|New cover art!|
Richard Clarke has been teasing us like a bunch of spotty faced teens at a peep show over the past months with previews of the cover and interior art work. It seems that the Too Fat Lardies (Richard Clarke and Nick Skinner) have piled everything they've learned over the last decade of designing and publishing top quality war games into this latest release.
You can read an interview with them outlining the changes in the 3rd edition here.
Here is a teaser shot of the new interior design:
Since rumours of IABSM3s release this fall have been circulating for a few months I've been carefully husbanding a commission payment so I could jump on the bandwagon and order the full-Lard deal; hard copy book, tokens and set of pre-printed cards.
It's a bit of an indulgence. I could carry on using hand written cards and slips of paper to mark AFV damage, but this is a game I'll keep playing and I do like good aesthetics in my games, even if I don't always achieve them. I also ordered a copy of Sharpe Practice against the day when I finally get some paint on my Napoleonics!
It's a sunny day out I think I'll go prime the German paratroopers I owe him for all this.
