I just got a shipping notice, it looks like they are finally starting to ship international orders.

Likewise. YAY!

 

 

Sweet.  You both Battlecry level?  Haven't received mine yet (Showdown).

Is there tracking, and do we know yet if they are using USPS?

They've never mentioned what they are doing for customs declared value on these split waves, have they?

Apparently my FLGS backed this and they had boxes and bags of a bunch of extra sprues  for sale.  If nothing else, everyone in here that backed is getting a ton of plastic.  To my eye it looked slightly less crazy than the giant Ogre box.  haha

My wave #1 shipped on Tuesday. It left Michigan at about 4:00am on Nov. 18th which means it would have arrived at the local UPS depot between 10:00am and Noon the same day.

I still don't have it. Did I mention that UPS depot is in Buffalo, NY?  :down:

I'm 10 units in on assembly so far and I love the models. The detail is great, and the assembly isn't as bad as I feared given the reviews out there from the first backers to receive stuff. 

Of course it's hard to be anything but ecstatic when i've got little veritechs in my hands.

Yeah I have a fair number built and they are growing on me. The only major issue I had was that on the scout pod (the one with the big wing antenna on the top) many of the little sensor antenna gizmos did not really seem to fit at all to the spots on the body. Those parts are pretty dang small as well which makes it a challenge to reshape them to fit in the holes better.

 

The arms fit on some of the battroid (sp? the standing valkyrie) is a bit iffy as well especially on the option to get both hands holding the gun but manageable with some trial and error dry-fitting.

Yes. Actually, it wouldn't help now. The package is on the move (in the wrong direction). According to tracking, it escaped Buffalo and found its way to what I assume is a refugee camp for packages in Syracuse, NY.

 

At first I wondered why they didn't just leave it in Buffalo and wait (the package is going to Niagara Falls, NY). Then it occurred to me: with the flooding they're expecting as the temperature climbs into double-digits over the next few days, they might have cleared out part of the warehouse to avoid damage to packages.

 

The other thought that came to me is that since Niagara Falls is basically snow-free, maybe they're going the long way around Lake Ontario. It seems woefully inefficient, but perhaps a company like UPS has a policy that if weather keeps shipments from moving for (x) number of days they seek out an alternate route.

 

In any event, My mini mecha have gone from being ~20 miles away to being ~160 miles away, so unless that's a racing tauntaun I guess I'll just keep waiting. Mind you… I AM kind of cold…  :devil:

How come I can't seem to quote?

 

What I did for the recon regult was to cut the plastic of the antenna slot on the pod so it was flat horizontally. It didn't look perfect, but it fit.

 

Also the legs for regular regults suck. You can't make it look like they are just standing. The best pod legs are on the missle and scout regults, so you may want to switch up legs with them. Also the regular regult pod pod halves don't go together smoothly, the best thing to do is cut a bit off of the top of the circular section of the bottom of the pod.

 

Another thing I noticed to be careful about are the destroid legs. On the same frame, one set of legs has foot peg slot going sideways and the other going front to back. And of course you can make a mistake and join a sideways leg half to a front/back leg half, making it so neither foot will fit in it.

 

I wonder if they will ever fix the issues with some of the frames sometimes down the road. Not to mention they could with some adjustment make a few less parts. There was no need to make the legs be in 2 halves for the destroids.

Yeah there are a lot of improvements they could do to these but I am doubtful we will see any. Really I am just hopeful that they actually release the rest of the kickstarter rewards (wave 2.)

I'd be interested in hearing what they've put for a value on the customs forms for orders going to Canada when someone actually receives theirs.  As far as I know they've never said how they are doing that...

My friend got his recently... that's a lot of parts! He gave me a bag and asked me to try a few. They are much smaller than I expected.

 

They are both bigger and smaller than I expected. I was sorta thinking they were 1/285 like Btech. I think this is inline with Robotech though? The Zentradi mechs were somewhat larger than the humans?

 

Kinda rough looking up close due to the sanding and what clean up I have tried to do on the seams but here are some of mine built up:

      About
      Welcome to Black Hallows, where light and dark wrestle for control, where travelers must be on their guard as even the most innocent looking old woman could be hiding a secret... let us introduce you to the Townsfolk of Black Hallows.
       The Townsfolk is a range of 14 non-player character miniatures, crafted from the highest grade, lead free Pewter (This quality of metal is normally only used for masters). They are available in either 28mm or 32mm and will come with their own base toppers and plastic bases. They are ideal for use in role playing games like D&D, Pathfinder, etc. Use them in your war games or collect and paint them for display.
      28mm miniatures have 25mm plastic bases and 32mm miniatures have 32mm plastic bases.
      We are also offering any of the characters in a 75mm resin version (see below). 75mm resin versions have a cast resin plinth.
      All of the manufacture will be done in-house at Z1 Design, which means as soon as the first batch is ready, we can ship. So early backers can expect early delivery. We will deliver in order of backer number and it is possible that we will ship the first batch before Christmas.
       The future of Black Hallows -
      We are currently working on further characters including both townsfolk and hero characters. The main Black Hallows game is scheduled for release in 2019. This will include 4 factions and the option of an extensive range of scenery and buildings.
      We also have an author working on the Novel of Black Hallows.
      We have an exciting year ahead of us!
      PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MAIN BLACK HALLOWS GAME TO BE RELEASED IN 2019 WILL USE 32mm MINIATURES
      75mm Resin Miniatures
      All of the Townsfolk are available at 75mm cast in resin. Centrifugal cast in a high quality polyurethane resin.
      Just add £18 per miniature to your pledge. You can choose as many as you like from the full range.
      Or you can pledge for the Collectors/ Painters Pledge which includes all 15 miniatures (including the Druid) for £240
       
