Could they milk any more publicity out of the same release? Third time this exact same product has been up on the news page.
Fourth item: "Gamer Reports Devil's Charge Useful for Keeping Patio Door Open"

I have been waiting for "official" FoW Battle of the Bulge for as long as I have been playing it.
From what I have seen, the "Fairy Godmother Quartermaster" aspect of FoW is really
out there in this one.
Americans using captured 88s? My gods and little fishes.
They are now apologizing for making us eat our broccoli before we can have ice cream.
I was beginning to suspect that the 98lb weakling Americans who kept getting sand kicked in our faces have been taking Charles Atlas lessons and are shaking the beach with our mighty treads, as we seek out the Hun bully.

Yeah, they posted one for the Products for the release. Which is definately worthy of a post. Then one to preview the release of the book. Then one to go over the design notes.
I think this was posted over a three week period. Preferably the two about the Book should of came together and the product one is the one most people care about if you ask me. I want new shiny stuff.

Can you have Gen. Patton command the 88s? That would be cool.
| John the OFM ||06 Jul 2012 8:05 a.m. PST|
Ivory handled. Only a pimp in a cheap Hamburg house would have pearl handled 88s.

In their defense, at least this one comes with a release date. Or, did the others too?
Heck, they are PAID ADVERTISERS.

These notes should be a design notes should be a hoot! Audie Murphy in he Bulge, captured 88s, ME 262 flying close air support, "Old Blood and Guts" leading the charge to relive Bastone in the front of a column of M4s. Where did they get these ideas? Someone have a pile of old "Sgt Rock" or "The Ghost Tank" lying around?
At least Warlord has a 28mm figure that looks like Sgt Rock

Since Patton designed the last American cavalry saber, he should be able to use that too. Are there rules for swords in
Patton in an M20 with an ivory handled 88 and a saber. I doubt I will have to do any major conversions, since it just means adding a few things to the new BF model.
|irondog||06 Jul 2012 10:28 a.m. PST|
Me Likey! Would the ivory handled 88 be mounted to the M20 or would there be special rules for him to use it like a six shooter?
| John the OFM ||06 Jul 2012 11:31 a.m. PST|
OF COURSE, Patton gets an ROF of 6 with a captured ivory handled 88.
Think of the normal 88 mount on the M20 as more of a holster than anything else.

Russians can't have smoke, but the Germans can use ME-262's as ground attack planes? Hmmmm
|Whiskey51 ||07 Jul 2012 10:17 a.m. PST|
Here is a quote I found about Me 262s in the Bulge.
"On Christmas Eve, the Allies experienced the first ever attack by jet bombers. Sixteen German Me-262's attacked rail yards in an attempt to upset the ability of the Allies to supply themselves. However, without fuel for their armoured vehicles, any success in the air was meaningless."
|Oldgamer56 ||08 Jul 2012 6:53 a.m. PST|
As I remember, deployment of ME-262 was delayed for almost a year by Hitler's insistence that they be fighter-bombers.

It's the Me 262 A-2a dedicated bomber variant for you grognards.
