You may also want to make a free UPS account. My pledge manager hasn't updated to show that my packages have been shipped. I haven't received an email yet. (Not even in spam!) Even so, UPS is telling me it's got two packages on their way, estimated delivery on Tuesday.

 

I just created a UPS account. No deliveries scheduled for my address...

 

I've got my fingers crossed for you--there's still a lot that could be going on with your order, things like UPS not providing accounts with shipping information that was entered before they were created--but that's definitely sad. I hope you get news soon!

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 just wish he had more weapon options.

EDIT:  Just wanted to add.  its also nice that they are comparable sizes to the D&D counterparts.  I wish Reapers Giants were like that. 

 

To be fair, Reaper Giants are larger than the D&D Giants of that era.  Even early 5E Giants were about the same height as Reaper Giants, it was the "Storm Kings Thunder" prepaint set that supersized D&D Giants again (though all mentioned renditions were easily Huges in 5E terms)

I seem to remember the latest batch of Reaper giants being more tailored to D&D 3 / Pathfinder sizes since the original sculpts were too small.

So, what sort of throughput does it seem like we're getting? Does it seem that they got through about 500 like what they were expecting to do a day?

 

If so, I would say if they do 500 orders a business day (which would be about a half day of EU/CAN/AUS), it would take around 32 more business days to get through all of the orders. That would put the last day at around May 28th for the last day of shipping (estimate). If that estimate holds through. With about 10% of the orders from the original waves being Canadian, my estimate for my stuff (beginning of Wave 6) will be around May 6th.

 

If we begged, do you think they would be willing to post at the end of the shipping day how many they got through? Not an up to date count through out, just a quick "xxx shipped today"? Not holding my breath, but it would be a good consolation for not being able to watch the ticker go.

Comparison between old WotC Balor and Reaper's new Narglauth:

 

20190411_130037.thumb.jpg.b5b683e1517a789c454ae523e35320e7.jpg

 

Definitely like Reaper's better. They're about the same size, but Narglauth doesn't look like he's been scrunched inside a box for most of his life.

 

Not sure why I didn't pledge for this guy or for the terrain.

Im bouncing off the walls. My package was sent out for delivery 4 hours ago.... and Im 4.7n Miles from UPS center. I know they take the LONGGGGGG circuitous route but do they trucks stay out for 8 or more hours in the same drive?????

 

FWIW you can sign up for an account and get a smaller 4 HR window.... Between Now and 3:45 Ill be 400 Bones richer

 

Yah, do not hope for that:) I had a package (granted it was 50lbs) that was 11:45-3:45pm delivery window. What time did it get here??? 6:01PM::o: Thank goodness my duplex has good neighbors.

My delivery window was 8:30-12:00, but it's 2:00 and no UPS is sight. I heard the Fedex truck go by around noon. 

See, proves my point about the 4 hr windows::P:

      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
