Warhammer Historical Wargames is having a 50% off sale on all their rulebooks. Since WHW was rolled into Forge World I have had little interest in ordering expensive books from the UK. I had resigned myself to never having the latest, greatest stuff. The WAB 2.0 fiasco also soured me on WHW. But then they had to go and have a great sale. I took a chance and ordered some stuff. I ordered Over the Top, Waterloo and Kampfgruppe: Normandy. I am impressed with the fact that I ordered on Oct. 6 and received the package today, Oct 17. Not bad from the UK to Arizona in eleven days.
Since I have only just received these tonight I cannot do a proper review. I will do reviews at some point in the future but I can give you my first impressions. First, I am surprised at the size of the Waterloo book. I did not know that this was a nearly 300 page book and hardback. The production quality is extremely high and the full color book is filled with amazing eye-candy. Kampfgruppe Normandy is even bigger checking in at nearly 350 pages. It is also a lavish full-color book. My only criticism is that the hardback is a little thin.
With nearly 900 pages of new rules to digest it will take some time. All three of these books are very inspirational and even if I never play the games I am sure I will get my money's worth out of them. I do plan, however, to play them at least once. Stay tuned for more.
