|The cover looks awesome. Steam, zombies and carnage.|
I pre-ordered the book from Amazon. SWMBO got an Amazon prime account for a month so I might as well make it worthwhile. This will show up at some point, which will be nice. EDIT (The disappointing thing for me is the starter companies. For the first week or so they had one of the upcoming companies as being USMC. They have since dropped that for US Secret Service. My guess is that the fact that the US Marine Corps trademarked the name is a problem. It's a shame, but there you go. Defiance Games ran into the same problem changing the name of their USMC faction to UAMC.) Everything in parenthesis is just flat wrong. I am very pleased to be corrected.
It's not every game where one of the authors contacts you directly on your blog to let you know that you are going to get what you want. It turns out that the Marines are still in and will, naturally, be awesome. Now I'm even more excited to see this game.
That being the case, I'm still interested since the game is supposed to have robust rules for building your own adventure company. So I'll still have my Marines, I'll just have to source them myself. That leads me to Google and a couple of promising companies.

The first up is Pulp Figures. These figures are not fantastic but they do have a good variety of equipment, including a couple of Lewis Guns and a Vickers. There is also a pack with an officer, BAR, Thompson, Shotgun and Rifle.
