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.

      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.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
