so far their plan looks like a release at the same time.
And given the elements shown from the expansions that might be realistic.

If the game as a whole will be on time is another question.

Everything is planned to be delivered in one go - otherwise shipping would become way too expensive.

Yep, it will be interesting to see, if they manage.

They seem very determined to make the deadline without any delays, so I am cautiously optimistic (but won't start whining, if they miss it by a few months).

It would, of course, be great for their reputation, considering the delays with the Conan Kickstarter. They are, already, earning a lot of points for their current handling of the Mythic Battles campaign, which is really well executed.

Bye

They're way ahead of where most similar KS are at the same stage. We've not seen anything less than a render for any units so far, and some are tooled and a few tweaks away from being ready for manufacture. We've also been told that the game is fully designed and playtested barring any additional scenarios which are getting added during the campaign. All of which means that even if the Dec 17 can't be hit, and I'm cautiously optimistic that it can, that there shouldn't be a situation in which the core box is ready six or months earlier than the rest of the product.

Yep. The fact that a lot of sculpts/renders are already delivered at the manufacturer may on the one heand mean they can not be altered anymore, on the other it means production is ready to start anytime soon.

I have the idea they are very very well prepared and have learnt a lot from their previous Conan campaign. So not worried at all, not that I expect them to be on time (I think 5% of the KS are) - but it won't be half a year late. And I won't mind being pleasantly surprised!

No need to say sorry, it's more than good enough

They would like all of the expansions to be in stores, but can't 100% guarantee it because it depends on there being distributors and stores willing to carry them. I'm pretty sure they've said if Conan is a success in stores then that will help with Mythic Battles.

The whole KS content will be delivered at the same time. The delivery date is scheduled on December 2017. Please note that all miniatures presented so far are sculpted and that we have the molds for most of them or the molds are under production. We just received today new plastic casts from the factory and we made a live on kickstarer to show them (you can see it on the KS page). We benefit from Monolith's experience on Conan. Mythic Battles: Pantheon is way more advanced than Conan was at the same stage. Conan's mistakes will not be repeated and the delivery will be smoother.

While I might be perhaps a tad overly optimistic, I have a feeling that they might actually complete delivery earlier than their time frame of December 2017. Perhaps even by as much as a month. No idea why I have this perception or where it comes from, but hey a little bit of optimism never hurts.

This is exactly what the situation is. At this stage we hope to have at least the 3 major expansions on store (Poseidon, Hephaestus and Hera) but we cannot guarantee it. Please note that if these expansions are released on store, they will be more expensive than on the KS and that they will not include the KSE content.

Well, you know how things can go… After Conan we are cautious. We are announcing a conservative delivery date that we trust we will meet.

Yew but they told me that the shipping price rises +10 euros for each add-on so the price for the expansion is the same with the retail version(ok i know that you will not have the KS miniature) what about this?????

I can't imagine. But yes, a few more shipping estimates on the campaign page would be nice.
You just don't want angry backers demanding a refund because shipping went from $25 to $70.

Well, unless you have a store near you, which will have it on the shelf, you will have shipping cost either way.

Pick the boxes up in Paris, perhaps?

hmm for me that would be something like 100-200 EUR depending on mode of travel - I think I would prefer delivery

I think the estimates on the main page are based on Conan with Core+Stretch Goal boxes, at least I remember reading something in that direction.

Since when has that stopped KS projects before? They just apologize and pass the shipping on to the backers.

You've already paid for the product so unless you cough up the extra shipping you just made a donation.

I'd like to hear from the creators themselves what the fulfillment plan is.

Agreed could Benoit please provide some insight on the shipping plan and its cost for the large bundles or per addon?

Well on this particular point, since Monolith is involved, you can be assured this won't happen. I mean, on Conan, they did get late, they did apologize for sending 2 waves, but the backers didn't have to pay one cent more. All the additional money came from Monolith pocket.

Now, Monolith learned a lot from Conan mistakes, they are now a much bigger team, they are associated with a second publisher (Mythic Games), and they are much more advanced with production than they were at the time of Conan KS. So I am quite certain that things won't be that bad.
