It's shipping from Germany via UPS.

 

[Update]

 

The figures are very impressive.

Just got my preorder from my FLGS. Wow. So worth the wait. Now I just need to start saving up for all the expansions!

You'll enjoy it. I'm playing my fourth game on Wednesday afternoon. I might try Crawling Chaos this time around as I've got a good handle on Hastur/KiY.

I can't wait for the expansions. I believe they are still arriving all at once. Has anyone heard of a speculated ship date for the expansions? I've heard rumors that speculate the expansions will be released sometime in May/June.

Kickstarter backers of Cthulhu Wars have received a report regarding the expansions (being collated, even as you read this, prior to shipping) which includes a link to a YouTube unboxing video of Sandy Petersen with some copies of the expansions (picked up by his son after a quality control visit to the factory in China).  Since I was also able to find the video both on the Petersen Games channel and through a search for "Cthulhu Wars", I think it OK to call this to public attention.

 

One of the enjoyable things about the video is the obvious delight in Sandy's voice as he displays the figures.

I hope to see them in the flesh as it were at The Kraken next week and I think Sandy will have them at Essen the following week.

Unless Sandy himself wants to chime in, anything we could offer would be mere speculation.  One of the updates said, "If you have any issues or questions, please email support@petersengames.com", so I suggest you send this question there.

Best to ask these questions on the BGG forum.

 

Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 2: has a pre-KS promotion! Fine print (not listed anywhere but BGG forums) is that you'll need a $150 minimum pledge.

What is the BGG page?

 

Is the $150 pledge on the new Kickstarter?  I am a tad confused as to what the new pledge will need to be to get the extra items not in the complete set from the first Kickstarter.

BGG = Board Game Geek website. Arguably the most info on CW anywhere on the webz

 

As I understand it, $150.00 should get 'all the new stuff' from "Onslaught 2' which is slated to hit Kickstarted Oct 19 I think.
