Any chance packages are shipping out of Rockwall, TX?

it would really take something unusual for us to uproot our entire operation to Rockwall in the next couple of days. 

 

All of the stuff* is in Denton, all of our equipment is in Denton, and all of our people are in Denton.

I think you can probably safely draw conclusions about where the ship from address will be**.

 

 

 

*I mean some of it is about to not be, very soon, but technically even the UK stuff is still in denton as I type this.

 

**Denton.

Two things.  

 

1. All I hear in my head when you say it is "Denton, The Home of Happiness".

 

2 Since this is my first time actually having a KS shipped to me I was wondering if it will be treated like anything shipped from warehouse?  Do i get the same email with tracking info?

Backers with 'non western latin' characters needs to edit their address?

But at least some of the characters listed ARE in the 'Western Latin' code pages. 

 

Is the fulfillment system using different SW than the normal shopping cart system?

 

I have the 'å' character in my address, and that has always worked on normal orders.

No, it is not the same as an internet order.

Yes, you will get a tracking email.

It is our experience that those non standard (from the English alphabet) characters cause errors on shipping labels.  If possible, help us get your label right and change the characters or returned packages will likely happen.  I don't want returned packages that are preventable by a simple address edit on your (generic you, not specific) label.

Yes, it has different software than our normal shopping cart.

 

If you chose to email help@reapermini.com about this project, you MUST identify which Kickstarter project you are communicating about.

There are seven different kickstarters and regular internet orders that all filter through that one email box.  Asking about "my order" or about "my pledge" or "bones" does not allow us to help you without back and forth email exchange.

 

DON'T be that person.  

 

Help@reapermini needs the following information to assist you:

Your name (first & last), your shipping address, the project you are asking about (or specify internet order if applicable)

YOUR ORDER NUMBER <--- almost the most important piece of information out there

the email address used in the pledge manager and in kickstarter, if different

a brief (seriously, if more than 2 sentences, it is too long) description of the issue.

NEVER send attachments or images unless requested

 

If you failed to lock in your pledge at this point, no matter your reasons, you will have to wait for the SOD (replacement/corrections) process after fulfillment is over.

Thanks. 

Replaced the 'å' with 'aa'.

For Norway at least, 'æ' can be replaced with 'ae', 'ø' with 'oe' and 'å' with 'aa' 

But for Norway, Sweden and Denmark, it won't matter much if the recipient name, address or the town is a bit 'off' and maybe missing a character or two as long as the postal code is correct, it'll take a really, really elfed off postalworker for the package not to get it to the right place. 

I once got a package with 'Gadgetman' instead of my name... 

(The lady at the local post office giggled a bit about that... )

Ladystorm is right. We oversimplified the nature of the problem, because 99.99% of our backers really don't need the technical information.

 

Our database stores the å just fine. My paperwork (internal documents) print out the å just fine.

 

We export our data into one of multiple possible other databases, as needed by the shipper - that is, it goes into UPS's database if we ship UPS, or US Postal Service if we use that, etc.

 

In our experience, SOME of these do not import these characters well, and we end up with å being changed to a string like "&Aring;" (or variations - I know the Portuguese character à never seems to import properly). This is usually because of an encoding issue, such as UTF-8, UTF-16, or some other database encoding system being used - the character is, after all, just a string of 1's and zeroes, and the encoding type define what each string of 1's and 0's is going to render as to be human-readable. If you'd like to more about encoding, I suggest Google. But the upshot is that while we try to get everything right, encoding differences seem to wreak havoc with non-"US-English" letters more often than not.

 

Because we do not want ANY packages returned because of PREVENTABLE errors, we greatly oversimplified the nature of the problem and just ask everyone to not use characters that are not likely to be found on a keyboard made in the USA.

Does anyone know what service Reaper will be using to ship to Canada?

 

Thanks!

If the "shipping tracker" type thing does get implemented, would that come in the standard KS update as well? Or would it be somewhat aside from saying that shipping has begun?

[ADMIN]

this is the time of the project when light hearted banter and chatter  in this informational thread becomes a problem for us.

 

Please, please refrain from using this thread for the fun conversations.  

 

Please let us answer serious questions and address concerns without the attempts at humor that derail the conversation and net us angry emails and confused phone calls.

Question on that.  I have seen some serious looking questions.  Then 30 min later they are gone.  Where can people go to ask these questions they have that are being deleted?  I only ask because I have seen multiple people ask the same thing over a couple days and all end up being removed.

It is kind of strange.  I get deleted all the time and for the most part agree with it..but a couple comments Ive made didn't seem to merit it...its puzzling...

Reaper Miniatures 5-time creator about 7 hours ago

We're pulling and shipping, but the information we wanted to have for the Update isn't available. Sorry for the delays

Pulling and shipping what at this point? Are Zones 1 & 2 out the door?

      28mm metal Renaissance-style skeleton army for war games based on art by Hans Holbein, Durer, and such like. It's a cool style. It's only got a week left and I wasn't able to find another thread for it. I'm not affiliated but thought it looked cool and backed it.

      About this project
       
       Trio is born from my videogames experience, is born by my idea to create a variegated set that include different types of subjects including animals, armours, textiles and skins of various types. The busts of this campaign are all handsculpted by Alberto Acquaviva and me and all are in resin cast. Through this busts i want to show you how the wisdom can be beautiful and delicate, how the courage can be aggressive in front of a trial and how the power can corrupt your face...and your soul. All this collection busts are composed just by one piece except Heero, the courage that is composed by three parts. The collection has been conceived to be easy to assemple and ready from the unboxing to be painted. Is a good trial for both beginners and veteran painters. You can play with colors, lighting effects or freehanding on open surfaces, on little details or animal mantles. So,I hope my project excites and involves you like it did to me. Thanks for reading. Below you'll find the description of all characters, their size and more details on this campaign.
      Regarding the shipping costs there are two price ranges.  
      First range: shipping up to 4 figures, 5€  
      Second range: 5+ figures,10€ However be informed that the more models you'll purchase, the bigger will be the discount applied, so your shipping will be anyway cheap.

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
