I just recently learned that prolific game designer and an old time miniature gaming companion Arnold Hendrick passed away this past May. Arnold was an intensely bright, driven and productive game designer – one of the special one who found success in the computer gaming field.

Sincere condolences to his family. It was a privilege to have known him and gamed with him. May he rest in peace and always pass his morale checks.

I am so sorry to hear that. Anyone subscribing to the original NEWA Courier in the 1960's 1970's would likely recall him as an original thinker (1944, Sword and Spear, Ancient Warfare were among his rules titles), and of course as the frequent foil to Dicks M. Gluteus!

Sad to hear this news. I looked at the obit, I had assumed he was older, just 69.

Sorry to hear about the passing of another gamer.

Arnold's 'Surface Warship' was a favorite back when.

I certainly remember the name. Don't know if we ever met.

I remember playing Ancient Warfare back in the 70s. His level of detail was much appreciated. I really liked his concepts. It was revolutionary in approach.

I was part of the NE group Arnold was part of 40 years ago. He was an inexhaustable force in our hobby, mostly miniature tabletop gaming in those days. Lost track of him when he moved out of the area. Noted his computer gaming career in the following years. Very sad, he was only two years older than I am.

That is sad. I had no idea we were only two years apart.

I first heard of him through the Courier NEWA days. His 1944 rules brught me rushing into the hobby. I too played a few games of his Surface Warship and Ancient Warfare. I still have the 1944 and Ancient Warfare rules. In fact i was just thinking of getthing the 1944 rules out and having a go with my 15's.

i recal he moved ontoHeritage and also SPI I think. After tha I lost track of him.

He was an amazing writer and thinker.
