IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

Easter is on a Sunday...meaning UPS [?] workers...nearly everybody is off on a Sunday, except hospitals, air traffic control, police, and such. 

And long haul truck drivers,

Which includes the guys who drive the inter-terminal loads for UPS.

Unless their 70 hour clock [time behind the wheel for the current work-week cycle] runs out they will be on the road Sunday same as every other day.

Woohoo! Just got my pledge! I haven't checked the minis yet, but the Roc and Mossbeard definitely caught my attention. Like a few others, I ordered Paint Set B and received half of set B and half of set A. The boxes were labeled Set 1 B & Set 2B. The box labeled Set 2B has 6 paints from Paint Set A. I got the correct glow & mist triads, but I'm missing the wood & grey(?) triads.

Coincidentally, one of the incorrect paints I got, Ebony flesh, I just ordered from the Reaper store. It's out for delivery today. It should be here in an hour or so. :lol:

 

Gotta say, I'm stoked to see that nearly all of the multi-part figures are either on sprues or in pieces. So happy that I'll get to assemble them myself. I'll put them together with care.

Just got back to computer.  Do we know how many of the orders today were wave 2?

 

They were still on Wave 1 at 11:09 Central Time. I dunno if that factoid helps.

Fun thing, if you're tracking, sign up for the UPS my choice and that will let you track shipments (with text updates!)

Am I correct in thinking that all the pledges that have the delayed models will be fulfilled at the very end?

According to Ed when they run out of product the orders will be pulled and set aside until the last container arrives at which time they will finish packing and shipping those orders.

If I interpret that correctly they will be the first orders fulfilled from the newly arrived product.

no- as soon as the missing models have been restocked they'll go back to the pledges that were missed.

No. Ron and Ed stated in one of the Reaper Live shows that as soon as they have the missing stock in hand those orders will be filled and sent out.

My understanding is that as soon as the backordered minis are in the warehouse, Reaper will begin fulfilling orders that were delayed. Probably by wave but I don't think that was specifically confirmed. 

 

That means other orders in whatever the current wave is at that time will be delayed while they catch back up. So no, if you have a delayed wave 1, you won't need to wait for wave 14 to finish up to get your stuff shipped. 

 

Edit: wow, I don't think I've ever been ninja'd four times before! A new personal record.

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      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
