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.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
