So, I've gotten myself pretty keen for some submarine (or should that be u-boat) goodness, but can't see anywhere when we can actually expect this to be printed. Anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

It's now under P500 pre-ordering from GMT. See:
http://www.gmtgames.com/p-556-the-hunters-3rd-printing.aspx

And also the sequel, The Hunted:

Thanks, but do we have an expected date, or how long do these things usually take? I've already pre-ordered, and watched Das Boot and U-571 in anticipation!

Also watch The Enemy Below. It is based on a true story, the real-life battle between U-405 and USS Borie in November 1943.
Also good is the BBC production of The Laconia Incident, which is based on the real-life saga of the U-256. There is a little bit of soap opera melodrama here and there, but overall it is a decent depiction of the actual events..

Hey Zachary,

I just finished proofing the second draft of the rules (the actual layout....not rough draft.) The main holdup at this point is artwork.... the counters are done (maybe half a dozen left at most) and the U-boat mats are laid out....but because we have 20 capital ships now, that's taking a bit extra time. But Ian is working hard.

I'm still hopeful for this year, though. We are getting there, and since it's the 3rd game in the system, we have previous experience to draw on to hasten the process. But the game is done....just making it print-ready at this point, and doing final artwork.

Greg

Thats awesome to hear, thanks.
I went to my local library a couple of days ago and found a copy of the Clay Blair book "The Hunted" so that's keeping me interested.

In the meantime I might have to find another solo game to play, lately I've played a lot of Hornet Leader and enjoyed it, but I'd like something else now...

So if I make an order for the 3rd Printing, it's definitely going to be the upgraded "Deluxe" version of the game with the new content?

If so, why does it still say "This is a straight reprint; all components are identical to the Second Print Edition" on the store page?

Sorry. It says that because I haven't updated the P500 page yet.

Any idea why the p500 page has this listed as Out of Stock? Is the reprint already sold out?

Sorry for the confusion. The game is out of stock currently and this is the Preorder Page for the next printing of the game (which will be updated to include the Expansion).

Just noticed the latest print schedule from GMT (which includes early 2018) doesn't include Hunters...is that correct?

I just asked this in the Silent Victory Forum as well. Really hoping The Hunters is Q1 2018 with the other ones.
