I wonder if it'll take then longer to load the shipping containers and reset for Canada than it took to box up all of UK and AU?

let's hope not. It could also be that they had to get back to normal business shipping so they wouldn't fall behind?

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

I'm hoping that's what's going on.  My fear is that this might be another Bones I situation, where they were able to start fulfillment, but had to stop to await more product.

Could it also be possible that the Canada and US/Mexico stuff is all together, so staging it to go just takes longer due to more material? We might get a happy surprise of flinging Canada out, then smoothly into the rest of fulfillment.

That would be okay with me. I'm planning on taking next Friday off, and I'd really like to have my new toys to okay with.

Someone posted in the KS comment page that they talked to Reaper today and were told that their Wave One package should be to them in 2 weeks.  I am guessing that Reaper is giving themselves a bit of a cushion on that so hopefully it will be sooner than that but at least it will be within a couple weeks at worst.

It probably is a cushion but it's likely not too far off the mark if the package is coming across the border.

Customs can be super quick and send stuff on immediately or hold stuff indefinitely; reality is usually somewhere in between.

Matthew Clark posted this as a response to when shipping will resume on the Facebook page: We are loading containers for the UK and AU this week. We don't have room to continue until we finish this. Then we will do Canada and load containers for there. Then we will start Wave one.

I'd heard that Canada was going to be a separate pick but that instead of palletizing them and reshipping from a fulfillment center here they were shipping directly.

That would also explain the two week buffer for a US-bound Wave 1 shipment.

I have family visiting the 4th-8th, so not having a delivery in that time will be kinda nice. On the other hand, it would have been nice to hand some of the figures to my mom so she has more, and some to give to the neighborhood kids near her.

I am making wild guestimates as to what day my box will arrive, based off how long it takes to drive from Denton to Calgary, then Calgary to Vancouver, and how much the postage system loves to fart around. 

 

I estimate that I have ~3 weeks to learn to use my airbrush better!

      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.
      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
