Tunneller Test Shots and Forge Father Tanks Shipping!
In this update: Forge Father Tanks are shipping, shipping times for the Tunnel Runner and Hultr and Plastic Tunneller images!
So it’s been a busy couple of weeks here at Mantic – here’s an update on how things are progressing.
First and foremost – Forge Father Tanks have left the building. We’ve dispatched over a thousand of these to backers over the last few days – they should be arriving with you in the next couple of weeks.
In order to keep the number of parcels you’ll be receiving as low as possible, we are groups the pledges by which vehicles were ordered. If you have ordered a Forge Father Tank, but not a Hultr Half Track, Veer-Myn Tunneller or Tunnel Runner, then your tanks have now been shipped, which brings us to our next point.
The production of the Hultr Half Track and Tunnel Runners is almost complete – slightly later than we’d aimed for as they will finish next week. We will be flying these into the country to ship, which will take a further week. So, we will be sending the next batch of pledges; those with either a Forge Father Tank, Hultr or Tunnel Runner (but not a Tunneller) from the middle of June.
If you have any issues with your pledges, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Finally, we have received the test shots for the Hard Plastic Tunneller. Our Studio Manager is going over them and giving feedback, but as you can see from the images below, the kit looks awesome!
You can assemble the kit with either open or closed doors, add a choice of three different weapons options and even move the drills from open to closed (and back)! You can also attach up to three sections together to add a larger transport capacity for your rats and the sections have a variety of interchangeable panels so that no two need look the same on a longer vehicle.
As these have come out well, we’ll be signing off on production for these once corrections have been made. After that, they’ll be shipped off with the remainder of the orders containing the other vehicles and this one, as soon as we can.
This of course, leaves the bigger question of whether or not we’ll use this new company to tool the remaining vehicles (Asterian Chira/Chroma, GCPS/Plague Hornet, GCPS/Plague Mule). As you can see from the Tunneller, things look very promising. We’ll be discussing this next week, after which we’ll let you know the plan going forward.
As always, thank you for your patience.
The Mantic Team.
