I don't think I ever posted what I got from my first wave box, did I?

I don't think I did as well as MDG or the like, but I don't think I did badly for the price, either:

- Warhammer 40,000 Tool Box
- Imperial Eagle cereal bowl
- Metallic Space Marine mug (this doesn't seem to be available anywhere any more)
- 40k Egg Cup set
- 1 Stormcast Coaster
- Stormcast Shield pin badge
- "For the emperor" metal wall sign

13.99 + 10.99 + ??? + 9.99 + 2.00 + 4.99 + 3.99 = £46 + mug, so it's going to be at least £50 of content, as advertised.

I may have been daft enough to order a second one, which should've arrived today, but UPS apparently have issues with my address - which, from what I can see on their system is correct. I'm especially annoyed that their system only updated to indicate this issue after their customer service phone line closed for the day...

OK, UPS guy turned up just as I was about to do some training for work - and just as I was in the final 5 of a Super Mario Bros 35 game, though low on time - so I've taken the interesting route and opened the box to see what my loot was:

- Blood Angels Stoneware Bowl
- Keyring (Imperial Eagle)
- Blood Angels Pin Badge
- Keyring (Purity Seal)
- AOS Heat Changing Tankard/Mug
- A5 Notebook (Emperor)
- AOS Giant Pin Badge

11 + 8 + 4 + 8 + 14 + 12 + 15 = £72

I need to rethread the pin on the Giant AOS Badge of doom - which is pretty damn chunky - but everything else looks fine.

Because I’m a slag for their wares, I’ve gone and ordered a third.

I mean, their stuff is solid quality. Have also just donated a few odds and sods to my Bestie, to help flesh out his man cave.

Not quite as lucky this time, but still a decent haul.

Dark Angels Bowl - £10.99
Space Woof pin - £3.99
Coaster - £2
Egg Cups - £9.99
Sigmar Mug - £11.99
Purity Seal Keyring - £7.99
Notebook - £11.99
Aquila key ring - £7.99 (approx, doesn’t seem to be currently available)

So...£66.93 worth for £25.

I’ll say. The AoS pencil case I got, before I opened it I thought well I can store brushes in there etc.
but no, it’s fully stocked with pencils, rubber and sharpener.
It’s pretty cool. And I got the matching AoS notebook.

Would have gone with the 40k given the choice, that notebook looks cool. But to be fair this one is pretty good too.

And I’ll say, the only reason I wouldn’t get more of those if they kept doing them is that I have way too many bowls and cups in the house as is.

Try EXIT15, as I keep getting that one pop up.

If not, there’s a standing 10% discount for signing up to their mailing list.

Thanks, but I just figured out that those codes only work on the UK site, which won't ship to USA.

I've not found a working code for the USA site.

I ordered two and the first box arrived today, containing the total value of £34:97.

The box contained three items, the heat changing space marine latte mug, set of 2 egg cups and the wh40k notebook. I've mailed Halfmoonbay, but as it is friday Im not expecting an answer until next week.

nothing as simple as some keyrings etc having slipped under one of the flaps at the bottom of the box?

worth pulling it apart just in case if you've not already

I'd have a nother look through the packing material they're using, too - layers of that semi-shredded card gives all sorts of places for things to get stuck in.

This does seem to be the first one where it sounds like they haven't hit the value they stated, which seems weird, and makes me think there's been a cock-up somewhere.

I've gone through the packaging and tore the card apart, as well as the box, nothing. Im gonna wait for their reply as I suspect it being a simple mistake and nothing else.

I hope so. I know my third box wasn’t as instantly impressive as the first two, but it was still pretty decent (Dark Angels bowl was christened with Lucky Charms this morning).

Let us know their responses.

I'm saying this sincerely, before anyone accuses me of sarcasm - it's nice to see someone behaving rationally and in proportion to what's going on. Especially on the internet.

I got a reply from Halfmoonbay today and they are going to send me the rest of the box contents. That settles it positively for me.

I must be very unlucky, I got my second box today and it contained:

Warhammer 40,000 Keyring - Space Marine (£7.99)
Warhammer 40,000 Bowl - Space Wolves (£10.99)
Warhammer 40,000 Pin Badge - Ultramarines (£3.99)
Warhammer 40,000 Keyring - Purity Seal (£7.99)
1 Coaster (has a Stormcast Eternal on it) from, I assume, Warhammer Age of Sigmar Set of 4 Coasters

I've already mailed them about this, but it feels like someone's who is packing those boxes are putting stuff in their own bag when sending to Sweden. I doubt that is it, but I hope for a 2nd positive reply on them sorting it out.
