My Bones II KS arrived today. That's a lot of stuff, what the hell was I thinking?!? :blink:

 

Thank you very much! See you the next one! ^_^

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.

I knew Parcelforce was involved somehow, but because of the shortness of the tweet, was unsure how precisely. Thanks for the clarification.

i think my concrete grey froze.. the pigment doesn't seem to want to recombine with the medium very well.. it comes out really watery.. i tried using a sculpting tool to break up the medium and added an agitator but it only seemed to help a small bit..

I haz Bones!

My (our) package was too large to fit into the package station, so I had to pick it up at the post office instead. They had placed it on a roller board, so the girls there didn't have to lift it. :poke:

I've included some pics, two of the package itself and one of almost all of the content (one of my friends had taken his share, so the picture is missing 1 core set, 1 Narthrax, 1 Oh (Aww?) Rats, 1 Blightfang, 1 Cinder and both paint sets).

Now I just have to see when I can get the time to go through everything to see if each package is missing anything. Everything we pledged for is there, though!

Oh, question: Where do people see who picked their orders? The box itself only contained the signed Thank You note. It might be on one of the printed stickers on the box itself, but those are mostly covered by other stickers put there by the customs office or the postal service.

Loose inside the box there should be an inventory printed on reciept paper which has the name of the picker on the bottom.

Didn't get one of those. Maybe the customs office took it out and didn't put it back again.

That means no-one packed your Bones, they got there by themselves.... get out of the house now!

Mine came in and I'm very impressed with the new formula the larger models seem to be using.  My son couldn't keep his hands off of Kanjira to save his life, haha.

And I thought waiting for the box to arrive was bad, now it's sitting there...tempting me...and I can't touch it until after work...

I didn't get one either. I was checking against the pledge manager and KS pictures. Didn't think about a packing list until much later.

      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.

      The bimonthly resolutionary challenge in the Reaper forums is to get about 4-5 minis painted each month, and also there are some bonus challenges. This February, like last year, one of the bonus challenges is to paint a minature with your fingers. No brushes allowed. And no fingers of other, smaller people either. And it needs to be a creature, not scenery.
      Challenge accepted. Again.
      Last year I fingerpainted this:

      77368 Shadow Demon
       
      This year, I am doing this:
       

       
      The Bones 2 “77372 Burrowing Horror”. Basically a teeny tiny Tarrasque. Technically I probably should have done the primer with my fingers as well, but seeing as it was undercoated by spraycan many moons ago, there have not been any brushes on it. So there.
      In preparation for this, I have let my fingernails grow a couple of weeks…since my fingertips are way to big to get at any details at all…but a fingernail, both edge and torn, does the trick!
       

      These are the colours I used for this. I picked them as I went along, only having a vague idea of how this was going to end up.
      The miniature was baseless, so I made a base for it:

      Bespoke 3D printed 80 x 55 mm oval lipped base.
       
      Starting by dipping my finger in a pool of Scalecolor Heavy Metal (=midtone silver) I wiped the finger a bit and “drybrushed” the whole model with a movement from front to back on the model. A few goes at this covered nicely:
       

       
      This was followed by a highlight of Army Painter Shining Silver on the ridges and main plated of the head and tail, taking care to not cover up all the Heavy Metal.
       

       
      After that, some Vallejo Game Color Glorious Gold on the claws

       
      I mixed some heavy metal with the gold to create a highlight color, which I dabbed on the tips of the claws. I also tried to do the teeth in gold with the edge of a fingernail, but this did not turn out too well.
       
      Tearing a fingernail, I used the point to paint the teeth individually, and also did the eyes in Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue, highlighted with a small dot of ancient Hobby Game Products Blue 005. The nail broke off, and I had to tear me a new one.


       
      This I then used to clean up some areas with black lining and fixing bits I had missed or slopped the wrong color on.

       
      I finished with some blobs of Vallejo Green Ink on the sides and underneath.
      Then I had to fix all the spots of green that had gotten where they should not be.
      And then I had to fix all the metal that had rubbed off here and there with my handling of the mini.
       
      The base:
       

       
      A thick layer of Army Painter Walking Dead Dirt Spatter, followed by Reaper Pure Black on the rim.
      After this was dry, I marked where the feet would be by dabbing some lighter brown on the soles of the feet and holding it to the base. This was followed by a globbing on of thinned down PVA woodworking glue to the base surface with my finger again. A couple of tufts were added straight into the wet glue and then I dipped the whole shebang in my box of flockmix.
      Gently clearing flock from where the feet were to go, I put some superglue in the general areas and placed the miniature on the base, and it was done:
       

       

       

       

       

       
      Painted by hand. In the most literal sense.
       
      All in all, a fun couple of hours of getting messy fingers.  Mostly waiting for the paint to dry whilst frantically wiping at my tacky paws to get the paint off.
      And at last I got to cut my fingernails down to their proper place again! Cardboard boxes being the sworn enemy of fingernails, they caused a couple of casualties at work today.

      Howdy,
       
           For my ninth day of International Mini Painting Month I present Sister Maria from the Chronoscope Bones...
       


       
      Guns are not my fantasy...
      So I gave her Seoni's Staff... (89006: Seoni, Iconic Sorceress)
      and painted her as a Druid,
       
      Kev!
