I'm all-in. Though a little worried they don't turn this into a "Card Game" or add a layer of PC morality. The new Supply mechanic looks very intriguing.

It's no more a "card game" than the last 2 in the series.
And there's no PC morality.... only a choice if you want to deal with "real" war happenings or not. Choice is always good.

Nice write up, plenty of pictures is always good. At this point i'm in the camp of any wargame that wants to be different is a good thing. I am a little concerned about the time frame and replayability given its only one scenario. Hope Slitherine doesn't price people out, worries me when slitherine calls it a "big game" . I'm a fan of Vic's games so its a given that i will be picking this up at some point. Thanks again for the preview.
