Fantastic art as always. I really like how it has so many pillars whicih can create great effects when using the line of site feature in Fantasy Grounds. Should give my player the willies knowing there is a medusa somewhere amount the pilliars (oh no- there's actually two that are twins)!
I like this - the art is really nice. I feel this is an excellent map for use in Waterdeep Dragon Heist or a location for Storm King's Thunder should you visit the city of splendors. You can use it in any city campaign.
This is a great publication. I was fortunate enough to get it on deal of the day so was doubly pleased. I have played several of the scenarios and they are just what a wargamer wants. Enough information to put the action into context and then all the OOBs, maps, scenario specific rules and victory conditions. While I do not use command decision rules the scenarios are easily convertible to my preferred Fistful of TOWs rules. One of the best things about the scenarios is that they cover small to large actions and there is an index giving all the details so you can find exctly what you want very easily....
A very nice set of scenarios derived from Avalance Press Panzer Grenadier scenarios. The author has provided copies of original scale maps from that time period. The scenarios are written from a Command Decission stand point with OBs and weapons characteristics, but are easily convertable to any rule set that has a stand/counter representing a platoon. Well worth the cost.
The quality of the map is very good for the price. This can work in a fantasy, horror, or even western style (Deadlands) game. The files were pretty large and I had top use GIMP in order to reduce the size to a more managable chucnk since I am using them on Roll 20. Overall, a great product.

Nearly half the included items are modern day looking items, from microwaves and fridges to basic furniture (desks, chairs, tables) that look straight out of Ikea. Extremely dissapointing, and results in a very limited selection of usable objects.
These are the Napoleonic naval rules that in my opinion can work brilliantly with the miniatures produced by Sails of Glory. The combination of Sails of Glory ships (minus the irritating bases) and GFAAOS is a real winner. Fast play, yet more than enough complexity to make a major naval action engrossing to play. A thumbs-up from me.
I was thrilled to bits to find that someone had developed a comprehensive set of scenarios for the 1940 blitzkrieg battles and I grabbed the Germans vs French and Germans vs Brits straight away. The books are comprehensive and offer good background information, orders of battle and terrain maps. I'm very happy with them.
I had recently walked the Gembloux battlefields and I was beginning to prepare a couple scenarios for gaming, when I became aware of these. The scenarios are written primarily for the Command Decision ruleset, but will convert easily to any set that share the same platoon/element structure. I converted a couple to Spearhead without difficulty. This is a superb resource for gaming the Gembloux battles. Whilst not a professional production, the scenarios are nice and clearly laid out and also provide a good mix of scenario sizes. The author provides good historical background, detailed well researched Orbats, and an excellent gaming map alongside a contemporary contour map of the battle site. I wish that I had this available to me when I visited the battlesites.
The research that has gone into these scenarios is impressive, so much so that I went on to buy the authors full collection of 50 French 1940 scenarios, from which these are a subset. ...
I was a bit shocked to find that someone has left a two star review rating for this product. I feel this is wholly undeserved. For a long time I have researched, developed and gamed scenarios taken from the battle of France 1940, I have even been able to walk some of the battlefields to get a better understanding of how the battles developed the way they did. I can say without hesitation that, based on my own analysis and experiences, the quality of of the work that has gone into this scenario collection is outstanding. The Orbats are spot on, the scenario mapping is faithful to the actual terrain and the scenarios are well chosen, both in terms of interest and gaming challenge. Whilst the scenarios are written with the Command Decision ruleset in mind (personally I prefer the somewhat simpler Spearhead) there is ample information within each scenario to convert these to other rulesets that use the same basic platoon based element structure. I have no hesitation in giving this collect...
