The working title is Honours of War, a phrase I found in Donald Featherstone's book on this period, Wargames Through the Ages 1420-1783,
'On the wargame table each commander will endeavour to manoeuvre the enemy
The definition of the phrase in the Collins dictionary is,
|I have enjoyed a few games of Dux Bellorum, courtesy of my old muckers Steve and Craig|
The work so far has been great - my knowledge of the period is now much improved, and the intellectual exercise of getting everything together has been very rewarding. Phil at Osprey has been helpful and supportive - having the backing of a decent-sized publisher will make this project so much more enjoyable. Assuming all goes well, it will be great to get my work out there and see what people think about it. And then there will be the buzz of going to wargames shows or visiting blogs and seeing people enjoying playing games with my rules. Plus I might even make a few quid to spend on more toys!

Publication date is planned for November 2015, so there's plenty of time. Hope you can get involved.
