Thanks for that heads up Chris!

 

Some of these pieces are big enough that besides hot water reforming, it might be possible to put some sturdy wires in and bend them to hold the shape. I do that with limbs and things sometimes.

 

 

Hmm... that’s not a bad idea.  Though I think the main problem is in the thin flat area between the two rocky outcropping, and any wire that would fit in there might not do much.  I could drill into the rocks each side of the gap, and run a big wire across it, and then just paint it like somebody put an iron bar across to provent things from crossing into the track.  

 

I think I will try the boiling first, and if that doesn’t work,  I’ll experiment  with some coat hanger wire.

If you have to go there, you might want to try music wire instead (though make sure you use the right tool to cut it). It's a hardened steel, so it's less likely to bend on its own over time.

My Bridge sets came in the same shipping box as my Core sets. So I don’t think they are shipping then separately.

Emailing them is the way to go. They didn't mention a delay for any item other than the stair sets that they didn't add to the early shipments. Probably just overlooked adding it to your box.

Update posted with quite a lot of info

Unfortunately the AU distributor is rather full of it,  the convention referred to is one of the smaller ones,  and they'll  only have a minimal stand there (unless something has changed since i last looked at the trader map for wintercon). I think they're just too busy with other project fulfillment

Regretably at least half the Australian friendly kickstarters I'm aware of use this particular company to send things out. As was pointed out to me in the comments there was another convention this weekend just gone that i wasn't aware of.  My perceptions of the company are biased due to other dealings I've had with them outside of kickstarter fulfullment.

 

Once they get things running with kickstarters they are usually pretty good

I'm getting a bit disappointed. I thought it was a very nice solution to send those parts (stairs?) that they did not have enough of to Europe and AUS so that those folks (me included) would not have to wait that long. Then the problem with the paints happened and since then we have no idea where we stand, how close we are to shipping.

I just got a delivery notice - as I was leaving town.

someone will be tearing into the package this evening but it won’t be me. Chances of it not being stolen before I return are close to zero.

::(:

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      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.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      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.
