Well, I did the cover.
And I suppose posting it here sort of commits me to delivering some time soon-ish.
Why? Well I discovered on checking the small print that Amazon will only pay me my royalties once they get over £100. As I make about £1 on the "To Ur is Human" rule book I obviously need to sell 100 before they send me any dosh.
This one will retail at between £10 - £15, I expect, as they'll be lots more in it, plus, I might do it in colour. That means a slightly higher profit per unit, so together with the "To Ur" rules I might make enough to actually get paid, assuming those who bought the last set become fan-boys and have to own all my output.
Why colour? I have cards in the game for the Generals, and they currently have flags on them, which look better in colour. Plus there's the "Disorder" markers, which I might put on a "scan for your own purposes" page, and I also drew a lot of flags for my units, so a cut-out flag page might be a good idea.. There's too much of this stuff (especially the officers) to make use of the back cover for it, I think.
I'm intending to include a brief history, plus scenarios for the major battles, together with appropriate force lists and some uniform painting details, plus a proper bibliography.
I'm a bit torn on the Naval theatre. I have the model ships, and I use an ever-so-slightly modified set of rules a friend wrote, which I played at COW. At the moment I can't see the point of completely re-writing them, so perhaps I should drop him a line and see if he objects to me including them (with appropriate thanks and attribution, of course). However, that also means more maps and also ship information and the need to source copyright free illustrations of all the vessels involved.
Food for thought.
