Our experience is that no matter what service we pick, somebody had a bad experience with them, and somebody else says they're the best.

 

LOL, i guess that's probably true. But, objectively, DPD do provide a better service in the UK than the other service providers in that they provide information about what's happening to your order in their process, give you a delivery time slot and provide plenty of options to adjust what happens (reschedule, leave with neighbour, deliver to another address etc.) while the parcel is in transit. No other service provider in the UK (Parcel Force, Royal Mail, MyHermes, UPS, and so on) does that in my experience. How local DPD organisations/teams execute on that service protocol might vary, I guess. I've always found our local DPD guy to be excellent, so I'm hopeful.

I did too, however they neglected to tell me what service they shipped it under .....

 

No biggie, though I am used to tracking numbers being useless coming into Japan. I hope I get the stuff in a week or so.

And we're off to a flying start. with 37 orders out the door, they're now left with less than 1000 to go.

Maybe this has been said before and I forgot, but do we know if the EU orders were pulled and packaged in the US and the EU team now just puts labels on them and posts them? Or did they receive a container full of Bones and sort it into orders themselves?

I thought they only applied labels but ladystorms comment earlier makes it a little unclear to me.

They said Aus Post, but it looks like the service doesn't have tracking.

UK Hub is pulling the orders on site.

 

AU Hub is only applying labels to orders we pulled at HQ.

Auspost.com.au/track for auspost orders, they'll at least let you know when it leaves the country...

 

It can take a few days for things to turn up in their tracking though

No minis for us this weekend I guess....again. Sigh. I can't wait for this to be finally over. My colleague is getting a puppy on Monday and I already asked if I can tag along.

Is there another SNAFU at the UK base?

 

I was a little disturbed to see the tracker move on to wave 6 yesterday considering that I am in wave 5 and have not yet received any shipping notice.

Dunno if the tracker is down or there are issues at the hub, but I expect if you haven't had your shipping notice by now then there's no chance of delivery this week.

      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.

      Fair warning:
      There may or may not be IP issues with this one.
