Update 2! Backer surveys needed!

Posted by Fourth Quarter Miniatures Limited (Creator)

Hello Backers!

Thanks you so much to the majority of people who have completed their backer survey. We want to move forward with all orders at the same time, so please complete your backer survey ASAP and we can then contact everyone about postage and add ons. Please ruturn them by the 10th of March if you wish to receive your order on time. Thanks! This process is slightly slower than we expected, but is in process.

Good news! The STL files for the stretch goals and add on figures were completed ahead of schedule and went straight off to our caster. We also have confirmed and paid for the next batch of core figures, so these should (UK weather permitting) be in production very soon.

Good news part two: we have received samples of very high quality plastic cards. And hopefully, we can agree a price to use these for the game.They are very hard wearing, which negates the need for sleeves. (Unless you want to put them in sleeves, then still feel free).

Good news part three! We also plan to make the game board as hard wearing as possible, as a result, we are awaiting a prototype of this. 

Good News: Part Four: Rules are currently bouncing between an editor and myself. It's a slow process, as you should never put a person with two law degrees, and a professional editor together. :)

Cards: Shhhhh! But the new card designs look awesome. Our amazing designer is about to start converting all the cards into the new format. Preivew of these cards coming very soon.

So that is the state of play at the moment. Any questions, please let me know.

      Very reassuring, I didn't expect delays given the pre-production, I just like to get an idea of how things are going against expectations :) Thank you

      Yes it is. If I was worried, I would let people know. I don't like surprises.
      The rules are fine, it's just we want them to be fun to read, and that's what we are trying to work on at the moment.
      We are on budget and we are trying to put the vast majority of the money into the game production. Hence we have upgraded, or expanded components where possible.
      As I may have mentioned before, we had quite a large number of figire sets produced before the Kickstarter even started. This meant there are no budget or production issues with the base game.
      Also, unlike the majority of other Kickstarters, we are producing the vast majority of the game in our home country (the UK). As a result, there are less of those dreaded months of delay while stuff ships from China.
      Hope this helps.

      How do you feel like you are progressing with the project overall? Do you feel that a shipping date of August, only 5 months away, is still achievable? Sounds like you could be potentially in front on the models but rules may be slow. I cant speak for other backers, but I do like seeing comparisons to budget and actual (or anticipated) whether its timing or financial.
