Post-Kickstarter Update XXVI: Troglodyte and Gnome Brutes

First off Happy New Year Panzerfäustians, we hope you had a great Hognachtswatch and start to 2017.
Unfortunately the last couple of months of 2016 were ones were if it could go wrong, it did go wrong and this put a serious crimp in the ongoing fulfilment of this Kickstarter and our plans for the next. So...
Wave Two:
We are almost, almost there... 
Chris doing his back in is the latest problem we have as he makes the moulds for the metal bits and pieces, but Rob has promised that the remaining three sets of Wave Two (Gnome command, Gnome support and Troglodyte infantry) will be shipping by the middle of this month at the very latest.
We can only offer our sincerest apologies for the delay, as backers of other Kickstarters ourselves we know that delays are frustrating but thank you for sticking with us, we are getting there...
Wave Three:
Once Wave Two is out the door it is all hands to the pump for Wave Three. Lots of work needs to be done for this, but we shall keep you regularly up to date on the ongoing progress. 
First up, here is the 3D sculpt of Wojtek, the Troglodyte Brute, I think you will agree that Herb has done an amazing job here, I can't wait to get my hands on him and painted up...


Secondly, we weren't that happy with the pose or some of the soft detail on the Ghul miniature, the Gnome Brute, so we got Herb to do some re-work on it and he has come up with a much better end product.


The Ghul with the rock is now the Kickstarter exclusive and the regular model will have two sets of arms so you can pose your brute in one of two ways. Great work by Herb.
Future Plans:
It is not secret we have big plans for future Panzerfäuste releases and had planned a mini-campaign this month and a larger one in the summer. Given the unfortunate delays we have experienced (and lessons learned) with this Kickstarter we have decided to focus on getting Wave Three done and dusted before looking to expand the game into new realms with new races. So we are holding off on these for the time being, but make sure you put that money Auntie Mabel gave you for Hognachtswatch away somewhere safe as you will need it later in 2017! :-)
Ok, that is about it, here's to a great 2017 and lots of Hysterical times ahead!
