I'm new to these mini figures from warlord so my question is this,  do the mini figures come already painted or or you paint them yourself?

 I still cant get into Indigo Prime at all. and I have read some of the back stories , but its not for me.
The rest of the prog on the other hand is okay.   Maybe I'm getting too old now and expecting too much from the weekly prog.

Prog / Re: Prog 2043 - Signs of the Times
« on: 25 August, 2017, 10:39:41 pm »
Right guys.....is there anyone else in the cal-hab district ( Ayrshire division ) having mega problems with the deliveries of the weekly prog and the monthly meg?

I am sick to the back teeth of the local posties delivering my subscription progs 4, 5 or even 6 days late every week now !!!

Its now Friday and I am still awaiting prog 2043.  tomorrow I should have the magazine and prog 2044 but I doubt it.  As I work all day I am very rarely home when the postie arrives , which can be from 12 noon to 4 pm, so I am told.

So does anyone else have issues with the Royal Mail ???   I would be interested to know  Cheers  rant over.

I share your pain.

I am also in Ayrshire - mentioned before on other Prog threads.  I'd say I get 1 out of every 4 Progs on the Saturday, if I'm lucky, and it's slowly but surely worsening.

I got in touch with the ever helpful new(ish) sub-bot Oliver on Wednesday (nothing riles more than not having a sub Prog even by the newsstand release day!) and he sent me my Prog 2043 on Thursday, 1st class so it arrived yesterday - still no sign of the original item though?!

He says the Progs are sent out Thursday/Friday before release but they do not have any control beyond that point.  My point is that the Prog used to arrive 99% of the time on the Saturday and more importantly it was something TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

I got in touch with Royal Mail earlier in the year and they said it is for the sender to bring up any delivery issues, but then the Prog is sent 2nd class, so it is only their "aim" to deliver in 2 to 3 working days (do they even count Saturday as a "working" day?  It would certainly be interesting to see the delivery targets and actual records of the Kilmarnock office, never mind our local one!).

I mean, just what are they doing with them?  My regular postie is on holiday this week so I just put this one down to the random postie shoving it through the wrong door, but yours too?  Hmmm.

My sub runs out with the new Meg and Prog 2048 and I'm afraid that's it for subbing for me after a great many years.  I'd rather just get it from WH Smiths on the Wednesday (where I'm sure it will be 99% of the time) so that I can once again have something TO LOOK FORWARD TO!

...instead of perpetual disappointment...  I know it may seem silly, or pedantic, but this last year subbing with the crappy postal service has sullied my enjoyment of the Prog slightly.

UPDATE on late deliveries,  finally tracked down my regular postie ( very reliable this one ) he says any Ayrshire post come via the KILMARNOCK depot, which receives it from the Glasgow depot, So the Ayrshire delays seem to be coming from Kilmarnock. I am awaiting a response from their chief postie for a reply. will update when I hear of anything.

I'm curious to find out how many edition of 2000AD on free comic book day are there.   I've looked at the 2000ad database on Barney but nothing there. A full list with pics of the covers would be great. I think I may be missing only one ( 2011 ) but I'm not sure.
