Re: The Wargamer's Guide to... The best WW1 strategy games

Yes it has.

Joe wanted to do a refresh on the article given we are near the end of the 100th anniversary. He asked me to collaborate with him on an update given the original author had recently passed.

Re: Magnificent, But Not War: One Grog's Complicated Relationship with Hollywood History

Waterloo has several deliberate errors, though the idea that the Prussians wore black may well have been political. The movie was filmed in Russia and used Soviet military units for the 1000's of extras needed. As such the idea of saying the Russians wore black (actually dark blue mostly, grey other...

Re: Dragon Blade Meets Chandragupta – Two Big Mods For Field of Glory II

If this happens at all, it will likely be the Ancients segment of the hobby given their tournament based environment that promotes one on one play, small games and an historical era that spans multiple centuries. Countering this, of course, is the craft aspect, and the age of most players which is o...

Re: Magnesia – Field of Glory II as History

I was trying to play the game as close to historical reality as possible, and since they didn't do it that way back in 190 BC, neither did I.

Re: Mobile Warfare: A Wargamer's Guide to Gaming on Vacation

Re: Legacy Review: France ’14

Yes, I believe it does, although this depends on how you define challenging and how you define realistic.
