Heh. Up here 5"-6" of snow means getting up 45 minutes early to run the snow thrower before work. ::D:

 

That just means put the truck in 4x4 and drive down.

 

 

True, that. People with trucks don't have to get up to clear snow. But many do because once the truck packs down the snow, it's harder to clear.

Yeah. I gave my driveway a good shoveling so the sun could do some melting for me.

Pittsburgh has weirdly pleasant weather--it's like the Florida of the north. Not too much snow and lots of retirees. It's actually gotten cold this winter, which is unusual, but we only had a dusting of snow this morning--better than DC or Boston!

 

In sort-of-related news, we did a quick inventory of our paints. Three of them had caps that were so loose as to almost fall off, and in those, the paint in the tips had dried solid. Took a bit of doing to clean those out but the paint's flowing again. We did not have, as far as I can tell, any problems with freezing with the possible exception of one bottle of yellow, which is behaving awfully weirdly and requires more research. (It is both very thick and very separated and possibly a bit chalky. Haven't done any serious tests yet.)

 

For reference, our paints were in a big box sitting on a truck for 6 or 7 hours in 0 degree F weather, so hopefully those of you in similar climes will have as much good luck as we did with your paints.

I'm getting mine after work tonight.

It's only 9:45 am here.

Need minis now!

 

We are used to snow in Boston, but getting a foot plus every singe week for 3 weeks in a row can be a bit daunting to the postal workers :)

I'm trying to get the husband to play his guitar on top of a snow bank so he can look like an epic metal video, so far no go.

Video will be necessary

Video--- hell a bunch of alcohol will be necessary to get him out there lol.  He does have a BC RIch red and black "metal" guitar and is one pasty dude, so I think we can pass the yard off as Norway and make the most bruuutal videos :)

 

T minus 3 1/2 hours till I hit UPS for my Bones!!!!!!!

I have been pulling out some of the larger figures that require assembly. Then:

 

Open bag

Dump contents

Dry fit the pieces (trim parts for snug assembly)

Verify all parts are present (so far no errors)

Boil them Bones

Ice-water bath

Let parts air dry

Glue figure together

 

I've put together aprox 10 "figures" so far. The two biggies (DDS2 and KWB) aired out last night and will get assembly tonight.

Reaperbryan or any reaper fabulous person, just a quick question if i can. i don't know if i am asking this in the right place so I apologize firstly.

 

if i have checked my confirmation email and their is a item missing would my email to your [email protected] , which does include my order number and email address be read in time for the missing item to be added to my shipment?

 

only reason i ask is as it is the world breaker that is missing off my shipping confirmation and that is one of the ones i have really been looking forward to getting.

 

again sorry if this is in the wrong place and thanks in advance also

      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.
