On Reaper Live last night, they said that it was being delayed by Australian Customs having to fumigate the containers. Apparently the ship was infested with stinkbugs :blink:

 

 

 

Can someone explain to them that this is just a toy?

Might have been bugs on the ship and the customs folks decided that fumigating the exterior was a useful precaution, too. Australia has had serious problems with invasive species and they take prevention pretty seriously.

 

The marmorated stink bug is native to China, Korea, and Japan and has become a problem in the US over about the last 20 years. It is thought that the bug got here by hitching rides on cargo. There are apparently populations in Texas, so it's also possible that the bugs originated there if they're inside the container.

I live in KY, and we get stink bugs all the freaking time. They get inside the house, and they don't seem entirely afraid to just fly straight into your face for no good reason. I hate them so much.

On a Bones 4 note, I got my email from Kitty saying that my replacements are on their way.  Probably here Tuesday or Wednesday.

Has anyone else found that the snake statue is brittle? My son dropped it to a carpeted floor from a metre and the head snapped clean off. Seems a bit of an odd texture compared to the other models and very heavy.

It is Bones Black.  It is more brittle than Bones Classic but does not bend as much and hold more detail. All expansions and some addons where done with this.  It is also heavier.

I have found it definitely heavier, but I hadn't noticed it being brittle. I haven't dropped it, but I haven't exactly been gentle with it, either. You might have gotten some sort of miscast, maybe?

Its not a miscast. The Bones Black material is known to be more brittle. If you read through the thread you’ll see several people have received various Bones Black minis with In transit breakage. Something very rarely seen with the original Bones plastic.

 

We get better detail minis, but at the cost of lessened durability.

Tracking now says my package left England yesterday, but isn't scheduled for delivery until the 31st. 

Also, it's 'Pining for the fjords, so excuse us if the package stays a few days in a location that doesn't make sense' PostNord that's supposed t do the deed here in Norway.   

The Pledge Manager links to UPS Interlink, which of course doesn't recognise the tracking code.

      Join us now and you will receive six highly detailed stand-alone buildings as STL files for your 3D printer!

      Link to the project: CITY OF TAROK: 3D PRINTABLE BUILDINGS
       
      City of Tarok is a project we wanted to make for years. We had plenty of experience as we create our maps in 3D and we also created many 3D printable miniatures. We thought, aside from modular sets, there are not many custom buildings on the market. We love creating small worlds like dioramas where you can feel that every piece of the terrain is hand-crafted and living. Now, with the world of 3D printing, we think our imaginations finally have a chance of materializing. 
       

       

       
      We have reached our main goal within 2 hours, which means you'll receive all the six core buildings at the $60 Settler reward and above. Now we are on to unlock as many free additional sets as we can. If you join you'll help us to make your pledge more valuable.

      A set of 13 hand sculpted 28mm scale sinister robed figures, for all of your pulp, horror and fantasy games.
       

       
      I backed Midlam’s Village of Witches and was very happy with them. The minis are very well cast and pretty reasonably priced.
       
      I’m particularly fond of the guy with the bells.

      Hi to all and welcome in my new Kickstarter campaign! this is a little campaign, composed by three busts. Each of them is a part of a story, a legend born from folklore or...yes, why not, by me. So, let's begin to show you my three last works!
        Kuzunoha, the fox of Shinoda (large size bust)
       Kuzunoha is a popular kitsune in the japanese folklore. She was the kami of Shinoda's temple and, assuming human form, she got married with the poet Abe no Yasuna. From this love was born Seimei, a legendary Wizard. Foxes, in Japanese mitology are powerful demons and i feel myself linked to this mystical figure. Kuzunoha is a  resin bust high 10 cm and composed by four components to assemble with glue and paint. 
      Windo the traveler (Small size bust) 
      Windo is a little bust high 5cm and composed by three components. Windo is a mage...a bard and an old traveler. He tell stories to every one that want to speak with him. 
      Sometime, when I play with my immagination, I like to think that Windo is myself in the next 30 and in another world full of magic...yes...for me is really funny. So, take a look! 
      this is Windo!
        Le Chat, the monster hunter (Kickstarter edition) (large size bust)
      Le Chat is already produced but this model is really important for me so I wanna give him some optional part and create some new version of this model. This character is inspired by the cat with the boots and  by some videogame. Is an interesting kit composed by much components, much of them optional. In this special edition, Le chat has two optional medallion, a chaos star and an head cat! Hope that you like this model high 8 cm and composed by 10 components ( optional parts included)
         Medallions of Lechat Kickstarter edition
        IMPORTANT!!! In this campaign the principal rewards are two LARGE SIZE BUSTS and one SMALL SIZE BUST so, if you choose only one of the two busts, you'll be able to order  Kuzunoha or Le Chat at the end of the campaign!
      the optional medallions of Le Chat At the end of the campaign, you'll receive anyway the optional medallions of Le Chat for free!!!
      Medusa shield if your order will be over  € 50, will be also included a special gift for you, the medusa's shield! This is a bonus gift and in a limited edition. Is the shield of one of my models, Alcibiades the centaur. Is a little object molded in resin and golden powder
        For every question or help, please, contact me. I am at your disposal!
        The production of this little set will start really soon you'll receive your rewards shortly after the end of this campaign!