      Painted Samples
      The 75mm Blacksmith painted by Angel Giraldez
      Here we have the Druid & the Farmer's daughter painted by Elias Alonso
       We have to say a big thanks to Alfonso Prieto and Elias Alonso from Beholder factory for working with us to create this project.

      Welcome to our second Black Hallows Kickstarter campaign. With the lead up to the main game later this year, we are now expanding the range and have the following on offer.
      28mm, 32mm and 75mm character miniatures
      Horses & carts
      The first two buildings for the world of Black Hallows (the first of many)
      The Black Hallows: Cradle of Darkness novel
      RPG content
      ...and of course, there are many stretch goals to unlock during the campaign.
      Early Backers Special FREE Model - The iron cage - Limited to the first 300 main pledges only
      i.e. The Townsfolk II pledge or the Tavern Pledge or above.
      (£45 or more)
      Welcome to the world of Black Hallows on this bitterly cold night, the wind is howling outside "The Boar's Head" tavern, the horses are restless in the stables, and a figure moves in the shadows...is it friend or foe? The Townsfolk are sleeping soundly in their beds, unaware of the danger that may be creeping towards them. The clouds race across the sky, and the wind continues to howl.
      The Townsfolk II is the second set in a range of non-player character miniatures, crafted from the highest grade, lead free Pewter (This quality of metal is normally only used for masters). They are available in either 28mm or 32mm and will come with their own base toppers and plastic bases. They are ideal for use in role playing games like D&D, Pathfinder, etc. Use them in your war games or collect and paint them for display.
      28mm miniatures have 25mm plastic bases and 32mm miniatures have 32mm plastic bases.
      We are also offering any of the characters in a 75mm resin version (see below). 75mm resin versions have a cast resin plinth.
      We will be using Backerkit as our pledge manager after the campaign ends. If you wish to pledge for add-ons, add the funds to your main pledge on Kickstarter and then inform us of your choice using the pledge manager. 
      Let us introduce you to the characters in the Townsfolk II.
      Gazamunder is the town's resident rat catcher; with him the only thing you can ever be sure of is that you can never be sure of him. Need information? It's yours at a price. Need information that's actually true? It'll cost you twice as much. Plookes, his faithful ratter, is the only living soul that he cares about.
      Yarog's life has been an interesting one and if he could be persuaded to speak of it, the tales would certainly entertain the travelers that stop at the Boar's Head. He was raised in the far north, to a clan famed for their engineering prowess, destined to one day be their leader. However, Yarog always knew he wanted something different from life, something that he could get his teeth into. He left the safety and tradition of home and set off to find adventure and a really good recipe for tripe.
      Garot the Butcher, cold and unfeeling, like the carcasses that surround him. Butchery comes naturally to him and at times he enjoys his job a little too much. Hacking and slashing with relish, no wonder the other townsfolk only visit his shop in pairs!
      Mace & Ridley live by the saying "They who drink beer will think beer!" and as the towns only brewers, they take their work very seriously and do a lot of "thinking".Which explains the slightly glazed expression, the unsteadiness of balance and the bouts of raucous singing. No one quite knows how they make a living from brewing their famous ale, but they're never short of cash, even when they do appear to drink all the profit! 
      The fine silks, sumptuous linens, and exotic velvet speak of wealth and power and Nikolai Magnus cultivates the illusion of being a successful textile merchant very well, but everyone knows cloth isn't the real source of his income. He is a loan shark of the most cold-blooded type.
      You wouldn't think it to look at him,  sat hunched on his cart, but there's a lot more to Rawkin than meets the eye. There aren't many places he hasn't been and there's not much he hasn't seen or done. He knows pretty much every living being on the dirt roads from here to where the soil becomes the sea.
        Add-Ons: The Hero Characters £6 (Each)
      Kindra Whispersong was called to service by her God as a young girl. The divine magic that glows in her eyes and the powers that accompany it, has led her into many adventures and battles that most of the townsfolk could never imagine. She never speaks of her quest; that is between her and her deity. 
      The tranquil, dignified air of Awyn Moonbinder only hints at the power, the energy and the skill that lies beneath his tanned skin and within his toned muscles. His spiritual training allows him to harness the power of the Hallows. He is a unique being, born on the furthest plains. Maybe that is why he feels at home as a lone wanderer, only ever passing through the village when he's returning to the monastery. 
      Gulm, though his distinctively Orkish features cause many to shy away from him, he was raised by a loving human mother and like the stone he works, the sharp edges of his Ork personality have been smoothed. His strength and savagery are channeled through the tools he uses, making him the most sought after stonemason in the town.
