Ordered! Been waiting for this one since I lost a lot of books in a move two years ago.
Mini-rulebook is really handy but need some hard-back action :-)

Pre-ordered the new book, just like every other release before it. I tend to save my army rosters after games to my book shelf and I was packing my stuff today because I'm moving. After throwing away dozens, maybe around hundred rosters I just realised how much I have played this game. It seems there is something special about Battlegroup...

Received my book today. I think it's a good move for the product - I always thought the print in the A5 core rulebook was a bit too small! The 3 new rule tweaks look good. It's especially nice to have all the special rules and campaign-specific scenarios collected together. Plus you get 2 new playsheets with the new rules included, and 2 army lists with a Normandy mini-campaign.

On the other hand, I asked myself if I really needed this £20 book, and of course the answer is no. So it seems I am suffering from an attack of consumerism - have to have the latest thing! But this is my problem, not a fault with the book, which will be especially welcome to those new to the rules. For me getting the new book is confirmation of the extent to which I have 'bought in' to the Battlegroup system - and of course the reason for that is that they are an excellent set of rules.

Well done guys.

Well, I'll have to wait until Xmas day to have a look at my book, which is currently awaiting wrapping. Sounds like it's worth the wait and look forward to have a run out with you soonish Keith (once I can get shot of a damned cold that is!).

I think I know the answer, but is there any project of french translation of the book ? I know french BG users are probably rare...But without a french version, it's understandable. English level here is far from what you can see in german or north europe countries.

thanks

There were various translations made available as PDF when the mini rulebook was issued. Pretty sure French was one of them.
