Yes, I’ve been good this year—MMP website reads, it is shipping HL preorders!

I would cry, but I’m lost and dying of thirst, caked dry with sand, blinded by sun glare, and tangled in a cactus patch.

Come on, add yours.

“Shipped” being a somewhat relative term. My USPS status is “Shipping Label Created, USPS Awaiting Item”…let’s see how long that takes. 😳

That happens when the label is printed and the package is boxed and ready for USPS pickup. I'd guess it is sitting by the door waiting on pickup which would be Monday since the office was closed yesterday and today. :)

Closed? I guess Perry wasn’t dressed up like the Grinch? 🤣

Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

My copy of Hollow Legions arrived today.

There is a sheet of counters in the same shade of green as allied minors. Are these counters more of the general allied minors, or are they only Ethiopian and Eritrean counters? If they are the latter, I will store them separately from my other allied minor counters.

I believe they are supposed to be Ethiopian/Eritrean, but I haven't received my copy yet.

They are distinct: if you look closely at the silhouettes on the counters, you can see the different uniforms. Not only that, but the strength factors are different.

The Allied Minor Color Counters are the Ethiopians, the Eritrean are in Italian Gray, with markings.

My pre-order is still "Hold for Prorder"

Under Payment Method it calls out: "New Credit Card for Preorders" ?

Is there anything I need to be doing? I have not received anything from MMP that they need anything more from me?

Whew, dodged a bullet. I was worried we'd be treated to two-tone Italian gray exterior/minor interior counters for the Eritrean units. ;)

Ironically, I was wondering how two-tone counters would look for the Eritreans. My order might arrive by Friday.

Did your CC reach it's expiration date since making the original pre-order? Check your spam folder to see if MMP sent you an email. When they shipped the 2nd map bundle my CC had expired and the MMP email was in my spam folder. I updated the CC and they sent the map bundle once the charge cleared.

All things I have done.

This ain't my first rodeo.

Just got an email from MMP and they ain't even CLOSE to having all the HL orders out the door....

Based on how Rising Sun pre-orders were shipped, I estimated that MMP could assemble and ship about 42 games on an average day (no holidays or weekends).
MMP has 1613 pre-orders for Hollow Legions.
1613/(42 games/day) = 38 days to ship all of the Hollow Legions pre-orders.
Rising Sun weighs 5.1 Lbs
Hollow Legions weighs 4.1 Lbs
Because Hollow Legions has fewer components than Rising Sun it may assemble and ship faster than Rising Sun.
Thus, I expect Hollow Legions pre-orders to finish shipping in mid to late January.
