Great website. Shame I only discovered it a few days ago - as a tabletop gamer turned PC gamer this is just the sort of site I've been looking for! Helped myself to Ultimate General Civil War in the Steam sale - at under ??9, it was too much of a bargain to turn down!

I've struggled to find decent Wargames on the PC - and by that I mean games that focus you mainly on the battle. I don't mind a campaign of linked battles. But far too many of the more mainstream strategy games are all about the 'gather wood to build your stockade' stuff, rather than the actual battles. I want to get on with the fighting!

Main historical periods I'm interested in are: American Civil War; Ancients; and Napoleonic. I like the massed ranks on the single battlefield and still getting relatively up close and personal.
