@Jon it was your email I got, so thank you very much. Ya I have been excited to play it a friend of mine was visiting and saw the box and asked about it.

So, one of the nearby game stores got in a direct retailer shipment of the stuff normally available only on the Modiphius website and posted about it on their Facebook. So I headed over Friday night and picked up a robot core box and a creatures core box. I am very pleased with the quality of these miniatures!

Between these and the Super Mutant faction core, I should be set for AI opponents for a while. At least, this should keep me busy until the faction expansion boxes are available in the US.

So... how long is an order supposed to take to arrive? I ordered the Resin collector's starter set, the supermutant starter box, sanctuary survivors, and hammer. In october.

I've yet to receive anything and every time I've emailed customer service the answer has been "we will ship it as soon as possible"

This information is over a month old so it may not be accurate, but everything I've been reading on the F:WW Facebook page indicates the time tables are still mostly correct.

We're processing orders from our webstore since Sept 15th in the 1st week of December after which we're aiming to switch everything over to stock products so some items will become unavailable at times. We'll likely add an App that lets you add your name to a mailing list alert when it comes back in stock. Currently we're feeding the smaller expansions over to the US distributors so they have their pre-order stock this month (they had 3 of 7 this week, the rest due the week after next. Meanwhile Europe will get a big re-stock of two player starters for distribution first week of Dec, then USA in January. That was supposed to be USA in December too but the tariff war is causing major issues getting ships out of china, and into US ports.

We're aiming to get retailers re-stocks of the faction core sets in February, and the smaller expansions to everyone in February. after which things should settle down to monthly re-stocks of everything leading to wave 2. We've starting talking to several US resin producers to see if they can match the quality from our UK factory. If they can the plan is to start up US production of the faction core sets (which have to go be sea freight and therefore take the longest from the UK) followed by the smaller expansion sets and that will effectively double our capacity and speed up deliveries in to North American retail.


So, January-ish it seems.

Might not be the worst idea to add a couple of weeks on top of that, though. Modiphius seems to be a little optimistic with their estimates.

There's a post by Chris Birch on the Facebook group dated 17th of December which should hold the latest info for Americans, quoted below.

I've heard from the agents and distributors in the USA that the last 3 Fallout: Wasteland Warfare expansions are actually hitting stores this Tuesday. Despite shipping them end of November it turns out they wait two weeks to ensure everyone receives them at the same time. So... if you've been waiting on stocks they should finally be there. Hopefully, that means anyone who's been so patient waiting for their FLGS order to come in will finally get it.

Now for 2019 - we're in testing with a US resin factory to match our UK factory production. That will mean we can double the production volume and US distribution won't have to wait for stock to ship from the UK which causes more delays. Once everything's working we'll be producing stock of both Wave 1 AND Wave 2 sets preparing for launch. We're also gearing up our very own factory to handle more of the unusual terrain sets so the main factories can focus on the big retail sets that everyone wants in volume and we can get more of them in to retail.

Meanwhile we're about to commission the third production run of the Two Player Starter Set and we're also working on some other ideas in China to help us massively improve the availability of each wave going forward. Basically throwing everything and the kitchen sink, and the bath and the kitchen sink from next door, and your cousins bath at it

Left Coast

I just got my two preorders from Miniature Market, which included the Brotherhood core box, and all of the mini-box expansions (except for Boston companions...which I already had...and Sanctuary Hills, which was not available when I pre-ordered). They were delivered at about 6pm yesterday at my office, so literally just opened the boxes. Others on FB have complained about not getting shipping notification for their preorders...but most of them have the Sanctuary Hills box in their order...so that seems to be the one that they are waiting on.

I still have not heard anything about my direct order from Modiphius.com...still waiting on the scenery starter and the wasteland creatures box from them.

Edit: Id like to add the caveat that I placed all of my orders in November 2018, a few weeks apart. So, if I have my stuff, then people who ordered before me should as well, or should at least have their stuff soon.

I don't know about the Wasteland Creatures, but it seems like they're slowly catching up on the Scenery Starter Set. I got the two that were missing from my Vault-Tec bundle the week before Christmas, thus completing my orders from Modiphius (see you for wave 2 ).

