Still no shipping notice here, I'm beginning to feel a little bit left out! Is there a prize for being the last forumite to get their minis? ::P:

 

Still waiting for mine too Kuroneko, it is frustrating.

 

Even worse I've had a whole slew of phishing emails saying; "You owe customs duty on a parcel, just send us your bank dtails..."

Aaand... That's why you don't ship things in boxes not up to the rigours the postal and/or courier system will put it through. 

 

Sure hope the driver marked that as damaged - with the condition of that box, it shouldn't even have been loaded into the vehicle for delivery... 

 

Initial look, I don't think there is one. I'm gonna do a quick inventory here in a few, just to see if anything jumped out of the hole. Hopefully it's either nothing, or normal Kickstarter missing pieces. I don't think, I've had a KS from Reaper with everything that was correct. I can handle that, stuff like this, I might be a little bit more peeved. Totally understand why they re-used box & I appreciate that (so does the Earth) but yah I totally agree with your statement regarding its usage.

Ok, after a initial check off a paste & copy list of my pledge manager, everything I order is in the box. Luckily, either the Brinewind Extra (vary large ziplock bag) or Encounter at Mandupar Pass was behind the hole (pretty sure it was BrWd X) so nothing really could get free. I cut off the side the hole was on. All the box sets were in perfect condition as well. I will of course do a through look through of the bags & boxes tomorrow & over the weekend. For now, I need sleep for AL night at the FLGS. We are restarting with tier 1 stuff (kinda wish it was tier 2 or 3 as I wanted to play my artificer one last time, eh oh well). I think I'm either gonna bring in a dwarf fighter 1/cleric 1, dwarf cleric level 2 or a goblin wizard level 2. I guess we'll see what the table needs.

 

Also was the Core set bases all in one ziplock bag? I got all my bases that I ordered + a extra bag with both 1 & 2 inch bases in it.

Not to be TOO much of a fanboy (I even changed my KS ID to "Reaper Fanboy just to poke a finger in the eye of a troll on the KS), but I think it is important to distinguish between Reaper's QA (which is excellent, IMO), and that of the Chinese factory producing the minis and packages (which I think is spotty at best). For example. I have the wierd thing going on with the Arakoth legs (2 sets of #2, no #3 set,), and one of myRune Wights sets has 2 with sword and shield, and no archer.

 

Aside from that, I appreciate the extra mermaid (holding orb) in Dark Depths, and the extra Rakshasha (male) in Fan Favorites.. Does anyone know anything about the 4th doxy (seated) for Brinewind? It was mentioned in one of the KS updates, and I was wondering if that was cancelled, or if I am missing her?

The seated Doxie was cancelled for reasons. Not sure, but I think it had to do with getting it to seat on the bed correctly.

Yes, the core set bases were in one bag. I think it was about 25 2-inch and 50 1-inch.

Shame about the doxies indeed... so which three is it then that made the final cut? I seem to remember there was something wrong with the bed, but then I thought they sculpted another figure, and then tried to fix the first sculpt, but didn't? Or was it some other way around? ... I don't remember that part.

This was going to be the fourth one. Again, nice design, too bad she did not make it.

Too sexy, maybe?

The update saying UK/EU fulfillment is just 25% complete is just a bit of a bummer. They've been on it for 2 weeks now and are, apperantly, also not going by (strictly) wave order, as many wave 1 backers still wait while later waves have their stuff.

Go figure, and I knew it would happen, I checked the camera on the front door as I was walking out of the building from work and no delivery.

 

In the 5 minutes it took for me to get home, UPS delivers.

 

Now the task of verifying everything is here and figuring out where to put it all.

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
