Initial Impressions and Questions

Post by korvus » Sun Mar 02, 2008 6:31 pm

Hello,

I just picked up the rulebook and first two army books the other day. I must say my initial impression of the product was very good, appearance, organization, etc, were all outstanding. Now that I have a few reads through the rules under my belt it also appears that the rules are clear, well illustrated with examples, and look like they will be fun to play. Unfortunately I can't make Cold Wars next weekend, but fortunately a friend of mine is in the same boat, and we're going to take the rules out for a spin next Saturday. I'll be sure to report our experiences.

I have a few questions that searching the forum hasn't illuminated me on:

- Is there a plan for a future expansion to include items like boats and ships, in-game mounting and dismounting, and the like?
- I'm assuming there will be a Wallachian/Moldavian list in the Ottoman list book, is that correct?

Whatever the case, I am deeply curious about the list. A bit of a hash up has been made of it in the past, and its of some interest to me whether sources like Jehan d'Wavrin's first hand account of campaigning with Dracula's father and brothers, Dracula's letters and other contemporary documents, and the painted church frescoes of contemporary troops will finally be taken into account.

Ever hopeful,
Cole

I dont think so but let one of the authors confirm this.

Ship to ship fighting could be interesting.

I have just been testing out FOG mechanisms for naval warfare .... Salamis may be a possibility! Yes they are planned for a campaign supplement.
