Update # 68 still waiting..........

Posted by tre manor (Creator)


  Hello again everyone,

   I am afraid I still do not have any good news. I am still waiting. I have not posted anything for a while as I had hoped to have better news by the next update but everyday the postman passes without a box in hand. I know many of you are very angry and please believe me that I understand your frustration. This KS has been nothing short of pure disaster for me and my business but rest assured that as soon as I have the product I need I will resume shipping again.

   Thank you for your patience.

   Cheers,

   Tre'

Update # 67 Checking in......

Posted by tre manor (Creator)


  Hello Again Everyone,

   Sorry for the silence. As of now we are awaiting the delivery of a restock of the undead and the Watchmen bits sprues. Once those arrive we will be able to ship out more packages. We are however still shipping what we are able to over the week this week. I wish I had more information to make this update a bit more positive but this is really all that has developed recently. We are working as quickly as we are able to resolve all outstanding orders but it is just taking a lot more time than we ever imagined it would. I hate to keep saying that and I am certain that you are also tired of reading it. Just please bear with us a little further.

   As always thank you for your patience with us through this.

   Cheers,

   Tre'

Update #66 Bad News again....

Posted by tre manor (Creator)


  Hello again everyone,

   Well I am sorry to report yet another delay. The weapon sprues for the hordesmen that were delivered recently are totally unusable. So I am going to have that sprue remolded for metal production through Valiant Enterprises one of my regular metal providers. This will take a while though unfortunately. I will see if I can pay them extra to put this on a rush to maybe get it done faster but for now I can only expect this item to be in hand in 3 weeks time at the earliest. 

    There IS an alternative however. The weapons sprues for the BoneBacks goblins will work with the Hordesmen and Riders. This sprue includes a spiked club, a cleaver, an axe, and a worn sword. Each Hordesmen pack will include two of these sprues. Rider 1 will include the sword and axe, rider 2 will include the club and cleaver, rider 3 will include the sword and axe, and rider 4 will include the club and cleaver. All you will need to do is to drill a shallow socket into the top of the hordesmen's hands to accomodate the peg at the bottom of the weapon. I can substitute these for the hordesmen weapons right now and ship MANY orders that are now sat waiting for the weapons.

  The weapons I am referring to are pictured below. The originally intended weapons sprues WILL be available at a later date though in metal and will be a regular store item.

   If you would like for me to make this substitution for you please respond " yes " below and I will happily do so. If not there is no need to answer.

   This will still not quite allow for ALL orders to go out as we are still awaiting the delivery of the full quantity needed on almost all other items. BUT a substitution will allow me to make a significant dent in the orders we have sitting waiting to go right now. I know this has been very frustrating for you all and I know that there is really no excuse for the delays. We are working as best we can to move things along so please bear with us a little longer.

  Thank you for your continued patience.

   Cheers,

  Tre'

Update # 65 Shipping what we are able and still waiting for more items.

Posted by tre manor (Creator)
Hey Everybody,

  Sorry that I have been so quiet lately. We are indeed shipping what we are able, but it is quite a logistical mess so it is taking longer than expected. I expect another shipment from ED very soon that will mean more orders go out and of those which are being partially shipped as we are able it means more items go into the packages shipped. Hopefully though this is the worst of the difficulty and once we get the remaining items needed to finish fulfillment we can move through the remaining fulfillment faster.

   What we are doing right now is going ahead with putting together ALL orders with what we have, listing the remainder on a sticky note on the box top listing the name and pledge level on the box side. This way we have most of the work done on many of the boxes and we are thus able to simply pull the items as needed once the remainder are in hand, finish the boxes, move them to labeling and then ship them out.

   Ed informs me that he has another large box ready to head my way so I am just awaiting delivery on more items to resume normal shipping.

   We thank yo ufor your patience with us in this and hope to resolve this matter ulitmately very very soon.

   Cheers,

   Tre'

Update # 64 Still waiting but we are shipping what we are able

Posted by tre manor (Creator)

Hey Guys,

  I am really sorry for the long silence. We are now waiting for delivery on the Hordesmen's weapons. This delay is on me as I was going to hire out the molding of a new weapons sprue to make production and packing more efficient but I could not get into the production schedule for such a small item very quickly. ED however has ponied up and made two new molds for these items which should get this problem sorted in short order. Ed still has a lot going on but he is working hard on this and will deliver as soon as he is able to. On the up shot we are still delivering as we are able, unfortunately though the Hordesmen do make up the bulk of the orders so this is a more significant delay. 

  Once we have the weapon sprues in hand regular shipping will resume and we should be well stocked enough on all other items that we can get VERY close to finishing this out. We are working as hard as we can y'all please try to be patient with us. I know we are really straining your patience now and we take that VERY seriously. I do not take your confidence or patience for granted and I assure you that Kristy and I will put ALL other work aside when these items come in to get as many packages finished ( as we actually have stacks of unfinished boxes stacked in our living room and foyer ) and shipped as possible in the shortest time possible.

   Cheers,

    Tre'
