Prof.-- Plastic Soldier Co. will announce here when you can pre-order the book. I'd wager it will be soon!

Spring Awakening :yahoo:

Will this touch on the siege and defence of Budapest as well or is that too much of a stretch?

Bring it on.
It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.

OK, I am watching, but I am not too internet savvy so I hope I don't miss it. I heard that PSC sometimes throws in a a free sprue or box with pre-orders. I'm not sure if that is true or not, but I am new to BG and starting from scratch building my 1/72 ww2 forces so every bit helps.

New book usually comes with a free sprue of this or that (though you can always ask to have it changed to a different one if you are not in the need for that model/scale) and a prize draw.

Well, if you are proof reading - Flieger Division pic - the grammar of the first line is wrong "The following special rule apply to an Fleiger Division". Should be ""The following special rules apply to a Fleiger Division".

Greetings

The German is 'Flieger' not 'Fleiger' - the latter word does not exist as far as I know. So the name of the formation is Flieger-Division.7.

I'm just wondering about the italians in this. Will there be a high point cost for wine and pizza?

I'm definitely looking forward to fielding Italians - preferably in Italian East Africa: Savoia grenadiers, bersaglieri battalion Arfrica, alpini, colonial troops, cavalry and M11/39s.

I'm looking forward to this supplement. I remember watching "Rat Patrol" when i was a kid. Loved the whole desert world war 2 stuff, it's what drew my interest into war gaming in later years.
