Hi All

I am within touching distance of completing LW AA.  That WILL be done by the end of this week.  Then I will quickly review the AT and Stug/independent Panzer forces.  As soon as that it complete OB creation for the Axis will commence which will signal the commencement of final pre-press work on Barbarossa. Counter art starts immediately this is completed.
As soon as that is done, we will work on the Soviet OB and then counter art.  Once that is done the game will go to the printers. Pre-Sale will close the day that the game is submitted for press.  At this time Barbarossa Colone’s Edition will be £400 plus VAT if in the EU (so £480 in the EU).

After Barbarossa is shipped we will commence final work on Watchtower. This will involve all mapping and the USN being looked at in depth – probably 2 months work at the minimum.  Counter art etc will commence as soon as possible for this very exciting game.

Following Watchtower will be La Guerra.  It may even come out on the same day (this depends on a number of factors – mostly counter sheet volume in Watchtower.  The idea is to alternate released between the ETO and PTO (even if BTW games are not quite TSWW!).  5 maps will be in this box, along with 4-6 countersheets.  Thanks to Lee Johnston for his help in formulating basic OB works here.

As soon as Dennis can get I Shall Return OB data organised, I will then put that title into the production run as contracted, BUT we want to release Vengeance as soon as possible – it will be a race between those two titles….  Watch this space for more information!!!

Again, thank you all for your support….

Regards

Hi All

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE SUPPORT.  Mare Nostrum boxed edition is down to ONE, REPEAT ONE boxed game left.  Amazing.  That last game will ship with a wee special something… so watch out for that when it arrives. It is I am afraid available on a first come, first served basis – so get in NOW to avoid disappointment.

 

We do however have a few zip lock editions – the same brilliant maps and counters, orders of battle, rules etc as the boxed game (with a sleeve that is a tad too small – so much in the game its hard to judge these things).  These are available in 2 formats:

1. Colonel’s Edition £350 Plus VAT if in the EU (£420) – the usual colonel’s edition with printed rules, charts and OBs.
2. Lieutenant’s Edtion £300 Plus VAT if in the EU (£360) – the usual lieutenant’s edtion with rules, charts and OBs on a DVD or CD ROM.

 

Both ziplock editions include courier shipping world wide.

 

STOCK IS EXTREMELY LIMITED.  BUY NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

 

Thanks again for all the support…

Hi All

As you may have heard I got Flu – the real deal I am afraid.  I am now about to catch up with shipping so my deepest apologies for being late with the games.  Thank you for all the kind words on Facebook…. I really appreciate all the support.

 

Cheers (or more like sniffle)

Hi all

I have completed the review of all LW AA regiments, and am now immersed in the horde of separate AA battalions.  David continues with the Red Air Force!  More soon!

Hi All

I have just handed over all Hungarian data to Cory to check rate the current information.  As soon as I get that back I will plug it into the game.  Next up (and starting tomorrow) are the Romanians… I have a very simple OB for them but will be revising it heavily to bring it to the requisite standard.
Cheers

Hi All

Having completed the German security unit research I have turned my attention to revising and updating the Hungarian Military.  This is a bit of a bind as the data is somewhat contradictory but it looks like I have a good handle on it, and my effort on that should be complete in the next 2-3 days.
After that will be the Romanians who need revision as well… which might take a fortnight.  Not sure till I batter into them… More soon!

BARBAROSSA BOX FRONT2_5 SMALLJBBARBAROSSA BOX FRONT1_22cropJB

 

Hi All
Final development work on Barbarossa is now underway.  We are about to submit the maps for proofing as that will take a bit of time (essentially I may not get the proofs for 2 weeks – and then have a similar period of examination on them).  OB work is well on the way with several areas now ready for counter creation, and other areas needing a bit of additional research to try and nail down the availability of some more obscure assets for both the Germans and the Soviets.  Also we are now working up some of the really minor assets that we do need to show (the various rear area assets).

As soon as I can I will put up art shots.. Available right now for pre-sale.. this small mountain is clumping down the hall…

 

Cheers

John

 

Hi All

 

We have commenced our first sale in over a year to move stock out the door in anticipation of major announcements about Barbarossa.

To entertain you all:

1. Foxhole: £55 plus Vat for the duration of the sale

2. Singapore Generals Edition £300 plus VAT during the Sale

3. Hakka Palle Cols Edition £100 plus VAT during the Sale.

 

On the other hand, as Barbarossa commences some print work this week, several pre-sale modifications have been done:

1. GPW Facebook Bundle deal is now £700 plus VAT.

2. Barbarossa Colonel’s Edition is now £325 plus VAT (the game will be £400 plus VAT minimum on release)

3. Vengeance Colonel’s Edition stays at £300 plus VAT for a little longer…

4. Operation Watchtower (the game AFTER Barbarossa) rises to £300 plus VAT

In all cases these price changes reflect real world print cost inflation driven by Brexit and the collapse in value of Sterling.  To that end we should be putting up ALL prices by between £20 and 55% (product dependent) but so far we are holding as close to existing costs as possible.

We will be putting up Mare Nostrum in a week or twos time to £420 plus VAT to cover major shipping cost increases.

Singapore and Hakkaa Paalle after the sale will also increase – probably to £374, then £335 and then £300 for the Gen/Co/Lts editions of Singapore and a flat rate £10 rise on Hakka Paalle Gen/Col/Lts editions. At the moment Ziplock games and QM editions are not affected as the Post Office has not pushed up prices.

Sorry – but there is nothing we can do about this. If you live in the UK and are unhappy, please feel free to complain to your MPs for lying to you about the reality of Brexit.
