I pre-ordered the game three months ago. Has anyone heard anything new?

The latest update is that pre-orders will arrive in March with an official release in April now. Warlord also mentioned that as an apology for the delay pre-orders will contain exclusive content including unique planes and gaming components for free.

How about this as an update:

BLOOD RED SKIES - First Unboxing

In other news: Someone (customer) mentioned an issue with the movement template but referenced a previous conversation so it is not clear what the problem is. Anyone know what is going on with that component?

I don't know what the issue would be... it's a cardboard template with an arc cut in the starting edge to put the front edge of the plane's base into, measurements on where to put the back end up to, and a line to keep your plane pointed the same direction as you had it at the start of movement. It's pretty much exactly what's in your linked video, only not on paper.

My only gripe would be the width of it, since sometimes you can't have a template nearly as wide as the base of your plane poking out in between other models.

But, measurements are in inches, so you can sub out a measuring tape easily... just got to be careful you're moving the plane the right direction.

I think he's complaining that they didn't take his suggestion for a movement template.

Check the comments on this post:

Thank you for the link. That is the same person who complained. It seems like no big deal. Even if the template is not ideal, and I am not even going there untill I try it first, an exesory manufacturer like Litko will make an improved version.

Acrylic, side notch, make it about 1/4" wide at the deepest cut of the side arc. That would be narrow enough to work with.

But the template in the box works... and you can always sub out a measuring tape in the meantime.

Ive seen comments, and also commented myself, on the movement template more then once. Its a bad design and feels half-hearted.
It would be a MUCH better design to have the template placed beside the crafts, and with markings to aid in turning to remove the need for the separate turning template altogether.

They even had a template similar to this in one of the demo videos by Beasts of War and yet the final product features this...flawed design.

edit:

Ok doing some catching up and among the posts on their FB page they have mentioned that they were too late to change anything in the game as it had been cleared for printing but that shortly after release they will have a redesigned template available for purchase.

So its all good

I'm thinking of just playing the game on 1" hexes. Changing direction will be 60 degrees instead of 45 degrees, but eliminates pretty much all of the fiddly templates.

I guess that might work if you want more of a boardgame then a freeform miniature game, but if the template was designed the way mentioned above there really isnt anything fiddly about it, rather straightforward and accurate.

Only if I'm trying to move a plane that is surrounded by other planes, I suppose

That is true, those situations will need some improvisation but hopefully we wont see too many traffic jams
