Hello everybody!

After much discussing, here we are with the errata for "Dawn of War".

Have fun,

Andrea


STONGER PLANES

First of all, due to not so good Italian sources, some planes have been published weaker than due.

This are the new statistics for the Wildcat/Martlet:
Grummann F4F-3 Wildcat/Martlet III fire 2B / B damage 17
Grummann F4F-4 fire 3B / A+B damage 18
So this is how the cards should look like:

Reggiane Re.2002 Ariete has been underarmed too. Real fire statistics should be A+B / B
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/269372

So for the general scenario at the last paraghraph of page 4 of rulebook the Grummann F4F-3 Wildcat/Martlet III (both of which use the D deck) can be added. The option with weaker planes at the start of page 5 is now pointless.

First scenario of pag. 19, second of page 20, first of page 21 and the one at page 22 can be played with two Mitsubishi A6M2 Reisen instead than the Hayabusas.

Second scenario of pag. 19 can now be played with two Nakajima Ki-43-IIb Hayabusa at half-ruler distance from the Axis side against a Grummann F4F-4 Wildcat at half-ruler distance from the Allied side. The Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb, the Supermarine Seafire Mk.IIc and the Grummann F4F-4 Wildcat can replace each onter, also in the 109/2002 version of thìis scenario and also in the second scenario of page 20.

In the first scenario of pag. 20, replace the two Reggiane Re. 2002 with two Nakajima Ki-43-IIb Hayabusa (I know it's unhistorical...).

2nd scenario at pag. 20, variants, becomes: "Alternatively, the Axis Player takes a Mitsubishi A6M2 Reisen with an ace pilot: He chooses two skills." (notice that skills become two).

2nd scenario at pag. 21, variant with Wildcat taking pictures, becomes "Variants: Use a Nakajima Ki-43-IIb Hayabusa and a Mitsubishi A6M2 Reisen against two Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat/Martlet III. The plane taking pictures is the Hayabusa."


OTHER ERRATA

pag.6, erase second paragraph: "If a card has only a arrowhead, don't take into account the marker on it. When you plan, you can put any speed marker on the card, no matter if it matches the arrow."

pag. 11, 1st column, second paragraph, erase "The tailing plane may then change the first planned maneuvre of the tailing plane".

pag. 12, second column, line 1, read "High Speed" instead than "Low Speed".

pag. 14, colonna 1, riga 6: replace "(unless the skill staters otherwise" with ", except for Golden touch."

At pag. 14, col. 2, par. 3 becomes "Exceptional pilot: This pilot can use the same maneuver card twice in succession. Take the speed marker with the symbol of this skill and add it to the others. When you plan your move and you want to use a maneuver twice in a row, you can put any card on the console as a fake (it is not relevant which) and that marker on it: when you reveal them, use the maneuver card you used last instead of the one revealed. Speed remain the same of the previous maneuver. The speed marker is returned among the others.".

At pag. 14, col. 2, par. 5 becomes "For all other maneuvres, the restrictions of the reused card are again taken into account. So for example, you can not plan this skill marker after an Immelmann"

In PLAYTESTING, our great pilot Riccardo "Myzska" Caneba must be added!

Any way we can get updated plane cards? Or have them included in a squadron pack or expansion?

Well, sooner or late we will have to update them in a future edition of the box, if the first one sells out, were we will have to change the name too into "The Dawn of World War II". We will also feature them in the miniature Ariplane Packs, at least for the Wildcat/Martlet that are expected next year (Reggiane is not in short term planes yet). Of course putting these cards in a Squadron Pack could be another way to help people to get them without buying a second copy of the box. I'll speak with Nexus about that.

Thanks for adding the errata card images to the BGG image gallery.
I printed them off, and stuck them in card. Looks fine.

Don't worry, FFG got everything. We'll study how and when we could update all. Thanks!

Yes, a very seriouis publisher indeed. The customer service too seems to be really quick and accurate, for what I see.

I found one more error on the rulebook.
Page 12, Column 2, under FIRING, line 3, it refers "the target takes only one card of damage". Damage cards were used in WoW WWI series, not in WWII series now.

Just bought the game a few days ago, it's first edition. Is there any way I can get the erroneous cards replaced, or should I try to return the whole box to the store?
