A couple of must-haves for you this week – a very fast-play set of ACW rules with a good pedigree, and the latest in the Universal Napoleonic Wargames Rules series by Chris Flaherty – every home should have one… well, every Napoleonic army.

The Seven Years War military history and the Wurttemburg cavalry uniforms books came in, and went out this week, as have the Honey and Desert Tiger from Gale Force Nine.

So, what with all that, plus Red Thunder, etc., and all that new Rubicon, it's a bit of a bumper week.


H25376 Age of Valor: Thunder in the East. Russia at War 1877-1904 / – This is an independent Age of Valor (AOV) expansion chapter or mini-module for Age of Eagles II, also known as Napoleonic Fire & Fury. As such, AOE II is needed to properly play this game, but includes changes unique to the Balkan War. In most cases, all rules changes have been embedded in the Data Charts, as well as the charts and tables on the Quick Reference Sheet. All players need to do is use these new specifications or DRMs with the original rules and then play as normal. £11.50 GBP
