Naturally this made me even more excited for the release.

I haven't seen the miniatures for the USMC, but I like the styling of all of the companies revealed so far. The tidbits given by Craig sound very interesting as well.
The USMC are one of the most advanced companies technologically with access to such wonders as mechanical walkers, rocket packs and the Edison Beam Translator.This is, of course, pretty far from our actual history. We've always been the government's step children. We do more with less. I'm looking forward to having a company that has these elite elements, but we'll have to see how that is achieved. I may end up building my own company if the one in the book doesn't match my vision.

People will be able to pick up their pre-orders at Salute this weekend. For those of us on the left side of the Atlantic that means that, while we miss out on the chance to peruse the book ourselves, we should see reviews and battle reports popping up soon on blogs.
For those who can't make Salute, but don't want to wait until mid May, North Star has one more day of their "Nickstarter". I'll be honest here; I didn't back this. None of the companies that are available right now appeal to me all that much. This ends on the 18th, so not much time. If you want the book and like any of the current companies than this is the way to go.
The game design appeals to me. The Victorian era is really very interesting. An age of exploration, exploitation and adventure. Here is the design brief:
This sounds pretty good to me.
