#Facebookchallenged here. What did they announce on fb?

 

The only thing I could find was about MOSSbeard going to retail in the fall?

 

There was a post back a few pages that they announced they're done shipping.

Has anyone else that got the Lost Valley had problems assembling the ankylosaur? Mine's tail seemed loose due to a smaller than ideal tab when I did a quick dry fit while inventorying, but that didn't worry me. When I went to properly assemble her though, I found out that the wobble wasn't caused by the undersized tab, but the tail and the body not actually fitting together properly. If it's universal so be it, but if others fit together right I'll ask Reaper for one of those.

 

 

 

Mine was also pretty loose.  Moreso than most of my other pieces.  Took a large amount of superglue and a rubber band to hold it in place.  I'm worried about it long-term though.

mine is holding fine, and fit together fine

Wait. It'll be possible to buy entire expansion boxes from the store?!?

 

It was after Bones 3, and yes they went fast.  There were also a few at ReaperCon  2017 as prizes.  Past performance is not a guarantee of future behavior, etc, etc.

My crate arrived this morning finally. It looks like rolled down the freeway for most of the trip between the UPS hubs in San Pablo and Sunnyvale. All the inner boxen are banged up to varying levels, but most of the figures are intact or easily repairable. Still counting the inventory. I just wish there were a packing slip. I'll have to check the pledge manager to confirm what I had ordered.

Agreed, the worst to inventory were bases, especially if you bought a ton like I did. All the pledge manager says for bases however are a bunch of random numbers.

DSCF0535.thumb.JPG.93240aba44ea3f34a30f872a01b6e4c4.JPGJust picked up my Bones IV package from UPS.::):

They managed to turn my box into a cardboard bag.:down:DSCF0529.thumb.JPG.a4571d5008339425a01c568ac97706e7.JPG

 

Fortunately, Reaper used good quality packing tape .

Otherwise my order would be scattered from the Mojave Desert to Denton, Texas.

GEM

I haven't even opened the box yet.

So uh I guess my bones will be delayed further. A train has derailed, hopefully the bones weren't on it.

I have pics, just haven't has time to upload them yet. So far the worst is some damage to the art book cover, Mammoth-man's broken adz, and severe warping of most of the Fantasy Terrain pieces. Possible missing parts but I'm not sure about that yet.

Still in process of inventory, but a couple of my Jade Fire minis have weapons that look.... odd. The spearmans spear is missing the head and the swords on the jade fire warriors swords just look blobby. Is this how they are cast?

 

Also have thus far, broken adze on mumlak, broken arm on stone giant guard, and broken leg on cave spider. Need to finish inventory/prefit on one more core set, all my add-ons, all my core set extras and fan favorites.

My package is on the delivery truck, a whole day early ::o:

 

Awesome, hope it actually arrives early (and you're home for it!) :) 

 

Sad to hear about the other boxes that have been used as pingpong balls, hope you guys get it all sorted out.

I used to have a job that involved creating technical drawings of machines that sort Mail (and parcels).

 

This damage is consistent with what can happen if those machines run amok. Normally, the boxes just whisk by, electric lights and lasers check that each one is level, in limits, oriented properly, sliding down chutes, whizzing along on roller beds, ...but once in awhile a jam occurs. 

 

And those robot arms and lift buckets are stout. And they keep banging away until a human can get to an emergency stop button. (As a matter of fact it is a big, red, button....several per machine.)

 

It’s not necessarily people doing these bad things to innocent boxes; it’s robots, Giant Stationary Robots.

Should be here in 30 min - 1h. And yes, I'm home for it.

      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 ...
