Latest Updates from Our Project:

Small Update and UKGE News
3 days ago – Sun, Jul 25, 2021 at 01:02:17 AM

Good morning, afternoon and evening Hog fans!

Production Update:

The updated schedule for Hogs from Eastar has final production finish in August so we are still on track to start fulfilment in September and run it into October where necessary. We are working hard our end to make sure all the components are as good as they can be. 

Tutorial Mode:

Paul and I have decided to add a set of Tutorial Cards to the Core Pledge of the game, which takes players through the first few rounds of the game, with simple instructions and suggestions. This is something that all pledge levels will get, hopefully it makes the game a little easier to sink your teeth into straight away!

UKGE:

We are attending UKGE this year- come find Paul and I at Stand 2-477 where we will be running the Stone Sword Games stand. It will be great to say hello to more Hog fans!

Hogs Of War Production and Shipping Update: June.
about 1 month ago – Sat, Jun 19, 2021 at 04:46:45 AM

Good morning, afternoon and evening Hog fans! 

A long two-parter update today, announcing a small delay to fulfilment and dealing with a scary issue that has been in the news a lot recently. 

Big Hog, Little Hog, Tiny Airship

Rather inexplicably our manufacturer shrunk the final size of the Airship, which was picked up on during the proofing process (see original size left in image below). Paul and I have chalked it up to an honest mistake but obviously this has impacted the estimated completion date of the miniatures mould beyond our control (which then kicks everything else back).

To help compensate for the delay, we are working with the manufacturer to speed up other background processes in Hog's production. Other components, like the Dice, have arrived as samples looking fantastic and exactly what was envisaged from the start. 

The new completion date for  the miniatures being fully cast is August. We are a bit shocked at this change, but ultimately there's nothing we can do to speed it up without jeopardising the final quality of the product. It will mean that the fulfilment process is delayed beyond our July/August goal of the last few months- we are looking at August for Asia, Australia and New Zealand- and September for UK, Europe and North America. 

Freight Costs

You may have noticed that freight costs are rocketing up beyond the substantial rise they already saw in 2020. There has been a lot of media coverage of this issue, including the Suez blockage and a potential trade war between the East and West. 

This has made the process of getting a boat booked and costed incredibly hard our end, and we might be seeing a lot of the profit from this project evaporate in front of our eyes. The game was well budgeted , so we are very sure that although the project will cost Paul and I more to ship, it won't slip into the red- as a lot of Kickstarter projects have done recently. 

Ultimately, Stone Sword Games is committed to shipping your game and the hope is that the production delay will give freight costs time to stabilise and get back to more reasonable rates.

The Red Bacon

As promised, here is the Red Bacon in all his glory! This is the free miniature sculpt that Paul and I worked to put into the final copy of the game as we thought he was too cool to skip. 

As always, warmest regards,
