It may take an hour or two for their in-box to cool down enough to let them send out confirmations

Problem is demand is much greater than supply and judging by the comments on their facebook page Tony and Elaine probably had more than 50 emails for packs in the first couple of minutes after 12.00 EST .

Just have to hope I am one of the lucky 50 . I also regret posting on Facebook now as whenever anyone replies on the thread I get an email notification and I think it's confirmation my order was successful .

Waited until 12 and then 5 more seconds so wouldn't go through at 11:59 on either theirs or mine, hopefully still made it. If not maybe I'll finally be graced with a sketch in GoT.

My email went out at 5.00pm BST and I just got my confirmation as #40 out of 50. So anyone who hesitated for a minute or two may well have missed out, at least where the Sketch Packs are concerned.

Likewise I sent mine in on the dot of 17.00 and got number 49/50 .

I reckon Tony and Elaine had all the emails come at once and it was just luck as to the order they appeared in their inbox.

Whoops, shouldn't have waited that 5 seconds then. Never got an e-mail so missed it. Good luck to all.

The Pernas have posted that their Spellcasters 2 set is a complete sell out, which comes as no surprise to me whatsoever. As one of the fortunate ones who made the 'winning list', I now just have to wait for my invoice before entering Patient Waiting Mode (TM). At least with a Perna set, the wait always proves worthwhile

I was not one of the lucky 50, but at least I was able to get 4 sets. Good luck to everyone who was able to order some!

Well.... No surprise here. Congrats to everybody that was able to confirm packs or sets, and good luck to those of you on the waiting list. I will be really disappointed if Hanie's cards don't arrive on time, as she is always one of my favorites.

We have a couple of dozen people on a waiting list and they may not get any sets at all. This is the best we could do with so many missing sketch cards and so many orders. We received over 120 orders in total.

Well I'll be looking for archer elf sketches, so just keep that in mind when opening your cards!

Yeah, Hanie's always a staple of these sets so it'll definitely be unfortunate if they're not in it. The first Spellcasters was my first Perna set, and the first sketch I pulled was one of Hanie's, so it doesn't feel like complete set without her =) Even if they don't make it, I at least hope they eventually show up so they're not lost forever. That would be terrible.

...order sent right at NOON...#47 of 50...dang...lucky...just made it!!!
This is still one of my favorite sketch cards...
"TAROT WOMAN" Hanie Mohd from the FIRST 'Spellcasters' a couple years ago!
(picture doesn't do it justice...TONS of "glitter" on it...pretty magical in the sunlight!)
In my eyes, NOTHING beats Perna sets!!

Yeah I'm really hoping Hanie's cards make it on time. She is an artist I always hope to pull. Would be a bummer to know up front that I had no shot at it.

The Pernas just posted on Facebook that Hanie's sketches have arrived safe and sound

Cue Happy Bunny Mode

Hanie Mohd's and Peejay Catacutan's sketch cards have arrived! We are now only waiting for Jason Saldajeno's, Fer Galicia's and Matthew Fletcher's sketch cards to arrive. Hopefully they will arrive by June 6th to be inserted in the packs & sets. If they do not arrive by June 6th they will be offered for sale at a later date in complete set format and we might need to raffle off spots for those. That is worse case scenario.

Glad to hear I'll have a shot at a Hanie, and I bet some people on the waiting list were able to get sets too

Yup, lots of good news all around! There's so many artist I'm hoping for this time around, but since I haven't pulled one yet I'm probably hoping for a Wojik the most. Next set I'm just going to get one of her APs early.

We will begin offering people on the waiting list sets tomorrow. We just want to give one more day for mail to arrive before we do.

I just uploaded some images of the Spellcasters II sets being made at our Facebook Group.
