Greeting venerable backers of WARMACHINE: Tactics!
We've got lots of reward shipping info for you here, and a great new backer update video you won't want to miss!

Many of you have already received your physical rewards and we've been very pleased by your overwhelming positive feedback! We've been excited to bring you these exclusive items and are very happy they're finally finding their way to our revered backers.

IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR REWARDS YET, DON'T PANIC!

Shipping will be continuing through the end of April. With over 20,000 backers, the task of packing and shipping all the rewards is monumental! We've tackled the job in the most efficient way we could devise, grouping rewards in tiers and packing them and shipping in waves, but we're only about 25% of the way through fulfillment right now, so if your rewards haven't shown up yet, don't worry that there is a problem. Your rewards are most likely just coming in a different wave. 

If you have not received your order by the end of April, please contact Privateer Press Customer service at:

frontdesk@privateepress.com

UK & EU BACKERS
For our backers in the UK, please be aware that in order to arrange for the lower shipping rates to the UK and EU, we are bulk shipping to our UK manufacturing partner, Cerberus, located in Liverpool. Cerberus will ship the individual rewards once they arrive there, which has saved a great deal of money on shipping. However, this does mean that your rewards will show up later than others, and possibly after April 30th, depending on how quickly they reach Cerberus and can be rerouted. We apologize for this added delay and hope that the savings to your shipping costs will be worth the wait.

CANVAS PRINTS
If you have a canvas print coming, please note that they will ship separate of all other physical rewards and may arrive later (or even earlier) than your other rewards. All canvas prints are expected to ship by the end of April.

DAMAGED REWARDS OR MISSING PIECES
While we have taken every measure to ensure the accuracy of our packing and the safe delivery of your rewards, sometimes fate works against us. If you happen to receive a reward that is damaged or that is missing a piece or any other component of your reward, please contact Privateer Press Customer Service at:

frontdesk@privateerpress.com

Include your name, your shipping address, and the email address associated with your Backerkit Profile. Tell our Customer Service what the problem is and they'll take care of the issue as quickly as possible. 

NEW BACKER UPDATE VIDEO
WhiteMoon Dreams has been hard at work bringing WARMACHINE:Tactics to life and it's looking better and better every day! They've got a new video to share that shows some fantastic new concept art, map designs, and never-before-seen gameplay! Check it out!

RANDOM AWESOMENESS

Greetings esteemed backers of WARMACHINE: TACTICS!

The fun never stops on this project, and we've been crazy-busy with WARMACHINE: TACTICS in this first month of 2014. Here are some of the highlights:

METAL MUSIC
Inyoung Whang is the talent behind the first music track you hear in our Kickstarter video — you know, that intense jam that all the metal-on-metal action is timed to. In his spare time, Inyoung has expanded what he did into a killer remix, which he wanted to give to all the amazing backers of WARMACHINE: TACTICS!

Download the MP3 here:
http://files.privateerpress.com/warmachinetactics/ForgedinFire.mp3

ABOUT INYOUNG WHANG
Inyoung is a professional musician who has specialized in Electronic Music since his teenage years. He has always been fond of movie scores and soundtracks and was excited to combine all his favorite elements into one track for a miniature game he loves.

He obtained his first miniature from a Renaissance Fair as a child. He promptly demanded his mom find out where he could buy more of these peculiar figurines. After an extensive search they finally visited a local hobby shop and was introduced to the world of tabletop wargaming. During his early 20's he had taken a break to focus on music but would occasionally stop by random shops to see the state of the industry. It was almost a decade later he was then demo'd Warmachine and Hordes and was instantly hooked again. He is currently a loyal servant to the Khadoran Empress.

SOUNDTRACK
On a related note (see what I did there?), David Bergeaud, our composer has begun work laying out the themes and instruments for the factions and we’re about to begin doing some scoring tests on footage of the game! We'll share the tests as soon as we have something for you to hear.

GET SHORTY
In other news, WARMACHINE: TACTICS has been nominated for a Shorty award in Kickstarter of the Year! We're honored to be recognized for the success of the WARMACHINE: TACTICS Kickstarter campaign and once again have all of you to thank for getting us there. We'd love your support in the form for a tweet, so check out our nomination page and let's unleash the power of the WARMACHINE: TACTICS community one more time!

REWARDS UPDATE
Production on the physical rewards is 99% complete and pack out will begin in the next month. We are squarely on target to deliver the rewards in April as originally targeted and will announce as soon as everything is ready to ship.

CONCEPT ART & DEVELOPMENT
Meanwhile, major progress has been made on the development of WARMACHINE: TACTICS. Piles of concept art are being created, new models are reaching various levels of completion every day, we have a first draft of the single-player No Man's Land campaign that is the length of a feature screenplay, and we've got spells and power attacks working in the game! WhiteMoon Dreams also has a new Backer Update video nearly complete that we'll be sharing with you in a couple weeks so you can see all the new behind-the-scenes action that is going into this game.

Here are a few of the juicy morsels that have been coming across my desk lately:
