Spotlight Article Graphic

Norm Smith, in his Battlefields and Warriors blog, continues on his project of choosing one scale and a 'go to' set of rules for Napoleonics. In this post, he's comparing Valour & Fortitude (…feels like a slicker application of [Black Powder], which I like.), versus Shadow of the Eagles (…has a whiff of old school charm about it, which I also like.). And as to scale: "…I do wonder whether deciding on a scale will finally simply come down to a case of mind over heart or heart over mind!"

Six videos chronicle the strategies of the major Gallic forces at play, differentiating future Belgians, Burgundians, and Celts against the invading Romans. Can you repeat the desperate gambles that Caesar made to win an Empire? Or will Vercingetorix finally get his revenge?
