CGL site says the Alpha Strike Commanders Edition rule book is out of stock.  Anyone know if they plan to reprint it?  Thanks.

Nobody:


Me: Soooo....is there any idea when it will be back in stock?


In all seriousness, I'm going to assume that if you happen to know that bit information, you would've shared it.

Knowing that there is a reprint is good news(???)

Thanks :thumbsup:

Hope it's due soon.  The local store would like to stock it!

My FLGS would like to be able to have me stop asking if they can order it yet  ;D

Hmm, that does raise the question then: is this a 'the order has been sent to the printers' reprinting, or a 'we all think it's a good idea to do sometime soon' reprinting?

It means the errata has to be collecting, the files edited, reviewed, approved, sent to printer, check work from printer, printed, shipped and distributed, etc.
It's in the process, but I don't know how long that process will take.
It is being reprinted.

Ahhh.....so it will contain the errata? That's very cool and will definitely have to keep an eye out for it.

The list of what will be fixed in the 2nd printing just went live this morning.  You can get the errata from the main webpage (note that it doesn't include stuff like typos and formatting corrections).

Also contains faction deployment & rarity info and Quirk lists.

I just want to interject a thank-you as an aside for saying 'raise the question' instead of 'beg the question'. My inner pedant is grateful.

Is there a future planned release for more Combat Manuals?

I purchased the PDFs and they are pretty cool.

I received an email about an update, I'm assuming this download contains the latest errata?

If so.....very nice.

Downloaded twice. Seems like it's still the original. Will try again tomorrow.

Checked the new file I downloaded against the original copy and the errata.  The new file I downloaded has the corrections in it.

Does yours have "2nd Printing" in the contents/acknowledgements?

Never mind. I have 2 download buttons and was clicking the first... which is the old volume. "Corrected 2nd Printing" it is.  :thumbsup:

I just wanted to drop in and say I am very impressed at how quickly the errata have been added in for the second print run. You folks are getting pretty darn good about rolling those changes into the books. I already appreciate the errata section and the compilations that have been made, but getting the errata pushed into a new PDF and new print run this quickly is awesome.

Well, the new print run happening this quickly is the fan's fault... :)
