I don't know where you got those UPS Canadian brokerage rates from, but here is what they put on their website, and what I usually see them charge.

 

Hate them so much. Rather deal with USPS any day.

Agreed on both counts.

 

Yet I'll still be happy to get new toys.

They're UPS's retail rates. Reaper's rates are something that they've negotiated with UPS for these shipments.

Don't worry, our hate of UPS fees will remain undying.

 

It's all part of standard Sith Lord training. That and dealing with telecom service over the phone.

At least I was only shaken, and not stirred.

Wait. So now we managed to get UPS mad at us too?

 

That isn’t hard trust me. We have numerous ups picks up and deliveries at my work daily and they all seem to have an opinion on how we should load or help them unload.

You know, the fire giant was probably the purchase I was most iffy about - I don't know why, but just something about the pose was all flat and very undynamic, I think, to me - but man, I like that picture! Im regretting that one less now, there is way more depth to that then I thought.

Are they doing the shipping counter again? I don't remember if there was one last time. I thought there was but it was weirdly not obvious to get to, or I am confusing that with bones 3. Not sure.

I think they are just attaching a counter to Twitch this time around; it seems to be available during the livestreams.

 

... I am only just realizing now that I actually bought several transparent minis but never got around to buying the inks. Guess those won't be first on my list.

Same Nunae. I'd love to know more. I can't imagine why nobody in the UK hub is updating Jon.

They have the containers in, you would assume they can share updates on their progress or predictions of what they're doing.

Heck, even a photo of an empty warehouse where they're setting up would be something I'd be very happy with.

 

Containers missing is information you can't get, but a general planning for something you have in-house in another department / hub, would be something I would expect to get.

 

That said: I'm loving all these photo's of people receiving their stuff!

The uk hub (according to a reaper support email i received when i emailed them) does not have their second container.

Went to the Kickstarter page and looked at the comments.  Word of advice: DON'T DO THAT! 

RANT WARNING!

Good grief!  The amount of entitled whining and sniveling is off the charts.  One person wants Reaper to compensate them because they're in Wave 1 but other people got their toys first!!  Another claims they took time off from work to camp in front of their computer to be sure they got Wave 1, but other people are getting their toys before them and it's not fair!!  Sheesh...  I also love the people that somehow expect a small US company to be able to predict how International politics and global events are going to play out TWO YEARS IN THE FUTURE, and have everything planned out so that they, the customer, are not inconvenienced,  Grrr...

Really? o.o

They mentioned last time we got updates there were a total of 2 containers, 1 was in, 1 was on the way and had passed the border checks and such.

I'm pretty sure it was said the container had arrived at the facility aswell, but not entirely sure on that anymore.

 

@Reaper_Jon can you share what info you have, or persue some information from the UK hub to supply us with more information?

      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!
