Send it my way, I'll have that army painted by next week.

I didn't even back this game, but pics like that always make me happy...

Rule book is out, and news they are punting miniatures and gameplay features (invaders) to the wave 2 stuff.

 

I remain unimpressed

Yeah, I'm just not feeling good about this one.  But I'm only in for a base pledge, so I can live with that.

IT BEGINS: ASSEMBLY AND SHIPPING

*SNIPS text and pictures*

 

OUR PROMISE TO OUR BACKERS  

Now that you’ve gotten a better picture of what’s been going on behind the scenes, let’s get to the big news. The first Kickstarter Backer copies have left the factory and have started their shipping journey!

 

To honor our pledge promise of a four-week advanced shipment to our Retail Kickstarter Backers, the April 21 street date is the intended go-live date for those who backed the Retailer Pledge.

 

We could not be more excited to have reached this milestone!

 

WHEN WILL I GET MY COPY  

With a campaign of this massive scale—over 50,000 copies to deliver for just this first wave—we expect the full roll-out and delivery process to take up to 6 weeks for the core game fulfillment.

 

We are doing our absolute best to fulfill our promises and get the game into your hands and onto your table!

 

We’ll be back with another update next week to keep you up to date on how the assembly lines & shipping progresses.  

 

Speaking of boxes, here’s what the final product looks like. That’s 3.5 kilos of board game!

Boxes laid out on pallets as they are assembled. That’s a lot of space...

SHINYYYYY!

Glad to see fulfillment is starting (for wave 1), but I'm just not enthusiastic about the game anymore.  I did see some of the models at Adepticon last weekend, and I simply said "meh".  I don't know why I'm feeling so ambivalent, but I am.

My wave 1 shipment arrived, which is just the core set. Now to wait until October for the stretch goals and expansions. ^.^

Can you say something about the miniatures? I didn't care much for the game, only was tempted by the miniatures. In the end, I did not get the game. In the pictures I've seen of the retail miniatures, they don't seem to be that good ... but it might be the pictures.

 

Edit: the bosses look great, but the rank and file enemies (hollows) ... don't know, the archers look bad in the pictures.

If no one has upped any by this evening. I'll post a few shots of the miniatures when I open the game and inventory the pieces.

The sculpts are pretty good. The production quality is slightly less good but not towards the lower end. I'd say they're pretty good for board game pieces. Above average for tabletop pieces (if you take some of the lower quality stuff into account). I won't take some pictures now because it's late in the evening and my camera insists on using the flash in electric light. I can disable it by using a few modes that don't allow close ups or I can wait 'till tomorrow (by which time the other guy's probably going to have pictures up for you anyway).

 

Be careful with the Knight hero. Mine had a misscast quillon on the body side. I've been in touch with steamforge and they're hoping to get a replacement sent out to me soon.
