No change in my tracking. Still showing as departure scan in fort worth. Sniff sniff.

I got mine in Ontario today (technically yesterday, Friday afternoon) after the second UPS update Thursday. I've had negative things to say about UPS in the past, but no issues this time.

 

One oddity was the packing slip. I like to use the packing slip to verify contents, but it only had the first lock in, which for me was just Core Set, Mythical Monsters and the Froghemoth. So, basically, missing the 33 other things I added on later. Fortunately, It looks like everything else is there, but I'll need to do a more detailed inventory. Still, it was worrisome at first.

 

I didn't even open all the boxes (except for Ma'aldrakar, I didn't get the retail box so I had to pull it out to dry-fit and see the size for myself). Ma'aldrakar looks great, I really hope to get around to painting it one day.

 

Particular stand outs for me are the aforementioned Ma'aldrakar and the awesome looking froghemoth (I also dry-fitted him, he likes being assembled so he's staying together for now, he can glare at me until I paint him). Sophie looks amazing, I bought two in case I ever wanted to paint up one without the wings, but I love the lantern on the wing, it's a great touch.

 

I really like the Solar as well. I remember almost passing on the Solar after seeing the first released render, but I'm glad I got one, it'll probably be one of my first paints. It is a little smaller than I expected, but a perfect size for a big angel. I had originally thought one might make for a good storm giant wingless, but it's closer to ogre sized. In fact, it looks fantastic next to Izzy's Oni, part of the great looking Pretty Deadly pack. They don't have the same number of toes, but their bare clawed feet do look similar enough that they could be king and queen of an exotic race.

 

The crusaders are a great looking group, I like that they share an emblem with Sir Forscale. I hadn't really noticed that when I ordered them. The Savage Avatars are nice, particularly the gorilla, I think he'll be high on my list to paint. The only issue will be whether or not to glue on the t-rex skull, he looks fantastic both ways. I'll probably end up with skull on, I'd like to paint up a colourful t-rex hide, this would be a perfect opportunity. I didn't spend much time with the dragons since they are in pieces, but Kyphrixis really caught my attention even in the bag, where I assembled the head and tail. The paints of course were another fantastic buy, and the sketch book looks great.

 

So yeah, consider me very happy I spent way too much money on another Great Big Box of Bones. I'm ready for Bones IV.

@Solauren @Suden  Or any other Canadian Backers that have gotten their shipment from UPS

 

Just to confirm (or not?) there was no Duty or Import charges for you guys?

Seriously that is my biggest scare right now. My bones are apparently on their way (ETA May 30th), and the thought of having to pay Duties on top of the nearly $800 CAD I've already paid is getting to me.

But if there's even a slim chance that Canadians are getting their Bones without Duties... that'd be massive to me! :D

I regret not getting  T'raukzul and while I skipped the cemetery expansion because I don't have space for terrain pieces I think it looks great.

Totally unnecessary; I prefer to catch my own Bones, than you very much.

Ah yes, now swells the inevitable chorus of "why didn't I buy the ..."

Yup.

 

RE:--autographed boxes: Very cool!

I highly doubt I'll get one though. If it was being sent to 'ChaosWolf' then yes maybe, but I don't think anyone at Reaper knows me enough to connect my real life name with my forum handle.

This is also one of my concerns considering that it *is* UPS cross-border shipping we're talking about (they're notorious for their customs clearance fees). Worsened by the fact my shipping address is the post office itself.

 

Next week will be "One of those days." :wacko:

oh the agony!  My package is IN my town, cruelly trapped at the local UPS hub... which is closed today so I can't go pick it up.  Sigh.  Must...practice...patience.

Say it again, Corporea: Patience is a virtue.

Not right now it isn't!!!

The UPS truck showed up, we opened the door and he handed us the package (23lbs) and walked away. No import charges. I felt silly holding my credit card waiting for the import duties. I wasn't charged anything.

As funny as that sounds, you know you're going to stay up for as long as it takes, just in case it's true. ::P:

I have no idea what ever you mean.

I'm with you in the same spot.  So close and yet so far...

I had no duty. A "small" box, though. I confirmed by confirmed by phone. The key is theorigin on the label - mine was Toronto. If yours was Texas, then maybe you'd have duty. If a Canadian order was missed in the original pull and sent later, they might have issues, but I dunno.

      About this project
      League of Ancient Defenders (LOAD) is a two-team 2-6 player skirmish board game with stunning miniatures and intense gameplay modeled after popular battle arena online games. The vile forces of Chaos have invaded the island kingdom of Atlantis, humanity’s last hope. Players must leverage the unique abilities of their Heroes as they push three lanes simultaneously toward the opposing faction’s base. By destroying key enemy objectives, towers and spawn points, they will force the opposing team to abandon the battle in full retreat.
      RE-LOAD will be available in English, German, Spanish and French. Selection will be possible when the Pledge Manager goes live after the Kickstarter.

      About this project
      Welcome!
      We would like to invite you to our first on Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign dedicated to miniatures! We made a few before on other platforms, but now we are also here with new models and recast offer for all old ones. All of miniatures presented below are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. However you can use them in any other game you want.
      During our previous campaigns we showed our possibilities and strong orientation for reaching customers needs and vision of miniatures. Also projects presented in this campaign were started some time ago and developed with The 9th Age community to be as good as it was possible. Our very talented sculptors, artists and manufacturers are doing all their best to provide you with the best products possible. We have hope, and strongly believe, that you will enjoy what you see below.
      Your support is very important for us. While we see that our products are still needed we will run future releases. So thank you in advance to give us that possibility.
      How our process look like:
      1. 3D sculpt
       
      1b. 3D sculpt of alternative options (as option for bestsellers)
      2. Printing than casting resin models
      3. Professional painting (as special option)
       
       
      All 3D sculpts has already been made. Most resin molds also. We need your help to invest in missing production molds and materials to finish all open projects. Also stretch goals will help us raise funds to make some alternative versions and options for our miniatures, which for sure you will also like as base versions.

      Hello all! It has been a longtime dream of mine to have a line of barbarian miniatures, and I am finally going to try and make that happen via crowdfunding. This is the preview link to my campaign that has been approved and will launch on June 1, barring the need for massive overhaul or other catastrophe (perhaps invading barbarians).
       
      Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One: Personalities (preview mode)
       
      Thanks for looking!
       
      edit: I am not sure how to get the Prelaunch tag to show in the thread title?
       
      EDIT: Campaign is live -
