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

So I'm later than I had hoped to be.  I have content for this week, but let's pick the second January update (fourth Friday 1/25/19) Content. Five options.  Use the Like this post options to cast

Ok, folks, I know the enthusiasm is winding down with Pacific shipping over half done, but let’s see if we can push this thread to at least an even 1200 pages! ::D:

I have to admit... I never did a full inventory of my Bones 4. I never had the chance before I had to pack them up for the move.

 

I did the preliminary inventory. I checked to make sure all minis were there (they are). I looked over the gigantic minis I bought to see they had injection ports I'll have to carve (no big deal tbh). But I never got the chance to check for the two-left-arms issues other people occasionally have. And given I'll need to be unpacked at the new place in order to do that type of inventory... I don't think I will get the chance before everything closes.

 

Which is fine. Everything looked fine during the initial vague scan of things. Most people's pledges came out fine. I'm just assuming mine did too. It's a fair assumption.

Well AUS Post lied. It is not coming Tuesday, the package arrived today. I will open It later and do some checking.

How terrible! You should call them and demand that they take it back so that they can bring it back Tuesday like they're supposed to! ::P:

The good news is that even if something is wrong, you're dealing with Reaper so they got your back. ::):

Dance of Death is going to be a real elfed job to boil and set correctly. 

 

 

 

yea i dont' have a pot to get them fully in to boil, and the connection between their wrists is so thin that it just bends back. I've set them up and shoved a balled up papertowel between their heads to try and force them into position by leaving them like that for a few weeks, because boiling isn't working

I got a response on my B4 replacements email I sent, yesterday! I wasn't worried about the delay as I know Reaper CS is prob swamped with requests. Just nice to know it's in the que.

Unless you've glued the parts together, it shouldn't be necessary to boil more than a couple of parts. 

The wings doesn't need boiling in order to make the two dragons fit together, and you really don't want to boil the base. 

(And if the base is out of whack, it would be a good idea to do that first, then the rest.) 

I've dug out a spool of 2mm copper wire(laquered 'transformer' wire. Very rigid stuff) and will use that to hold everything in place.

the problem is that if they aren't together, you can't really tell how far you need to twist them when they're in the cold water. It's not easy to tell they're bent until you attach them and see their heads are facing far away, and it's very easy to not fix them if you boil them, put them in cold water, and then attach them together and realize it didn't do a darn thing

Is this the thread to ask for pictures of things from the kickstarter?

If it is I would like to see the following:

Agramon with extra parts.

Modern Scenics.

 

Thank you to whomever posts the requested pics.

Hi, still wanting to see:

..Agramon with extra parts.

..Modern Scenics. At least the smaller pieces and the doors to the shipping containers.

..IMEF Bulldog #305 with extra parts, but closer than Ratmaster2000's picture as my eyes ain't what they used to be.

And adding:

..Blood Nebula Mercenary #326. Including if there's any extra parts.

 

Thanks again!

oh, ok! I think I can help you with the chronoscope stuff

 

So here's the containers, all 3 use the same door and as long as you don't put glue on the hinge they open and close.

So, blood nebula, grey/red is the bones version, he was preassembled and had no optional pieces. Pink is the metal using the metal optional bits. Looks like the bones version is a tiny bit thicker than the metal.

 

Bull dog has 2 right arms and two left arms, they friction fit so you can swap them after painting. It also has 2 pilot options and a closed option. Mine is built closed, not perfectly sure what I did with the pilots at the moment.

I'm thinking that for the Dance of Death at least it's going to be necessary to use a hair dryer and probably ice cubes [possibly a spray bottle filled with ice cubes and water] to get the pose right.

Dry fit the parts, add tape, wire, splints, props to things and then heat and set.

      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.

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