Reaper has been listening. You've not been the only one requesting most of these things.

 

 

Makes me think Reaper is a lot like Santa; they know what you've been wanting, they know if you've been naughty or nice, and they deliver great toys!  (Hopefully they don't see you when your sleeping though! :blink:

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.

Edit w/ more details

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.

 

This sounds like it might be a better option for those that are worried about paying VAT twice.  I'm in the US so am spoiled and don't know Jack about any of this stuff.  Feel bad for Reaper trying to make the best of a complicated situation.

Reaper now needs to collect VAT before shipping to the UK hub. So all the EU backers need to hand over 20% more. This update came in right at the 48 hour mark. 

Some questions on that remain open, e. g. what happens if the UK leaves the EU before we get our stuff. I'm confident we will get an update on that soon though.

 

Understood that part of it. I was thinking about previous Bones Kickstarters. I should have been more clear in that question.

You may be right.

 

Definitely hope they don't see you when you are sleeping though... maybe that is why some of the minis are so large, the better to hide cameras within?

Understood that part of it. I was thinking about previous Bones Kickstarters. I should have been more clear in that question.

Previously everyone had to take care of their VAT and customs by themselves. Bones 3 EU backers apparently didn't pay VAT at all, cause it was surprise shipped from inside the EU, without collecting VAT previously. So that was kind of the assumption for some backers, especially since the original information did list taxes for some regions, like Texas or the UK, but not for the rest of the EU.

In theory, having everything taken care of before my package arrives is a plus - no handling fees, no driving to the customs office, no postman who just accepts cash. But some people have been left wondering if this deal really benefits them, cause their country doesn't have a no-VAT agreement with the UK. So in theory, Reaper would pay the VAT for importing into GB, and the backer would pay VAT again for importing into their own country. Noone wants that ofc.

Potentially, this could be all of us if the UK somehow elfs up their post-Brexit negotiations.

 

I am a bit more confident after I read the comments by Reaper though.

      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.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
