    Yeah, just to be clear - the all in would not be for me.

    I'm here for the game, not to "enhance" my pile of unpainted minis ;)

    Strange, that is exactly what I'm buying this for :P

    If one of you hasn't backed the Kickstarter and just wants the base game without miniatures, feel free to send me a message.

    Got my pledge manager email before the update was posted.

    As I suspected shipping direct was expensive, so it's going to my parents in the UK, hopefully it'll arrive by November when I'm planning to visit.

    Possibly a dumb question but what in the collectors box would actually ship in a split shipment?

    Core and Collectors Box is part of Wave 1.

    Scenery pack and Megalodron should hopefully be wave 1 as well.

    Wave 2 is Outcast/Revenant and Reinforcement Packs IIRC

    If I order the outcast expansion as an add on, do I get the fat yuan yuan?

    The Fat Yuan Yuan, along with Uxía, Shinobu and Lei Gong are exclusive of the Platinum Pledge :)

    First, how the hell is shipping 12 kg from Spain to Poland 40 EUR on its own?! 62 EUR for two waves?! :o

    Second, of course we've been casually misinformed, again. "Hurry, hurry, you have to pledge in the Kickstarter to get access to Pledge Manager, whoever doesn't misses out!", repeated over and over by reps on the Comments section of the KS. Now it turns out, pecunia non olet, everyone and their mom can still make an account and pledge. No skin off my back, I pledged 1 EUR to get late access, but if I pledged Platinum I'd be pissed.

    Third, of course there's a huge delay already, three months! It was supposed to be June 2020 and 2nd wave in Autumn. Turns out now it's August 2020 and 2nd wave November. With the complete cheaper delivery on the 2nd date. Which means further unexpected delay may go well into the Christmas shipping mayhem (delayed, lost and damaged packages ahoy) and even past New Year. Those who pledged expecting the game in 7 to 9 months will now get the full thing after a year+.

    I'm holding out until about March 15th and pledging for my stuff then. No way I'm giving CB a free line of credit a month ahead.

    It just seemed wierd that selecting split shipment on just a collectors pledge jacked the shipping price.

    Cheaper than the quote Correos (Spanish postal service) provide for delivery of a 12kg package from Spain to Poland, so I assume they get bulk rates or are able to do it cheaper via a courier.

    Wow, it's (108 PLN) 25 EUR for such a tracked package with Poczta Polska, almost half that :|

    Maybe they are using "Poczta Polska"? They just have to pay the double because the polish mailman has to pick up the orders in Spain and carry them back to Poland?

    But more seriously: You know that different countries have different prices for the same services?

    PS: SCNR

    I am very disappointed by the excessive shipping costs. The amount is more than double what was suggested at the time of the pledge, up to half the value of the pledge itself. But what can I do? I'm already mired in costs sunk. Getting stung on the shipping to this degree months after taking my money is just poor.

    62 for 2 waves to Sweden as well. I don't know why they'd want to inflict the level of management pain it would be to ship with multiple different postal services to different parts of the EU, so more likely they're using a single company to all of EU (and probably a few more places in the world). Also, does Poczta Polska even ship from Spain?

    Yeah, the shipping costs are just unacceptable. 16% of the cost of the Platinum Pledge for single wave, 25% of the Platinum Pledge (!!!) for two-wave?! WTF, Corvus Belli. WTF.

    I never said they did. I'm just saying the prices are exorbitant when compared with the rest of EU, especially for a company that will constantly ships in bulk and surely has business arrangements with worldwide shipping services for their supply chain.

    A company demands twice as much as an off the street customer pays their local post office? Ridiculous.

    Delivery to local FLGS as an option along with usual CB goods shipment would be much cheaper, for one.

    I still remember the apologists upthread going "bUt aLl tHoSe sAvInGs, ThInK AbOuT HoW ChEaP ThE MiNiAtUrEs aRe!".

    With the shipment cost rising with package weight it might just as well turn out that people who pledged for "cheap" reinforcement packs will turn out to have paid more or less the MSRP for them.

    Again, the quoted price is less than an off-the-street customer would pay for a 12kg parcel from Spain to Poland.
