I'm becoming more and more intrigued by this with each passing day. However I missed out on the KS campaign, was this the only chance to get the stretch goal nationalities and personalities, like the Canadians and Airborne? Will they also be released as a separate expansion?

You'll probably miss out on the canvas bag and possibly some of the advanced weapons or specialty vehicles that didn't go with a nationality set, but my guess is those will eventually get released as well, perhaps even with the respective nationality.

Or, last option is to watch the listings here or on eBay. I'm sure there will be people who bought more than 1 a looking to sell some of the extra sets for a little profit.

It was also mentioned that those stretch expansions would not hit retail immediately, so you should expect to have to wait for some time to find them on store shelves. Retailers would not take kindly to being inundated with all of these Up Front offerings at once.

IIRC, there was mention the nationality sets would be released for ~$10-12 and the sets with action decks for ~$20-25.

Rik has said everything (except the bound rulebook) would be available. Major nations $26.95. Base game $49.95. You can find his comments in the comment page of the kickstarter...

$49.95 an $26.95 for MAJOR nations. Varied for MINOR stretch nations.

... The rulebook will ONLY be available to Kickstarter supporters. A later all-inclucsive one may be published later but it would not be hard bound like the exclusive one.:

Yes, we will trickle that stretch reward nations into game stores over a year or two.

I couldn't find the comment on the bag, but they sell their other kickstarter bag (D-Day Dice for $25) on their web site.

I'm not a completest. I'm sure there are some nations/armies that I just will not be interested in playing. So I'll probably be putting those up on the market. I doubt I'm alone so there will be a way to get these nations before they are available retail.

I wonder WHERE you can buy this game AND the 5 extra nationalities when you missed out on Kickstarter?

Well right now there isn't a place at all. Someday online and retail stores I'm sure.

You could search Ebay for the old edition though.

That's why I was hesitating to participate on Kickstarter. I have the old edition. But when I see the new graphics... That's something else!!!

That's part of the reason I may never get into this game at all. I'm not going to pay ridicules extortion prices to the ebay crowd. I'd rather pay direct to the publisher or to a brick and mortar store at a reasonable price. If it turns out that the stretch goal expansions were a one time only limited edition thing count me out as well, I do not like "collectable" games.

Hopefully they'll be released as regular expansions at a later date though. So far I'm watching with guarded optimism.

You're 100% right. If this can not be bought after Kickstart in a normal store or even directly from the publisher, you can bet on it that this will get an "Ebay-treatment" like Warhammer Quest and the old Spacehulk-editions and that you will pay maybe 10 x the original cost. Been there done that a bit too much in the past, giving me lots of "wife & wallet"-problems... zombiecry
