i have to say, the quality of the bits for this game is top notch. The rulebook is in full color, printed on thick, glossy paper. The map is great quality, and the bits are perfect (no tearing on punching at all).

The red color used on the box and the Russian pieces is very bright and attractive.

i've skimmed the rules, and it looks exciting, fast paced, and easy to play. Kudos to MMP for putting together a game that appears to very accessible yet still fun and challenging in gameplay. i can't wait to actually give this a whirl!

As a side note, this is my first preorder ever of a boardgame, and it is my third MMP product (my other two are Target: Arnhem , my first, and The Mighty Endeavor, my second). i am very pleased with MMP, and i look forward to playing this and more of their games!

Man I am really impressed with the components of this game!! The ONLY thing that is lacking is the strength of the box itself! The map is great and more durable than the paper maps that GMT uses

Yeah, this game is really a beauty. The colors of the counters seem to put some off at first, but you get used to it quickly. I like that fact you get two options for what kind of armor/motorized counters to use, although I honestly can't imagine anyone using the rhombus armor counters over the nifty silhouette ones. The rulebook is a thing of beauty, as it is full color and one of the easiest I have ever seen for a wargame.

I would agree that the box of this and all MMP games really are a weak point. I wish they would find a way to move away from those flimsy ones to something a bit more durable.
