…I feel like I would see all of them and just be so over-stimulated that I'd pass out…

That's what I do first. ::D:

As for what I paint first, whatever I need for a game. I don't try to paint everything I have (I like being immortal), I like having a mini at hand for whatever I might need.

Hourly Update, 133 orders were processed between 2-3PM CDT. A total of 770 wave 2 orders has been shipped/processed so far. Based on reports that Wave 2 was half the size of wave 1, wave 2 orders are either half way done or approaching halfway.

 

And the unboxing video is uploaded.

Since I was apparently too restrained in my order, the box has approximately 24 meters of packing pillows to fill the open space.

 

(Which, I'm sure, is a major reason that Reaper wanted to send Ma'al out in more ... restrained ... packaging for the fulfillment.)

My guess is they had both and have been randomly giving out retail boxed ones to single Ma'al orders.  Most of the folks that said they got more than one did not have any in retail boxes.

Just received my confirmation that my package received postage.  I had locked in on 8/21. 

 

Then yeah... I'll not get processed until tomorrow at the earliest.

Adding to that, I expect Canadian backers also are not getting the retail boxes. Based on added shipping costs et al.

I kind of suspect that they put the Ma'al Drakar retail boxes in orders with a fairly specific range of volumes and masses. You don't want to increase shipping cost for size beyond the shipping cost for weight, and Ma'al does require a big box, so that would probably put a floor on the mass of the order. And you don't want to go to two boxes unless you really have to, so that would probably put a ceiling on. Among those orders in between those sizes, who knows.

I had 2 and both were loose in a brown box.  But maybe they saw yours and said "hey this is Siri!! give her a retail box!!"

maybe =P  i odn't have that much stuff, the two ma'als are the bulk of my order. Then it's just one of most of the other dragons, dagon, goremaw, and a few other things

This might sound like heresy, but I don't care for the boxes.

I just want the mini and I'll be happy with it if it comes in a plastic bag.

 

I never keep boxes after painting a mini..

I mean ultimately its just more packing materials to throw away. I would be happy to have the box for storage and inspiration until I do paint it but then again the inspiration gallery or google search will take care of the latter.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
