Bolt Action - Warlord Games delves into WW2!

Having read the latest (July) issue of Wargames Illustrated and it's preview of Warlord Games' Bolt Action 28mm WWII game; I can honestly say that it took my interest. I then proceeded onto the Warlord Games site and had a nose around, I had noticed the game but never really paid enough attention before now.
The game looks very interesting; it is written by Rick Priestley and Alessio Cavatore, and features a main rulebook, followed by "army" books for each of the major partcipating nations; for example, Germany, Britain and the Commonwealth, America and Japan. I've read that each of these features a few variant lists; like Airborne and Mechanized forces as well as basic forces.
Having already got some 28mm WWII  miniatures for Secrets of the Third Reich, this game got my attention, and the miniatures available from Warlord for the game look very nice in my opinion, and feature a wide variation of vehicles and infantry sets.
The game rules come out in September and are swiftly followed by the army books.
I am very much looking forward to this game... now to attract some potential opponents....
