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.

Reaper gets it done, they don't have control over shipping delays and global pandemics. They are doing pretty good, all things considered.

Aye. Not worried at all here.

I have plenty enough toys while I wait (especially with all my printers).

Wave 1, Backer #1 here! I’m in the EU so thankfully no missing containers, only problem is I’ll be out of town/country until the end of August…

 

I emailed Reaper and Kit from the UK hub said they’ll hold my package until I come back! So generous of them!

 

But now I have to wait another couple months… my own fault for traveling for work hah!

REAPER HURRY SIRI IS ABOUT TO DIE!! If you paint all your minis you die! Get her the new ones ASAP!

Good thing even mini painters always have that "emergency box"...  Y'know, the one in a safe location that you forgot about a few years ago? 

 

I have a few of those now, but I'm also a tabletop wargamer and given the 200 some minis that recently came in plus the gunpla I should be good for now. 

 

Besides, I'm wave 9 so all I know is the UPS guy will finally go "yes, no more packages for the fox!" and then Reaper will ship out my small Bones V box... :devil:

I’m assuming wave 1 is still being worked on and will likely go until EOD Tuesday or early Wednesday? 

 

Oh boy.  Different acronym pool…where I work, COB is the end of the day, EOD is Explosive Ordnance Disposal, and I’m hoping that my Bones will not be disposed of by remote detonation.

Wow!  Congrats!  No “blockers” in your order, I guess?

Mine should be here tomorrow...  why do I have sooooo many meetings tomorrow?  It's going to be so hard to focus while waiting for the doorbell to ring.  Haven't told the kids yet so Thursday should be fun digging through everything with them.

Thank you.

  Apparently not.   I didn’t go in for a lot of the power ups, and the pirate ship in any form was just too much of a storage issue for me. 
  Bones 5 always seemed so far off and intangible. Now I’m a bit in a stunned state at the realization all those minis are going to be in my house this week!!! ::o::blink:

I have no restraint. I expect to be able to use my box as additional living space - a guest room perhaps

I expect my cat will not know what to do with herself with a box that big😝

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)

 

I get the distinct impression that Reaper changed their mind about "whatever hub is ready first will start shipping" and "hubs will only start shipping when everything is received" when it appeared that both the AU and UK hubs would be shipping first........

Suddenly news on the AU and UK hubs went quiet and disappeared into limbo and then the US hub miraculously starts shipping even though stuff is not all there.

 

If Reaper had said from the beginning that nothing would ship until the US hub was ready then I'd be fair enough......as it is I feel this is a joke, deliberately holding up other countries deliveries just because some americans might complain about not being first in line.

Tried looking back a few pages, aside from the pirate ships, did they say what other items would be causes to hold up orders?

I believe it's the following (got it from the kickstarter update comments):

"It's the Dragon Folk, Rune Wights, Bust Collection, Campground Scenics, & Ghost Ship"

The shipping contracts with UPS had to start before July, or be renegotiated. Ed mentioned it in one of the streams last week (I think the Q&A stream). I highly doubt this was some underhanded means of ensuring Americans got their stuff first. 

 

I think Reaper just honestly thought things wouldn’t be held up in shipping as long as they’ve been.

Awesome, thank you! That's good and bad news.. I don't think I have any of those.. but that puts me at a greater rush to find a place to put them! Luckily I didn't go as crazy with this one as I did IV.

      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):
