Blood and Plunder Shipping Update

Posted by Firelock Games (Creator)

Hello everyone , here is a logistical update:  

We will start shipping sometime in December ( which should be incredible news to all backers that the product is actually finished ) that does not mean there is a guaranteed date of delivery in December for any particular customer . As you can imagine we have to sort out through the equivalent of a year's worth of orders in a month etc .

 Also European orders will go out to a central distribution point within the EU then ship out within the EU . So the guarantee is that Kickstarter orders will ship out sometime in December but more than likely not all customers will be receiving orders at the same time . We also have a few potential delays ( although not big ones ) , our current location's air conditioners have not been properly working . This causes a delay in producing the ships as they have to be produced at a certain temperature . We are in the process of negotiating a different lease to another location . This might cause a delay , although not a long one, perhaps a week. The last one is the rulebook , it is finished but we have been informed that we are still 6 weeks out from receiving our shipment . Again it shouldn't impact us starting to ship out orders in December and I only mention this as we have control of all materials and all production done in house ( miniatures and ships etc) but we are not doing the printing of the rulebook in house , so that is a bit out of our control etc . This is an honest and transparent look at how everything is shaping up logistically .

Please send us your address changes -

If you need your rewards to be sent to an address other than the one you gave us in June, please send an email with your new address to 'info@firelockgames.com'. We have confirmed many address changes over the last few months. If we have already communicated, there is no need to worry. Once the orders have become to ship, it will become much more difficult to change this information.

      Thank you for the update. Did you settle on the background for the rulebook?
