[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Well, glad I rushed to get in on Wave 2. I still haven't managed to get anything, UPS has declared the shipment officially lost or stolen. Supposdely has issued claim information to Reaper in February, Reaper still has not responded to any emails about the issue, and the one time I managed to get a live person on the phone she knew nothing of it and swore they would track it down and get back to me. A week later, still no contact.

 

I've passed angry, discouraged and frustrated, and have begun to just accept the fact that I'm more or less screwed at this point.

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.
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.

 

I just printed the spreadsheet I made when drawing up our pledge. Everything checked out as being there.

Been able to go through some of the boxes and bags. Tally so far: 2 extra minis in the core set and 1 extra slime in the gelatinous cube bag on the plus side. 1 small base missing (so, 49 out of 50 small bases).

Wave 10 order finally made it. Missing the bases. I'll email reaper once I've had a chance to check for other issues. I've about 20 bases already, so it's no biggie to wait to get the kickstarter ones. They all look pretty dang awesome.

Didn't get home from work until 11pm, so excitement's been tempered by that.  So far I've been able to check Dragon's Don't Share, The MFing Tarrasque, ad all the clear-bagged goodies...all of which are accounted for piece-wise, nothing missing.  The only fitment issues so far are that Queen Slug-for-a-butt [Mashaaf] and the castley bits from Dragons Don't Share need a dip in hot water to straighten them out.   With my evenings booked the next couple days, it'll probably be Thurs or Fri until I get to take an inventory of the core set, the bases, and Expansion 3.  Though seeing other people's pictures, I wish I could've thrown in for more.  The clear blue stuff looks great, and oh what I'd give to have gotten the other 2 expansion sets...

 

I'm left feeling like I didn't pay enough for Dragon's Don't Share and Khanjira, though...they're awe inspiring in the same way that Kally is, one of those figures that you test fit and go "No [bleep]ing way...too cool..."

I've officially been boned!

 

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...

Lucky!

 

I can´t touch the box until tomorrow. I promise my son we will do the unboxing together...

You may be out of luck on the UPS-doing-anything-about-it-front but I encourage you to email [email protected] and explain that you have opened a claim for a lost parcel, and when, with any identifying confirmation numbers you can provide. Include your Invoice/Order # so that we can find your original order.

I've emailed [email protected] multiple times now with that information, as well as calling and talking to the customer service person who had me email the information to [email protected] so she could look into it. I've also left voicemail about the issue.

 

Thus far, I've received zero response from Reaper on the issue since opening the claim with UPS, which UPS completed the claim on and sent to Reaper Miniatures on February 27th.

Sent, 'thank you' doesn't cover the sentiment adequately.

For the record, I have nothing in my inbox. I would have expected to have it by now, (~30 minutes after your post). 

 

I will check my spam folders, but I just want you to be aware.

 

EDIT: It was in my SPAM folder.  I'm reading it now so I can research it properly.

Speaking of the communications game and possible snafus, what kind of wait time are we looking at before being connected with the next available operator getting missing-pieces emails, sent per the guidelines set forth in the most recent update, addressed? Should we expect direct responses to the emails? I know y'all are busy and all, so it helps to know at what point we should consider something other than a long queue is possibly to blame.

Other than telling you your email was received, there is nothing we can do yet. The system is not ready to process these and you are looking at a few more weeks of wait time before processing begins.

 

Your emails are received, read and in a holding folder waiting until something can be done.

Is there a cut off time to send the email? I was waiting for a cool down period so Reaper isn't bombarded, but don't want to miss out. ^__^

I am waiting too. I figured a couple of months was not too long for the dust to settle.

      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.

           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,
