<t>So that's why registration was such a breeze!!<br/> <br/> I was hard pressed to find the progress in the Host renovation since Fall In. I'll give them a pass on the parking lot and the exterior due to the season. Hopefully we'll see something between now and Historicon. Looking forward to 2019 th...

<t>Looks great! I am with you. The eating establishments are much nicer downtown and you don't have to choose the hot dog stand or losing your parking spot to go eat!<br/> <br/> As for the hotel rooms I for one had not stayed in the Host for 10 years, so there is no reason (other than parking) to st...

+1 recommendation on "Eagle in the Snow". Excellent book well worth the read, especially if you are snowed in!

<t>Possibly by sight as I have been going to HMGS events since the early 90s - I am often playing in the ADLG (previously FOG or Warhammer Ancients) tournaments. I believe I saw you stopping by the Two Fat Lardies games at Fall-In (Saturday). I am pretty sure I have played in an "Age of Eagles" game...

<t>Great review. ADLG has taken over the tournament scene at least on the US East Coast and HMGS events. In my view ADLG has streamlined what came before leading to shorter game times and in most cases less headache inducing tournament rounds (after 2 games of FOG my brain was fried!). I did like FO...

I remember "back in the day" when a game like Panzerblitz could be had for $12. Now that's old school, sigh.

Often cavalry will break off from infantry rather than stay for prolonged melee - unless they can disorder the infantry. So heavy cavalry against legions in the center may not do much.

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 before Warlord's version.

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 $$ !

<t>Bill a quick explanation on the "Two Fat Lardies" games in the tournament area. <br/> <br/> 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...
