IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

On Reaper Live last night, they said that it was being delayed by Australian Customs having to fumigate the containers. Apparently the ship was infested with stinkbugs :blink:

 

 

 

Can someone explain to them that this is just a toy?

Might have been bugs on the ship and the customs folks decided that fumigating the exterior was a useful precaution, too. Australia has had serious problems with invasive species and they take prevention pretty seriously.

 

The marmorated stink bug is native to China, Korea, and Japan and has become a problem in the US over about the last 20 years. It is thought that the bug got here by hitching rides on cargo. There are apparently populations in Texas, so it's also possible that the bugs originated there if they're inside the container.

I live in KY, and we get stink bugs all the freaking time. They get inside the house, and they don't seem entirely afraid to just fly straight into your face for no good reason. I hate them so much.

Has anyone else found that the snake statue is brittle? My son dropped it to a carpeted floor from a metre and the head snapped clean off. Seems a bit of an odd texture compared to the other models and very heavy. 

I have found it definitely heavier, but I hadn't noticed it being brittle. I haven't dropped it, but I haven't exactly been gentle with it, either. You might have gotten some sort of miscast, maybe?

Its not a miscast. The Bones Black material is known to be more brittle. If you read through the thread you’ll see several people have received various Bones Black minis with In transit breakage. Something very rarely seen with the original Bones plastic.

 

We get better detail minis, but at the cost of lessened durability.

Tracking now says my package left England yesterday, but isn't scheduled for delivery until the 31st. 

Also, it's 'Pining for the fjords, so excuse us if the package stays a few days in a location that doesn't make sense' PostNord that's supposed t do the deed here in Norway.   

The Pledge Manager links to UPS Interlink, which of course doesn't recognise the tracking code.

Any news on timing for a Bones 5 Kickstarter or what might be in it?

Only that it will have its own thread to discuss, which won’t be this one.:rock:

Ah, nothing is as fun and as full of potential as a freshly minted Bones Kickstarter Enthusiasm and Commentary thread! ::D:

 

 If you want to get excited about a Bones Kickstarter, go back and skim through the first few pages of this thread... it really is a blast!

There's something wrong here that's not entirely right...    

 

My phone just Pinged...   

There's an 8Kg package waiting for me at a local pickup point. 

TODAY!   

But it entered the country yesterday afternoon...   

And have been moved 500Km to a sorting center, then sorted and passed onwards the last 60Km... in less than 24 hours?   

Did they hire someone who's actually competent at the job?     

 

Oh well...  

It's only 1.5Km from there to home... uphill all the way, and I took the bus to work today...

      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
