[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave


Recommended Posts

You really can't fight it. It is several costs together.

 

First it is administrative costs (usually about 20E), then it is taxes over the contents, then it is taxes over the shipping. It seems a bit high, but it is unlikely that it is 'wrong'.

 

They really are just trying to discourage people from shipping for personal use from out of the EU. :( It's not cool at all, I know.

Did call bpost - belgian post - and was able to request a recalculation - did note to the other person on the line that those were in fact 2 boxes for 1 invoice.

Administrative costs are 30€ in Belgium, so that's 60€ for both packages.

Still, 350€ on 920€ (actual order and shipping added) is still steep - that would be 193€ VAT (21% in Belgium)

 

My guess is that they calculated the VAT on the second package for my whole order, seeing that it's 222,62€ (192,62+30) fee for the small box, and 194,12€ (164,12+30) for the big box.

 

I'll know the result in about 2 weeks - 1 day for the recalculation, the rest for some international controlling mechanism afaik.

i had that for Bones 1. The order was split up in 2 boxes but both boxes were labeled for the full pledge amount.

Luckily at the time Reaper gave the order a basic Vampire value of $100 instead of the real pledge total.

Wave 1 UK here:  I got my snail mail letter from the Royal Mail today.  £96 in duty, VAT and fees on my $520 pledge (minor ouch).  Most of that is 20% VAT (£72) but that is a little duty (£16) .  I could argue that most of the bones are "non human plastic figurines" which don't attract duty in the UK as opposed to "human plastic figurines" which do but then we get into the arguments of "that one isn't human, she has pointy ears so is an elf."

I can can confirm that my Wave 1 ROW (Canada) showed up yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to do more than check and see if the items that were on the slips were in the box.  All good on that front.  Detailed inventory will have to wait for the weekend.  But I did get a chance to dry-fit Khanjira, just to check of course, and see how he compares to both the PCs and Cthulhu.  Result: ::D:

You're right; both the packages had the same label attached to it, saying they contain 846.23$ .

I told the guy on the phone that they were for 1 invoice, so I hope they keep that into account :(

Well, yay...Oops has updated my tracking information from 'scheduled to arrive yesterday' to 'We have no idea.  We'll get around to it, maybe, eventually, we think?'.  Given that there's no scan logs since leaving Texas, until they give me information otherwise I'm assuming either it's at a snowed-in shipping hub, or they managed to lose it.

Woot! My regularly scheduled day off and my KS2 arrived.  Now if I can just calm down enough to get back to my regularly scheduled painting.  Yeah, like I'm not gonna open all the boxes and bags and rub my hands in excitement of all the miniatures i'll probably never get to.

      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.

      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.
