My box has come.  Only 17.5 lbs and Mal not in retail box.  Only found a few problems so far.  Missing Frost Giant King & Queen.  One Fire Giant Warrior missing his forearm.  Still only about 1/3 way thru.

Hourly update, 146 orders were processed between 3-4PM CDT. A total of 575 wave 3 orders has been shipped so far. If the succeeding waves are close to wave 2 then wave 3 is about a quarter of the way done.

Me too, keep hopping up to check anytime I hear any sound that might be a box thud on the steps or a truck. My dog who barks at all odd sounds has been silent though.

To recap:

Canadian, Wave 3, Early locked in.

I can now confirm, as stated by others, I did not have to pay any Duties/Taxes/Import fees. UPS showed up, handed me just under 20 pounds of plastic and walked away (without a signature...).

 

The tracking number that a bunch of us Canadians got on the 19th, that tracking number became active once it got checked in at the UPS distribution center (in Calgary for me).

 

Hope this information relieves other Canadians!

Until I personally pick up my box at the post office and *not* get charged anything, I'm keeping my skepticism active. UPS has burned many of us.

My box arrived.  The cats had to climb on it and sit.  And then I had to leave for the day.  So it's now a nice cat perch.

Seeing all the cats inspecting the packages, I swear one of the secret ingredients to Bonesium must be catnip.

As many Canadians who said that they didn't get charged duties, I was also one who was still super worried that I would get charged anyways. Didn't happen though, they just dropped off the box at my door without a second thought.

Re: UPS. Agreed. That's why I have my stuff sent to my US P.O. Box. If Reaper have figured out how to prevent UPS's cash grab maybe I'll have Bones IV sent directly to my home. I'll see how Canadians fare this time around.

 

Re: Cats: It's worse than that; they ship the Bones in BOXES! :poke:

I agree with this. Both my son and I had our boxes shipped to a parcel pickup service in the U.S. I do that for all my shopping from the States.

I learned my lesson a long time ago.

I had a free sample microcontroller delivered from a manufacturer so I could tinker with its brand new (at the time), built-in MP3 encoder.

Free microchip arrived by UPS who demanded ~$35 for being my customs broker.

Never. Again.

 

Edit: Worth mentioning I was a highschool kid at the time with little-to-no extra cash on hand to pay the fee ransom.

Just hammering the refresh button. If I don't I notice it skips a few orders.

 

The page auto-refreshes; there is no need to F5 it. In fact, that's been discouraged as it sends extra, unnecessary traffic to the server and puts it under extra load.

      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.
