    Sorry, I was doing some testing with the webmaster for this site.  Some people were not able to post links due to anti-SPAM initiatives.

    There is going to be some news very soon however…



  • Link doesn’t work for me, unless you took is down, This is what i get.

    “Fatal error: Method Varien_Object::__tostring() cannot take arguments in /home/berrywar/public_html/fieldmarshalgames.com/lib/Varien/Object.php on line 488”

    Any News on the Italian release? I too was so hopeful back in November of last year when we seemed to be so close. Sorry to say but I feel misled.

    Please announce how much longer you intend the Italians to take.

    We were all mislead by the factory.  I have always kept the community up to date here on this forum.

    The factory was to optimistic on their time line… so we all got burned.

    We are very close now.  The product is ACTUALLY in production.

    whats the story on the rest of the countries?  During this down time of waiting on the Italians and German units, do we have any pictures of what’s coming up next?


  • Customizer

    Hey FMG,
    I am curious about how the mould is designed.  Is it one big mould that has all 150 different pieces for a set?  Or are there separate moulds for each unit type (tank mould, fighter mould, battleship mould, etc.)?



  • What about the Germans are they in production as well. Can we expect the release of both at the same time. Please tell me yes. I am dying for these pieces.


  • '10

    The mould contains all pieces for the Nation.  A full set is made of multiple stampings of the mould.

    The current status is: ITALY - Any day now… they are in production (for real!) GERMANY - Mould is at the foundry being made  USA - Still in sculpting and revisions.

    It looks like GERMANY will be released shortly after ITALY rather than at the same time.  Had some issues with the He 111 that delayed it going into the mould.

    This is the latest information.  I have been quiet on here waiting for the big news myself.

    I will share pictures of USA sculpts as they become available.

    Thanks

    Jeremy



  • Thanks for the info Jeremy. Appreciate can’t wait to see the USA sculpts.

    @FieldMarshalGames:

    The mould contains all pieces for the Nation.  A full set is made of multiple stampings of the mould.

    Okay, then what do they do in the case of different quantities of certain pieces.  For example, a set will have 12 fighters but only 6 TACs and Bombers, 12 Destroyers & Subs but 6 ACs, Battleships & Cruisers.  To make full sets with multiple stampings of the mould, wouldn’t they end up with a lot of extra pieces of the units that are smaller quantities in the sets?  In other words, if they stamped the mould 12 times in order to get 12 destroyers, subs, fighters & artillery, wouldn’t they also end up with 12 Carriers, Battleships, Cruisers, TACs & Bombers?  If so, what would they do with those extra pieces?

    Am I missing something?  Sorry if you covered this already and I just don’t remember it.

    You add multiples of the more common pieces to each mould example: Infantry.
