Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

I was all set to pick up my box at the local UPS store yesterday afternoon after a rather grueling day at work, but UPS, for some reason, moved it from "out for delivery" in the morning and rerouted it back to the sorting center instead of taking it to the store. So, I'll have to drive out there again today to get my box now. Not happy, UPS. Not happy.<_<

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

Yah, all three of them are jackals on some level:rock: Just hope UPS doesn't do like they did with my table saw and delivery at 6PM, good chance my youngest will start tearing it open before we get back from oldest's taekwondo:( Oh, wait, we are all going haha nevermind.

All the paint discussion made me go back and check mine. I didn't think there were any errors since I had 4 boxes of 24 different paints, I even shared pics here. After checking I still got all the new paints, but there was definitely some oddities.

 

Paint set A:

dd04fef282f35c26a122a51837bae796_original.thumb.jpg.59778af1b35ee8da6ecd90861ca82b5f.jpg

These came in two boxes, labeled 2A and 2B, divided as shown. You might think Paint set A would be labeled 1A and 2A, or even 1A and 1B, but you would be wrong. Also, 2A is titled (on the box) "Master Series Paint Core Colors" and 2B is called "Master Series Paint Pathfinder Colors"

 

Paint Set B:

d03f529352bbffa06ac9c5a12aa25a63_original.thumb.jpg.ffea6cced84a701b8eef0de1a7de0e93.jpg

Paint set B contains 1A and 1B, divided as shown, in a decidedly different grouping than set A. And 1A is labeled "Master Series Paint Pathfinder Colors", 1B is called "Master Series Paint Core Colors". Also of note, it looks like Ancient Wood received a last minute name change to Ancient Bark.

 

I'm still very happy with my paints, I got everything I ordered and have no complaints. But it does look like they have some issues with their packing system.

 

For reference, here's the original post I made with paint pics:

Someone asked for pics of the paint sets:

The colours look great, I can't wait to break them out and see which one becomes my newest favorite.

I wish the mystic portal was a stand alone piece, it is so far the only thing that I didn't order that I wish I had from bones 4. Didn't make too much sense for me to buy it for $50 on here, when I could wait and get it for more likely $20 retail. Otherwise I'm happy with my order, now just have to wait for another 6 weeks for wave 14, woo.

Or conversely, you could have bought it for fifty, have it now (not 6-9 months from now) and sold off what you didn't want (or trade in a BoGW??) and probably broke even or even show a small profit:rock: Just saying.

I'm dubious of the efficacy of selling what I don't want in a box. Maybe... but sometimes the hassle of selling it off isn't worth it.

 

I mostly wanted the last bit of Fan Favorites - the catfolk, Izzy, and the Efreeti and Genie - and I already have the female catfolk in pewter and the Efreeti thanks to last month's giveaway. Just gotta wait for the others to hit the store...

I’d ponied up $5 to UPS to delay my shipment since I wasn’t going to be around and we’ve had a couple of porch thieves lately in the neighborhood. Then it got weather delayed and missed the requested delayed delivery. UPS cancelled the $5 charge. At least something was done right.

      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
