And just to make sure she puts me in my place as an amateur, my partner painted this Goremaw.    

yes    

I got an extra frost giant king and queen, but everything else is good.

I'm not mad. But I am upset. I understand that Reaper is working as hard as they can. And that Reaper cannot be held responsible for the bankruptcy of the shipping company. But Reaper could have been better at communications. I mean, this isn't the first multi million dollar Kickstarter. This shouldn't be an insurmountable obstacle.

Cheers,

I'm sorry...what?!  Where was this information?

Kickstarter update #84: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-3-the-search-for-mr-bones/posts/1677519

More information on the shipping company: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/sep/02/hanjin-shipping-bankruptcy-causes-turmoil-in-global-sea-freight

 

Quote from the update (from Sept 2016):
 

Quote

While we are currently behind schedule on fulfillment, we do not expect the situation with Hanjin to cause more than a slight hiccup as we work to find other carriers or our freight, and work through the instability freight costs are experiencing at the moment.

 

So realistically this did not delay it all that much.

It's like we're twins...

Triplets!  Because I am not prepared either and have lots of minis bought in the eighties still in their original packages.

Quadruplets.

 

I'm right there with you guys.

I'm going to have to get out in the garage soon to do some 'organizing'; I currently don't even have room to just put the box out there.:blink:

I've been working on the queue of prepped figures on my table for several months.  That has opened some space in storage boxes, but we didn't get all that much.  I brought more home from Reapercon.

I have only painted a couple of my bones 1 minis; skipped Bones 2 but have picked up a few of the dragons and other larger pieces.  I initially backed Bones 1 because my son wanted his own plastic men to paint and play with and the deal was impossible to miss.  I cherry picked the pieces I wanted out and the rest went into a plastic bin for him.  They have since been re-split since the little sister wanted in on action so they each have a bin now of half-painted Bones.  

The new arrivals will get split between the 3 of us with most of the bigger pieces going to me.  I'll have to figure out exactly how to integrate the new boxes with my existing ones but I'm getting good a playing Jenga. 

My main concern is that Mal'Drakar won't fit in my display cabinet so I will have to look into additional space for finished pieces soon.

Update.

 

I've been looking at storage bins for sorting them out. But they're mostly too big, too small(ish) or... not currently on sale. I've tried Staples, Michaels (why do they keep reorganizing the whole store?!) and Canadian Tire (currently best choice).

 

Aaaaand now I'm also going to need a label maker.

 

I also need to figure out which pair of pants I won't be wearing that day.

I spend my days in regular communications with my sweetie, among others, due to the wondrous technology of the smartphone.

But my sweetie knows me well enough to know that when communications are terse, misspelled, or absent, then surely on my end, the turds have impacted the rotary engine. Communications will resume when I can poke my head up without gettin' besplattered.

Interestingly, my sweetie gripes about a friend of hers with whom she texts most every day... who does not understand this, and who gets loud and panicky when communications are not forthcoming.

Just sayin'.

I have some from the 80's. and by some, I mean the usual 20, but I know how much smaller my 20 than some others around here. I didn't start painting minis again until the mid 90's. So some of the ones I bought in the 80's were lost to the mists of time. 

 

So I'm just a cousin.

 

Ive seen many things I would like to organize my minis in at the container store and IKEA. But I'm currently storing them on some cheap plastic shelving I got at Home Depot, and an IKEA cabninet with drawers. 

 

Ready to paint and/or current high priority go on the shelves closest to the painting desk. Assembled and/or breakable and I don't think I'll pain soon go on the shelves in the closet. Boxed or blistered minis go in bins on those shelves. Old lead minis go into a plastic scrap book bin. Board game minis go into there own plastic scrap book bins. 

 

The Bones that have had there mold lines cleaned go into a small IKEA box. Same for board game minis into there own box. 

 

Bones 1 got sorted into characters by class, and then monsters by type. Bones 2 did not. I am going to sort all three as soon as Bones 3 comes in, and put them in plastic bags and throw them into one big drawer. (Except the insidiously boxed items which get placed on the shelf.)

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
       
      RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.
