From this afternoon's update:

 

Quote

The last container for the US Zone is STILL in Los Angeles, but our freight representatives have told us that it is being arranged for rail delivery. While that is progress, we still don't have an ETA on when the container will arrive in Dallas. We will keep everyone apprised of its status.

 

I'm glad that it sounds like there's a plan, maybe.  I do wish we had some idea on an ETA, but can totally understand why at this point it's probably best to avoid underpromising and under-delivering again.

Personally I am a little tempted to order the Greek expansion after seeing the figures in video format. I won't, mostly because I will have enough figures for a while and don't really want to pay the shipping. 

 

I wonder if the cannons for the ship will be available separately. If the price was something like 5 for about 10 AUD then they would be fun for some coastal fortifications. 

 

And here I am in AU trying to remember why I bought two of the Greek expansion...I'm sure I had a reason, but not if was a good reason

i do admit to being slightly sad i didn't get that dwarf tomb encounter thing, mostly because the dwarves look very interesting to paint, but not sure i want it enough to buy more things when i don't have my first order yet

No. Don't encourage such behaviour. Its annoying if you can't get the kickstarter due to other reasons and waves are gone too fast. That is not even going into how Australia doesn't really have waves.

This would just annoy me. A better alternative would be giving a freebie for every wave that is filled. Would encourage people to be happy that more people are backing and not curse them as a wave based freebie would. Doesn't help with getting people to back early thought.

Yes, you had a GREAT reason. You can trust me, I'm a stranger on the internet. ::D:

You were going to give Zeus and Hera his and hers hunting hounds? (One Cerby is not enough?)

Agreed. I'd much prefer to not have early bird type bonuses. Just present the offerings and call it good. The way they do stretch goals and additions to the core set seems like reasonable encouragement to join in.

So probably tomorrow for the pledge manager. There are a few things I didnt  get that now I want, such as fan favorites and henchmen and such. Anyone planning to add to their haul? I recommend the encounter sets.

 

I'm not sitting on the fence, more like looking over it.  There's a lot of cool stuff in Bones5 that I would not mind having, but I'm not super excited about.   I think I'm already getting more than I will paint or use, especially as my group doesn't play fantasy often, and I have painted that for decades.  So, no more grumpy little dwarves or elf archers in flowing capes, and I sure as hell don't need any more little goblins or kobolds or whatever.  I'm more into sci-fi and display pieces these days and there are artists in the 3d market putting out some amazing work.  I did get the Chronoscope expansion, even though I have most of the figures in metal already, just so I could show my support for it, but I wish it had held more new figures and less remakes. 

 

I may look at 5.5, but I'm pretty sure I've seen all I want.  Whatever individual figures I might want in a year or two I can get from my FLGS. Gotta keep them in business, right?

Well, the black dragon arrived and it is gorgeous! Cannot wait to get it cleaned and primed, and painted...

Wish there was a Heroclix bunch around here as I would definitely use it for a kaiju.

One cerby was not enough, I do recall that, I just don't recall exactly why

Anyway, it wouldn't be Zeus and Hera, it would be Hades and Persephone ::P:

      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.
