My delivery notice was waiting for me when I got off work today.  Got back from the post office a bit back with a BIG box of gear.  Christ, I don't know when I'll get around to painting all of this . . .

My ups just updated. Now scheduled for friday.

 

My 3 "wave 10" orders also just got a "rescheduled" notice for Friday the 6th too, but the tracker still doesn't show that UPS has scanned them even once. All still have the status "Ready for UPS".   *shakes fist* UPSSSSSSSSSSSSS *shakes fist*

Everything's been picked up. 

 

Button the ~430 not-locked-in pledges, we have managed to get over 200 of these locked in so far this week, and tomorrow we will ship the ~250 or so that are locked in as of tomorrow morning. 

 

The next challenge is reaching the final ~170 or so.  We only have e-mail addresses, and so far 5 total e-mails to them has not worked, so we're low on options.

Refund them with a message 'Unable to contact and verify pledge' and then sell their stuff to us? :D

 

Seriously thought: Can you cross-reference the emails to your standard store database, see how many of them have ordered from you guys previously?  Maybe snail-mail a 'This is your LAST CHANCE TO KICKSTART!' message?  Or is that too Publisher Clearinghouse for you?  (Yeah, I didn't stay serious for the entire thought.  Sorry!)

Friday is my wife's and my anniversary, so I just got on the UPS site and had them deliver to the UPS store near my house so that the box isn't sitting around outside. I'll probably end up picking it up Monday. No biggie as I have 20 miniatures to paint  :rolleyes:

It makes me happy that you're down to that few. Not sure why it should matter to me but it does.

Go my 10 lbs box today! I'm in Canada (Québec), and for my order of about 250$ USD (201$ on declaration on the box though), I had to pay 47$ and some change for custom fee.

 

But with the figures in hand, I'm quite happy! Lots of good stuff, and couldn't resist to dry fit some figures!

I've gone through my shipment and one $10 option is absent from my order, along with 4-5 miniatures that are missing parts.  No too bad, given the size of my order and the scale of the KS.  I've sent a message out to Reaper with all the particulars.

Damn, I'm seriously not happy.

I can go pick up my bones at the local post, but I also know what I have to pay to get them.

 

416,74€ on an order of 846$ + 182.55$ shipping!

 

It's like they calculated VAT for the whole kickstarter for both my boxes!

 

Anyone knows if it's possible to fight this? And how? Country : Belgium (our VAT should be 21%).

 

I haven't seen the details of the bill yet, so this is guessing, but man...

If it works anything like the dutch one, once you go over a certain amount it goes over the "for personal use" and becomes "business use" which can add another % to it. :(

      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.

      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.
