From the latest Kickstarter update:

Quote:
We had mentioned it offhandedly here and there, but a couple people brought to my attention that I hadn't made a formal announcement yet.

We are currently targeted August as our launch month. The delay is mostly due to the extra art that had to be done for 'Mancers and Summer Break, as well as a few family issues with our artist.

Now that things are in the hands of our printer, we have a tight deadline set for early August, to debut the game at GenCon 2014 and ship it out to you at the same time.


Two months behind the originally proposed release date is right on time as far as I'm concerned with Kickstarter. Can't wait to get this in August!

I feel like no release date is final until the finished product is in the hands of the publisher. Manufacturing and shipping are just such informational swamps! It seems like there are always new bad surprises to stumble on.

But even so, I hold out hope for this to arrive in time for me to play it with the British friend who's in town through the summer.

Yeah, and this is Level99's first game with miniatures, isn't it? The proofs looked good but who knows what unforseen hurdles could arise.

But I will remain an eternal optimist for this game.

I should be ok, with Pixel Tactics 3 coming I can hold out until September no worries.

Mind you, I could do that with all of Lvl99Games products.

Wow, this point keeps escaping me. We are going to have actual figures! How exciting is that?

It could be the start of great things for the future! We'll see how this game goes

I hope it comes in time for my birthday in August - that would be an awesome gift!

But I don't get excited about any ship date until they are actually shipping.

Is this still on target for August? Since files were just sent recently, it seems like an awfully fast turnaround.

August 31st is the date here in Australia right now, and only just got my backer kit confirmation email yesterday. So I'm ruling out August.

From the Kickstarter update:
Quote:
We're finally back from GenCon, AND I have received fixed proofs of the VAC tray and stands for Argent, and approved both, so the game is now finishing production. We're hoping to have it in our hands by the end of September, but it could be a few weeks longer, just due to shipping delays and customs and all the things that can go wrong there too.


So, it looks like the estimate is end of September to mid-October. As it relates to time frames for board game releases, I think expecting it by November is pretty realistic.

I'm just hoping I have it by BGG.con so I can play it there. As long as that happens, I'm happy.

It's really a shame if it slips in to the post-Essen mayhem of games and get's overshadowed by that

I lied; my complacency is melting away and I just want the game NOW!

I don't think so, as it has not shipped yet. It should be shipping any day now though!

Tell him to update on Kickstarter when you do! It's been almost two weeks! The masses demand soothing!

Well, okay, if there's no news then there's no news, and not much content for an update. But I'm still jonesing for Argent info.
