(with apologies to Don McClean...)
The book is very handsomely produced., and the spiral binding means it will lay flat on the tabletop.
I was a bit surprised that the scenarios in fact only covered a few battles (Talavera being the basis of 5 scenarios all by itself), but they all seem well thought out and presented. To help push the Kickstarter over the top, an additional 4 scenarios in pdf form were pledged to backers, which have yet to be delivered, but the books themselves were just printed in January, so I have every confidence they will be forthcoming in due time.
Second, I took advantage of the waning days of the Lancashire Games winter sale to pick a bunch of packs of Limbers and teams.
Unfortunately, Lancashire doesn't label their packs so until I take the figures out it is a bit hard to know what's what! In total, there are figures for 2 Bavarian Limber teams (the second will become a Badner limber team for when I buy the Murawski Baden artillery battery), 5 British Limber teams, plus a British Caisson and team thrown in for variety.
Plans to add a respectable number of limbers to my Napoleonic armies was indeed the rationale behind the fifty 60 x 150 mm Litko bases I purchased in December as part of their winter sale.
