Kind of a Bruce fan for his rules.
Any place there a list that compiles all his works that pertain to rule sets?

Not sure if that is just a typo but it's Rea-Taylor.

I don't know of a definitive list in a single place but they don't seem hard to find (Amazon, Google, Boardgamegeek, etc)…

Probably not definitive but a start;

Didn't know he died when he was 40. Poor chap.

Missed greatly. I think the modern micro tank game never recovered from the loss of his contribution. Like Ian S Beck who also died young your left wondering how their rule writing would have developed.

I'm a big fan of his rules too.

A terrible loss to his family, and the gaming community.

To this day, I think Mr. Rea-Taylor produced the best modern simulation out there.

Grimmnar, when you see most of his work laid out as you have done you realize no one really took up the baton.

Gasp……. your missing his 50's and 60's army lists and his corps commander rules!

I quite like the 6mm scenery photos on your blog. I appreciate these were made in 2013 but, what scenic flock scatter material did you use as it looks just right.
