Actually it should be out within 24 hours.

What Dave and I have tried to do this time is find a format we are both happy with so that we can stick with that going forwards. The design stuff done this should make subsequent ones easier to peoduce as we are not going to be reinventing the wheel each timne.

Fantastic!!
That post made my day - great to hear Rich! My debit card has come out of my wallet (along with the bodies of a few long deceased moths) in anticipation.
Cheers

All the best

Bought, downloaded and scanned. Looks excellent.
I particularly liked the encouragement to use the scenarios with other forces for those of us whose armies are built around other campaigns. I'd have done that anyway but the explicit acknowledgement is a nice touch.

I am pleased with the result. As I said before, we wanted to get the look and layout right so we had a template for future supplements (which will make the process quicker). We employed Henry Hyde to do the map which is, I think a nice addition. I really like the cover (although the rights to use that image cost a fortune) which I think is iconic to the campaign.

I anyone would like a more printer friendly version, without the paper edge watermarks I can do that. I won't be removing all the images though, that would be too dull.

John. Agreed in other forces. I also thought that Dave's approach of saying to scatter fields, copses etc on the table was a really good point. It keeps the maps clean and in my epxericne of playing GDA just a light seasoning to represent some break up in terrain is sufficient. Like salt, less is often more.

What I really liked was Dave's "blue box" insights into what was going on. I felt that they brought it all to life.

I hopefully will read it through toninght at home. Looks splendid at a first quick glance in my coffee break this morning.
(Anticipated before reading) congratulations, Dave and Richard
