Probably just going to order the rules myself. I already have a load of Dust minis I can use. I will probably try to kitbash the new tanks from Tamiya kits and 40K bitz. I'm looking at this as a side game to BA rather than a replacement. Historical stuff will still be my main focus, so no sense in spending a lot on official minis when I already have plenty of WWW2 from other sources.

I really like WWW2 setting, but I'll wait and see before I dive in.

Yeah, just the rulebook for me too. I've got loads of Dust bits, and I'm looking forward to converting up some Tamiya tanks for it.

I received my rulebook yesterday, the fluff is good and some of the rule changes are reminiscent of Antares (especially the reactions).
Looking forward to giving it a go!

On the painting table:
Bolt Action Narvik Army

Zombicide base set (so many zombies!)
