I am happy to report that I have received a production update and more precise timing related to project fulfillment. I know many of you have concerns because of the delay in the project, so hopefully this update will help alleviate some anxiety. I also realize we are a bit slow in providing updates on fulfilment. This has primarily been to ensure that the information we are providing is reliable and we will not continue to miss our commitments. I feel comfortable we are now at a point where we can start sending weekly updates.
Production is still in full swing and is expected to be concluded around the middle of September, with fulfilment starting shortly after. Admittedly, it has required more manpower than originally anticipated. This has primarily been due to the resin production, which was slower and more complicated than anticipated. In total, we are producing 3,108 resin ships and 2,758 metal ships, a total of 5,866 miniatures. Below are some pictures of the Metal Arrow fighter and Resin Cobra fighter so you can be assured miniatures do indeed exist and I will continue to show these miniatures over the coming weeks. Next week I will be able to show you the S'sekai Hydra. Alternative Armies is fulfilling all KS backers and making all ships and flight stands.
Warbler: This cool ship will be added to every package sent out to backers by Alternative Armies as a gift from them! We will also include stats for it in the latest rulebook revision.

Books and Cards
Andrea is going back through the rulebook to do some further revisions and clarifications based on feedback we have received from backers since the last release. It only takes about two weeks to print the books and cards, so we are using all the time we have while waiting for the miniatures to try and get the book and printed material as refined as possible. We will be sending out another updated PDF later this week or early next week.
Templates and tokens
The Templates and tokens are being produced in colored Acrylic by LITKO. I am hoping to have a sample set that I can show off in a few weeks. These templates will be much nicer than the card templates we originally planned and hopefully will be some small consolation for the delays as I am bearing all the cost of this upgrade personally.
STL and 3D print files
For those of you who have backed for the STL files for 3D printing, there are a few ships missing from those uploaded to backerkit. I hope to have those missing files up ASAP as well as some additional designs of ships we were considering to produce, but did not. Hopefully these extra ships will find some use in your games.
Thanks again for you're continued patience and we should be heading to the final stretch over the next couple of months.
