Only is annoying because I thought I had already dodged it. I was pretty accepting of it when they first announced there was a delay related to power ups.


Same, only really annoyed because they had basically told me I was in the clear. But, neither of those items were power-ups. They were regular add-ons that were revealed during the campaign. 
 

I can see how the mistake was made, and they failed to tell us last week. But at the same time, if they know that the big order from the factory contains some of those items packaged for Kickstarter, and some of those items packaged for retail, I would’ve expected that they would open those boxes and see which version was received, before confirming what items are and are not held up...

and here we are in AU, where the distributor has had everything for over a month, and [redacted] are [redacted]

 

I may be a little peeved about this (on top of the excessive shipping charges we had to pay because we were billed as if items were being shipped from the US)

Have you talked to Reaper about the shipping charges to see what they were thinking when they made that decision?   Reaper does not always get things right, so hopefully they are open to your concerns.

Have they said how many orders got processed today? Or what backer number they are up to?

Came here to find out the same thing or if there's a counter page this go round. I may just have to fire up twitch tomorrow on my phone or something.

No, the ticker was not running. Some kind of tech issue they hope to have fixed tomorrow. 

 

Several pallets of orders went out this morning before the regularly scheduled Pro Tips at 11:30 followed by a lunch break.  After lunch they refilled the bins and boxes they were pulling from and then the stream went to Rhonda Bender's regularly scheduled show.  Near the end of that we were told they had quit for the day after setting up for tomorrow, and expected to start early. 

 

It was not possible to see the packing area or pallets clearly and count how many orders went out. 

 

I expect (based on previous projects) it will be the end of the week before hiccups are worked out and they are packing at full speed.

If I make an allowance and assume that our GST makes up part of the cost (which should be listed separately) then it becomes marginally more acceptable.

 

Still doesn't change the fact that the distributor is making Reaper look bad through their inability to ship in a reasonable timeframe.

Awww dang it, dragon folk got me.  Think I'm going to stop with the hype thread until the boxes actually get here, the hype/disappointment yo-yo is outweighing the fun of it.

I'm not worried about wave # or delays.

Reaper has gotten me my new toys 4 other times, I'm sure I'll get them this time, too.

Listen to the wisdom of the Drunken Wolf

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kontraros/order-of-cthulhu
       
      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):
