Now that pictures are being shared, what are some things that you regret not getting? 

 

For me it's the snake, a duplicate set of the rulers of hell, the skeletal monsters, Mossbeard, and blacksting

 

Definitely a few regrets. Mossbeard though I dont normally use ents. A second king cobra. The Barge. Maybe Dreadmere

I'm kinda confused about what was rude about anything @Dontmindme said. Everybody's making assumptions and speculating based on their own experiences, no need for anyone to get their feathers ruffled over statements that can't be proved nor disproved. The only thing we know for certain is that some number of backers who made some number of orders will be waiting for the rest of their items to arrive in the final container and if people want to make wild speculations over that, well, as long as they're clearly not stating it as known fact, eh, have fun with your guesses I suppose. ::):

Apparently bringing real numbers to the discussion is now somehow "rude" because it makes a self-proclaimed "experienced backer" somehow wrong...

I have backed of all 4 of these Bones Kickstarters.  Early Bird Bones 2 and Wave 1 Bones 3.  Stuck with Wave 2 this time.

 

There are at most, assuming 23,000 original orders and ZERO Wave 14 backers, 6,800 duplicate orders.  For the remaining 5,500-6,000 orders all to average 10 orders a piece, that would mean that virtually every single duplicate order went unfulfilled and is on hold with none of them delivered.  It would also mean that there are only people who ordered once and those who ordered 10 times.  Frankly, that does not make any sense.  We know that there are at least 16,200 backers and that at least 9,400 of them placed but a single order (and that is assuming that all ~6,800 orders only placed two).  If there are 550 people with 10+ orders (and all of them are still waiting and not Wave 1 U.S. or overseas or Canadian orders), then 14,350 of these orders are but a single order.  It's very clear that the majority of people have but a single order.  And it should be pretty obvious that most of the duplicate orders are likely to be x2 or x3 with very few multiple orders more than that.

 

And all of this based on the optimistic figure of 23,000 orders which I believe has been shown to be less as well as assuming that virtually no one ordered in Wave 14.  Those are the facts as we know it...

Skeletal dragon, zombie dragon, dance of death, skeletal monsters, roc, blacksting, several sets of both living statues, and the dragon turtle. I regret getting the Raiders, but now that I have them in hand I'll tell you that they look really good, and if they were what I'd been lead to believe I was ordering I'd be glad to have them.

Actually, it was the condescending tone implied by your post. Which you've carried into this reply, seemingly confirming that it was intentional.

I have not gotten anything yet, but I am not regretting anything. There are a few things I really want to get retail. I knew there were some things, but the list has expanded.

I thought you were fine, @Dontmindme. You were being mathy. I don't personally mind mathy. It helps make sense of things. Goodness knows that I've gotten myself sucked into mathing stuff here sometimes too.

On one of my Facebook groups, someone from the UK has mentioned that they received their shipping notice for Bones 4 and is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Can anyone from across the pond confirm that they're getting theirs as well?

The Stygian Barge is one I regret not getting. It's like the BFG from Bones 3, I remember thinking "that's neat but I don't need it". And then I saw it and now I'm thinking I was a fool.

Also, the Dreadmere expansion.

Argent is another one, it being smaller only makes it a little more enticing, if only because it would be easier to find room for it.

 

And, as others have said, there's a bunch of stuff in the Lost Valley and Fan Favorites that I wanted, but not $50 wanted, like the Mammoth and the Ankylosaur.

I have to agree. Most of what he or she said makes sense. Even speculation is sounds good. May the goddess only know what the outcome will be. I don’t think anyone knows if wave 14 is done yet.

I need to check the eye sockets on my skeletal dragon and Kaladrax when I get home. If they're the right size, I might try something erm... strange. I might get synthetic star rubies to shove in the sockets.

Overall there seem to have been around 1.3 orders per backer* (+/-), with the highest average in Wave 1 (per Reaper). We think that most of Wave 1 shipped, since it took several days and people with fairly late lock-in dates in that wave still got orders including the chicken hut. I'd guess at less than 2 orders per remaining backer (but that's a complete guess), so using your estimate of 5.5K orders (seems reasonable), I'd guess at somewhere around 3K pledgers awaiting the arrival of that last container.

 

Again, that's a guess and not based on anything but public information. I have no inside information at all.

 

* A minimum of 16200 backers and 22000+ orders, which would be a bit above 1.3, but also doesn't count any backers who came in after the end of the project.

*Ahem* Fourteen orders....

 

Not counting the ones going to Megan's Mum's house.

 

If the end had been delayed by another month we would have had sixteen.... ::P:

 

The Auld Grump - the first one I am planning to paint is currently the undead ogre juggernaut in Dreadmere - I might even try to copy the paint scheme from the demo version.

A reminder that sometimes it’s not what we say but how we say it.

 

Play nice everyone.

I'm in the netherlands and nope. It seems unlikely if it arrives in UK this week (which was said) it still would have to clear customs... But one can hope. :)

Sounds perfectly logical to me.

Thinking about it, I've got a fair sized chunk of Tiger Eye around here someplace.

That could be made into some awesome cabachons to use for Dragons Eyes.

I can confirm based on a car ride to the airport with Kit today TX that none of the UK Hub orders have shipped from the Hub to backers.  He is heading back to the UK now and will be receiving delivery of his containers shortly.
