Here is the progress.

Date: 20 Apr 2013



Date: 22 Apr 2013

Quite a bit of progress in the last 4 days. We are moving some artists around to speed up the process as much as possible and to accommodate some of their schedule concerns.



Date: 01 May 13



Date: 10 May 13



Date: 23 May 13



Date: 04 Jul 13



Lay out is happening.

Date: 03 Aug 13

All the soldier art is done except for the Romanians. The artist keeps blowing his own deadlines. Luckily this was the only country he took on.


Final template for Soldier Card is done. Some countries have been layed out already.

Weapon Card is done finally on version 20.

AFV card will be finished this weekend and layout started.

All the terrain decks have been layed out and are going through proofing. Mark Poole is redoing one wire, a couple heroes, and Jungle Deck rally cards. He is very fast so the new images will be inserted when available.

Group Chit has been reworked to match the cards.






Date: 08 Aug 13

All soldier Art finished

Now that is a bada$$ update! I don't know of too many other games that would actually release a progress chart like that!! Not too shabby for a game supposedly doomed to failure (according to certain posters). Thanks for the chart, Brad! Gotta love it.

Looks like I'm going to have to get an "UF Wheelbarrow" just to haul the thing about.

Maybe instead of a Up Front bag , it shoulda been a back pack ...

The only other one I can think of offhand is "Machine of Death." And thank you very much for posting the chart, Brad!

I'm a bit confused as to how the Folgore and SS cards moved "backwards" in terms of completeness on the "Artist Selected" and "Artist Contacted" categories. Did you lose the artists who were going to be doing those?

Nope. We are juggling artists around to make delivery faster and some artists have expressed interest in certain nationalities. I hope to have Fologore and the SS artists set today.

Question about the content of the art chart. The soldier cards isn't all the art that's needed in the game.

Do you have knowledge about the progress of the AFV art, Weapon art, card back art, terrain, fire, movement, rally.... card art? Not trying to make a point; sincerely asking.

These are good questions.

All the terrain art is almost all done.

The personality card front and back is done.

The AFV card front and back is 95% settled.

The weapons cards need a little work to make sure the are fully functional.

The Deck card template is done.

The art for fire, movement, rally has not been done yet. An artist that finishes their soldiers soon or already will probably be asked very soon.

Brad

Thanks for the update. Will most of these also be shown before printing do you know? Part of me wants some things not to be shown until we open the box or see it on the store shelves- like the box art, I'd suggest not showing that at all.

Well to be honest a 1.5 inch square picture of a bald hill or kunai field is nothing to get excited for. The art is good, but it is what it is.

So we got an official delay announcement of 5 months for a Nov release. The update seemed to indicate that the delay was only for the artwork. Seems the soldier art shouldn't take that long to finish. But I'm aware that there is a lot of other art that this thread isn't charting for.
