Default Ogre Miniatures Series 1 delivery thread

I thought this thread would be a good place for people to announce when their Kickstarter orders arrive.

Nothing here yet, but last night I started gluing up "Heroscape" tiles into an "Ogre" map for them. It'll be about 23.5" x 40" overall, and once glued, is actually rather solid. If it proves a bit flimsy in use or transport, I'll attach it to some foamcore for stiffness. Painting begins later today ...

Someone on my BGG Microgames Geeklist was just today talking about making an Ogre board with HeroScape tiles. Was that you? By the way, are you using the 1/2 depth lava tiles for radioactive crater spaces?

Yes, guilty as charged! I went with a plain 'standard' surface for everything, and have something lined up for the craters -- but no spoilers yet.

Additional:

Since we can't add photos, here is the entry I made at BGG:

Thank You! I love your craters, and I knew I'd seen one before, but I couldn't find it again when I started looking for it.

Next up, perhaps a G.E.V. map ... that one will need nearly twice as many tiles. I also think it will look better if I use just the single tiles, since that also automatically gives you the well defined hex edges.

US - Fulfillment is starting. All packages should be shipped by the end of this week, but we'll know a lot more in the next day or two.

Rest of World - Nothing is shipping yet. The volume of minis was not large enough to make multiple containers an option, so items are being shipped to US backers and then forwarded on to the next stage in the process.

Looking forward to being able to replace the cardboard Vatican Guards Huscarl that patrols my computer desk with a plastic one!

Got my tracking number today, delivery expected Friday after next.

In one year I've got Deluxe G.E.V. (the big boards plus the large classic counters from W23), the Ogre computer game (I gifted a copy to a friend so I bought it twice), and now toy plastic units. Ogre was the game that got me into gaming (after chess I suppose). Words cannot express how pleased I am with these things. A thousand thank yous to all who made these things possible.
