Yup, I placed my pre-order yesterday through OMM too. I wonder how much of my Dutch flags I'll be adjusting...looking forward to the work.

There are 526 pages to go through, with 100+ colour plates so will probably take a while to go through. It is very comprehensive, and not being able to speak German it is nice to have it in English, and all in one place (I have the German CD's and booklets etc which proceeded this CD).

On a quick initial look through, I would say this there are some new flags etc but more of putting the right flags/uniforms/history etc with the right units for the right time periods.

Having had another look - there appears to be at least 1 flag for every cavalry unit, so some of these will be new.

Sounds great. I can't wait to get mine.

Hopefully someone will make commercial flags for the Dutch in the WSS. I'd like to start turning the crank on the Dutch cavalry at Ramillies.
