Winter Wars Shipping Date? Thu, 18 November 2010 17:54
Can anyone from DOW advise as to when Winter Wars will be shipping from the Euro Store? I pre-ordered mine but have not received a confirmation email that it has shipped (although I note that the Euro store is now showing WW as in stock)

Regards

Mark

Got mine yesterday (email that is). I am looking forward to the BoB scenarios (Battle of the Bulge)! I have read several books and WWII magazine articles about it and have several scenarios of my own. (see my user page). Also looking forward to those breakthrough cards! I don't know about you, but I find myself playing more overlord and breakthrough scenarios than regular. (Yes I also have the special overlord deck!)

I think he means #20 in the collection of Troop cards. That number is probably still reserved for a troop type that is not released yet.

With Memoir '44 Online running, I'll bet things like this have been forced to the back for a little while. But then again, DoW never ceases to amaze me! If I didn't know better, I would think they were working around the clock with all the amazing things they do... Cool

The UPS man just delivered mine. I'm looking forward to reading through the rules, and looking more forward to my friends coming over on Saturday and playing through some of the scenarios! My Christmas present to myself!

Firefight in Neffe, the Overlord scenario promised for Winter Wars, is now available in the Official list of scenarios. Happy gaming!

I don't know who they ship through, but neither UPS nor Fed-Ex will be delivering Friday in the U.S. (They make Thanksgiving a long weekend.)

Got my "shipped" email yesterday morning, and the parcel yesterday afternoon.

All in all looks pretty good, loads of Terrain tiles to improve visuals on winter scenarios, a decent number of new scenarios (my major disappointment with original terrain pack, was a lack of scenarios) and some nice touches with the little 88 badges and the Tank-destroyers.

Haven't had a chance to try out the new decks yet (think "on the move" seems like a must-have for breakthrough) but definitely looking forward to it.

All in all, seems like a really good expansion for people who've got all the other bits that it links in to. Bad luck to those who won't have it for the long w/e in the US - at least there's Open Beta.

Well I still have not got my parcel. The courier firm DPD claim to have delivered it to me today. I was at home all day and can catagorically state that no one called. DPD now claim the parcel has been "lost".

Not a very happy state of affairs. Not DOW's fault of course but I have nothing good to say about the courier firm. I will now have to contact DOW's customer services to see how this can be sorted out.

I have one unhappy 12 year old at home as this was ordered as a birthday present. Mad

Excellent!

One thing -- on the back of the expansion it states there are 16 obstacles, but I only received 8 rectangular tiles.

I wonder if they counted both sides of the 8, coming up with 16?

Which means I am good with my 8, if not I am short 8. They were the only component in my box that was not wrapped or bagged, as they came loose, I cannot tell.

One other word of warning, DO NOT place the Frozen Ground card next to the Heat of Battle card or else you may end up with Thawed Muddy Ground Laughing

Interestingly enough, these cards were one after the other in the deck.

I'm sure they were referring to the fact that you having 16 obstacles...8 on each side. I haven't seen mine yet (it's in Oregon, I'm in Abu Dhabi and my parents are bringing it with them at Christmas) so could you tell me what the different sides are? Rolling Eyes
