Got a UPS shipping notice at the behest of Reaper, but nothing actually FROM Reaper. This happened this morning, and has an expected delivery date of Tuesday. Something Bonesy This Way Comes.


...And it just got updated to Friday., 14.9 lb.

Wow, looks like my package is out for delivery already. Gotta love that kind of service. ::):




As is mine. I was concerned* for a while that it originally had a second "Destination Scan" this morning, but that updated to "Out for Delivery" a while ago.


And I just got an email from UPS saying Friday.  ^_^  Apparently UPS trucks are faster UPS email.


* Too strong a word, but there you go.

LOL - I don't know what I started here.  My assistant just came in and she saw the listing of the weights on my computer screen.  She was shocked as she thought these were baby weights (I was telling her earlier about my friend who had a baby last night).


I patiently explained to her that this was much more important in that these are the weights of miniatures going to people across the US and Canada.


... she rolled her eyes and left the room.  I'm not even sure why she came in my office in the first place.

We're having a slight problem syncing our database to the very specific requirements for international shipments - important fields for customs that should auto-populate are not.


We're keeping on by pulling Wave 2 at the moment, while also working on trying to get the data to populate properly so we can switch over to Wave 1 Postals (which includes ROW and US PO Box and APO/FPO boxes).


We appreciate your patience while we press ahead rather than lose time.

Sorry. I thought this was for tracking fulfullment. I guess it's actually only for the Fulfillment Tracker?



No worries.

Hey doug, doug, doug, - 

wanna bet a bugbear who gets their package first?  

UPS says its on a truck for delivery.  Northglenn is closer to the hub in commerce city than Broomfield,  but I'm feeling lucky.

This is important: If you got an email from UPS "At the request of Reaper Miniatures," and it has a delivery date? CHECK THE TRACKING NUMBER to make sure that's ACTUALLY when it is slated for delivery.


The most recent email I got said the 17th, which I thought was really weird, since when I checked last night, it was already in Colorado. I then checked the tracking number, and it says it will deliver on the 13th by the end of the day.


Moral of this story: Check your tracking number!!

      Your basic normal-sized wolf:

      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.
