I'm quite happy with how the EU orders are planned to happen. Yes, paying VAT up front hurt, it was roughly 20% iirc, but if everything actually arrives at my door without extra charge I will be quite happy.

Paying upfront in smaller incriments feels better than having your fulfillment joy dampened by a sudden large fee.

 

I agree, better to pay the VAT upfront and then not have to pay a handling fee for the privilege of the Royal Mail calculating the VAT for me.

On a more positive note, is it wrong that I'm looking forward to all the pictures of forumites cats sitting in their new boxes? ::P: 

I think my Hubby's cat was disappointed with the size of the last KS box. It was fairly narrow. Nonetheless, he sat in it until he threw up in it. :rolleyes:

I don't have a cat, but based on what everyone has said, I will fit in the box :;):

Oh wow you're so organised!  I can't even begin to think about what I might paint first- especially with so much already on my shelf of shame XD I do know that I keep going back and looking at the Dark Reach / Dreadmere expansions, so if I had to guess, probably something from one of those!

See, my contestants are: Something from Bones 1, something from Bones 2, or something from Bones 3... :)

 

(I'm not the fastest painter, and haven't really picked up a brush since my wife passed.  Yet I still buy models and paint.)

My Bones 2 cost me 42$ in extra fees including handling and taxes. Part if what was crossed was that they thought it was for resale and not personal use. But you can claim that on income taxes anyway.I definitely appreciated whatever method was used for 3 as I got no extra charges.

I used to subscribe to indie publishers in the USA, but when you add conversion and extra shipping (2$ became 10$) and I would be paying 19$ for a 7$ book. If it got stopped at the border it would automatically add another 11$. Free trade is a bit of a lie, really. It doesn't help small businesses.

Is it too late to join the kickstarter?  I was hoping to do the $15 pledge.  I see the Pledge Manager is shut down as of July 2018.

Yes.

 

At this point, you have to wait for retail releases.

Yeah even the late pledge option closed a long time ago now. After the kickstarter has shipped (at some point in February) we might have a better idea of when the retail releases will be scheduled. Which item was it that you were interested in? Some of the sculpts are available in metal if theres a particular model you're wanting for something?

Be aware that the stranger the model is shape-wise, the longer it will take to release.  Goremaw from the last KS just released in the past couple of weeks.  "normal" sized/shaped minis I expect will be released in monthly batches after all the KS fulfillment is complete.

Yeah, I was so happy to finally see Goremaw!  Now I just have to save up the  moolah to buy a copy...

Does anyone ever create a checklist for the minis in the core set so that when we go through them we can make sure we have everything?
