Well, 2019 is nearly gone and Forged in Battle still doesn't have this line for sale on their website. Can we declare them vaporware yet?

I received my figures from the Kickstarter months ago. (Very nice early Byzantines BTW). Not sure why they have not put the figures on the website yet. Sure;y they'd sell well.

The previous W&E kickstarters have not gone on general sale for quite some time after the backers have received their purchases.
After fulfilling a lot of bulk orders, they may need some time to build up stock.

I emailed them inquiring about their Byzantine ranges and they replied that they would be available in April of 2020.

They started sending out the kickstarter orders about 3 or 4 months ago – I have received my first one. The second one has been outstanding for several months but they have kept me informed.

It seems that the large size of the orders has taken them a bit by surprise. The figures that I received have been excellent.

I believe that the range will be available for Salute 2020, or earlier if possible.

I only received my order last week -- I expect they are still fulfilling orders.

They are indeed. Also those who subscribed to the Kickstarter can still put in additional orders at the Kickstarter much reduced prices.
I was told April before general release.

From the Kickstarter updates:

Good morning, its Wendy here today! Andy has been suffering with broken ribs, he came off his mountain bike a few weeks ago but I'm pleased to report, he's finally on the mend.

Many thanks for placing your substantial orders, you are obviously loving the range! We are still awaiting orders from some of you, hence we have decided to keep the webstore open for a while longer. If you have not yet placed your order, we would be grateful if you could please do so as soon as possible. If we have already placed or received your order, the good news is, you can still place additional orders, at the same Kickstarter prices whilst the secret section of the store stays live. However, please be aware we cannot treat Kickstarter orders like a normal customer order coming in. Kickstarter orders for this range are in a queue, as stock requirement is so high. As soon as we replenish stock on all the product codes, its gone again!

Hence, it's taking us time to get through the Kickstarter orders. In most cases, folks have ordered BIG! Looking at where we are at present, we are currently half way through fulfilment. Due to juggling other direct customer orders plus trade orders, at our busiest time of the year, fulfilment will definately continue into the new year, we will not be done by Christmas as we had hoped. We had no way of telling exactly how long fulfilment would take, and how big your orders would be. You are obviously loving the new range, you have ordered so much of it, above and beyond your original pledges. Thank you for your continued support and also for the phenominal feedback from those receiving orders already.

I received my large order this past summer. Much of it is painted, great figures. I have mixed in nicely with Old Glory.
Can't wait for their next kickstarter.

I got my order three weeks ago. Very happy.

I can confirm the Dark Ages figures are stunning! Saxons, Vikings and Normans for me on the Kickstarter, I do love War and Empire figures
