Awakening

8 likes

Hi guys! As you know every now and again we like to update you on a Kickstarter we think you might find interesting. Well, our friends over at Awaken Realms are running a campaign for scenery right now – and they are in their final 20 hours!

From their Kickstarter page:

AWAKENING is a project for everyone that loves beautiful models and fantasy worlds. With your support we want to create the best terrain pieces available on the market. We aim for amazing design, breath-taking details, and affordable price - all cast in the best quality resin you can find on the market.

There is an incredible range of fantasy and sci-fi scenery on this Kickstarter, such as a Demonic Wasteland for your Forces of the Abyss army to march through, Cthulu, Sci-fi, and Steampunk themes, plus all manner of battle banners, floating crystals, portals and even ancient fountains.

No matter your budget there’s a pledge level to suit every need – the most popular being the £40 level, that gets you a bucket load of top quality resin scenery.

If you’re interested you can find out more details on the Awaken Realms Kickstarter page here - there are less than 20 hours left to back if you're interested in picking up some great scenery for your battlefield.

Important Customer Service Update

14 likes

As Ronnie mentioned in his blog post, I am pleased to announce we are setting up a new message system to raise our level of customer support, ensuring you get the level of service you expect, and deserve.

The new system will allow us to better manage your questions and you’ll be able to check how we are progressing with your query. To enable this, every query opened will get a ticket number to help you check on it, and our customer service staff can provide updates for your ticket – so no need to keep sending emails anymore to chase us up. We will use the new system to replace the current email contact form and missing items forms, consolidating them in one place.

We need a short period of time to change over to the new system, and will be turning off the old contact form and missing items forms today (Wed 27th Jan). The new system will go live on Monday 1st February, and there will be an update to let you know when this happens. If you have any new missing items or queries you need to report, please wait until the 1st February to report this on the new system.

Some important points!

  • If you have already submitted a missing items form – we have it! Please do not submit another one using the new system. We are constantly working through the missing items forms and will continue to do so until they are all complete.

  • If you have emails waiting to be answered – we will do so! We will continue to work through the queue and make sure we get back to you all.

The new system will also have a support FAQ area which we will update continuously, building up a great resource. Your query might be answered without having to open a ticket in the first place :)

So great new for us and, more importantly, you, our customers. This is all part of our ongoing work to continuously improve the service we provide, and I want to thank you all for being patient with the team and myself as we make these big changes.

Many thanks,

Zak – Customer Experience Manager

Wave 2 has shipped!

17 likes

Hi Guys,

We're happy to announce that last month we successfully completed shipping of the 2nd Wave of Kings of War 2. This means that every wave 2 parcel we promised to send has now left us, either being in transit or having arrived already. We've been seeing some fantastic images of painted models for these already, so some of your are clearly too fast for painting.

Many of you will notice that we have a big announcement going live today and that things will be getting very busy around it.

At this point, we are working through any issues as I speak. The customer service team is currently 100% dedicated to sorting out any issues that you have and this will not change in light of the announcement. There are five people working tirelessly to answer queries and dispatch missing items and although we know that some of you are still waiting on replies or items, we will get to everyone and have everything sorted out.

If you have any missing items when you have received your pledge, then please fill out this form.

If you are waiting on a wave 2 parcel, then please do not contact us until the 25th of January - this will give your parcel ample time to arrive in the post.


Thank you for your patience, please keep posting the photos of your beautifully painted models.

Kings of War Wave II Dispatch Has Now Started!

28 likes

Merry Christmas everyone - Wave II Kings of War is now being picked, packed and shipped!

If you did not order any Wave II items you will not get a Wave II package.

To celebrate we’ve released the link to the free PDF version of Kings of War: Destiny of Kings to all Living Legend backers and up.

This link will be in your Kickstarter Messages Inbox. Please allow up to 24 hours for the email with the link in to arrive.

The link will take you to the Mantic Digital store where you can download the free Destiny of Kings PDF to your library. You can also upgrade the Destiny of Kings PDF to an enhanced eBook edition for just $7.99. You get it two months earlier than the general public and for less than half the price!

Now you’ve got the book, and soon the models, you can get building for our summer campaign due to start Q2 2016 :D

Wave II shipping information

We have just over 1000 packages to send out, and we’ll keep you updated on how we get on.

We expect to have all of the packages out of the building by the 31st December, and expect them to have all arrived before the 25th January 2016.

Please wait until Monday 25th January 2016 for your package to arrive before emailing in asking where your order is, or submitting a missing items form.

Please note that whilst our customer service team is active over the Christmas period, response times will be longer than normal.

The Wave II shipment

For the full list of what's included in Wave II, click here. If you did not order any of these items you will not get a Wave II package.

Here are some more previews of what you can expect:

Forces of the Abyss Succubi

Forces of the Abyss Lower Abyssals

Forces of Nature Salamanders

Forces of Nature Naiads

And finally… the Abyssal Fiend! 

Many thanks for your patience and support whilst we’ve got these packages together and shipped out. We look forward to getting you them as quickly as possible!

App Attack

With Kings of War Wave II now getting out, the final components of the Kings of War Kickstarter is the Kings of War App – including Army Creator and Chess Clock. It’s been tested and improved as a result, and the final stages are to get it into the Google and Apple App Stores.

Look out for the Kings of War App coming soon :D

Wave 2 Shipping Update

23 likes

Hello! We hope that you all had a great weekend - and a very happy thanksgiving last week!

Work is continuing on fulfilling the Kings of War Kickstarter.

From Wave 1 there were just over 200 orders who did not receive their pledge, in part due to the software having the ability to remove the core pledge from the cart.

Finishing today, these have all been picked. Most were shipped on Friday, with the remainder completing shipping early this week.

There are a few items that continue to be out of stock – Greater Obsidian Golems and Soul Reaver Knights – that are proving troublesome but we are continuing to work with our partners on getting these items back into stock.

The Kings of War Wave 2 dispatch is expected to begin the week starting 14th December. We are doing everything we can to try and get you your Wave 2 items before Christmas.

For the first time in our company’s history, the boat carrying our stock was halted in Chinese customs. All of the containers were removed and searched, and this was a very lengthy process.

Our container included some retail lines like Ogre Warriors, but also our Kickstarter quantities of the Lower Abyssals.

Once they were approved by Chinese customs, we attempted to have them removed from the container and flown over to us, but we were not allowed – the sprues are on a boat and not due to arrive until the New Year.

So, rather than wait for these sprues, they will become our retail stock for 2016 instead. We’ve gone ahead and commissioned the Kickstarter quantities for the Lower Abyssal again, and are having them flown over to us. The soonest we will get them is the 2nd week of December.

The Naiads and the Salamanders are also being air-freighted to us.

On a positive note this gave us one or two extra weeks proofreading, editing and polishing the Kings of War: Destiny of Kings campaign book.

This book includes all the rules you need for running a narrative campaign, an actual narrative campaign called Quest of the Necromancer (including a new adventure for Dungeon Saga), and rules and stats for using some of the Dungeon Saga heroes in your Kings of War armies.

Only a very small group of backers picked up physical copies of the book, but if you want one the book is due out at retail in February alongside the main Forces of the Abyss army release.
