Hello All,

First of All I want to thank Lori for jumping on and fixing the shipping address on mine the other day!!! Great Job Lori. Next, I want to reach out to L, IO, Whitewind, Harneloot, Ghengis, jkratzer, Thoth, someone new, someone old, anyone who will post some cool setups combined with past sets. Due to UPS rules and procedures I will not see my set until the 9th. :-( but I can live through your setups!!! Come on guys let me see.

It's the 4th already down under and I haven't got my set. Was promised by today :(

Unless the date refers to the US date ? Perhaps tomorrow in time for the weekend :D

Thanks DF for getting my sets to me so fast! My 3 year old and I had some good times unwrapping the new pieces. He was ready to get his superheroes so we could immediately add some figures to scenery. :)

My set has arrived with customs 1 1/2 days ago. The good news - it's in the country - the bad one - now they will charge it - and the unions have just started a postal strike. They assume no deliveries of letters for a full week.

For fellow enthusiasts from the UK here a tip which might (?) work.

If you got an e-mail from Lori - check your package at Parcelforce - NOT at USPS. The parcelforce website has a lot more information. USPS will tell you - out for delivery - while all that is out for delivery is a postcard telling you to hand over some money for the custom charges.

You don't have to wait for the postcard - once you see that the parcel is out of custom phone Parcelforce (there must be a number on the webpage) cite the tracking number - and you might save yourself a whole week. If you are close to the depot - just drive there - have your number ready - and some cash if you haven't paid yet - and you might be lucky (don't blame me if this doesn't work).

I know they have an automated system which doesn't deal with this situation - but there is an option for an operator. I've done it in the past to redirect it to a postal office even before I got the payment notice.

Will parcelforce deliver during the strike ?

Certainly not if you haven't paid and wait for notification via Royal Mail. Otherwise - I just don't know. News and website only deal with Royal Mail - Parcelforce is associated - but are they affected ?

Just me trying to save you maybe a week of waiting.

Like Thod, my package is sat within UK customs. Unlike Thod, I am not optimistic about Parcelforces flexibility to release a package without having followed procedure (i.e. before they have issued the "cough up your customs charges and parcelforce handling fee rip-off charge" letter).

Also, I am pretty sure that the Parcelforce guys will all be in the same union as the royal mail chaps, so I have little hope in a direct approach working.

Let us know how you get on tomorrow Thod. Personally, I am resigned to waiting for a week before getting the highway robbery letter and seeing my package some time the week after that. I've waited for 3 months already, another week and a half won't kill me.

Heheheh i already have one planed, it has been fermenting in my brain box for a very very long time, it was something i have wanted to do since before there even was a taven accesory set, and now i have the chance to do it... If it weren't for my D&D game tonight i'd expect pictures of it by saturday, as it is since i am DMing tonight the earlyest i could start on it would be Tommorrow night, But since i am supposed to meet up with Mrythe some time this weekend (sorry if i just butchered that no time to go look for right spelling) Saturday most likely, and maybe get a game in!!! i will likely be getting my figs in order and have no time to play with it till Saturday night... But something is coming oh yes, soon oh so soon.... :)
