I'm quite happy with how the EU orders are planned to happen. Yes, paying VAT up front hurt, it was roughly 20% iirc, but if everything actually arrives at my door without extra charge I will be quite happy.

Paying upfront in smaller incriments feels better than having your fulfillment joy dampened by a sudden large fee.

 

I agree, better to pay the VAT upfront and then not have to pay a handling fee for the privilege of the Royal Mail calculating the VAT for me.

On a more positive note, is it wrong that I'm looking forward to all the pictures of forumites cats sitting in their new boxes? ::P: 

I think my Hubby's cat was disappointed with the size of the last KS box. It was fairly narrow. Nonetheless, he sat in it until he threw up in it. :rolleyes:

I don't have a cat, but based on what everyone has said, I will fit in the box :;):

Oh wow you're so organised!  I can't even begin to think about what I might paint first- especially with so much already on my shelf of shame XD I do know that I keep going back and looking at the Dark Reach / Dreadmere expansions, so if I had to guess, probably something from one of those!

(I'm not the fastest painter, and haven't really picked up a brush since my wife passed.  Yet I still buy models and paint.)

My Bones 2 cost me 42$ in extra fees including handling and taxes. Part if what was crossed was that they thought it was for resale and not personal use. But you can claim that on income taxes anyway.I definitely appreciated whatever method was used for 3 as I got no extra charges.

I used to subscribe to indie publishers in the USA, but when you add conversion and extra shipping (2$ became 10$) and I would be paying 19$ for a 7$ book. If it got stopped at the border it would automatically add another 11$. Free trade is a bit of a lie, really. It doesn't help small businesses.

Is it too late to join the kickstarter?  I was hoping to do the $15 pledge.  I see the Pledge Manager is shut down as of July 2018.

Yes.

 

At this point, you have to wait for retail releases.

Yeah even the late pledge option closed a long time ago now. After the kickstarter has shipped (at some point in February) we might have a better idea of when the retail releases will be scheduled. Which item was it that you were interested in? Some of the sculpts are available in metal if theres a particular model you're wanting for something?

Be aware that the stranger the model is shape-wise, the longer it will take to release.  Goremaw from the last KS just released in the past couple of weeks.  "normal" sized/shaped minis I expect will be released in monthly batches after all the KS fulfillment is complete.

Yeah, I was so happy to finally see Goremaw!  Now I just have to save up the  moolah to buy a copy...

Does anyone ever create a checklist for the minis in the core set so that when we go through them we can make sure we have everything?

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
