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?)

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

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.

 

For those of you who are still waiting for your Baba Yaga's Hut, here is a musical interlude to pass the time:

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.

      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
