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

I'm getting a bit excited about it myself. Haven't done much painting since the holidays hit and keep thinking I need to get a bunch more painted before the next avalanche hits. I've done fairly well with painting almost as many minis as I bought the last few years but each Bones KS throws that balance way out of whack.

I'm really trying not to get my hopes up too much just in case of last minute delays but its hard not to get a little excited.  Glad I'm in Wave 1 and confirmed my order early so hoping I'm towards the front of the line.

 

I'm really trying to be patient but as it gets closer it gets harder!

**looks at apartment storage**

**looks at current minis stash**

 

I'm going need to do some reorganizing, or end up with minis under the bed. Otherwise minis will be taking over the guest-cave/storage room/harry potter closet. 

 

I'm in wave 1, but shipping will probably be such that there is a delay at the border. I do hope that post goes smoothly, or I can arrange to work from home for a while when I see the tracking go to Canadian Customs. Otherwise I end up with a huge box at the 7-11 up the street. 

 

How many pounds is this thing going to be? For uhh... a lot of it. Quite serious question, for sake of me carrying it. Do I need a little red wagon? A Big Burly Manslave... I mean.... Sir Cyr for carrying it?

My box from the last one is about 11x20x16".  I'd recommend the little red wagon, Sir Cyr might not want to carry it more than a block or two.  

 

I am going to need to procure a little red wagon then. Or see if I can borrow the moving dolly from the apartment manager.

This was the size of the one from Bones 3:

Im willing to bet you'll be surprised at the size of the box. Their packers are really good at Tetris. I was expecting a much larger box last time, and was underwhelmed by the size when it got to me. 

 

Though, I did order more this time... maybe I'll get the refrigerator sized box that featured in my dreams during last fulfillment :lol:

Storage will not be a problem for me.

I can see it now.

 

Girlfriend opens fridge, sees Bones Dinosaurs staring at her.

 

***Honey where are the groceries?***

 

Me: Whistling...

 

Girlfriend opens wardrobe, Argent, two Barges and a Mammoth stand proudly on the shelves.

 

*** Honey where are my clothes?***

 

Me: Coughs and pretend not to have heard anything.

 

Grilfriend opens Kitchen Drawer, it is filled with shroom people, Drow and Gnomes, a Zombie Shark in the centre.

 

*** HOOONNNEEEYYYY!!!!****

 

Me: Runs..

… last Bones KS, we got a Mal'Drakar box. Which ordinarily would have held a pair of Mal'drakars, in their retail boxes.

Mine had one Mal, in retail box (I squee'd), and .. everything else, tetris'd in there somehow. Including pretty much every dragon, and a couple of large whatsits and a lot of bags of little monsters, some demons and a whole cohort of mouselings.

 

I'm pretty well convinced there's a secret test they make all the box-packers take; something about ten pounds of miniatures in a five pound box...

It's probably a certain score in Tetris. 

I have always admired the skill of the box packers for Reaper. I pride myself on my own abilities to pack compactly, but I'm not sure I could do their job.    Amazon packers could learn a lot from Reaper's.

I agree! My most recent order when it arrived I almost didn't open it right away because I didn't realise it was from Reaper - I was expecting a bigger box! Then I realised it was from Reaper and opened it- only to realise I couldn't get them all back in there to take them home (I have most of my mail delivered to work where there's always someone to sign for packages)

      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.

      "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