It'll be interesting to see how long it takes for a friend who ordered just after the pre-order window closed to get his BoS order. That would have been held up by the starter set restock.

Hi Dakka.

Just wanted to let folks now we are recruiting again for Junior Developers. Details below. Appreciate many of you are US based, so not ideal, but there are a few of you who might be in a position to apply.

Looking to work in the table top industry? Love playing games?

Modiphius is looking for an experienced wargame player to join our development team as Junior Developer.

The role will involve playtesting games in development, giving feedback and ideas to get them ready for production. You will often be working to a tight brief while hitting deadlines to ensure we meet the vision and timeframe for each product.

As well as playtesting and development, you may also be called on to research products and licences, assist at conventions and shows running demos or supporting the stand, proofreading documents and other ad hoc tasks as required.

The ideal candidate would; game on a regular basis with a wide knowledge of both mainstream and niche games, have strong spoken and written English, be able to work in a tight and sometimes hectic team environment, give and receive constructive criticism, ideally have some painting and modelling ability and most importantly be able to work in our central London office.

If you enjoy tinkering with rule sets and games and are looking for a challenging but rewarding role (with a chance to see your name in the credits of commercially released product) send a CV and covering letter, with some examples of your work (we leave it to you to decide what that means) to (jobs@modiphius.com)

...and you will know me by the trail of my lead...

Today's newsletter:

Hey Vault Dwellers are you ready for 2019? We've got a lot of exciting plans so let's get started!


Playtest a new expansion!

We need your help with an exciting new release for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. It requires those who have the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Two Player Starter set and time to get in at least a couple of playtests before the end of the month (though the more the better). There will be more elements to test in February onwards but the critical part is right now. Click here to sign up.


Terrain Competition

Remember our Terrain Competition is still live, more info here. Due to late deliveries in to North American retail of the last three expansions we decided to extend the deadline until January 31st. As a result you may update your submission if you have already submitted and we will take your latest submission as the final. Final entries by 31st Dec will qualify for the Early Bird Judges Award.


Retail Restocks

All final Wave 1 expansions were delivered to distributors who pre-ordered before Christmas. Some distributors didn't order enough and with on-going demand we're re-stocking all of Wave 1 through the Spring.

Right now the Two Player Starter set re-stock has arrived and will be with retailers this month.

UK and EU retailers should get restock of the Super Mutants, Survivors and Brotherhood of Steel Faction Core Sets by the end of January. They're on route to the US and should be available end of February there.

In the meantime we're working on more production of the seven expansions for each faction and will be re-stocking those from February onwards - a couple of sets each month whilst our US factory get's ready.

Webstore

The very last of the delayed Scenic Sets are shipping for those who had to wait for replacement cards - all of those approx 70 outstanding shipments should have gone by end of next week.

You can now buy items in our store from stock, so if something is showing out of stock use the 'Email When Back In Stock' feature. Simply add your email and as soon as new stock arrives you'll be emailed. See the image below for where to click.
We'll be adding an updated Vault Tec bundle with just one Scenic Set and one Creature Core Set to make it easier to produce which will go live once the Scenic set stock is in, and you can expect all the major sets to be restocked over the coming months.

That's it for today, we'll be starting to discuss Wave 2 soon, but in the meantime hope you're enjoying the wasteland!

Chris, Modiphius

Yup, rather than show renders, we wanted to show off the finished goods, hence why they still haven’t been seen in the wild yet.

There will be a few other things between now and wave two to get folks going, but the gap should be smaller than before.

Still being cagey as we tidy up the last threads of wave 1 but hopefully smoother sailing going forward.

You should have them already.

The only thing holding up the last few orders is cards for the scenic sets. If you order didn’t contain them, then drop an email over to support@modiphius.com and Lloyd and our new customer service guy Shaun can find out what’s up.

Yay! Can't wait.

Hang on, this is the Raider wave. I have a better plan than waiting:

Gimme what you got, I'm only gonna count to ten,
Gimme what you got, I won't say it again,
I'm the one with the gun, so I tell you when you're done,
now gimme what you got and I might let you walk away!

