So I’m counting how many figures will be included in my 20 glb* box, which is currently showing as scanned at the origin and is due to be delived on the 17th, but keep getting messed up. How many figures are included in the Core Set?

 

 

*. For the purposes of this note, 1 glb equals 1.855 Colonial Standard . . .

Package still lost in the aether. 

 

Is anyone else obsessively checking their tracking? 

 

Yeah. My last scan is still about midnight on Wednesday/Thursday in OKC. And the tracker is still saying Severe Weather Delay with a detail note of "Severe weather conditions have delayed delivery. Your shipment is scheduled to arrive today after the delivery commitment time." Which is what it said on Thursday, Friday, and yesterday.

 

UPS customer service sent me a boilerplate message that didn't address my issue at all. If I don't see anything by tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to follow up again.

Got my reward yesterday. Mossbeard seems to have escaped the box in transit and is probably living wild and free somewhere between Texas and Michigan. Who really wants to live in the Detroit area anyway?



 

Email sent to help at reapermini dot com. I do feel a bit ungrateful, though. The discount for backing over the retail price is so good, I feel as though I got my money's worth without the Ent.

 

Haven't inventoried the core set yet, but man, that barge is large! No, that is not a euphemism...

It's probably hiding out with my Tree of Despair which seems to have done the same thing. /grin/

158, by my count.

 

My total damage is 747 minis, 634 bases, and 1261.87 paid.

 

came out to 0.91$ per piece, which is expensive for bases, but dirt cheap for the minis.

I guess my Bones decided to take a nap in Ohio. They've been in Maumee since noon yesterday.

 

Its the weekend.  My packages often sit there then until moving late Sunday normally.

Razor saw is what I have and what I tried. Need something more substantial.

 

And I agree with you on the preassembly. I’m guessing the manufacturer has experience with children’s toys and didn’t understand a hobbyists needs. 

Too bad Reaper went with the manufacturers recommendations. I think we would’ve been better off without them.

 

I wanted to get one of these.  Glad I didn’t given this.  Having the legs removable was pretty much mandatory.  I think they said the manufacturer said because of tolerances that the end user could not assemble them.  Needed heat and glue.  Of course they might not realize how clever people are in our hobby!

 

And edited wondering how well a jewelers saw would do on it.

Actually, it's 163 in the core. They're numbered in the official image/list at:   http://www.reapermini.com/bones4

I was looking for that pic on the KS campaign page and didn’t see it. Didn’t even think anout looking at the Reaper page for it. Thanks!

Turns out I didn't lock in my first order until January 2018. I was lazy. So if they start Wave 2 on Tuesday I figure Thursday is still a good bet for my shipping notice.

 

Which means I can still use the Thursday references.

 

Never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Not I, but that's because it's Sunday, and I doubt there'd be any updates after it showed up in the Cincinnati area yesterday. They'll take their sweet time bouncing it around until they drop it at the local UPS store and I can get it on my way to dinner with the Missus before we go see Shazam!

Yah, i'm not checking (much haha) because it is Sunday, and also I am working all day running Media stream for my Church, so not able to hit internet till I am home. It left Ft. Worth  at 11:01 PM Friday night, and I am just waiting for it to land *somewhere*:(

Can anyone with the Dreadmere expansion show off some of those glorious undead, like the big flabby thing with the enormous mouth or the zombie monk?

I Can Tuesday night or Wednesday (I plan on livestreaming my unboxing, probably the morning after I get it on tuesday)., unless you get yours first:)

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
