[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave


Recommended Posts

 

 

I have been told that sometimes ParcelForce (is that right, I admit to being unfamiliar with this) recognizes the tracking. This was from a tweet sent by one of our UK backers, so I have no quotable source.

 

Nop. The response was:

Please review the information below
  • Parcelforce Worldwide parcel tracking reference numbers are either 9, 13 or 14 characters with no spaces. Please check and re-enter.

And the UPS tracking code uses 18.

::):

 

ParcelForce would apply only to UK backers, although as before, I'm not 100% sure how accurate the tweet was.

 

I'm fairly sure, Naponatom, the your parcel will not be delivered via UK's Parcelforce, since you live in Brazil.

 

One can hope... :wow:

 

But if I could, I´ll be receiving my parcel in Norway!   :bday:

 

Edit: because english.

After many days trapped in Bensenville, and still more days held hostage by customs, I am pleased to report my bones have arrived (ROW wave 6). With so much goodness overflowing from this box of fun, I don't even know how to go about cataloging them to see if anything is missing... so far the only issue I've noticed is one of my demons has two right claws...

 

Anyway! Fantastic job reaper team! And a special thank you to Ladystorm for pulling my order.

Got 'em. And I am loving Khanjira and DDSII. All the figures are nice of course, but those two made the order. Everything is excellent in fit and finish, hardly any warping at all. I don't know who 12701 is, but that person did an excellent job packing, no discrepancies at all. Bravo zulu Reaper.

So my Wave 10 box arrived today. With just a Kraken and a bag of bases missing I decided to take photos and catalog the three core expansions, just to make sure I had no missing bits, and I don't, yay!

 

Also showing off the figure case.

 

This is two bags worth of small bases, one medium, and one large.

 

Will be looking over and taking pics of everything else over the next few days.

I was surprised to find 9(!!) Kulathi, I thought there would only be 3.

 

I've found boiling to be very effective at straightening this new stiffer bonbesium. My calidrith sits really well after a dunk.

 

Eta: with so many models unassembled, which is fine, why oh why are the riders in expansion 1 glued to their saddles! Even if you didn't want to paint them they would dry fit just fine, and painting will require separating them somehow. They are otherwise awesome.

Got my box yesterday, had time to open it this evening!

 

Shiny shiny Bones, everything complete and in order.

 

First miniature painted will probably be the big Rat Ogre from Oh, Rats, as he'll fit beautifully into a ratmen (ahem, Skaven...) Bloodbowl team I'm going to be using soon.

 

Cool figures all around, nicely done Reaper.

Only things I'm missing are all the bases

 

Got mine yesterday and everything is accounted for except for the bag of bases. I had three orders in the last wave and I'm guessing they were just flying by so fast it got missed.

Bowser is currently sitting on my painting table, along with the three toadstool men.  And the little turtle dude.  I'm planning a 'Where's your Mario now?' scene.

Re: Tracking to the UK.  The UPS number doesn't work on the Parcelforce site and, as people have found, the UPS tracker is patchy and slow to update.  Once I got my letter to pay the fees, there was a Parcelforce number in the letter and I could track from then on and also get a much more detailed view of the previous travels of my Bones.  The good news for UK backers is that once the letter arrives, delivery is next working day if you pay the fees online.

My Bones arrived today (ROW wave 1).  It looks like Shannon did a flawless job picking my order.  And having spent the afternoon inventorifying (that is totally a word!) them I have not discovered any errors at all.  Good job Reaper.

Well after phone Parcel Force yesterday and them denying they had a parcel for me low and behold the letter arrived today. Good job the nearest depot is only 30mins away so I made a family trip out to collect them. All the main items are present, I have yet to go through the core set and expansions in detail, but my two sons are playing with the other models. In particular the DDS 2 castle.

 

The models are well worth the wait. I will post a proper update once the two monsters have gone to bed tonight.

Got the duties and VAT letter today. Paid it online and the package should be delivered the next working day (so I'm guessing Monday), so what TheHetman says above for the UK is true for Denmark also. Got a working tracking number too (although it's kind of moot, since it'll be delivered very shortly, but it actually shows information back to the US).

$433 in total for duties, VAT and handling fee...

 

Talked briefly to my friend who has received his already. He didn't find any missing parts, although he did say something about a few miscasts (missing fingers and such small detail).

      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.
