I'm afraid not. In fact, if the printer's latest email comes true, it may actually be late April before we get the Factions shipment. The plastics for the Upgrade Pack are taking a lot longer than I had originally hoped.

No, he didn't jinx it, he just forced me to reveal the sad sad news.

I backed this through Kickstarter, I don't think I received an update mentioning a delay?.

(goes to check the Factions page in Kickstarter...)

Nope, none was posted in fact.

While a lot of us are unfortunately used to production delays affecting KS project, it would have been nice to find out through an update rather than random browsing.

I hope the delay was not caused by the miniatures we got as stretch rewards, that would be sadly ironic in a way

The kickstarter project never promised a specific date - just an estimate. And this post hasn't confirmed a delay - just mentioned the possibility. As the March estimate approaches, I would guess that CMG will announce if there are any confirmed delays.

This doesn't make me sad - I knew it would take a while to produce the awesomeness that is going to come in this. The little model sculpts will take a while to get to us but it'll be so worth it.

Well, if you compare it to the 10 years we waited for Diablo 3.. this extra month waiting for Factions doesn't seem so bad. laugh

Yup, ironic, indeed. The possible delay is, in fact, due to the plastics. I have not made an official announcement because I'm waiting on the plastics proofs...due in early February. Once I get those and can give the stamp of approval we'll be able to calculate a more accurate arrival date.

Whatever date the project arrives, KS backers have my guarantee that their copies will be shipped out at least two weeks before the projects are available for sale in any store or convention. If we miss Origins then we'll shoot for GenCon. If we miss GenCon then maybe someone can carry them to Essen. Kickstarter peeps made this possible and Kickstater peeps will have first crack at it.

On the plus side, I'll be receiving twelve advance copies of Sunrise City next week. Eight of those go out to reviewers...but which reviewers?

Tom got a prototype copy a while back, so I'll have to check with him and see if he wants/needs a production copy.

The others are all good choices who have given great reviews of the original AF, so I'll ask if they're interested.

The rule book is definitely done...didn't I post it on KS or here? Hmmm, I'll look into it.

BTW, I am sure there are a few typos or grammatical errors still in it, so don't rake me over the coals when you find them.

I could have just missed it.

Edit: It was posted to Kickstarter but not here on BGG. Sorry.
