IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

Try a hot knife.

 

We have something that looks a lot like a soldering iron and a knife really liked each other, and had a baby.

 

Cuts through PVC pretty well. ::):

They are also pretty affordable - around $20, even at Harbor Freight.

 

Intended to cut through insulation foam, it can, in point of fact, cut right through a Bones mini with relative ease - we have not yet tried it with Bones Black, not having had any need to, yet.

 

But the hot knife is HOT! and should be used with care.

 

The one we have is around 20 years old, and pretty much is a soldering iron with a clamp to hold a blade.

 

The Auld Grump - the first hot knife I ever owned was pretty much a cardboard tube to hold the batteries, with a frame to hold a bit of Ni-Chrome wire - the switch was a strip of metal that could be rotated to make contact with the metal base of the tube... an incredibly minimalist bit of engineering called a Wonder Cutter.

In my experience, UPS shouldn't with these shipments.

Whew. I'm in the office Wednesday, and I don't want to take off work to get my package.

 

Well.... I WANT to, but I shouldn't

I think I might have been the very last Wave 1 Order. (And I had Frost Giants and the Tree, but not the Hut.)

Mine had a departure scan just after midnight on the 13th from Commerce city in Colorado.

 

Box buddies!  ::D: My tracking also said my box arrived in Commerce City just after midnight on the 13th.  Probably there are a couple of others on the journey to the Pacific Northwest.

I vaguely remember them saying that they think they will have more around the end of the week. Fingers crossed, I expect a lot of people are going to be stuck waiting for more huts.

      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
