If all goes as planned, a scenario editor will be included.

I didn't care much for Napoleonics at first either. But when we've been covering the Civil War for over 10 years, (if you count Take Command), it doesn't hurt to switch gears for a while. If you start researching the Napoleonic era--the battles, commanders, tactics, etc., it's actually a pretty fascinating time in history.

I'll always be a Civil War guy at heart too.. But again, it's always good to have a change of scenery from time to time.

I wonder if I will have to purchase Waterloo to get the Scenario Editor? I have stated before that I would pay good money for the Editor, and if so, I guess the game is thrown in for free....

I have a love for the Civil War, could care less about the French, Waterloo, or whoever...and I know it's just not about me....

Interesting post. Almost all wargame refights of Waterloo I've been involved with or heard about, the French win!

On paper the French have a very good chance, but their defeat on the day was probably due to a long string of tactical errors. With hindsight a French player should not make the same mistakes.

Even so, in a campaign context, it is a tough job for the French because even if he drives Wellington back, Napoleon still has three effective corps of Prussians to deal with - again!
