You can't tease us like that without at least giving us a clue about how we can get one. That's just cruel!

That's the way Rod rolls.

The one Rod showed is an initial print run of a few dozen or so as a test. We're finalizing the paperwork on the main print run of a thousand or so. The paperwork will be in place quickly (mostly done now), but they will need to be shipped from the print shop in Europe to our distribution points (one of which will be FBA -- fulfilled by Amazon -- so you should be able to buy the rulebook directly from Amazon).

We don't know how long the print run will take (not that long); shipping will take longer but we don't know that either. Possibly before Christmas; that would be nice.

Are there plans for it to be available from Europe, as well? Perhaps from Amazon branches in Europe, since you're working with them in the US?

Vic,
A full print run is being arranged now and the book will be available world wide, at least this is the hope. The guys at WGC are working on this now.

Biggest issue is how to get a printed version to people with the lowest cost shipping option. Also, the online version will be updated to the same look.

There are more than 650 army lists. That would require between 5 and 10 printed books, which would cost you on the order of $200 to $400 (between 7 to 14 times the cost of the rulebook). Why do you want printed army lists?

A wall, a big beautiful 650 army list wall!

To keep the Hun out...

... not that there's anything wrong with that.
