To his friend a man
a friend shall prove,
To him and the friend of his friend;
But never a man
shall friendship make
With one of his foeman's friends.

We will be able to download the PDF after the game becomes available?
Have been collecting these guys for over 45 years, I am very excited about this game and hopeful that other periods will soon follow!

Thank you, I hope you initial response has been excellent and that rule sets for other eras are forthcoming soon.

While picking up some more Airfix WWII figures in a local model shop, I also spotted an Airfix Battle of Waterloo battle set. £40 quid got me two large armies and terrain. A set of cards for Waterloo would be super!!

I'm sure, even if Modiphius doesn't port the rules to other eras, that some fan will. I don't know what plans they have through, although people requesting certain eras can't hurt.
