mine is out for delivery.  this means it can show up anywhere from now until 9:00 tonight.  Loveley,  but I am a lightweight, only 17 pounds...

 

My only real regret is not getting one of the new T'raukzul models.  seeing the actual piece looks really good.  Though I suppose if I get really desperate, I can always buy one retail, its not like I don't have enough to paint in the meantime ::):

Weekend and opening update, 9 orders were processed before 9AM CDT, 78 orders were processed on Saturday, 29 orders were processed on Sunday, and 175 orders were processed on Monday. A total of 2033 wave 2 orders has been shipped so far. A confirmed 1 May 16 lock in date was packaged as order 128 yesterday. We can expect wave 3 to begin very soon.

 

Big Thanks to Aryanun for collecting the weekend data.

 

Why do we expect wave 3 to start soon? Don't get me wrong, I'm for it since it's my wave but I think I missed some information somewhere along the line that lets us estimate how many orders were in wave 2.

We do expect it since were towards the end of lock in dates, and unless a surprising amount of wave 2 backers did lock in right when the pledge manager closed, there shouldn't be that many left.

It's believed that the most ardent fans(who are more likely to have more than one order registered) were among the first to pledge, so they will mostly be in Wave 1, with a lesser portion in wave 2.  

All European and Asian backers(some of which were in Waves 1 & 2) and most of the Canadian backers were handled separately, before the tracker went up, so can be subtracted from the equation.

 

Those who pledged a $1 to 'get in' and only bought in the PM afterwards are in the latest vaves(7 or later) and those who missed the KS alltogether, and jumped on after the PM opened are in even later waves(I'm in Wave 10... But I'm also in Europe, so my goods are in a container heading towards GB)

 

So, even if Wave 2 consists of 2000 backers, not all too many of them has more than one order, and additionally, several backers have already had their goods pulled separately, so aren't counted.

Ah, I see. It's not so much an estimate of the number orders as it is an assumption that lock-ins are reasonably evenly distributed over the available period. Thanks!

My bones came in the mail yesterday and they look great! The only thing that is bent to the point where I would need to fix it is the torture table rack thing. I got doubles of most things to be on the safe side, but that was hardly necessary. Now I just have double the minis to try out different things!

 

My box also seemed to have been opened at customs but there was no slip to tell me that had happened :S

How do you find out what the lock dates are? There seem to an  endless amount of wave 2 orders!

That and ReaperBryan said that Wave 1 was about twice the size of wave 2.

Actually, I was a $1 pledge to get in and placed two orders in the PM later (when I had disposable funds for minis) and I'm in wave 3. Waves 1 and 2 had no $1 levels, but Waves 3+ all had that option.

Right, I remember that but I thought that was items per order, not the number of orders. I could be wrong though, I'm pretty good at that. :poke:

People posting in the Kickstarter comments. Someone with a particularly late lock date said they received their shipping notice.

He said that the average number of orders per backer was significantly larger in wave 1 and that wave 1 was twice the size of wave 2. But he was also probably very exhausted when he made those estimates.

 

Hourly update, 119 orders were processed between 9-10AM. A total of 2152 wave 2 orders has been shipped so far. No new lock in date confirmations since the May 1st 166 orders ago but wave 2 should still be close to finish.

To find your lock in date, go to your PM and look at the total for your first order. Right below that will be a Completed on date. The only way we know about what lock in date the orders are on is from people posting them when they get their shipping email.

      Found this on kickstarter, seems a very useful handle, the idea of the ring is super and  I find that the way it turn upside-down it's brilliant!

      Maybe the shipping for EU it's a bit too hight considering it ship from UK... but at least it is not overpriced. 

      I'm in for the early basic :)

