Yeah, there's a different Darth Vader quote I've been hearing in my head, but spoken by Bryan, which makes me giggle.

I'm pretty sure he's not Luke's father....

 

 

I know that I'm nobody special, and you have no reason to listen to me, but everyone please relax. I'm sure Reaper is doing the best they can; a month from now everyone will be playing with their new toys ( or at least waiting for their local mail carrier to drop off a large parcel on their doorstep ).

 

In the grand scheme of things, there really isn't anything to get all worked up about.

 

Now, everyone go sit in a corner, gently massage your earlobes and repeat after me:

 

woo-saa

One thing I have noticed living in the US is that people here really do not have the same patience that I am accustomed to.  I can understand people being frustrated however.  I suppose I am just used to things taking a long time to arrive.  Most of the time, any products ordered from online back home required international shipping and it was not cheap to expedite materials. I can also understand how people want to be kept up to date and are eager to get their money worth.

Just to reiterate, few people are complaining because they lack the patience to wait for their stuff.  They're complaining because they were told "I'm ten miles away.  I'll call you when I get into town and let you know the plans."  Two hours later, they're still waiting for the call.

Not trying to get anyone mad or anything especially since I am not invested in this KS but it seems like everyone is worked up to just open their box of minis and stick it on the shelf.

 

Is anyone truly waiting for their new Bones to start painting?

 

I really want to be on the next KS but not sure I have the patience.  I get antsy when I have to wait more than a week for something off the Bay of E.

Right.  We also got " We're pulling and shipping, but the information we wanted to have for the Update isn't available. Sorry for the delays" but that has just confused more people because we heard Canada folk getting emails from Waves other than 1.  With nothing else being said it is just making people freak out over things that are so small in the grand scheme of things.  We know our stuff is there.  We know they began to do something with it. We know it will be in our homes soon.

 

I am just awaiting official notice on what is happening now so I can stop refreshing every 15-20 min. :)

Just a tip to keep the conversation civil - it is almost never productive to dismiss peoples' concerns as meaningless.

With my work schedule of being home for a week, then away for a week, I always have a 50% chance that my package will arrive when I'm not home. Now if this takes anywhere between 12 and 18 days, I'll be home!

 

What's interesting is that this is a long weekend in Canada, and it's unlikely that out shipments will cross the borders this weekend, so Canadians will be saved from the additional holiday wait! Though for others, May 29th is Memorial Day in the US, and though Reaper may have the bulk of orders done, they may not be complete by that day.

Heh, no matter what the real problem is, I am just going to blame Customs...

 

As in 'Customs took all the packages out of their boxes, then repacked them in the wrong boxes'

'Customs accidentally swapped containers on us'.

'Someone shipped Haggis in the same container, and now Customs tells us that the whole shipment has to be destroyed'.

 

All of which are problems that have actually happened.... (Including when the bits and pieces for a castle shipped over from Europe being repacked in the wrong crates... so no one knows which bits and pieces go where... for an entire castle....)

This is more like a Christmas morning thing.

 

And once received, it becomes a post-Halloween bag inventory thing.

There are a few that I'm waiting for to use in a game.  Some of the terrain pieces....Goremaw....They will likely be used before they are painted...They might get a base coat....maybe....Hmm I should buy more brown liner...And blue...I might need a lot for that worm...

Mayne this will placate some of you:

 

i am a wave 1 backer from Canada and just received a notice from UPS. In short, Reaper has passed on my information to UPS and this might mean a handful of things:

 

1) Reaper is just printing the shipping labels, but not shipping mine yet

2) Reaper is already working on wave 1 fulfillments and is shipping mine

3) Something went horribly wrong and I can't fathom what

 

Take it as you want. But at the very least my shipping labels are now ready. You don't do that unless you're close to shipping.

UPS prints it own labels for tracking. 
Which means if individual people are getting notices.  That means UPS has possession of the packages.  BUT they have to be broken down and sorted.  So while the packages might be in UPS hands they are still at the hub.

Reaper part in this if you saw the big pallet picture on their website.  That is how the packages are transferred or picked up by UPS. 

The only question remain is.  Are they in Canada now?  Or are they still in the US...

My Nephew and I discussed this at length last night as he works for UPS.

      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.
    • By Gadgetman!
      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.
