Hi There Factions Backers. You've been very patiently waiting for some updated news.
There is, as the saying goes, good news and bad news.
The good news is that the pre-proofs for the REV and Field Generator Plastics are looking SWEET! Take a look at these. The REV is just like it was in Alex's sculpt, but the Field Generators were upgraded by Panda's art team to give them sharper angles, smoother sides, and an all-around spiffied up appearance. In the images below, the dark green sculpts are the originals and the lighter casts are the upgrades.
The colony domes also got an upgrade, but until they cast the clear plastic domes they're not really anything to see. I'll post a big unveiling when they're ready.
Now, the bad news. We are simply not going to meet the original March 2012 target. The plastics factory was just so backlogged that they've only gotten to our project in that last few weeks. At this point, I do not expect to have the AFF items until sometime in June. Sorry.
As per my backer promise, though, you can rest assured that your stuff will be mailed out at least two weeks BEFORE these items are available in any store or convention or back-alley black market. After your advance access is satisfied we'll send them out to retailers and will probably aim at GenCon to be the big release event.
Thanks for your support and your patience.
