Shhhh it's all a big secret. 

We don't talk about the missing miniatures... just in case.....in case....well I don't know.....but we don't talk about it alright

 

You still didn't get your Bones?

Odd since you're in the country where it ships from.

Did you email Reaper about it?

 

I would say, too bad if a pallet is lost, repick your order and ship it..

Yes, my bones (and those of my gaming club mates - all included in my order), were on that missing pallet. I was hoping to hear from Reaper that the missing goods were being flown in, but given the lack of info that's been forthcoming I assume the pallet is on a boat. So maybe September. In fact, given that it's me + Kickstarter, it's almost certainly the case that someone will attempt to deliver my bones on the first day of my two week vacation in Italy, so by the time I'm back in the UK the bones may well be on their way back to the hub. It may be October before I finally get my mits on them.

On the plus side this means I'll be able to focus some of my Halloween fun on painting up the Bonesylvanians, the minis I'm most looking forward to receiving.

 

Very frustrating to receive them months after the hype has died down. I don't mind that I don't have them in hand so much as I mind missing the collective 'squee' moments. It's a bit like watching your family opening their Christmas presents together and then a few weeks later you go off to the shed to open yours. Nice to have something fun but not as nice as if you'd been able to share the moment.

Well, keep us in the loop on when you do get your Bones, and maybe we can work up some "squee" moments. Maybe on the Google hangouts, or something. True, we might have to fake the enthusiasm, but doggone it, you're worth faking.

 

That, and it helps us keep your Kickstarter Karma at bay for the rest of us.

While that sounds like a simple solution, it really isn't.

 

There is not enough of the product at the UK Hub to pull the order from there.  There is not enough of the product here to pull the order from here.

Sure, perhaps we could have pulled part from each place and sent multiple shipments, but the probability for errors was much higher than putting all of the product at one location and pulling it together.

 

We ran through many scenarios and decided shipping the pallet was the best of all the bad options.  There were no good options.

I am waiting for word on the status of the pallet. Both the replacement one and the one missing.

 

I'm really not ignoring yall, I just don't know any thing more.

I hope it will be resolved quickly. I totally understand though that it takes away from the whole experience though, since everyone is busy with bones 4 now. I'll be happy to cheer you on unboxing when you finally get it!

Hip, hip...  Hurrah!!  Brits need their Bones!  (And all the other EU hub people who don't start with "B")  

 

Someone on the Bones 4 comments requested that the info also show up in the Bones 3 comments.  Thought I'd pass that along.

      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.

      There may or may not be IP issues with this one.
