Any Alberta buyers who would be interested in sharing S&H?

Hahaha, in my part of the world, don't count a boat out of the equation! ;)
Yeah we're about a 7 hour drive from the border. (I'm not going to entertain the "Fail Ferry")

Galahad, we were considering this last time as well, but didn't get around to it. I'd like to hear about the company you went with. :) (there's many options!)

Thanks folks! KS4, here we come!

Yeah. The Can-US exchange is rough now. I remember our dollar was at par for KS1!

I like having one KS per year (I'd even be OK with 2) - my wish is simply for a smaller scope on them. Something simple with only 5-10 add-ons. Maybe DF will take it easy on us with KS5 so we can catch up.

While I agree, I have a feeling we are in the minority here. Many folks are quite ready to pledge another grand or two for the castles. :D

I feel the same way every time I want to buy minis from England.

Ninjameesta, I am in Fredericton & have had the last 3 Kickstarters sent to one of the package receiving places on the Maine/New Brunswick border.

I plan on doing the same thing this time.

Now that sounds like a good plan on many different levels.
