And They're Off!

The docs for the second edition of Beneath the Lily Banners are off to the printer. As soon as we get a look at the proofs, pre-orders will be available on the League of Augsburg site and the books should be ready soon after. Now Barry and I can put our feet for a week or so before starting work on something new. Irons in the fire...

1. A set of rules for the ACW based on a simplified version on Republic to Empire, modified further to better reflect the period. This is pretty far along the development stage so may be up next.
2. A set of rules for ECW/TYW based on my mini-set, Victory Without Quarter. I have to write this and work will hopefully start soon and in parallel with the other projects.
3. A scenario book (or three) and period guide for Beneath the Lily Banners. We have talked about getting involvement from other authors so if you want to try your hand at writing scenarios for the period, drop one of us a note...


  1. Great news!!! The scenario book for BLB sounds VERY interesting!!

  2. Very much looking forward to seeing a copy. i'm sure it will be up to and maybe even top the high standards set already by BLB and R2E.

    Can't wait in fact..... I know! I'm a big kid :O)))


  3. While my preference would be for the ECW project, the other two would probably be more timely and profitable . . . *sigh* . . . oh well, I'm concentrating on Colonials for the next year or so anyway.

    Game well, Clarence.

  4. Ah hem. You seem to have forgotten about the scenario book (or three) of Central European 1813 Napoleonic scenarios. Not that I'm biased in anyway what so ever!! 8O)

    The quantity of your output makes me feel weak all over just thinking about. Now stop shirking and get on with it!!! 8O))

  5. Perhaps the good von Peter himself would deign to lift pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to contribute scenarios for his heroic Prussians?

  6. Hi

  7. I'm with Von Peter, books for 1812/13 .. My Russians need Frenchmen to chase away and put that little Corsican back into the bottle :)
