there was a hint here http://www.guildwargamers.com/phpBB3/vi ... 66&t=25137 from Piers Brand that he was already thinking of the books coming out in 2014, and some people have read into it moderns.

Thanks for that link:
But we were discussing Cold War again recently.
That'll do for me, I'm calling it in:

'PROBSUB' - Datum - Vic. 2014 - Based on: RCW(Rumours, Conjecture & Wishful thinking)

Wouldn't it be great to have a commercially successful set of viable Cold War armour based rules!

Not sure if anyone one has caught up with the news but BGK has only been posted surface mail so the earliest we can expect it it the first week of December if we changed from the STUG, if you waited for it I guess you will see it the first week of January given all the public holidays coming up.

Not happy and have told them so

I'm in the same boat- pre-ordered mine & decided to wait for StuG. December sounds optimistic to me, surface is real slow with increased chances of damage to the parcel.
I too have emailed PSC and expressed my unhappiness with this- I would have paid extra for Airmail if they had given the option.

......Later.....
Received this reply from Will at PSC:
If you live outside the EU your order has been shipped surface mail - airmail is ruinously expensive at £27, we would be making a loss.



I apologise for any confusion and I will be changing shipping practices for the next Normandy book next year - probably offering both sea and air shipping options



Best regards

Yep that was me, but I don't think that means that all international orders will go airmail. I think I was a just a lucky one who get theirs by airmail. I suspect (and it is only a guess) that once they realised how much they were paying for air they stopped doing it. I was just settling into the "Oh well, I have to wait a couple more months" when it arrived at my PO box.

The point is don't get your hopes up for an early delivery.

Edit: fixed stupid spelling mistake.

If I read this correctly, War And Peace are claiming to have BGK in stock.
