Yeah I closed mine on Sept 11 and my first order number is #59419.  Very strange!

I am backer 427.  Though I am not sure that has any significance.  

I am hoping I'll at least be in the first 50% of wave 1.

 

 

 

 

Personally I think there is a conspiracy between Reaper and the EU backers to get their stuff pulled first.  I mean the first Brexit vote was around 3 years ago and this KS was started almost 2 years ago and they had a delay so that it all culminated within days of each other.  I think Brexit is just a ruse to get EU backers their stuff first.  FOLLOW THE SIGNS PEOPLE!!

 

 

WOOF Secret Service HQ

 

*** Sir! This one might be on to us!***

 

*** Quick! Alert double agent May, she needs to stall this thing a little longer! ***

 

 

I'm waiting patiently for my Bones.

I said patiently!

 

In no way am I sitting on my porch collecting cobwebs!

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 later than I had hoped to be.  I have content for this week, but let's pick the second January update (fourth Friday 1/25/19) Content. Five options.  Use the Like this post options to cast

Survey Time!   I'm going to let yall have a wee bit of input on the next Expansion Pack I feature for the updates. I have parameters I have to follow, so it isn't super open for yall to

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:

IIRC, the Wave shipping was always supposed to average 1-2 waves a week, meaning that every wave they added was going to add at least a half a week to their fulfillment time.  For the 14 waves, 7 weeks is to be expected.   In Bones 3, they decided to speed it up because they were so late. 

This simply tells me that that they're getting better at making things work as they originally planned

I'm always slightly annoyed at people complaining about EU being shipped first. There was/is a real concern about not making the Brexit deadline and having to pay import taxes twice (one time we already payed through the pledgemanager, the other time would be with a hard Brexit for crossing the border UK to EU) and I'm happy they seem to get the stuff out before that.

Also, I backed in the first few minutes of the KS and would easily have been wave 1 if all the orders were sorted in waves, so why do some US wave 1 backers think we should wait until most orders are sorted? o.O

I don't get it either. In the grand scheme of things, it only delays US backers by a little, and makes the RoW backers happier.  And it's not like we're all going to the same FLGS and game stores showing off our loot.

KS comments, cause some backers are entitled and pissy they didn't get their stuff a year ago. 

The negativity in the KS comments always surprises me when there is positive news, even though by now I would think it shouldn't. 

 

I am order 59338, locked in on the 10th as well, though I don't know what time.  My KS backer number is 431, though I don't think that makes a difference - I seem to recall @ladystorm saying they no longer received the backer number information or didn't keep it, or something like that.

My undead dragon is getting an amputation, actually. I'm hoping that I can use it to correct an issue with my Ebonwrath where he looks like he's goosestepping. I want to replace his raised foot that's oddly flat with a more curved claw. I figure a zombie dragon can easily be missing a foot with some minor modification...

Why are you trying to summon the @buglips*the*goblin !?!?!?

Because this thread needs more strange smells and mysterious puddles....

 

Trying something new - looking at the pictures of the incoming minis, and seeing what looks tempting to build an adventure around. (Hmmm... Tree of Despair... Stygian Barge... why is Megan looking worried?....)

order# 58933 on 9/10/17 as well. I am backer # 2,429 :huh: I seem to recall someone at reaper (Bryan?? or Ron) during or just after the Kickstarter ended and the PM went up, that the order of battle err shipping depended heavily on when you *Locked in* your inital pledge. At least, that's how I remember it:)

That's what I recall too.

 

Hoping I'm early enough that I'll be out the door on day 1.

That is my recollection as well for both B2 and B3.  And since the pledge manager appears to be the same, my guess is that it applies to B4 as well. 

My memory, however, is not perfect...

      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
