The whole Ed Post in the spoiler, there's quite a bit of information in it: 

 

Spoiler

While this is not an official update, I’m going to shed some light on a few things.

1) What should I do about defects, missing parts, or missing order items?

Send an email to our customer service department at [email protected] Our team will take care of you.

2) UPS just sent me a notification that my order is going to my old address. What should I do?

Go to UPS MyChoice and redirect it https://www.ups.com/us/en/services/tracking/mychoice.page?

3) What are the EU and UK start dates?

We are confirming AU is still July 5th. The UK has their container and is getting ready, but no hard date at this moment. We will have one next week.

4) Where is the last container for the US Warehouse?

The last container is still stuck in Los Angeles.

We are working each day to break this log jam. I hope for word on Tuesday when everyone returns back to work.

5) Why are some Waves going back and forth?

Shipments are combined and stacked in the order pulling queue. They are then printed in batches. “Wave hopping” sometimes does occur. Simple examples that can cause this are the picker/puller grabs a pull ticket from the wrong stack or from the back of the stack (printed pull tickets are stacked in a tray on their sides). We try our best. The good news is that we are usually done pulling in a few weeks.

6) Why is Canadian shipping different this time?

We have used UPS to get shipments into Canada every KS except KS1. UPS prepares shipping options based on the data for Canada. Location, package count, sizes, weights etc. They in turn present the options to us. We will generally choose the cheapest option that still balances service with price.

In the past it was cheaper for us to use the service in which we imported the packages to ourselves as a non-resident importer. This option required Reaper to pay the 5% GST as the importer. We were unable to collect or bill backers for the 5% GST we paid as we are not registered with Canada to collect anything. In summary, it was cheaper for us to pay the GST to send your package.

I do not know what changed between Canada and the USA, but this time the service we used in the past was substantially more expensive than direct service. Direct service is a better option and came with better tracking and UPSMyChoice. There are NO duties on US products. In the end, you are paying your local sales tax and GST and an entry fee based on the size of your order.

I'm in this group with you.  I can see the anxiety is causing you a lot of distress.   You say you don't have a huge backlog of figures to paint, but you do have some, right?  Instead of focusing on Bones5, which you have no control over, how about turning your attention to something you DO have control of?  There must be something you CAN do, like painting figures, or drawing, or scrubbing the shower, or yanking weeds out of the ground.  Even a short term project can help calm that agitation building up inside you.  Do something you know you can finish and reap that satisfaction and peace of mind, if just for a few hours. 

 

 

sorry. This kickstarter and these new minis was going to be the one bright happy point in a otherwise incredibly crappy and depressing year. But of course the universe decided that even that is not for me.

No need to apologize. It HAS been a crap year.  Don't let your anxiety get the better of you. You can do that. [HUGZ]  PM me if you need to vent, or want a care package.

Getting frustrated because frustrating things are happening is valid, and I'd argue healthy (I think my therapist would, too). I'm willing to contribute to a care package, as well. I've inherited a lot of figures that I'll likely never paint, so I'd be more than happy to send them to someone who will. @Sirithiliel Feel free to send me a PM, too, and I'd be happy to talk about what I have to offer.

i don't want to come off as if i'm begging for miniatures, you guys are kind to offer care packages

You don't come off that way, at all. I am fortunate enough to be able to offer some kind help, and am happy to do so. It's been a rough year for me, too, so I can relate with that kind of frustration.

Is there anyone smarter than me that could work out what scale (like 1/72 1/35) the pirate ship is?

Assuming that it is 28mm scale, that makes it approximately 1/56th.

That makes perfect sense, i can't believe i didn't work that out now🤣

 

I remember hearing on one of the Twitch broadcasts that the ship was given a subtle but, discernible  1 inch grid in its deck planking. (For use in D&D / RPGs.) All things with a WOTC inspired one inch grid are always therefore:

 

1 / 60

 

…also known as 1 inch equals five feet. (Five feet is 60 inches. 5 x 12 = 60.)

 

I also remember @Reaper_Jon using a measuring stick against the ship a few times but I could never work out the exact points he was measuring between.

But that length was always 31 inches (or 155 feet which is in the ballpark for a small frigate, a 6th rate).

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.
