Punic Wars to arrive early August
« on: June 18, 2009, 04:06:09 PM »
Hi All,

A stumble in printing has the Punic Wars arriving in early August instead of in July as expected.  Furthermore, FedEx rates have gone up so it's just too expensive for me to ship any cases here by air, so preorders (and Historicon customers) will have to wait until August.  That will still be a month or so before they hit stores, since distribution always takes a while.

Best,
Chad

I've already forgot about them. It'll be a cool surprise when they arrive! I understand why people want more human factions for BG:FW, but I think the clamor will calm down once PW shows up. Me, I'm still waiting for the Dark Elves... 8)

Can't say I'd forgotten about them (how is that even possible? :o ) but grateful for the update - no worries about the delay, these things happen.

Cheers Chad!

You don't want to know how many times I thought that while working on the PW.


If it weren’t for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

What, you want to know what my favorite piece was to create?

Hmmm....

I think my favorite piece was the Iberian Infantry. To be honest, some of the art came out so so, (I'm my worst critic), but some of it came out better than I expected.

The Equites and Rookie Principes came out pretty good too.

Yay! It's cool getting the "behind the scenes" info, especially when the product gets held up.

Very cool.  8)

Did they actually go into battle with Woks strapped to their chests?

Too funny Rush! I spose they had their own Erma Bombeck (If life gives you lemons...). If the battle gets hot, make dinner!

No no no. They aren't woks. They are miniaturized, chest-mounted snow saucers. This way they can pretend they are penguins when they go sledding!  :D
