The Ares pledge manager lists:
"This item will be released on April 15, 2016. Note: Date is an estimate and subject to change."

Funny, I actually checked about that ~30minutes ago. Under "upcoming" on the Ares website, the AE is not listed for April or May.
April 15 is the date they set when they announced the AE. I wrote an email asking about a new date earlier today. Hopefully, they will confirm April 15, but I think it is unlikely.

Asking for a friend (in case my wife sees this)...

Since they're not releasing it to retailers, they may not put it on the "upcoming" list.

ok, just saw this on their website: US$ 369.90

so the total would be US$ 369.90 + the cost of a divorce lawyer. :)

i'll just enjoy the pictures you guys post here of the game...

All of which you'd be likely to recoup on the secondary market. devil

Actually, I was expecting it to be released before april. Check this :

http://www.aresgames.eu/14936

Quote:
What about the release date ? Is "Spring 2016" realistic or should we expect delays ?
We estimate the release date as "Spring 2016." In fact, we have already started, beginning in March, a production line to manufacture our planned 2,000 sets. Manufacturing of these painted sets will be completed in about 6-8 weeks. Remaining components will require 3 to 5 months to manufacture. So, we are optimistic the release date we set will be achieved, or even improved.

The fact that we haven't seen any previews of components makes me think April release ain't gonna happen.

True, and funny.

My wife wouldn't divorce me. But I would need to add the cost of a helmet.

I agree, it's been uncannily silent. We were supposed to hear something at the start of Feb but I don't think that ever happened.

I'm still hoping that Ares will release the larger map and slip-cases rule book for purchase outside of the complete AE.

This, plus the fact that they are almost 1 year behind on their Age of Conan expansion Kickstarter. They need to get that out the door first, and they are working on at least 2 other Kickstarters (too many projects at once for a small company IMHO)

I would hope that the Anniversary edition releases by Gen Con, but I wouldn't even count on that. I do not mind a wait, the most important thing for me is quality - this edition needs to be pristine, from paint jobs on minis to the rulebook.

I agree that Ares silence is becoming annoying, especially after last year declaration and their over confidence they would deliver on time. For now, we don't even have designer diaries, nor a word from Roberto, but they have the money for sure (and this is no kickstarter, but preorder - really not the same thing). Really disappointing attitude.

Well, I think that Ares has earned some trust from all of us.

I, too am surprised that they didn't offer any reports, photos etc to those of us who fronted considerable money to them so long ago. I would have, if it was me.

But all they really need to do is ship around April 15th and they will have lived up to their responsibilities.

I should mention that any word of a sudden substantial delay now, with delivery just a month and a half away, would be seen as EXTEREMELY poor form and that is all because of the lack of communication over the past year.

So right now any word for them would be welcome (and would be, you know, the right thing to do) but, if not, just be sure that my shipment goes out on time and all is well.

Unless the word is "delayed" right?

Yes, looking forward to the update since it could only be good news. It will be the first real news given to buyers and comes a month prior to promised delivery--it would take a special kind of disingenuousness to suddenly decide that there is some delay, etc (especially after keeping us in the dark for a year).

This is great news for those who have pre-ordered.

Hopefully you can also indicate whether the board and slip-cased special edition rule book will be available separately. Even if the answer is that no, they will not be available, it would be nice to have a firm answer.

I'm not too worried about it. Ares customer service has been nothing but awesome in the past, so they've earned some slack with me. I always have my regular version to play if I need to get a game in.
