    Da Big Bones

    Thank You for giving the man his dues!! Really Really great guy!
  3. I went down to Reaper today & picked up what they had of my Kickstarter order. While there one of the amazing staff at Reaper (I'm a horrible person, did not get a name) let me in to look at their display room, & lo & behold, THE BIG MINI'S WERE IN THERE!!! (sorry. all I had was my iphone. Next time I'm up that way I'll grab my good camera & take some better pics of the whole room)

    No Bones yet.

    I just left the store after picking up my bones, paint & cases. I took some pics of the figures in the display room (I'll come back later with my good camera) & it is worth the drive to just see that. I'll be posting pics in an hour or two. Thank you to the gang at Reaper. Couldn't meet a nicer bunch of people. (I got to hold Kaladrax & it is HUGE!!!!!!)

    honestly, with the huge numbers of items that were promised and are being delivered in this kickstarter, I think Reaper is doing a pretty dang good job getting it distributed.

    I may be taking a drive up there tomorrow if I don't get called in. It's only about 45 minutes away & I can go visit my dad while I am there (The homestead is literally 10 minutes from Reaper's door)

    waitaminute!!!! I can drive up there & get what they have now??? I wasn't aware that was an option. (I don't mind waiting but it would be nice to get my pile 'O bones & get some practice painting in before the big mini's arrive.)

    USPS increased Shipping?

    ok, here is the deal. The Post Office has a congressional mandate to deliver mail 6 days a week, Mon-Sat. Something is happening in March where the upper echelons in the USPS thinks they can just cut out Sat delivery. Now, I have been a USPS mail carrier for almost 12 years now, and for the last 9 ir so years they have been talking about cutting Saturday delivery. While most americans could care less about mail being delivered on Sat, the special intrest groups that do care are loud & have lots of little politicians listening to them. I honestly think this plan from the USPS is going to bomb, and your mail will still be delivered on Saturdays when August comes around. I could be wrong, but thats what I see happening. & the Post Office wants your buisness guys. If you don't like the rate your getting, tell your local carrier you want to speak with someone in sales. they will pass that on to the PM supervisor, and if that person has half a brain (it's a gamble) they will pass it on to marketing and someone will come out and work with you to make you happy. It's not a garentee you will get a great deal, but all the effort is on us, the USPS, not you guys. As for customer service, I am sorry to say but it sucks in the USPS in general. This is the product of a generally unhappy workforce that is kept stressed out and in constant wariness of the changes coming down from up high. It's not an excuse for poor customer service, and it's something I wish was different. All I can do is try & give it to my customers and help where I can.

    I was working & there was no way I could change my pledge, but since I have 30 days to add to it I think I will get everything I want (plus I'm ditching Sophie for more big mini's) my total was: Vampire level all 4 paint sets (right now I have no paints.) Case Ebonwrath Deathsleet Clockwork Dragon Pathfinder Dragon Nethyrmaul For a grand total of $267.00 roughly $.90 a item. Beats any damn sale my wife has EVER found!!!!!
