Then they should close the PM now so everyone gets what they ordered, not keep it open till 12/1 and come april 2021 say, OH sorry, we don't have that available, here's a GC so you can get it in another year to 18 months. I am sorry, I have worked in retail/wholesale for almost 4 decades, and this just seems like a bad way to go.

Agreed!

 

I thought they hired a guy to manage social media and external communications. Yet even today, disparate forms of communication and lack thereof in the channel seems to continue. Because this communicating in one place and not through official channels is precisely how it was going before they hired a guy so that job’s not getting done. I’m not going to watch reaper live.

Bearing in mind that I do not work at Reaper HQ and thus have no insider knowledge of the particular peculiars of shipping from the main US hub to the UK hub, I'm not sure how you would get a situation where you would have to pay VAT twice.  If it goes to the UK hub and then gets shipped to you as the rules currently stand, then you would pay VAT or not depending on local trade agreements in place.  If it goes to the UK hub and then to you with altered rules, then you would still only pay VAT upon entry to your country if your country is a VAT applicable state.  If it went to an EU hub, and you are in a VAT or VAT zone, then you would pay VAT.  In all of these scenarios, you only pay the VAT once.  If this were not the case, then any time I (in a VAT country) bought something that transited through a hub in a second country (for clarification, let's say also a VAT country) then I would pay VAT twice or more - but this situation has never arisen, I only pay once upon entry into my country.   

 

There may be some peculiar local rules for your zone I am not aware of, but if you can more precisely refine how you think a situation might arise for double VAT then it would be easier to get you a specific answer for your concern.  

 

Well, the last time I backed Bones, VAT was already included in what I paid Reaper, so it was shipped to the EU and I didn't need to pay the mailman anymore.

Now if we do this now, that will only count for arriving at the UK.

Since the UK by then has left the EU, it is unclear what will happen then, the UK could ask me for VAT again since they now have to ship it to the EU.

I know it's a small chance but I would like it to be clear.

 

Anyway, with Covid/Brexit and all that's going on, I have started to back 3d files KS only.

Those I can download and I will not have to worry about delays and VAT and such, maybe later when things have cooled down I will back a physical ks again.

Okay, thanks for the clarification.  I'll see if I can rustle up a clear answer on this, or at least whatever is presently known about the potential situation.

Thanks, I might be wrong about it, it's just unclear to me.

And since the latest Brexit talks are again as clear as a puddle of mud it's unclear what kind of deals or no-deals we can expect.

So I understand why Reaper wouldn't be able to answer that part.

I would like to know if they're able to use a different EU hub to prevent all the uncertainty.

The only folks who are going to need to be concerned about substitutions are the backers who close out their pledges after December 1. I don't expect that anyone in this forum will need to worry about substitutions. 

 

And there will be backers who forgot to close out their peldge or didn't know the December 1 cut off. And we will do our best to accommodate those backers as best we can to get them what they ordered.

 

Inevitably, there will be backers who *never* close out their pledge. We still get folks contacting us telling us that they never got their Vampire Set from Bones 1. Not kidding.


@Reaper Ron Thank you for the information. 
 

If I can ask you one more question while you’re here, people have been asking for clarification as to what material the Add-Ons will be for months. All we have been told is that bigger stuff is in Bones and smaller stuff is in Bones Black. This is too vague. Some of us would like to know what material we are actually purchasing. Is it possible to get a table showing the materials of the various pieces in this KS, particularly before December 1st?

Thank you for clarifying that @Reaper Ron, Ed just didn't clarify enough I think on Reaper Live! We really need those "official" answers here in the forums like Ladystorm did here in the kickstarter information threads.

I don't see why we couldn't do that. We'll get that going!

We are really trying to be better about "official" answers here. We certainly understand that there is a ton of information spread out over multiple outlets. Too many irons in the fire! ::):

Thanks for the clarification, as it eases a lot of concerns.  It's been a rough year financially (to say the least), but the mere thought of having something arbitrarily substituted really riles me up, because such kind of defeats the whole point of picking choices in the pledge manager alongside having a set close date for said PM. 

 

Any word on additional bases, such as 74048, 74032, and 74033 being added into the pledge manager?  Or the lipped ones (74023 for example)?

Update will be out tonight, as soon as its posted I will post it here! (as well on the news section, and info thread)

https://clips.twitch.tv/TemperedMistyTardigradeRuleFive

Early backer: $125
Late backer: $145
There are only 500 available, Ron said that they will go up on the RPM later tonight, as soon as he can. ( i know he will be doing it the same time as the KS update write up for the website)(Ron also said that if all 500 goes out over night, we will talk about adding more. We are not making them scarce on purpose, it has to do with the material cost and the limited quantity to order. So if we buy 2000 and only 50 people get it, its not good) 

Ton of the Daimyo expansion was show tonight, photos will be on the Update. (photos still being taken of the other parts of it)

Aaugh!

 

Time has gotten away from me...better get cracking on those purchases.  Luckily, I've been keeping them selected in the PM, so hopefully Reaper could get a decent idea of how many to order.

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
