Hey chaps, let's finish Epic: Siege.  :grin:

I've uploaded a low resolution, black and white copy HERE.

Download it, fact-check it, proof-read it.
I'd like to call it done and have the final high-res version uploaded etc. soon.

Cheers!

You STILL have the naming wrong. To quoten myselfe:

Quote: 

And you had some names wrong if you go by the naming in the Vraks books.
Light Support Battery should be Field Artillery Battery.
Fire Support Battery should be Fire Support Platoon (obvioulsy only a typo).
Heavy Support Battery should be Artillery Battery.
Self-Propelled Support Battery should be Heavy Artillery Battery.

Last time this was raised there were quite a few objections to using those names and I dropped the issue.

There was? Uhm...i remember only that Steve54 (was it he?) mentioned that "a renaming isn't needed" (but actually the current namings in Epic: Siege IS a renaming).
I really can't find a plausible reason to object against the use of the proper namings.
After all those are the official designations the Death Korps of Krieg uses for their battle formations on all theatres of war. Not only on Vraks.

I understand that no one would support to rename the Death Korps Infantry Company to Death Korps Infantry Platoon even considering the fact that the formations size would suggest this  :grin:  The Rulebook gives precedence to this with with the Steel Legion Infantry Company (instead of Platoon). Even if i personally don't like it.

Try downloading again. This server is unpredictable and some downloads may fail.

Okay well I can explain what's happening:

The server stops the download randomly sometimes, meaning the file isn't fully downloaded.

Just save-as again to the same location, and if you're using a modern web browser it will automatically recover the download, adding on top of whatever you had managed to download previously.

A few thoughts:

P7 day 28, remove tab from start of first para
p8 top of page, another rouge tab

dont seem to be tabs look more like a first line indent? still seems inconsistent.

p9 in text box The First Assault  your using an em dash for the 973rd's  losses and a hyphen for the rebel forces.
*edit, on following pages rebel forces also have a hyphen not an em

use of hyphens and dashes throughout is a bit varied, seem to be using ems (without space) in section headings and ens   in sub headings?

p15 image captions, caption for infantry bases is left aligned (rest are centered)

p18 image captions, insufficient space between right side of caption and the pics

p19, should third war for Armageddon be capitalized? eg Third War, World War 2

p20 how to on trenchworks, captions have an odd first line indent not found elsewhere.  trenchworks should be hyphenated?

p24 and unit cards in general, too little guttering for justified text, especially with it siting on a baseline gird it can read as one column - for example see fire support last lines, your gutter space is less than some of the word spaces.

Consider increasing spacing between unit entires, currently the unit's heading is closer to to info table for the previous unit than the text for the unit it relates to.

P25, notes for thunderer, insert a space after the :

p29 image caption, change caption alignment, currently starts a few mm in and ends a few mm past the image.

p30 trojan has a blue border (assuming this is deliberate?)

p37  wrong font for captions

p40 wrong font in sup com's table

p41 wrong font for infantry table

p42 wrong font for engineers..this look to be the same for first unit table on each page

p48 wrong font for section title

p51 R HQ company , looks like you've condensed the font but kept the letter-spacing/tracking the same, tighten up the tracking on the condensed font (or just line break, looks a bit odd as it is anyway)

p52 top of second column, tidy up the orphan

other overall comments:

Throughout your using an 'x' (eg the letter) not a multiplication sign.

Throughout the font used for page numbers look like its changing between a serif and a sans at times.

Look at spacing between text and image boxes, often rather close. possibly look at your paragraph spacing and spacing in general as regards the use of your baseline grid, as your use of space is often out of kilter with the hierarchy and relationship of headings/info etc.

You really like the em dash?  :laugh:

p4 bullet point list, tighten up spacing between the bullets and the text, also not sure underlining is needed, its already bold and in bullet points

p11 image caption, superscript th in 979th

p14 & 15 caption formating inconsistent with rest of book  

p34, baneblade, 2nd text column, tidy up orphan

p38 last para first line indent

'losses boxes' early on in book, look at the leading, you've got ascenders clashing with the underlining - eg page 10, the fourth assault, top of the 4 in 974 is touching the underlining.
