Minions and Maps arrived!

I just wanted to gloat a tiny bit. ;)

Anyone else got theirs?


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Yup. And a spare copy of Tactics and Uprising. Making it my third after the same mix up happened with Wrath. Anyone in the UK want a set?

I think it a terrible injustice that we, loyal and rebellious colonists must wait for our shipments like dogs at the table of Great Britain begging for scraps!

No taxation without representation!

Repeal the Stamp Act!

They said they were going to ship in a different order so I'm not surprised.   However, I imagine that means us loyal and rebellious colonists should be receiving ours within the week.

I got all that and a full set of Tactics + Uprising + Miniatures etc.,(because I only included shipping once when I backed the Kickstarter). The box it all got shipped in was at least half my size!

And, wow, the maps are great! Never thought they'd lie flat, but they do (except the far edges maybe, but that's probably what snackbowls are for).

You know what I don't even care.  Who cares about Citadels and Mars anyway.  If Mars was important it would be part of America already.

Mine arrived today too.  Hooray!  :D  The printing on the Citadel of the Sun map is a bit fuzzy, but it is still readable.  In general, everything looks great.  :)

From the look and smell of it, I'd say it's made of a nylon enforced vinyl weave with stitched edges.

Feels pretty sturdy to me.

It does smell like PVC, and reminds me of vinyl banners/signs.

Every map I ordered has arrived.

 

 

But that's probably not very helpful for those of you who actually ordered maps.

I know mine has shipped, but for some reason it had to go to Kentucky before making it to Indianapolis. (That's all on FedEx, though. )

if they shipped by Fedex,which I assume is the case as normal, you can have fedex send you an email when a package is set to deliver to an address.  You have to register an accoun through their site to get those notices.

The US shipments are going out, but slowly. They won't all be done sending until the middle or end of next week.

UPS claims I'm going to receive something tomorrow. I had not realized, before this thread, what it was.

I have not gotten mine in Ohio.  I know they send by Fedex for the most part and I haven't gotten any shipment notice from them about this.  I can wait though.

Got mine the other day just before the Magic Prerelease. Three guesses as to what we did between FNM and Midnight (first two don't count)! Am I just an ignoramus or are the green-outlined spaces on WMB supposed to have some effect?

All green-outlined spaces grant cover.  Check the Insula Primalis tiles for proof.

The US Minions & Maps shipments are still going out and won't all be out until later this week. We send hundreds out every day, but there are a lot!

Just got mine today, kind of suprised since I had forgotten that I'd added it to my pledge back during the kickstarter. I'm usually hard to surprise, but apparently I surprised me for my birthday, so go me! (now I feel old)

Got mine today. They look good! The shipping box was pretty massive, and no packing so there was a lot of dead space. I dont think any of the packaging looked damaged though.

Some of my maps came out of the box with the side threading already loose and coming apart which was a real bummer. I'll have to see what I can do to fix that to ensure a long shelf life, but that was the only down side I saw.
