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.

Retail box?

 

Yup. ::D:

 

It will have a pretty remarkable presence on a retail shelf.

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.

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.

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.
