For a week or so, it was down and they had a notice that they were trying to "recover previous data" (or whatever). Now the site is completely gone. Any other members of the site have input? Perhaps it had to completely go to start a new site. I hope it returns in some form as it was a place to discuss Dust without the ancient rancor.

That is Paolo's home site. I was referring to the Dust News & Rumours/Dust Chronicles site that has been up for eight or nine months(?). It is completely gone, as is the Dust Chronicles site (Dust-Monthly). It is a bit weird...and I am wondering if there is something that happened behind the scenes....

He is right, dust monthly and the forum seem to be gone.
If that is not a bad sign?
Maybe the last enthusiasts for this game have started running away.
How should they justify the last lie from DS regarding delivery of KS wave3?

Wait? What's this about? Who is cancelling the wave 3 delivery? This is the first I've heard of this.

Briefly.....

Back in December, BF and DS came to final agreement on wave 3 and DS began production.

About a month ago, production was complete. Several sources in the Dust FB pages said it was shipping/on the water.

This week, it was revealed that it was NOT shipped - that DS were requiring BF to sign an additional agreement to promise only to ship the product to backers.

There is an email from BF that says they have signed this, sent it to DS three times, but that DS are refusing to countersign it and ship the goods.

Thanks for the information Stu.

I'm one of those people waiting on wave 3, and I haven't heard anything from the Kickstarter updates. It's good to hear about it from you guys. You seem to be better connected or informed about this than I am.

So what happens next? Do we sit and wait? Has there been any official announcements from either companies?

Nope. Neither company gives a toss about the backers. Battlefront haven't said a thing since December. Dust Studios sometimes post outdated or incorrect information on their Facebook page/s, but are loathe to give straight answers to direct questions.

DS seems to have a problem with miniatures sold by Miniature market.
But I doubt that Miniature market has not been a retail backer.
If Miniature Market gets wave 3 and the exclusives, DS will most likely sell no miniature for the next months with their crazy prices.

It looks as if they want to force BF not to deliver to Miniature market and maybe the other retailers that backed, too.
Therefore they keep us hostage again.
