[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave


Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

Locked in through KS, or through the Pledge Manager? Unfortunately, I would prefer to not mention my pledge manager date because of personally ingrained internet security :ph34r: .

Understood. But it's the only way we can tell where they are in the Wave! Anyone who is Wave 2, what where your pledge manager lock in dates if you don't mind posting?
I locked in on 1/3/14
Wave 1 or 2? And have you received an email?

Wave 2. No e-mail yet. Also, I am not using a PO Box and am not international.

I remember my TSR basic AD&D box set introducing me to a rust monster that destroyed most of my gear.

 

Glad to see some people are getting their goods already.  My daughter has had a fever the last two nights and I ended up playing some Left 4 Dead 2 after she went to bed last night with some friends so I have yet to dig through my Core set and Expansion 1 bags.  Is that wrong of me? :)

 

Yes. Yes it is. :)

The nice thing about being a ROW backer from my part of the world is that I sleep through the majority of the work-day for the fine people in Denton, the Home of Happiness! and I wake up and pretty much know exactly what's going on.

 

It does suck a little that we had ROW issues again, but then again I think we all knew that the first ROW wave would be the trickiest one, and it absolutely makes sense for Reaper to keep on shipping to the backers that their systems can handle while they sort the issue.  However, if I might make a suggestion:  given that non-forum based ROW backers won't know what's going on -officially-, it might make sense for an official Reaper post in the comments just outlining what's been said on here so that people have a reference point.

edit: d'oh, UPS...it's going to sit in the snowbank for a few hours for sure.

 

:unsure:  Do you have a trustworthy neighbor and/or friend that would be willing to check for it every couple of hours (or at least when UPS tracking says it's been delivered)? That would be awful if your paints got ruined!  ::(:

 

Huzzah!

Can you re-route it to the UPS Store nearby for pick-up perhaps? I know I can if I wanted to drive 15-20 miles away.

Or if the actual depot is closer, call UPS with the tracking info and ask them hold it there for pickup.

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
       

      As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames.  I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
      This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
      At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
       

      What is this sorcery?! 
      Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

      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.
