It has been announced it will be shipped somewhere in the last quarter of this year.

This is really getting out of hand, since April of 2018, Heroes of Stalingrad was on kickstarter originally set to be delivered in December 2018, then January 2019 the first P500 was introduced (my order got screwed up), then April 2019, the HOBR pre order bundle was introduced, now in June 2019 the second P500 is introduced. I know they have had financial troubles but they are taking our money and we are not getting anything in return but promises and why are they introducing all this new stuff when they haven't delivered on the HOS kickstarter yet. In my opinion this is not good business practice, I for one will not be spending for any more DP products that are not readably available.

Even with all their financial issues, DPG has delivered on everything. Including Age of Towers, HoBR original print run, and the Heroes of Normandie Tactical Card Game. HoS was the last of the delayed products from 2018. An announcement was made very early this year that HoS would be delivered around September. So far that is on track.

You are talking about the Bad Moon and Battleground set preorder, right?


Those items haven't shipped from the factory yet.

I understand your frustration at seeing new products go up for pre-order when you haven't received your earlier order yet.


However, the manufacturing and shipping process takes a very long time. Once DPG finalizes the artwork for a pre-order, do you expect them to sit on their hands for a year while things get produced? It's in everyone's best interest that they start working on the next product while the manufacturers do their part of the process.

Any update on this?? We are now hitting February and not a word.

Not happy!!!


“For the Lion!”

I agree with the other posters. I do not know all the details of why the pre-release has been delayed.

The company has made no updates as to why there is such a long delay. The printing process may take a long time. Perhaps no news is better than (potentially) admitting fault and losing sales?


I appreciate any news over no news.


Wa wa whee wa. King in the castle. King in the castle.

Concerning the production of the HoBr extension elements, everything is ready but we are finishing the dispatch of Heroes of Stalingrad and so we will have to be patient.

We will deliver everyone, don't worry.


Alors oui je fait des fautes d’orthographes mais il faut bien que je m’exprime non ?

Thanks yann for this news.


Please take you time to sort the shipping of HoS out before starting with this.


I'd rather wait a couple of months than you doing all things at the same time and people don't get their stuff or everything gets mixed up (there is also the HoN p500 to deal with)


When I get those 2 in 2020 I will be happy.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [21/02/2020] à 00:02

I contacted dpg about this in mid january. The reply that i got simply stated "unhappily a few months". No mention of it being ready to go whatsoever. Im leaving it til its been 12 months, then will be requesting a full refund.

Keep in mind that thanks to the virus quarantine in China, all the board game manufacturing companies have been shut down since the Lunar New Year. Word has come out to a few companies that things should start up in a couple of weeks, but given the millions under quarantine, the tens of thousands of people sick and the thousands dead that it will likely be a while before things are back to normal.


DPG is hardly the only company to see things slip. I have gotten updates from several KS projects things are delayed and other game publishers have alerted buyers to the issue.


When the manufacturers come back online, board games may not bee the priority product to make. Nearly all of the companies that print board games print other things as well. Board games, in fact, are usually printed with the "excess capacity" of these manufacturers between more serious projects.


TL;DR: Have some sympathy for the situation in China.


Before someone asks: HoS is (as far as I know) already shipped. But new HoBR product is a different story.

It is even an item in the news. Since loads of things are being manufactured in China, several shops now see their stocks dwindle and even have quite a few empty shelves in the stores as NOTHING comes through out of China now.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [22/02/2020] à 02:02

While what is going on now in China is troubling, please remember that if the project was on time none of this would matter. It was to ship to customers in January missing the virus and Chinese new year. Devil Pig has consistently missed their delivery dates which is very troubling.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [22/02/2020] à 04:45

Of coarse the items haven't shipped yet. Next it will be the ink isn't sticking to the cardboard, the boat is sailing backwards, and the postage labels are on upside down. Blaming China or some other "unforeseen" delay for every product release is unacceptable. Almost every product has been delayed and some excuse given. Equally annoying is reading how some people on here can continuously defend the delays over and over again.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [22/02/2020] à 15:42

Yeah, when they told me it would be months, coronavirus hadnt even stsrted to be a thing. If it actually surfaces this yesr ill be amazed. Ive got absolutely zero hope of seeing heroes of valedor within next couple of years.

I know its difficult but everyone should speak with their wallets. Demand your money back, and if and when they ever release it, buy it at retail


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [23/02/2020] à 22:02

I think the sentiment here is a little misguided.


Everything got delayed when one of the two designers/owners had to leave to company because he wasn't able to do his job anymore and had been falling behind for months without telling anyone.


I think a bit more information from DPG would help.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [01/04/2020] à 11:19

So we are now an entire year since paying, with absolutely no update. I'll give it til the end of the day, then im reporting it to my bank as a fraudulent transaction.


HOBR Pre Order Bundle Posted on [26/04/2020] à 09:12

I'm a little bummed that I didn't even hear that they were doing a P500 for HoBR. I love the system, and would have been all over that.


However, since they finally did deliver on HoS, I have faith that they are committed to getting everything out…eventually.


Is it possible to still get in on the new HoBR stuff? Will it be available in the shop?