       Morana, 75 mm Morana was once a champion of the sacred order of the Radiant Fist. During a mission, the dark wizard Shahrivar cast a curse over her and traped her soul in a gem. Since then his body has become the wizard´s tool, bringing death and disease wherever she goes.
       Akanksha, 75 mm Heiress to the throne of Shin Kingdom was always known for her diplomatic skills and her sword mastery. In one of her many diplomatic meetings, she received as a gift a pendant in the shape of a heart and, since then, there has been no desire which have refused or a lover that have rejected. It must be said that the tensions between the neighbouring kingdoms are more relaxed than ever.
         Najwa, 75 mm  At another time, Najwa was the high priestess in the Sharated Temple. The Great Tremorrevealed an ancient buried room in the depths of the temple that contained writings from a thousand years ago. She was the first to study them and learned dark and forbidden knowledge which poisoned her body and soul. The high wizard Lucianus tried to save her but it was too late, she destroyed the temple and was lost in the night.
      Here you can see a comparative image of the projected height for the miniatures in both versions. Has you can see, the 75 mm scale will offer an excellent miniature for your shelf and the 32 mm scale will fit in any boardgame and wargames that you can imagine.
          In adition, some parts have been changed from the 75 mm scale to the 32 mm scale to avoid too small details and give the best painting experience.
      Here you can see the reward levels offered in this campaign. You can find the full information about every offer in the reward list of the campaign and, if you have any doubt, don´t hesitate to ask.
                  Here you can see the stretch goals that are planned for this campaign and they correspond to new extra characters that will be fully revealed during the campaign. When we reach the corresponding objective, their miniatures in both versions will be added to the available Add-Ons.  All those who opt for the Fallen Maidens reward may access to a special offer of these characters.
      Although only tree Strech goals are scheduled, I would add new characters in case the campaign reached higher goals. If this happens I will consider your suggestions to create new characters that captivate you.
      The add-ons are additional items you may be interested in adding to the rewards that correspond to your pledge level. To include an add-on, simply add its specified value in € to the amount of your pledge.
      When the campaign ends you will receive the backer survey where you will be able to specify which add-ons you want to include.
         Here you will find the available fantasy football products. If you missed the Asgard´s Sons campaign, this is your chance to get them and obtain exclusive characters.
        All shipping will be delivered by ordinary postal mail. How is it possible that there is a great disparity in the size of the packages, the shipping costs will be calculated according to each order to be fair. When the campaign ends and once the survey is done, the backers will be contacted to collect the shipping costs through Paypal just before sending each order. We can not ship to PO Boxes.
      If you come to Pamplona to pick up your order you will save these expenses and we can also meet in person!
      So you can get an idea of how much these costs will be, here you have a list of the estimated value of the shipments.
      I will do my best to keep these cost to the minimum possible. The shipping is planned to begin in March 2020. However, depending on the production requirements, it might change. 
      For those who opt for the Add-Ons level, it is possible that they receive their rewards sooner, It will depend if I have already available what they want to purchase or it must be manufactured.
      Further information will be posted on the updates of this project. 
      The master model of every miniature will be printed by 3DA Impresiones, a company that specializes in prototype.
      The resin miniatures will be manufactured by GRX Creations known by his high quality.
      Risks and challenges
      All designs are not a final product and can suffer changes during the manufacturing process. 
      Due to production requirements, the planned date to begin the shipping process might be changed due to the amount of the pieces needed and other factors out of my control. However, I will keep you updated on any changes.
      If you do not accept the terms of the campaign, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.

      It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD BRICK SERIES, the GOLD DIGGER FREDeral Reserve which compiles a multitude of the Gold Digger  spin-offs and ancillary series.   If you supported the previous Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, the main Gold Digger series is fast approaching the 300-issue mark and is going strong!  (Including material like that being compiled into the FREDeral Reserve, GD is already well past that milestone!)
      If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators.
      Prominent among the many series we have published over the years is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. Among comic books with female leads, its run is second only to Wonder Woman.  In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger.
      Over the past years, we have released other Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. This Gold Brick is outside the numbering system of the main-series Bricks, so no potentially confusing volume numbers this time! If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy!
      Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked us to collect these series, since many of these issues are difficult to find. 
      So what is included in this Gold Brick?
      A Science Affair Asrial vs Cheetah GD Minus 18 Gina vs Penny (GvP) Gold Digger Dreadwing's Mymior Gold Digger Adventures WHEW...that's quite a line up.
      What are we going to do with the Kickstarter money?
      Plain and simple, we're going to print and ship the Gold Digger FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick.
      The FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick is over 600 pages, many of which are in full color. Printing the actual books is the biggest single expense. The first print run of a typical Gold Brick is quite costly, as most printers require a minimum run to make it cost-effective. We are thus using Kickstarter to assist us with those costs. If the amount seems high, you must remember that we are printing at least a thousand copies of a 600+ page book. Another cost is shipping: First we will have to ship the books from the printer to our offices, and once we get them, send copies to all our supporters and distributors. Several thousand pounds of books represents a significant shipping expense.
      Here is a breakdown of our expenses.
      Printing: $12,500 (which includes hard and softcover)
      Shipping: $3,000 (Sending a 600-page book is costly, especially overseas.  The cost for shipping just one copy overseas is now around $34.)
      Fees: $1500 (Kickstarter takes their fees off the top)
      Handling/Supplies: $1500 (We have to pay for boxes and pay people to pack those boxes.)
      That does not include cost for sending the large PDF files to all the supporters and other miscellaneous costs.
      Those basic expenses total $18,500.
      So what do you get?
      The brick is 6 x 9 inches and will contain AT LEAST the series we mentioned above.
