The latest word from Mark Walker.

"Garbo needs 150 more orders to go, and has accumulated them at a somewhat slower rate than the other WaW products".

I'm surprised.

I would have thought S-Tanks would be really popular. I know I have it on pre-order.

Could be the economy. People from GMT and MMP have said in recent interviews that their preorders are slowing down and existing preorders are being cancelled. It's not too much of a stretch that the hobby as a whole is taking a hit.

Certainly the current state of the economy is affecting my purchasing decisions (I broke the news to the wife about her spending yesterday).

Me too, and for the S-tanks, as well. Let's hope they put more than 3 in the counter-mix.

Not sure, but the description of "old men" fighting for the Swedes does not sound overly enticing, (at least to me). Perhaps "militia" or "regional conscripts" would have imparted a better flavor.

'Old men' fighting sounds quite cool to me. They probably have little more to live for and will take crazy risks - running across the meadow to throw a satchel charge on a T-72 engine deck, and then pulling their groin - ouch!

I can't wait. It's been long and painful. I also pre-ordered Dawns Early Light. I also agree that it's the economy. I have really enjoyed the entire series. I have also been waiting for Balkan Gambit which is supposed to be published by Fiery Dragon in 2009..............I have stopped holding my breath.

It seems like we have been waiting alllooonnngggg time.

I'm also in with DEL.

LnL seems to be quiet around these parts. I note they are charging people for P500 games, but I haven't read about them actually going to the printers (e.g. RoH and ATZ). I may be mistaken.

Hi folks,

Looks very quiet over here...
Any news about the P500 progress for this game?

No news for a while. I believe The Untold Stories will be released before Op Garbo as it is accumulating pre-orders at a faster rate.
