    Is this the correct place to ask about the status of NW68: HoD? If so, what's the status? If not, where do I need to go?

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe this and ANZAC are the next ones to go to the printer, and think they are being printed in the USA, so delivery time from the printer to Colorado will be a lot quicker.

    Thanks for the info. I'm glad to hear it's (maybe) being printed in the US. In any case, I was charged for it a couple weeks ago, iirc.

    The HOD files are printer ready, and yes they are being printed in America. I've seen pics of the book and map prototype, and they look good. I don't have that print date. That's Jim's bailiwick. AA2 is also very close, but not qute as close.

    Hi Guys,

    I'll jump in here, although I might not be the best person to answer this. I'm not in charge of production, but I know that the Colorado crew are working with a new printer. Sometimes it takes time to make sure the specs are correct. Anything else Jim will need to answer.

    Too bad, gonna be spending a long cold winter in Halifax without the family come October. Was hoping battling Nazis and Mutants would warm my heart!
    Well, I still have an invasion on American soil to occupy my time!

    Byrne... no, no... I can't tell you if HoD will ship before October 15th, but I guarantee you'll get it before winter.

    BTW, are you interested in play testing?

    Hi Mark I can handle these questions better going forward.

    We are about a month behind and things are picking up pace everyday. We are working out the details with our new printer in the US. There have been few issues but it is more of us getting things the way we want. We should have our next games out and in people hands in OCT. Sorry guys I am not going to nail down a date.

    Sir,
    I would be honoured to be a playtester, however, I can't commit until I'm settled into my quarters in the Halifax Wardroom in October. I'll get back to you end October. Perhaps I'll even see you again at Jeff Newell's Game On! Con in Seattle in Feb? I definitely thought that Nations at War multiplayer tournament game was a blast!

    We are still resolving counter-printing issues.

    I think it is all very close. If this works out, I think you all will be excited.

    Are there any updates about the status of HoD that can be shared? I see in Oct it was stated that it "is all very close". I haven't seen any new news for some time.

    Thanks in advance
