'The Battle for Primosole Bridge' Kickstarter update #8

Well, here we are...arriving at the first of our 'final times'...the last time we do a particular activity in prep for the books production ...

The final (planned!!) miniatures required for the book have been finished. You can see a small selection of them above being lovingly bubble wrapped for their jetsetting holiday over to Australia for photography!
It's been pretty intense fitting in the painting of these, but we wanted the best job possible of course for the book for you. And we are very proud to say some our closest working relationships with Figure manufacturers have resulted in having some figures that are as yet unreleased and getting their first showing in our book....check out some spoilers in the pic above....!

Within the book we have been doing the seemingly endless task of receiving back edits to be made...dutifully reworking text, making corrections  We've also been working on- and finally resolved- the revolutionary way of listing units in multi-scenario selectors within the book, saving 20 pages of almost identical selectors! These points and the remainder of the work we've been doing around the editing has been cutting fat and leaving just the great content for you.

In regard to the free gifts for the book Backers;


STLs have been sent within emails to all the Kickstarter backers (if you didn't get the email let us know at: https://www.valhallagames.net/index.php/contact), along with the contact details for WOW Buildings in case there are technical questions or other queries regarding the files.

STLs for the pre-order customers should be sent in the next 24 hours

The Final wargames Atlantic sprue numbers have gone to them for production and supply of the sprues to us.

In other news; while continuing his work on the (currently unrevealed) realistic scale battle board that will provide photos for the book ( and hopefully a board with which to attend some wargames shows/events sometime in our future!) Rex decided he needed some blockhouses and barricades. Having designed them for 3D printing, Rex has decided decided to share them here with you..... for free!;

So follow the link and print some off ( or get someone to do it for you and buy them a beer!) and get yourself set up for your scenarios when you receive your book!

In the 'background' but very much at the forefront of our minds and driving our timelines, we've been refreshing our quotes and checking lead-time with the printers.

Spread the word: pre-orders still open ( despite the free STL and sprue deal having finished due to our deadlines for those suppliers-apologies!), so if you want a copy, reach out and we will let you know how you can  place your order.!


There's a couple of weeks of hard work and immersion in the written content for the book as final editing is ongoing. Following that we have final photography and working through further logistical demands. Thanks for staying there with us in this journey- some of this stuff isn't the sexy/glamourous/exciting news to show and tell you about...BUT it is essential work to add polish to this production, and we hope in some small way you enjoy hearing about this in order to feel informed and reassured of the professional work going into the book.

Thank you and we will update you again in a couple of weeks time with another update! 

Regards, 

Dan and Rex

Podcast EP24: A chat with Jon Russell.

In this bumper episode, we are joined by Jon Russell of Warlord Games fame. In addition to his dedicated work for Warlord, Jon is a multifaceted wargamer and also veteran of many years service.

In this episode we spend time learning about Jon's wargaming pedigree, before learning more about his role at Warlord, the writing of 'Bolt Action: Korea', and Jon shares with us what he can about what Bolt Action V3 might look like, and the 'Raiders Attack!' Supplement that still has much life left in it.

All this plus Warlord event support, balance in tournaments and other definitely non-controversial(!), highly entertaining and informative topics. Sit back and enjoy a chat with Jon, and us, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
