[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Got the update today that instead of being delivered today the bones will (maybe) be delivered on Friday. A full week to make it from TX to FL. But that's UPS for ya, slow and expensive.

Looking at mine (TX to Tampa, so we're likely sharing the same truck), it didn't actually leave Dallas until last night, 8:11PM local.  The drivers out there probably aren't used to snow and didn't even come in until Monday late.

 

But yeah, I was really hoping it'd show up today, like the site said up until late last night..  :down:

I'm guessing the snow down there has wreaked all sorts of havoc...I doubt they're equipped to handle it the same way those of us who get snow every year are.  Mine got its 'Departure Scan' [aka it's going on a truck now, it'll pull out later today] Sunday, and I just 20 minutes ago got the 'Adverse weather has caused a delay' message, a full day after it was supposed to be delivered...it's not yet left Dallas.  Given that it's going to my place of employment, I'll probably have it monday.

 

But, I have to look at the bright side.  They at least know where my box is!  That's far better than the news they gave me last night...

So many Bones!!

All packages present and accounted for (thanks for the awesome packing job Katie!!!).

I've started going through everything, starting with the BIG stuff and working down through the bags of add-ons.  Didn't even make it through all of those, and it's bed time.

And I haven't even looked at cores or expansions yet......

I got my Bones yesterday, great work Reaper.

 

I am surprised by the variety of plastic types. Some are very rigid and others pretty flimsy. Iverall I am very happy. cinder is just amazing.

 

The best part of reviewing the minis was having my oldest daughter (5) pointing at every second fig and asking "can I have that one" or "can I paint that one" or "can I use that one with my army". I should clarify she doesn't play a game yet but she knows I play games with armies and I told her I would teach her one.

I got mine on Tuesday - took the afternoon off work to play with sort through them.  Everything seems intact, and I finally decided on my first "mini" to paint when the painting bug bites me again... Kraken.

      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.
