I see other Canadians are getting notifications too. A little concerned that it is UPS but I'm not sure what "trade direct cross border" means...so maybe all the Canadian orders are coming over in one load and then being distributed?

Really hoping we aren't going to have to deal with UPSs creative brokerage fees....

It's looking like Reaper created a Zone 3a, Canada, and Zone 3b, US +

I'm in a group on face book and someone brought up that Dwarven forge KS and Zombicide will be basically at the same time.  If Reaper finishes quickly we might see a triple threat in the KS. 

Kickstarter wallet massacre...

So, The waves do really mean nothing. Rest of world wave 1-7, then Canada Waves 1-7, so Wave 1 US has turned into wave 15... ? With literally everyone else getting shipped out first?

"And Zone 3 is North and South America, the Caribbean, and related territories (including APO addresses). "

 

So, in theory South America, the Caribbean and related territories could be bumped up in line too...

From my understanding, not really.  Wave 1 and 2 are shipping bulk amounts to secondary distribution hubs, where they will then be picked and shipped.  So what they've been doing is putting 5000 of mall in a container, then 3000 crypts, etc.
Now I suspect they need to bundle all the Canadian orders to ship across at once for cost reasons.
Then they will start with wave 1 shipping directly from the US.  And Wave 1 US backers will still be getting their stuff (likely) weeks before Canadian backers, since Canada Customs will be involved.....

 

Again, that's just my understanding.

If that is the case, then the shipping update is false.

 

"We will be dividing backers into 3 Zones. Zone 1 is Europe (including the Balkan states) and Africa. Zone 2 is Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Japan, and the Pacific. And Zone 3 is North and South America, the Caribbean, and related territories (including APO addresses).

Zone 1 & 2 orders are being pulled first, in wave order, and will be shipped to the UK and Australia, respectively. From our new partners in these countries, they will be shipped out to individual backers. This should mean a great savings in VAT, taxes, fees, and other duties on your end.

It is expected that pulling Zone 1 & 2 orders will take approximately 2 days.

Once Zone 1 & 2 Orders are pulled and en route to their respective fulfillment hubs, we will begin pulling Zone 3 orders, which will ship from our Denton, Texas facility like always. By pulling Zones 1 & 2 first, we hope to have them arriving in the UK and Australia just as the first US backers are receiving their parcels.

Backers in all 3 zones will receive emails from the shipper with tracking information.

 

Canadian backers are reporting that the shipping origin is from within Canada, so the "all zone 3 will be shipping from Denton" is not true, or at least appears not to be...

I expect that the "Canadian Issue" is what they were sorting out that has kept them from giving an update.  What was in the last update was the plan then, but I suspect that a better option has become available.

So folks on KS are saying that in UPS it is showing as shipping from Ontario (the Canadian one).  If so it is a huge benefit to us Canadians who've been watching our dollar drop continually against the US dollar and dreading the tax bill on our silly big orders.  34 lbs of plastic minis....oh my....

Canada is only 932 backers, so that's only a couple of hours for them to pull everything, if they are getting anywhere near their rate from last time.

That would sort of explain their cryptic comment on the KS page.  They had to know though that people would be all like "YAY I got my notice"

That's what it's looking like. If that's the case then it's fine with me. Europeans, Canadians, Asians, AU/NZ, and ROW backers are all pretty small groups of backers. They also have to worry about import. have the longest shipping times, and didn't get free shipping.

 

This definitely wasn't what Reaper promised during the kickstarter, but it would be a good system to use going forward. Hope Bones 4 has something like this listed under "shipping".

 

I live one state over from Texas, pay no shipping or fees, and get my box a couple of days after it's sent off. Can't blame Reaper for trying to help foreign backers get their stuff in closer to the time we get them. Seems eminently fair and carries more than a token gesture of goodwill. :winkthumbs: :winkthumbs:

I don't mind changes, so long as said changes are communicated.

      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.
