    Amazing news! Who would belive it? Another delay . . . hmmm . . . HOT RATS! My Mars Bars will never be opened and the elves party has to be rescheduled, again!

    I noticed on Ares site that they will be the US distributor for U-BOOT, another Kickstarter I am in that is due any time now.
    Sure hope that’s not the kiss of death ...

    According to the Ares Upcoming page, the Tripods material will be released to shops in phases. Will all the Kickstarter supporters receive their material in one delivery or will it be split? Will we receive it before it reaches the shops?

    Good question Dave, and the answer to these will be instrumental in my decision on supporting any future Kickstarter.

    In keeping with the positive vibes, I am going to believe that we Kickstarter backers will receive all of our goodies in one go. Don't let me down, Ares!

    All the best,
    Matt

    Mine will hinge on them moving production out of China!

    I thought that part of the ‘carrot’ for kickstarters was that we would receive the product ahead of retail release plus, of course, the extras included.

    Do you think we'll ever get everything they promised? I'd be impressed if Ares can deliver most of what they promised.

    A while back one of the 'Girl Genius' Kickstarts shipped the new book to retail outlets before shipping to the Kickstarter supporters. I no longer support 'Girl Genius' Kickstarters.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    Great comic but yea, that would have annoyed me as well. For me it is that you can USUALLY get the initial batch cheaper than retail. (Overall with the extras that are normally included) But that can also be hit or miss.

    It could be worse, it could be AvP!

    I am not entirely sure I remember precisely what they said. Either we (Kickstart backers) get the stuff a month ahead of general release, or we just get any “second invasion” stuff ahead of the general release, because that is being staged a month or two behind the initial release. Inasmuch as I don’t recall any initial promises from Ares on that front, it doesn’t matter all that much to me just so long as I get my copy promptly.

    Actually I'm not too worried about delays. As above, I'm more concerned with getting everything promised. But I have plenty of games to play and I sort of expect manufacturing and/or Kickstarter delays. On a couple of other Kickstarter campaigns/projects they have multi-wave shipping. On two of them I opted for single shipment so it has been well over a year for both. I'm a little envious of those getting multi-shipments and seeing their posts of them playing the game. But, again it was my choice. So really I kind of expect the delays. Too bad we see them from an established company but I'm okay.

    Besides, hehe, this give me more time to try and figure where everything is going to be stored.

    The one difference is none of us will develop "Stockholm Syndrome" in this hostage situation.


    Here's to them what are like us. Damn few and they're all dead.

    Here I was hoping we were ready to ship by month end and were are still in the final.....final.....final stage. Not sure how many more final stages there are to go but I have noticed all interest in the game at the local shop has flat lined while people are waiting for this to come out. Nothing has sold in months and no one is playing anything anymore. Interest has switched over to Cruel Seals and the like. Failure to deliver this and no new releases in around a year have killed all interest in Ares product. Not a good sign.

    Yep and ‘a picture of your dear ones’ is referring to the images of the tripods miniatures posted that we have yet to see even though we have paid our money!!

    Again, I prefer to remain optomistic - those beautiful alien machines (along with all the rest of my 'Total War' support package) will be in the mail shortly, winging their way to SW Ohio! Stop with those negative vibes, Moriarity!

    I know, there is plenty to be 'negative' about, but positivity will win the day!

    All the best - and hang in there,

    To get the positive out of it Matt, I am starting to find some of the remarks quite amusing, and after all in the end we will be the winners not only financially but because without our backing it may not have happened. In the words of the fameous Football song:-

    "We are the champignons".

    Sorry "champions" Flipping predictive text!

    There was a picture on my Facebook feed from Ares this morning of the boxed set 'unboxed' for the first time - things continue to look promising The box actually looks pretty packed with goodies - not 'mush room' in it for anything else...

    All the best,

    I wonder if the box for T&T is the same as the extra box that promised for storage. It looks pretty large.

    That is true.
    Must confess I have recently ordered and yesterday got Warlord's Blood Red Skies Bf 110 squadron pack for about 20 GBP (delivery included) from a local retailer and those 6 minis with stands look...terrific/wow!
    They need to be pimped of course (it is a piece of cake for me), but came with a super fine squadron decals sheet...

    Same. Edit in: whoops. That’s just the bottom of the box on the right, I think.

    Oh, those awful, useless plastic inserts again.
    Game publishers should care more for the planet...

    It would be nice if more publishers would make inserts designed for use and expansion. Some game companies have, but there are a lot that don't.
