" We have received our  German Set 3 from China and are in the middle of QC, and will be sending out the pre-ordered sets next week. We will not be offering future pieces in sets but only in pieces in quantity of 5 so please be aware. You will see the sets slowly going away. We have had a major issue with these pieces, we have had 100% failure on the Bismarck and Leipzig ships so these 2 pieces will not be for sale BUT they will be included in the pre-ordered sets plus 2 extra Panzer IV tanks and 2 extra Panzer V tanks to compensate for the defective pieces. We are very sorry about this but it is beyond our control."


Soooo... that is really bad news. I assume this is part of the reason to stop selling full sets.

100% failure sounds to me like the pieces are very warped or disfigured somehow. Apparently they are okay enough to include in the pre-orders but not for individual sale? I don't quite understand. Very unfortunate since both of these were pieces I was REALLY looking forward to getting. Kudos to HBG for including extra tanks to compensate for the problem pieces.

Couple questions for HBG should they be inclined to answer: (1) Any chance of these molds being included or revised for future re-production? (2) If not, could these models be made available through Shapeways (in their appropriate A&A/Battle Pieces scale)?

In their comments section to their Facebook post linking to that newsletter, HBG said they will do 3D printed runs of the Bismark and Leipzig.

When will that be, who knows.
But I'm glad that it will be a thing. I was looking forward to the Bismark the most and didn't realize it until I read that the pieces were defective. Hope to see those 3D printed pieces on their website soon.

Some good news for those of us waiting for the French sets.

Coach has said that they are starting on them very soon.  I've been waiting for these for a while, so I am looking forward to them.

Keen as for the French. Obviously I'll be using them for EW French and Vichy forces, in addition I'll be painting quite a few sculpts as Belgian, Romanian and Spanish republic forces
