First thing up was the base set for the new game from Lost Battalion Games. Of immediate note was the Kickstarter Logo proudly emblazoned across the box.
And then I noticed something else which kind of blew me away...they had placed a property notice on the corner with my name & backer number! Now how cool is that!
So I thought for a moment, they would have had to have each box cover of their Kickstarter supporters printed & then hope that they didn't goof on the shipments.
Another bonus of this Kickstarter was the option to purchase characters Named by you. Of course the German custom character had to be Steiner! And then I went & immortalized myself. Of course everyone at the club is now saying "I can't wait to kill Terry now in a game!"
Another thing of note is that every item of the game has a tag showing whom packaged it from Lost Battalion Games.
Again these came pre-painted, so apart from gluing them to their dog-tag base (the glue tab is also supplied) they are ready to go.
There are a bunch of other miniatures in the base box as well to get you started.

The Red-Devil base box figures.
The German base box figures.
Of course there were the extras I got as well to keep me going for awhile until they produce some more material.
Hasty Positions and Pontigou Farm
Infiltration and British Airborne Reinforcements.
Game Masters Aide Kit & Veteran's Pack
Of course some more of the miniatures to add to the forces. Here I have a Piat Team, Mortar, Sniper Team & Pathfinder Team.
I also got the Operation Tonga Kickstarter Pack.
With a storm coming in the next couple of days, these arrivals will certainly help me weather it!
I will likely ask Scott to come out to give this new Red Devils a couple play's before I bring it out to the club, hopefully the second meeting of December.
