This doesn't bode well for my order - place on June 7th and...still "processing".

Well, it`s processing, we have our own logistics complications with safety measures and stuff.

I had a similar issue, my order I placed finally turned up this week after 2 months from when I placed the order, just need to be patient.

Flip side of that cheery story I ordered early March so nearly 4 months ago so it's most likely sitting in the bottom of that RP mail bin that they keep showing pics of.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Ordered some Not striking scorpions the other day, I reckon it will be well worth the wait. I think we we all need to be a little more patient with companies shipping internationally at this time.

I got some of those from an importer on eBay. Amazing miniatures. Best resin casts I've ever worked with. All the parts are numbered for each model. Even the "hair" bits on the back of the helmets are numbered and keyed for the helmet. Of course I managed to screw that up...put 5's braids on 3..

My only gripe with the set, is the exarch doesn't have the option to be holding a biting blade. It goes across his back.

Indeed -- I have a package (from a different vendor) that's been held up in Mother Russia since May, just sitting at the postal depot. We've been in constant contact though, and he's explained just how much things have slowed to a crawl. It's just not in Russia, though - everything is a mess! :S

That being said, I do hope Alpharius gets his stuff, sooner rather than later!

And, Artel - love your work - need to put another order in soon.

Be safe everyone - we are all in this together. Wear a mask, if not for yourself, than those around you. You could save a life.

Yeah, I got one of the early Farseers they did and their resin quality is excellent, as good as if not better than GW plastic. Have to say I’m really looking forward to doing this kit. I’m reading the Path of the Warrior at the moment, and he’s just finished his training with the Scorpions.

I enjoyed that book. I recently re-read it since getting the Eldar/40k bug again. The cover art is my favorite eldar artwork. That book is why I like the scorpions.

Yeah, it’s making me like them too, and aspect warriors in general. I have an ulthwé Force which is mostly guardians, so I’m adding some aspects now too.

Hey - I appreciate that - thanks!

And yes, I can be patient. I was just expecting to see it stuck in the 'shipping' phase by now, not in the 'processing' phase.

It will get here eventually though, and I know Artel W is a stand up company, so I'm really not worried at all.

Yup, no issues with the quality here in my orders. It's not their fault that Mother Russia Post is utilizing the gulag system to walk the packages to their destination.

Man, I went back 7 pages to see if you said when you ordered and found nothing... on the plus side I got to revisit some release pictures I haven't seen in a while. For grins I checked my tracking number again and I show stuff on May 20th and May 24th even thought it just showed stuff from May 4th back in June; weird. Ah well, it'll get here when it gets here.

I checked my email traffic. Ordered on 27 April. I followed up with Artel regarding order in early June; I was not aware Russian postal was in such a delay. I received notification the packaged had shipped on 12 June. Arrived 11 July.

It took awhile, but the resin quality of these sculpts makes me a bit frustrated when I think back about anything I ever orde fro Forge World.

Thanks for getting back with that info. The previous stuff I've ordered is top notch, so I know it's worth the wait; plus it's for a side project so in no rush for it.

Just want to note I'm not complaining, just curious, stating facts as I see them and know it's out of Artel W's hands.

Placed order March 23, got shipped notification April 17th, Russian tracking shows activity April 10th-14th, May 3rd/4th shows it's in St. Petersburg, USPS tracking shows activity May 4th. Russian tracking shows something May 20th, then May 24th I think it goes out the port of St. Petesburg. The May 20th and 24th activity didn't show up in June when I checked a handful of times.

So it's probably going to end up like a surprise gift to myself.

In the same boat, placed an order on 21st of March, still waiting on it to arrive at this stage. Tried chasing it up via the postal services, but at this point the track and trace number has expired, so it's going to be a surprise indeed when it will arrive.

edit.

Spotted on Facebook:







Also some nice WIP renders of upcoming Aeldari and Drukhari stuff, along with Guard specialists, including a medic.

I placed an order on June 7, and it moved on to 'Processing' on June 23.

It hasn't even begun its epic journey through the Russian Postal System yet!

I really do want to order a lot more from them, but I'm just waiting to get this first group in so I can evaluate everything and then go from there.

So, back to hurrying up and waiting for now!

Sorry, mate, I was ill most part of June, so processing was kinda slowed.

Sorry Artel, I mean I can see the difference between the Hammer and the Axe, but the two helmeted heads look identical to me.

Edit: Or is it same head...but one is larger than the other? I think I get it now.

Yes, you`re absolutely right, We`re making orc heads smaller, than most manufactirers (because we love `em brutal and scrappy, but less... apish?), but there was a lot of complains, so we decided to try two different sizes this time.

I believe that's where he *used* to sell from, but now he's got his own 'direct' shop/link/etc.

No reason to pay Etsy fees if you don't have to pay them!

We`re still using Etsy and Ebay as second platform, just in case, but I`d recommend to use artelw.com instead - there are WAY more miniatures and prices are better.

The customs backlog must be clearing up. The two minis that I ordered on March 17 arrived yesterday. They are in perfect condition and the packaging is superb. I didn’t photograph the plastic mailing envelope but you can see it folded up in the first photo.

For those keeping score at home, my order finally arrived; everything looks good and was definitely worth the wait.
