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

Just the catalog?

I ordered a token mini as well. Shaelin Female Bard. Since Bones should be coming soon, I didn't want to order anything really. But forgot that I wanted the Female plague doctor, or would have ordered her instead.

I wonder if Legends of Signum or this will arrive first...

 

I've already received my Legends of Signum rewards.  Granted, I only pledged for a few minis and not the whole game, but I've had them for a couple months.

I now have 3 kickstarters in a 3 way race to get to me. This one, one from UK that has already shipped and one from Spain that should be shipping this week. I'm rooting for this one to arrive first but secretly hoping they all show up on the same day in some sort of happy coincidence. 

 

That would be grounds for divorce in my house. Glad I'm just waiting on Bones fulfillment. :lol:

I got the Legends of signum game, aria and the free Facebook mini. Was very pleasantly surprised at how quick I got it and they even managed to change my shipping address super last minute! Anyone got pics of the stygian barge?

You know, if I didn't have to move to Texas, I'd offer to be their new "mouthpiece" :) I have ...some... Customer service experience::P: Just saying::o:

 

Sometimes I think quiet might be the best response. 

 

Like when kids in the car have asked for the 5th time "Are we there yet?", and the car is stuck in an unexpected traffic jam. I'm sure the parents are just as annoyed and tired, and want to get to the pool or whatever as the kids. But answering the question yet again, only opens up the possibility of the question being asked a few minutes later. When really the only time it matters is when the parents can finally say "YES!"

I'm looking forward to this arriving, so I can check it off in KS and only worry about pledges that I've backed more recently. The oldest KS I still have outstanding aside from this is Limbo...

That's when you mimic Mr. Incredible and say "We'll get there when we get there!"

You know the phrase "love me, love my pets?" Might have to adopt that as a "love me, love my minis". :poke:

i'm not sure i agree. A quivk 'we've run into some unexpected delays, bear with us' as they run 2 days over their estimated shipping time seems better to me than absolute silence as we all stare at an unmoving tracker

I agree with this in part.  That said, we aren't the  8 year olds in the back seat who can't understand "We should be there in 8 hours."   Followed later by "We got in a traffic jam,   8 hours just became 12."   We were hoping for shipping to begin yesterday, because that's the information given.   While personally I'd rather they spend their efforts on getting them shipped, I do understand the desire for a quick update.   "We hit some delays,  we are working hard to get everything going.   We will give further updates once we have a new estimate."   It wouldn't make everyone happy.   It would resolve the feeling some have due to the target being stated, unmet, and no word.

      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
