I can see a run on people getting extra Breakthrough Decks before they go OoP.


I think DoW will make sure the Winter Wars expansion stays in stock for a nice long time. Smile


I hope so Ras as they already seem rare in the UK. £25 is a lot just to get the Breakthrough deck but I can't see DoW selling it seperately.

Winter Wars might need a reprint at some point, but I don't think they'll go the way of the Air Pack or Battle Maps. Cool

Are we saying then that the Breakthrough deck is the deck needed?

There is no mention of a deck provided with this expansion, so presumably the existing Breakthrough deck is the deck of choice?

How many decks are required, if you want to play more than one board say?

Do you require a deck for each board?

Also, ARE these paper maps?

2 BT decks is enough.

Will buy. Any preorder option before I do something daff like buying more Games Workshop minis with mi limited dollars?

Is there something on the back of the maps? 4 blank long-breakthrough would be great. If there is nothing, the paper map could be mounted on something more sturdy.

I wonder, if Omaha Beach is as tough as the real thing, most of the battle board will be unplayed on, just the Germans ferrying troops to the beach.

I've not noticed the new cards you mention .... I can see an Axis Control token, and an Entry token...

The game contents on the DoW splash page don't list any particular deck of cards ..

The fact the Winter Wars expansion gets a mention suggests the Breakthrough deck is the one being used, although if you need SIX in order to play the full map ... it's uncear.

It's all very intriguing .. Smile

Also,

I've noticed a slight change in the medal rack: some of the medals have an icon in the bottom-left. Not sure what do they mean.

Those look as if they are medals that the axis starts the game with, its on a few of the overlord maps as well.

Another nice addition, highly demanded by seasoned players...

asymmetric shore lines in some of the maps. No more simple beaches...

In the game photo on DOW's Facebook page, it looks like there's a deck on each board.

Breakthrough scenarios can be played just fine with a standard deck, or even an Overlord deck. You can use the special On The Move rule, and other special BTW rules, with it, since the WW rule book PDF is available online.
