Hey all,

I imagine the Kickstarter is throwing wrenches all across the board, but has anyone seen movement on their order from Black Friday? I've ordered from the store before with about 1-day turn around. I figured a week or 2 but no dice so far. Not complaining given the happenings. But thought I would ask about others' experiences.

The FB group has seen them trickle in. I got notification last night. I wouldn't worry yet. If you don't hear anything after next week I'd submit a ticket.

Mine is being delivered today. It was their biggest sale to date with over 4,000 orders. Sounds like it's just taking them forever to work through them all

Ya a number of people on reddit have asked this and some people have received their orders. Poots made a semi official statement that they're backlogged, and they sold more stuff on black friday than the entire history of the web store. I won't be contacting them until around christmas, honestly. I just don't think they'll be caught up for a while and I have plenty to paint

Was a random FB suggestion actually - lanterns by daylight iirc is the grp, the mods are pretty quick to approve of members. I've actually found it rather useful. Especially for stuff like painting tips and seeing other peoples works. It's also not cancerous like the KS comment section is.

My order for Lion God is still unfulfilled, but that isn't surprising as they tend to take forever to ship stuff. I think they make some great products, but their shipping process definitely needs to be reworked because not shipping 'in stock' items until 2-4 weeks after they were purchased is a bit crazy.

I know they're a small company, but if you are having a big sale, you need to bring in a little part time help if you know you are going to be overwhelmed.

I received my order in California on 12/6. I got shipping confirmation the next day on 12/7. I think they have their hands full.

Well they are like 4 people, one of which was an intern. Maybe with the new capital they can get some new people on full time.

Still no notification for my Gorm but the T-shirt should deliver tomorrow, so at least I'll have something to wear when he arrives.

Do they actually handle the warehouse shipments, though? I thought those ship out of a different location entirely.

My (small) order arrived 12/5, but I'm in NJ - pretty close to where it was shipped from. Tracking information was sent last night. So yeah, I'd believe they were slammed with order.

Sorry for the tangent, but I've seen lots of comments about Black Friday shop sales in various threads. Is that an annual event where the shop cuts prices on the expansions and pinups? What are the discounts usually like?

Trying to decide what to add during the KS and what I can wait on is going to be really tough. Can't afford it all. shake

It's an annual thing. The discounts tend to be very good, but what they'll actually stock during the sale can be hard to guess.

Much like Phantom, my small order from Brooklyn has already arrived. I'm in central Jersey too.
My bigger order from Canada is still waiting.
I'm buried under a mountain of plastic, so I couldn't give a damn.....

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it's the first they gave 50% off on expansions. Typically it's miniatures.

I got my Black Friday Ninja on Tuesday and then got the tracking number for it on Wednesday As well as the tracking number for my other order (placed on the same day) with the majority of the other stuff I bought and that shows on truck for delivery today.

It is a bit annoying having to wait around with no word on our order, but it is good they had such a major cash in flow; I bet that is helping the company out big time in getting KS (Core reprint) stuff to the printers for manufacturing and will hopefully help them meet their Wave 1 deadlines.

Edit: I'm in Louisville KY

I ordered the Lion God expansion but haven't even received a shipping order number yet. I live in southern Michigan. Based on other people's replies here though, I should just start keeping a lookout since it may arrive. Score I ever get my tracking label email.
