STOP THE PRESSES!

Post by quindia » Sat Oct 24, 2009 3:10 am

Well, actually, start the presses - I just received the proofs today and they look fantastic! It really turned out great. If all goes well, we should go to print next week!

R2E RULES

Post by Churchill » Sun Oct 25, 2009 12:37 am

Hi Barry & Clarance,

Excellent news and the proofs look very impressive with lots of pretty photo's and tables.My only hope is unlike BLB these rules go into greater explaination of how the rules work as BLB were sadly lacking in this department.
I don't mean to put down all the work that either Barry or Clarance have done with both sets of rules, but many of us were confused with different issues concerning BLB and a lot of questions had to be asked and explained before things clicked into place.
I know some people will have playtested these rules already, but I have not heard any comments from them on how they play, how realistic they are to the napoleonic period and how fast turn wise the rules work.
I will be buying them and I hope they sell well as profits will help future productions.
Hats off to the both of you for what you've done so far :wink:

Kind Regards...............Ray.

Hi Churchill...

Not only are there more explanations, there is a whole chapter dedicated to a battle report with a step by step account of the action and application of the rules!

Clarence,

I do sincerely hope that you find the contact lense that you are searching for in the second image.

Seriously though, the whole thing looks great.

Warmest regards,

Jim

Well folks I don't think you're going to haver to wait too much longer. My understanding is that they book will actually be printed this week and should be available to preorder by the weekend for shipping very shortly after that. It has to be trucked from the south coast up to Scotland but we'll be ready to ship pretty much immediately. The shop should open for preorder Monday latest but probably before that...
