Does anyone knows if they are just sending US orders or to all latin american as the said in wave 1

The current shipping push is for all non-Canadian America. There are just a few more US backers than non-US backers in that group . . . (Could I be British with that level of understatement?)

Shipping label received! But I won't believe it until I see the package actually moving, as I have all 3 of the cursed trio...

As you can see, the roof is pretty solidly on there. There might be places where it's glued on, but I'm very much doubting that it could ever be taken off.

As you can see, the legs themselves are glued on. However.... if it's superglue, wouldn't you be able to freeze the figure and then pop them off? Though I'm not sure how the cold will affect the Bones Black, so caution should be used.

well, if we allow an average of 3 orders per backer, we are about 1/3 of the way through wave 1

 

 

I had 13 orders.......................was that not the norm?

Hmmm, given the number of orders, and the number of backers at the 100$ level, plus a fudge factor for the wave 1 1$ backers, we may see them finish wave 1 today. Seems to be an aveage of 1.2 orders per backer, now that I look at the actual wave levels.

 

1,664 total wave 1 orders shipped as of now.

I remember them saying on last nights (and last weeks?) Reaper live, that because it was a process of heating up, inserting, then cool down the model, thats why the legs are glued on. Which probably means NO superglue. Maybe get under with a pry bar/screwdriver after a hot water bath and see if you can get it out that way?? Or just coping saw them off:rock:

Someone a while back froze their free Efreet so that they could remove the front piece and re-glue it.... They ended up snapping the mini in half, said that freezing it made it more brittle.

This was on the Reaper facebook group.

Since we already had one T-Rex comparison, here's another.

 

I just got the Batman game from Monolith, and I couldn't resist the batcave expansion with the T-Rex. The two beasts are remarkably similar in size, though the Monolith one is taller and has a much thicker tail. I'm guessing this is down to gender, but no way am I going to try and look under either tail to verify.

 

Because of perspective, whichever one was closer to the camera looked bigger, so I took a couple shots, with a human-sized bones guy for scale:

I really wanted to back that game, but I just couldn't afford it. I'm surprised at how big the T-Rex is, though.

Freezing helps when you try to break a superglue bond, because it reduces the shear strength of the bond. But that means that you need to be able to generate shear stress. With a socketed joint like I assume this is and the flexibility of even Bones Black, that can be very difficult.

I wouldn't worry about it. PVC is pretty good at low temperatures in mass. But that isn't to say that you shouldn't worry about it. If you do it and break a mini, that's on you. :poke:

 

I would probably avoid the liquid nitrogen, though.

      As I backed Brayan's previous KS but never got my files (I got a email in regards to this KS) but a quick email response & I had my file that I backed + a bonus file. Love the look on the minis. The goblins can be new PC gobs for ReaperCon We Be Goblins. Love the Oriental dragon as well.

      Hi all,
       
      Next month (probably the 14th) we will launch our latest project called Dragon Masters. Here's a little preview in the form of some of the concept art and renders created.
       

       

       

       
      We will share some more pictures soon!
