It seems like ND is doing some advance on other KS. It seems that Rail Raiders Infinite has been delivery (not full, i think...)
Refering SF vs Archon situation (Angry Backer question, then, ND response...):

Talking about interesting questions that won't be answered straight. Can you see the name of the contact for the projects Starfinder (Ninja Division) and Chronicle X (Archon). As we know ND owe thousands of USD to Archon ...
What happened to the miniatures that were in Archon's possession and that were gonna get destroyed if payment was not received ?
Ultimately, I would like to know what the heck is going on ?

Not that you put credibility in my responses, but I am not lying to you:
Starfinder miniatures (resins) were to be manufactured by Archon - who had a great process and speed and cost to get the work done.
We have declared that we hold a debt to Archon and a few other manufacturers as our money problems came to a head. Again... nothing hidden here.
What is the hidden link here? We have production partners all over the globe. Archon has made no secret of this. But it's a manufacturing contract. And we had a lot of work moving there from Relic Knights and Starfinder - again... nothing hidden, we were trying out new processes and partners - and it looked good for a few of our plans.
Archon has a stock of miniatures that we can option to purchase when we move to pay them back for RK starter miniatures to get those into delivery *(one of our upcoming goals) Our standing with Archon is now back in line, we are working together on solutions.
Either company would need to do significant work to use resources designed for/developed by the other.
Yep, that's true, but providing wizkids with all 3d renders that ND has, and Paizo owns, would increase significally the time to release that products. A bit of adaptation need to be done to fit the new casting process, but it is faster than create new ones.
