Seems a little rude, but okay:

Love the trapdoor under there...

 

So is the building itself one solid piece of plastic?  Is there no way to get the roof off and put folks inside?

Very solid, and quite heavy, so probably not much space in there even if you cut it open.

Definitely need to come up with a way to get those chicken legs off. I want Baba's hut but realistically I'll get a lot more use out of a nice relatively normal cottage. Once the legs are off it'll be easy enough to figure out how to reattach them when I need a mobile home.

 

Just remembered I ordered some paint. I hope that isn't going to cause me problem when I mix them into my racks with what I already have. Shudders at the thought of rearranging 200 paints again.

Looks like I will be trying to figure a way to break the glue apart on that model.

 

Nice looking, wishing we had two, now - one for me, one for whatever Megan is planning for it come Hallowe'en. ::):

 

Maybe three, another for Brigid, when she is older....

I think the mistake Reaper made was shipping Canada out before moving everything to the other warehouse.  The week between Canada and the US stings a little more, I think.  

I concur - but I'll also bet they didn't expect UPS to start delivering so fast. My guess is that had they known it was going to move that fast, they would have held Canada up until after the move as well.

Edit: From my countries history with sudden border changes, apparently a lot of individual customs officers started to just let stuff through until the situation had normalised. But I do think there will be delays either way, a lot of people will try to get their stuff through the ports/airport before Brexit happens.

I've been wondering myself if this would happen.

Or possibly:

  • Boil and reshape
  • Set in warm wet sand: Since the reversion to the bent shape seems to take a while, I think this should be OK.
  • Microwave the sand up closer to the glass transition point of the PVC: The sand-water mixture won't rise above the local boiling point (because of the heat of vaporization), which hasn't caused me any problems here, though our boiling point is notably lower than yours. I'll need to check to see whether the PVC will be directly heated by the microwave radiation more than the surrounding water.
  • Then let it cool overnight.

 

Yeah, that could work.  I'll let you try it; let me know how it turns out. ::P:

Guess what? ::P:

Could I get a pic of The Rulers of Hell? I dont (think) I missed it?

The rulers of hell are both gorgeous minis, but there is a lot of assembly, so it's hard to get a picture.

Thanks!    Now I'm glad I put off ordering one.    I definitely prefer buildings that figures can enter.

From looking at super glue debonder safety data sheets, it looks like they're mostly acetone plus a bit of alcohol.

Wasn't Baba Yaga's Hut shown open and legless in one of the Reaper Live episodes? I kinda remember that, but I can't find the video right now.

 

I don't think it was ever open. I saw Michael Proctor painting the master back in CO; one big piece. I don't recall any update saying it would open either. While I'd like that, I imagine it would increase the cost. It would mean more sculpting, more pieces, and then assembly.

Ok, so you're both kind of right...  I think I found the video: https://youtu.be/a8-lU9NEMR8?t=160   They say the legs are removable, but don't really say that they will arrive at your door as  separate pieces  (Though in my mind it is kind of inferred).  Also, they definitely say the plan was to make it hollow and multipart, thought the prototype they show is solid.  I guess the plan got changed for reasons.

One possibility is that the Chinese factory packaging/assembly team decided to glue the legs in, but in the future, Reaper-cast huts (retail, non-KS stock) won't have the legs pre-glued. I know I've gotten a fair number of pre-glued Kickstarter bones that, when I found them at retail later, were no longer being preassembled. This might be one of those cases.

      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.

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