Highways and Warehouses : A FedEx Story

 I picked up Stargrave a few weeks back and of course immediately set about assembling a crew. You know how it is, it doesn't matter how many sci-fi minis I already own, I must have a group specifically dedicated to Stargrave. Some of the minis were featured here in a past post. I ordered the balance of the crew from GameKastle who tend to have a very broad selection of inventory. That order shipped from California on June 8th. That's 8 June to all y'all Europeans out there. This shipment finally arrived yesterday after two uppity phone calls to FedEx customer service. Here's the travel itinerary for my small box of SIX singles. The journey starts at the bottom.

My favorite bit is that on June 25th, the package made it to Savannah and was then re-routed to Orlando! My uppity phone call on Friday resulted in FedEx agreeing to overnight the package to me for Saturday delivery which did occur. Here's the comically long website tracking.


 It goes without saying that I'm delighted to have finally taken possession of the delivery and all were assembled in short order last evening while watching Machete

They'll be painted up soon enough. I've got some Malifaux guys in the queue right now.  Happy Independence Day, co-Americans!

  1. If I have a choice, it is not to use FedEx. UPS and USPS are both more reliable.
