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

So I'm later than I had hoped to be.  I have content for this week, but let's pick the second January update (fourth Friday 1/25/19) Content. Five options.  Use the Like this post options to cast

Eh what? That's interesting. I hope that person is neither confused nor trolling.

 

Edit: Though it would be weird for him to have to pick it up at the customs office, since the package is from an EU country and should go through without customs getting involved.

As i said earlier in this thread, UK postage systems had "customs" forms EVERYWHERE when posting to EU due to Brexit originally ending on April 12th, to "avoid" the charges, if they can prove they were posted before we left you would avoid extra charges etc.

 

Royal Mail FedEx and Hermes were all filling them in when i was posting to a friend in France :)

But you haven't left the EU, so DHL or whoever else ends up with those packages would treat them like domestic orders with  an annoying amount of water in between.

 

And for that person to have gotten a customs letter, like he claims, German customs would have gotten the order sometime last week and I guess we would have heard of other EU customers by now.

They came in! And the UPS guy even carried it upstairs for us!

Also, they take up half of our 8 foot table.

Hmm, I think they got your decimal point in the wrong place, that must be 42.0:rock:

Yeah - I was so excited for the Darkreach expansion...and I needed two of each raft.

 

In hindsight, I wish I had gotten a second lost valley. Mostly because DINOSAURS

On first glance, everything appears to be here. But I have to go back to work, so I cant do a full inventory. But...only 2.5 hours left of work! Then I can revel in my Bones and do a full inventory.

I ordered 2 Cores, and 2 Chronoscopes. only one each of the other three, but I was sorely tempted. On the other hand, I ordered 3 additional Ape attack,  Snake cultists, and Cave dwellers (RAT OGRES!!), 2 extra Goblins,  and 1 extra of Gauth, Monsters, Demons and devils, Kobolds, Ghost pirates, Sophie and friends, and the Elves. Now that I look at it, I might have been better off getiing an additonal core set for 20$ more and and reducing my core extras by 1 each across the board. Would have been an additional 76 minis for 20$. My dwarfy little heart just broke at passing up that deal. Oh well, lessons learned.

Ooh 2 chronoscopes, nice! I got one myself, wanted to be a completeist on expansions:) Hoping that some cores (and maybe others depending on how much I like) go on sale a while after the dust settles on Reaper website. Hopefully not too much over the Kickstarter price.

Ooh, and for all of us who have ONLY 20 mini's:)

Yesterday I finished inventorying my Kickstarter packaged ( celebrated by a pic of me in the box). After 31.4 lbs of piecing together every figure, I only ran into 2 issues:  half of Paint Set B was actually Paint Set A (as has been reported by several other people); and for the High Rollers set, the D10 fellow had the base for the D12 figure (the D12 figure itself had the correct base). The last part makes sense, considering that those two figures are the only ones in that set where the bases are not connected by sprue to the figure. Emailed Reaper last night, they've already sent the replacements for them (and gave Mama-san scritchies for me while she was supervising the help desk).

 

All in all, that's an amazingly small amount of issues for such a small undertaking, and I want to thank Reaper for doing such a fantastic job getting through this with a minor amount of issues on my end. True, it's not fun having to wait for a little while for issues to get ironed out before they were able to get shipped, but I appreciate the fact that there are far less issues after receiving the package than I had with Bones 3. Not to mention that I didn't have to pay import duties for such a huge package, that would have bankrupted me. I hope everyone enjoys the figures when they get them as much as I do! ::):

      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
