It's the same method they did last time. I don't remember anyone from Canada saying they got charged extra fees from UPS, not saying it didn't happen just that no one hear mentioned it IIRC.

I got charged for bones 2, not for bones 3.

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 Wave 1, and only ordered the Tree of Despair from the List of Doom. I wonder what the odds are that mine will only arrive 2 months late, rather than 3+...<_<

 

From the way I took the update it sounds like it is probably after Wave 1 as to when they may run out.  I dont think they would have started unless they new they could get through ROW and at least a couple of waves of US shipping.  

Thats what I'm hoping is the case.  I got the Frost Giants.

I got a tree of despair and the Frost giants. I am hoping they have enough for a couple waves. I am wave 1. Us Shipping will be going on until May 20... They said the goal was for everyone to get shipped around the same time. But if US shipping is going on for 7 weeks it doesn't seem like that will be the case. I really hope that those missing items don't push me to the end of May shipping.

 

Not trying to be negative but that update really disappointed.  Not enough to skip out on Bones 5, but still pretty disappointed. May 20 shipping means possibly June Delivery for some folks. Sorry for the negativity, but I had psyched myself for possibly getting these next week or the week after, and now its 13 days more before US shipping even starts, then it could be 7+ weeks before my order gets processed due to missing items, then another week or 2 for delivery. so possibly 11 more weeks... :down:

NOOoooo.......

April 8th is an eternity from now::(:::(::down::down:

Wait, Two Weeks?

Only two Weeks?

But I ordered everything - except Chronoscope, and DVDs.

So I'm still at the back of the queue?

Breaking News - an unnamed group in Carina Heights, Australia has kidnapped an important Kickstarter. From the leader of this unexpected action: All your Bones are belong to us!

 

A panel van of Foster's Ale has been parked near the site of the kidnapping, with the keys left in the ignition.

 

Shipment is expected to resume once the Foster's has been consumed and the kidnappers come to their senses. Unexpected sobriety is being blamed for the incident.

 

The Auld Grump - I fully expect the Newfies to try something similar....

If that's the case, we're gonna need a whole lot of Red Label for our neighbors to the north.

The way I understood it was that they would be set aside till the last container arrives not that they would be pushed to the end of fulfillment. 

There is still a chance you will get your stuff the week of the 8th!

In their defense, you did go to Nerd Central. Cowboy gear may be part of cosplay instead of everyday. Not all Texans have a 100 acre ranch to mend fences on.

That's what's called a garden patch, hon.

Yeah, April 8th doesn't work real well with my planned day off on Friday the 5th... and I'm in for both the tree and Baba Yaga's hut... :down: Well.... I guess I'll just have to take another day off sometime later.

I get the disappointment. I'm a bit frustrated by it too. They mentioned in the video that they're "not as late" as Bones 3, but that's honestly only because they built themselves even more lead time than they did for Bones 3. I'm not happy, but it is what it is. I haven't gotten to paint enough since I changed jobs back in November, so I haven't yet run out of Bones 3 like I would have if I'd stayed at my prior job.

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.  

With today's video update, that doesn't seem possible, but likely

Sounds like US shipping won't begin till April 8

This is correct, and sort of negates the above::P:

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! 

Do LOTS of priming and basecoating.

Little sad that shipping won't begin till the 8th but the schedule they gave makes sense as to why it is still a bit off.  Also it is only a week and a half till that begins and things from Reaper usually take 2-3 days to get to me and I am Wave 1 so there is a chance I will get it on the week of the 8th (if they don't run out of Frost Giants ::):).  

 

It was a good update though it feels like they finally laid everything out and now we are all on the same page.  

I am also in wave 1 and have giants, I am confident they have enough for wave 1, maybe even wave 2 (From Ed's comment)

If you are wave 1, odd's are good you will be fine

I see (if they are going on 500 orders a day) IF as someone said, there are 1,000 wave 1's (not sure where that was from??), then technically wave 1's like you and I will see our stuff shipped out by Wednesday the 10th, especially if they have enough stuff for the first wave or two. So I see 3 or 4 weeks max (I say MAX because UPS is the sticking point in the scheme of things here, worst shipper IMHO of the big three).

      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.