Voting is open on the scenery competition Modiphius ran in December and January:

https://www.modiphius.com/design-competition.html

As far as the Raider release wave is concerned, according to the latest newsletter we're still at the "soon" stage:

Hey Vault Dwellers, here at Vault-Tec's London division we are working hard to complete Wave 2 for you - because we wouldn't want the wasteland to be too easy would we now? Devious minds are even now preparing a host of Raiders and other damnable beasties to test your skills! Have no fear though, we've heard they're throwing in a suit of X-01 armour and good ol' Dogmeat in armor to give you a helping hand!

What's that I hear? Cover? Protection? Well of course what settlement would be complete without some military barricades and scratchbuilt barricades! More on that soon...

Yup, still not going to announce what's happening next till we have stock in the warehouse (or at least about to hit) to avoid disappointing folks.

I've had my filthy hands on all of wave 2 (and the other unannounced stuff) and a fair chunk of it is back from the studio painter and is being manufactured.

However, until we know things are all lined up then we are keeping a lid on things.

Appreciate its been a while, but based on the raider minis then trust me its worth it.

Meanwhile, go check out those awesome scenery pieces that players submitted and vote on your favourites.

Well, I'll happily see Boston Survivors back in stock so I can get sent my missing Piper before I worry about anything else. So for me it's not too pressing right now ( I am of course still curious and it goes without saying I wants my Raiders now! ).

But speaking as a continental European for a moment, I'm not sure any new announcement at this time would do me much good until I see what happens with Brexit. I'll be glad once that's over and I can plan purchases from the UK again, one way or another.

They are in stock on the webstore now, but I fully respect using your LGS and keeping it local.

Lets not get started on Brexit... :(

In terms of what's on the horizon, we have something huge announcing at Gama and something else equally huge announcing at Adepticon. One is Fallout related, the other is something else...

We've learned a lot from wave 1, but those lessons take time to kick in for wave 2 and beyond (manufacturing takes longer than any of us want...). We could have put all of wave 2 up for pre-order already, but felt that wasn't doing the community justice, so are holding it back until its ready to ship as announced. In the meanwhile, we have a number of mini projects (internally known as bridge items) that will trickle out as soon as they are ready (usually they involve little to no card stock, which has been one of the major sticking points with wave 1), so you should see at least two if not more products in that line coming along in the near future.

Wave 2 will be on its way as soon as we can, I promise. Once the painted minis are in I might sneak some photos out (finally showing the much teased new Raider sculpts) if I can.

Oh, and my dev team had grown from four of us to ten, so we have a huge influx of new blood and new ability to test and develop so are planning on picking up the pace in the second half of the year all being well.

Oh, that's cool. Good to see this is going well enough to increase the development team.

And little somethings in between larger waves sounds like a good idea.

Oh? Got to shoot a followup mail to your customer service then as that problem was with the Vault-Tec bundle I got direct from Modiphius.

Sadly Fallout isn't really happening around here at the moment. Maybe when the supply issues are sorted out. I'd love to walk into my local store and pick up a little something every now and then. Those conversion ideas need fodder, after all.

Looks nice. I'll take three.

It'll be interesting to get more power armor and see how well converting and mixing and matching will work. Nothing wrong with BoS looking all neat and uniform, but for some my characters I'd like a little more "wasteland style".

Or, I mean, you could just release a modular power armor kit.

Wave 3 sees the first of the missing Power Armour variants and wave 4 will see the second.

Mixing and matching is a tricky one, only due to the in game rules being really hard to show the difference between different pieces.

There is a Power Armour module coming soon for the game that has some of the numerical upgrades, but I don't think it does full mix and match (I've not got it in my hands yet).

Doesn't mean you can't chop and change your minis of course.

As for Power Armour kits... well, not any time soon, but I have had my hands on something that could be viewed as the forerunner of such a kit...

I'm definitely looking forward to those waves. While I like all Fallout power armor just fine, Hellfire and T-51 are the ones I really want.

I'm cool with using the power armor card that reflects the majority of pieces used or, if it's really cobbled together, the weakest armor or even the Raider version we're bound to get. I'm not competitive and if it feels close enough I'm happy.

Don't want to get hopes up yet, as what I have isn't quite consumer ready. Its about 85% good to go, but failed a few key tests for me to be saleable... but yes we are working on things that people have been asking for... take from that what you will
