Warlord is pretty much out of stock already (having sold it at a 50% discount), so until whoever picked up the license announces what they plan to do with it, don't expect much support beyond the last handful of KS backed releases.As some of you have noted, we have passed on the 2000AD licence - however, this does not affect the Kickstarter projects in any way. You will all get the miniatures you are after.
All the miniatures have been sculpted/prototyped, and are now with the casters (Warlord and Ainsty) to be cast up - we are expecting Ainsty to finish the Pat Wagons, well, any time now, and Warlord are predicting early next year to complete their metals.
As soon as the last Pat Wagons are with us, we will do an update that lists everything that has been sent out thus far, so you can run your own checklists and find out if anything has gone awry in the post - anything that has gone missing will be replaced immediately if we have it in stock, or early next year with Warlord's last castings if not.
We have removed the Judge Dredd miniatures from our web site, as we have several out of stock items already. However, they are still available from Warlord, and will continue to be so until the end of November (with a good discount too!)
Not that this should bother most of us, Dredd was already pretty easy to proxy for and the rules were complete, so nothing is stopping anyone from playing.
I wish I could say that this was a shock, but this being Mongoose, the maximize-sales-then-run approach was always on the cards.

Still, as everyone knows, you can never kill Judge Dredd. Hopefully the new license holders will do a good job with it. There are no guarantees that they will use the same rules or continue production of the minis, that would take a new deal between Mongoose and the new licensees, which hasn't been mentioned. We will have to wait and see who is running things.Primarch wrote:Mongoose had a history of poor quality products (their D&D books were awful) and never really supporting their product lines.
Personally, my money is on the guys behind the Batman Minis Game.
