Chaps

First - thank you again for getting BKCIV out to market - very much appreciated ...and just starting to read it.

Slight problem there though - no sooner than started leafing the pages, than they started to tear out from the bottom.

Sat with my gaming pal ...starting to read our books for the first time ...and both books started to rip multiple pages within a few minutes.

Hopefully its just a few duff pages (not a problem) ...but will advise if not as read more.

Anyone else reported this problem please?
Thanks

Adam - I expect yours (plus Crossfires and Dr Dave's) are the most 'thumbed' sets  Grin

I'm sure Leon will pick up on this.

My own is still in pretty good nick though

Sadly we had a few BKC-III copies that did this and we'd spoken to the publishers about it specifically.  Let me know if they continue to shed pages and become un-usable and we'll get replacements out to you.

Hello Everyone,

I thought it was just a fluke that my rule book was coming apart but I see others are having the same problem. The bottom of the pages are separating from the binding. Mine started coming loose beginning with page 5 and spreading so far to page 20. I do hope these reports are few and far between. Cheers.

Hi

Sadly mine started to come apart a few weeks ago, didn't want to report it then for the same reasons as Solo General. Sad

Wire binding is best for wargames rules so they can lie flat when open on the table. With the best will in the world youíve always got to refer to them for those odd little rules that are seldom used, or just as a reminder when youíve laid off a rule set for a few months. Best sets I have come across for it are Impetus, FK&P, TtS, Square Bashing and the like. Worst are the big hard bound efforts, like the BP stable and the Saga Universes.

I like the plastic comb binders. I have taken a couple of soft-bound rulebooks to Staples in the past, and they've sliced them up and bound them for a very modest fee. RIP Staples.

We also have the binding machine at work so I can bind all my print-your-own rules that I want.

One of the first things I did when I retired was buy a comb binder and a laminater. Two of the best purchases Iíve made in the last ten years.

I use sheet protectors and binders for QRSs and other cheat sheets.  Iíve got some rules that the bindings are getting beat up on.  Iíll probably do the same with them too.  They are great for binding PDF rules.  You can change out pages or make annotations easily.  They come in many sizes.

I'll probably get the PDF once the amendments have been done, unfortunately it seems to be coming loose from the bottom to the mid point! I try not to break the bind, but you are right, I have been thumbing through it a bit!
