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

Not that excited. I don't have much interest in the Pacific.
Maybe I only buy the book to keep my collection complete.

Me too - was hoping for NORTHAG, but having looked in the Tobruk book and seen the 'upcoming' list - I'm not sure I want to get another 6 books of which I might only play one, to get to the book I would like.

Well anything modern wouldnt feature in a WW2 release schedule anyway... it would be a seperate game. Though im not entirely sure the 'list' (which just says there will be a second Africa book if you are talking of the Tobruk intro) in Tobruk is a list... So Im not sure what the six books you are thinking of are... as we dont have six planned as yet. If you mean the recent list of possible titles (Market-Garden, Bagration, Konrad, Tunisia Pacific/Burma, etc) then none are as yet fixed... alot depends on what we decide we want to play next... which we will likely know after our all staff meeting (yep all three of us!) after Salute.

But you cant please everyone with every book and I dont think we will try to. People have different tastes and interests. Just go with what interests you. :thumbsup:

Japs!very interesting! I will buy it!
i have still to make my choice about which my second setting would be: desert / winter european / Burma / pacific islands. But would not be for the next 2 years at least. I would concentrate my focus on european terrain for the time being.

But definitely would buy all the books. I´m of course cheering for a new book on Holland-Germany 44-45 British-Canadian offensives.

Well crud buckets! Since all I've got is Germans, and all the other locals have American and Commonwealth forces that are pretty much ready for the Pacific use, guess that means I've got to start up a Japanese force from scratch. Darn... :yahoo:

Looks like a certain question has been answered for me as a WWII gamer...

I have Japanese & USMC 1943 (yes in 15mm) which will upgrade easily for '44 onwards. They are painted so not too much of an effort. Terrain will be the sticking point

Fair enough Piers! It's labelled as 'still to come' which I assumed was a 'sneak peek' at the project plan. I'll still agree that I think these are the best WW2 rules by far, but like any overkeen fanboy I was hoping my personal favourite would be next on the list - mainly because I think any of the other rulesets would be a disappointment!
