<t>Thanks for the shout out Bill. Very nice write up. Little did I know I would have to sprint to the dealer hall as soon as I got to the convention to pick up the "Bataille Empire" rules! Of course at the time I hadn't pulled out my compass and map to figure out where it was located. As it turned o...

Bill - Bataille Empire is available now and I believe On Military Matters has it. Will find out in a few days at Fall In.

That bomber game is reminiscent of the old AH B-17 game.

<t>Excellent commentary Colonel. I at one time spent time in a Btn TOC in Germany (As HHC XO I had responsibility to set it up). Now you have me wondering why they couldn't have used the real 1:50,000 maps in the game!!<br/> <br/> Another thought I had was for the modern warfare this may not work be...

<r>Bill:<br/> <br/> Nice list - especially "The Admiral" !<br/> <br/> When I started sailing on a square rigged ship the captain recommended Harland's book to the crew. It is an excellent reference. Just to add several suggestions for US history:<br/> <br/> Ian Toll's "Six Frigates" is an excellent ...

This reminds me of the old AH game: Kingmaker. We used to use that game as a campaign setting for table top miniatures.

Actually the other way around - I pasted from here to TMP! ;)

PS - Oak & Iron is 17th century and while the focus is not specifically on the A-D wars they certainly have the models for it!

<t>Rather than echo issues brought up on TMP, as an age of sail grognard, I have been waiting for play through videos on YT at a minimum. Suffice it to say that some of what I have seen is troubling for those looking for granularity in combat. For those gamers who don't know the difference between a...

Nice write up. I am most interested in pre-dreadnoughts and dreadnoughts though, so I will wait for "Ultimate Admiral Dreadnought". I think having played miniatures games onboard the USS Olympia predisposes me to the early ships!! No pesky aircraft for me, ok maybe WWI era!

<t>Bill did you see the "new" style mats appearing at Historicon? The mats with tuffs of flock? Also someone is selling pre-made teddy bear fur mats? Seems people are trying to go a step further than the Cigar box style mats. I can't recall the companies involved but did see that The Wargames Compan...
