Would really like to know if the UK warehouse got their container today. I guess it won't get it's own update, but maybe someone will drop the info in one of the streams.

Moments ago, Reaper Jon stated on discord that the UK container has arrived in port. That still leaves delivery, sorting, etc., which could still take some time.

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

That sounds about right. Maybe Friday

Unless there's some other arrangement that we're not aware of, such as an agreement about who is permitted to post updates on Bones 5

I of course have other thoughts that should not be shared in polite or impolite company 

Also keep in mind that 14/6 is a public holiday in most Australian states (except WA, I think), so they won't be shipping until at least the 15th.

Per tonight’s Reaper Live, turns out Reaper is waiting on 2 containers in the USA. One should be in the hands of their agent (in Texas?) on Saturday. The other is still in LA, snagged for inspection. This type of snag, on previous shipments, has gone as fast as 2 days, or in the case of Bones 4, as long as 3 weeks (it happened to the last Bones 4 container).


I might have backwards which container is snagged. I vaguely recall something being said that they may be able to get “deep enough” on the inspection with the first container, so the second won’t get held up, too. That makes me think the inspection is actually happening in TX with the first container. 
 

Regardless, one is currently scheduled for inspection, one should be in TX currently, and another is still in LA at this point.

Thanks for the continuous updates, ksb! It's highly appreciated, as I usually don't get to watch Reaper Live. 😄

 

Personally, I don't really mind waiting, but I understand others want to get their hands on their Bones. Personally though, I still have more than enough to keep me occupied, so I'm in no rush. 😉

I'm thinking early to mid July at this point.  Once that container gets to Denton things will start moving real fast.  I hope the employees get the Independence Day weekend off to relax.

Everything shipping late is tradition by now... 

 

This time seems like it is mostly on the global shipping situation though, not on production. Impressive, considering production could've gotten hit during the pandemic too, but they got through that part. Shipping is slowed down on everything, not just this. The containers are in high demand, and there aren't enough moving, or at least not enough flow of them through ports, while ports have extra safety measures in place.

 

Even if this one is later than the others, I am not inclined to be annoyed by the timing overall.

 

Heck, if it delays long enough I may feel like it was worth while again. Been gaming online so long now that the stuff coming seems kinda.... redundant. But if it goes a bit later, we may be in-person again and the figures will be needed!

To be clear, I'm not saying this is anyone's fault or me being disappointed in reaper.  I'm merely trying to keep enthused about getting that big ol box of goodness.   

 

... that and my optimism that it could still be quicker than what i really feel could be the case.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
