"Just to confirm - despite the Basilean Troops not actually having been BOGOF at all (£17 Kickstarter price without metal command parts vs £20 retail with command parts), are Mantic not going to attempt to restore parity like they did with the Ogres?"
Yeah, I'd be interested to see if there's a response with regard to that, it's a little disappointing, especially the lack of command bits, considering the fact I spent like $205 on extras!
@Arthur - this was a week ago, though. I'm sure everyone's extremely busy sorting out production and the 3rd wave shipments - it was only that we didn't have information on final pricing until a week ago, and my query was about the imminent 3rd wave shipments!
I suspect the answer is that they can't make any changes, and that's fine (they did tell us exactly how many troops we were paying for after all, even if the 'no command bits included' was a bit of a shock). I'll just avoid buying 'extras' from Mantic Kickstarters in the future, since the designs, numbers and pricing have all been shown to change quite a bit from concept to execution.
I thought they said Stewart is in China, so you might not hear from him for a few days.
Every day my faith in kickstarter is eroded a little more and my anger at how "some" companies treat Australian customers gets a little closer to boiling point. Then you guys come out of seemingly nowhere to remind me again that not everyone is like that. Thank you Mantic for keeping us in the loop, thank you for your timely deliveries, thank you for the amazing value that just keeps getting better and thank you for holding yourselves to a standard in this industry that is sooo far above others it is the only thing stopping me from throwing in the towel on wargames entirely. I've decided to stop focusing on the companies that overcharge, misinform and exploit overseas customers and start promoting the ones that don't. So from now on you guys are my favorite company and the first one I will recommend.
eagerly awaiting shipping date news : )

I've received no response from Stewart on this from an email sent last Saturday, which seems a bit atypical of Mantic's normal customer service. Imagine things are a bit frantic right now!
So I will hopefully I will be able to start reading the Bloodstone Cirillion as soon as I finish the book I'm reading.
