The humans are "less interesting" but I'd wager the physical models will be more interesting when seen in the flesh.

In the end I didn't join in again, the long wait time* and cost kind of made me rethink. It's a fantastic deal, but I think picking up a few when they hit the market will be better for me than getting a truck load of which only a couple will ever likely get built.
Plus in two years time or so I'd be more happy having my DoK army built up than a big load of suddenly appearing models.



*and I totally understand why its a long wait and don't think its an unreasonable time frame. It's just not the KS for me at this stage even though if it works and comes to market I know I will be getting several of those big machines!

I see that they managed to pull quite a fair bit at the end:


I look forward to seeing this hit retail in a year or two

Sorry to bump a relatively old thread, but maybe it saves someone from burning more money in the Pledge Manager.

Steamforged is now accused by several people in Brasil, Italy, Spain and the UK of just straight up not honoring Dark Souls pledges because of bogus "delivery issues".

Or simply a screw up with addresses ?

with their shippers saying we've tried to deliver and it doesn't exist/nobody's in to take delivery

but even if this is the case the appropriate response would be a full refund of whatever the backer spent not a coupon (especially in the EU where it is flat out illegal, a company has to either deliver however many attempts it takes or refund in full)

No, it's choosing not to deliver, because it is difficult (expensive), and choosing not to refund.

I'm even more sure waiting for retail is the answer.

That email doesn't make any sense.

First up they say they've got the product, but the only issue is shipping price, yet they are able to give store discount and void a large chunk of profits and income, per customer, rather than pay for shipping again. So clearly they have money (or potential to burn money) yet don't want to ship?

They also make no attempt to confirm address for re-delivery, plus every delivery service I know of pretty much attempts at least two or three times and then houses the product at the local depo long before sending it back undelivered.

Plus not even accepting to cover the entire product cost is very scammy. It does not speak well of the company if they are trying this kind of tactic. :(

And yeah as said its pretty much illegal to just cancel an order and not make a full refund. The most they might be able to withhold on a refund is the postage charge; however all the product should be refundable.

If it were just to Italy or Russia, countries with some known postal problems, it might be linked to that, but if its to the UK and other generally safe shipping locations then it should be working as normal (and my understanding is some things like Russia and the like its more that customs holds package for AGES before processing

Update - they've reopened their pledge manager following delays to launch (normal big KS delays plus Corona related delays). They've also added details on their shipping including an opt-in split shipping for some tiers (which comes with an increased cost).

There's also an update on the website about some of their manufacture and some behind the scenes details of that

At this point I am unsure why people still give them money.

So as they now appear to be shipping and arriving who was able to take part and who got stuff and what's it like - photos - details - sneak peaks the lot.

I honestly don't need boardgame pieces to look stellar, so I may pickup the core if gameplay reviews are good. But that won't happen until after the pandemic.
