They don't have a legal right to it. At all.   

But I'm willing to take a risk in order to REALLY, REALLY elf them over... 

 

 

I hope it works out!

 

I would not give this number to a delivery service.

Even if it meant they wouldn't deliver my pledge.

Reaper might need a different courier for this, never heard of such a thing.

It seems this is only asked of Norwegians, which to me states that the border guys at Norway are asking this of the couriers going in the country.

No other places have we seen this question, only in Norway. The DPD package to me (NL) went without any such questions, along with many other europeans.

 

I wonder why Norwegian customs is asking for this number..

Norwegian Customs work for the Government, right?

So they could get it, but not the delivery guys.

 

I do hope this will end well for gadgetman, I'm kinda paranoia when it comes to providing personal info that can be used for identity fraud and such.

A courier service should not have this info.

This here tells me the number isn't considered private information and thus isn't protected by the data protection laws.

It also says Norwegian Taxes use it to easily identify the person, I'm guessing it's for the import taxes.

 

I thought it was similar to our BSN number, you don't give your BSN number to the mailman.

Customs in the Netherlands will just send you a bill when you need to pay customs right with the package, pay when delivered or it won't be delivered.

I have had some stuff from the USA where I needed to pay at the door when delivered.

No problem.

 

Still see no reason why a courier would have to have that number.

That's just the issue, Norwegian customs DOESN'T REQUIRE the number!   

 

It's completely irrelevant WHO is importing something when the VAT and whatever TOLLs are applied(As long as it' not a company or organisation). For that they just need a value and goods. Mostly, the customs work is done by the shipping company or the shipping company in conjunction with the customs people.    

(The Norwegian post handles it by themselves)   

The post just ships the package to the nearest post office and slap a 'Pay on Delivery' note on it, and I pay whatever fees when I collect it.   

DHL hands me the package, then mail me an invoice a few days later. After all, they have my name and address...    

UPS I believe bring a wireless CC reader and take payment when they deliver the package.(Years and years since they delivered me anything)    

 

EDIT: Also, no tracking code today... Maybe tomorrow?

Strange behaviour from DPD.

You couldn't reason with them?

Truth. I don't know what's worse though, knowing they're on their way, or having them and not having any time to play with them?

Both, it was tough to wait, but now my living room is covered in them and I haven't even finished opening them all to check if I'm missing anything. Doesn't help that I will need my barge completed by Sunday so that was started immediately.

Just got an update on my Pledge that left Reaper Nottingham HQ on Tuesday. Y'know, the one DPD said would be delivered on Wednesday? 

 

As of 12.30 today, it was still in DPD Nottingham :rock:

 

I would like to point out that my monthly tithe from Reaper UK was send out yesterday with the free (Royal Mail) shipping option. It arrived this morning. Truly not happy with DPD right now ::(:

Mine has one. You're not alone.

 

Will be fixed with some x-acto work and green stuff.

They're easily filled with Elmer's Glue or if you like to be fancier (like me) you can get some Golden's Moudling Paste from Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Just fill and allow to dry. Works like a champ.

      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
