[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Yeah. The transition from Wave 1 UPS to wave 1 Postal (which includes ROW) was not as smooth as it could have been.

 

We are not yet fully in the groove. There were some lost time moments at the start of day, right after lunch, and at Transition. We get these solved and should start hitting 1k.

 

Email is a whole nother animal. We are confirming them manually tonight to prevent a repeat of last nights errors. It is unlikely that you will have received your email just yet if you're in today's 844. But you will.

At the moment yes.

 

There's a little bit of to-do at Transition from UPS to Postal, and it means that it's more efficient for us to have kept with UPS briefly. The glitch cost us about half an hour, which is a lot of orders, so keeping going was deemed prudent.

 

My current understanding of te plan is to do Postal wave 1 and Postal wave 2 in sequence, then transition back to UPS wave 2 then UPS wave 3 then postal 3 postal 4, etc. rather than 10 transition points, only 5.

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.

 

~ S ~

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.

 

Oh, that'll be Captain Invictus's, I think.  He posts on the Something Awful forums.  His Bones I order was even bigger, and involved 20 Vampire boxes.

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.

 

Since I see fellow New England peoples: putting a plug in to New England Miniature Painting Association paint day.  Thread is in the off-topic forum.

 

 

On-topic:  I'm wave 3 so: soon!

I am wondering what will happen with UPS vs USPS shipping times.

 

I typically get a package from Reaper in five days. In order to get my order this weekend, it seems that UPS will need to deliver a day faster. (Since I have not received an email yet, but I am Wave 1 and I am hoping it was shipped today).

I am also wave 1 and got the email glitch.  From what I can tell all the US wave 1's have been done today.  That is what I gather from the forums someone correct me if I am wrong (which is entirely possible lol).

I have faith that my order shipped today. I am more wondering if UPS will get it to me in time to benefit from the Monday holiday.

If we're doing shout-outs--hey, Texas Panhandle! I don't think you'll be here. :lol:

 

 

As a last-waver, I'm glad spring break isn't until the third week of March. ^_^

      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.
