[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

 

 

and over $75cnd in import later, I have my giant box of bonesium.

 

worth it. Glad Cav bones got split; it might save me from customs canada next time.

Sadly, the reality check we Canadians got was that, once the US-CAN$ conversion is done, we've all paid our 13-15% on GST/HST + ~9$ service charge for our Bones.

 

Cross border shipping is a harsh mistress.

 

And it's still worth it!

 

::(: We Brazilians paid a 60% Tax and $4.00 in handle (and US Dolar is 3.1 to 1 BR Real, it was 2.2..).

 

But... :mellow:

 

 

::D: Still Worth it! ::D:

 

There's also the psychological side of things in between knowing beforehand how much extra you're expected to pay (or a rough idea), and having the surprise amount once the mailman shows up at the doorstep.

Question: If there is an issue in two separate orders, both sent to me, should I send a separate email for each one to keep the emails easy to access?

 

Also, what if I discover another issue with an order that I've already sent an email about? (my first order was missing Narthrax, which I emailed about already; however, since then, I've discovered that one of my dragon hatchlings has two right hind legs)

 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

Yes, two e-mails, please.  

 

An additional e-mail about the dragon legs is allowed.

it seems that my Bonesylvania box is missing the female barbarian (92854) how could I ask for a replacement?

 

curious fact: I had a second male barbarian, but armless.

First of all, Thank you Ladystorm and Izzy for pulling my boxes! Thank you indeed!

 

Second. I think I will be in trouble, because my wife found out about me and my BONES (especially my 10 Bones Sophies)

notice the "virgin hand" above. I am not comfortable enough with my bones...

It's like those 9 out of 10 doctors agree, stabbing yourself in the eye with a fork is bad for your eyesight kind of things.

 

Nine normal Sophies and then Moon-Moon Sophie (Sophie-Sophie?) on the end going "LOLS GUIZ TIME FOR LIMBO!"

@Bryan, I see the process has started to return any damaged / missing Bones. My immediate life after fulfillment was filled with wedding plans, but now that I'm all nuptialed I have time to look through my stuff. Is it still okay to report anything lost/damaged?

 

Also, and pardon if this has been asked a million times... Any estimate when Bones 2 will be in the store? I need more Cultists. A lot more Cultists.

Yes, follow directions in last KS Update.

The reports are being processed in the order in which I received them, a small batch at a time as to not overwhelm the Internet Order fulfillment process.

 

Any estimate when Bones 2 will be in the store?

They are being released in batches of approximately fifty (subject to change).

This is both awesome, and wallet-dangerous.  Are they being released in order of numbering, or some other method?  Or can you not say?

Thanks Bryan! The few I've pulled out - I have to say the quality is staggering. These are truly amazing, I think you and your whole team should be proud. I'm looking forward to harassing my players with these for the next few decades (it may take me that long to finish painting them).

Why Bryan, you've changed your… well, everything!  ::P:

 

As it happens, Ladystorm is pretty awesome too.  :poke:

      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!
