[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

I'd be really curious as to the size of the largest order Reaper has. I bet it's huge. I mean really huge. I only added about 7 or 8 thingies to my order, so mine is probably pretty pathetic when compared to the real massive orders.

Where I live, mounds of rock and dirt come in a variety of sizes. I grew up with the understanding that the smaller of these are called "hills", while the larger are called "mountains". This gives me an intuitive grasp of the relative sizes of constructs to which these words are applicable.

 

Then I went West to Arizona, and Colorado, and New Mexico, and saw Mountains the likes of which my internal sense of scale could not rationally accommodate. But I still call the thing I drive over going to and from work a "mountain".

 

I am getting 20 Bones, which really is a lot. I mean, it's downright silly how many figures are going to be showing up. Honestly I'm kind of counting on my daughters to claim a lot of them for themselves, because otherwise I don't know where I'm going to put them. 

 

And I know that some people may laugh at what I consider to be 20, but I don't care. Because 20 is an awesome, magical, mind-blowingly enormous number, no matter how big it is.

Apparently it's just a glitch.

 

America is a glitch?

 

That *would* explain a lot of things.

Careful, or we'll have to go up there and start rummaging through our attic... ;p

 

Well, they're on Wave 2 so mine must have shipped, though I still can't track it...

I just noticed that the tracking link works on my phone, but not from my desktop.  Wat?   :blink:

I've found earlier versions of IE have problems with it. Some one else reported that a default setting of their browser to always reference cached pages could cause that as well.

Heh. The last time you did that, you ended up with a fire in kitchen.  ::P:

So are we officially through all of the US wave 1s? If so have all of the emails been sent? And if they have been sent what should you do if you do not receive an email? I don't want to bother the folks busting their humps to make this thing work.

The emails take about an hour to hit the system after the label has been applied but the actual email network may take up to several more to deliver that email. And until an official Reaper Peep says that wave 1 is done I wouldn't stress to much.

Some people are asking about emails. Thought my advice from this morning might need a boost.

 

Give it time to get sorted out. If nothing is in your inbox by tomorrow noonish central time, then send an email asking to [email protected]

The only thing to do at this time is to practice patience. Either you will receive a correct email later today or you can send us one tomorrow asking about it. Not today, emails need time to get out to you, give it until tomorrow before you email us if you feel you have an issue that needs personal attention**.

 

[email protected]

 

**remember if you email, you need to give enough information to allow us to help you in your email. with the volume of emails we receive, the more time we have to spend on tracking things down to answer your question because you don't give us the info, the less timely your response will be. Include your Invoice/order number, shipping address, all associated emails, name of project (aka KS: Bones 2) specific description of the issue and your full name in every email you send us. It really does matter.

I saw a shipment to Worcester, MA go by a little while ago.

 

If the snow clears up, that's easily drivable. :ph34r:

Becky will cut you if you try to take her Bones.

 

Haha, I will have to find these Woo-town (Worcesterite) people, would love to see what you all got. I saw the town I shipped to earlier today (my work address), but I'm the next town over from Worcester.

I don't know if it's the larger order, but I pulled one today with 165 items. 10x of a lot of the dragons and stuff.

 

That was anomalously large though. The average #items in each wave is different, but the Wave 1 average is about 16 items.

165? Just... wow! I only ordered 25 line items, (with four items at x2) and still missed a lot of stuff. I would love to see a picture of the pile of boxes that the largest order requires.

1) o.O

 

Subliminal 1.5) If only there was a giant bones Tiamat to command that massive flight of dragons.

 

2) EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! EVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOU'RE PART OF A TEAM!(Just in case the reaper folks need a refreshed song)

      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!
