    Yeah. Canada has crazy import duties. I sold a set of bagpipes to a guy in Canada once and I couldn't believe the amount of tax he had to pay. It was something like 30%. That was $900 CAD on a $3000 instrument. Bagpipes are duty free in the US thanks to JFK. Now all you need to do is find a senator who plays tabletop games and ask them to make miniatures duty free. Japan has very sensible import duty if the items are for personal use. In 20 years living here I have only had to pay import tax twice. Both times it was a nominal 1000 yen charge.

    Keep up the good work. I suspect coffee is not enough. Have the Zone 1 and 2 shipments begun their journeys to the Euro and Asian/Oceania hubs?

    Hey Reaper mods. I hope you are going to allow people to post pics of their Bones arrivals here. If not here, on another thread. Those of us in Zones 2 and 3 who have to wait a bit longer probably want to gurgle over the pics of boxes of plastic.

    I guess the Bones is going to take around a month to get to me in Japan. At least it will arrive when I have some free time. I am just worried about it going through Australia. I live in a country with one of the most efficient delivery services in the world, but my stuff has to go through Australia. No offense to Aussies, but Jaysus.

    I know you guys are going to be busy, but could you confirm that Asian orders are going to Australia first, and are you using couriers rather than Australia Post? I don't really care about waiting extra days or a few weeks, but I have just had so much trouble getting stuff out of Australia, and Australia Post have always been terrible.

    So glad I picked up that Graveyard expansion. Along with the Mystic Circle and the Dragons Don't share set I bought a while back, it is going to look great on a Frostgrave/Mordheim table. I hope there are plans for some scenery-type items in Bones 4.

    I was the one who posted the video, but it wasn't any depth of effort. As a translator, researching is an important part of my job. Googling Evergreen ships out of Hong Kong pales into insignificance when it comes to researching the English readings of Chinese words in Japanese :) Give me painting miniatures any day.

    Put a beard on a pug and you have dwarf incarnate. Although for me the shih tzu would be the dwarven hound of choice. Speaking of pledges, I had completely forgotten I had ordered two sets of standard dwarves and the dwarven king set. All is good. I am looking forward to that dwarf jester and the mounted battle mage.

    Yeah. We all secretly know that Reaper has its own fleet of cargo dragons. Boats? Never.

    If you want to be an even crazier obsessive, you can see the actual ship live in port here. That's it on the right.
  11. Great looking mini. I will have to add that to my purchase list. In these days of NMM, it is nice to see some well-painted Non-Non-Metallic-Metal. I know it is called TMM, but Non non is more fun to say. :)

    I think Ever Sigma is your ship. According to the tracking info it is currently floating just south of me in Shizuoka prefecture, Japan, on its way from Hong Kong to LA. I can reach out and touch the bones from here :) http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:188571/mmsi:235009850/imo:9300398/vessel:EVER_SIGMA Edit... Ever Sigma is out of Taiwan. It could be any of these. Left Hong Kong on the 15th http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:409080/imo:9604122/mmsi:352135000/vessel:EVER LOTUS Left Hong Kong on the 13th http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:202731/imo:9241281/mmsi:235554000/vessel:EVER ELITE I don't know why I care, but it is fun to find.
  13. Great stuff. Black is really tough to get right...and man did you get it right.
  14. Dwarf! That's all that needs to be said.

    Thanks for the update, and thanks for not sticking to the Friday routine. At this stage I think you should give out any information as soon it is approved rather than wait for a self-imposed system date. Also Gods of Reaper, yer man ReaperBryan has been doing some masterful customer service over on the Kickstarter comments. Give the man a raise or at least a keg of ale.
