Hi everyone,

We just wanted to give you a quick update about the status of the remaining vehicles for the Kickstarter. As you are aware, we were hit with a manufacturing problem for the vehicles earlier in the year, which meant we had to find a new manufacturer for the outstanding vehicles.

The good news is that we've now found a manufacturer and have sent the remaining vehicles to be tooled ready for release. So, the status on the remaining vehicles to be delivered as part of the Kickstarter is as follows:

Veer-myn Tunnel Runners - we are expecting these to be delivered to our warehouse any day now and they'll be dispatched as soon as possible.

Forge Father Hultr - we are expecting these to be delivered to our warehouse any day now and they'll be dispatched as soon as possible

Veer-myn Tunneller - this was the vehicle we sent to the new manufacturer to test their capability to produce the remaining vehicles. We've had the final prototype through and we're pleased with the results, so the manufacturing process has now started on the Tunneller. Once complete we'll get them sent to our UK warehouse as soon as possible and will begin shipping

Asterian Chira Transport - now we're happy with the new manufacturer, this will be sent for tooling and the manufacturing process can begin. We expect to deliver this to Kickstarter backers at the end of the year

Mule - now we're happy with the new manufacturer, this will be sent for tooling and the manufacturing process can begin. We expect to deliver this to Kickstarter backers at the end of the year

Hornet Dropship - now we're happy with the new manufacturer, this will be sent for tooling and the manufacturing process can begin. We expect to deliver this to Kickstarter backers at the end of the year

Once again, we're sorry for the delay in getting the vehicles out to all the backers but there is now a solution in place and we expect to have everything delivered by the end of the year. Thank you for your patience!

      Heya Mantic, are you willing to share what exactly went wrong with the original manufacturer?

      @Graham You'll be getting two shipments.

      @Matthew The Mules are still specific (unlike the Hornet, which includes both variants). So if you ordered a set of GCPS Mules, you will only receive the components to build the GCPS Mules and vice versa for Plague Mules. If you want to swap, it may not be possible at this time but contact support@manticgames.com.

      It isn't clear from this, but are those of us waiting for vehicles in the "any day now" category and vehicles in the "end of year" category getting two shipments (any day now and end of year) or are we waiting till the end of year for everything?

      Cheers,
      Graham

      Will both mules be the same kit like the hornets? I went with the 3 pack of GCPS mules because I wanted the hard plastic, since no one could confirm that would be the case with the plague ones. But, if the plague ones are the GCPS kit plus extras, it would be nice to swap to what I originally wanted (I've got plague and GCPS battle groups, with hornets and mules which I plan to use for both)

      Don't mind the waiting at all. I'm glad you're taking the time to do the vehicles right. Ultimately it's the right choice for both your backers and your long-term market success.

      @ DUMP Mules of both flavours will be Hard Plastic.

      So does this mean that the Mules willl also be in HIP instead of resin?

      Nice to have an update and I would certainly prefer a quality product to a rush job.

      Cheers for the update. Appreciate that problems can happen, especially with manufacturing. Good to have an idea of where everything is at.
