This is one I’ll probably buy when it hits general release.
GW was a big part of my youth until they went all Warhammery.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Well, you've gotten off lucky then!  Failed projects I've backed include (from oldest to newest):

- 2012: Dwimmermount: An Old School Fantasy RPG Megadungeon (I bailed in the narrow window when refunds were being issued, so I got lucky on it)
- 2013: Fractured Dimensions - Infernal Minions of the Outer Planes (I did receive most of the miniatures for this one, but not quite all)
- 2014: MIDNIGHT HARVEST: Sensual Nightmares by Richard Pace (total failure)
- 2015: Horrors of War: A Covenant With Death by Scott Glancy (Pagan Publishing's only failed KS)
- 2016: Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game - Pagan's still producing on this one, which went viral with zillions of additional adventures, sourcebooks, etc.; with some irregularity I receive a package of new materials, so while this is long-delayed and still far-from-done it's not really a failure, although it is the oldest KS that I've supported that's still fulfilling

I supported several more that are still "in process" and some of them are certainly late, but they're communicating well about shipping and supply-chain disruptions, etc. so I didn't bother to list those.

I also support two Patreons:  1/ for the Oerth Journal, which only charges upon printing of the current issue, and 2/ a new one I did to support a Ukrainian sculptor who did a cool Elric miniature.  I should, in theory, receive that around year-end.

Allan.

Someone I know has already gotten their copy & the tracking from the publisher shows that mine is in transit.

Lucky of you to have been given a tracking number!

I received my PDF access yesterday, but still no tracking for my physical book.
I emailed them asking them what's going on with North American fulfillment, hopefully they answer back.

In the same boat.

Got the pdf but no despatch notice.
Anyone in the UK have theirs, or any updates?

Did you get an email with tracking information prior to receiving the book itself?

Yes. Here's what I got from them:

Oct 28th: email from Unbound Delivery "Confirm your address for Dice Men: Games Workshop 1975 to 1985, your copy is almost ready to go".
"Before we can post out your copy, please check that the delivery details below are still correct and click Confirm details if nothing has changed."
(For reference, my pledge was originally made on 10/15/20)

Oct 31st: email from Fedex Cross Border MailRobot.  This had a tracking number, and I was able to track my package from the UK to the US.

Nov 7th: delivered to me in the US

Nov 4th: email from UnBound that the pdf is available for download.

Hmmm.  

I confirmed my shipping address on 28 October too, but haven't received any shipping confirmation or tracking info.  

Posted a Q on the Unbound Q&A :D

My order is with their delivery partner awaiting despatch but no more specific than that.
Have those that have got theirs received the O&W as well?
Colour me unhappy, I could have just gone to Forbidden Planet and bought the bloody thing, I even saw somewhere that Ian Livingstone is doing a signing.

In the US, it won't be available on Amazon until next February, so even with the high shipping cost from the UK to US, it was worth it to me to get it now.

Plus Unbound gave us a digital copy, which I don't think is included if purchased via Amazon, and the cost of which if purchased separately is about what I paid in shipping. Plus I got my name in the book. : )

I finally received a tracking number about 4 days after emailing Unbound support.

They contacted me and told me it was about to ship.
Then I got a tracking email a day later.

Ditto, although I asked Wednesday and got a tracking number the same day.

My copy of this arrived today.  I got Dice Men, the Firetop mountain book and the Owl and Weasel reprint.  Looks great, well packed with no damage in shipping.  Looking forward to diving in to read it!

It arrived, a little dingy though. Probably the last kickstarter I back unless it is something very special.
