It did, but with half the comments in french, it was easy to miss. 

Yeah fair point i forgot about that, as i had Chrome translate the comments page and everything was in English!

It probably shouldn't have a delayed tag yet since the official delivery date is November 2019 and they haven't officially said it's going to be late

 

(even though it's looking very likely to be a disaster, even more so than during the campaign)

Agreed - it's my bad on messing the date up between 2018 and 2019 and mentioning it here.

I vote for 'Train wreck' tag...   

 

Well, technically, the train hasn't wrecked yet.  But it definitely looks like the bridge is out ahead, and no one is working on fixing it. :poke:

I don't know.   The company name here is Sans Detour, or "without detour".   A train barreling down a track towards a broken bridge seems appropriate for the name. 

Or maybe it's more like this:

Anyway, links to the Chaosium statement about SD (two years of non-payment) and French RPG Aventures (en francais) :

Also, for the resin miniatures, Hysterical Games delivered the first wave of resins, then closed its door. While Footsore picked up some Hysterical Games' customers, Confrontation was not one of them. Footsore's reply on FB when I asked:  "Hello xxxxxx, what has happened with Hysterical Games is separate to us setting up our own resin casting. We havent picked up all their customers so as it currently stands Confrontation Miniatures are not one of our customers."

Man, this is falling apart way faster than I thought it would...

 

IMO not particularly, these guys were so desperate for money something was obviously up in the background and now with all this "breaking news" its easy to see why now as these guys are in serious debt, if you remember correctly they lost just over 200K of funding and continued as everything was fine, while the campaign funding and comment section were imploding, that is a KS record for lost funding on a successful campaign IIRC and i think its going to hold that crown for a while i would think, any serious business would have cancelled, reworked the campaign and shown there was no connection with Ludikbar or what ever that FLG shop was called!

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
