Historicon 2008 came and went (gosh, has it really been that long) and we proudly announced that our long awaited AOE scenario book will make its debut. Our first expansion to the rules covers the Befrieungskrieg 1813 - 14, the famous War of Liberation where the combined forces of Austria, Prussia, Russia, Britain and Sweden attempt to subdue France. This campaign was chosen not only because of the many colorful armies involved, but also due to the fact that reform and Napoleon not being at every battle actually gives the Allies a fighting chance. We also decided to concentrate on battles both large (Dennewitz) and small (Schestedt), but emphasizing engagements that are not that well known.
And we also have a second expansion scenario pub, Age of Honor. This time we cover the Lace Wars, from the War of the Spanish Succession thru the little known non-war, the War of Bavarian Succession. So who wants to get their inner Marlborough or Marshal Saxe on? Let's take a look at what's inside, and if you'd like a test drive, click here.
