Let's not forget that X-Wing was let's just say "inspired" by Ares Games "Wings of Glory" (formerly "Wings of War")WWI aerial combat game. Add to that miniatures with card movement based "Sails of Glory" and the WWII version of Wings of Glory released long bef...

If I recall correctly CM is not RTS, rather turn based you issue orders and then play the turn out. That would be a critical different IMO. Also in SD you spend a lot of time zoomed out issuing orders.

I can say one thing after looking at the new CM offerings - SD costs far less $$ !

Bill a quick explanation on the "Two Fat Lardies" games in the tournament area. This was a two day schedule of games featuring various rule sets by Two Fat Lardies, so not a tournament at all but only located there. There were multiple games of Chain of Command (WWII skirmish game and far ...

Good on the TL:DR at the end. One could also add Too little too late, in particular after the botched release of FOG v2. A substantial number of the FOG tourney crowd in the US has shifted to ADLG and not without good reason. ADLG is a streamlined mash up of FOG and the various DBx systems which has...

Perhaps a theme for a future article would be which TW title gets the most out of the many available "Realism" mods out there. Certainly grognards are happier playing N:TW with Darthmod installed.

BTW did they get rid of those silly war dog units from Rome I?

"1809 Napoleon's Danube Campaign" is also a good one for campaign generation. Zucker again I believe!

I agree AP - pretty steep learning curve as well. Have you looked at the Kreigspiel forum? They have some SOW mods which may help with the formation problems. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://kriegsspiel.forumotion.net/f32-scourge-of-war">http://kriegsspiel.forumotion.net/f32-scourge-of-wa...

Bill you mentioned that ROF works well with a mouse. Does this mean you can fly reasonably well using just a mouse? I always had the impression that ROF was in the sim/joystick only category!

Just as an FYI you can adjust the game speed to "Bullet Time" which is effectively a pause button. I also struggle with RTS games being an older board and miniature gamer myself. I think the campaigns, despite the curveballs, offer good variety for the solo gamer, rather then just skirmish...
