With the announcement the game is shipping now, anyone here some of the lucky few that got a shipping notification? I didn't, so I'm hoping to live vicariously through you!

Yes by all means tell everyone you are receiving your stuff while most of us are still waiting. We all promise that no one here who "might" have bad feelings or insecurities about this project will transfer any of those feelings onto you. You Commie, Mutant, Traitor Scum...

Personally I am very excited by the news and look forward to receiving my stuff where ever I end up in the shipping queue. If your one of those first on the shipping list I really hope you enjoy the game that you helped make possible. Thank you everyone.

Comment: Coiner of "Gencon Suicide Pact"
Good luck to those who are getting theirs, I won't be for quite a while since Palladium is going with little orders first (and for once, this is something that actually makes sense in this fiasco).

Mine is now sitting on my desk next to me hehe going to wait till I get home as I don't want to risk losing any bits at work. I have to say the box for this thing is pretty darn big.

If you don't mind me asking, what was your backer number and what did you order?

Got my shipping notice last night, Scheduled Delivery: Thursday, 10/30/2014, By End of Day. Showdown reward.

I may take a day off next week to work on these, as we have a huge event planned for our Pittsburgh convention, GASPcon (http://www.gaspgamer.com/?page_id=36).

Thanks,

Good to hear they have started on US showdowns. Considering how long/how many Battle Cry boxes got tagged for US delivery, I wonder if "ROW" numbers are higher in Showdowns (better price per box when accounting for both the lower per unit price and the lower per unit shipping), thus meaning the US ones will go by quickly?

Guess we'll find out in the coming weeks. In theory, roughly half of backers should have their stuff in the mail now.

got a phone call today to confirm the shipping address (it's going to my brother's place, he has a small town PObox so it looks a little odd)

also, i'm not sure that "few" counts any more, since going by the announcements they've shipped over 2000 of the orders so far.. which is about a third of the total # who pledged.

Wow, a phone call.... sounds like they are really trying to make sure they are doing it right. Quite a time sink, but in some folks case I'm sure they'd be far more irate to see something get delivered to a place they no longer live or with a typo in the address.

If they've shipped 2000, that was I would THINK the 2000 easier ones. The rate of packages out the door will be going down as complexity increases, until they spend multiple man hours on nutjobs like myself that spent too much to support the idea of a RRT miniatures game :)

Glad to see some assembled models out there, some *GREAT* paint jobs, and overall a pretty happy feeling about what people have gotten. Very few game reports, but hopefully those will come as armies get finished.

it came in at 9:30 am my time, probably right as they were getting ready to print a batch of shipping labels. woke me up and i almost didn't understand what was being asked at first.. i tend to be a zombie if woken up early (and lately i've been slipping into night-owl habits, staying up way too late then sleeping in)

and i don't blame them for going with smaller orders first.. one would expect the majority of orders were for battlecry's and such, and smaller orders first mean that they can get more out fast.. which given how some of the backers' have been doomsaying about whether they were going to deliver at all, they needed to get as many out as quickly as possible to prove that they are taking this seriously.

By the numbers they've given, it's more like 1/2 or more, roughly 2,900 boxes.

~2,700 Battle Cry boxes (roughly 1,000 with C2, 1,700+ with C3) and the ~200'ish Core Box only and other random (decals only, Destroid box only) backers.

Unless they added hundreds of backers during the post KS opportunity when they allowed it to happen. By those numbers, it seems either this campaign wasn't very popular internationally, or US backers represented a massive portion of the BC's.

My Showdown arrived yesterday, 23lbs of awesome goodness. Our gaming group is tackling the painting of the 75+ minis we'll need for our big convention game in 2 weeks. We're doing a sprue exchange program, I handed out "X" sprues to each person, and they'll paint the minis for the game (and keep them afterwards), returning to me "X" sprues of the same type I gave them. It's the only way we can have that many minis painted and ready.

Hey Silvermoon.

Just some thoughts, since I do not know your situation. I drove to the warehouse
to get mine, because I was moving, and did not know where I would be moving to
until very recently. I was not about to let a change of address card at the
post office control my order. O.o

Anyway, on that note. Have you double checked to make sure your address was correct?

Also, what did you order. They started with Battlecry orders because they are the easiest.
And are working their way up. Showdowns are going to be shipping soon, then Reckless
and then all the really big orders.

Beyond that, you should definitely contact them and see what the status is. The Kickstarter Updates usually have several ways to contact them.

I would call the office. They will help you out no problem. I spoke with Mathew, who was able to get my package sorted out.
