I'm wave 3 and had the Frost Giants in my order; I've watched them get to wave 6 with no shipping notice for me. People are modifying, painting and posting their Bones 4 and who knows how long it'll be before I actually get my stuff. All of my enthusiasm has evaporated.

 

Nah, enthusiasm is still there, as when they DO get the restock, they will be burnining through 2-3 waves of skipped orders a day by my estimation. Possibly much faster, as they said they were going to pull the rest of the order, then set it aside, and return to it in wave order when the container arrived.

 

What I get for ordering pretty much at least one of everything, so if there was an issue, I basically guaranteed I would be hit by it. Not my intent, but definitely the result.

Watching the fulfillment feed I noticed a line/pile of boxes building up on camera right out of the way of the actual packing and addressing line.

I suspect those might be the pulled orders waiting for the rest of the goodies to arrive.

It’s been two days since my BBBoBs was delivered and I just now noticed the note the delivery guy put down in the record on the  “Delivered” note.

 

Delivered: Met Customer Man

 

^_^

 

"Customer Man" should definitely be your Reaper title, since you haven't set one.

I'm still trying to sort through mine. I've been finding that I need to stop and dry fit a lot of the minis to figure out if they have all their bits, which has been time consuming. So far I've only found two overt problems, sophie has an extra set of minotaur hands in stead of wings, and the space cowboy has a broken gun.

 

for the most part I'm happy with the minis I got, although there are some minis that are very different sizes than I was expecting. Surprisingly the best mini so far is the blood nebula mercenary who has a slightly better casting than any of the 3 metal versions of that mini I own.

Here are some I haven’t seen shared yet / much

 

has anyone else a Blacktooth that leans until his jaw almost touches he ground? I have two and hey both have a super lean, but the legs don’t look bent out of place...I resolved this with shoving apoxie putty under the right foot. Just imagine how much they leaned before I did that, since they are still rather low

I got the Hot Lead bundle.  It is How to paint difficult colors (2DVDs) Paint white, black, red, even yellow areas without fear. And How to paint a better miniature (3 DVDs) one "Basic" for prepping, selecting the right tools and colors, priming, drybrushing inking, washing, basing and varnishing.  On the Advanced two DVDs mysteries of subtle blends, painting realistic faces and eyes, transparent gem effects and NMM.

My Blacktooth also leans.  I had to boil because the feet did not fit in the footprints.

I think they're supposed to lean pretty low, to be taking a bite out of a standard adventurer. I'm pretty sure that's how they were previewed, more or less...

It makes sense, but I think they are too low. Mine are propped up a fair ways with the apoxie putty under the foot, they bottom jaw pretty much touched the table before

Well good news is, they are on my wave. Bad news is, I have all 3 "list of Doom" models in my order.  Goblinfarts! :grr:

I’m sorry. My Wave 1 box has managed to crawl inside the front door and make it about ten feet down the hall...

 

...I’m waiting patiently to open it [?] in solidarity with ya?

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      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
