UPDATED: Shipping Updates - Grognard Command and Eisenkern Early January
Despite our best efforts to add a lot of cushion to the schedule, we are running a bit late with our next releases the Grognard Command and Heavy Support and the Eisenkern Stormtroopers.
Ports around the world are moving at a glacial pace still from a combination of the pandemic and the resulting economic downturn. Each port is slow, so these container ships that basically move between them in a constant connect-the-dots way have their schedules adjusted like a domino effect. One port ads 2 days, the next one ads 1, the next one ads 3 and all of a sudden you're weeks behind.
It feels a bit like this to be honest.
There is also a dearth of container space and we've had our shipments move from one line to another in a search for space.
Happily, the freight companies say they see some light at the end of the tunnel and things are moving back toward more normal operations. Yay 2021 you can't come fast enough!
On top of all this, we seem to be becoming very popular! And we're selling way more sets way quicker (yay us!) So while we bring out new releases we are starting to need restocks of our previous sets. So we are going to update each product page with availability and restock timing so you know what can ship immediately and what will be a little slower.
To make it all easier, we're going to use this page as a handy, updated spot to have everything all in one place. The dates after each entry is when it was last updated with new information. If a set isn't listed, stock levels are full. Here we go:
Eisenkern and Grognard Command: boats dock in the UK (January 11) and US (January 5) (expect shipping about a week after this although ports are REALLY slow!). AU stock is in house and will start to go out this week (Updated: 01/04/21)
French Resistance and British Riflemen: UK port arrival Feb 2, US port arrival Feb 5, AU port arrival Jan 15 - likely to shift given port delays (Updated: 01/04/21)
Raumjäger Restock: same dates as Eisenkern/Grognard Command and Heavy Support (Updated: 01/04/21)
Skeleton Restock: same dates as Eisenkern/Grognard Command and Heavy Support (Updated: 01/04/21)
Halflings Restock UK: sames dates as Eisenkern/Grognard Command and Heavy Support (Updated: 01/04/21)
Les Grognard Restock: same date as French Resistance although we may be air-lifting some in prior to that date (Updated 01/04/21 - we are planning an air shipment to the UK and US now) We can't keep these in stock!
WW1 German Restock in UK: same date as Eisenkern/Grognard Command and Heavy Support (Updated: 01/04/21)
Right now the Lizardmen and Secret Napoleonic Set #2 are finished and getting boxed and preparing to ship out. We will also be shipping more restocks with these.
WW1 French are in file prep going to tooling immediately upon layout.
Boxers, Goblins, and a secret Death Fields set are right on their heels.
Then we have another Death Fields, a round of historical sets, and Iron-Core Panzerjägers!
