    “Summer Storm” is a more accurate scenario book than both of Black Powders for Gettysburg, etc.

    I actually received it and its seems ok, just not sure how Warlord Games and “Geek” are associating the mat with the new Epic ACW line, other than its Gettysburg.

    75% of the mat covers the area south of town and west of Emmitsburg Rd, leaving only 25% of the mat usable for only the NW quadrant of the first days battle aka the scenario included in the starter sets, minus the area North of Town. Thus, if you play the Gettysburg Day 1 scenario from the game book, its about an area of 2 feet by 3 feet at most.

    Does not have even close to the detail the Cigar Box Battle Mat for Gettysburg has.

    Already sending photos to Warlord per their request.

    Even without seeing the photos they are blaming the shipper.

    If indeed the shipper rough handled the box, which there is no evidence of, its perfect and has not been opened re-sealed, the fact the one small “brigade box” which had no shrink wrap , while the other one did, would not have spilled its contents with shrink wrap around it.

    In addition, one small crushed bundle of brown paper to keep the big box and 2 smaller ones from being tossed is not enough.

    Frankly, between this issue, Warlords new extra shipping fee, new minimum order policy to ship, slow shipping and processing times as well as waiting a month still for my Gettysburg mat to be even processed or shipped is just too many issues in too short a time.

    I do not even want anything from them as a result of the damaged and bent plastic swords.

    Just an acknowledgement they will not allow this to happen to other customers like you.

    I am sending the photos to them today, but no matter what, I refuse to order directly from them ever again.

    I have a great local dealer, who gets all their pre-orders and gets them to you faster than Warlord can.

    MUCH faster, and packed with care.

    George,

    Since this was likely Warlords fault and not the shipping company, it won’t make any difference.

    I do not believe customs did it, as the box does not seemed to be resealed.

    Hi,

    I am in the USA, and the package went thru customs at Los Angeles California (Californication).

    However, the outer box was flawless, something I would not expect if the same customs trashed the inside.

    Its possible though.

    Regardless of the reason, I am no longer going to order directly from them.

    Instead I will wait for my online game shop located physically here in the USA to get Warlords products including pre-order products.

    In fact, I already have and they are faster, shipping cost less, and packed with care, as well as bubble wrap.

    Warlord only threw  in a sad single brown hand twisted crushed brown packing paper on one side, whoopi doo

    Mine was a mess.

    NOTE the outer shipping box was 100% sealed, with NO damage at all.
    Here is the list of issues the packer “Ana” (2 of her packing cards were enclosed) caused:
    1) The main box was not shrink wrapped and had already been opened.
    2) One of the two brigade boxes had no shrink wrap, was partially crushed and ripped along its edge, with some contents spilling out.
    3) There was for some odd reason a round gray plastic piece with Warlord Games on it that also fell out of the damaged brigade box mentioned in (2), and another found in the main shipping box.
    4) In the preorder box was numerous pieces that were already cut or broken off the plastic sprue, some with bent or broken swords etc.
    Obviously, all of this is the high quality and service we receive from their high shipping prices as well as their soon to be increased “Warlord Fee” just to send packages and minimal order amounts.

    wow, I can’t believe Warlord is pushing this mat via email even though its inaccurate.

    I do have the Gettysburg cigar box mat, but that was designed specifically for a different ruleset.

    Been using these plastic fishing tackle trays and similar since 1992.

    Just make sure they are deep enough to clear riders, bayonets, lances, flags etc.

    I just painted up the frames you receive for free from Wargames Illustrated.

    They were easy to paint using the techniques suggested in that magazine issue, but I adjusted them to my age old techniques.

    Got them done fast and they look EPIC and AWESOME.

    Just dont immediately go from painting a 28mm to these.

    Instead wait a day to let your eyes adjust, otherwise as what happened to me I could not see and paint well because I was so accustomed to the larger size.

    The next day and thereafter, I just painted the Epic miniatures and wow, might as well have been 28mm, as I could now see again and paint since my eyes adjusted to the new smaller size.
