Topic: Industry News: Craig Taylor, miniatures and board game rules' writer, passes away
Craig Taylor, a rules writer of both miniatures and board games, has passed. He had a part in the creation of: Wooden Ships and Iron Men, Napoleon's Battles, Flat Top, Air Force, Macchiavelli, Sergeants!, Ship o’ the Line, half of Naval War, Development on Empires in Arms. He was also a major contributing factor behind Swasbuckler, Armor, Battle, and Ironclads.
The information was passed on to us from the Napoleon's Battles Yahoo group.
The message was as follows: "Bob Coggins asked me to let everyone know that Craig Taylor passed away this week. Cause of death was undetermined at this time, but will be available later, I'm sure. Bob's computer is down at the moment so he will not be able to respond to any questions on line. We will let everyone know more details as they become available. Craig was a prolific and successful miniatures and board game historical rules writer and co-author of Napoleon's Battles. I've known him since his Avalon Hill days when I was one of the staff playtesters on Avalon Hill's version of the Australian Napoleonic game "Empires in Arms," which Craig shepherded through the redesign effort and publication. His integrity and willingness to go the extra mile in game development was well known. He was an amazing game designer and developer with a long list of titles to his credit. The hobby has lost a true professional, a true friend. He will be missed."
Thank you for your contributions Craig. Rest In Peace
