Murat

After "Killer Colin" managed to get 1 Murat model killed in our last 1-day game, I thought we better get some reinforcements (or doppelgangers) for the poor man. Still to be based but here's another one for you Colin http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/1600x1200q90/921/iv2wW8.jpg http://imagizer.images...

Re: Plancenoit,1815. BUAs?

Paul

A subject close to my heart, as I wrestle with a way to represent both Aspern & Essling in a realistic but playable way.

Need to have some radical thoughts & lots of playtests, some of which you'll undoubtedly be involved in, to get the feel "right".

More thoughts to come.

Re: SALUTE 2016 - What did we think?

Dave Neither Barry or myself got much of a look round, but the show certainly seems to have become sci-fi/fantasy dominated (probably due to companies paying the Warlords huge sums for trade stands). There were some nice historical games, particularly the 7YW game from Bill Gaskin & a 40mm Napoleoni...

Yes you had your own special challenge on the flank you were fighting on, will you be bringing out a book " Tales of the Riverbank - A Lesson in Diplomacy" :wink: :wink: :wink:

Bill
You're definitely on the list, you will be an Austrian commander, a first for you I think.

Look forward to seeing Sunday.

Re: One day game in Irvine mid- late March

Hi Paul As you excelled at Waterloo in the guise of Napoleon, it wouldn't be fair if we didn't let you represent the Great Man at Leikzig :D :D :D Will you be able to save your army from the vast Austrian & Russian armies attempting to encircle & destroy you. Look forward to seeing you Sunday. Bob
