Looks good to me!

Can't wait to get it!

Well it looks lovely but being a 180 page hardback probably will keep me off buying it. Quite why we have this current fad for expensive and difficult to handle rulebooks is beyond me, of course others will disagree of course. Still if it comes in at the £15.00 GBP-20 mark I'll maybe get a copy.

Can you summarise the differences between BLB3 and BLB2?

jocknroll Supporting Member of TMP03 Dec 2017 2:08 p.m. PST

I suggest you keep reading the blog Jim. All data will be there

Will do Barry.

Do the rules still employ simultaneous movement?

VicCina Supporting Member of TMP05 Dec 2017 9:59 p.m. PST

Will there be a .pdf version and any idea on the cost for the hardback book?

jocknroll Supporting Member of TMP06 Dec 2017 10:06 a.m. PST

Yes to simultaneous movement as per BLB1 & 2. Order markers prevent any confusion.
pdf version not immediately but at some point.

Cost no idea yet until we get all the print estimates. We'll try and keep it in the range band typical for these kind of publications though

More on the rules in another blog post here today

Do the Ottomans get a mention ??? :-)

KhivaJoe Inactive Member11 Dec 2017 5:13 a.m. PST

Found the answer ..cannot wait for the supplement!!!

jocknroll Supporting Member of TMP11 Dec 2017 9:24 a.m. PST

Not only do they get a supplement KhivaJoe but we'll have a rather large range of Ottomans starting to appear early in the New Year from Warfare Miniatures.

Here is more info on the book with a bit of detail on some of the rule mechanism changes

For those interested on where we are up to on The War of Three Kings we are in dialogue with various printers right now so should have a release schedule available soon.
