I might be remembering things wrong, but I think that the last Kickstarter ran one expansion at a time without much - if any - overlap between them, and the way the maps look so far, I suppose that'll be the case this time.  No reason it HAS to be that way, though:  I think the first couple Kickstarters did run the expansions side-by-side.  I don't know if Reaper has any advantage in running it one way vs. the other, and they do seem to have tried things a little different in every Kickstarter to see what happens....

 

 

KS 2 ran the expansions at the same time, at it did not work well.  Since we only saw a little bit at a time it was hard to get excited about spending 50$ on the smaller selections.  There was lots of complaining (as always) but little postive said to balance it out. I think they have gotten better results from finishing each one before the others arrive. I know I like this system better. 

I bought 0, 1 then 2  of the expansions - this time we will see.  I don't need this one, but if there is a greek expansion it is going to get a long look.

At the very end of the live stream tonight, Ed said they are trying to work on setting up something with a fulfillment house in Germany to handle Europe.

It would be great if information like this was available outside their live stream.

 

Tapping the brakes a little...

 

Ed also said, ‘...there is no one that can tell us how shipping... [charges/ or taxes/ or customs] ...will work...’ nine months or a year from now. 

 

Now that is a paraphrase. (They also said the whole 7 hour stream would go on YouTube....so it ought to be possible to verify my wobbly memory.)

 

(IMO) The two things to keep in mind are: Reaper will hunt for the option that minimizes everyone’s shipping costs (but there are limits); Reaper won’t go broke or wreck it’s profits absorbing shipping costs. 

 

 

TLDR: A Germany-based fullfillment hub is not a certainty or a commitment at this point. It is just an option being given consideration.

 

I like that they appeared to have learned from the Brexit scare with Bones 4 where they locked themselves and us European backers into shipping from the UK farely early. We paid 19% extra for import fees into the UK, and then they tried to kinda rush it through before the first Brexit deadline, but where lucky the Brits delayed or else we might have payed more fees. I was kinda disappointed they wouldn't wobble or reconsider their original plan back then, so it's good they're just putting us EU people just in with the US waves right now. 

 

If they get another hub from Germany or the Netherlands or another EU country - great. If not, I'll pay my import fees myself when importing from the US, that's just fair. Prepaying those fees and THEN not knowing if it'll go through unbothered by custom agents and more fees was what got us to complain last time around.

There is a Catoblepas in the current Volo's Guide to Monsters, so it's updated to 5th Edition.

Doesn't help that much for B/X D&D.

One of mine is about 7 feet away. I could send something by PM. 

Cool!

 

Think we'll get to see a pirate ship today?

I think they’ll save that until the end, like they did the barge.  Help build the energy at the end.

 

Edit:  Though looking at the current map, it does end by the ocean, so...

They keep back pedaling that, so no. 

 

But, an Oriental Junk pirate ship would not surprise me. There are already a lot of options for Galleon / West Indies looking ships.

That would be amazing, and I'd be perfectly willing to consider that a pirate ship and move on to more important requests like a dire hamster.

I agree, last couple of days makes the most sense.

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
