Finally got my confirm email this morning. Gotta love the arrival date: Thursday May 2nd, my birthday. So I guess I bought myself a future package of minis. According to UPS, my weight is around 28 pounds.

Here's my youngest in the box (Finally):

 

He has now turned the box into his own personal car:)

 

Ha!  When I got the big Millenium Falcon lego set, my daughter (7) loved to hide in the box and have me drag it around.

Wow, Happy Birthday! One day after me:) That's how I got away with all my bones 4 stuff, I told my wife they were my birthday present.

 

My wife while not a fan of rpgs or fantasy, etc tolerates my hobbies so that is fine by me. May is gonna be a good month for me with newest Wave of Wizkids Unpainted minis coming early, Ghost of Saltmarsh releasing later in the month & of course Bones 4 box coming.

 

Cute kid, I don't think my kids will pose for pictures since one is 21 & the other is 16. ::D:

You need to secure that better.  If you tape all the way around the box it should hold.

New unscheduled update on the Kickstarter page:

North American Zone Fulfillment: as of tonight, April 26, we have finished all orders that *did not* contain a Baba Yaga's Hut, a Tree of Despair, and the Frost Giant Raiders. In addition, the last container arrived yesterday and we processed and translated it. Today, we went back and started pulling all orders with these missing items. At the end of the work day today, we finished Wave One and  had started pulling into Wave Two. We estimate that there are less than 3000 orders left to pull for North American Zone fulfillment.

I can't believe how active this community is. I was a Wave 14, last minute backer this time because I'd just learned about Reaper, but watching for new info here over the past couple of weeks has spiraled into a hype-saturated obsession. I'm happy to be a part of this, and terrified of how heavy my Bones 5 box is going to be. 

 

For those who have started assembly, how much time have you had to devote to flash/mold line removal? I can't decide whether to just slap'em all together or take it slow and scrape each one first. I get very...meticulous when I scrape, not in a good way. I can spend an hour on one standard sized mini. Part of the appeal of the core set for me is having a massive library of primed, ready to go models to pick through whenever I get the urge to paint, but having to choose, scrape, wash, glue and prime each one individually might kill my inertia. How do people mentally process this massive project showing up all at once?

I see your youngsters also play with Imaginext toys. They're really great.

 

I don't have pictures of anything in my box yet, except maybe the minis themselves.

Yes, my youngest LOVES Batman, and every time they showed the commercial for that bat cave, he keeps saying "I want that". Drove Grandma crazy, so she bought it for him:) He also has an imaginext batman remote control bat car (well tethered, not really remote), and this HUGE bat mobile, batman figure, PJ's, sheets, anything with Batman on it::o:

I guess it all depends on what you want the mini to be. Is it a mook for a rpg? You really don't need to spend to much time on them vs a hero or memorable villain. Can you glue the piece on & still get to easily for mold lines? If not, then best to clean lines up first then assemble.

 

If your worried you'll get overwhelmed by the giant box of goodies coming, you can try & take in pieces. When you get your mini, do your inventory to make sure everything is good to go & once that is done, just take out the things you really wanna paint up & put the rest away till your ready to do em.

      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
