Anyone else still waiting for there Black Friday Sale orders to arrive? it's been 10 weeks and still nothing


You might want to reach out and let them know. I ordered a miniature during the sale and didn't hear anything for weeks.

I contacted Shieldwolf through Facebook and it turns out they did received my payment, but my order number never showed up in their system. They've since worked it out and are delivering it now.

Maybe the same thing happened to you?

@Gamingdog
Every single order was shipped within a week or so after the BFriday sales. Automated emails are sent out to inform so the same day we ship out that the order has been completed. We are hard working people and even stayed during the weekend to make sure our supporters receive the best treatment possible.
Due to the known combinational factors (Covid19, BF and Xmas period) delays were going to be inevitable, not from our doing however. :-)
I will even disclose to you that a couple of clients who used PayPal unnecessarily rushed to push a claim (PayPal allows a massive 180 days window!), they have either already dropped them or will do so any day now since their parcels will (inevitably) arrive. We have no choice but to plainly ignore these claims, because from previous experience we find that by the time we answer them the matter has been resolved ;-)

@Infinite_array
Yours was a very special case actually, we are still discussing it with our technician on how/why that happened (with no answer yet). 3 people got involved in this (Angelos, the technician and myself) to figure it out! Anyway, within this week this will have shipped and a tracking number will be supplied as agreed.
We give massive priority that at the end of the day, it's in the interest of all parties involved to have a good experience when dealing with us #honestbusiness

and an update today saying Imperium Immortalis is shipping now

NEWS

February is going to see the Imperium of Shieldwolf reinforced! We had taken a poll last year to see what new Science Fiction army YOU most voted for! So, it is with great pride that we present you what we had been working on ever since May 2020; the Imperium Desertum (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shieldwolf/imperium-desertum-imperium-immortalis)

Thank you. This is Sci-Fi only.
The poll for the fantasy kickstarter closed last month and we are working on it in order to launch (separately from this) later this year.

We'll have side by side comparison pictures of the new miniature range next to other brands so people can see how to use them in other games.
We actively hear what our backers ask for and are certain you're going to like what we have done with the Desertum. Also, after the positive turmoil our Sisters of Faith caused, and with the success of the first Imperium army Kickstarter of our range (the Immortalis) we have learned, fixed and will continue fixing issues we encounter. With every project we get better and better.
With previous experiences accumulating and 4 projects under our belt (all fully delivered and within very reasonable timeframes we had planned for them), we now feel to have the adequate experience to create and deliver an awesome kickstarter!

Pic for attention :-)

@Shieldwolf Miniatures: Are the add-ons/unlocked miniatures from the previous kickstarter going to be available as add-ons in the Desertum kickstarter?
The ogryn looks nice, it would be nice to see the entire army painted up

@GreenScorpion
We are painting up the entire army as we speak (like we do with all our miniatures from our brand), it's obviously going to cost but the other option is to leave the renders and that would be a cheap practise in our opinion i.e. not going into the trouble to paint the miniatures of our own range; if our supporters go into the trouble to paint them, then why shouldn't we? :-)
It also helps give a better visual to how the miniatures look up painted and inspire people to do the same. It's a plus in our hobby. At least that's how we see it :-D

As for the add-ons, we are making some available from the get go. As we unlock stretch goals, we are going to be making the unlocked miniatures available as add-ons too.
There's going to be different pledge levels however compared to the first project. We are now making two armies available so the choices should be ample! Few days left now...

Just wanted to follow up my Black Friday order arrived safe and sound. Also Shieldwolf mailed them right away. the delay is solely because of mail service from various countries

Much appreciated for the follow up. We hope you enjoy the miniatures! :-)

The Imperium Desertum may be coming, but that doesn't mean the Imperium Immortalis is going anywhere; on the contrary, it's getting reinforced!

Just got a chance to crack open my Imperium Immortalis pledge and they've gone an interesting route

the ogres, parts of the guns and the horses (minus a few legs) are in resin, excellent quality casts

the humans all look to be 3d printed with all the parts for each in a little heat sealed bag, they look ok detail wise but it's not easy to be certain as the grey prints are pretty translucent so i'm going to need to actually build and undercoat one to get a proper look at it

i'll try and get some photos up tomorrow when I've got some natural light, they're not photographing at all well under a bulb or flash

Right here are some photos and thoughts







First off the detail is good on the prints, I've managed to do a bit of tidying up of the 3d printed medic and the resin cavalry support horse and they do look good, i'm more than happy with how both look. (sady there was an invisible bubble in the rear leg of the horse so that snapped, but drill and pin will fix this, it's something you have to live with and wouldn't have shown up on a QC inspection as there was just enough wall around the bubble to make it invisible)

Second the horses and ogres are a good size and will be fine to drop into 40K if your intending to use this as a guard army

but i'm not so sure about the human figures, they're true scale so are significantly more slightly built than a GW figure (look at the mauser pistol in the medics hand the barrel is so fine it just doesn't stand up will compared with anything from GW), and because of their build the also feel short although that's an optical illusion as you can see when you compare it to a genestealer cultist mini (sorry I have a bunch of cadians but I have no idea where I've put them when I tidied up things most recently)

I've also shown the medic against a Deathguard, a Primeris and a Malifaux mini which is the closest I've got to having similar proportions

I don't know how feasible it is but i'd suggest bulking these up & the desert folk too as if i'm hesitant (and i'm generally not bothererd by size/proportion issues) then there are going to be a fair number of potential backers who will have real problems with the size
