So, I'm 2 days and 25-30 pages behind. Is there anything noteworthy, or is it all the usual 'poking each other with sticks while tracking over-caffeinated hamsters' type posts?

I offered my services as Reaper's NEW PR(mouthpiece) Guy:)

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

Survey Time!   I'm going to let yall have a wee bit of input on the next Expansion Pack I feature for the updates. I have parameters I have to follow, so it isn't super open for yall to

I am taking a small break. My back is aching a bit, haha. So far things generally fit together well. The worst offender yet is the T-rex's back. Others may take some bending, but it was done manually to a point of needing little greenstuffing, if any. 

 

In inventorying, just zombie shark jaw missing thus far for figures and who knows, it may be in a box somewhere. Will contact them at some point about that if not, along with the paint. Should do it all as one lump for lowest pestering. 

 

I like the frost giant raiders. Not my favorite of the KS, but they feel fierce and well detailed. The caribou antler is fragile, but intact. And the non-broccoli detached base? Way good. It is similar style to the January Owlbear's. 

 

And the sprues are seeming to be a wise move. Some of these pieces are fitting together really really well, and mold lines so far have been lower than I've seen on older models. Occasionally one is placed in a not-perfect spot, but they've been manageable. Really glad I bought sharp sprue-nippers during a hobby shop sale recently. 

 

It would be great if @Ratmaster2000 had his offer taken! Reaper is suffering on PR right now, and it doesn't seem that they are malicious or trying to be deceptive, but a mouthpiece who knows social media would be useful. Or just coordinating communication. They like their updates, but their method is leaving some grumps that make me sad to watch. I'd like to share the unboxing joy with you good peoples!

Note: this is technically not a poking stick. It is actually a spider stick. But I don't believe it's time to escalate things that far. Maybe in a couple more days though.

 

What kind of monstrous spiders do you have that you need a stick that long to deal with them? :blink: and how do I get some?

 

On topic, I got super excited when I got a shipping notice from Reaper UK yesterday. Unfortunately, it wasn't the Kickstarter-  it was my housemate ordering minis on our Reaper account as a surprise present for me ::o:

I agree with this in part.  That said, we aren't the  8 year olds in the back seat who can't understand "We should be there in 8 hours."   Followed later by "We got in a traffic jam,   8 hours just became 12."   We were hoping for shipping to begin yesterday, because that's the information given.   While personally I'd rather they spend their efforts on getting them shipped, I do understand the desire for a quick update.   "We hit some delays,  we are working hard to get everything going.   We will give further updates once we have a new estimate."   It wouldn't make everyone happy.   It would resolve the feeling some have due to the target being stated, unmet, and no word.

 

The video did say the 8th was an estimate.

Indeed.  Their target was Monday.  Many are not angry that they missed said target, but would like to know when the new target is.   While I'd rather they spend the time it would take  to update us on getting the work done, I understand the perspective of others who disagree with me.

Ok cool. I had the impression you were saying the opposite.

I think it best to assume Friday or next Monday will be the start date. Because the daily empty hope is just not fun. And if those days pass and nothing, then we may need a quick guess by Reaper as to when they think it will start. Because we have to remember, it will be half days of shipping, so it will take a lot longer than we are use to with previous KS.

Cave spiders, just like in the Darkreach expansion. I guess you'll have talk to Reaper about how to get some though.

I have my Bones!!! I was right about UPS not doing the delivery but was way off on the date. Almost didn't pick up the mail today because I didn't think anything would be there. Managed to get it in the house and a lot of it looked through and camouflaged before the wife came down to see what I was doing. She only saw the core set, a few choice picks from the expansions and various scenery. I started off with showing her the evil dwarves because she has a soft spot for dwarves. Haven't looked at a lot of things closely but so far it seems good. Need to check the paints now that I see people here had some problems. I only got set B.

Nah, it wouldn't be worth it here. I'm 6' 3" and my box is only about 2' x 1' x 1.5'. I deliberately never bought a lot of the really big stuff. Core, all the expansions and a few other things. I think I had the second smallest parcel of all the weights people here said.

Please be aware of not throwing away the sprue of this guy too early, that little bit at the top of the sprue actually goes on the bottom of his left foot. It's easy to miss, so keep it in mind.

 

That's got to be one of the wierdest reasons for making a sprue I've seen. I glanced at the giants but never opened them yet. I've only painted one stone giant out of all my other giants and now I have more frost, stone and hill giants to do.

      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
