[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

Here's a shipping-related question: If our ongoing medical issues cause a need to reroute our shipment elsewhere than our front door, can that still be changed via the pledge manager? Or would that cause something to blow up/my Bones to disappear/the world to end/etc.?

as long as you change it before we pull an ship, there's no issue at all.

Good to know, thank you.

 

 

So, like, how far in advance of packing and shipping does order prep begin? For example, is there anything out now for tomorrow or the next (working) day, etc.? I'm sure this has been covered, but yeah, sorry.

Marvin, I think someone said that you can request UPS hold it at their depot for pick-up.  You'll probably need to set up a MyUPS account or something. 

 

I also have medical issues and set up a MyUPS account to give instructions for my really hard days. Some packages must be signed for and you can authorize sign-less deliveries and give them a drop-off location that works for you. It's a great service for when you need it.

Yeah, I've heard of such things. I've had problems with UPS in the past, though, and would be scared of doing such.

 

UPS, USPS, I trust no one, right now. Oy. <_<

My sympathies in the issues with your carriers. How dare you pay them money and give them your business - did you stop to think how that would impact them???? ;-)

 

Just received my UPS Tracking Email for W2 $1 Pledge (actually $20) to New Zealand. Woohoo... double-take... UPS? I thought ROW was all USPS.

 

Am I USPS/UPS confused or has something changed, gone wrong, or is this normal?

 

Edit: Answered my own question by reading elsewhere in the forums and KS Comments.  This is normal. UPS picks up, tracks, sorts, hands over to USPS.

 

Other logistics/email strangeness is that the email for my W1 EB Pledge (also only $20) hasn't arrived yet. Not too concerned over this, just bemused. No doubt the email will arrive as soon as I stop watching for it.  I think I can wait another 20 minutes before panicking, I think I can...  :wacko:

 

Edit: Sry, this should probably have been in one of the shipping threads. But I was camping out here and...

      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.

      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.
