The Aussie looks great, if his the same size as A&A maybe replace him with the giant ANZAC inf ?
Does anybody know if we’re ever going to get our game?
As of right now yes I believe. But it has been awhile since Iv’e gotten my last e mail.
There is some frequent communication here:
Last comment is from yesterday…
Hello ? Maybe ? Goodbye ? China Blockade ? Never Ever ? Trump Tariffs ? Waiting for Joey’s help with China ? Kick the Bucket B I Bitch ? Play testing still sucks ? He Gone! ? Sold each game for $2.99 in Vietnam ?
@GEN-MANSTEIN said in update on shipping date?:
Sold each game for $2.99 in Vietnam ?
I am so glad I punted on getting this game through Kickstarter…
Me too but their is a chance that it will never be made and the KS money gone. I got burned many times like this, once with that world war one game that was posted here about 7 years ago and flogged like crazy.
Ah an update. Says back on track. Pieces being made Jan maybe Feb. hhhmmmmm.
The pic of the sample pieces lookes quite good. I believe this is the first time that I’ve seen all of the representative pieces together in one picture.
Ya saw pics too. Maybe just maybe.
@GEN-MANSTEIN Who knows. Maybe it happens, I remain in suspense for another 3 years.
I hope so, I have $380.00 invested!
I just sent Eric an email to get updates if he has any.
It looks like he is still working on it …

From Creator Eric Harvey:
Yes, if I could get the plastic pieces started now, I actually would, and in fact am trying to get them going before Jan, but I’m allowing for a buffer (as there always seems to be some sort of obstacle to overcome, I have learned).
Yes, the counters are excellent quality, very much like MMP or GMT. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the same factory.
I would have loved to have used one of their existing counter die blades, but no, the factory won’t let me do that. I had to have my own die blade created. However, the silver lining was that I had it made the way I wanted, and I got the best cardboard, good thickness, and each counter is its own punchout so there’s no print drift to worry about. The printed components will be of the best quality!
And here’s what I’ve heard from Eric:
All the artwork and game piece files are ready, and now that things have returned to a little bit of normalcy (basically my whole production chain just up and dropped everything during the pandemic), things are starting to get back to normal. I hope by the beginning of the new year to have production rolling. I am talking to the factory now about starting production.
@Imperious-Leader I hope you don’t mind that I added the quotes to you post.
I hate to be negative, but I have no faith in this guy. Its ridiculous games on Kickstarter have been flowing during this covid stuff. Not sure why his project has been so adversely effected by it . How late is now 2 years and counting
@Call77 Some people bite off more than they can chew. This is common with game creators on Kickstarter. You don’t know what you don’t know. And if you’ve never tried to make a game that is funded through Kickstarter, there is a whole lot that you don’t know.
I’m not defending this game or this creator, just saying that Kickstarter has made fools of many would-be creators.
Designing a game is hard. Ripping people off is easy. This is somewhere in between. If this guy spent 1 hour working on the game for every 1 hour he spends blabbing on social media and non-answering/addressing what intelligent people say, he could have hand-carved the pieces out of scrimshaw and delivered them on foot by walking to our houses.

@crsluggo 2 years of chill is asking a bit much imo
@crsluggo Why would you still defend him, in any event. You still don’t know what the product is, there are only limited ways to make something for a certain amount of money and time–much less a quality product. He may still deliver; what is delivered in that case is the question. I don’t know what will or will not happen, but he has my money–and I was a fool to give it to him. Whatever process has taken place, if it produces a quality game with the minis promised and playable rules, I’ll eat my hat.
He’s an endless stream of talk. If that generates work and money from thin air and beyond all reasonable explanations, it wont be the first time–and like I said–I dont predict the future only the past.
