[MERGED] Bones II Shipping Excitement/Wave

Recommended Posts

 

Bryan, can you confirm that the UPS software is just a front end for USPS? That's what I got from the description of their UPS Mail Inovations page here: http://www.upsmi.com/services/domestic_mail.html

This is the way it was told to me:

 

UPS handles it until it gets into the international Post system. They also are in charge of generating confirmation messages and emailing them to customers, apparently.

 

There will be no UPS charges for them, only the customs fees they would have been responsible for otherwise.

 

Thanks muchly Bryan!  That's a load off a lot of people's minds.

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.

 

This is true. No account set up needed. I simply called UPS customer service and asked them to hold my package at the depot for pick up. Works well for me since they are just down the street and my delivery is expected during record cold along with possible snow. All they asked of me was my tracking number and phone number.

Yeah, we're an hour or more from a facility. Yay, middle of nowhere!

 

I'm going to try to stay put, I guess, and try to arrange to have someone pick the package up if I cannot be here. I would not feel right switching it to a PO box (I realized, I still have my own, even, which is how I should've done it in the first place I guess) under the circumstances, and I do not want to cause any sort of glitch by doing such a thing. But I also do not want to mess with UPS, 'cause yeah prior experiences.

 

I guess I need more friends and family in the immediate area so I'll have more mailing options. Gak.

Wave 1 RoW, no email yet.  :(  Gonna give it another 24hrs before worrying about anything though.  Not like it isn't going to spend a week sitting at the Canadian border in customs anyways.  Just getting insanely jealous.  :D

My wave one showed up today :)  Quick inventory looks accurate and complete.

 

I liked the addition of the "thank you" signature page.  I also feel privileged and lucky to have had my fulfillment pulled by ReaperClark :)

Got our box and inventory complete. Our package was 26 lbs for point of reference so figuring out where to start setting stuff up and organize temporarily is a bit of a struggle, so nothing is quite open yet. Those minis are sure jammed into the core and expansion boxes!

 

Also much thanks to Katie for pulling our order.

Received today! 100% fulfilled here. Every single piece for every set I ordered has been accounted for. Even had an extra bit of dungeon dressing in the Thank You pack.

 

Well done, Reaperpeeps!

That "extra" bit is actually the BASE for the Deva.  ^_^

This was a stalagmite kinda thing in the Thank You pack. It's not the Standing Stone, nor does it look like anything from Dungeon Decor II (although I didn't order that one, so I can only compare to the Kickstarter artwork).

 

I learned about the Deva base in Expansion 2 earlier! (I thought that was an odd throw-in too, until I saw the thread about it tonight).

      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.

      Howdy,
       
           For my ninth day of International Mini Painting Month I present Sister Maria from the Chronoscope Bones...
       


       
      Guns are not my fantasy...
      So I gave her Seoni's Staff... (89006: Seoni, Iconic Sorceress)
      and painted her as a Druid,
       
      Kev!
