[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Holy Carp!  My package is apparently already at the UPS facility in my city.  Of course going by their past performances it wouldn't shock me if it now sits in their warehouse for a couple of days.  I swear I think they believe my packages need to be aged a bit before delivery.

I'm finally a Real Boy! Take THAT, Pinocchio!


Last Location:

DFW Airport, TX, United States, Tuesday, 02/10/2015



They DO exist!



Huzzah!  Mine as well!  Our orders are likely huddled together, fearfully glancing at airport workers, wondering where this strange metal tube is going to take them.

I have three tracking numbers.


Each one is giving me information.


One says a package left Mesquite at 2AM this morning, no further up date

Another says it left Mesquite at 7AM this morning, and got to Memphis @ 8:05PM (so just about an hour ago)

And the third got to DFW at 8:00PM


If they are all mine... that's interesting. Is reaper airmailing paint so it doesn't freeze in transit?

"I-it'll be okay, guys.  I'm sure those nice people at the factory wouldn't send us to bad places."

"It's just like the boat all over again.  We're gonna be stuck here for weeks.  I get motion sickness!"

I'm finding myself checking my email every few minutes. (I'm in wave 1, and can't think of any reason why I wouldn't be UPS-eligible)


It's nerve wracking, but exciting.


I hope the snow lets my Bones arrive. :unsure:

Apparently it's just a glitch.

America is a glitch?


That *would* explain a lot of things.


There's pretty strong evidence that this is true, to both America's credit and its detriment.

I didn't get shipping emails until well after 10PM EST last night. There is still hope, my friends. And if not today...


The sun will come out tomorrow!

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.


We should all be at WPI's Gaming Weekend on 2/20-22. Y'all come by.


Edit: Oh, and it's Wormtown.

But you have to hang on 'till tomorrow come what may.


Tomorrow when I get to start obsessing over when my shipping email will come.

      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.
