i still haven't got a notice that they're shipping yet. My kickstarter backs have consisted of reaper up until i backed this one. kind of expected more of a well oiled machine out of this since they too had a 'successful' kickstarter under their belts. you live and learn i guess.

If you want a well oiled machine, try Oathsworn. They usually deliver early. :;): 

 

The problem with this one is relying on a factory half a world away. If the factory had even been in America, in sure it would have been much easier to make sure the product was to the required quality.

Well, there's only one reason to manufacture overseas -- price. And I think backers, at least during pledging, are more interested in cheap goods than fast delivery. Also, I'd imagine that it's the sample products which would cause delays regardless of location. If the samples need to be tweaked, that can add months to delivery, depending on the queue of the manufacturer. 

 

Dice KS have been notorious for delays, although I may be selectively been observing this. I will say that both the Tom Wilfong and CuCu dice that I've backed have had fulfillment problems. I just don't need the possible hassle dice KS have had to back or follow them as closely as I'd like.

Got mine and kinda disappointed in it.  I got the lapus lazuli which didnt seem to have that many color swirls like those in the pictures and a set of dragon fire which dont really have the same transparency in the pictures. Ohh well.

I finally got my two sets about a week ago. They had some imperfections, but my diamond files got them smoothed out. now they've got a dull spot where they aren't shiny, but meh. I like them. They roll pretty well and seem balanced. I've already had a friend say he wish i'd pointed it out to him. (he's the dm so if i get struck by lightning next session i know why). Mostly the issue was mold lines, but i did have what looked almost like a slight drip on one. I haven't given a closer look at my wife's dice, but she doesn't want me touching up any imperfections so there isn't really any reason to.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
