  1. I just created a UPS account. No deliveries scheduled for my address... I've got my fingers crossed for you--there's still a lot that could be going on with your order, things like UPS not providing accounts with shipping information that was entered before they were created--but that's definitely sad. I hope you get news soon!
  2. Have you checked the pledge manager? Lots of people aren't getting emails. You may also want to make a free UPS account. My pledge manager hasn't updated to show that my packages have been shipped. I haven't received an email yet. (Not even in spam!) Even so, UPS is telling me it's got two packages on their way, estimated delivery on Tuesday.
  3. Oh, right--the triple inventory threat. We got all three of the limited-stock minis and our order did get packed and shipped. So far signs are still looking good for later wave 1s and wave 2s.
  4. Huh. Poor Reaper. Out of curiosity, I logged into the UPS site and looked at my expected deliveries. We have two Reaper packages coming. The first is 11.6 pounds. The second is 42.0 pounds. (don't have any info in the tracker or anything like that, yet. It's only living on UPS.com.) What have we done?! Filled a box with rocs, apparently...
  5. Backer 39 here. Mostly luck I imagine, but since KS lets you stalk creators nowadays, it wouldn't be a bad idea to follow Reaper so you get an email whenever they launch the next KS. If you happen to be watching email, it might give you a fighting chance of getting a Wave 1 pledge. (although I still haven't gotten mine shipped yet, so it's only gonna help you so much...)
  6. Nothing here, yet. Looking like we might have a Friday box.
  7. I'd volunteer, but I don't think Bryan would give me a good reference. I kept breaking all his work! (That whole "lives nowhere close to any part of Texas" thing notwithstanding)
  8. We started our order in the early afternoon on 9/10/17 but apparently didn't finish submitting it until 11:57 PM. (eastern time, GMT -5 at that point I think) If they sort by timestamp (and not just date) or if they sort by date and last name, either way we're gonna be toward the back. I'm sure in our excitement we'll say something when we get our email...
  9. Oooh, orders are moving! Exciting! Hope they get the tracker working again--but I'm wave 1, what do I care? (Kidding. Sort of...)
  10. Definitely nothing here. I think we're all wondering if Reaper's been talking to Red Deer's Chamber of Commerce about a deal for the advertising.
  11. 31.4 pounds. Considering it had you in it, that seems a smidgen light...
  12. I just got an email the other day from a kickstarter I backed in 2015. They half-delivered and a "new" group is jumping in to pick up where the old group left off... Compared to that, and to most Kickstarters, Reaper's been fine. They've been good, even very good! I think it's worth remembering just how amazing Bryan is at keeping people up-to-date and how spoiled we were for the early Bones campaigns, but at the same time he never really enjoyed Kickstarters so much as he survived them. His method didn't seem very sustainable. He was going to break sometime. And a lot of things we
  13. My wife and I are on other sides of the argument. I want to get my bones as soon as possible! She wants to get them as soon as possible provided it's after she finishes her projects for class, so sometime next week. I tell her, your half can wait for you to have time to play with them... she says she'll play with them regardless so it'd be better if they didn't make her procrastinate her work. I don't think I'm being very compelling.
  14. No more ReaperBryan - he parted ways for other exciting things. And Ladystorm retired. I suspect that they're readjusting to not having some formerly prominent employees right now. Hopefully they'll get into the swing of things and be back on the easy-communication-train soon. I don't think Reaper is trying to bamboozle anyone. Right. That's why I was saying they've got the void--between ReaperBryan leaving for Secret Weapon and Ladystorm retiring, that's two of their main community outreach folks. But even if Bryan were still hanging out in Dallas, I'm not sure he would have
  15. I doubt ReaperBryan would have popped in to give us news right now, since he would either be A. setting up, B. packing, or C. trying to figure out why neither of the first two options was being taken care of right now. Random thought--things might be getting packed up but if the last step of the process isn't ready yet, we won't be seeing any movement. It could be that they're working but not everything is set up yet. But in general I agree--Reaper's lost a lot of great communicators and they haven't really begun to fill the void. I do think ReaperLive is their first at
  16. I'm going to be in trouble when I discover that I need to boil a table.
  17. We've tried the rolled grid thing and it sort of works! 2x4 is awfully narrow but you might be able to make grid tiles work, too. Something that provides a solid surface and can then be picked up and moved has worked pretty well for us.
  18. I remember thinking, "Eh, I think I can live without Mossbeard." Then they posted him with a scale model and, well, that was another thing added onto the pledge. Man, he's ginormous! Me too. I've been playing a bit of Starfinder now and Chronoscope minis aren't such a great fit. But it's so cheap, why didn't we go in for it? Argh.
  19. There might be some perverse joy in trying to figure out if you're the actual last person to receive their bones!
  20. Thou that'll bring out the "Why is my legs not glued on" anti-crowds!! I can just see it now. "This is an outrage! The picture clearly shows the hut painted and assembled! Reaper doesn't have a leg to stand on!" "I can't believe my chicken hut didn't come pre-assembled! Reaper needs to foot the bill for the glue I had to buy!" "How lazy are they? When I got my hut from China, it came with the legs already on! Those folks at Reaper who aren't assembling anything anymore need a good swift kick in the pants." "Attempted to eat the chicken feet so helpfull
  21. One possibility is that the Chinese factory packaging/assembly team decided to glue the legs in, but in the future, Reaper-cast huts (retail, non-KS stock) won't have the legs pre-glued. I know I've gotten a fair number of pre-glued Kickstarter bones that, when I found them at retail later, were no longer being preassembled. This might be one of those cases.
  22. Put me down as someone else who sees the waves as useful. Even if they don't end up being a week apiece, it provides a reward for early support (which builds enthusiasm for the kickstarter) and it's a great way of managing expectations and tracking how far along in the shipping process Reaper is.
  23. I'm all out of rage at our Canadian brethren. They're just too nice to be angry at. Is that enough to qualify me as outraged? I might have some envy left, though. We even have part of a table cleared off!
  24. Oof. Yeah. My post office is open from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM... makes it real easy to get there while employed... we don't usually have a problem getting things delivered, but when we do, sorting things out is bad. I know many of the national postal services are cutting back hours, but you'd think they'd aim for some evening hours somewhere on the schedule...
