Like everything shown here, boards look great, and glad to know they have summer on other side. Like the rules addtitions, especially ammo types. Glad to see some other AT guns. Still do not particularly like that model of the T34, because the turret is no where near what a T-34 turret looks like..sigh... but otherwise, Great job! Already had my game store on alert to order me FOTB, so looking forward to it.

So this is going to happen !! Great job on this extension ! Balkas, trenches and special ammunition will, no doubt about it, renew that already great game.

Now, I'll just have to ask the mailman about my delivery every single day I see him... Poor man.

Only 6 scenarios - quite disappointing after Normandy had 8.

Also, I was hoping for new figures - not tanks for the Germans, but I guess they didn't want to mess with the current balance.

Still, I will be interested in getting this to the table at some stage.
