most as well... If there was a reason, IE if the news was talking about how chicago is completely covered in snow, and everything had been shut down for the past week. sure, sitting in bensenville would be fine... but UPS hasn't even said anything about inclement weather in the chicago area on their website. so stuff should be moving.

 

Chicago is completely covered in snow and O'Hare Airport has been shutting down flights.

I'm old enough that I still think in terms of please wait 4-6 weeks for delivery. Got into trouble once when someone never shipped what I ordered and I waited too long to file a complaint. At least it was only $40 lost. I keep checking the tracking number but never really thought it would update again until I get the package.

I had a similar experience, only worsened by the fact that they had USPS shipping software that gave me the tracking number before the order was even pulled. 3 weeks after I called them direct to find out what was going on. They fed me some line about warehouse problems but it was the last time I took an error with a tracking number as a "oh well, I'm sure it will show up."

Shipment progress update, package is at Canadian Customs since the 23rd. Can't say if has been released since, there seems to have a 2-4 days lag on the info

Exactly what my tracking updated to today.

 

People all around my area have already been reporting that they've received their shipments, so I'm hoping mine will show up soon.

      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!
