FAB: Sicily - got a notice from the post office that I have something to pick up there - could be this baby
Nations in Arms: Valmy to Waterloo
Pax Baltica
Lincoln's War
Reds! The Russian Civil War 1918-1921 - I was a bit (happily) surprised to see this on the 2012 list in GMT's email a while ago w. so few preorders to date
Warriors of Japan

...and I'm looking eagerly at a number of the GMT games: primarily Unconditional Surrender! World War 2 in Europe, The Supreme Commander, and Virgin Queen.
Amongst others... whistle

Edit: it sure was FAB: Sicily - scratch one of the list!

So, as we enter the new year (and let's hope our Mayan friends were wrong about it being the last year), what wargames do you presently have on preorder?

As for myself, I currently have seven games/expansions on preorder, which constitutes an all time personal high (and also reflects the corrosive influence of the denizens of this subdomain, with all this talk of this game and that). They are:

Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion #3 – The Austrian Army
Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion #4 – The Prussian Army
Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion #2 – The Russian Army
FAB: Sicily
Space Empires: Close Encounters
Barbarossa: Army Group South, 1941
Korea: The Forgotten War
new Barbarossa: Army Group North, 1941

The first three represent my addiction to all things Commands & Colors. The Space Empires expansion is remarkable in that I haven't even punched the base game yet. The last two are directly attributable to me reading too many glowing posts regarding both the East Front series and the OCS series.

So, what pre-orders do you have on order as we begin 2012? This thread is meant strictly as a list of games on formal preorder, as opposed to simply all games you are looking forward to in 2012. Apologies in advance if in fact such a list has already been done. I looked but couldn't find one, but that may have more to do with my lousy search skills than anything else.


OK - update time for me. I received FAB: Sicily and it's punched, clipped, and stickered, so it's off the preorder list. Added to the list however is Barbarossa: Army Group North, 1941. I also plan to P500 Barbarossa: Army Group Center, 1941 when it comes out on the P500, which looks like later this year.

It's already been pushed back twice...THIS year.

Maybe the entire TSWW series will make it out before Total War does.

Just three for this year:

Virgin Queen
Kingdom of Heaven: The Crusader States 1097-1291
Angola

Though I guess there is always the chance these two come out:

Cuba Libre
Warriors of Japan

I will probably buy these two once they come out also:

1989: Dawn of Freedom
The God Kings: Warfare at the Dawn of Civilization, 1500 – 1260BC

No more pre-orders. If it isn't here I don't buy it.


Quite so when you have to worry about VAT.

I notice nobody seems to want WiF Blitz, which is due in 2012. No takers then?

For me too, just Virgin Queen.

Or if 1989: Dawn of Freedom counts, than these two.

I've already made the commitment for Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! – Russia 1941-42 (2nd edition), and I'm thinking about Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #1 – Greece & Eastern Kingdoms and Normandy '44.

EDIT: I just jumped on board for the P500 release of C&C:A Expansion Pack #1, and I'll continue to track Normandy '44 for timing. Most likely, I'll join that rodeo next month or the month after. Drat, No Retreat! The North African Front is looking awful tasty, too...

That is over $700 worth of games not including shipping. Whaaaaa. After wiping away the crocodile tears, 2012 is going to be a great year!

Other:
The War of the Suns.. not sure going back and forth on this one
The Guns of Gettysburg.. cannot preorder but will get it as soon as it becomes available
Bonaparte at Marengo.. cannot preorder but will, hopefully, be able to get just the revised mapboard (have 1st edition).
