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

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.

"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?

Actually their Kickstarter picture has them a whole lot more upraised. I prefer them that way. Maybe I need to boil mine and try to force them farther upright

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
