I saw them play with one on Combat Dealers which I caught while channel hopping earlier in the week (an aside in the episode where they're looking for german paratrooper stuff)

That's very cool of them. Went ahead and downloaded the books and let my dad know as he's got a veritable Osprey library as it is. Heck, he may already own some of these.

I have a list, nothing sinister, of those who are being good guys and those who are attempting to profiteer.

Fortunately, no local shops near me are ramping up prices.

I definitely feel more tempted to buy some Osprey hardcopy in the future as a result of the offer they're running here.

You won’t be disappointed in Gaslands. I just wish that they would make their own templates and dice sets. I’ve gotten mine through Etsy (all friends of Gaslands), but it would be great to pick up even a decent quality set along with the book when checking out. Plus none of the stores around me stock those items.

If you have a friendly 3d printer nearby, there are loads of resources for gaslands on thingiverse. Cars,. Weapon packs, templates., scenery and rather nifty 3d dashboard thingies.

That's an absolutely ace selection of books!!!

Can't wait to get stuck in on the Hurricane, Waterloo and the Samurai, U.S heavy cruisers is a nice bonus and I know absolutely nothing about Czech Legion so it's going to be nice going in blind and learning something totally new.

edit:- Cheers OrlandotheTechnicoloured, just seen your recommendation. I'll check out combat dealers

Also here. At least it being a problem for several of us hopefully means it'll get fixed.

It's working, but you need to empty your basket - visit the main site, use the top right corner to pick where you are in the world...then add the books and continue on.

It has three areas I think; UK, US, and The Rest of the World ---- so your mailing address has to match whatever site you selected. Took me a while to get these five as their site is crashing a lot due to traffic, but I got them eventually.

The website keeps re-setting to "rest of world" for me too so I suspect only those in "rest of world" might find it works for now. It's clearly a glitch and might just be due to volumes of users right now.
