Has anyone seen these yet? I assume better TYW lists with some added rules, personalities and scenarios?

I manage to skip through the army lists on Salute 2015. While books looks nice, I wasn't very impressed by authors' historical research, with plenty of strange units entries.

Whoops…I ordered it figuring the new lists couldn't be worse than the originals….

I received my copy in the mail and it is actually a very good addition.
The book is divided into sections based on the 5 phases of the war plus sections on siege warfare and a mercenary campaign game. Scenarios and commander ratings for each section plus, of course, beautiful photos. You will have ratings for most all of the senior commanders from each army.
Rules adjustments and suggestions for Swedes and tercios among others.
Based on the ratings I suggest you don't get in the way of Pappenheim and his cuirassiers…..
