I just received my copy from Amazon this morning. I am very pleasantly surprised. The pictures came out very clearly. The cover is in full color and the inside is in black and white. I am very happy with how it turned out.

Kickstarter - Sea Dog Miniatures

I just jumped in on the Sea Dog Game Studios kickstarter. They are modifying their neat looking game to work with 6mm miniatures. I have long wanted some of their 15mm models but the investment commitment was too much. But the 6mm one seems that I could. I got the $40 pack with a pair of ships and the rules. It should finish out in July. I am looking forward to this.

The Campaign for Kharkov now in Print

I managed to get the settings right and now the Campaign for Kharkov can be purchased on Amazon both as a kindle book and as a hardcopy. The link to the hard copy is here.

The link to the kindle version is here.

You will notice that this is MUCH cheaper than my print version of In the Name of Roma. This is because I am using a beta feature on Amazon where they do direct print that is much cheaper than Createspace. I have not ordered a sample yet but will before the day is up.

The Campaign For Kharkov Pint Sized Campaigns are Complete

I have finished the work on the pint sized campaigns. There are two campaigns designed for the Chain of Command rules from TooFatLardies. But these can be applied to any skirmish level rule system. One covers the advance of the German 57th Infantry Division and the other the German 101st Light Division. The attack came in October of 1941. This city would be the site of three major battles for the city. The interesting aspect of the October 1941 battle is in the nature of the troops involved. The Soviets had superiority in armor. The Germans advanced with only a single STUG battalion in support of the 57th ID. The Soviets fielded the T34 as well as several improvised armored vehicles such as the KhTZ-16. While not a success on the battlefield, it demonstrated the Soviet inventiveness under the extreme pressure of the blitzkrieg.

There are twelve total scenarios in the campaign. Full force lists are availible for both German Divisions and the Soviet troops present. Maps are based on aerial reconnaissance photographs taken by German troops in September 1941.

I will be adding this to Wargames Vault later today. But it is availible here for only $6.00 US. Simply PayPal the money to my account - cstoesen@corecard.com and I will email you the PDF.

I would appreciate any reviews that I can get either here on the blog or on Wargames Vault. Thanks.

Note that a Kindle and a hard copy will be available on Amazon within the next couple of days. Stay tuned.
