Yup, pledge now a little bit. Once KS is closed in November you get charged for that amount. The Pledge Manager will open shortly afterwards, and you can add more money in through the year.

 

For Mexico, you'd be Americas. Pacific would be more for places more westerly islands like Fiji.

You will be in the Americas shipping zone. Be very glad the Pacific folks took several weeks longer than us to get their Bones 4 last time. Welcome to the place!

Grrrreat thanks! Now im picturing a guy sitting atop a moai waiting for his packages...

I think that sounds about right, Nunae!  Certainly, based on the fulfillment shipping from the Kickstarters in the past, most of the orders seemed to go to the U.S., followed by Canada and the UK, and then perhaps Latin America.  

 

Yeah...I don't know how other people fare, but in my city (roughly 100k pop) there is like 30 or so in the loop...

I suspect the original would have been more like Kah-tah-bleh-pahs, since it comes from "καταβλέπω, (katablépō)". But by the time we reach later Gygaxian, it's unclear what the preferred pronunciation would have been. :B):

 

I henceforth pronounce the period from 1974 to 1989 "The Gygaxian Age".

I know that there has been some grumbling about no unlocks overnight. But in addition to the whole, "sleep is good" thing, I think that Reaper was scrambling a bit at the end of the day.

 

From previous comments, they plan the beginning of the campaign, then based on how that's going they refactor and plan more. It's my impression that they blew through all of their planning, including their contingency planning, by yesterday afternoon. So it seems likely to me that some quick meetings probably needed to happen before we get on to the next unlocks.

 

In particular, I suspect that unlock breakpoints will need to be figured out, the order of unlocks will need to be adjusted, and possibly some emergency art orders will need to go out. Last night might have been very busy in Denton without anything being visible from outside the company.

I guess they are still in emergency meetings as they didn't expect us to reach the third map until the beginning of the middle slowdown and now have to plan quickly for what happens after that map.

 

(Wild speculation)

I mean it ends on the ocean, so they were obviously planing to have the pirate ship revealed during the slow days to bring some push to them. And now we might reach it much sooner...

Agreed. I don't think they expected to hit $1M in the first 7 hours. I bet there was a lot of scrambling, and nailing down of things that were stuck on a board with tape. Today will slow down a bunch, so hopefully they'll have a chance to actually catch up. 

 

I do kinda miss the videos they did in Bones 1.

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go

      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):
