The new Gear Krieg rulebook is released!

Victory Decision: Gear Krieg is your comprehensive guide to using Two-fisted Pulp Superscience Armoured Fighting Vehicles and Infantry units in Victory Decision. These rules cover almost all aspects of World War II wargaming, from Troop Quality and Leadership to Artillery Strikes, Bunker Assaults, Combat in Buildings and Vehicle combat.

This book provides the full background to the Gear Krieg Universe and covers all the unit descriptions, pictures and stats for all the Gear Krieg models that are currently produced by Dream Pod 9. From German Rockettroops, Zombies, Panzerkämpfer, Japanese, British and US combat walker, the US aerial Infantry, to Soviet Superheayv tanks - everything is in this book.
Victory Decision: Gear Krieg features a unique Leadership-modified alternate unit activation system. The result is a fun and fast paced war game that involves both players constantly.

The rules cover individually based infantry miniatures and also group- or multibased miniatures, aka Infantry Stands. While designed with 20-28mm miniatures in mind the Victory Decision game system is flexible enough to handle any miniatures from 6mm to 32mm. So whatever your existing miniature collection consists of, you can start playing right away.
This rulebook not only provides 7 generic Scenarios and 3 historical Gear Krieg scenarios but also Point based Army Lists for British, German, Japanese, Soviet and US forces.
All necessary Game Markers are also included within this book.
As with all our ebooks you will get in fact 2 books:
- a full colour version with many high quality pictures of fully painted models
- in addition a B&W text only printer friendly version
Gear Krieg the biggest book I have done so far, over 200 pages. Best thing - everything is 100% compatible with all previous Victory Decision WW II books.

The print on demand offer will be available in 2013.

The book is available via the Wargame Vault: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/109526

Just a quick update, the print on demand book is finished and is uploaded at Wargame Vault.
WV has it now in premedia status. They will check the file (all TTFs embedded, only CMYK pics etc) and then transfer it to Lightning Source.
I will then order my proof copy and  - if all comes up good - can release the book!

Good!  Cool
Believe me, it was a good feeling to hold the book physically...

Did the discount worked?
Had to send 2 mails to (hopefully) get it thru...

Thanks! Cool
However - since my copy took roughly 3 weeks I doubt that 1 week is possible.  Confused
