...as I had no idea what to spend my GG on!

I was wondering, is there any difference between ordering the game now (sadly missed out on the crowdfunding) to pick up at Essen, or just going to the stand to buy it at Essen? I see there are some promos available on the website, but its not clear whether those are available for those turning up at the stand.

Any guidance is helpful

Are these the additional special locations from the 40K stretch goal? I haven't heard about them yet.

Will the game be shipped to Kickstarter Indiegogo backers before it is sold at Essen?

No. It is an Essen release.

I pre-ordered from your website for Essen pickup and picked it up yesterday but did not receive the miniatures.

Also I was wondering if you have news about the Indiegogo promos and if they will be avail in the future.

I went to collect my (Indiegogo) copy at the end of Thursday, and was told to come back on Friday because they had run out of stock in the booth, which was a bit odd.

I returned first thing on Friday and collected my copy, but was told that they had run out of spaceships - so I should come back on Sunday to collect them.

I came back on Sunday, and apparently the delivery of spaceships they had been expecting had not happened - I was told that I would be recieving an email to get my shipping address and that Artipia would be posting the spaceships out. I figure I'll wait a week before chasing them up about it, since post-Essen probably necessitates a multi-day sleep.

I am a little bit miffed, since they clearly had the spaceships available (and for sale, as far as I could tell!) when I went past on Thursday midday, but got sick of waiting in line behind some guy who was taking forever. But at least the spaceships are not a critical component, and at least Artipia are doing what they can to make it right.

the indiegogo promos are listed as "exclusive": Among the Stars: Indiegogo Promos and when I asked at the booth they told me only Indiegogo backers would get them.
