Sometimes they have the new pics even though they are not available yet. This has happened to me before when I had an order and got the older models, so I know why he is concerned.

And sometimes they are slow to put up the pics.
I don't want to pay double shipping.
I'm just waiting on someone to let me know exactly which ones are new. Better to do it right, than to do it twice.

What I need to know is which paintjobs you have, and I can tell you whether those are the ones we have, too, or whether you'll get a different one.

I enjoy collecting minis, I'm really trying to keep up with your different paint schemes, but it's not easy.
I'm trying hard not to miss any, because once their gone it's almost impossible to track them down.
So any help you can give me would be very much appreciated.

I will second this.

Despite the many metal "enthusiasts" complaining about LE's paint jobs, many pre-painted minis lovers put the LE paint jobs at the top of their lists.

I think the LE line is excellent!
They are well worth the effort to collect them.
Unfortunately, Reaper doesn't focus on the Collectible aspects of the Hobby.
Their focus is on Roleplay, which is fine, unless your trying to keep up with the different Paint Schemes.
The Pics help, but they're not 100% accurate, and they're also unorganized.
If someone could take the time to fix it up a bit. (Hint, hint)
One Numbered Pic for each Paint Scheme, and maybe some kind of notice every time a new batch arrives.
Anyways, like I said before, any HELP would be greatly appreciated!

Is it me you're lookin' for?

Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?

I think that you're asking for this at a really bad time. Reaper are currently dealing with a massive logistical challenge of getting everything related to their very successful kickstarter campaign in order. Reaperbryan mentioned that they're currently sold our of some of their learn to paint kits because they've seen a three fold increase in orders since the kickstarter. I doubt that it's just learn to paint kits either. So not only are they having to deal with the kickstarter, they have more than usual normal stuff on top of that.

I also think that the information you're asking for is not easily obtained, this will not se something someone's going to do in five minutes.

Of course I'm not Reaper staff and this has very liitle to do with me, but I think you're being unrealistic.

Hi
Maybe it is unrealistic, I don't know the situation over there at Reaper Central.
I'm thinking the last batch of LE minis should be listed on an Order form or a Shipping invoice.
But, what do I know?
And it's only been two months since I first asked, barely enough time to get anything done.
but my intention is not to rush anybody,
Just gently reminding them every once in a while, so they don't forget about me.
Thanks for caring!

Bottom line: With 17,744 Backers, 240 minis in Vampire, and over 30 Options available to choose from, We're producing 4,258,560 minis *just* for Vampire, before you count the Over 250,000 Optional figures (Extra sets, and Dragons/Giants, etc.).

4.5 MILLION figures.

in what is just barely 6 months.

The factory is quite busy, and is not available at this time to add new LE figures to the workload. When the Kickstarter is over, we are planning at this to get new variants on existing figures, as well as use some of the KS figures for new releases in that range. But until then, not only are all of our personnel tied up in managing aspects of the KS (including the rennovations to the building, which have begun) but all of their personnel are working on that project.

We appreciate your enthusiasm.

And be nice. EVERYONE.

I'll bet that your heart swells with both pride and panic when you look at that number. ::P:

At this time, no. We are loathe to hire for what we consider short-term work, and would rather simply beat our current crew harder for a few months than have to fire people in April.
