Saturday? I thought they didn’t do Saturday delivery 

 

 

Not sure.  When I checked out the Easy Post link in the email from Reaper it says Saturday but when I check the UPS site it doesn't give a date.  Trying not to get too excited about it

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

Quick question for all those US Backers who have received your shipping notice . . . Did you pledge for any of the items on the List of Doom?

I had 4/3 of it (2x frost giants)

Its still tough at first though too!  I was on right when it launched but I hesitated for like 4-5 minutes (I wasn't quite sure how it worked since it was my first KS) and I ended up as backer #427. 

 

They aren't shipping by backer number, they're shipping by wave + when you locked in your FIRST order. For example, @NomadZekewas backer 1 or 2 (something like that, it was a crazy small number), but since he didn't lock in for several months, he'll be near the end of his wave. (not to pick on Nomad, cuz he's a truly awesome dude, his situation was simply a good example of what I was trying to explain)

 

Huzzah!

My Easy post says Tuesday but no date on the UPS site either. To be Safe, I will still book my flight to CO for Saturday... :ph34r:

Yeah I know I was just telling him that even if you are early to the launch that the wave 1 spots go fast.

Found this on the internets (I didn't want to link the article so I just grabbed the important part)

UPS will start making ground deliveries on Saturdays in order to further adapt to the spread of online shopping.

The package delivery service plans to launch the service in April with a goal to cover half the U.S. population by the end of the year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

 

This is from 2017

Hmm, either they're just going by lock-in date and not factoring lock-in time into it, or they might have skipped me. People are getting shipping notifications that locked in hours after me, and I just logged into the pledge manager to confirm that my order definitely hasn't shipped yet. I have everything on the List of Doom, but hopefully that's not an issue already. Finger's crossed that my order hasn't been set aside.

As mentioned up thread, email time stamps may not mean much.  Emails can be delayed by hours or days for a variety of reasons, especially if they're being sent by automated systems. And IIRC, there were some issues with people not getting their confirmation emails for hours after they locked in on that first day in the initial rush.

It’s on the page, should be off to the right and down of the page, may have to click to expand, or click the package details tab. It’s there though:) took me a second to find it too.

      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
