Yup, no checklist, but I thought it was weird that on the packing label it actually had an estimated value. Don't remember that before.

Probably to aid in international shipping, but just made uniform for all packages.

That was my thought as well. Speaking of thoughts, since they are doing a PM 5.5 and the molds are already done, I think they should add things like DDS2 and the weapon sprues:) I mean, isn't that the whole point of the Kickstarters? To make molds to sell models? If a lot of these things are turning into one shots, why are we doing them? If they don't want to stock them because of cost, why not set them up as a pre-order? They have the molds, right? What do you say @Reaper Ron and @Reaper_Jon?

ETA: Unless I get lucky, and the driver doesn't want to trip over my packages. I've had that happen with larger packages before - he'll stop in on his way into town to get the big boxes off his truck ASAP. 

I got lucky, they just arrived. 

Interestingly enough, my Pirate Ship box has TWO different shipping labels attached to it.  One to me, and one to someone in Farmington NM.

Was there any info on how many packages the UK/EU hub has already gotten out this week? Trying to guesstimate my chances of getting a notification next week as a wave 2 EU backer.

According to their instagram, they have 2700 orders to fulfil from the UK hub. Just over 700 people pledged int he "wave 1 UK" pledge level. So wave 1 doesn't help that much for our hub, since 1/4 of people are at that wave. When they get through that wave, they'll probably progress through the other waves relatively quickly (wave 2 UK just has 400 backers in comparison). How many EU backers are in each wave is hard to know, since we pledged with the US waves.

So I let Reaper know what happened, and I found the person on FB who didn't get her ship when she posted she was still waiting for it.

Yes, clear.  What's also cool is that the base is hollow, so electronics could easily be added.

 

I'm hesitant to paint mine, as the material is exceptionally clear and crystal like as it is, and almost looks like quartz crystal straight out of the packaging.

Dang, that's cool - I really should've gotten one.

You didn't get a core set? It was part of it (and you could also order extras during the PM).

Nope. I went pretty big (for me) on this KS, but the core set did not make the cut (lost out to the ship). I decided to focus on expansions and add ons this time around. I did pick up a few core "extras", but somehow I overlooked getting that dragon for a few bucks. Retail it is!

$72 of customs fees, $10 of brokerage fees. Blergh. Oh well. Delivery estimate is still Monday. Sure hope they stick to Monday!

Woohoo, finally a shipping notification!

 

45.6 pounds arriving next Tuesday.

 

I'm Wave 7.  Hopefully all you Wave 1 and 2 people have your stuff on the way.

 

Can't wait to use my spreadsheet to actually check off my own minis. 😛

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      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. 👀
