Beginning to look like we will see non Hut/Tree Wave 14 ship before Remaining Wave 2+ with hut/tree. Bummer. ::(:

 

Most likely not, wave 14 is still likely 4-6 days away. Either way I'm dead last with all 3 of the trio and wave 14.

Maybe I'm trying too hard to find a silver lining for you - but having your town be the one showing in the Tracker with Wave 14 and 0 orders remaining would be kind of hilarious bragging rights...

Has there been any word on if the last shipment has made it through customs and is on the way to/arrived in Dallas? I know it made it to port.

 

I think the last info we got on that was Thursday?  Would be nice to know.  I'm wave 2 and have a game on the 3rd where I really could use these minis....

Ok, so the best Unicorns-and-Rainbows scenario is that they get the container tomorrow or the next day, right? I know worst case is a couple more weeks because of Customs but I'm trying to stay positive here.

I missed Bones I, got the Core set and a little bit more from Bones 2, got Core set and a number of add-ons from Bones 3.

I did not get the Core set this time, I cherry picked (some stuff from the core set, add-ons - glad I chose Dreadmere and the Barge, glad I did not get Argent ... a bit miffed I got Baba Yaga's hut and the feet not removable, but still happy I got it).

As I backed a large number of other mini KS projects, I have a huge stash of minis, I guess I do not need more dwarves, halflings, humans, orcs, goblins etc. It's not really Bones fatigue, but it gets harder to justify spending money on more stuff I don't need and will never paint (because my painting speed simply cannot keep up - I finish 3 minis and another game with 80 minis arrives).

 

I will look at Bones 5 ... and I probably will find something, but I guess it will be less than during Bones 2, 3 and 4.

 

I went over the Bones website and cherry picked a number of minis last week ... (yeah, another halfling - but the wizard with the glasses and the rabbit, something special I think ... and so on). Out of interest, I also went through all the Bones miniatures and ... was very surprised. There were 25 pages of miniatures and on every page there were at least 3 minis I had already painted. I guess I have painted over 100 minis from Bones 2 and 3 (and some from Bones 1 I bought).

I'm pretty sure I'm going to try migrating the Roc to a clear flight pole, but I suspect I'll need something substantial and rigid. Ideally clear, still. Anyone got any particular suggestions?

 

I would think any sort of acrylic rod... you might be able to get an acrylic straw for cheap with a good diameter that could support a good weight.

 

Alternately, if you really want to make sure that roc has all the support it needs, you could repurpose one of the "plain" base rollers from GreenStuffWorld... wouldn't get you a lot of loft, but that bird could be made out of lead and the "flight stand" wouldn't care.

If I go flight-stand instead of the rocs, there'll be some work involved, like how to embed the rod and such, but I like the idea of getting him some serious height. Probably just do a clear acrylic rod - cutting it for appropriate height shouldn't be much of an issue. Though the idea of creating a solid cylinder of clear resin with the roc embedded in it is somewhat tempting, TBH. I just don't know how I'd be able to manage the logistics of it.

Regarding the Roc: My wife found a horizontal line on the underside of the tail piece that almost looks like the piece was set down on an edge while still warm. Unfortunately, this same line shows up on my Roc models, so that seems unlikely. If you have this, it's unlikely that asking Reaper to replace the piece will help.

 

I also have a faint line across the underside of my Roc's tail.

I don't know that I have the energy to fix it, but I have already started the process of green-stuffing the joints between the wings and body, so you never know.

when you say how to embed it . currently, i've cut up and been resculpting much of the privateer storm raptor to use as a phoenix.  instead of the curved tail that sits on rocks, im totally redoing the tail.  im just going to have a small hole for a GW flight rod to stick into. and the base it sits on, that rod will be glued into it. if i want more support on the base, may have the base of the rod go into some apoxiesculpt, that will harden around it.

 

Regards,

Not that it is a huge issue for me, but do not forget that there were some of us (including I)  in Wave 1 that didn’t get their order yet either for reason of including a Hut in their order.

I reckon minimum we're two weeks away from minis in hand if you're waiting on that last container (as I am). It still needs to ship by rail supposedly, go through Dallas customs, get to Reaper, get unloaded/organized, then everything needs pulled/shipped, and of course travel time to your home. Then of course you have to acknowledge that two weeks is a sunshine and rainbows estimate with a month probably being more realistic.

Sorry about that, I thought they made it through all of Wave 1, at least. Just wow.

Sadly not with the Hut quantities. Very glad I didn't order it.

Wow! I didnt know the hut was stopping wave 1 orders. were the quantities that low or was the demand high? I do some slavic/russian fantasy gaming and baba yaga is a central figure for evil but I didnt go after the hut.

      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):
       
      About this project

      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 ...
