So I know that they are usually late releasing there product, but this is getting ridicules. The SSU heroes and the airborne transport & walkers are both over a month late. 
What is the hold up? Hurry up!!!! The Ground Attack choppers are due this month, supposedly. I wonder how long it will take them to release that?

 I think this is actually a really annoying problem with FFG, they announce new models way in advance of a release date getting us all excited and then let us down by delivering at least a month late than stated - happens every time.

I agree MM. Having been through the AT43 debacle i was really hoping FFG would pull this game together. I must say though if you compare the two games DT(FFG) is producing new items at a much greater pace than AT43(Rackham) did.

At any rate you shouldn't tell your customers you will deliver a product by a certain date, then turn around and be consistently late. This is bad business and to be honest it is starting to piss me off.

Maybe they are trying to stagger the releases so that there is not a 3 month time period without any releases. the next expansion is not due until october, so if they release the last 3 items this month there will be nothing new until then.

The interesting part is I cannot see any reference to the status of the attack chopper, walker transport chopper and a couple of other SSU units.  Did the boat sink?

I don't think it would matter if the boat sinks, as both are still "at the factory" according to the Upcoming page.

I have seen more than one game die because the company can't produce enough product to hold the interest of the players. May be they will produce Operation Hades by my next birthday in February of 2013?

the intresting part about that is the Hades stuff is now listed as on the boat. The other 2 choppers are listed as at the factory. Is it possible some Hades stuff will be on sale at GenCon in a few weeks.

Looking for possible Ninjas now!

Nope, those two chopper kits aren't anywhere on the upcoming page under "board games" or "miniatures".  Not under "All types" in any category on the Upcoming page.  In fact, all but one of the SSU expansions (tanks & infantry) are "On the boat".  The last is at the printer. 

 

Oh, how amusing, if you simply check the availability directly, they don't show up, but if you check through the DT products page they show up.  By that measure, it seems we are going to get SSU tanks and RG infantry before we get any more helicopter kits.

It's written in the text of each item when you go to its page.
