Here is the best alignment that I had.

The pieces are the entry arch, DDS, Ring and Blacksting.

 

From here, the entry arch looks like it would fit on the ring edge too.

Shipping label generated!

I got my wave 3 shipping notice earlier today as well. It says delivery for Thursday; I'm supposed to work this day, but I WILL be calling out. The patients will survive without me and would understand if they cared about plastic toys as much as I do.

My stuff got here today. I just got done digging through it all, so far I seem to have everything... and a little more. I backed for Paint set B and got Paint set A as well. Also, all of my paint bottles seem to be labelled properly, so there's that.

 

The only issue I have found is with the Mossbeard Treeman's right arm, the socket for the hand is... a bit warped?

I'm pretty confident I can clear it up and get the right fist in there, just kind of odd. There also appears to be some leavings from the mold around the wrist area of this arm. That said, this guy is huge! I love it, just not sure where I'll find room for it...

 

Same goes for the Roc, another biggie I'm not sure I have room for. I think it and Mossbeard were at least half of the wait of my 9.6 pound order.

 

All in all though, I am very happy with what I got. Time for some washing and boiling.

I got mine today! Everything looks great! Man, Bones Black shows some crisp detail on the smaller minis!! 

 

I also got both paint sets despite only ordering Paint Set B. But my Argent is missing :( 

 

i emailed Reaper already so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Now that sounds like a plan!

 

Had I not been ill last week I'd be doing the same thing.

I could write you a work note. Boneiosis sounds like something horribly serious.

I too also work Thursday (night) but I'm supposed to get my bones today.

 

I should be sleeping while I can ('at' work right now actually) but I'm too excited.

No news yet on the EU container it seems :) When will the next Reaper Live be, hoping there'll be updates there?

They mentioned in one of the updates they had a tracking code for the ship container which they would send out in a Bones update, but it wasn't sent out (giving me the idea it was useless to send out as the container has landed).

 

One can't help but wonder :) and wait, that is.

Thursdays are reaper live, and you have to hope that a kind US person will ask about the EU ship....as most of us are in bed...as it is Midnight UK time, it airs.... last week no one asked about EU and they didn't update regardless on the EU or AU in the Reaper Live.... although last weeks...was odd anyway.... :)

Usually they brush the topic (pun intended) in their Reaper Live, but last week was silent on EU indeed :)
I hope they have some info to share with us soon, I don't have any nails left at this point

Ships carrying the Bones 4 pledges: We're moving soooo sloooowly...

UK customs: Hold my beer.1

Me: *selfishly hopes the EU can "pull a Canada" for Bones 5 and get all our stuff first...*

(1 Assuming the container arrived on the 24th, as per previous information)

I asked once, I can try to do so again. Unless I get sleepy. They never said they would share a tracking code though, on the contrary, they specifically said they wouldn't share such information. An employee did this in the past and was punished for it.

 

Is today a holiday in the UK or is this just a German thing?

 

Edit: they have the may figure already in stock in the UK hub, which gives me hope though. Can't really imagine that one catching a boat even earlier than our KS rewards.

      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
