Warhammer Historical Games

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.

Very cool.. I'm interested to hear more about Kampfgruppe Normandy. Sounds like it should be an interesting book.

The book is so pretty I can't take my eyes off of it. It will be days before I can read a word of it.
