Already ordered it. It looks good!

I wish Paratroopers would move a little faster though. That's the only one I am missing.

The question of when remains.

I'm flabbergasted at this tank business. Tank counters along with it?

From GMT's description of the game (emphasis added):

Quote:
Special experimental AFV Rules are featured in four of the scenarios where tanks are facing infantry in settings that reveal how the doctrines, armaments and countermeasures were still early in development. While unfettered races by companies of tanks across the countryside remain a landmark image of the blitzkrieg, we found many instances of a more tentative level of engagement, suitable for our attempt at capturing an unusual element in the CC scope – TANKS!

Yes, but...

There is one scenario in CC: E that features a broken-down tank. The campaign scenario in Normandy features off-board tanks. New Guinea has a scenario with firing tanks on-map.

None of these scenarios used a tank counter. A pillbox counter in CCE, and unused objective markers in NG were used to mark the presence of tanks previously. Something along those lines could easily be the case here. On the other hand, tanks are being noted in the description of this expansion upfront and center. That makes me wonder if we may indeed see a few tank counters.

No matter..while it's fun to speculate on such trivial things, there is no question that this project looks fun from a game standpoint as well as being historically informative. Thrilled to see the CC system grow!

Check out the market on this game in BGG.
I bought a new copy from someone in Germany about 1/2 year ago.
Super service (both on the contact, answering questions and shipping).

Highly recommended and I think he might have 1 or 2 copies left if you want it now before waiting for the reprint.

Where can I put in a bet on when the magic number is hit? Within 24 hours of announcement? C'MON, WE CAN DO THIS!

Also, credit where it's due. Couple people bulls-eyed it over here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/831967/playtesting-at-wbc

Bravo.

Thanks, Chester, but this battle pack is entirely designed and developed by John Foley and Bryan Collars. Any and all kudos should be directed at them.

"CC–Fall of the West features twelve new scenarios printed on cardstock as well as ten new maps."

There is no mention of tank counters. I realize this is my interpretation but, to me, it looks like the only things they are planning to include with this expansion are twelve new scenarios and ten new maps. I know is says "features" and that is not an all-inclusive word, but I just don't think we will ever see tank counters in CC. I would be happy to be wrong though.

This is only the GMT site, not the CC rules. We can interpret widely and wildly.

Yes, because you Mr. Jensen are hard at work helping to develop the "electronic version of Combat Commander".

So pumped!!!

Edit - Typos, I start shaking any time I think about and type "elctranic versian of Combit Commabdo". It seems there also may be a drooling effect.
