Book of War: Command and Control

Posted on October 19th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I love Fantasy gaming but I love none of the current rule-sets out there. It is a little bit of Goldilocks syndrome, but I think we can do better than them. Since the only ‘mainstream’ set is WHFB, there is no established player base to consider anyway…
