[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

My email notice I got on Monday, which at first wasn't finding the package, is now working and showing me the status of my package.  So I'm excited now that I can track the package's travels in route to me.

I am wave one and not at a PO box and I'm locked in with no email confirmation.  I'll sit on my hands till tomorrow to see if it gets sorted out but I'm a little sad because this means it is really unlikely I will have my bones this weekend :(.  hopefully it shipped and I just haven't gotten the confirmation.  It just makes a me a little bummed.

For anyone who has received their tracking info, was your tracking number usable right away? Mine is showing as not found. Was wondering if it missed yesterdays truck or if I need to contact Reaper.

Tracking numbers are not necessarily "useful" right away. Ups has to 'activate them' which happens at the first scan within their system.

 

That's an oversimplification, but it means not to panic if your tracking number is "dead" for the first day.

Thanks Bryan. I am trying to schedule a few days off to coincide with the arrival of the box. As much as I want to throw my papers in the air and run for the door when it arrives, I should probably make sure someone will be covering for me when I do.

Pfft, packages from Texas have never gotten To me in two days. It takes at least 3 or 4. Even if I purchase something from the store on Monday, ships Tuesday, I never see it til Friday, usually Monday.

Which is funny because Packages that ship on tuesday from Reaper always get to me by Thursday or Friday and you are geographically closer.  Weird world.

More often than not, this is a matter of shipping hubs. I have a painter that I work with in Temple, TX. I've also worked with someone near Reaper. Although Temple is closer, the painter near Reaper would always get packages faster, because mail between Houston and Temple always routes through Austin or Dallas first, adding an extra day to the delivery time. Shipping logistics are fun! :;):

Hilarious because my ups tracker just updated me and told me that my bones 2 package will deliver on Friday. It was shipped Tuesday night. :P

 

And I just got an email from UPS saying Monday, since they are saying it shipped this morning, even though I got a shipping notice on the 9th and arrival scans into a UPS hub on the 9th. Not enjoying UPS today.

      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.
