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.

      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.

      Goblin Warriors (77444)
      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?"

      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.
