They are really humming along today.  It's quite possible that once they clear the remainder of the RoW pledges (under 400 to go) they will have time to pretty much complete the rest of Wave 2 domestic today.  Then it's likely that they can finish waves 3 and 4 by the end of the week.

They CAN'T finish it that fast.  Then all the trolls on Facebook and the KS comments will need to find something new to complain about!   :;):

I'm in Florida, but can I get in on this "My paints are frozen, therefore Reaper owes me an entirely new full set of 216 paints" thing I keep hearing about? :P

The remaining orders has just dropped below 8000 and as they are shipping around 1000 a day they should be done by the end of next week.

They are here!!

 

So far on my inventory only one thing wrong.  In one of the paint sets I got 2 of the same color and not another.  So one color short (and on the new set of paints unfortunately).  But I've only inventoried paint and the core set so far.

Ooh i haven't even checked the paints...

 

but so far, I've got a second dwarf slaver and a missing rat assassin, and my frog demon has two left arms instead of a right and left. But I'm waiting to send an email to Reaper until I have everything that's wrong XD i'll go check my paints now

Yeah, I'm just going to make a list and wait till things have settled down.  I'd even let Bryan know I'd be happy to pickup replacements at ReaperCon as well if that makes sense for them.

I'm a bit annoyed at work today. I figured with 5"-6" of snow, they'd cancel work, and I could paint my new Bones. But no, I only scored a 2 hour delay. :(

5-6" of snow might cancel work? We would need 20+ before they would even think about cancelling work around here.

Funny I had the same hopes for work.  Only my boss had the forethought to book me (and four others) a hotel room nearby so we could get here.  So the company is closed officially but I'm here working.  Double sting for me.

Well, Northern Virginia is technically in The South. Were I in Iowa where I grew up, and we'd laugh at 5"-6".

      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.

      Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo.

      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.
