I seriously do think a table saw would be ill-advised when cutting bones. 

Bone saws really are best . . .

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

you can try saws.....or... you could try doing the same as the assembly only in reverse, and heat the thing up before pulling the legs out.

Just boil a large pan of water, take it off the heat, dump the thing in and leave a few minutes before taking it out and pulling. 

Should not be too difficult when it's all soft and rubbery.

 

This assumes they did not use glue when asssembling. why waste money on glue when cooling down does the trick?

 

I'm pretty sure I saw glue around the join in several photos.

They said in the livestream yesterday that the legs were heat treated and glued in place, and the recommendation was to cut and add pins if you wanted them to be removeable in the future. 

 

Kind of disappointed the hut doesn't open up, and the legs don't come off, as that was a selling point.

Im bouncing off the walls. My package was sent out for delivery 4 hours ago.... and Im 4.7n Miles from UPS center. I know they take the LONGGGGGG circuitous route but do they trucks stay out for 8 or more hours in the same drive?????

 

FWIW you can sign up for an account and get a smaller 4 HR window.... Between Now and 3:45 Ill be 400 Bones richer

 

The answer is yes, they do.

 

Time spend reloading a truck is money lost - they pack those puppies up, then send them out for the day, if they can.

 

I used to live just a few blocks from UPS - on the return trip, so would get my stuff at the very tag end of the day.

 

For the record - the local UPS is very good at their jobs, and went out of their way to be accommodating on multiple occasions.

 

Since moving to Westbrook we have been having our packages held at UP for pickup - I work less than a mile from the UPS pickup point.

 

Which means I will be able to pick up and open the Bones before Megan even knows they are here! Mwa ha ha ha ha! :devil: The snakemen will be mine!*

Cooking generally makes it easier to pull the drumsticks off the chicken. ::):

:unsure: I feel a touch of regret getting the Hut now. I want everyone to be able to revel in the lovely chicken-legged goodness with me! 

 

As penance, upon its arrival I shall determine what is required to remove the legs from the hut. FOR SCIENCE! 

 

...Well, I was probably gonna do that anyways, but now I'm gonna try really hard to make it happen. Mythbusters style if necessary! AKA if all normal attempts have failed, add more explosives and try again*! 

 

*Note: no actual explosives will be used in any attempt. I know, I'm boring like that. 

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D 

At some point, not long after we get Baba's Chicken Hut, I will be pulling out Campaign Cartographer and making a floorplan for it.

 

If it comes out well I will post it somewhere.

Just out of curiosity I went and looked... AND I HAVE A SHIPPING LABEL!  Woohoo!  Only 16.6 lbs.  Think I've got one of the smaller ones so far.. Oh, and I finalized on 9/11, no idea what time.

Our bones are moving! UPS is updating. Looks like those of you who thought the truck hadn't arrived were right.

 

Still haven't gotten any notification from Reaper though. Nothing in email, nothing on the pledge manager. Man! You'd think once Bryan left his code would be safe but no, I keep finding new ways to break it even after he's gone...

      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
