Email communication was always iffy with them. Franck announced, later last year, they were hiring a sculptor to redo all the figures that were originally done for the kickstarter. huh?

I thought that sounded like asking for sure "over-reach" and financial chaos…frown Fortunately I got several 100s of Prussian infantry in-hand early on. However I saved a bunch of investment points for "later" cavalry releases.

Last I heard, late 2016, two hussar regiments were shipping in a couple of weeks, never heard anymore, no responses to date.

PS "Three Armies" is looking a good alternative so far.

I know some have gotten the hussar.

Yes I had heard that as well, some TMP members saying so directly here.

But myself, and others, have had "hit and miss"…mostly miss… communication with FG since sometime in 2015.

I put a nice sum of money into this and got my Infantry figures, but I never got the Hussar figures that were due to me based on my level of pledge.

In the interim, they started producing ACW and FPW figures and it really ticked me off when they did this as I suspect that some of the funds from the Indigogo crowd funding were diverted into these other ranges, leaving their Napoleonic investors on the outside

I can't help but get the feeling, observing from the outside for years, that the level of knavery and incoherence on Kickstarter is going to ruin it for the rest of the wannabes and entrepreneurs by scaring off the money.

Sounds like I have to boycott the company. Can't support questionable/scaming companies.

Those hussars look very good. But I would never have bought into a range that is so incomplete. But now I won't by no matter what.

I'll have to take a look at three armies. The site is extremely slow. And don't work at all on my phone.

We'll have hope they reach the cavalry stage…very best of luck to them.

And this is why I decided to do my own 1806 range.

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP20 Jun 2017 12:38 p.m. PST

Well the battalion packs are very reasonable. I'll have to try one. But I'm holding back until the range is more complete. I hope it goes well.
