Erik,
Thanks for the update. There has been no update (at least for non Polish speakers) since Christmas eve.  You are the first person I have read in US that has received shipment.  I assume you did the metal option, I went for the plastics  (all-in option).  Now waiting impatiently for the fulfillment.

Glad to hear the figures are nice 'in the flesh.'   Do you have a favorite?

I recall a post-Christmas update mentioning shipping was on, but yes, nothing in about two weeks.

Still waiting on mine (also all-in plastics), but not worried. They've always been very professional chaps.

I had a few email conversations with them. They are drowning in the warehouse trying to get everything shipped and have been since November. Hang in there, I do not get the impression that they are unreliable, just overwhelmed and doing their best.

My favorite is Gerhard, the guy holding the chicken head. But I hate the chicken head so I cut it off and I will put on a small shield.

There are a lot of very cool ones.  I especially like the guys dueling with sabers.

I am really looking forward to receiving these figures.  Well, the game too - but especially the figures!

I have done previous Kickstarters with them, they are solid.

Also, they're bigger than just their minis business as they own several game stores in Poland. So they have a bit of added stability and staff from that, though as you say, things are pretty heavy right now with all the KS fulfillment.

Point being I'm not in the least worried, especially with others getting their boxes.

I fell in for the plastic version, but haven’t received anything, yet. Not worried, though, as they did make a very robust appearance through the Ks. updates came slowly and sometimes slower than promised, but alway steadily and they did demonstrate considerable progress.

I'm All-In for the plastic version and really looking forward to them.  My 25-yrs old son and daughter are both also looking forward to playing the game.  Fingers crossed they will arrive soon.

Yep, exactly.

Also, when they sent out an update asking questions about shipping methods, they said to email them if we needed anything specific for customs, etc. and Michael answered my request almost straight away. A small thing, but I was impressed how fast that reply came considering the thousands of KS backers.

Don't worry, these guys have been quite legitimate thus far.  Your minis will arrive.  Be patient.  :-)

My minis just arrived 2 days ago.

Your multiple reassurances as to the bonafides of the company are kind. But no-one actually said they were worried in the least ;)

Yeah, I think it is more frustration on a fall down in what had been an exemplary series of updates, (126 in number).  In my own view, people are trying to keep things in perspective, but it can seem like a 'rush on the bank.'

Good to remind each other this, as most companies that supply the hobby, are definitely small scale enterprises often swinging above their weight.

Still, dammit, I want my Zagloba! Vivat;)

Update went out that they have finished sending out all the Polish packages (35% of the total), which went out first since they were easier and quicker to do, and now the English ones will be going out.

It's funny how apologetic they are for doing something perfectly sensible (domestic packages require no customs information and can all use the same packaging postage, thereby getting more sets to more backers as quickly as possible). I suppose they're keenly sensitive to the fears of backers who've been burned before on other KS projects, or who've seen that happen.

Sorry, I have to say, I love Polish people. I find them a blast to work with and they have such a great sense of art, history, science, and passion.

I'm watching by fire and sword with my 7-year-old right now who is a little frustrated it's not in English but it's the best I can do right now.

And I was lucky enough to get my figures already. They're pretty good.  I made a second order, as well. my three Musketeers have just been primed and the bases are drying. I really like this company and what they're making.

I have received mine a couple weeks ago. Very impressed with the quality of the plastic minis and all the production values are top notch.  8)
