Probably sidewalks & alleyways/streets. However, awaiting to see what KS4 brings.

I am planning to order the Imperial Streets set. I was hoping to get the Wargamer's Street set too but they don't offer it. Now I am leaning towards x2 Imperial Streets sets. However I need to see what I have first before I make any orders. Plus, I am taking Stefan's advice and holding off any orders until after KS4.

I definitely feel for the folks getting hit with overseas shipping, I've felt the sting ordering from EU Kickstarters too but nothing on the pain scale of shipping a Dwarven Forge pledge.

I remember hearing that for KS1, they took a huge hit on international shipping costs to the point where it threatened to contribute towards tipping the whole project into the red. So for the later ones, international shipping costs were raised and set at a flat rate for all destinations - during KS2 I don't think Kickstarter had a mechanism for different international shipping costs to different destinations.

I know that Backerkit has ways to handle it though, and I think even Kickstarter has some limited ways to allow it now. Maybe for Kickstarter 4 they could arrange for international costs to be determined by destination and paid in Backerkit after the close?

I made a large purchase just yesterday, and found out something that bodes ill for my KSIV purchases. An order that would have cost 330.00 in shipping if ordered during KSIII or the August presale only cost me 200.00 in shipping.

Granted, the items cost would have been 35 dollars over KSIII in the presale and were 113.00 at retail, but still, 130 is a lot of shipping to be saving.

So buying what I bought (about 800 bucks worth of product) at the presale would have cost me 35 dollars over KSIII prices.

But buying retail saved me 17.00

Not a lot, but still, I did save money. It tempts me to put my money in KSIV at retail, unfortunately. The nicer offerings like the Street starter and the So\tone Starter were also very nice, but I could not have planned on that.

I say those were better as the Street starter is far superior to the Street set offered in the KS and the stone buildings were nice as I did not like the split between tudor and stone in the KS.

The paint guides page says "Promotion on paints through March 15!"

(it is the fine printed line in between the "Read this First" and the all the paint guides).

I grabbed some more sewers yesterday when they went online. While I'd like to get more Tudor pieces, I think I'm going to hang on that until we see the KS4 offering.

Also waiting for the open water tiles.
