Hi Guys,I just picked up the rulebook and template for RoE. I play Flames of War and love it but the Bolt Action models are too pretty. I admit I am very happy with the quality of the book and template and now have the Bolt Action Screaming Eagles on order. Are you guys using missions from the book or making up your own? I would love to put on a demo game later this year at my LGS in Toowoomba, QLD, Australia and try to get more people interested in gaming. I do know of the Great Escape Games forums but am keen to keep posting here as well. I plan to pick up some of the new Bolt Action Commandos when they are released and some Heer, FJ's and maybe SS. The Chindits look incredible and it's hard to resist them after watching The Pacific Happy Gaming, Allan
Don't forget to download the errata lists off the RoE website - there's quite a lot of stuff because whenever a new one pops up on the forums they add it to the downloads. There's also a load of alternative lists for forces not covered in the book. I've got an Airlanding Platoon list sat in the back of my book.

Allan, the scenarios do a great job for pick up games and small demo/participation ones. For display games it's well worth doing your own scenario. We do that when we play our company-sized weekend games in Cardiff. We structure it around one of the scenarios then add extra objectives and surprises.
