You might emphasize that "modified" means "totally personal invention."

He's been saying "I'm playing CC:N" when it's really his own stuff, not anything GMT has actually released.

Take up your problem with the staff; not me.
I was just paraphrasing the event listing.
Go away.

He did have a point; it was a personal variation of the C&C Napoleonics with his own rules and cards. Still, I got a chance to play two of the scenarios offered, Ligny and Waterloo, and I had a blast. If it is anything close to Borg's C&C, Napoleonics is going to be another game added to my collection.

Not true Kevin...and you know it (from the previous threads where you were troll-ing)

Every post I've written here has made it crystal clear that I couldn't wait for the published version, so I created my own Napoleonic era adaptation based on the C&C: Ancients rules. I did this more than a year ago (which was before GMT announced the release of C&C: Napoleonics.)

I own C&C: Ancients, a couple expansions, and have pre-ordered C&C: Napoleonics. GMT and Richard have my money....Not sure what your problem is.

Lastly, My listing for Little Wars was...
"Refight the battle of Ligny using the GM's adaptation of the rules to Command & Colors: Ancients for the Napoleonic era."

Also pretty clear.

Now stop being a D-bag, other people are trying to have fun.

And it WAS fun.

Little Wars is a great event. Lots of impressive-looking wargame tables with great looking minis; A super vendor area where I was able to pick up some cool books (including Foundry's 'Napoleon').

The events that I put on were alot of fun. The players enjoyed them, and I enjoyed putting it on...Ligny x 2 and Waterloo allowed me to get my newly painted Prussians on the table.

Here are some pics...Will post Little Wars pics soon:
