The latest from GMT on the Epic battles expansion taken from their website.

Map Issues Causing a Game Delay. OK, I'm going to lead with the bad news. I was prepping this update Tuesday night when I got an update from Tony informing me that we have big trouble with the maps in Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion 6: Epic Napoleonics. We saw and approved the proofs as usual from our printers, but somehow wires got crossed and the printers shipped us full boxed expansions that were missing one of the maps and had the other printed incorrectly. So we have the entire lot of several thousand boxes in the warehouse with bad or missing maps, and that's a big mess at the moment. Tony is working with the printers to get the maps reprinted and reshipped, but it's going to take a while for everything to be right. Our best estimate right now is that this will delay shipping of the expansion until December. We're really sorry for the delay, and will keep you guys updated as we get more details and know what the reshipping schedule looks like.

Not sure if GMT are like this with other games or whether it's just C&C? Most expansions have typos or errors in some scenarios; we had the miss-coloured Persian blocks and Barbarian blocks and who could forget / forgive those wafer-thin Spanish and Spartan tiles?

Something I hadn't realised is that contrary to the blurb on the GMT website that states
"2 Battlefield map boards
When the map boards are set up side-by-side, they form an EPIC size battlefield of 11 hexes deep by 20 hexes wide. The reverse side forms the La Grande battlefield of 11 hexes deep by 26 hexes wide."
www.gmtgames.com/p-575-commands-colors-n...pic-napoleonics.aspx

the actual Contents lists
"2 EPIC Battlefield map boards (left and right)
2 La Grande Battlefield map sheets (left and right)"

As I understand it, the mis-print is the two La Grande Battlefield maps mounted on boards, with no reverse. (so no EPIC boards). On the whole though, I'd rather have 2 mounted LG mapboards over 2 map sheets!
