It has been a while since i have jumped in and needed to clarify a few things but this thread is a great chance to answer a few questions all in one go.

1. Well done for the logic in guessing the release date of the Bloody Omaha book as the 6th June. You have no idea how planning so far ahead and getting dates like that to line up are.

2. The book itself does cover the details and background for both sides fighting on Omaha beach. We have focused on the 29th inf and 352nd inf but have included details for all the other units fighting on the day as well. The book has complete force lists in it and can be used as a stand alone product without FE.

3. Early-War has not been forgotten at all and is infact being worked on right now as several playtest teams and tackling each country. I have not set a release date for the book as our plan for the release of the range is a little different from usual. We will be releasing the entire Early War range in one go with the book and not bringing it out a few codes at a time. Given our hectic Late-War plan keeping us going over the long-term it seemed to make more sense to allow anybody who wanted to play Early-War the option to do so when the book comes out rather than wait a year or more to get certain codes. The book itself will be similar to Africa and Ostfront in format and will contain all the Early-War forces in the one book.

4. Early War codes were withdrawn originally due to production issues as mould age and master quality meant we had to re-make new master figures for everything anyway to keep them in production. This combined with the fact we were missing almost 30 codes from the complete list meant we chose to wait to do the whole range properly at the right time. The Early-War specific range is just under 60 codes and combines with existing Mid-War packs to give you everything you will ever need.

5. The question you will be now asking is how are they going to release the whole Early-War range in one go? The answer is a specific catalogue to allow customers to special order whatever they want. This will be out at the same time as the book and will allow anybody to order whatever they want without stockists having to take the range in their store. This option seemed to make most sense and allows us to supply the full range in one go, elimnate the risk for stores in stocking another 60 codes and despite the work being the same for us having the EW range out in one go allows us to release it without loosing a large block of time from the Late-War schedule.

It is for all of these reasons Early-War has taken a while to get sorted but the end result will be that we are going to give you everything you have asked for in one go and keep up with our ongoing Late-War plans at the same time. Until i see the book and the complete range ready for prodcution i am not going to set a release date but it will not be as far away as years so please be patient as a job done well is worth waiting for.

Rumor has it, very soon. I do not have a date. But it may be this spring. Todd, the head playtester has hinted the EW release will coincide with the new forum switchover.

Tabor,

I paint for models on a 1-1 basis. If you have so many that you will never finish just let me know.

I am sure we can work something out. Smile

I would like to do an early war german, polish, french, british.

In reality I will probably end up doing german and french very quickly. Brits last.

Chris, I have been reading through the GIANT topic on EW for almost an hour. Did you get banned? I dont use foul language but he was being a son of a b%$#. How could you handle him?

Nice come backs by the way! Very Happy

Have a good day!!

Evan

Did I get banned?

Oh last summer they threatened to ban me, but it never went thru. Its hard to ban someone for being correct.

My post back at Todd/thresh1642 was the most blatant over the top personal attack I have every written on a forum and should have gotten me thrown off of FoW. But, everything I said was true and oh so very polite.
