Are the Jadefires an all-female Orc tribe? :blink::wub: 

 

 

 

Good morning everybody!  Love the smell of fresh coffee and a fresh KS Update in the morning! ::):

 

 

I thought they looked like Cave-Elves.   I suspect the beauty of them will be folks can paint them green if they want Cave-orcs, and flesh if they want Cave-Elves...

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

Dunno, I just had been asking for a tribe of Orc ladies, so seeing those Jadefires really made my morning.

Almost feels unreal how many points on my wish list have been shown, a Zuggtmoy, more female fighting types, female giants, female orcs, ...

The new stone giants interest me. But at this time the rest of Lost Valley, not so much.

 

With the lady stone giant, Reaper has shown (again :lol:) that they listen to their customers.

 

We *are* a vocal bunch at times.

 

Now, I'm still expecting to see a Mr. Bones, or close associate, sometime before the last hour. Mr. Game Master Bones?

I'd love a good game master figure!  Open rulebook in one hand, dice in the other, and evil grin on face. ::):

If Brexit happens I prefer Reaper to send my stuff directly from US to Netherlands.

I only pay customs once then instead of twice.

 

The obvious solution (which may not be financially viable) is to move the European hub to a EU country permanently or have a "pop-up" hub somewhere in the EU for Kickstarters only.

There's an even easier solution - handle the reshipping yourself.  I did for Bones 3 and it was competitive in pricing to the Reaper shipping option to New Zealand, I had them delivered about 6 weeks before the Asia-Pacific container landed in Australia, and the lack of frustration was amazing.

 

If your country has a limit below which it doesn't collect VAT then you might be able to structure your shipments such that you don't have any duty to pay - that's the case in NZ but I suspect Europe is a bit more restrictive on such things.

 

But, if shipping is causing you pericombobulations I'd strongly recommend taking as much ownership of the issue as you can.

How did you manage shipping yourself? Did you have it sent somewhere in the US?

I used the NZ Post "YouShop" service - basically, I backed as if I was in the US, had it sent to their warehouse in Portland, Oregon, and from there it got reshipped to Auckland, New Zealand. 

 

There are other reshipping services available - one I looked into for price comparison was shipitto which might be a good option for people outside NZ.  Shop around, check out your options.

I already backed on the European pledge, but I guess I should look into it.

If you're worried about changing your shipping wave, there is very little time difference between the waves once they start sending out packages. Each wave takes practically only one day. 

 

And if @Laoke'a solution works for you, you'd probably still get it before other ROW backers ::P:

Let me put it this way - I had a Wave 7 US in my hands in NZ by the 22nd of June for Bones III.  European shipping started from the UK in earnest on July 15.

 

So purely in terms of timing, moving from a Europe wave to a later US wave is -likely- to be a few weeks faster if my experience is anything to go by.

      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
