Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

According to Reaper live, they're 60% finished with shipping from the UK hub, and the 2nd container will be arriving tomorrow (so today I guess?) for them to continue shipping. So at least they're getting through those boxes quickly once they reach the hub.

 

 

No notification here yet, so I guess my stuff is in the second container.

Wave 1 and locking in fast means nothing for EU.

Nevermind, I hope I will get my stuff soon.

They also mentioned in the Reaper Live that they will NOT be putting extra core/expansions up on the site until AU at least begins shipping and that June was currently planned as the first month of Bones 4 releases.  I know some of our overseas friends were worried about these.

 

Thanks for mentioning this.

The cobra is not  alone in gate marks.  Underside of Argent's wings has ejector marks.  Just scrape away apply a little bit of putty, sand if you can.  Done.

Mine arrived today.  It was a more modest order than most people here have been getting.  I have just finished inventory and everything appears present and correct.

 

The only damage I found was in a couple of places on the eaves of Baba Yaga's Hut.  These are easily repaired, but Reaper might want to give some thought to the way it packages its Bones Black products in future, considering their more brittle nature.  More irksome was the sloppy assembly that left a gap between the rear turret of the hut and the main building.  That will take a fair bit of green stuff work.

 

Overall, though, I'm very pleased with what I got.

Just in case anyone's tracking this:  I got a wave 1 order delivered to New Zealand via a reshipper on Tuesday.  Have any of the Australasian direct orders landed yet?

The boat does not get to AU till the 17th. So said Reaper on the Livestream last night. 

 

Why did the reshipper take so long. Did you have any of the three?

Try being a US Wave 1 backer & getting your order around the same time the UK/EU boat got across the ocean. Of course I had the trifecta of doom, but it was annoying.

How much was shipping? Might try this for future unannounced projects (tm).

We started going through my order yesterday. Core set is inventoried and glued, afterwards we just looked at some of the other stuff, mostly the expansion sets.

Mumlak's weapon is broken, but that's the only problem so far. Even the chicken shag stands well out of the box.

Will make sure everything is here today.

I was fairly slack getting it reshipped:  I probably could have had it a week or two earlier.  I assume there's three orders in particular that delayed people?  I haven't been tracking this the way I normally do : )

I split it into 3 separate $200 NZ orders for boring tax reasons:  this was my first one from Wave 1.  Looks like they're averaging out between $50-$75 NZ for reshipping, depending on package size & weight, with a transit time from the reshipper of about a week.

I did this for Bones 2 & 3 as well.  Apart from anything else I get so much less worked up about it if I'm controlling the shipping myself, and it's worth any additional cost just for that level of control for me.

Oh, and it's using the NZ Post YouShop service for the reshipping.  I looked at other options but they cost the same if not more so I went with the easiest option.

      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.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
