Vehicles Arrive Tomorrow!
Good news backers!
The Warpath vehicles (Hornet, Mule and Chira) are due to arrive in the warehouse tomorrow (Tuesday). We wanted to give you the date only once we were sure it was accurate, rather than provide inaccurate information. We are aiming to start the shipping process before the end of the week, to be complete shortly afterwards.
As we’ve run into the retail launch date for the GCPS vehicles, these will be shipping to stores before backers, mainly because the Kickstarter shipping is a more complex operation to set up than the retail shipping. We’re very sorry about this, but they will be with you soon and they’re definitely worth the wait. However, the Asterian and Plague vehicles will be shipping out several months (or more) before they launch to retail!
If you need you update your shipping address, it is vital that you get in touch now through firstname.lastname@example.org. In a couple of days, we will start shipping so it will be too late to change your details. We have processed any changes that we have received, so it is only if you haven’t contacted us with a new address that you need to get in touch.
What is being shipped?
Just as a reminder, these are the outstanding products to ship.
- Asterian Chira/Chroma
- Asterian Vehicle Battlegroup
- GCPS/Plague Hornet
- GCPS/Plague Hornet Battlegroup
- GCPS Mule
- GCPS Mule Formation
- Plague Mule
- Plague Mule Formation
The GCPS Mule will have only the components to build the GCPS Mule. The Plague Mule can be used to build either the Plague or GCPS Mule. This was originally planned differently in the Kickstarter (when the Mules were due to be resin), so it wasn’t until we had finalised the production that we were clear on the make up of the kits.
Why did this take so long?
You might remember that the initial shipping time for the Kickstarter was 12 months from the end of the funding period. This is because that is roughly how long it takes to tool a hard plastic kit, especially something as complex as the vehicles.
However, following the Kickstarter we had some issues with the manufacturer we had planned to use for the tooling. This meant we basically had to start the process from scratch and find an entirely different manufacturer. We initially got them to only produce the Veer-myn Tunneller and once we were happy with that, we gave them the green light to make the remaining vehicles.
So, 12 months later we’re now looking at the final production models arriving imminently. We know that it hasn’t been an ideal nor easy wait, but we are very thankful for your patience (and for supporting the project originally) and couldn’t apologise more for the delay. The rewards for you patience will soon be in your hands!
