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.

Well, I am - I have NPCs based on several of the minis that I am waiting on. (Heck, I could really use the fire giant jailer next week.)

 

So, I am gonna guess that, yeah, I am not the only one.

 

For me, Bones are the figures that I am most likely to use, rather than just paint up because it looks cool.

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. 

That is also part of the problem. North America was supposed to ship at the same time. We were supposed to get notice when shipping started. Well Canada backers are getting shipping notices. As far as wave 4 that's been reported. 

 

So. No US backer has gotten notice which looks like canada is shipping seperate from US contrary to shipping update. 

 

Also no no update has been given that wave 3 has started. Despite wide spread speculation based on the facts that there has been no notice and Canadian backers have gotten shipping emails, there has not been any word from reaper. So unfortunately you as z Canadian backer getting shipping info will probably not do much to placate.

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.

 

They are in the US still. The email I received said so: " An additional ship notification with a scheduled delivery date will be sent when your shipment is received by the destination country. "

That's what I thought but had no way to confirm...

As someone who has backed both of EFS Studio's kickstarters, Shadows of Brimstone and a host of projects that failed to deliver at all, I'm really not seeing anything here to complain about.

 

although......

 

I do disapprove of the fact that a bunch of ragamuffin colonials may be receiving their bits of plastic before I do. There is a generally accepted order to the universe, an acceptance of how things work and America First is ultimately just not cricket. Rule Britannia

Got my shipping notice; not happy it's UPS, I'd prefer USPS or fedex for being (Almost certainly) cheaper once you factor in duty. I'll survive, though.

 

wonder if we should start a new thread for 'got my notice' bragging

 

EDIT ; I'm canadian. re-edit - I'm wave one.

I may be wrong but in past KS it was mentioned that they had to fill a truck to ship things? I'm guessing if they want to send Canadian packages to Canada they have to fill them all up and send them together, then they get distributed by the shipper? 

I may be wrong but it may not work to send 5 Canada packages then 5 US then back to Canada.

Would you have them all painted by then??  It's only 34 lbs, that shouldn't take too long.....

 

I don't know if I can get them all painted by then, but my 6 year old daughter would love to help out.  They may all end up with cutie marks and/or pretty pink hair, though.

      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.
