Does anyone know for how long Vanguard will still be in beta?
Is there any word on when the release should be?

I thought it was supposed to be in October? So, as it is Mantic, January.

Last I heard, they were thinking that they might be getting the Kickstarter pledges shipping in late September - a month earlier than planned. (Whether that happens...?)


So, backers getting their pledges in late October probably means that November is actually what the folks at Mantic were looking at for general release....

I can still remember when a box of 30 Space Marines was $30.00. Now THAT'S old school! In fact, I started playing in the Rogue Trader days...yes, I am that old. Played Warhammer Fantasy for years before Rogue Trader even came out...

We received the final book to proof read. And, all I can say is...WOW! The book looks fantastic. Lots of new artwork and pictures. It will be headed to the printers VERY soon, and should be out in September. That's out to everyone in September!

My sad, sad prediction about the much vaunted Giant....

My wife will have it assembled and partially painted on the day it comes in, even before I get home.

Latest word is that Vanguard will hit their warehouse on 15 October, and that KS shipping will be handled by Hallowe'en.

The Auld Grump - I have a bigger grain of salt about the latter claim than the former....

All components will be in before the 15th. There’s some prep to do first before it goes out.

Hi Matt,

Is there a chance that us backers might get a pdf of the final rulebook before that maybe ?

Finally got mine, lots of stuff in the package ^__^

Nothing seems to be missing but I will have to finish unpacking all the warbands, however I got two blaines, and I don't remember ordering a second one
