Weeee what a pleasant surprise it was when I opend my mail box after work. In only 5-6 days my copy of the book arrived in Germany. Great, didnt expect it so fast.

Really neat looking and the markers are also very nice. And there was a little surprise with this package and thats why I love this company. Oh and this handwritten "Thank you :)" on my Order Receipt really gives me the feeling of a close to the customer company.

Thank you too for the little extra looks great.

Thanks for sharing your nice comments, they made Debs' day!

This book has to be one of the pieces of gaming literature I have ever seen. I basically only bought it for completeness and the desire to have some more Wargods fluff to read. I was somewhat impressed when I saw what the PDF looked like but once I held the book in my hands I was blown away. The book looks slick and highly professional without being ostentatious. Even the feel of the book makes my hands happy for some strange reason. If this is the level of product you guys are going to turn out regularly then the the sky is the limit. The only thing stopping the Croc from taking its rightful place among the big boys like GW, Privateer and Battlefront (FoW) is churning out more products per year. My wife has not played a miniature game in years and she kept wanting to read the book when she saw it. I cannot praise this book enough. I think the last time a gaming book of any variety had me this emotional it was either Ends of Empire for Wraith or maybe Gehenna for Vampire and those two both filled me with sadness as well as joy because both meant that a game I loved had ceased production. This is the first time a miniature gaming book had this effect on me, and I used to run a game shop that specialized in miniature games. Great job guys.

I can't wait to get mine, along with the rest of Christmas gift to myself!

Yup, once I have it it will be my "Flagship" book for Wargods. Whenever I'm playing a game at the FLGS, or a friend would like to borrow a book to check out Wargods, the Wendigo book is the one I will hand over. Then I'll get to watch people drool over the pages & ask when I can show them the game. Hook, line & sinker!

Mhh well it arrived on a friday and on the sunday the same weekend it started to snow and unusually it didnt melt away. Since then the "Ruhrgebiet" is covered in snow which is really unusually for this part of Germany. I cant even rember if there was snowfall on this time of the year ever before. Now Iam getting worried....great..... O.o

Have to say i've read it over to cover twice now and want to read it again the book is simply superb and the quality of the command counters... they're in a class of their own.

I can't wait to get a game out and underway with my wendigo
