Great Northern War Compendium Book Update

Post by Cheriton » Tue Dec 08, 2015 8:16 pm

Hello all:

Received this email:
The Great Northern War Compendium has finally finished pre-press and is ready for printing. The printing and shipping process will take several weeks. The books will be available in early February and the two volume set will retail for $ 125.00 plus shipping. The books total over 600 pages in full color and are hardbound. They will be available on the company website for US customers and on Amazon.com for international customers and US customers who prefer Amazon. There will be an ability to pre-order and a follow up email will provide details.
$125.00 plus shipping
:shock:

OTOH -
over 600 pages in full color and are hardbound
softens the shock decidedly (but surely not 600 colour plates?) :lol:

Looking forward to hearing more...

Cheriton

PS - Didn't notice any mention of this update, sorry if it's old news.

Works out to around £45 a book which isn't exorbitant if it's packed with worthwhile content...

Good to know that the book is finally out for sale.
Hope they sell it not only from their Company.
Thank for sharing.

Amazing! :shock:

Where has all this information been lurking these many decades?

Never mind, can hardly wait. :D

My account was debited the day I ordered them - sometime in February...

I think my copies are coming by carrier pigeon (or possibly Dodo...)
