Who prints and binds for you?

my dad did it for free in work, but if you go to any local printers and ask if you can have it printed duplex or in book form and binded they shouldn't charge you more than 1-2£/

as a Pre view RE view, lol
i have just got them in my hands and they (even just as a PDF) ARE VERY PRETTY!!!

What about the rules? There is a solo option but I would like to know if it as good as Chain Reaction could be... :)

The solo mechanisms between CR and FF (and other ganesha games) are handled differently. Both systems rely on the solo to make logical tactical decisions for both sides. In CR this tends to become masked somewhat due to the reaction mechanism, but even so, you still must decide the opposition's tactics when it activates. In FF and other ganesha engine products, the lack of a CR-like reaction system leaves many battlefield decisions in your hands. Some results cause individual and group morale checks and withdrawals, so there's some involuntary reactions, but not to the extent of CR.

I think either mechanism works well for solo, but you have to make logical choices for each side.

You can easily decide on a range of possible options in each situation and then dice for which occurs.

Ordered mine, printed it, bound it and read through half of it so far. I like what I'm reading.
