Shipping and Production Update

Hey folks,

Well we're pleased to announce that we will start to ship orders as of next week. However, this will start off with the smaller orders, or those will more printed material than models, moving onto the larger orders as stocks grow.

The metal figures have been the bane of Hysterical casting, they have proved more difficult than initially expected with a higher than normal fail rate. More moulds have been made to help account for the deficit in cast numbers, but with over 1000 sprues of many types needed it will take some time still to finally complete all orders. The extra mould costs, as well as the previous failed prints- many of the models have proved very challenging, particularly those developed as part of the stretch goals as they were created as the Kickstarter was running with some needing revision later- have put an unexpected strain on the finances of the team but it is in hand. I must note however that this has not been a failing of Hysterical, in part it's been circumstance and partly the challenging nature of the project. However, all the hard work, sweat, tears, blood and the unswerving support from our backers has allowed us to pull through and put us in a position to start to deliver this Kickstarter now. I want to thank you all for the support and patience you have show us over this past year, and I hope that your faith is justified when those boxes show up on your doorsteps!

Here are a few pics- checkout the Saurians!

      Sadly yes...but no "Wait a minute!" He suddenly lunged across the chamber at something behind Arthur's line of vision. "What's this switch?" he cried.
      "What? Where?" cried Arthur, twisting round.
      "No, I was only fooling," said Ford, you're going to have to pay for shipping ;-)

      Thanks for the update! We can't wait to get this stuff on the battlefield.
      Sad to hear that the troops gave you hell. Amazing work throughout the project. Your hard work and perseverance is paying off. Cheers to the entire AoT and Hysterical team.

      Are you going to verify addresses before you start shipping?

      More seriously, I'm really happy for all your team, and think that this adventure is really a tought one. It's hard to imagine how difficult a project can be, and you're almost to the finish.
