@Dave
Sorry I missed this question! I have a pretty full release schedule at this point, hopefully I will get to them eventually.

@Rumors-of-Wars
They were delayed by a combination of things: Origins, Gencon, and all the little wheels needed for the production molds. There are only 4 little wheels in the master, so it has to be spun quite a bit to get enough wheels for the production molds. That being said, I believe many of the production molds are finished, but as my caster is going to Gencon, I don't expect to get the first castings till mid-August.

Nearly all the casting is complete, just one mold left to be made, so things are looking good for an early September release!

They are en route to me right now, so they should be up in the store with pics on Thursday.

Well, finally managed to take some pics, they they are not great. I will be getting them painted before the "official" announcement of availability, but I think i will have a go at them in the meantime. Its pretty hard to get good shots of them unpainted, especially with my crappy camera.

I have left the rest of the packs available, but the Growler IFV is not yet up for sale. I noticed an issue with some of the castings that has to be addressed, hopefully I should have the new castings in a week or so and it should be back on the site. Official announcement of sale should be in about a month, or whenever the painter finishes with them.

Still have to get a land transporter pic, but the wheels aren't dry yet!

Wow.

I think I've decided I don't really need to eat this week. Or do I?

The wheels look like they cast very well, really like the landhawk.

Growler is a slightly unfortunate name, in the UK at least. Suppress the enemy -- pound thier growlers! ::)

Wow...the UK slang meaning for growler is unfortunate!

The wheels actually cast perfectly. The only thing that was some trouble were the connectors for the wheels on the hull, as sometimes they do not fill completely. It isn't much of an aesthetic issue though, as their is still more than enough contact area for the wheel to stick, and the wheel covers that part anyway.

I will be providing my tidbits of advice on glueing the wheels on to all who order...there was much cursing that first night.
