Happy New Year Heroes!

Its been a little while since my last update due to holiday madness and lots of other goings on. I trust that all of you had a good holiday season and a game-filled New Year, I know I did! 

First I'm sure all of you would like a production status update. According to the latest from Panda (as of this morning), Panda still intends to have production wrapped up before Chinese New Year. I really REALLY hope they can deliver on this. I have started coordinating with Panda and my fulfillment partners to arrange shipments once production is complete and with luck we will be on the high seas before February! This mean fulfillment can begin in March if the shipments get out of China on time.

Here is the status graphic:

Minis!

For those lucky few backers who backed at the Super-Limited-Edition level with hand-painted character minis, I have received the minis from the factory so that I can get started with painting. Here are some photos of all of the minis and crystals. There was a slight mixup with my request for these so I ended up with way too many miniatures. For those who will be receiving them, I will be sending you a note regarding the miniatures and will be sending the miniatures to you separately from the game itself. The games will ship from the fulfillment hubs as usual. 

So many crystals!
So many crystals!
I decided to try painting the base of one of the crystals just for fun. :)

As i begin refine my painting process and really get working I will be making videos outlining my process for each character. Remember that I'm not a pro or an expert miniature painter but I will do my best to explain how I go about painting them. :)

I hope to have an update soon showing the MPC (manufactured proof copy) for the game once it arrives. It still may be a week or more before it shows up according to Panda, which is later than I was originally promised. I can't wait to receive it!

As usual I very much appreciate your continued patience but I am more certain than ever than it will be well worth the wait!

Before I sign off I wanted to share a quick pic from "City: Genesis" a new game I'm working on to launch this year on Kickstarter. Its a city-building game with some real depth that will also have awesome minis and great components!

This is a proto map concept in low res and much smaller than it will be in the final game, will share more pics as development continues. I'm super excited about this concept!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I will update you guys as soon as I have any additional news (should be soon!)

Cheers!

      Thanks for the Update, very excited for this game!!!
      Really looking forward to the painting videos as well as Ive never painted minis but am hoping to give it a go with Quodd Heros. I love a good city building game so with your attention to detail and dedication to making amazing games, it sounds like a winner.

      I played a pre-pre-pre-pre prototype copy of this but really enjoyed it them. Now it is looking even more amazing, I can't wait to get the final game here...

      @Mathis... you ninja'd my "polite" comment.... hehe.... I've heard the same about it being impolite to not say things will be done "soon" or even next month; when they really can't be...
      Panda is a good company and the game will get delivered once it's ready ... :)

      Really looking forward to this one as well.... I hope Panda wasn't just being polite and these get on the water before CNY (the Year of the Cube I think), but if not... we are still getting close! Crystals look really nice.
      Can't wait to see more on your new game as well. Happy New Year.

      In multiple experience reports by creators who worked with chinese companies, I read that they tend to over-promise, even if they could not hold a deadline because on a cultural level it is very rude for them to decline a request.

      Sounds a bit stereotypical to me but
      regardless if the games will be shipped before or after cny I‘am looking forward to it.

      I was lucky enough to see the display board at GenCon and all the material and cubes were amazing. There is a decent weight to the cubes and the details are so much better in person than photos. I’m really looking forward to getting this game. It was worth the wait and I’m glad I supported this.
