Shipping the remaining 90 backers
So August was definitely not the month I hoped it would be. I was very ill for 2 weeks and then my son had the worst relapse in 4 months.
Just as I started getting back to getting things together, my caster has had issues an been unable to get me any restocks for over 3 weeks.
And found out that my wife is going in for surgery end of next week.
Okay so where does this put me .... behind where I wanted ... but I am not Lucy with this KickStarter being a Charlie Brown like football.
So to show that I'm serious about regretting what has happened ... here is the promise I'll make as of today.
If I have not shipped you at least part of your order by September 30th, I will include in your order a note for a coupon code to be able to get 25% of the value of your order from our store (anything but Willy minis) in the future as a type of refund for the slow delivery. All the money for this KickStarter was used up by greatly increased shipping costs back in April so there this project had no profit and all shipping and extra casting costs for more castings since April have come from my pocket or I would offer a cash refund. If because of the problems I've endured, you choose to never use the coupon code, I appreciate that. But I don't want a KickStarter that goes over a year past due without offering something to the backers.
For each month after that I'll add on another 25%. If the worst happens and by the end of the year you are not shipped, I'll give you 100% of the value of your reward in future free items.
I cannot think of anything else to do at this point as I am doing all I can think of to hurry up and try and get this done when I am home and can do it.
I realize there have been several KickStarters for minis that have gone completely south and never delivered. IO Worlds, Torn Armor, Defiance Games, Center Stage Miniatures and Ice Age Mammals are all ones I've followed for various reasons ... this will not be those. You will get the minis.
Okay timetable ... I wish I had one. It is still my goal to ship out as much as possible before this KS is one year late for delivery. I do not want to get there but I wanted to let everyone know I wanted to present up front a penalty for myself if I do not reach it.
Some of you might receive pewter teams if possible to try and get your orders shipped. That will cost an incredible amount more in postage and materials but at this point ... I really just want to get the packages to the remaining backers and if I'm waiting too long to get restocks of resin ... I'll do that.
Not a good news update .... but I'm not trying to hide anything from anyone.
I will continue to post backer names to the comments as they go out the door.
