Didn't see this here and CSW is down so for anyone that might be interested, these are this year's Charles Roberts awards winners.

Conflict of Heroes was the big winner - winning best WWII game, best graphics and Uwe took the Dunnigan.

Warriors of God won the best pre-WWII game. Red Dragon Rising won best modern game. June '44 won best DTP game.

Best magazine was C3I and best magazine game was Iwo Jima: Rage Against the Marines.

All my best to Uwe for an outstanding year and to such a great game!

Also, just on a personal note, I was very glad to see Bruce Costello get a Charlie as he has had several nominations but finally broke through and won this year. Bruce's work on Victory in Vietnam and Drop Shot in particular were outstanding games in the hobby.

My apologies that I don't remember the winners in the articles categories.

Thanks for posting this, I did not realize that I had won a Charlie. Things are a bit confused with the CSW forums being down.

Could someone post Charlie's nomination game and winner? I see only the winner but not the loser. :)
