Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

The pdf for my planned Great Northern War expansion has arrived. If you wish to be part of the playtesting process reply here or send me a geekmail. The game will require a lot of terrain, so you will either have to mix and match terrain hexes from Hold the Line and Frederick's War or use the VASSAL module.

Count me in again. Is the rule set the same as Frederick's War?

I am trying to release the Vassal mod tonight, so it should be easier to set up that terrain.

I'd be delighted to give them a try. Any plans for a "Marlborough's battles" pack?

Send me your e-mail!

Yes, I have done some preliminary work on that. I hope to bundle it with Maurice de Saxe's battles.

Judd or anyone else let me know if you want to try this on Vassal by email.

I've set up a Vassal Map game for the battle of Fraustadt - The Swedish Cannae. If anyone want to play test that with me send me a message.

"Peter the Great" by Robert Massie has a fair bit on the war. Massie is a wonderful historian and easy to read (despite the length of the volume). Would be great if there were something comparable on Charles XII.

Is this still going ahead? I see there is an image of the Battle of Poltava playtest from 2014. I would really like the Swedish and Russian armies and battles.

Still going ahead under a new name. I have a VASSAL module and have been working on scenarios.
