    Having played a few games of this I rate it very, very highly. Every game comes down to the tactics, never the army or the dice, and the rules are elegantly written. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve done with it.

    • From the author:
      “…there are no changes to the rules other than the ones already in the Errata, FAQ & Rules changes document. The purpose was to get a print run done so it can be sold in wargames shops and at shows. This should help to get more exposure for the rules and more people playing.”
      So if you have 1st edition you can download the above docs from the website and there you go.
