Vanguard Shipping Update - October 23rd

Posted by Mantic Games (Creator)

Ho! Vanguardians,

A quick update today to let you know that the shipping process is well underway. We've already shipped the majority of the Rulebook Only Pledges, Two-player sets and Join the Vanguard pledges. We're also working our way through the Giant Pledges too - which make up the majority of the Kickstarter.

Currently the warehouse team is busy picking and packing the remaining Giant Pledges, alongside the more complicated orders with lots of optional extras. So, if you haven't received a shipping notification yet, don't worry! The shipping process is still ongoing and we're expecting to be finished by the end of this week - barring any more unseen problems (like FedEx crashing all the time... grrrrrrrrrr!)

We'll post another update once the shipping process is complete... and then you can start to worry if you haven't received a shipping notification ;-)

Please note that Rulebook Only pledges will NOT receive a notification because they've been sent via Royal Mail.

In the meantime, make sure you head over to our Facebook page to watch Vanguard live steams all week. What's more, we'll be hosting a Q&A with creator Matt Gilbert on Saturday during a special Vanguard Launch Event here at Mantic HQ. Stay tuned for more details on that.

Thanks for your support - and your pledge will be with you very soon!

      Not sure how this all works, but I have only received the Vanguard book, 3 minis and cardboard tabs, I pledged $150 and believe I am do a bunch of other minis, including a giant. David Eiler 620 Tamsen Rd Fernley NV 68103 USA

      Now that (some) retail and pre-orders are going out can we get an update on where we are on the KS shipping?

      My Giant Pledge has arrived, here, in New Zealand.

      At first I thought it was missing the bard, but I eventually found him with the scenario objective markers.

      All in all, I'm reasonably happy with it, although the KS Exclusive rulebook is a little disappointing: a cover picture that is so dark as to be barely discernible shades of black is rather underwhelming...

      Is the neoprene gaming mat supposed to ship separately? I only received the paper mat.

      @Christoph You are not the first. I think you would have found them when you broke the box down for recycling or emptied it again. But is quick check taking stuff out and then putting it back in (without lifting the "empty box") it is not that hard to miss.

      @Christoph Make sure you unpack the box completely. There is a false bottom card board piece protecting the rulebook, mat, tokens, dice, Blaine mini, Bard card all in the bottom.

      Received my Giant Pledge today. It's missing the rulebook, the d8, token and all the misc. stuff like that.
      Is that being shipped extra? If not, where can I direct my wrath to get the missing stuff? =P

      @Jon It is a war game which once you build the models they no longer go in the boxes as is pretty standard. The retail boxes are not storage boxes and there is no starter set for the game at retail they are just al-carte bundles.

      My copy arrived, not very happy eveything is plastic bags and small brown boxes, there is no game box to keep everything in and they think this reasonable for the money...... extremley poor I won't be purchasing anything else from Mantic games and my copy will be going on Ebay

      Poland, giant pledge, arrived just now. Unfortunately, QA in the packing department is clearly lacking ;(. Blaine's card was wrapped around the miniature, and a rulebook that someone dropped on its corner was packed (there is nothing inside the box where the rulebook lies that could cause that damage - and outer box is in good condition) That's the result of a very cursory assessment, I've got to clean up a shattered heat-resistant dish I broke due to excitement XD

    13. Darkson on

      *sigh* Typical that I seem to be one of the last to get mine (still no tracking email), especially when I have a few days to read the rulebook thoroughly. :(

      Just not sure ho much longer I can wait, patience is a virtue just not one I was born with.

      @Leah - the bard is on the same tool as the vanguard objectives (supply counters, power stones etc.)
